Could have drafted Ponder, Mallet, or maybe even Dalton. Hasslebeck and Palmer were there. A nice deal for Palmer would not have been so bad, although I wouldn't do it if I was a GM. The going to two QBs was also a dumb move, due to the history of both Beck and Grossman. Clemens could have been the one to surprise us all and we let him go.

And was Clemens claimed by anyone or playing? There's a reason why he was cut, he sucked, he's as bad or worse than what the Redskins currently have. I seriously believe Shanahan has his eye on a QB coming out this year who he likes better than any from last years draft (at least that's what I want to believe).

Ponder might have worked out for us, but then we don't have Kerrigan, Hankerson, Hurt, and Gomes. Dalton was picked at #35 and has quite the rapport with AJ Green. I guess he would have been alright, but at #16? Ehhh, most people would think Shanahan had lost it with such a reach. Mallett probably could have been taken at #62, which isn't a big reach. But then again, Mallett has been unable to prove anything one way or the other, unlike Dalton and Ponder.

It's not like we got nothing when we passed up on one of the potential quarterbacks. Kerrigan, if he reaches his max potential, is a very valuable piece for a championship team in his own right since we have to handle opposing top tier QBs well. Of course we can't delay QB forever, but the compensation this time, seems pretty good.

This team looks dead, I have seen them this feeble and dead since Spurrier days and that's saying a lot give that our last coach was Zorn.
This is THE real issue, and there's only one real answer: a vacuum in leadership. This team isn't being coached, motivated, inspired. Period.

Hasselback is also a proven veteran that has guided the Seahawks to the playoffs a few times and went to one Super Bowl.

The Redskins could have signed Matt Hasselback. If Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen signed this guy instead of going along with the comic relief notion that John Beck and Rex Grossman could actually play QB good enough to have a winning record, the Redskins would be at the very least be 5-4 right now. By the way, the Tennessee Titans, the team that Hasselback currently plays for, is 5-4 and very much in the hunt for a AFC wild card birth.

Hasselbeck could have also mentored whoever the next QB would be whereas Rex and the Hobbit obviously aren't anybody you'd want mentoring a younger guy. Actually this is probably the biggest fail in regard to our QB situation...no mentor on the roster so in that regard we still need 2 QBs.

Grossman: "Triple coverage! Sling it! SLING IT LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SLUNG IT BEFORE!"

Beck: "The Book of Beck states that a checkdown pass to your RB is mandatory on third and long. When you've been preparing for as long as I have to be a starting qb these things come second nature."

Beck is more like this:

"Processing..........Processing..........Processin g..........Processing..........Processing......... .Processing..........Processing..........Processin g..........Processing..........Processing......... .Processing..........Processing..........Processin g..........Processing..........Processing......... ."
(program crashes)
(you restart the program)
"Loading..............Loading..............Loading ..............Loading..............Loading........ ......Loading..............Loading..............Lo ading..............Loading..............Loading... ...........Loading..............Loading........... ...Loading..............Loading..............Loadi ng.............."
(you then proceed to violent things to the computer and destroy the software cd)

NFL Standings: League

Looking at the standings right now and remaining schedules I do think we'll end up with the 2nd or 3rd overall pick, which to a degree sucks because two team(s) picking ahead of us i.e. Colts and possibly Dolphins will draft Luck.

You want a oft injured mid thirty year old QB behind the OL we currently have?...lol Right now, he's behind a solid offensive line and Chris Johnson in the back field. Notice he wasn't doing diddly squat in Seattle.


Palmer? Are you kidding me? I'm not even going to really address this because it is so ludicrous.


Ponder? Was considered a HUGE reach by the Vikings. Mallet? You serious? Dalton? Picked ahead of us in the 2nd round, and wasn't worthy of a high first round slot based on his evaluation.



So again, what QBs from the magical tree should Shanny have plucked from without mortgaging the future (again) and going for a huge reach just because they are a QB?
