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.
This. Couldn't agree more!

Losing out on RG3 is devastating to Browns - AFC North Blog - ESPN

I'm glad we made this move before Griffin has his proday and wows the media once again. The trading partners could've went up after his pro day.

Maybe if he is amazing enough at his proday we can trade the pick to the browns for their two first rounders this year and their 1st rounders in 13 and 14.

j/k, I am excited about RGIII.

Nice to know that the Browns were willing to do about the same deal. I'd like to think we offered just a tad bit more to get it done. If giving up a 2nd this year can be called a tad. Still good to know we didn't offer much more more than the Browns. That article actually makes me feel better. Thanks

That about sums up where we would have been if BA/MS didn't get the deal done.

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

so they are done with the colt mccoy project? i thought he could stick it out with them for a year, they had a better qb situation than us, more up side at least. sure dosen't sound like clevland wants anything to do with him.

So basically the other QB's in this draft have no chance at being successful starters? Not buying it.

And why did you want Clausen here? LOL... I hope he does well to shut up some of the whiny fans up. You wanted RG III, and we have him (or luck). You didn't want Grossman Back or manning or beck or weeden. Make up your minds folks. George, Ramsey, Ferotte, Shuler etc. Ring a bell? I would actually have liked for them to not RG III, and gotten cousin/tanneyhill. Or Manning and for it not to work. I would really like to see your reaction them. The skins made a bold move. We just to wait to see how it plays out.

Still, I could see Allen doing something to move back up.
Curious...What ammunition do you think he has to move back up into the second?

I think he will deal fine with pressure. He did fine with pressure the last 3-4 games when he was making the push for the heisman.
