The read option might go, but the offense Cousins ran in the Cleveland game is how the Skins offense looks with a QB that doesn't possess the prowess that Griffin does. So design runs might disappear, but Griffin using his speed to bootleg out will be apart of any offense Griffin runs so long as a Shanahan is calling the plays. And Griffin will be just as affective running that type of Shanahan offense as he did this past year out of the pistol whip offense.
Griffin will lose some of his athletic ability after this surgery, but Griffin was so much more faster than most of the defenders he faced this year he will still be a damn fast QB in the open field.
Also just ran into this:
Dr. Adickes (yes the former Redskin) - RG3's former Surgeon says 6-8 months & He expects him back for Regular season opener.
