Redskins-Bills: Robert Griffin III is happy with his first start

Comcast SportsNet’s Antwaan Randle-El (yes, that Antwaan Randle-El) interviewed Robert Griffin III on the sideline after the quarterback’s successful first-quarter stint against the Bills Thursday night.

Here’s what the Redskins’starter had to say:

“Felt really good,” he said when asked about his first game. “You know, we went out there, we went three-and-out on the first drive but came back with a good completion on the next drive and a really good drive on our third drive, so to put points on the board was great. Makes me feel good and it keeps the team confident.

Randle-El asked about Griffin’s connection with new Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon: “You know, me and Pierre are definitely gonna grow together. He’s still a young player, trying to help the Redskins win just like I am. He’ll definitely be a big part of our success. So me and him will continue to hook up.”

His outlook for the season? “I felt like I played extremely well in the limited time that I had, got in a good rhythm there, the offensive line protected me, didn’t even get any pass rush from that front four, front five that the Bills have. I think we’re going to do extremely well. I never put a limit on anything. So whatever we decide to do and go out and execute and be about, that’s what we’re gonna do.”
