Redskins Vs. Saints 2012: Robert Griffin III Shocks World, Not Redskins Fans

Optimism is running high among Washington Redskins fans after Robert Griffin III engineered a 40-32 win in his NFL debut Sunday, and for good reason: last year's Heisman winner threw for 320 yards and two touchdowns in an upset win over one of the NFC's perennial favorites in the New Orleans Saints.

However, Kevin Ewoldt of Redskins blog Hogs Haven just wants you to know that he called it:

The Saints were 7.5 point favorites. It's well known I'm a pessimist, deservingly so with how the Snyder era has gone, but we predicted this Redskins upset with 10 solid reasons why the Saints would struggle.

Particularly, Ewoldt thought there was no way the Saints had properly gameplanned for Griffin:

I thought it was comical to hear the Saints earlier this week say Chase Daniel was simulating RGIII in practice and they had no QB rushes in practice "because they never showed that in preseason." Sean Payton would not have fallen for that. So, now that the Redskins offense is on film, how will it go from here on out? I'm going to celebrate this win before I think about that. Redskins are 1-0, baby.
