A few people on this site notwithstanding, I haven't heard anyone say anything bad about this move. The more I think about it and get used to it, the more it seems like a no-brainer.

When King starts praising a move the Redskins made you know it's probably a good one.

People like to think all these writers hate the Redskins (but if you go onto any forum everyone says the same thing) but Peter King earlier on Sirius NFL radio called Redskins fans some of the most intelligent football fans around.

I'm thrilled with this trade. Just keeping my fingers crossed that everyone else stays healthy... F... INJURIES.

Peter King usually throws us under the bus, but everyone from Mort, Clayton, to King, and Mike Wise seem to think this was a great move for us. Especially if Taylor plays 2 or 3 years for us getting while notching double digit sack totals...

I think he's been a great addition to that show. Whoever keeps Carl Banks off the air is fine by me!

I remember when King said Danny Weurfel was going to be the next Kurt Warner. His opinions don't mean much to me.

I heard that this morning. Great segment, talking about RFK shaking and how intimidating it was to players to actually feel the ground moving. Said FedEx is still a pretty darn intimidating place to play because of the fans, even if the architecture isn't quite as nerve racking.

Called the Redskin fans some of the best around, and lost many an argument about Monk not being in the hall of fame to them before eventually changing his mind.

BTW...Monk WAS in the hall of fame. I saw him there, wearing a JETS jersey for holding the record for most NFL receptions. So those who say he doesn't belong in the hall are already wrong...he's been there, done that. A Jets jersey, can you believe it? Ugh......thankfully that'll be fixed.

It actually makes me nervous when this guy likes us. But look, Art is going to the Hall, so maybe he's turned warm and fuzzy on us?

About the trade: We needed help at DE and got the best one available. We gave up a good pick, but you don't get quality without giving something up--this isn't Madden. It's not a perfect world--things can always go wrong. But the idea that the FO is now "back to it's old ways" is just silly: this was need driven, and not some targeted FA extravaganza.

I don't get this. These guys are paid to give their opinion. It's not as if they have some magic 8ball to look into to get correct answers. That's why we watch ESPN, there are plenty of arguments we agree with and many that we don't. Thats the fun about sports is looking at what others think. You can't discredit someone because a prediction they made was wrong. It's a prediction for entertainment, and he takes an educated guess and backs up his points with why he think it will happen.

This is probably the most worth-while article I've seen from King in a while.....or at least the first one I've agreed with in a while.

If you rule everyone out because they did not get it right on a player in the NFL you just wiped out everyone.

he probably likes it cause it's a good move.

and again, just to be clear, jason taylor is a 98 madden, and that's what matters.
