Robert Griffin III is extremely talented and has a very bright future. However, it isn't easy for rookie quarterbacks to transition into the NFL.
Starting the first game of your NFL career can be a very stressful situation. Griffin III's emotions, lack of experience and the New Orleans Saints defense all increase the likelihood for a turnover-filled debut.
Despite all the time spent in training camp, Griffin III doesn't have a ton of experience running Mike Shanahan's offense. He's going to need time to feel comfortable with the playbook.
Even more important, he needs time to develop a relationship with his receivers. Miscommunication and making the wrong read are all things that lead to interceptions.
The Saints defense features a handful of players who excel at creating turnovers. Defensive backs like Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper do a good job reading the quarterback's eyes. They also play an aggressive style of defense, which means they aren't afraid to take a risk in order to pull down the interception.
If Griffin III throws two interceptions in his first game, it doesn't mean that trend will continue. He's a player who will get better as each week progresses.
