Lol, I think I saw a quote once "Let's get Shanahan."

On all the commentary lately, it's amazing how drastically the opinion of the board seems to change in a year.

Little too early to call the griffin move a bad one. just 3 months ago it was still a good one right lol lets all wait and see. griffin needed to be humbled. let this play out. hell come back next year hungrier to do well than ever and well see.

Franchise quarterbacks only come around every 40 years or so. It would have been crazy to pass him up.

For arguments sake, here are the QB that were available in the respective drafts at our draft slot in the Shanahan era.. Is there anyone in the list you'd rather have over RGIII, even considering the price?

2010 Tebow, Clausen, McCoy
2011 Gabbert, Ponder, Dalton, Kaepernick, Mallett
2012 Tannehill, Weeden, Osweiler, Wilson, Foles

IMO, perhaps Dalton but I'm not sold that he hasn't already reached his ceiling. Kaepernick or Wilson I'd be fine with but only because of the cost of picks. Also think that Dalton or Kaepernick would have meant 'over drafting' them in the 1st round that year or trading picks to move up in the 2nd round.

One of the reasons this is a bad team is because of the trade. It's not the only reason, but one of them.

So I'm curious, specifically which 2 players (which is the net loss of the trade so far) would have impacted our fortunes this season?

U can't win. Getting a franchise qb was the obvious wrong move.

If we didn't have Griffin, we would have three other players now (barring other trades). 2012 1st rounder, 2012 2nd rounder, 2013 1st rounder.

It's more convoluted than that since the Rams traded our #6 pick from 2012 to Dallas (drafted Morris Claiborne). I'm sure it netted them 2 or more lower picks, but not sure who they drafted. You can bet that Fox will give the full analysis at some point if Griffin continues to struggle, and the Rams do well. They may end up with #5 or better in the next draft if the Skins continue to play like they have this year.

Pop quiz hotshot. How did we acquire RGIII?

A. Traded for him
B. Commissioner Appointment
C. Drafted in the 1st round of the 2012 draft
D. I don't comprehend math
