Which is my point. Could it come down maybe, maybe not. Most teams in the past have stuck to the chart. The Browns are trying to get more then the chart and we balked. The big question is will they lower their standards and be willing to take below the chart? or simply draft the player they wanted and move on.

This town needs a jump start bad. With the Capitals falling below their expected play, the Wizards having a horrid year, the Redskins season ending bad, and who knows what the Nats will do....

I'd take 1 SB again any day.

I sometimes wonder if some fans are more interested in team composition ("build thru the draft!", "we need linemen"!) than actually winning. If we bring in Manning with, as you said a rookie QB prospect early, sign a couple valuable free agents, draft Blackmon and keep all future picks, how is that a bad thing?

The only doomsday scenario I see with Manning is if we sign him, then don't draft a QB until like the 5th or 6th round or overdraft say an Osweiler in the third and he doesn't develop at all and we are starting over at QB in 2014 or so.

I agree with you...and I like your analogy since I am also a Celtics fan. When the Celts made that trade I said they need to win a title or this was a bad move. They did so it's all good. I feel the same way about signing Manning...they will need to win a SB in the next few years or it was a bad decision. I would rather make the trade for RG3 and hopefully open up a much longer title window...

It's all speculation, but I think the Redskins should pass on Manning. I understand he's the best free agent in NFL history, but this team has to draft their own. Unless they intend to draft a rookie quarterback like Tannehill, Foles, or Weeden to back up Manning, then signing Manning wouldn't make much sense. Grossman and Beck are not good enough to even be back ups. Jonathan Crompton might be another option at QB but we don't know much about him yet. So, maybe they can draft a QB and develop him.

I want RG3 but I don't think most people are saying signing Manning is a bad thing. Manning and RG3 is like selecting between a Filet and a NY Strip...I only take issue with those who suggest we have a hamburger instead...

Well I think it's a product of timing also. This afternoon Manning will be free game for anyone.

Doesn't make sense to sit and wait and then what happens, the Cardinals get get Manning, the Dolphins get Flynn, Browns agree to a deal with the Rams for RG3 and we get....Colt McCoy!!!!!

Seriously though, I don't know that one is 100% preferred over the other

I'm a bit confused by your post

Smoot,

Any chance that Manning signs with someone today?

I guess what he's trying to say is that the Redskins should draft RGIII, he just went the way of China to get to that point.
