Or maybe we just stay and 6th and reach for a guy like Tannehill... It's going to be a quite a ride.
If the plan is to stay at #6 and pick RG3 or Tannehill I can live with it since at least Tannehill is likely to be there.

Yep, and the Rams will take Blackmon. Our only chance of landing any of those players(RG3/Luck) is to give up draft picks. I say we roll the dice with Flynn and retain our draft picks.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

It boils down to whether or not the Browns take Trent Richardson and move on with Colt McCoy and I think they will.

Thats the only area where we are different. and I don't think MS will trade because of it being too costly. But no one ever knows what will happen.

Personally I think they will go hard for a Vet in FA and if they haven't had to give up their 1st or 2nd round draft pick they might still try to trade up, but the trade up depends on at what cost. I also think depending on who they get as a Vet might depend on whether they think it's worth holding off until the 2nd round to take a QB or if they should look into trading up.

It only makes sense. If you get a really good Vet then you can pick up a later round QB and develope him. There will be a need to fill the Vet spot Beck leaves. and what do they do with Grossman? if he leaves or the team does not retain him then there will be another spot to fill. If the team doesn't get a quality QB in FA then they should go after RGIII.
It's going to be interesting come free agency time. I mean, everybody seems to be pointing at Matt Flynn as being the best free agent QB, and he might very well be. I'm just not sure exactly what that truly means though. He's had two outstanding games, but only two games! Dan Orlovsky, in relief of Curtis Painter, actually put up decent numbers and had a decent QB rating. His worst QB rating, 53.4% came against the Ravens defense. But, nobody is really talking about him. I haven't really watched him play, so I don't know if he'd really fit the mold for Shanahan's offense or not.

I just really think either way, the Redskins are almost forced to give up quite a bit for what most consider the best free agent QB this year, or to move up in the draft to get RG III or even Luck. Either way, I think we can agree that there is pressure on Mike Shanahan to bring in another starting quarterback for the Redskins this year. I'd rather the 'skins trade up if the Redskins feel they can make St. Louis an offer they can't refuse (saying that in my best Robert DeNiro voice.)

Me too. I'm hoping that this is our plan. If so, we should come home from day 1 of the draft with a quality new QB.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I'll make this prediction though (and I truly have to go and workout now...) I think no matter how next season turns out, if Mike Shanahan drafts Robert Griffin III, Shanahan keeps his job throughout the end of his contract - even if the 'skins go through another losing season. IF Shanahan grabs Flynn in free agency, flynn doesn't live up to the hype and the 'skins have another sub .500 season - that could very well spell the end of Mike Shanahan. I just don't think Shanahan can afford to swing and miss this time with his quarterback. And unfortunately for him, I don't think Mike can wait another year for Barkley or Jones. Seems like everybody feels RG III is can't lose situation, I think it's going to be a tough call.

This, of course, is assuming it's an either or situation. I'm not sure how realistic it would be for the Redskins to both grab Matt Flynn AND draft RG III. I say there's no way both happens.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I'd be happy with Tannehill.
His fiancee aint too shabby either.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

After careful consideration, I think I want Kyle Orton. Running to a meeting. Will explain more when I return

i like orton's game a lot. he has really grown since his rookie season, and i think he could be a good fit for us. that said, if we were to get him, i still think we should draft a qb to groom for the future since orton will be 30 next year i believe.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

How different is the Offensive scheme that Orton is in now compared to the Kyle Shanahan 'Popular-with-the-players-so-it-must-be-great' plan?

Yeah, I'm too lazy to Google it....

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I was on the Orton bandwagon as well. He would be a good vet to have until a rook is ready to play. And let's not even start with this silliness that he's no better than Grossman. He's been much better over his career at taking care of the ball. 80-57 TD to INT vs 56 TD to 60 INT for Rex.
