Pierre Garçon On Robert Griffin III and What Makes Peyton Manning Great

Pierre Garçon was in Los Angeles last week to give NFL Network an instant reaction to the Jay Gruden hire.

But that’s not all Garçon discussed.

The day before Washington announced Gruden as the new head coach, Detroit Lions receiver Nate Burleson asked Garçon  about the differences between Peyton Manning and Robert Griffin III.

“Peyton, I caught him on the end of his career, so he was more accurate. We had to be where he wanted us to be at the time… he told us to be. Robert, he has a more lively arm, so he’s going to continue to make plays go on as things break down, so it’s different. Robert throws it harder just because he’s younger and has a fresh arm.”

A couple days later, Garçon fielded questions from Paul Burmeister about the 2013 season, Griffin III and Manning, who will lead the Broncos in the AFC Championship on Sunday in Denver.

“When you’re playing with injury, everything slows down, or everything physically slows up, because your body is not where it used to be. But this year (Griffin III is) gonna be back because he’s already had this injury before and he’s healed back in college. Now this is his third year, so he’ll definitely be back to his rookie type (form).”

 

Burmeister asked Garçon what Griffin III, or any young quarterback, could learn from Manning. The receiver pointed to Manning’s VCR.

“I’ve seen Peyton watch so many tapes. He watched tapes of one-on-ones. He watched tapes of offensive lines. He watched tapes of defense. He watched all of our practice He was taking home his own set of tapes to watch that we could talk about in the morning before practice, before the team watches the tape. He was definitely on his film studies. “
