To say that Robert Griffin III was anything short of amazing in his NFL debut would be an understatement. Both he and Andrew Luck threw for over 300 yards but RG3 did it with a NFL leading 139.9 quarterback rating in a stunning win over the heavily favored New Orleans Saints. There is no way of predicting how RG3 will perform once teams begin to dissect film of the Redskins offense but one thing is for sure, people on the internet love RG3 and yesterday was a great day for football.
“I’ve won a high school state championship and a bowl game in college, but to play in the NFL, the pinnacle of it all, and win your first game against a Hall of Famer in Drew Brees, it’s at the top,” Griffin said. “After the game, (Brees) told me he was proud of me. That’s big for him to say after he just lost the game.” - Robert Griffin III
