Found May 09, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Steelers safety Ryan Clark said that when they played the Redskins last season, they realized that being physical with quarterback Robert Griffin III would make him uncomfortable and help them win the game. “Our goal was to be physical with him at any opportunity we had, and I think it affected his play,” Clark said, per ProFootballTalk.com. It seems like being physical with any quarterback that likes to run will help a defense.  We’ve seen teams neutralize Michael Vick in the past by hitting him and the Ravens were pretty physical with Colin Kaepernick in last year’s Super Bowl.   Need NFL Tickets?
