Do Thomas and Kelly even count as supporting parts? What were they supporting exactly, other than Mike Shanahan's eventual ascension to head coach here.

Unfortunately it would appear that some of our esteemed members want to judge our players on weather or not they have a model quality girlfriends.

Well Devin Thomas was a gift for the local ladies and Malcolm Kelly was a kickback to the local doctors.

Still don't like this move. Not at all. I would've kept the picks and drafted someone. RG3 has a ton of upside but that doesn't always translate to the pro game.

Actually that strategy can work to an extent, but it takes a lot of suffering, and its still not enough. You have to have a top 11 pick for at least 7 years straight. You'll have to go through many coaches, and even those fired coaches might have helped out the team in the future by straightening out a "problem child" player, and you hit on "THE ONE" coach and then with all that top 11 talent(although the QB plays well below his draft position), go to the NFC Championship game and then have the returner screw it up.

But it might not have mattered anyway if Tom Brady had his way.

I think if we sign 3 free agents WR, O lineman and maybe DB that are young and can contribute as starters we will make up for.the 3 picks. Well at least that's what I'll keep.telling myself

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

Mortgaging the future would be a gross understatement per this trade. Unless RGIII is a perennial pro-bowler by his second season and leading this team to the playoffs every year he plays more than 12 games, then this is an epic fail. As someone else put it, if RGIII isn't the answer for the Skins over the next decade this trade will be widely recognized as the worst in the modern era of the game.

I cannot even imagine the pressure this kid will feel come regular season...wouldn't wanna trade places w/ him for all the tea in China. The pressure surrounding the Skins QB is one reason I believe Manning, arguably the most mature QB in football, would be the better/best fit. This is flat scary.

One last thought: it's a bit concerning to me his girlfriend isn't a bombshell. I tend to see that as symptomatic of a lack in confidence (in Griffin)...but I'm no psychiatrist.

I prefer his college number 10 or 11. Honestly, 2,5,6,7,9,10,11,17,19 would look good.
