Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III took a lot of hits against the Minnesota Vikings and he said he can’t take those hits on a regular basis. He hinted that he might try sliding and he needs to make sure it won’t happen again.

“Bottom line, I can’t take those amount of hits,” Griffin said, via John Keim of “You don’t want to be hit that much. A lot of great quarterbacks don’t get hit that much. It’s not just me, it’s a lot of things that go into that. We just have to get better.”

“If I’m put in that situation again, then yeah maybe I will slide,” Griffin said about a particular instance. “I think if I hadn’t slipped, I probably would have gotten in. Once I did slip it was probably best to get down and avoid that hit.”

“I have to do a better job of that, making sure it doesn’t happen and taking it upon myself to get down earlier,” he said. “I got two good shots in the game I could have avoided … The other hits I did avoid. I’m OK at doing that, getting down and getting out of the way. [But] I’ve got to do a better job of that. It will come. And then we just have to protect.”

So far it isn’t working for him. He has been hit late, nothing he could really do about that. Then later in the game he was sacked. The defender had his legs and Griffin was spinning trying to get free and then it looks like he almost voluntarily went down. Probably a smart decision to not risk getting injured.
