This may be the first time that we've seen three guys like this in one season, throw Andre Luck in there & I can see why people are thinking the NFL is changing. But RG3s knee is the reason I know it won't. Michael Vick playing a handful of 16 game seasons... I know it won't change.
He's a QB until he tucks the ball & run. He's fair game, until he initiates a slide. But even then, you can put a hurt'n on a QB (remember Cushing against the Browns a while back) & get a 15 yard penalty (we didn't get a penalty) but lose your QB for that game (I don't think they lost their QB but he wasn't 100%).
Kaepernick is cheap right now, so winning is probably more important than protecting their QB. Wilson is cheap, so winning is probably more important than protecting their QB.
RG3..... you can bet your ass they're going to start the season with a lot of talk about protecting their QB.
I know you are saying you haven't seen them enough but I disagree with the assessment that much of it is to wide open guys, etc. These weren't simplified offenses they ran. It is one reason I think Kaepernick was such a stud. Every game I watched he was fitting the ball in tight spaces. To your TV it might look easy but there were plenty of throws to the outside and down the hash that were in the only place they could be....especially ones to Vernon Davis. I saw the same from RG3.
