Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

I think clausen will not help the redskins. He's a bust in the making. We should see if we can get tebow in the 2nd round or lefevour later. Great upside on those two at a lower price. Both of those guys can beat you with their wheels and arms. We must get a top OLT with the 4th pick...period.

Thank you. Welcome to the Warpath.

Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

I wouldn't trade up for Clausen at all, nothing about him excites me. If he falls to us in the 2nd round and we take him, I don't think I'd be thrilled but I wouldn't hate it.

But if we actually used two picks to get him via trade, I'd be pretty upset.

When he bends over and kisses his own ass.
I see, so flexibility is real important to you when looking for a QB.

Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

I'm not sure there's anyone in this draft I would trade up for (though I would consider selling my soul for CJ Spiller, just saying). I would rather trade down and accumulate more picks.

Campbell, or A. Davis. BUT, we can't miss on Clausen, he is the best prospect at QB in a while, we will be set if we get him.
Who are you calling idiots?

Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

I've never gotten the hatred for McCoy. He's a four year starter with big game experience and several signature clutch performances. There are legitimate questions about his arm strength, but it's not as if the big three qb's in the league - Manning, Brees, and Brady - didn't face similar questions when drafted. Doesn't mean McCoy will be a good player, but for a second round pick I think whichever team takes him will be getting good value and a potentially very good player.

Clausen on the other hand just gives me the willies. He sends my douchebag meter to redalert.

Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

I am firmly in the Clausen's a huge bust waiting to happen group. Just a gut feeling, but something about that kid just screams douchebag to me. So to answer the question, i wouldn't trade up at all to pick him. I'll be pissed if we take him in the draft.

That combined with large amount of bust QB's taken high in the draft year after year.
Plus throw in the high failure rate of weak teams that drafted QB's high before building their O-line (Lions, Bengals, Browns) doing it over and over again. I do not want my Redskins to included with those teams anymore.
It is already embarrassing enough seeing the Redskins are already included with them as the worst teams in the NFL this decade 2000-2009. During that time (2000-2009) we have already spent two first round picks on QB's Patrick Ramsey (2002) and Jason Campbell (2005). Not to mention the ton of WR's and skill position busts.
It is funny during the time Vinny was being shown the door there was a relative consensus that we needed to build our lines after years of ignoring them in favor of skill position players. I realize we live in an QB drive league since the rules were changed to increase passing. So that is why so many have their Panties in a bunch to get a QB right away. Resist the temptation.
We have a ton of holes to fill. We can get a proven NFL QB in future FA markets or a trade.
OK, I am off my soap box.
Ultimately, I'm on the side of your soapbox rant. This question is more to address the question of "what is Jimmy Clausen's true value" than to cheer-lead his arrival.

No way do you trade up for Clausen.

trade value? Oh, ok...then yes Jimmy Clausen is a douchebag.
Kidding. I have no idea if 'Jimmy' is any good with vaginal hygiene.
But due to the current condition of the Redskins roster and the horrid talent level we have at OL, and given that this draft is strong in OL and RB, and the best OLT might land in our lap, I would not trade up or down for Jimmy Clausen.

I would go McCoy Tebow Clausen. I dont understand why you would take a proven loser over proven winners. But I dont know that much about him Just that he has questions about his real charactor.

I tried to get the stats straight so they wouldnt look so crowed but it didnt work.

You are a complete idiot, thank God you aren't making any decisions for the Skins! Although I would love it if you got a job in the Cowboys front office.

Uncalled for. Too many people here calling others idiots for no reason.

This pretty much sums up my feelings as well, but I think I'd still be initially P.O.'d.

Man, I wish I had read your post before Schneed's, this is EXACTLY how I feel.
