Re: RG III Should Scramble Away From D.C.

I haven't nor do I intend to read this bullshit. But it just goes to show it takes zero football acumen to actually write about the Redskins. Most of what is written about the Redskins continues to be viewed through the lens of the failure of past regimes and rarely from a fresh angle. Sad that what's considered journalism is actually regurgitated pablum that's no longer relevant.

Re: RG III Should Scramble Away From D.C.

Not exactly the best article, as she called Jerry Jones a likeable fellow, and implying Snyder wasn't. I realize she is biased against the Boys most of the time, but why be so thin skinned about the not so rosy analysis? I mean face it, our post Mark Rypien track record blows chunks, no matter who we drafted or acquired, and we still have to build a great O line for RG III to flourish with. On top of that our love fest with RG III is based on only his senior year. I never heard of him as being a real Heisman candidate til halfway through the season. I am not trying to be an apologist for this woman, but why always discount some critical analysis of our team? I mean the running of the franchise for the past 14 years does leave something to be desired. As you know I am from Allen Park, MI, the home of the Lions, and I naturally am surrounded by tons of Lions fans. Everyone is on my case about getting behind a new team, a lot just over the RG III deal. These guys don't have any beef with the Skins, just are solid NFL fans and think we paid too steep of a price for him. Why do we always get a collective man crush on every QB we get? I still love how most guys in here made fun of McNabb as an Eagle, but loved the move to get him(even though they should have asked why did the Eagles let a division rival take him), only to say good riddance at the end. I fell for the Ramsey pick, but had to accept he sucked at the end. RG III can be a great boon for us and actually pan out, just saying I think at this point in time, with regards to our almost two decades of overall ineptness, any criticism is somewhat justified.

I agree that it isn't exactly an original piece or even a good article. I just think it is dumb to dismiss any criticism, etc. Face it, this RG III trade is still a big gamble. He hasn't played one down yet, hasn't taken a NFL snap. Billcik was very impressed with him and said he was a better passer than Cam was last year in the combine, etc, and he is probably a lot smarter as well. I think Robert will do very well for us, it is just a matter of surrounding him with good linemen that can hopefully stay healthy and guys that can actually hang on to the ball. Garcon was a gem of a FA acquisition, and will go a long way in helping both RG III and the other receivers. Still 1 future starter for 4 future probable starters does get me rethinking this at times.

RGIII is definitely a big gamble, but considering we just ended the season with Rex Grossman as our quarterback, this trade has nothing but upside for the Redskins.

Re: RG III Should Scramble Away From D.C.

Some of the comments under that article are priceless. I like that even fans of our rivals are calling out that article.

I really don't believe Gibbs was tarnished his second time here. Didn't he take the team to the playoffs twice?

Why is this thread about a shitty article still open? Didn't read it, don't plan on it.

Re: RG III Should Scramble Away From D.C.

I just like to see how many times a thread gets bumped with calls for it to be closed.

No bumps and the thread will just go away. And yes I realize I just bumped it.
