Redskins | Robert Griffin to run more?

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said he had the bye week to help him realize he has to use the talents given to him in order to be successful, hinting that he plans on running more often. In the team's Week 6 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, he ran nine times on zone read options and scrambles for 77 yards. The nine rushes was a third of his total carries all year. "Everyone wants me to slide and get out of bounds," he said. "I can't listen to that. It's not that you ignore it. I understand that people are concerned, but at the end of the day you have to go out and play with your instincts. I let my instincts take over as opposed to running out of bounds so everyone doesn't get mad at coach or mad at me. Just more instinctive running the ball and playing football."
