Robbie had to show a little patience and struck in his fifth game for the club. It was worth the wait and his blistering strike was a signal of future intent.
"It was a great goal - what a way to start and get his first goal for Tottenham," said the skipper afterwards. "He's very a very good player, but we're only as good as the players behind us and they're all performing at a good level.
"It was nice to see Jamie and Steffen in there sewing up the midfield."
While purring over Robbie's precise execution, Teddy added a slight dash of sarcasm when it came to describing Jamie Redknapp's final minute winner.
"It was a great strike, wasn't it? I don't know if he's claiming that..."
Overall, Teddy was happy that the team achieved full reward for what is, for all teams, a particularly tricky assignment at Ewood Park.
"It was very difficult. I said in an interview earlier in the season that Blackburn and Middlesbrough would be tough to beat.
"I think they missed Yorkie out there, when him and Coley are together they are a formidable partnership that are always going to score goals.
"We looked very solid today and it is credit to our back four that they didn't have many chances. There was a couple of disallowed goals and that was okay from our point of view, but we had chance after chance.
"We really should have wrapped the game up before half-time, but we didn't. We looked solid with our passing and I think we all played our part in a great victory."
