I hate RW getting lumped in this category with RGIII and Kaepernick. They didn't even notice RW never had a read option carry our playoff game vs ATL.
Actually, neither Wilson or Kaepernick run the option nearly as much as RGIII or Newton. According to Santo on ESPN, the percentage of read option plays was:
Newton: 14.9%; RGIII: 13%; Wilson: 5.6%; Kaepernick: 4.5%
Although as the season progressed, they had Wilson doing it more. In the last 10 games of the regular season, Wilson's read options plays increased to 11.8% and Kaepernick's to 5.7%. But the bottom line is that neither the Hawks or the 9ers use that play as much as RGIII and Newton.
