The other reasons why I feel better is because of what I was telling alot of Skins fans. I said that he's getting hit alot and we are running alot of option stuff only due to injuiries. If Garcon is healthy then we throw alot more and run alot less options. That has been the case. We are throwing more & more and you can tell Shanny is getting more confident each game in throwning when 1st he was a lil cautious with a rookie and no Garcon.
Last but not least, the Shanny's you can tell have also changed. Less option stuff and you honeslty get the sense that its not always real options. Meaning early RG3 could keep it whenever he wants but now it seems as though the play is designed to hand it off no matter what on most occasions. Also we dont run the QB draw anymore although I could see that starting to come back since defenses probably think we wont do it again

The #1 reason I actually take him over Vick or Cam is because of his legs. No one looks at that. Coming out I knew he would be a good passer. Maybe not this good but I knew he was different & better than them because he was a pure passer who looked to throw 1st. I actually thought his legs were overhyped. He didnt have any juke moves in College like Cam, not the quickness like Vick, and he actually looked alot slower to me then they said.
Even in the Summer it seems like our defensive players were saying he's ok as a runner but not Vick and doesnt have that kinda burst. RG3 said he's holding back because its practice. Then the games start and in his 2nd & 3rd games he has like 84 & 77 yards rushing. The next week Cam gets like 70 yards and the commentator says its just the 1st or 2nd time in his career that he's ran for that much. I was shocked but found out it was true. Then RG3 has tha 150 yard rushing game and a 76yd td. Combine that with all the miracle escapes.
He's 10x better as a runner then I thought he would be. He actually looks like Chris Johnson. Its like long smooth glides where he's going alot faster than he looks. Now I think he's more of a threat with his legs than Cam & Vick are when coming in I thought he wasnt even close to them as a runner. Even alot of the media were saying the same thing. They said he's not Cam. They said obviously Cam is bigger but he's also alot more shiftier and a natural runner. They said RG3 wouldnt be half the runner Cam is. I felt the same way but its been the total opposite
