In our common sense post of the day,  Redskins coach Mike Shanahan took time out from the league meetings going on to address his franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III. Shanahan while speaking about his quarterback told the  Washington Posts Mark Maske that his quarterback indeed “needs to learn to slide or throw the ball away to protect himself.” “Griffin will have to learn to slide, throw the ball away, protect himself, you can’t take shots consistently,” Shanahan said, via Mark Maske of theWashington Post.

We will see how long Griffin III and that read option last.
