Somebody posted earlier that it has been approved.

A ROY type candidate out of that pick could have been the difference between contention and non-contention. Obviously, the probability of getting a guy like that with the 39th pick isn't very high to begin with, it is just now (barring some sort of lopsided trade in the Redskins favor) zero.

So the plan for contention before the Griffin trade was 1) upgrade significantly at quarterback, and 2) find one or two absolute studs in the 2012 draft (Trent Richardson/Morris Claiborne and maybe Kendall Wright in the second or Joe Adams in the third). After the Griffin trade, which figures to significantly (though unreliably, at least in year one) improve that QB position, the plan for immediate is to produce one of the great free agent classes of all time, and then do as well as humanly possible in the draft. Maybe make a trade that further mortgages the future.

Which just means that contention in 2012 gets a lot less likely unless Griffin has some sort of insane rookie year that blows Cam Newton and Andy Dalton out of the water. In which case: good trade.
Blowing Andy out of the water should be at least the goal to surpase for our rookie QB. If you check his numbers they are not that great. If this guy is as good a fit as everyone says he will be and as good as he is touted to be then he should well surpass Dalton. We will see.

I have said this before, there will not be a rookie QB for a long time who puts up Newton numbers, and there won't be a QB in the league that puts up Newton's rushing touchdowns any time soon except for maybe Newton.

Umm. No actually. It says submitted not approved by league. The league has to sign off on this too. No one is saying that we actually HAVE the no. 2. yet

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

I heard last night, that in 2013 the Redskins have a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 5th(Haynesworth), 6th, 7th, 7th(McNabb). A total of 8 picks. I was happy to hear about the 7th, for McNabb. I was told because he got cut, we got nothing.

Hey, nothing doom and gloom about it. We just saw the NBA reject a huge trade, plus what happened to our cap space just before FA and the ongoing Gregg Williams scandal. Just wanted this thing signed, sealed and delivered. Now rejoice Redskins' Nation.

So in two years, after RGIII's 2nd ProBowl, the league will come back and sanction us because the trade was an unfair practice?

If the SKINS talk to Indy there probably hoping Indy announces there taking Luck so they can say RG3 and sign him to a contract already.

I don't think they can theoreticially do that until Luck is signed.

I think your right, something tells me Indy will pick RG3 we still win by getting Luck, but I think with the WR's we are picking up they go better with RG3.

We're in a win/win with either guy. Both have the skillsets and smarts to fit this offense.

It feels like people are starting to get down on Luck for some reason. Not sure why. I'd be happy with either, however.
