Im not too high on WRs they can come out of anywhere, most of the great wrs of all time played at unknown schools.. Jerry rice, Moss, TO etc.. I know Marshall is relevant but not really

Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

Right now we are all like kids before Christmas. We all want to see the presents before the big day, all these rumors are like us searching in our parents closet for them.

Everyday I flip flop on who I would like them to get as a QB and what they should do in the draft.

So what do you suggest the Redskins do at QB until draft day if RG3 is who they really want? Do they do nothing and hope to win this stare down with the Rams? Do they blow 20 mil of this years cap room on Manning when they really want RG3? As of now John Beck is their only QB on the roster. Maybe making the trade now costs an extra pick or two but it also saves a bunch of wasted cap dollars on unneeded contingency plans...

Again, I have been tuning into the Warpath for about a decade. This is my second post. This is a classic quote.

Man...

I am more excited this offseason than I have been...in about a decade.

I agree, at least since Gibbs made his return. I think the excitement is do to the possibility to acquire a QB with talent we havent had in a long long time. Whether its Manning, RG3 or Luck, I feel the time is now to land one of them and the possibility to do so is real.

Right now it feels as such, I just hope its not one of those Christmases when you really wanted the new Optimus Prime Transformer but ended up getting a couple of Go-Bots.

Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

I would prefer to see RG3I over Manning at this point. I want youth and someone who can be there for the long haul. Drafts are still a crap shoot but I like what RG3 brings to the table, he is talented and poised you definitely have to have that in DC. We have not had a true franchise QB in 15 years.

The thing about getting Griffin even at the 1st, 2nd, 3rd price propsed is it ironically offers the franchise a ton of flexibility.

Aside from finally getting a franchise QB it gives Shanahan the QB he needs to be successful on offense it also gives the team a safety net if Shanahan fails as a coach and needs to be replaced.

I mean can you guys imagine having to scrap the entire offense AGAIN? We've spent all this time looking for zone blocking lineman and one cut backs, to have to go back and replace them while looking for a QB at the same time, safe to say it would be a disaster.

What I learned from Michael Vick in Atlanta (ie having an insanely athletic QB) is even if he sucks at playing QB you'll still win games. I just can't imagine a situation where RGIII fails to help us win games outside of medical reasons.

Being a redskins fan we are used to these type of christmases, we all have high hopes and then end up with coal. We have drafted QB's before in the 1st round and never left them develop, either too quick to plug on them for the old vet or we switch the o-coordinator. I just hope if we get a young QB he is groomed and given a chance to develop.

Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

At this point the NFL is a QB League and you have to do what is needed to get ur guy. We are more likely to find another Orakpo than an RGIII or Peyton Manning. This year we have our chance to get legit player at the QB Position, we need to take. No more set backs. No more chances on non elite talent at the QB position, it is too important.
