Re: I See QB Rumors (2012 QB Thread: The Sixth Sense)

The only concern I have about the search for a QB is that Mike Shanahan might feel too much pressure to get his QB for the next ten years in place this offseason. When MS was hired, he purportedly told Dan Snyder not to hire him if DS wasn't willing to give him five years to resurrect the Redskins on the field. With that in mind, I'm hoping that MS feels secure enough in his job to walk away from any bad deals for a QB.

Yes, we need a top QB. We also need other playmakers and more quality OLs and DBs. I like the idea that the Skins will leave no stone unturned in trying to find their Franchise QB. I hope they find him soon. Nevertheless, if the Skins should become concerned that what they would need to pay to get Luck or RGIII is likely to set back their rebuilding efforts, I hope MS has the courage to go to Plan B.

Re: I See QB Rumors (2012 QB Thread: The Sixth Sense)

I would not trade Orakpo. I would switch back to a 4-3 defense (which Shanahan most likely never do). I like to idea of OT in the 1'st QB in the 2'nd (if we don't sign a free agent).

I think Shanahan gets the boot next year if the Redskins record does not improve...

I heard the interview. Kyle likes Rex as a person and was not going to crush him on the radio. The questions were all about the problems at QB and Kyle was just tying to deflect some of it and not blame it all on Rex.

How long until this thread intertwines with all the other threads of us getting RG3, Luck, Peyton being cut, we should draft ___, etc. etc. I'm already feeling another 45+ pager...

I was surprised at how critical he was of Rex. Somewhat refreshing. I came away from the interview feeling a lot better about Kyle Shanahan.

My favorite quote - "He kept both teams in most games."

He'll still be here even if he matches the record from last year. He's not going anywhere much like he wasn't going to fire Joe Gibbs either before his time. That said, we won't be having that type of record next year so it's a moot point. This team is getting better.

I would stay the course with our current coaches and schemes. Get a QB to build around and grow into a perennial contender from there.

And actually I wouldn't be stunned if he fell to 6 and we traded down.

Shanahan better invest in bullet proof vest or body guards if he does.


You talk about server shutdown(especially the idiots over on ES). I think that might do it even if the other trades you talked about didn't go through. Passing on RGIII at the #6. I would be laughing my ass off personally at the meltdown.

If we pass on Griffin at #6 then Mike Shanahan is officially a freakin moron.

Re: I See QB Rumors (2012 QB Thread: The Sixth Sense)

I think it's funny that a few months ago, it was "we're going to draft Andrew Luck" from Irsay.

Now he's saying, we planned to take Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III, even if Manning was healthy, per PFT.

Not if he doesn't rate him high or he doesn't think he'll fit his system.

Re: I See QB Rumors (2012 QB Thread: The Sixth Sense)

I have been "tuning in" to the Warpath for nearly 10+ years though not posting. This marks my first post.

I'm pretty excited about the prospect of picking up Bradford.

...I recall that Snyder was really keen on Bradford his draft year, and that the Skins brought him in to work him out...but as I recall he was simply ...out of reach.

Anybody else seem to remember how keen Snyder seemed to be about Bradford?

How is a "freakin" moron different from other types of morons?

Re: I See QB Rumors (2012 QB Thread: The Sixth Sense)

To get the rumor mill rolling again, I heard Bob Kravitz of The Indianapolis Star(the guy who did the Peyton Manning interview where he revealed he was unhappy w/ the Colts and paved the way for his release) on the Lebatard Show, and Kravitz gave the Skins a 25% chance of signing Peyton once he's released. He said DC was intriguing to Peyton because he remembers what Shanahan was able to with Elway late in his career, and of course, Peyton wants to go out on top with one last Super Bowl victory. Kravitz said there was an equal chance for us, the Cardinals, the Seahawks, and the Dolphins to land Peyton.
