RGIII Outstanding, Peyton is Back, Luck Not So Much

Robert Griffin III looked like he has been there for years. Andrew Luck played like a rookie, Peyton Manning showed Pittsburgh Steelers and the NFL is he is back. Three quarterbacks made some noise and the fans should expect that pattern to continue as the season goes.

NFC East may just have a problem on their hands trying to defend RGIII and the Redskins passing game. He made the organization look like geniuses as he had better first NFL game than Luck. Yes it is only game one but what a game one for the rookie. Griffin helped Washington to 40 points and first victory of the season over a New Orleans Saints team that was supposed to give them no chance. Griffin III passed for 320 yards and two touchdowns and had no interceptions. You could not ask for better performance considering what other rookies did around the league. RGIII will forever be compared to Luck but their first day on the job was really no comparison.
