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

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.

LMAO I know right? I had to re-read that like 3 times to make sure I read that right. ya I have no clue how that has anything to do with him or football. But I feel that its a good move. But it could hurt us. Time will tell honestly.

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

yes I bought a bottle of J Walker Gold earlier and sipped it liberally. But seriously, if a dude doesn't have an attractive girlfriend/wife I tend to think he lacks confidence. I say this from experience on both sides of the coin. If a rich, famous, star athlete doesn't have a bombshell girlfriend there's something amiss IMO.

Hopefully Griffin is single or dating Miss America by regular season lol...

Lucky for me, I'm taking a course on intimate relationships and hence find this pop psychology...annoying.

Studies have shown people tend to pair with those who are similar in attractiveness to themselves. However, environmental factors such as wealth or other flashy things can make a man be perceived as more attractive by the opposite sex. But since I'm just reguritating info, I think the first 45 minutes of this documentary should do better at explaining than I can.

Confidence plays a small role compared to the automatic processes of the body.

Or the Ricky Williams trade...
