My ass is only slightly chapped that we gave up our second this year. It was almost like a first rounder due to our shitty record. I can't imagine that next year's second rounder wasn't good enough.

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

The price is much higher than I thought it would be, the 2014 First was the kicker but you know what, if those are late in the first round which means that we are WINNING so I won't care at that point. We've sucked for so long that we seem to associate a first rounder with a top 10 selection. If those picks are in the bottom 10 of the draft I'll be ok with it.

The other benefit (we have plenty of time to debate RGIII) of making this trade now is clarity for the rest of the offseason. Our top question has been answered, we know who the QB will be, now we can shop in free agency without having to wonder who is going to be under center. We can focus on WR, OL, RB, S, CB with our $45 million in cap space.

I'm waking up on the sunny side of the bed this morning, we got our QB, we still have 7 picks in 2012, 7 picks in 2013 & 6 picks in 2014.

We all agreed Manning or RGIII/ Luck. So I'm stoked

Exactly. I don't know who it was (EARTHQUAKE maybe?) who said, "Would you be willing to trade a couple Ryan Kerrigans for RGIII?"

The answer for me is a resounding YES.

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

I haven't noticed SmootSmack post anything yet...

Is there still a chance or scenario where we trade Orakpo for a 1st round pick this year or next? He was mentioned at one point as being on the table with some team... I assumed the Rams, but apparently not?

Anyone?

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

They way I see it is, nothing good comes easy, nothing good comes cheap. The Redskins obviously had to do something. We can talk about the team mortgaging the future for one guy all day. Well, what type of future do you think this team has without a franchise quarterback? Nothing special in my opinion. I would have been ecstatic with Peyton Manning/Ryan Tannehill. But, Peyton obviously did not want to come to Washington. And honestly, I don't think Mike Shanahan was in the position to go the Orton/Tannehill or Cousins route. In the end, you gotta put butts in seats and you gotta have an instant game changer. RGIII's that guy.

Thinking optimistically, Griffin comes in and turns this team into an exciting, deadly great team. Nobody will be talking about the bounty that the 'skins gave up.

we have our QB, no need to trade our stud OLB pro bowler for a pick that we dont seem to value to highly in the first place. Keep our young talent and be super smart in free agency.

A lot to give up. I'll play Captain Obvious here and give the super insightful opinion that this will be the start of a great era for the Skins (ala the Colts and Peyton) or push them further into disaster (Browns and Tim Couch).

My first thought is they gave up too much, but I thought the same thing when my squad landed Eli so what the hell do I know?

Class move
Would it be a class move if we traded the number 2 pick to the browns for their slightly better offer???

I agree.

I was asking if anyone had any inside information on if this was/is part of this whole plan... use Rak to gain back one (or 2) of the picks.

I'm not for it... I'm just seeing if there is the chance of it happening.
