Hey, other people already regard us as a sad excuse for a fanbase, the general perception seems to be that Skins fans in general are mostly retarded people still living off the team's 80's glory and thinking that our next free agent signing will put us over the top. Not saying the majority of people on here are, because they aren't, but I've met plenty of fellow Skins fans who just make me

Re: Anyone like Blaine Gabbert, he just declared for the draft

So some say we should not be Redskin fans because the Redskins have had a lot of losing seasons?
That would apply to a lot of other teams too.
Without fans, there is no NFL.
How "other fans" regard me really does not keep me up at night.
I'll bleed burgundy and gold till the day I day...damn the torpedoes..........

Re: Anyone like Blaine Gabbert, he just declared for the draft

Does anyone really want the Skins to go 1-15 in order to draft Andrew Luck? How miserable would that be? If that were to happen, Luck would be coming to a downtrodden team that has forgotten how to compete and win. Mike Shanahan would never let any team of his sink that low.

One of the most encouraging signs I saw in the Skins this past season was that they didn't quit. The Skins may have lost 10 games but they were in most of them to the end. They were just outmanned. That type of competitive spirit needs to be cultivated, not destroyed. This offseason, we'll add players who better fit our new offense and our new defense than some of the players we have now and we'll improve.

We may see the Skins draft a QB this season or next, but it won't be Andrew Luck. I like Blaine Gabbert but I have no idea which QB's the Skins like in this year's draft class. By April, we may add Gabbert or Newton, or Locker, or Mallet, or whomever to our roster but we'll have no shot at Luck in the 2012 NFL Draft.

some of the teams ahead of us may draft defensive players so the redskins should have a chance at Locker or Mallett.Gabbert won't go #1,but will go before we pick.

One must also remember that many things can change a player's draft stock. Last year, Locker was considered the best qb prospect by the majority. He decides to return to school and has a bad year. Well, his stock has since dropped obviously. Luck could end up having a terrible year or get injured causing his stock to drop as well. I don't wish that for him mind you, I'm just saying that many things can change the outlook of the draft.

Hell, you never know, Danny O'Brien might blow up this year and get some big time attention. I kinda think the kid is gonna be a good one.
