Today on NewsTalk, Robert Griffin III makes his NFL debut with the Redskins. Tom Threlkeld of DC Pro Sports Report gave his analysis of Thursday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Emma Brown of the Washington Post discussed DC School's Chancellor Kaya Henderson's changes to the "Impact" system. That's the system that grades teacher's performance in the classroom.

And, Elissa Silverman talked about the fight to prevent corporations from providing donations to political candidates in DC. Organizers of Initiative 70 hit a snag this week when the DC Board of Elections ruled they hadn't collected enough signatures.
