RG3 Wants Bryce Harper to Teach Him How to Slide
It isn’t that difficult Robert, you don’t have to be Vince Coleman out there.
Feet first and get on the ground, but RG3 of course was a little over the top with his comments when asked about sliding.
“I mean, if Bryce [Harper] wants to do that I’m definitely up for that,” Griffin said. “Bryce, we can do that if you want to, buddy.”
“The problem is I’m not a great slider, should I say. I know how to slide, but I don’t know how to baseball slide, and I think that’s what they’re talking about,” he said. “But there is just more of an emphasis on sliding feet-first as opposed to going forward since that rule is in place. It protects you as a quarterback going backwards, going feet-first, so that’s what you’ve got to do, so just make a mental note of that and try to slide feet-first.”
“You basically run up to a defender and you slide,” he said to laughter Wednesday. “It’s easier to slide with football pants on. The slickness of the pants, I know I’m going a little too deep here, but the slickness of the pants helps you slide. When you have shorts on and stuff like that, it’s a little less conducive to sliding on the practice field, but I have.”
Robert it isn’t that serious, just get on the ground, don’t make it into rocket science.
