It isn’t that difficult Robert, you don’t have to be Vince Coleman out there. Feet first and get on the ground, but RG3 of course was a little over the top with his comments when asked about sliding. “I mean, if Bryce [Harper] wants to do that I’m definitely up for that,” Griffin said. “Bryce, we can do that if you want to, buddy.” “The problem is I’m not a great slider, should I say. I know how to slide, but I don’t know how to baseball slide, and I think that’s what they’re talking about,” he said. “But there is just more of an emphasis on sliding feet-first as opposed to going forward since that rule is in place. It protects you as a quarterback going backwards, going feet-first, so that’s what you’ve got to do, so just make a mental note of that and try to slide feet-first.” “You basically run up to a defender and you slide,” he said to laughter Wednesday. “It’s easier to slide with football pants on. The slickness of the pants, I know I’m going a little too deep here, but the slickness of the pants helps you slide. When you have shorts on and stuff like that, it’s a little less conducive to sliding on the practice field, but I have.” Robert it isn’t that serious, just get on the ground, don’t make it into rocket science.
