Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon says quarterback Robert Griffin III is “a lot different” this year.
It’s a giddy time. The Eagles have won one game, a surprising victory, to open their season and to hear some of the talk swirling around Philadelphia and on its airwaves, the Eagles may never lose another game again.
The first quarter of the Eagles 33-27 win over Washington was both the fastest and slowest thing you’ve ever seen.
The first quarter of Monday night’s Eagles game was a whole lot of Eagles offense, and not that much Eagles defense. That’s a compliment to both units, as the offense was operating at a high efficiency, and the defense was able to get the ball back rather quickly with a turnover and a safety.

The questions about Michael Vick going into the 2013 season sound similar to the questions about Vick going into the 2012 season. Can Michael Vick stay healthy? Can Michael Vick find a way to prevent turnovers? Both answers have a lot to do with a third question: how much will Michael Vick run the ball in Chip Kelly’s offense?

Donovan McNabb says he offered his support and advice to Robert Griffin III. Griffin said “thanks but no thanks.” McNabb wasn’t too happy with that response.
