Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

SS, given that FA is coming up soon, are you going to release a semi-comprehensive list of targets we are going to be actively pursuing? (probably better for another thread but I've already started typing)

Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

I agree Matty.

In fact I've gotten to the point where I just tune out or flat out ignore people that still say shit like, "Danny Boy" or compare the current front office to the any of the previous ones. Whether the Redskins overpay for RGIII, in our opinion, or get him for a decent value, I'm pretty sure it will be a well thought out decision and will make sense for the long-term success of the organization.

Bruce and Shanny are well aware of the other pressing needs facing this team and will stick to the overall framework to get us there, even if it means moving around some current pieces to recoup picks we lost acquiring RG.

Hadn't planned on it. I mean I've kind of mentioned most of the names I've heard so far. But I suppose I could

I thought you did one last season or did you just comb through JLC's list and make comments (in conjunction with the names you dropped throughout the lockout period)?

If you don't then perhaps I can ask Chico to dream one up this evening lol.

It is kind of funny how people expect certain things from SS as though it is his primary job to fill us in on Redskins news.

Cousins looked legit at the combine, his passes seemed to have a lot more velocity than other QBs he was throwing with, with accuracy to match.

I'm certainly not qualified to do it.

I don't think so.

I think Dirtbag might have done a "What Potential Draft Picks Have We Met With" that I assisted on.

Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

Mike Wise is pissing in our koolaid...

Robert Griffin III has Redskins, fans heading for a relapse - The Washington Post

I agree that maybe we are overhyping RG3 too much but come on. This line bugged me:

"Why not build up the offensive line, the receiving corps or find a shutdown corner and then go all-in for Barkley next year? He was thought to be a higher pick than RG III, after all, before he decided to return to Southern Cal."

You can make this argument every year! When do we finally get a QB????

I never heard Barkley ever being rated higher then RG3.

Agreed. I don't mind getting Manning but getting him should not sidetrack us from also getting a stud developmental prospect for the long term. And to me Cousins is not a stud but rather is an NFL backup at best.

The big problem I see, is we would be out of position to grab Barkley. The guy is mostly likely gonna go #1 and if we're in the mid teens for our pick, imagine the ammo we would need to move up. I think at 6 this year we're in a perfect position to grab an elite QB at near the top.

Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

Redskins have never been interested in Barkley anyway

RG3
Tannehill
Cousins

That appears to be the top 3 right now in order of rookie preference

I disagree with Wise for several reasons, most notably because his logic is self-defeating. If we build as he suggests then we perhaps draft in the teens next year. Then it will be much farther to trade up for Jones and Barkley than it is to trade up for Griffin now.

It's like waiting to buy a house because it is expensive now even though you know that the house's price will rise dramatically while you wait.
