Pretty much sums up how I feel about this trade, now that it is a week old.

Now I'll vote how I'm not in favor.

That's a lot of our future right there, and I would have preferred to trade back, not up!

Giants fans said the same for Eli but they aren't anymore

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

the trade is a done deal, get over it. i will say it again, we gave up 2 #1's and 1 #2. not 3 #1's, we still have a #1 pick this year. we have missed on QB's in the past but the two most recent were Campbell and Ramsey both late 1st round picks. we are going for it hoping to get a franchise QB, who knows if it will pan out.

How did the redskins' future look to you without Manning or RGIII at qb?

It was iffy at best for me looking at the redskins without one of those 2.

I certainly don't want to minimize the value of a first round pick, but we have had good first round picks for the last decade and haven't gotten over the hump. Every single person knows what we need first and foremost is a top level qb. While one or two of the second level qbs most likely will make it I am a cynical enough skins fan to assume whichever one we took will be a bust. Not the best rationale for supporting the trade(assuming general incompetence in a teams ability to pick the best mid level guy) but it is what it is.

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

A week after the trade I realize how historic it was. Only the Herschel Walker trade involved as many #1's going from one team to another, making the Griffin trade arguably bigger than even the Ricky Williams deal.

That said, I feel very comfortable with it. If a historic trade gives us a historically awesome QB, I'm all for it.

Our first rounders in recent years havent been exactly busts but they never made the difference they should have. I'm ok with losing a 2 first rounders to take a chance on an elite talent.

What if it gives us a guy who has Donovan McNabb's career?

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

In regards to gtripps question:

To be perfectly honest, and don't every one go biting my head for this, I'd take it. A nice run of NFC East Championships and constant playoff appearances is a far cry from what we've seen here in recent times.

You forgot Heath Shuler. However, I am for the trade. The skins did the right thing to grab a qb that they think fits the offense, and one who is coachable. If they sat around waiting for a qb to drop in their lap, or signed another teams cast-off it may or may not work. I'd rather had the team succeed or fail with the guy they really wanted and is a home grown product.

I dont think that would be an issue with a high caracter person like Griffin. I mean where exactly would he wanna play if not here? We are a much better option then other QB needy teams like the Browns, Dolphins, and Jags.
