I guess I said it wrong, but in the long term Shanahan will use that option read less and less when defenses start to counter it and RG3 takes some serious blows.
Look at how Cam Newton has faired in year 2 of that type of offense.
What you just wrote is that Shanny has adjusted his offense to help out the rookie get his feet wet in the NFL by incorporating plays that RG3 is comfortable with and good at now. Once the defenses start to counter, Shanny will make adjustments and use the option read less and less.
What you described is called adjusting your offense to the personnel. Something that JG refuses to do.
