METAIRIE — With no real game film to go on, the New Orleans Saints could have been limited in their approach to how they’ll defend Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III in their regular-season opener Sunday.

But Saints interim coach Aaron Kromer said that’s not the case with Griffin, the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner who will make his NFL debut against the Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

“You can go by what you have seen in college and what you have seen in the preseason,” Kromer said of Griffin, who was coveted as a dual pass-run threat when the Redskins made him the second pick of the draft this spring.

“Anytime there’s a new quarterback or a new player, a team wants to play him as much as they can in the preseason to get them used to playing at the NFL speed, and that’s what they have done. He’s gotten plenty of reps, so there is plenty to look at.”

As such, Kromer knows why the Redskins made a trade to jump up in the draft to land the former Baylor star.

“He took Baylor and made them into a powerhouse, which they hadn’t been in a long time,” he said. “When one guy can really change a program, and he has shown he can do it in college, there’s a good chance he can do it in the NFL.”

Maybe we don't prepare or adjust to take advantage of when a rookie breaks down.

Maybe because G.W. took them too lightly, thinking all his "exotic" blitzes would get to the QB or make them unconfortable.

I'm fully confident that Spags will keep the defense in position to confuse and contain RGIII. Now whether the defense responds accordingly is debateable... I'm expecting great things from Lofton, Hawthorne, and I hope Ruud sees the field some. I'd rather Ruud start instead of Shanle if at all possible

Re: New Orleans Saints have seen plenty on Robert Griffin III

Which rookie QBs exactly have we played terrible against?

And you say "played terrible", was it our defense that played terrible or our offense that had a flat day?

Our offense does not play terrible.. period.

Agreed, we went 5-0 against rookie QB's last year, and none looked great against us. Newton looked good in the 1st game, not so much in the 2nd.
