What a debut!

As a Washington Redskins fan, it's always a good idea to restrain your enthusiasm after Week 1 of the NFL season.  Last season started out 3-1 on route to a 5-11 finish, lest we forget.

That's not to say that fans shouldn't be happy with the results, or that they should not be feeling a tad bit more secure in their hopes and dreams for their team.  Robert Griffin III led the Washington Redskins to a resounding victory in a game that was not even as close as the score may suggest, and they did it on the road to the New Orleans Saints .

That's impressive by any standard.

Washington hasn't seen points scored like this in a very, very long time, and both the team and the coaches deserve the kudos they are receiving this week.
