SI.com’s Peter King gives RGIII an “A-” for last night’s perfomance


Here’s an excerpt from the entire article that you can read here.

The stats were good (4-of-6, 70 yards, one touchdown, no interceptions, a 145.3 rating), but the other facets of his short night of work — the presence, the confidence running a new offense for the first time against a team trying to hit him, the touch on two arcing throws — were more impressive. Griffin didn’t play like a rookie. He played like a third-year player used to his offense and the play-calls.

Just as significantly, Griffin, the reigning Heisman winner from Baylor and second overall pick in April’s draft, looked as composed and sharp as he did against one of the league’s best defensive fronts. Maybe the best: Mario Williams making his Buffalo debut at left end, Kyle Williams and Marcel Dareus at tackle, and Chris Kelsay and ex-Patriot Mark Anderson at right end.

King continued with:

Again in the shotgun at the Bills’ 20, he threw a short screen to Garcon, and left tackle Trent Williams went out and made a terrific open-field block to spring Garcon. The former Colt sprinted to the end zone and somersaulted in. Griffin looked happy but not overly so. Like: I expected this.
Apparently, Mr. King believes that Robert Griffn III did a wonderful job.
