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

What would you have rather had? I am excited for this team and its future and it has been a while. What keep hoping for next year since we always just miss out on that quarterback. We are basically giving up two additional first round picks and a second. I wouldn't prefer it but I like it more than hoping to get a quarterback next year. I am sick of waiting and now I know we got a playmaker and not rex grossman looking like an idiot. Quarterbacks make teams and now we finally have a team.

If we're comparing those draft classes.
Ryan Tannehill = Alex Smith
Andrew Luck = Aaron Rodgers
RGIII = ????

Here's hoping that he's better than Rodgers, but I think RGIII is better than Smith right now.

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.
Agreed. Just a bit too reckless for my taste right now. Like I said, Griffin had better be solid gold. Forget clear #1 by 2014; we'd better be talking Pro Bowl in 2014.

No need to watch the first hour of the draft lol. Time to get the RG3 jersey, as soon as find out what number he is.

I was just driving on my lunch break and almost crashed my pickup when they broke this on KNBR. WTF is Shannahan doing! I rather take Tannehill instead of paying that price.

On the bright side, at least we have higher expectations for this quarterback than "worth two weeks of Doug Dutch."

So Lotus, who would you get for RG3 to throw to since we have no second rounder now?
Give it up. You didn't call anything because you did not say 3 #1's and a #2.

If your point was that Griffin would be expensive, many others said that, so why are you gloating?

Since you haven't gotten the point, let me say it in caps: DOUCHE.

So happy!!! I still can not even gather my thoughts...just so incredibly happy. I will wait until at least tomorrow to start praying that he's as good as advertised.
