Let's hope it's not 02,03,06 or 07 all over again! Manning bros are only QBs taken in the first 2 picks to win the Super Bowl over the last 12 years.

No one is going to confuse Mark Brunell with Peyton Manning.
2004 was by far the exception, not the rule.

One thing I like to point out about RGIII is his ability to move in the pocket. Part of me thinks that the comparisons to Vick may have been off. Yes they have similar measureables but the playing style is completely different. Heck with the way I've seen Griffin move around the pocket he reminds me more of Rodgers then anyone else.

Personally I'm just facisinated by his pocket presence. The way he moves and eludes the rush while keeping his eyes down field is exactly the type of thing a team that struggles to put lines together needs.

I mean watch how often defenders close in on him and how well he moves to not only get away from them but set up the deep throws.


Now compare that to Cousins and Weeden.

Weeden who admitingly does a nice job against the rush but he's able to avoid sacks because of his quick release while going for the shorter quicker routes. RG3 on the other hand is eluding the rush, giving his guys time to get downfield, and then completing 20+ yard passes.

I can't look at past history and give you a compelling reason to believe that said team will be the Redskins.

Everything I've heard about Tannehill suggest he's either going in the top 10 or the second round. There doesn't seem to be much of a middle ground in terms of projecting where he'll go.

From hear on in I'm putting bounties on big hits against anyone that doesn't support RG3. Double cash if that same person tries to sell you on next years class over this years.

Since it is the offseason, Matty should put bounties on people that start pointless/repetitive threads.

Everyone here will tell you I'm a huge Weeden fan also. I'm just showing there are others who believe that Tannehill might be better in our system then RGIII. Namely because (I think) he played in a pro style of offense in college instead of the spread. Lindy's Sports Draft Mag compares him to Mark Sanchez, probably the closest comparison they could find. I did find it funny they compared Osweiler to Matt Schaub.

Ok, blast me brother. I thought I read somewhere that MS really wanted Barkley whom we could simply continue to fix up the offensive side of the ball then go all in next year with 2 yrs worth of drafts if you all want to.

I still maintain that you are going to have to hit big on an awful lot of picks to even think of equaling the impact of a strong, smart, and mobile QB like RGIII.

I mean think about it. Could we ever have a shot of trading Orakpo, Helu, Royster, Kerrigan, Williams, Landry, Jenkins, Thomas, Rogers, Campbell, and Kelly for Cam Newton?

By the way thats 6 first round picks, 3 second round picks, a fourth, and a sixth round pick. And of those 6 first round picks 3 were top 10 picks.

Nope. No different then how hard it would be to trade them for someone like Brady and he was a 6th round draft pick.

I like to look at the bright side.... the other 5 picks were not top 10 and they are starting also. Apparently the Skins got really good value for them to be after the top 10 and be starters.

I like to think if the team gets the right player with the most skills they are looking for at whatever position they will work out. RGIII might be the 2nd best QB in this yrs draft but someone like Tannehill might be better suited for what we do simply because his learning curve might be smaller. Yes he might need to work on his skills but if he was in a pro system in college I feel he might learn quicker and be more usefull right out of college. < hopefully I said that right. lol.
