Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

So does everyone agree that when free agency begins and say we pick up either manning if hes cut, or flynn, or hoyer that we we will not try and trade up for RG3 and only take him if he falls to 6 or do you think we would try and do both?

P.S. that sucks, i like Jaws in the booth

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

i have no idea what kind of contract flynn is going to command. if the redskins signed him for less than $7M/year and rg3 fell to us at 6, i'd be happy to have both. that will not happen

Same. the only way I think we would do both is if RG3 fell to 6 and we had already picked a QB up in FA. I have a feeling he could possibly fall to us, im not so sure anyone is willing to trade up at such a high price and im not so sure the browns are sold on him at 4. But until then i guess i will hope we dont sign a big qb FA i just want rg3

Ok, so.... where are we after we draft RGIII and he turns out to be no better then Grossman? makes wrong reads, makes bad throws, makes bad decisions and we win no more games then we did last yr or do worse?

I don't agree, because I've been saying it all along. Yes "if" PM was healthy then I'd side with you on this issue, but I seriously wonder how ready PM will be come season start. I think the team would evaluate him around April 25 to see if his progress is better or stagnant and then decide if they still should trade up or not. If PM was showing a lot of progress then I'd say they might skip RGIII and simply wait and see what is available at #6 to put around PM or Rookie or possibly trade back for more picks.

I'd take this and a bag of chips, but I don't see RGIII falling past the Browns. I think I'm the only one here who believes the Rams are probably looking at taking him and dishing Bradford.

I would say that RGIII is a much better pro prospect than Grossman was coming out of college. RGIII has potential/athletic ability far above and beyond anything Grossman ever showed. IMO

The only way I don't see the Skins going after a FA QB is if they keep Grossman or Beck. :vomit: At this point I'm ready to take "almost" anyone over Grossman and Beck. Note my "almost"... I don't see Orton as being any better. Heck he couldn't beat Grossman out in Chicago.

and I'm not at all argueing that. I'm just wondering why everyone simply expects RGIII to come out and play like Eli Manning when he has not even played against top tier NFL talent. I'm just wondering what plan B is if he comes out and plays like ... IDK, I'd say Vince Young but some of you are high on him as well for whatever reason. Lets just say he throws 2 INTs a game and makes bad decisions?

See, I'm planning for worse case scenario hoping for best case. I think some fans here or atleast it sounds like it see RGIII being the problem solver and there is no need for plan B. I'd rather not had given up 3-4 picks to get RGIII and he fail then to keep my draft picks and turn them into 3-4 picks with a plan A and a plan B in place.

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

you have to take a risk sometimes to get a reward, i see what your saying and that would be great if rg3 fell to 6 but idk if that will happen. I think its time we get our qb of the future and i think it could be him but thats just me, i really really dont want another year of sub par qb play. The only options I like is picking up manning if hes fully healthy and rg3, but both of these are risks, but what choice isnt you have to take a risk at some point and hope it pays off

I have said in numerous posts that I would rather have manning(healthy), a top flight WR, a back up QB and maybe a ILB (Te'o?) next year than Griffin this year(The three picks we would have to give up being those players). I just think it makes us a better team. However if we cant get that then I want Griffin. I am so tired of routing for a team with no real QB

Re: Peyton Manning or RGIII your choice

More bad news surfaces for Peyton:

Manning underwent unknown surgery last year | ProFootballTalk

More surgery expected: Manning’s neck has potentially developed bone spurs. The Colts believe further surgery is “nearly inevitable,” even if Manning can successfully return to football this year.
