Good one. RT @WhitlockJason: Source: David Stern plans to veto Redskins-Rams trade. Story is developing, check back later for details.
I almost shit myself for a half a second until I realized David Stern is not Roger Goodell. I guess this means we won't get Chris Paul to be our #1 receiver??

Shoot, he can be good and we're still ****ed. He had better be solid gold for this price.

Trade will not change Redskins plans in pursuing Peyton Manning. Intend to talk with and try to sign him, even if considered a longshot.

In all honesty, I happen to prefer what the Redskins actually did to taking Tannehill at six.

But I have to be right about BOTH Griffin AND Tannehill. If not right about both, then I am wrong about preferring this trade.

If Griffin isn't the clear no. 1 on the depth chart in 2014 for whatever reason and Tannehill is starting in this league, this will be the worst trade in modern NFL history, and what Shanahan will ultimately be remembered for, instead of the super bowls.

So yeah, this is very much going all-in. Recklessly all-in.

So Lotus, who would you get for RG3 to throw to since we have no second rounder now?
Vincent Jackson
Marques Colston
Robert Meachem
Reggie Wayne
Pierre Garcon
Mario Manningham

But I'm not Lotus....

It appeared to be true- Shanahan would be fired if he didn't pick up RGIII or Manning- or by some miracle another qb would have been able to play well enough for redskins to get into the playoffs.

What would you have done in Shanahans place?
Going all in isn't the style that BA and Shanny started off with in their first two drafts. Get more picks, draft smart, draft needs. RG III right now might be akin to Vick in ATL. He will be fun to watch, but with a less talented supporting cast. Face it you go all in and lose, you lose for awhile. What happened when we drafted Shuler, many thought he was a sure thing also way back then. The Shuler debacle killed this team for over a decade. We still haven't found a franchise QB!! I really hope I am eating crow this time in 2013, but if I am not Holy Shit, you might be looking at another 2-4 years of crappy win loss records.

We gave up the ghost for a guy with reat talent, but who doesn't have the best Wr corp or O line protecting him. If our WR corp was more reliable and the O line solid the deal would have been OK, but with the reality of the situation, this is a big ass gamble.
Yes, we have holes but a great QB makes a team better. Place some of the Patriots offensive playmakers on the Skins with Grossman at QB and see how great they do.

It's not like we traded a 2nd for TJ Duckett all over again.

Re: Redskins agree to trade for No.2 overall pick in 2012 Draft

Ok even though the surprise is gone every single one of us will be watching the draft just to see RG3's name get called up for us. Remember this moment. The moment the Redskins were reborn haha

I think he could have tried to poach Alex Smith as a stopgap.

That would have been buying high, sure, and Smith isn't anyone's franchise quarterback, but it would have been a legit acquisition at the QB position that wouldn't have cost draft value and would have swung the leverage back to the Redskins.

So much for stopping acting like a child and letting it go.

"Originally Posted by GusFrerotte
Stupid. You just traded away 3 badly needed starters for one. What happened through getting more picks like NE and building steadily. This kid isn't a Manning or Elway or Luck type out of college. He is a very good QB no less, but played in a weakend Big 12 that happens to be defensively deficient most of the time. Snyder has done it again, got the fans snagged on the hot sexy pick, hoping it will pan out. I think BA and Shanny are feeling the heat so they went against the plan to save their asses. I like RG III a lot, but 3 first rounders for a still unproven commodity at the NFL level is not wise."

I'm not a "RGII walks on water person", but I'll say this...

vs Texas = #11 defense in the country in 2012 (they were VERY good):
RGIII - 15-22, 320 yds, 2 TD, INT

vs TCU = #34 in the country:
21-27, 359 yds, 5 TD, 0 INT

Those aren't OK numbers... they are great... and he's playing with a Baylor offensive line (not Wisconsin's), and throwing to Baylor WRs (not Miami's or USCs).

I just mean, he may flop, but I hate when people use the whole Big 12 argument... that's just me.

In other news Vinny Cerrato says he would have done the same for Justin Blackmon. LOL.
