What the Washington Redskins have in Robert Griffin III isn't just a quarterback, it's a performer. No mere quarterback could walk into the crocodile-filled bayou known as the Superdome and, in his NFL debut, torch the New Orleans Saints for 320 passing yards, two touchdowns and a 139.9 rating in a 40-32 win. Only a performer — a player who relishes the spotlight, who lives for such moments — could have done that.

Pierre Garcon caught the high pass from Robert Griffin III and tried to turn on the afterburners.

Robert Griffin III and Pierre Garcon were done playing in last Thursday’s preseason game, but their work day was not finished. While their Washington Redskins teammates competed against the Buffalo Bills on the scoreboard and against each other for roster spots, Griffin and Garcon reviewed the 14 plays the first-string offense ran.
The left tackle that practiced with the Washington Redskins' first-string offense on Saturday afternoon was planning for his retirement two weeks ago. The left guard was a rookie. So was the right guard. And he practiced next to a right tackle who played with the second string all offseason.
