    If he's going to do that little high-step move right before stepping out of bounds, then yeah, he's baiting them to draw a penalty.

    the Quarterback must go down, and he must go down hard

    hit the little SOB next time and earn the 15 yards

    Clay Mathews showed what happened when you try this schtick. Someone is going to stick you and happily accept the fine.

    That's what I'd do. Knock the puddy out of him anywhere near the sideline...give him the 15 but make him pay with his body. He won't last.

    Yup. What does he gain declaring that?

    It hardly sounds like a wise strategy for RG3 to bait defenders into hitting him late out of bounds, in light of his knee injury.

    I believe it was NOLA Def. coordinator Gregg Williams that said :
    ''Kill the Head and the Body will Die"
    That's over now

    "Kill the Knees and the body will Die" is the new way to go.

    As Jack Lambert said about QB's "Put a skirt on 'em"

    Hoping some will take offense and hit him anyway and get a penalty or put the seed in the back of there mind he is going to go out, let up and watch him run up the sideline. If I was a DC and I saw Washington on the schedule I would tell every guy that has him lined up for a hit on the sideline and its in the grey area, full speed ahead and deal with the penalty if it comes.

    Thankfully, he admitted doing it and now the referees know they have been used like a tool and feel like useful idiots. Good luck getting any close calls now.

    I believe there needs to be a rule change. Late hits out of bounds should be reviewable by instant replay. If any part of the opponent is in-bounds when the initial contact occurs should not be a foul as long as the player doesn't do something extra vicious after the initial contact way out of bounds. Thye QB should definitely be treated the same as a RB when he is running. No way any RB in the league gets those late hit calls like Griffin got last Sunday.

    The QB can easily slide and get full protection these days. He doesn't need to bait players into fouls and hoodwink the refs.

    I would prefer that my quarterback wasn't taking late hits out of bounds. Odd that he would trade that for yards. Regardless Church was an idiot for getting baited. You can make sure a qb is out of bounds without hitting him.

    I'm in full support of this. Annihilate that little tip-toeing son of a biscuit.

    Next time he tries to bait, don't let RGIII off the hook.

    I think it is total BS on the calls for roughing he got vs Dallas. heading out of bounds and being out of bounds is not the same thing. some of these QB especially RGIII are just as like to cut it back up field. If he wants to run like a RB then the league needs to treat him as such

    i used to think that RG3 was smart, but this just plain stupid. Why would you publicly broadcast this? Now refs will be less inclined to give him the benefit of the call because they'll think he's 'baiting' the defender half the time.

    RGIII as bait for a great white shark, now that's food for thought.
