Receivers don't physically exaggerate and hit the ground the way other athletes do upon contact, but the amount of whining they do after just a little bit of contact (or none at all) is soccer-caliber already.
Refs need to understand the difference from him vs Tom Brady.
Brady runs to the sideline, he doesn't have potential to turn upfield. So a hit on him should be a penalty. Rg3 and the like can't be considered out of bounds until they are, and need to be on the same level as a RB because they essentially have become one when they cross scrimmage.
Isn't there a rule now that states that once the QB is running outside of the pocket, he is to be considered the same as a RB?
my qb needs to shut up and get some fricking wins
That sentiment was misconstrued by some members of the media, which caused Griffin III to address the situation again on Friday morning with Redskins.com.
“Some people think I’m aiming to draw penalties and that’s not what I said,” he explained. “I was asked about the hits on the sideline and the guys not being afraid to take the 15 yards for unnecessary roughness.
“I told them that against the Cowboys, I was just trying to run out of bounds and some guy hit me. Some guys will take that, some guys don’t really care. It’s just up in the air.
“Some guys will take the penalty and some won’t take the penalty. You’ve got to use the sideline as your friend. I’m not using the sideline to try and get penalties.”
