Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Matt Leinart, did he sign a 1 or 2 year deal to stay in Houston?

Hankerson, was a good pick, but Shannahan still sat him on the bench and allowed his old guys like Stalworth and Gaffney get a majority of the snaps. Without getting a franchise QB were looking at more 6-10 seasons for years to come.

The Shannhans have done nothing to prove that can acquire, draft, or develop an elite QB. I'm tired of everyone making excuses for the Shannhans ineptitude. I'm actually more pissed that we didn't get Jake Locker last year, someone who we could of dealt for and landed. Now we're going to have to "settle" for whatever 2nd rate QB is out there since the Shannahans are incapable of getting a true franchise QB.
By your logic, almost every team settles then because, particularly early in the draft it's rare you get your top choice...unless you have the first overall pick

But whatever clearly you're not thinking totally straight as you're getting all worked up over one rumor (yet somehow ignoring rumors that have the Redskins trading up for RG3 and even others that have the Dolphins trading up for RG3, and others that have the Seahawks trading up for RG3)...so we'll chat again when you've calmed down

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I'm just lmao at the fans who think we have to get our franchise QB now and from the draft. and laughing at the others who think it's RGIII. Apparently there is no other QB out there worth anything other then RGIII. With out even playing a down in the NFL he's become "the guy". Superman.

I guess all the other QB's should just not even enter the draft cause clearly they are not worthy.

And I vehemently disagree since nothing he's done thus far has translated into more wins. Until he does I will continue to judge him by his record.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Let's wait and see how this all plays out. I keep going back and forth on this. Only thing that IS clear is the the Redskins need a franchise QB, but they also need to keep building the roster up. That secondary was very uninspiring to watch this season, and the Redskins need to continue building that offensive line into something that is solid and has depth.

Regardless as to what Shadowbyte said, Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan have brought in some great talent and they're building through the draft. It's a process. If we want a truly solid team - both offense and defense - it takes time. Even I get carried away when we talk about Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. Both are solid, smart QBs and I think both have great careers in the NFL. But, think about it. If our offensive line is solid, strong, and excellent in pass protection and run blocking, don't you think that's much better situation for a young QB to be in to grow and develop into a top notch QB rather than a team that still has obvious weaknesses? What about on defense? Wouldn't you love to see a true shutdown CB ala Darrell Green or Champ Bailey, and a solid defensive front which makes it impossible to run against? I want this team to have no deficiencies. Look what happened to the Packers. We all thought that team was headed to the Super Bowl. As good as they have looked this year, they obviously lacked something. The same COULD be said about the Patriots by the end of this coming weekend. And what will both have in common? Defenses give up way too many yards.

Goes to show you, if you want to build a champion, you have to play like one on both sides of the ball. Mike Shanahan is trying to build a champion, not just a team that will be good enough to make the playoffs but never get that far.

I think it would be highly unlikely we would throw a drafted QB in the fire from day one like Dalton and expect results. Are you talking about Jimmy Clausen again SS?

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Nothing like getting worked up over mock drafts and rumors in January.

C'mon peeps, get it together!

Not really talking about anyone specifically...but there is a "sleeper" I've mentioned a couple of times whose name has been getting some off the record mention lately. To clarify, I'm not sure next season even ends with a rookie QB starting...but there will be one on the roster

I'm telling you, these fans are getting so hyped up about trading up for RGIII that they are setting themselves up with a huge letdown if/when Shanny doesn't sell the farm for him. You will then see a wave of anger and Shanny bashing the likes that God hasn't even seen.

So you are telling me that this team is no better or worse than last year and the year before?!?

You have to have all the pieces before you can put the puzzle together. Otherwise you spend all that time flipping all the pieces right side up (drafting and FA), putting the boarders together (strengthening and developing mental and physical skills) only to find that your puzzle is incomplete and doesn't look right (can't win games).

We are in a better place than we were two years ago regardless of our record, and if you refuse to see that, then I don't know what to tell you.

And the bashing Shanahan will get if we do bet the farm on RG III and he winds up being a bust.

Yeah some definitely seem to be setting themselves up to be disappointed. Who knows what Shanny even thinks of RG3 or what his overall plan is for QB?

I for one wouldn't be disappointed if we sat back like last year and picked up extra picks. This team has plenty of holes to fill. A QB isn't going to solve everything overnight.

Cleveland has the extra picks to play with, a move up for them makes more sense than the Skins moving up.

It's a no win situation for him.
