RGIII Makes Dazzling Debut – Will Redskins Pull Off Upset? (FINAL: ‘Skins 40-32)


Robert Griffin III didn’t wait long to justify the excitement of Washington Redskins fans, throwing an 88-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon in the first quarter, then watching it from the ground. The Redskins are leading 30-17 late in the 3rd quarter. Will they be able to hold on to upset the Saints?

  • …my two favorite teams, the Nats and the O’s, both got their butts kicked. Still, the Nats are in great shape to win their division, and the O’s are right in the hunt for a playoff spot, so not too shabby. Oh, and for the record, I strongly AGREE with the Nats’ decision to shut down Stephen Strasbourg, consistent with the (correct, disciplined, smart long-term thinking) way they treat players throughout their organization.

    Boy, what a good year for Washington teams so far! The Nats are such fun to watch, and who knows, they just could go all the way. (My husband is praying for a Nats-Yankees World Series that the Nats win in six. He’s a Philly boy who learned early to hate the pin-stripes.)

    While I’m not a fan of football, it’s about time that they had a good season. So…go Nats…go, Redskins…

    There is that, too, first time out in the major league…. nevertheless, RGIII had a great day, congratulations. But what about our defense? They allowed 32 points; they’ll have to do better than that from now on out, I suspect. The score almost looks like an old time basketball score, doesn’t it?
