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.

Would hate to see Orakpo leave.

What we need to happen is this


Miami signs Manning
Drafts Tannehill

Cleveland signs Matt Flynn

The price for RG3 becomes a lot cheaper. And our chances of keeping orakpo become better.

That is one of the best quotes I have seen in a long damn time! Thanks for the laugh!

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.

Heres what I don't get. Why would the Rams want Orakpo? They have Quinn and Long. Are we trading him to another team to get their first rounder? If so what team?
Maybe Rak doesn't end up with the Redskins...or the Rams

Well that's the million dollar question, who mike thinks is his franchise QB? It all depends one his evaluation of them.

Agh... When will you be able to tell us the rumor already?

Rak to the colts (plus picks) in an attempt to acquire the first overall? Or Rak to some random pass rush needy team in an effort to recoup some picks after trading up for griffin? Those are my guesses.

The latter, and not a team you'd expect
