Garcon And Teammates Giving “110 Percent” For Successful Season

In 2008, wide receiver Pierre Garcon was the youngest member of an Indianapolis Colts receiving corps that featured Pro Bowlers at every slot. And while he only hauled in only four catches that season, his understudy role with some many talented weapons to learn from led him to increased numbers year after year.

By 2013, his second with the Washington Redskins, Garcon broke the franchise’s single-season receptions record with 113 catches and recorded 1,000 yards for the first time in his career.

Now, as the team embarks on its newest journey under first-year head coach Jay Gruden and with several new weapons in-hand, Garcon told ESPN980 that everyone is giving “110 percent” to get the franchise back to the playoffs.

“Every time I step out of on the field, I feel confident in my teammates,” Garcon said. “Whoever is out there, I know I will give 110 percent and they will do the same thing. We will keep playing hard and giving our all.”

Garcon is one of five returning receivers on the roster (Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson, Aldrick Robinson, Nick Williams), and while the group has shown major ability to change games, the additions of DeSean Jackson, Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant will only augment their playmaking abilities.

Together, they’re hoping to add enough to the offense as a whole to get the burgundy and gold back in the Super Bowl.

“We have a lot of weapons, and we are going to try to play for the Super Bowl,” Garcon said. “That’s the goal every season. Every game we play to win. We have a ton of weapons, but we’ve got to show up on Sundays and on practice weeks and make plays.”
