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

Every hour that goes by I feel more and more confident with this trade. The upside is so high and worst case scenario we have a competent quarterback for several years.

We've hit on Orakpo, Trent and Kerrigan. We have a good foundation of youth, it's time to get some free agents/build from within/and watch the most exciting quarterback in the league.

We are once again a legitimate franchise.

Part of me wonders if we get RG3 or Luck ; would not surprise me if RG3 went first

Rams have some interesting choices at 6. They can possibly trade up to Minnesota with their 6th and 2nd round pick to assure they get Blackmon. Or if a team wants to jump Miami to get Tannehill they can trade back and pick up a third 2nd round pick.

Don't think the colts will pass on luck, but if they do good for us.

Yes I would much rather have pics of him in a hot tub with three gorgeous women. That would be MUCH better.

As to the trade, love RGIII, and drinking the kool-aid I will say it is better to give up one pick a year rather than giving a ton of picks in any one draft.

That's essentially the Shanaplan in a nutshell.
Then you haven't been paying attention. I've quoted ES insiders several times over the course of this past year that RGIII was very high on the Skins list. This isn't something new that just came up.

What Shanny says, and what he does doesn't always equal. Two things we can deduce from this trade:

1) Shanahan believes this kid is the real deal.

2) They are desperate as hell.

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

MY personal thoughts on this trade. First off, I want to state that I love RGIII as a prospect and wanted him here as our QB.


That said, I think they gave up entirely too much to get him and no doubt Shanahan has put his career at stake with this move. I personally think we weren't at the stage in our rebuild to make a move like this, but we'll see how this plays out over the course of the next 3 years.


My other concern with this move is the expectations and pressure that is going to be heaved on RGIII. Fans are celebrating this as if we've landed a franchise QB, but the reality of it is we haven't. We've landed a very good prospect who hasn't played a single snap of NFL football yet. We can hardly call any rookie a franchise QB until this all plays out.

In a small way I almost feel bad for RG3. He's coming to a bad team that's putting all their hopes on him.... that's going to have to go the free agent route to improve, and be dead on with their draft picks.

Aren't most top 5 players going to bad teams? Thus the reason they are picking first? Kind of a moot point.

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

He will be fine. I sincerely believe that Kyle and Mike will put the best situation around this guy to succeed. What we get is a prolific QB with a great arm, great vision and good decision making capabilities, both on the field and off. Free Agency will be very important, and we will have to be very smart, and get people on the upswing instead of the downswing.

It will be challenging, but I think that 99% of Redskins fans are more optimistic today about the direction of this franchise than they were just yesterday.

True but most top prospects go to bad teams. Once this deal is finalized on Tuesday we must move on, it's over and done with. Shannahan had to get a QB this year and with manning looking like he wasn't coming here the move had to be made. Will there be a lot of pressure on him, yes you better believe it. Can he handle it?

Yes he can, he is smart kids with a good head on his shoulders.

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.
I think what this really shows is it's an organization (and fan base) that's desperate and impatient.
