4.  RGIII needs to protect himself:

In the last preseason game against the Cleveland Browns Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III put himself in positions where he sustained hits when it wasn’t necessary.  Trying to make big plays with your feet in a preseason game is a mistake for a quarterback and Griffin needs to realize that he needs to be in the lineup as healthy as possible for the Redskins offense to reach its potential.

So unless he has no choice he needs to throw the ball away if the pass isn’t there.  When he does run to the outside he needs to make sure not to turn the ball up field and get out-of-bounds.  His use of the baseball slide improved as the game went on Monday night, but RGIII doesn’t need to prove how tough he is.  His teammates know he’s tough.  Now they need to know that he’ll be smarter about protecting himself.     Redskins vs. Ravens
