I'm not commenting on Pat Robertson one way or the other, but I do have a question about the acquisition of the rights to RGIII. I pray it never happens, but what happens if he has a career ending injury like Joey T, but at the beginning of his career? It's a freaky game, a funny shaped ball, defenses are trying to get the QB, and injuries can literally set a team back a few years. You say, "Don't say such things!" But I look at the Patriots, Packers, Steelers as the model for modern teams, and none traded so much to move up. In addition, at least, the Patriots are always in a great position in the Draft. The reason I bring it up is because in my Fantasy league, I have lost more games from injuries than from poor drafting. Injuries kill me and it causes me to be more anxious and worry.

Can you please not draft RG3 to your fantasy team?

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

The behind-the-scenes story of how the most prized free - 04.02.12 - SI Vault

Quote:
Midway through the evening Elway received a text telling him the Redskins had just pulled off a huge trade with St. Louis for the second pick in the draft, presumably to take prized Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. Elway told Manning, "Whoa—Washington just traded for the second pick. Looks like they'll get RG3."

"What!?" Manning said, stunned.

From that reaction, Elway knew that the Redskins had been on Manning's list.

Manning slept at Stokley's house in suburban Castle Rock that night, and the next morning, Saturday, March 10, the two headed to a nearby field to get a throwing session in. When they found it in use by a lacrosse team, they switched to Plan B, a community park with a 40-yard-square field. As passers-by approached during the workout, Stokley would yell, "Jogger!" or "Cyclist!" and he and Manning would hide the football until the person passed.

That afternoon Manning had another appointment scheduled—with Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and his son Kyle, Washington's offensive coordinator. Though it made little sense after the Rams deal, the Shanahans wanted to keep the date, and Manning did. They discussed football for three hours at Shanahan's expansive house in Denver. Talk about strange connections. Shanahan had been Elway's coach for those two Super Bowls and was fired by the Broncos after the 2008 season. Now Elway ran the Broncos. As Shanahan talked with Manning, a text message popped up on the coach's phone. It was from Elway. "Hey, Mike, put in a good word for us with Peyton." All Shanahan could do was laugh.

Re: Peyton Manning Chooses the Broncos

I guess it turns out Manning had interest in us after all. I'm not disappointed the feeling wasn't mutual though, because I am happy with how things have turned out.
