These quarterback rumors are more depressing then anything. So sad.

Re: Matt Barkley Stays (QB Draft Prospect Thread-Episode IV)

from what i am gathering, it seems as if alot of teams plans hinge on rg3's plans now. since barkley did not declare and appears to be staying. there are 2 things i could see happening, as it pertains to the skins.

#1 - we get sam bradford, rams draft rg3 and reload with a bunch of pix from the skins. i do not think we give away our first rounder this year for him, due to some slick negotiating from allen and shanny, but we will definitely give this years second rounder with maybe cooley or davis, plus a first and third next year or something around that for him. Hopefully this is the year that bruce allen really earns his paycheck and makes something like this happen. the rams desperately need playmakers on the ball, and the one area of strength for us is te. it would also give rg3 a reliable necessary option for him at the most important position for a young qb, a reliable te.

#2 - skins just go bpa with their first round pick, and go for our quarterback in the second round in foles or tannehill. this could also mean maneuvering with players/picks in order to move up/down to get whoever is higher on shanahans board, which alot of people around here think is tannehill. this route might also be the best way to stockpile picks or add some by moving down the boards, and still getting the guy we originally were targeting. this is where allen/shanny again will earn their paychecks, and our scouting department will show if they have done their homework.

either way, i think the fan base in washington will be appeased for the moment. the skins would actually have a valid quarterback, or a young stud ready to start on the road to greatness.

the only scenario i hope we do not see is mike shanahan sticking with what he has right now. that would cause the fans in dc to bear arms, and start to riot, if the quarterback question in the district goes unanswered heading into may of 2012.

It's pretty funny. It's December, we're still in season, and it's all that's talked about.

Hey, it's fun to speculate though. The only thing I'm sure about is that none of us knows what's going to happen.

Tannehill's stock will rise just like Ponder's did last year, especially with Barkley's decision.

Scott Tolzien would be interesting if the 49ers let him go.

Yeah, that guy has said earlier in the year that the front office was high on RGIII and Tannehill. Not so much in Barkley. I think RGIII's decision will have a big impact on team's plans. I think if RGIII is there, we draft him.


1)RGIII stays. Rams end up with #1, we trade for Bradford. They draft Luck.
2) RGIII stays. Colts end up with #1, we draft a developmental QB in 2nd round and bring in a Peyton Manning(if healthy) if he is cut by the Colts.
3) RGIII declares. We move up in the draft to select him #2.

These are the few scenarios I see going down. Hopefully options 1 or 3 don't cost us too much.

If we don't get Luck or RGIII, I would trade down and go get Foles.

Re: Matt Barkley Stays (QB Draft Prospect Thread-Episode IV)

Didn't the Colts owner just come out and say that if Manning plays in 2012, it will be with the Colts?

I'd say there is .00001% chance Manning will be with the Redskins next year.

The whole Sam Bradford thing is interesting... but I just don't see them dumping him after 2 seasons with a terrible supporting cast.

Is there any heat around Jake Locker? That's who I wanted the Skins to get this past draft... I like him and think he'd be a good fit for the system... I doubt the Titans have any interest in moving him... but it's a name no one has said yet... lol

What the owner says and what the owner does is two different things. I wouldn't put much stock into a owner saying anything really. If he can save 28 million, he's going to do it. I think it all hinges on Manning's health really. If he's healthy, I believe the Colts keep him one more year while drafting Luck (if they have the #1) at the same time.

If they cut him, it makes you wonder about the true state of his health.

I agree though, I don't see Manning as a Redskin unless RGIII stays, the Rams don't get the #1 spot, the Colts cut Manning and he's completely 100% healthy. This is about the only realistic scenario I see him as a Skin.

Re: Matt Barkley Stays (QB Draft Prospect Thread-Episode IV)

Young QB's that we havent guessed who could be the big rumor?

I'm still feeling Josh Freeman is the guy, but other legitimate big time starters would include Rivers (good one right?) or Joe Flacco?

Otherwise, I'd like to take a shot at Clausen or Mallett and draft a Landry Jones type.

Why does everyone prefer Jones to Tannehil? Jones seems way more appealing as a prospect.
