I think it will continue to be a part of the game. The thing about his runs, is that they are all options, so he generally only runs when he sees an opening. These are less risky than designed running plays and will probably be a staple of the game. I do think an interesting fact about RW that a lot of people don't know or don't pay attention to, is that his QBR is higher from inside the pocket than from outside, so I'm also not worried about his ability to make plays from their either.

I think having a qb who runs around more like RW does, one should always be concerned about the possibility of an injury. This is why I think we must keep a good backup qb. I'm not a fan of trading Flynn for just this reason. Of course maybe Pete and John could find a good replacement, but I like the setup we have now and since we can't pay Wilson anymore until after his third year, Flynn's money doesn't hurt our cap value at all.

I've said this before in other threads and in actual conversations I've had about Wilson, but I think it's what he's got in football smarts that helps him in this regard. he seems to know how to evade and get down or get out of bounds instead of taking big hits.
