07:03 AM ET 09.10 | This time around, Robert Griffin III did his best to avoid a fine, though he remained somewhat critical. [Griffin] said he moved his knee brace beneath his uniform pants and his right sock during the course of the Washington Redskins' season opener Monday night after the team was instructed to do so by a league representative. "Everybody in the league kept calling down to our sideline saying I needed to cover the brace up," Griffin said. "I don't understand that one. But that's why we had to continue to do some stuff to cover the brace up with my sock. ... Griffin said the instruction came from "the league. The NFL." A Redskins spokesman clarified that meant the league's uniform inspector in the press box. "Man, I don't know what the league's doing," Griffin said. "I got fined 10 grand for a shirt."

You stunk it up......like most teams week 1, get over it

No pre-season work showed with him and Morris.

We'll be fine though.

Wait a minute.... So the brace isn't part of his uniform, he gets fined ?

One thing I'll say on The R... He's only around 80%. All of those incomplete passes & 2 INT's would have been complete a year ago. He can't step into his throws right now, but I think it's mostly mental.

Just a little rust

Thought I wouldn't get enough points to win the FF game. Barely edged you out in the 4th.

The funny thing is seeing all the Eagle fans come out of their hole claiming to be all that now. If Vick keeps getting hit like he did last night he won't make it to see a game 2 vs the skins!

Vick still can't pick up a blitz. Throw their timing off and mix in a little blitz and they struggle. After the halftime adjustments we did well. It was the element of the unknown that worked early.

The way they were playing, I was hoping :)

Morris ended up saving me in the second half before Shanny sat him down. He better be careful... Shanny will change RB's like most men change draws yo.

After he burns them out you mean?

He saved Morris all of pre-season. I think he may have ran the ball twice.

The league isn't stupid (for the most part) and when there is enough film on the Eagles, defenses will adjust and Vick will be his usual self..is he's able to limp back on the field that is.
