Robert Griffin III is having a pretty damn good week. He starts his first NFL game, wins his first NFL game, does it against a formidable Saints squad in their impenetrable fortress, and becomes the first rookie to take home Player of the Week honors in Week 1. Not a bad foray into the pro gridiron for the rookie. On top of that, he’s received high praise from everyone’s favorite football guru/turducken chef/video game franchise namesake, John Madden. And even better, it came at the expense of Tim Tebow!
