Wow... really?? What a douche comment to make.

I was simply pointing out a positive of the situation that WILL BE.

All of you guys who want to bitch and moan about 2013 & 2014 1st round picks all you want... That's called "Crying over spilled milk."

Ever heard of that? It's what 2 year olds do... cry over things that they can't change.

This is our situation now... find something positive in it or walk away... damn.

The Cardinals haven't even been a relevant threat since 2008. They have their own problems. Dockett obviously hasn't heard of that whole glass house metaphor.

Their OL has been trash, but Cutler is also never going to be the player he was in 2008. He's somewhere between the 10th and 25th best player in the league at his position.

If Griffin's that, we lose this trade, and he probably doesn't get a second contract here.

The redskins should throw all of their focus and money towards vincent jackson.

Then pick up: Chris Myers or Ben Grubbs or both at c/g
And attempt to pick up a decent rt- possibly gaithers or Levi brown.

And pick up Brandon Carr at corner. And finally go after a middle lb: either Tolluch or lofton.

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