It's not about his skill set. It's about his size. Shanny does not typically have huge, hulking 340 pound linemen. He likes smaller, quicker ones. Just because his scouting report says he is quick off the snap, he's still quick off the snap for a 340 pound linemen. That's most likely not as quick as a smaller, more agile lineman.

Damn it, you figured out the Giants plan. They knew they could lose both the Skins and still get into the play-offs so they laid down for the Skins to hurt their draft position.

Winning cost us 2 first rounders and a second. Never thought about it like that until now. Now that's interesting and a shame almost

We got hosed. Huge overeach. Shanny and Bruce figure they will be gone in a year or two anyways, so who cares about losing the future first rounders is their thought process.

We need Brandon Marshall to salvage this already devastating offseason...

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

The price was high, but I don't have a big problem with it. The market sets the price and there were other teams that would have ended up stepping up and paying the same thing, or something very close to it.

If you believe he's a rare talent that can elevate the franchise for the next decade, my thought on it all offseason has been go big or go home. I think the time was right to make this move. We have the cap room now to surround him with established talent, and Allen is crafty at wheeling and dealing in the draft to acquire more picks.

RGIII will put butts in the seats, create buzz on and off the field, and he gives us a legit potential superstar QB for the first time in forever.

Hard to be choosy in the 3rd round. I would like a few others before these as well but 3rd round is usually not a round to pick the lineman of your choice as if you know they would still be there in the 3rd and not have to worry about it. We would be lucky to get such talent in the 3rd. Not saying there isn't talent in the 3rd and they might find a quick lineman. But this is good talent and I'm sure he is quick enough for Shanny. He is as good a guard as we have now for sure.

If RG III were white, fans would apporve this trade in a heartbeat. LOL

I guess No-one remember us completely ripping off the the Rams 3 years ago in the Carriker trade. It might not be that sexy but we got a first round talent and a starter for 14 spots in the 5th round. And it really looks like we were on the right side of the Blaine Gabbert move back trade last year where we got some guy named kerrigan ( I think he is going to be pretty good) and another draft pick. I will admit that these trades have been few and far between in the last ten years or so but that was the old regime this one has a track record albeit small but a track record all the same of making great trades and hopefully this will turn into the best one yet.

I love this move and think it absolutely had to happen.

No need to dumb the thread down. Almost 90% already approve.

I'm not unhappy with it at all. Just wish we had held onto our 2nd.

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

WOW. Thats all I have to say. I called this trade 4 months ago.

My question is though, if Washington gave THAT much up to get RGIII, why not go up one more for Luck? Would the price be that much more for one slot?

Either way, the Skins are getting (were obviously assuming) a GREAT quarterback, on paper that is.
