Hopefully Griffin is single or dating Miss America by regular season lol...
And everyone said you can't go wrong with RGIII, he always makes the right decisions or choices.

On a side note,

I'm not sure if someone tweeted to Oldenburg or if he put it out there but the tweet said "David Stern to veto Redskins/Rams trade, keep following story developing."

Not sure if they were just being stupid or if there is something to it and not sure if the trade can be stopped. Does the League have to agree with the trade or can teams trade without League approval?

I think Jason Whitlock was the first one to tweet this and it was more a pun at Stern who vetoed the Chris Paul to the Lakers trade.

It is 1:05 in the morning pst! I am going to read every single post before I go to bed, I am so jacked up right now! HAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!

If you think the price was too much, you could be right, but lets enjoy it, we have a franchise QB. Does it feel good? Fluffing right it does. Have I mentioned HAILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

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

This trade is a bad one for the Redskins. They have once again given up too much compensation for a player and have undervalued the draft. I have a difficult time actually seeing this as being any different than any other trade that they have made in the last 12 years. If anyone had thrown out this trade as a hypothetical there would have been 50 pages of people saying "that is horrible, it is mortgaging the Redskins future!" Then it actually happens and people are dancing in the streets. And a picture of Griffin holding a Lombardi trophy. Really? At least the expectations are realistic and you recognize the immense value that the Redskins have given up. To put it in concrete terms, if the Giants had made this trade in 2004 for Eli Manning and you look at the players picked with the equivalent picks that the Redskins gave up, it is Phillip Rivers, Chris Snee, Shawn Merriman, and Santonio Holmes (Giants traded out of pick 25, they actually drafted Kiwanuka). Every one of those players has played in a Pro Bowl. Hey, but at least the Redskins are only one player away from a championship! Plus this trade will actually have compounding results because it will compel the Redskins to go and overpay for marginal players in free agency (I'm thinking Colston and VJax, but just throw in their equivalents, guys who will be overpaid based upon their numbers in very favorable offensive systems with very good QBs), both this year and in coming years. The only one (admittedly I did not read EVERY post) willing to actually say that the Redskins horribly overpaid is GTripp. I think Redskins fans might just get what they deserve.

Negative Nelly. I have wanted RG3 since September but I think the price is too high. With that said RG3 is not a pro ready qb and perhaps that with the new rookie wage scale this trade makes sense. While we turn him into a pro qb, we surround him with some mid level talent and by the time he is an all-pro we will be able to draft good toys for him.

We need to a build a team. An athletic qb with accuracy, a run game, and a turnover based D sounds like it a good foundations in today's league. Only time will tell if we gave up too much.

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

This is a great trade. Although I'm still not totally convinced that Irsay takes Luck. Either way we have a franchise QB. I know a 1st for 1st, 2nd, 1st, 1st seems like a lot. But it's really not if we consistently play .500 ball. Sure we need other areas. All teams do. Even the Pats or Packers. I'm excited to see Luck or more probably RG3 in Burgundy and Gold! Go Redskins! Thanks for making my offseason always exciting!!!
