lol did you just compare LeBron James (NBA Champion) and Cam Newton (Best Rookie QB in NFL history) to Tony 'Da' Mandrich?

You're a true hater.

Re: Around the NFL...Training Camp Style

Complete non-football tangent

This might be a sublime distinction BUT LeBron is a freak of nature.
More physically gifted then anyone I've seen in the NBA.
Yes, even more gifted then Jordan.
Was Jordan a better basketball player? Without a doubt Jordan was a better player, but LeBron is still more gifted.
Full disclosure I'm a Maryland Terrapin through and through, but I can honestly say that Len Bias rip, was the closet thing I've seen to LeBron.

Nope. He's definitely not doing roids.
People of Polynesian decent in my opinion are the strongest human folks I have ever met. I knew this Tongan guy at my old gym (he since has passed away a few years back from a heart attack) Harry weighed around 300lbs. and he used to bench press 660lbs and probably more. This guy was amazing, whenever he benched the gym stopped and people watched. No he wasn't on roids, he was all natural (he loved to eat) we went out to a restaurant once and man that guy ate as much as he benched pressed. RIP Harry.

Anyone else worried that RG3 is going to bite his own tongue off when he gets hit from the blind side? lol

The fact we used those picks, to get the ram's pick, that we used to get robert griffin does not change the cost.

Our 4 picks = the ram's pick we wanted = rg3. Our cost was 4 picks.

Period.

How was our cost 4 picks, if one of the picks was RG3? RG3 wasn't on the Rams when we made that trade. We gave away four and got back one. 4-1=3. Simple math man. Simple math, period.

Re: Around the NFL...Training Camp Style

Ermagerd not the trade argument again. Whether you say that the trade was 4 picks or 3, you are correct, depending on perspective.

We sent 4 picks to the Rams. So the cost was 4 picks GROSS.
We got 1 pick to use on Gryphon. So the cost was 4-1=3 picks NET.

Both 4 and 3 are correct, depending on how one wishes to view the situation.

We traded 4 picks to get 1 pick from the Rams... 4-1=3... Then we used that pick we got from the Rams to draft RG3 3+1=4... Still simple math, You just need to make sure you add up all the steps and not leave one out. How do you explain us drafting RG3 using a 12' first, 12' second, 13' first, and 14' first (and that is, was, and always will be what we paid to get RG3) and count those 4 draft picks and claim it adds up to 3 draft picks while throwing out statements like... Simple math. 1+1+1+1=3 uh... I dont think so.

You talked about 1 pick being RG3... Exactly, the pick that was used to get him counts as a pick used to get him, seems self explanatory to me. Every player that has ever been drafted has cost at least one draft pick, regardless of the round used to get them. You dont draft a player in the 5th round and then claim you used 0 draft picks to draft him. You used 1 pick, a 5th rounder.

If using the 12' first we got from the Rams doesnt count as being used, then we still have a 12' first rounder (#2 overall) available to use. Because by your logic, we never used it to draft RG3.

Because we swapped first rounders, there is no loss of pick there.

We still used that swapped pick to draft RG3. You have no choice but to use that pick otherwise RG3 isnt a Redskin. Its still a used pick.
