I get that RG3 is helping the run game, however it is not because he is doing anything revolutionary. Defending the run is a pure numbers game.

On most "pro style" running plays the offense are trying to block 11 guys with 9. Obviously the RB doesn't block anyone and seldom does the QB do anything but handoff and get out of the way.

However what Griffin forces teams to do is use one of their defenders to play contain on him.

What the zone read play does is it forces the play side end to make a decision that quite frankly he seldom has to make since this offense is not frequently used in the NFL.

So what that one play has done is cut it down from trying to block 11 with 9 to trying to block 9 with 9, with say the back side end containing Griffin and watching for cut backs and the front side end being unblocked and manipulated by the pitch.

But as I was saying this isn't some crazy made up scheme from the Shanahan's. This has been around for years, however no teams were willing to put their QB through all the hits that he could take. But it is happening all over the NFL now.

Watch how the Patriots defended the 49ers run game a few weeks ago. Kaepernick was able to manipulate the fronts he seen by doing exactly the same thing that Griffin did.
