Pierre Garcon left Indianapolis after his best season with the Colts.
2011 was a difficult year for the Colts as they struggled without longtime starting quarterback, Peyton Manning. That left Garcon to show his worth. The wide receiver played in 16 games, recorded 947 total yards and six touchdowns. Garcon has many more seasons left in him.
He’s just breaking in his game, and 2012 with the Redskins will definitely prove to be his breakout year—especially because while the Colts will be rebuilding this year, the Redskins will be growing.
The team has consistently struggled the past few seasons, but they’ve been molding younger players and boosted their offense by picking up the No. 2 draft pick, Robert Griffin III.
So far, Garcon’s track record looks good, and he’s already caused quite the stir in Washington.
“Evidence of a budding connection was clear in Washington’s 7-6 victory. Griffin completed three passes to Garcon on an eight-play, 80-yard touchdown drive,” (via Rich Campbell from The Washington Times).
The Redskins are counting on Pierre Garcon to deliver. While he was playing in Indianapolis, Garcon was competing with Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark on the receiving end (via Mark Maske from The Washington Post).
All Garcon needs is a little spotlight, and he’ll get it in Washington. Garcon will have a breakout year because he can. He’s in a new city, with a new team and a fresh new season.
Garcon has something to prove in Washington and he’ll make sure that he doesn’t disappoint.
