If the deal to trade up to the second pick gets done early, is there any chance the front office may try to use the second pick to trade up to the first pick to land Luck?
About a month ago, it was a pretty serious possibility. But Colts appear 100% committed to Luck

Yeah, again my only real concern with Orton is that (from various people I've spoken to) he's kind of a dick and may not be the best locker room presence for a young like Tannehill. Grossman's just the opposite

Same as what Lotus said.
I wouldnt be opposed to Griffin/rookie drafted in the 4th round.

Orton/Tannehill would be ok too.

I LOVE the RG3 option.....would also be pleased with Manning/Cousins as a fall back.

Yeah I remember hearing he's "moody".

Oh well, I'd rather have that over Grossman and his 2 INTs a game.

Tannehill seems like a pretty good kid, I'm sure he can handle himself.

I dont mind 1, 2 or 3 but I am still have a lot of concerns with trading a bunch of picks for a college style QB. I would'nt mind a Rex-Tannehill combo either.

I think I agree with that but I also think it can't get to plan C. Plan C= Pitchforks & Torches out front of Redskins Park.

This fan base is so geared up for RG3 or Manning that to give them Orton would create a Jim Fassel backlash x 2.

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

I went #1 obviously but it's interesting that none of the combos are exactly 100% pleasing. If you want RG3 then your taking Grossman and if you want Manning then you can't have Tannehill. Makes it a little more thought provoking though. At the end of the day i would suit up someone from this board as the backup in order to get RG3.

Nice thread SS. Interesting poll results. I guess we know where the Warpath stands.

IMO options 4 and 5 are off the table, mainly cuz Skins nation would revolt. Just imagine the Warpath...

The only options that can be confidently sold to this fanbase are 1 and 3. They can probably get away with option 2 for the short term but it's very thin ice. If Tannehill doesn't evolve quickly it could get ugly.

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

I went Manning/Cousins only because the speculated asking price to get RG3 is too high IMO.

If we can get a decent CB(bye, bye D. Hall), a great WR, RT, G, S in FA then pull the trigger otherwise we have a lot of needs.

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

I probably will get burned for this but I think I would prefer Rexy/Tannehill combo. As much as I hate Rexy's turnovers - I am pretty sure that Rexy would be willing to mentor Tannehill. I would love it if Tannehill learns Rexy's mentality except for the turnover part. Rexy have tough mentality - he doesn't let anyone gets in his head regardless of numerous turnovers. That is exactly what we need in Redskins QB, given high expectations from everyone and media. Based on SS's comment about Orton, I am not sure if it is good idea to bring Orton in to mentor Tannehill. I'm not saying that Redskins would need to baby Tannehill, I just do not see how Orton will give Tannehill positive insights if he is not friendly.
