Wish it was conditional at least. If RGIII is a bust and doesn't start at least half the games in 2013 the pick turns into a 2nd or 3rd. Is that even possible?

That would've been nice.

I'm hearing the Browns attempted to match our offer but we already had an agreement in place with the Rams. So, the Rams didn't renig on the deal after it was in place.

It's not 3 1st rounders, we're swapping 1's this year, so we would be giving up 2 first rounders.

Giants gave up what was thought to be alot for Eli to move up a few spots. We all know how that turned out...

I guess they like RGIII enough...so I'll trust MS on this one.

Yea, a lot of people seem to be misquoting this trade. The media is portraying it as 3 first rounders though.

Two first rounders and a second round pick. I was hoping I would wake up this morning to hear the 2nd round pick being mentioned wasn't included but no luck with that.

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

After a night to sleep on it:

First: So all the picks they gave away are technically all under the Shanahan regime. They go right up to the end of his 5 year contract, which I think is a bit of coincidence and necessity. I really think Snyder is committed with sticking to just one guy for a while and that he's not on the hot seat this year, even with one more mediocre year (unless it's a bomb like 2-14 or something). So theoretically, it's not in the past where coaches are mortgaging the future for other coaches.

Second: I had some sticker shock when I learned of what they gave up, but then I realized there must of been very high interest from other teams that made them to do this. Hell, latest reports were CLE would match the deal, so I'm sure they were strong in the running along with other teams which we don't know about that drove the price up.

Third: They are very high on Griffen (along with a lot of other people) and they knew their QB situation was bad. The "safe" move I suppose would be to have drafted maybe Tannenhill or sign Orton, spent the other picks continuing to build the "base", and then in the next year draft their highly touted QB. But, they got their guy who is a very good fit for the system of bootlegs and moving around and can finally say they have drafted their franchise QB.

And Most Important:

Fourth: I am really interested to see how they approach Free Agency. This entire emotion behind this move feels like the Redskins of Old . We are posting pictures of RG3 in redskins gear hosting trophies and most of us have already though of that first bootleg roll out when RG3 has plenty of space in front of him. It's another big splash, big move, lots of hype, but who knows what will show up on the field.

I hope they approach FA like they did last year: making solid above average signings for reasonable cash. The only place I see them going overboard is WR. If they go out and get all the big names and bring in a ton of people, I'm not sure if this is really a new way of running the redskins.

That's pretty much how I feel. If this team is going to lose games, at least trick me into thinking you're actually trying to win them in the first place. I was pretty pissed going into last season with Grossman and Beck; this offseason I badly wanted Robert Griffin III, I can't complain now. I'm actually ecstatic now. At least we're taking a chance on winning as opposed to trotting out the same garbage quarterbacks we did last year. Seriously, I had absolutely no faith in Beck or Grossman putting together enough wins to get into the playoffs and...shocker they didn't. I'm actually energized as a fan again because I want to see how this kid works out. Damn this Kool-Aid tastes good...lol.

Look, I'm not crazy about what we gave up, but no one will be talking me off of any ledges either. It might be a tough pill to swallow, but I can do it because I think there are only 2 franchise quarterbacks in this draft and now we're getting one of them. This is the first time in a long time I've felt like the Skins are in a good spot at QB. For me, that's worth the price.

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

Honestly, it's a hefty price for an unknown, but he's seen as the franchise. I think if we didn't pull the trigger on this deal, there would have been more complaints about being satisfied with the mediocrity we've seen here for however long. I think free agency will be our lost draft picks. I have to believe this is part of the Shanaplan, because if I don't there's a 2 liter bottle of Everclear with my name on it.

Not only that, with some improvement (hopefully) those first rounders might be in the high twenties.

I think it will be huge now to make sure that Fletcher is resigned and we get at least ONE of the marquee names at WR.
