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

The Chargers got 1st a 3rd and a 5th for Eli Manning.

The Chargers got a 3rd, 2nd and Tim Dwight for Vick.

We gave up two 1st and a 2nd for RGIII.

Looking at the above trades and value we got ripped for sure. I hope we get multiple superbowls out of this. Hopefully, it does down as one of the greatest trades ever in our favor instead of turning the Rams franchise around.

It appeared to be true- Shanahan would be fired if he didn't pick up RGIII or Manning- or by some miracle another qb would have been able to play well enough for redskins to get into the playoffs.

What would you have done in Shanahans place?
Instead of giving up 3 #1's and a #2, I'd have stayed at 6 and taken Tannehill.

We gave up the ghost for a guy with reat talent, but who doesn't have the best Wr corp or O line protecting him. If our WR corp was more reliable and the O line solid the deal would have been OK, but with the reality of the situation, this is a big ass gamble.

You didn't piss me off, and you were closer to calling the ultimate compensation than I were. You could have just said that and/or replied directly to me if that was your point.

I may have called you a douche anyway. But you would have saved some face.

Neither did the Colts with Manning. He made those players good. Look what happened when he got hurt. The team fell to $h!t. Just chill out a bit and see how this thing rides out....

Good one. RT @WhitlockJason: Source: David Stern plans to veto Redskins-Rams trade. Story is developing, check back later for details.

RGIII better be the real deal and not the second coming of Akili Smith or the Redskins are ****ed for a long, long, time.

Let me ask this question - assuming that the redskins really had a slim chance for manning, did Shanahan really have another option this year at qb- without getting fired?
