BTW there may be a player in this year's draft that could be the next Matt Schaub or insert late round draft pick who is now a hot RFA and FA this year.

Re: QB Combo Possibilities: Which Do You Want (QB Rumors: Verse 10)

I voted for the RG III Grossman choice since it is the only one that made any sense. I think giving up the bathtub and kitchen sink for RG III is a huge mistake, as we very well will have more holes to plug going into the draft as we currently have. We tagged Davis, but can lose Fletch, etc. Losing Fletch would be a big blow to the D and would mean either a FA LB or a draft a MLB. We really need 2 LBs to shore that corp up to be honest. We need the picks to rebuild, unless you RG III freaks want to have a few more lousy seasons. The kid is talented, but like Cam, without a decent supporting cast, he isn't going to win anything. Manning had his supporting cast stacked for ages. Also, do you think RG III is going to have half a chance with our O line? He will be running alright, running all the time and getting whacked good over the course of a 16 game season, if he survives it. Don't get me wrong I would love to get RG III, but damn multiple high round picks? C'mon now guys. Our starting O line consists of second stringers posing as starters. Our Dbs are substandard anymore and two of our wideouts are turning into candidates for the geriatric ward. Continue to upgrade the oline and the DBbs. I would utilize both the draft and FA to do this. I just think we could use a youth infusion still.

I totally agree with you Art. I don't think RG III is going down. I think Bruce Allen is helping out his friend in Saint Louis by raising the stakes. Of all the scenarios I hear the best one thus far is us trading DOWN for the 20th pick to get Weeden or maybe Tannehill and get an extra pick. RG III is the "sexy" pick, but our O line still is substandard compared to most of the league. IF RG III starts behind this bunch of bums he won't last 2 seasons without getting hurt.

Whether L'il Shanny can do that is an interesting question.
I would seem to think that MS and KS would know how to work with Peyton. KS had to watch Manning beat his Texans plenty of times to respect what he does on the football field, if you think about it PM has been calling plays in the NFL longer then KS has.

Going all the way down to 20 should net us a couple of picks. 1st and 2nd this year and a third next.

If we do sign Manning why draft Weeden? So Manning can play 3 years and Weeden can be essentially a 31 year old rookie? Yeah I'll pass on Weeden there.

BTW if we sign Manning do you all think we will win the Super Bowl in year one or two? If not, why sign him? C'mon Free Agency.

No.

Its not that they don't want to its that no team wants to do it so soon. I just never see it happening in the NFL where one team just gives up their first round pick for some other teams first right before the draft.

Re: QB Combo Possibilities: Which Do You Want (QB Rumors: Verse 10)

After watching various draft related episodes of Top 10 on NFL Network I've come to the realization that essentially we know nothing. You could have a situation like Tony Dorsett where none of the draft picks you gave up are worth nearly as much as him. You could have a Ricky Williams type of deal happen where you give up your entire draft for a single player yet the team you traded with (Redskins) does nothing worthwhile with those picks. You could also end up with Jeff George, a complete bust. Or you could end up with Mike Vick going to one team and LaDanian Tomlinson going to another.

In the end I think we'd be crazy not to give up a reasonable amount to get RGIII. Who knows when we'll be within striking distance of such a talent at QB again.

Or it could be a Hershel Walker situation where Dallas took all those picks and won 3 Super Bowls.

I think we should get comfortable with the idea of Manning going to the Cards or Fins and RGIII going to Cleveland. Both are way more realistic than either coming here.

Those who say we should just "go out" and sign Manning forget it's not up to us, it's up to Manning. Miami and Arizona are better situations.

Maybe we make a run at Flynn or Orton and trade back for Tannehill, Weeden or Cousins. Have another solid draft and round of free agency and continue to build.

And you know this how?? According to you we don't have a chance at RG3. Peyton wouldn't come here, because the Redskins suck, and on, and on... I guess next you will tell us we are trading away all of our draft picks to the Giants for no compensation..

I so wish I could block certain people from this site. I am now heading to the Giants forum to post nonsense, because I have nothing better to do..

Our O-line was terrible? When did that happen? Because I didnt see Rex get hurt once all season and both our rookie RBs had 100 yard rushing games without 2 of our best O linemen. If RGIII is more brittle than Rex then I don't want him no matter what O line is playing in front of him.

But you still didn't respond to my point. If we do the Peyton Manning route this year in a few years time we are still looking for a franchise QB. It is likely in order to get that franchise QB we will have to deal picks in the future to move up high enough in the draft to get one, so what is the difference between rolling the dice this year and waiting 2 or 3 years to do it? I understand you have more picks for the draft this year but you are just delaying the inevitable. And there may not be a guy worth trading up for in a draft a few years in the future. What then? Settle for an average FA or late round draft pick? My point is if the coaches feel like RG3 is worth it, then you go after him. You don't know what things are going to look like 3 years down the road.

With your second point I agree that there could be a player in the draft that could be a diamond in the rough. But looking at the law of averages, who is going to be more likely to pan out, a top 10 QB prospect or a 6th round no name? Tom Bradys' aren't exactly falling out of the sky on the regular.
