That seems like good company to be in, IMO.

In the past two games RGIII has only nine incomplete passes but eight TDs.

Reminiscent of his Senior year isn't it?!


:twisted:

As a pro! Awesome!

HAIL yeeeeah! Qb rating was legit this week too. Might finish the season as the best for a room I'm thinking.

He keeps this up and he's NFL rookie of the year ... AND NFL MVP - no doubt :D


cannot wait to see this franchise playing next season with all the pieces in place


THIS kid is incredibly special - maybe the guys that wondered if we gave up too much can now admit how far off the mark they were

The FO made one of the best trades in NFL history

AND

the trade with the Rams was ALSO a great value for their franchise as well - that's a great thing
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

HAIL


Currently 50-41

Not according to some Rams fans. I've noted a couple of them that are kicking themselves because their team didn't draft RG3 and getting rid of Bradford. :lol:

And of course, most of them are rooting for our guys to lose so they can have a higher draft pick.

More randomness

Tony Romo has been in the league for seven years and yesterday, on his 163rd touchdown pass he completed his longest of 85-yards

RGIII's 1st touchdown pass was 88-yards

Is it bad that I was annoyed the Garçon's TD was 59-yards instead of 60?

RGIII is the only rookie to have completed four 60+ yard touchdown passes and rushed for one 60+ yard TD. one more yard would have made that five.

Of RGIII's 16 TD passes this season ten of them have been from outside the Redzone

Getting all the pieces might be a tall order for next year. I agree though that we can fill some more holes. I am thinking 3 more years if we can keep from losing key players from injury. I am loving this win though. This made my year :)

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had another impressive outing Thursday, and continues to rewrite the record books.
With his 20-for-28, 311-yard, four-touchdown performance in the 38-31 victory over Dallas, Griffin broke Washington’s single-season team records for passing yards by a rookie and passing touchdowns by a rookie.

Until Thursday, Norm Snead held the single-season yards record (2,337 in 1961) and Eddie LeBaron the touchdown passing mark (14 in 1952).
For the season, Griffin III is now 206 for 305 (67.5 percent) for 2,504 yards with 16 touchdowns.

Griffin became the first player in Redskins history to pass for four touchdowns in consecutive games. He is only the second NFL player this season with four touchdown passes in consecutive weeks.

Griffin also is the first player in NFL history to have four 60-yard passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown of at least 60 yards (76 yard touchdown run vs. Minnesota) in a season.

Griffin is the first rookie since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger to have multiple games with four or more passing touchdowns in a season.

Griffin’s four passing touchdowns in a Thanksgiving game are also the most by a Redskins quarterback, surpassing the three Thanksgiving touchdowns thrown by Jim Ninowski on Nov. 28, 1968 and Danny Wuerffel on Nov. 28, 2002.

Griffin’s 311 yards are also the most by a Redskins quarterback on Thanksgiving, surpassing Ninowski’s 280.

With five games remaining, Griffin is on pace to throw for 3,642 yards with 23 touchdowns and just six interceptions, and 934 rushing yards.

Best Redskin rookie QB since Slingin' Sammy. Thinking about it...maybe they should let RG3 try punting...a quick kick off the shotgun? And the team is hurting at safety...maybe add RG3 to the DBs the next time the Skins go into the "prevent" defense? Yes: I'd like to see an INT with one of his 4-TD games.

No doubt he could do these well. Not sure about place kicks but punt return when we need it would be scary too.
