Week 2 Redskins Power Rankings

RG3's rookie debut, in the Superdome, couldn't have gone better.


In my 40 years in the NFL, I have never seen a rookie debut performance like RG3 put up on Sunday. Yes, that includes the 422-yard performance of Cam Newton a year ago. RG3 outplayed Drew Brees in his own house and that can't be said enough.


16 19 This is what every fan base dreams of. You draft a rookie and immediately see the pay off. RGIII was accurate, efficient and, most importantly, his team put up a lot of points on the board. I can't tell you how jealous of Redskins fans I am right now.


26 Lost in all the RG3 hype from beating the Saints is how well the defense played. That front seven is nasty.


15 24 Washington takes a huge leap in rankings based off finally finding a playmaker at quarterback. Not to mention, beating a top-10 team on the road. For all the superlatives regarding Robert Griffin III's day in the Superdome, it sure is hard to ignore rookie Alfred Morris' effort. Are the running back-by-committee days over in Washington? Doubtful. Very doubtful.

21 After a big win in the Big Easy lets hope that the Redskins buck the trend of playing to the level of their opponent that we've seen for so long. How hyped would FedEx be for the home opener with a 2-0 team coming home?
