Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon says quarterback Robert Griffin III is ‘a lot different’ this year.
The Washington Redskins are facing nearly insurmountable odds of making the postseason, but aren’t willing to throw in the towel just three games into the season.
Pierre Garcon told 106.7 The Fan’s Holden and Danny that his intentions weren’t to diss RGIII by saying he wasn’t as fast as he was in 2012, and put to bed any rumors that the two would settle questions of who’s faster in a friendly race.
Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan left Monday’s game with concussion-like symptoms and did not return.
Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon has teamed up with Paisano’s Pizza to assist the family of 8-year-old cancer victim Tara Sanker. The ‘Let’s Take Care of Tara’ campaign runs throughout September, to which Garcon will donate $2,500 for each touchdown he scores against Philadelphia.
For the second time in a little more than a year, Holden Kushner suggested to Pierre Garcon that he’s not as fast as RGIII, only this time around, Garcon didn’t take it so well. At least, we think he didn’t.
While RGIII was able to change the fate of the Redskins last season, for the quarterback himself, the real difference-maker was wide receiver Pierre Garcon. The team was a stunning 9-2 with Garcon on the field, and they look to be heading back in that direction.
The Washington Redskins offense is poised for a ‘huge’ boost with a healthy Pierre Garçon. The team was 7-0 when he had as many 46 receiving yards, 3-6 when he didn’t.
Something that may have gone unnoticed about RGIII – against all odds – was his explanation of why he doesn’t frequent the bar/club scene of Washington, D.C., which submitted willingly to WPGC’s Sunni at Pierre Garcon’s charity event last week.
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says receiver Pierre Garcon and cornerback Josh Wilson are recovering from offseason surgeries.
