All Skill, No Luck: RGIII Outplays The No. 1 Pick

RGIII and Andrew Luck made their regular season NFL debuts on Sunday. One was outstanding, the other looked like a rookie.


Pierre Garcon Injury: X-Rays Negative On Foot

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon injured his foot in the team's 40-32 season-opening victory against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, but head coach Mike Shanahan said after the game that X-rays were negative.

The fifth-year player out of Mount Union experienced some soreness, so the Redskins were cautious with him.

Garcon is expected to be a key component to what the Redskins do this season, with rookie Robert Griffin III at quarterback needing weapons to throw it to. RGIII's first career touchdown came by way of an 88-yard score from Griffin to Garcon.

Nick Sundberg Is Tough

You think being a long-snapper is easy. All they've gotta do is snap the ball once in a while and make a block. Can't be that hard, right. It can't take a ton of toughness or anything.

Redskins' long-snapper Nick Sundberg is one tough SOB.

This is your reminder that football is insane, and so are the players.


Robert Griffin III: Perfection Personified

This has to end soon, right? Currently RGIII is 10-for-11, 155 yards, and just threw his second touchdown of the day on a five yard pass to Aldrick Robinson.


Last year Cam Newton threw for over 400 yards in his career opener, and now Griffin III is giving that debut a run for its money.
