The New Era in DC Has Begun! RGIII!!!

Posted: September 10, 2012 in Football

I had my doubts initially…not that RGIII would succeed eventually but that he would have such a strong start. His preseason was a little lackluster. Shanahan did not want to show his whole hand and he wanted to build the experience for Robert. With five rookie starters going into the first official week of the season, many believed that RGIII had the toughest situation to face with Brees and his offense attack with the physical Saints defense.

What was the result? RGIII finished with 19/26 for 320 yards and 2 touchdowns. His first pass went for 0 yards, but he followed it up with a strong series of passes to get the Redskins up by 3. Even though Brees was able to answer, he took one play to send an 88-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon. The defense stepped it up, giving him a chance to get back out there and throw his second touchdown pass. Even though the special teams let the Saints get the score closer at the half, the consistency of the Redskins offense followed a pattern to put up 10 points in each quarter. This was just enough to finish off the Saints, with the defense also stepping up to pick off Brees twice.

I am now a believer of this dynamic, intelligent Baylor graduate. The DC region is energized with the potential RGII brings to the table. Definitely excited to see where this team will go this year.
