True they have nothing to gain by throwing. Newton surprised everybody last year when he threw. If your a top 2 qb going in, there is no way you should throw at the meat market, only at your pro day when you have some control over the situation. By the way Tannehill is not the qb that the skins should try to get especially at the 6 spot. He was mediocre at best this year, and was probably better due to his supporting cast then his own ability. If they don't get either Luck or Griffin wait for the second round, Weeden is probably the safest pick among the "clipboard holders". They'll be back in the mix for a qb next year if they don't trade up, probably with a new coach picking the next qb. Hopefuly not a USC qb-they never work.

I think he's one of the journeyman/second chance QBs that has the potential of becoming a good starting QB in the NFL.

I would be happy with an offseason QB overhall that would result with:

Manning + Henne + 4th round or later developmental QB
I'm sorry, I hear people mention Orton and I think Grossman, people are now mentioning Henne and I think Beck.

New #Rams head coach Jeff Fisher:"We have a lot of options and we're going to be prepared." Said trading Sam Bradford is NOT an option.

Stings a bit...Looks like my last shred of hope for Bradford is gone.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Fisher has said all along one of the main reasons for taking that job was Bradford. He's going to build around him.

Yea I hear you but I was still clinging. Maybe I just missed it but I heard that stuff mentioned by others but not actually straight from his mouth until today.

There is zero to gain at all for a top-level QB to throw. The only thing it could do is diminish their prospects. I mean they're top-level because everyone has seen them play and knows what they are capable of. They can't be "hiding" anything because they just finished a college football season where they showed how awesome they are. What happens when they go to the combine and tweak an oblique and can't get the ball down the field? I mean they can't possibly show anything physically to further their prospects. There is nothing to be gained. They do go to Indy to talk and interview as Matty said because that is the stuff that watching them play doesn't show.

That would be awesome. Too early to put all our eggs (hopes) into that basket just yet though...

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

Excellent article. I loved this quote:

Also highlights a key difference between the Redskins of old and the Redskins of today. Even in this day and age, agents will use the Redskins' name to drum up bidding wars for their players as a result of our past history. But the reality is Shanny/Allen will take the explore all options/leave the bidding war route instead of getting caught up in the hype of a player as in years' past.

To sum up, it's nice to know we have competent execs in charge.

It would be significant step in the right directions for our hopes of trading up, but this early in the game, especially with it just being initial rumors, it could be a Paul Pierce pump fake so don't leave your feet just yet...

Disappointing fo' sho but a closed door opens another one. Meaning even though we can't have Bradford, it's almost 100% guaranteed the Rams would be willing to trade down. And even if we don't trade up with them, we can still go to the Browns at 3 if RG3 is available.
