It was a steep price to pay, but IF Griffin works out, it's well worth it. If we win the next few years, those future picks will be even less valuable. IF griffin works out, who cares what we gave up?
That is what scares the crap out of me...to trade multiple first rounders away, you need to come up with a multiple pro bowl player in an impact position, not the hope of one.

Dear RG3,

Please start practicing snapping the ball from under starting starting Monday. I will give you the weekend to go have fun with your cutie/hottie girlfriend. Thanks.

Sorry so many emotions going on right now. Lost my smartphone tonight, got to go to work tomorrow but this is great news.

It's just great to see we'll finally be getting a QB, and one hell of a QB at that. Sorry but Landry, Orakpo, Kerrigan, and Davis are worth one potential franchise QB.

Guys with RGIII's experience, tools, and intangibles don't usually bust, nor come around often so I think it's safe to say that we'll end up with a good if not great one on our hands. Either way our running game is going to be improved and we will cut down on turnovers with this trade. Thats an improvement right there.

Might take a year or two but the NFC East better watch out.

Ovechkin, Strasburgh, Wall, and now RGIII.

Ovechkin is quietly making himself irrelevant, or at least relatively so compared to the others.

Andrew Luck aside, I haven't given a player this high a grade since either Matt Leinart or Brady Quinn.

Given proper context, I have no idea what I'm trying to say here. Don't draft a top QB with an embattled coach, maybe? No, that's probably not it.

RG3 does seem to be starting with a lot more talent here than Luck has in Indy though. Maybe more talent than Tannehill too, if Tannehill gets stuck in Cleveland or Seattle.

Miami's in the catbird seat now though. They pretty much get us out of the way, don't have to worry all that much about the Browns, and can pick Tannehill/Osweiler/Foles/Weeden or whoever at no. 9 if they wish.

3 high draft picks for one guy? What an overpay! When do we ever get on the right side of trades? Never. I like RG3 a lot but not at this price. This team simply isn't in a position to throw away high draft picks.

We got on the right side of a trade in 2008. The Falcons gave us two 2nd round picks and we ended up with three pass catchers. Look supporting parts are great but without a QB they're just luxuries. Look at any successful team, the QB is the true foundation. Other parts can easily be replaced but almost every move is made around the QB, at least when you have a good one.
