Pierre Garçon knows what it's like to catch passes from one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.

For two of his three seasons in Indianapolis, he accomplished that with the Colts. But when rumors spread during free agency that he might continue to "ride the coattails" of Peyton Manning, Garçon silenced them by signing with Washington.

Beginning in September, Garçon will focus on leading a football franchise back to glory. He is up for the challenge, but it pales in comparison to growing up fatherless or leading a proud nation back from ruin.  

The following seven slides provide an introduction to Pierre the player and Pierre the man. They also describe where he's been, what he's dealt with and what he'd like to accomplish with the Redskins.
