Re: And with the 6th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the redskins select...........

For me, it's always informative to hear what the great Joe Gibbs has to say about the Redskins:

"Generally for me the number one thing you want to try to do, whatever the cost, is try to solve the quarterback situation, get that thing solidified," he said during an appearance on ESPN 980. "I think the Redskins are going through that process, [to find] a solid starter thatíll be in there every game for them, somebody they really can say can take them to the promised land."

I just glad that Joe took the time to back me up on this issue.

Now, with the authority of the great Joe Gibbs behind me, I'm going to tell you what the Skins are going to do about the QB position and what they are not going to do about it this offseason. You wouldn't argue with the great Joe Gibbs, would you? Of course not! So don't argue with me.

1. The Skins are going to get a long-term starting QB this season.
2. They are not going to put a band-aid on the position for another season.
3. They are going to pick a QB in this draft, whether or not they sign a FA or trade for a veteran to be the starter.

Joe Gibbs and I have spoken! So let it be written. So let it be done.

Yes, add Claiborne in there. Some mocks have us w/ Claiborne although not sure I see that. Area of need, yes, just not sure if we'd go defense again.

Re: And with the 6th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the redskins select...........

I could smack the shit out of Cam Newton for being so damn good this year. it has driven the price for RG3 up, and here's the Redskins, with the 6th pick, always on the outside looking in. I mean, I think its not out of the realm of possibility to think that if Cam Newton had that prototypical rookie year, say he threw 8 less TD's and say 5 more int's, and he didnt rush for so many damn yards, that the barometer for RG3 wouldn't be so high. I cant help but think that people look at RG3 and see the following............correct me if I am wrong.

1- A Very humble, intelligent, young black quarterback that has pocket presence, very similar to Cam N.

2- An arm that might not be as strong as Newtons, but can sure get the job done nicely. He can also improve that aspect as well with some strength training.

3- A qb that makes good decisions in the pocket, and some would say is an even better pocket passer than Cam Newton was coming out of college.

4- A qb that is very very fast and mobile, with High agility, ala Cam Newton.

5 - A QB that has elite accuracy, which RG3 has shown he has, and someone whos accuracy doesnt take an absolute nose-dive when out of the pocket, ala Cam Newton.

With Cam Newtons performance this year, and with the absence of Matt barkley and Landry Jones in this years draft pool, I can almost assure you that RG3 is going to be the 2nd pick in this upcoming draft, sort of a 1b type thing. If whoever is currently holding the number 2 selection doesnt want him, someone will put a HUGE amount on the table for him, and here is the rationale in whoevers teams mind in doing that, and making that move.........

"If Cam Newton can do what he did with Carolinas ridiculously low talent squad, what could RG3 do with the pieces I have here?"

and only time will tell if that rationale is flawed.

You might as well be describing Tannehill, with one inconsequential difference

What, that Tannehill can swim?

j/k, omg, Im such a bad person.......I'll send myself to bed tonite without supper, I promise.....

Seriously though, RG3 is going to pack on some pounds, especially before his first NFl training camp, believe that. Whoever drafts him will get his athletic physique, and then slap 15 lbs on it right away on day one, no questions asked. He has elite speed, and another 15 lbs just for some strength and cushion wont take that away, he'd still be faster than almost every other qb in the league. People that say he is undersized and thin, well, he might be.......for the college version of the game.

You'd have to believe that a guy with his intelligence that watches Mike Vick getting slammed with concussions each year, getting broken ribs every other game, etc......is gonna know that to exist and excel, he has to get a tad bit bigger. His size does not concern me one bit. He will still be a premium player day one, right out of the box. And if we draft him and he gets our line, his hits will be limited for 2 key reasons.

#1 - Our line is not too shabby, and have some good young pieces that will only get better.

#2 - Shanny will have a guy that can run his bootlegs and rollouts to perfection. Alot of times, I wouldnt be suprised if he pulls it down and turns on his jets to outrun the OLB shadowing him.

Look, if we get this kid, the possibilities will be limitless, especially with him running this type of offense. Bootlegs and rollouts will be performed flawlessly, and we have the TE's and pass catching RB's with jets of their own to make big problems for defenses, just with rollout seam routes to the TE or even screens to our RB's.

Still, only a few teams will need to reach for a QB in the first round as they'll have prospects that play other positions rated higher on their draft boards. The Skins are in a good position to get one of the top three QB prospects having leverage to trade down from 6th overall since there is a perceived "dropoff" in talent when comparing Luck and Griffin III to fill in the blank.
Since when was Ryan Mallett drafted 10th overall?

Guy just confused him with Gabbert.

I am glad we did not get that kid. We would have been worse off with him at QB and no Kerrigan.

As far as RGIII being undersized he is bigger than both Vick and wait for it... Drew Brees. I bet alot of people thought he was to small to play in the NFL too, but he has broken passing records and won a SB. SO maybe size isn't all it is cracked up to be. Besides 6'2" and 215 is not that small.

Now you give him his 5 lbs back.
