We aren't talking about rgknee here, cams going to run he's going to get tackled. But at 6'5 240 dbs arent going to lay the wood on you like someone 5'11 190. Cam could play te at his size. This is football he's going to get knicked up, but it's much less likely he gets hurt running the football in the open field verse getting rolled up on in the pocket. Why would you want to take away something he's so good at because he might get hurt. Just sit him on the bench then.
The hits will catch up to him eventually especially as he gets older and his athleticism diminishes.
The problem is it allows defenders to legally hit him.
Wear and tear is going to start setting in on cam soon if it already hasn't. This is his 4th season.

players are going to hit him regardless. I've seen him tuck and roll early enough (which is usual) that the defender just touches him on the back to end the play. Cam has actually been one of the best dual threat QBs to protect himself when he scrambles. Him being a tank also help. But he is in no way shape or form like RG3 in defending himself. It's night and day.
You open up a whole new set of problems with sliding, knee injuries, decapitations, ect.
The tuck n roll protects him more than a slide. It's just a timing thing and this was a freak accident.
