RG3 Report: Redskins 31, Eagles 6 | WashingtonExaminer.com
If I’m with the Eagles, I have one thought after a game like this: "Oh, no; it’s not going to be fun facing this kid for the next decade or so." Actually, one word would probably do but I don’t think I could get away with printing it. Robert Griffin III consistently made big plays at times when it appeared he was hemmed in or finished. He hurt the Eagles with his arm and his legs. The Giants had to be feeling the same way last month. In two NFC East games, Griffin is a combined 34 for 43 for 458 yards, six touchdowns and one interception. He’s also rushed for 173 yards.

"Except for that one incompletion, I thought he did OK [joking]," Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan said on Griffin III’s day. "He played hard. It wasn’t easy by any means.

Need to Know: NFL won't recognize RG3's perfect rating - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
Robert Griffin III became the only rookie ever to get a perfect quarterback rating in a game with at least 15 attempts and the first rookie to complete over 90 percent of his passes in a game, with the same minimum attempts. The NFL, however, will not recognize those accomplishments in its record book. That is because they have a minimum of 20 attempts for passer marks such as completion percentage or rating to count.
One key to success: Hope your competition is as bad as the Eagles - The Washington Post
After serving as Philly’s victim for so long, the Redskins have reversed this rivalry’s roles. Fans in green jerseys, many with names from the Eagles’ past, such as "Dawkins" or "Westbrook," or players soon to be in the rearview mirror, such as "Vick," began heading to the exits with the entire fourth quarter still to play. No doubt, they said, "Going to get another beer." Leave them their pride. But that Week 16 trip to Philly now says: "Opportunity." Picking a date for Reid’s departure after this sixth straight loss is mostly a formality. "I don’t know if things can get much worse," Eagles tight end Brent Celek said. "It makes me sick."

"I knew I was getting the ball," Robinson said. "He put it in a spot where I had to chase it, so I didn’t have to think about it that much." What Robinson had to do to for his only catch in the Redskins‘ 31-6 drubbing of the Philadelphia Eagles was exploit a breakdown in coverage. Griffin did most of the work by making Eagles safety Nate Allen leave his deep responsibility to cover tight end Niles Paul.
