We're learning something about the competitive nature of NFL newcomer Robert Griffin III.
Shanahan said he won't tone down the offense to coddle Griffin. The young quarterback has talked about altering his style of play to prevent injuries, but Griffin is naturally fearless. He's a runner, a passer and an innovator with the ball, and he has shown tremendous capacity to operate a pro offense this early in his career.
"If I went into a game thinking I had to call it a different way because he might get hurt, then he doesn't need to be playing," Shanahan told The Post.
