Redskins Have Not Had Success On Drafting Quarterbacks

Since the end of the regular season we have had many topics and debates over who the Redskins should draft or sign at the quarterback position. I looked back in history of the Redskins organization on drafting quarterbacks and we have drafted such players like Sammy Baugh, Eddie LeBaron, Norm Snead, and Jay Schroeder. Yes I said Jay Schroeder. Look I hate to break the news to some of you but we did not draft Billy Kilmer, Sonny, or Joe Theismann. They were either free agents or part of player trades to aquire them. Even the great Joe Gibbs did not draft Doug Williams he signed him as a free agent. If you want to know who we actually drafted to be our franchise quarterback over the years well lets start here with the following:

1.Mark Rypien drafted 1986 Rd 6 (played 1986-1994) Super Bowl MVP

2.Stan Humphries drafted 1988 Rd 6 (played 1989-1991) Traded to Chargers played in Super Bowl XXIX

3.Cary Conklin drafted 1990 Rd 4 (played 1990-1993) Bum

4.Gus Frerotte drafted Rd 7 ( played 1994-1998) Journeyman

5.Heath Shuler drafted Rd 1 pk 3 ( played 1994-1996) Bust

6.Patrick Ramsey drafted Rd 1 pk 32 (played 2002-2005) Back Up QB

7.Jason Campbell drafted Rd 1 pk 25 (played 2005-2009) Started for Raiders until injuries

We also had some others who were drafted in the later rounds such as Colt Brennan and Sage Rosenfels.

I would love for us to draft RGIII in the 1st Rd but Redskins history has shown that we do not know how to evaluate franchise quarterbacks in DC. So what do we do ? We sign free agents quarterbacks that other teams did not want like the following ( Jeff George,Tim Hasslebeck, John Beck, Danny Wuerffel, Tony Banks, Donovan McNabb). How can Redskins fans blame Shanny for our quarterback problems when this has been a issue for over 30 years folks. We should have such luck to draft a Peyton Manning or Brett Farve who can be the face of the franchise for the next 10-12 years. People we don't have history on our side when it comes to this positon so why shiould it change this years draft. Do we take a flyer on a older unhealthy Peyton Manning or a young raw talent who we may have to drop two 1st rd picks and a 2nd or 3rd pick. I hate to make this call and be wrong because our fans cannot go another 5-7 years without a franchise QB. Im just putting some facts out their what do you think? HTTR

Joe Theisman & Sammy Baugh!

Unless you believe in curses, all that matters is how this current regime drafts.

Joe Theisman was not drafted but Sammy Baugh was drafted Rd 1 Pk 6 in 1937. Ok he played for the Redskins from 1937-1952. Ok so how long ago was that regime?

Re: Redskins Have Not Had Success On Drafting Quarterbacks

FYI- Joe Gibbs was the OC in Tampa when the Bucs drafted Doug Williams. In fact, he went to personally scout him at Grambling and made the push to get him.

By bad for typo....automatic spell check correction on DROID.

Re: Redskins Have Not Had Success On Drafting Quarterbacks

we break the trend this year. I really dont think we have drafted enough QBs. Im of the mindset you should spend a draft pic on a QB at least every other year.

Re: Redskins Have Not Had Success On Drafting Quarterbacks

The past is irrelevant. Can't worry about past failures, all that matters is hitting on one in this draft.

you're right, was actually drafted by Miami but never signed & went to CFL. Sammy Baugh was the 6th pick! That's a sign we shouldn't trade out of that spot.

Re: Redskins Have Not Had Success On Drafting Quarterbacks

New history is made every day. Our past history drafting qb's has absolutely nothing to do with how our coaches, today, will evaluate how to proceed at qb in this upcoming season.

Completely agree! What does 20 years ago have to do with how this coaching administration evaluates talent?
