This is where I'm at. I was shocked at what it cost, but it cost what it cost. We have a qb. Finally. It's going to be very exciting If nothing else.

Also, I have no photoshop skills, so it'll be a while before I get banned.

I don't know if I ever had sticker shock because the team had never convinced me it knew what it was doing before. So I wasn't like WHOA WHERE DID THOSE CAJONES COME FROM?!?!?! It was consistent with what we had seen from the Redskins before.

My first emotion when word of the trade was joy, and then the joy faded when it became obvious that the Redskins didn't pull of a great deal or better their team or anything. They just cashed in their chips in what I would call a calculated, though impatient, manner.

Free agency was always going to define the quality of their offseason IMO. So I'm definitely still taking a wait and see approach to grading this offseason because we don't know how well they've set the team up for the future yet.
I really hope that they snag at least one of the top tier wide receivers for RG3 to throw to. Bowe or Jackson would be nice. I'm hearing noise that Shanny really wants VJax. I wasn't really thrilled about it at first. However, I just heard a story about VJax. Apparently, on a recent flight, VJax helped a disabled veteran from his seat to the airplane bathroom, and before the guy got off the plane, he went out of his way to give him an autograph. If that represents his character, then I'd welcome him on this team.

RGIII was great in college but he hasnt taken a pro snap yet so he cant be called a stud yet.

He's a stud athlete and we don't have many guys that scare defenses.. now we do, guys like Cam and Vick are nightmares for defenses. RG fits that category

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

It's funny how there's several articles and posts that say the trade for the 2nd pick is risky. Gambles are considered risky by how much that can be potentially lost. What exactly can the redskins say they have right now that they would be losing?

They've been near the bottom of the division nearly every year. In order to turn things around they needed to take that chance and overpay. I consider it bold rather than risky.

I agree we have sucked for along time and haven't ever really had a QB that we would even think could be a franchise QB. Every player u pick is just a prospect. We took a chance for out QB, now let's see what happens.

I told you that I wouldn't let you down. Once I know his true number, I'll take it down.

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

Here's a thought...

Anyone have a thought that the Skins have contacted the Colts about their plans at #1?

Basically, if we KNOW they are taking Luck, then we can start getting all of the parameters in place for a contract before the draft, so RGIII can dive right into the playbook (just like Luck).

I mean, would the Colts share that info (if they are drafting Luck or RGIII) if Allen asks? What would keep them from talking and sharing that info?

Wins between 2012-2016?

The gamble is of course that you win more games as a function of having Robert Griffin play quarterback than you would with someone else (Ryan Tannehill) playing quarterback and with three declining free agents instead of three ascending draft picks (assuming 53 man rosters throughout).

You lose the gamble if Tannehill + 3 ascending players would have outperformed Griffin and three free agents who we wouldn't have needed if we had draft picks. You win the gamble if Griffin and whoever we sign to help Griffin wins more games than Tannehill and those picks would have.
