I wish it could have been a 2nd next year instead. But it was probably the trump card that pushed this deal over the top.

Still, I could see Allen doing something to move back up.

Hey so where's the "insider" that was convinced we were getting McCoy and Shipley?

Probably crying in his corn flakes this morning.

Either way, the Skins are getting (were obviously assuming) a GREAT quarterback, on paper that is.
Not that I think we care about getting Luck, but if we did the only way to do that would be to get to 2 and then trade to 1. The Colts need one of the 2 quarterbacks, so I don't think they would have traded down to 6 no matter what.

Why give up another for Luck if ya think Griffin is better or at least equal to Luck?

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.
Yeah but none of the trading we've done has translated to wins.

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!

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.
