I don't think you can really decide the better rookie, RGIII or Newton, until the season's over. RGIII has gotten off to an impressive start though, and I hope this carries over into the game against the Rams.

Re: Kudos to RG III

RG3 was born for this. To have such poise at such a young age is impressive beyond belief. Besides his natural talent he also possesses the desire to work hard and improve. This young man is a rare find and we're very fortunate to have him. The rest of the NFC East needs to be on notice. In fact...the whole NFL. The Redskins are competitive again baby. And we're just getting started.

Yet they still scored points. I have no doubt they will be chomping at the bit to get things fixed. I do think we missed Payton obviously, the guy is one of the best coaches in the league....I think we fooled ourselves into thinking we wont face some adversity. But I think we have the people in place to work through this. Accountability is the biggest thing we are missing right now. Payton was the head honcho in the building, he could have any player cut, he has Loomis and Benson's ear at all time. That leadership vaccum is there now...who is in charge? This is something that will HAVE to be worked out internally. The buck needs to stop with someone. But lets face it, turn about 5 of those drops and fumbles into catches and its a different game.
lay more as a TEAM again.
A lot of people aren't giving the Skins enough credit in this regard. Coverage was generally outstanding and we got a great push up the middle. I know blocking was mentioned, but overall it was more of a great effort on the Skins part than a let-down by the Saints.

Re: Kudos to RG III

After the game, even Brees said that he was proud of Griffin. That goes to show you that the compliments he had for RGIII before the game was pretty much sincere. Forget everybody else - That's respect from one of the best qbs in the game right now - who was on the other side of the field- observing all of it firsthand.

Re: Kudos to RG III

Game 1. Nothing but excitement about the future right now! O-Line wasn't stellar but wasnt' crappy either. Against a tougher D, RGIII will have to do more on his own, but right now, how can you not like what you see? He was cool in the pocket, created confusion for the D when the play broke down - is running? passing? Several times watched LB's and secondary hesitate b/c they just didn't know what he was going to do which in turn opened up things like the pass to Davis or the nice one over the blitz to Robinson.

As so many have said, it was probably the most entertaining game in recent history. RGIII is the real deal.

Yes, 2 points:

1) The Skins went very conservative in the second half. They could have scored 50 and RGIII could have thrown for 400 and/or at least rushed for more yards. The Cards were way less of an Offensive threat, so the Panthers could afford to take more chances and keep their foot on the pedal.

2) The Skins lost Garcon pretty early. Imagine if Cam lost Steve Smith for most of his first game. No way he still passes for 400 yards.

Re: Kudos to RG III

I know the game announcers were all over this, but man RG3's fakes are something else. More than a few times I had no idea who had the ball. I can only imagine what that's like for the defense.

It seems to be a lost art. RG3 makes the defense look like the Keystone Kops at times.

Re: Kudos to RG III

This was one of those dream scenarios for RG3's first start. Stayed poised and didnt try to do it all by himself. Showed that he has not only a strong arm, but can make accurate passes. He made the right calls when it came to staying in the pocket or running. And even on scrambles, had the sense about him to pull up and pass even though some yards were there for him to get running. I also like the fact that he is fast enough to get out of the pocket and put some space between him and the defenders to allow him to do that in the first place. Not sure we have seen that since... Gannon?

While I have never been a fan of Kyle, I have to give him props as well. Quick wide receiver screens slowed down the Saints D in the first drive. He called plays that let RG3 do things that forced their D to respect what he could do. It slowed down their pass rush a good amount, even though they were getting there late and got some hits on RG3. He also never abandoned the rushing game, which he did pretty much every game last year. The Oline played pretty good, but I believe part of that was the scheme. If the Saints D could have concentrated on a Rex/Beck/McNabb offense, they would of had 5 or more sacks imo.

Now we need RGjr (and his significant other) to keep RG3's head from getting big. Really like that disciplined military parents has his ear.

And that's going to go a long ways! RGIII carries out his fakes all the way, and I'm like you, I wasn't sure who had the ball a few times.

Grossman's probably in awe like the rest of us.
