  • Redskinsí trade with Rams elicits memories of Giantsí draft day deal for Eli Manning. OH NO!!

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...Ea3R_blog.html

    This could be bad for NYG's & the rest of the NFC East. They're compairing this to the NYG's trade for Manning hmmmm... We all know how that turned out so far.

    The Washington Redskinsí trade with the St. Louis Rams for the second overall choice in this yearís draft brings immediate comparisons to the 2004 draft-day deal in which the San Diego Chargers, after selecting quarterback Eli Manning first overall, traded him to the New York Giants.

      Haven't followed RG3 career but was he a 4 year starter like Eli? If he was he hadn't had much press during that time that I've heard of anyway but don't live in Texas anymore.

        Lets see. Why dont we add up all the SB Rings that QBs like RG3 has won....




        Okay here we go. QBs with decent arms and lots of running ability




        Michael Vick = 0




        Vince Young = 0




        Travais Jackson =0




        Warrnen Moon = 0




        Tim Tebow = 0 so far




        Cam Newton = 0 so far




        Josh Freeman = 0




        Older QBS, non Starters or out of league, retired




        Steve McNair = 0




        Randall Cunningham = 0




        Daunte Culpepper = 0




        JaMarcus Russel = 0




        Donovan McNabb = 0




        Fran Tarkenton = 0




        Jeff Blake = 0




        Kordell Stewart = 0




        Who am I missing???? I am sure there is more. But i think you get the point. The Redskins Mortgaged their Future on the Type QB that NEVER wins a SB.




        I guess Colt McCoy could be added to that list. Also coming out of the Draft guys like guys like Eric Crouch, Jason White, and Gino Torretta, running quarterbacks are notoriously poor NFL stock.




        Football has been very, very good to us.
        After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
        But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

        # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

        1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
        2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
        3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
        4-New York Giants!!!
        5-NE
        Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

          The Skins gave up more than we did.

            I personally am pretty concerned about this. Yeah they paid alot but RG3 has serious potential. Fact is teams just dont win anymore without a great QB.

            Skins know there current crop aint gonna cut it so they are going out to get a franchise QB.

            As for people saying they paid too much... Who of us says that about Eli now?

            New league people... Defense no longer wins Championships. Its a passing league now. Which means you need a stud QB

                well we gave less to get the #1 QB in 2004 with a pedigree




                they are only getting the 2nd best QB in the draft ... plus they just got zapped with a $36MM cap hit and they won't have a number one pick until2015?




                so if RG3 comes good, then they probably paid a fair price, but if he ends up not winning a Super Bowl, like most "running" QBs have failed to do, then they overpaid




                stay tuned

                    When I heard that the 'skins made the trade I thought it was a wise move because they need a franchise QB. When I heard how much they gave up, I thought it was too much.

                      If the rams are any part of smart, they should be great in a few years. Skins got another scrambling qb, that makes 3 in our division alone, that our d will struggle to tackle but can still break.

                        steve young and rodgers both can run, but both are really good passers, not just "decent arms".

                          [/quote]Steve McNair was just inches away from winning the bowl, McNabb played in one and I'm willing to bet that Cam develops into one of the league's best. Steve Young was a scrambler, Elway wasn't a statue & Aaron Rodgers isn't one either.

                          I think in a few years 90% of the QB's in the league are gonna be a scramblers. RG3 isn't this run 1st type QB that majority of you think he is though...it's just an added weapon. His deep ball accuracy was incredible last year. I forget the numbers but take my word for it.... he's not Vick (although once upon a time I thought he was one of the best players in the NFL) and he's definitely not thanks for the money Russell.

                          These young QB's coming in the league now gotta earn their paychecks. Now we'll see who wants it more and who wasn't gonna pan out in the 1st place.

                          I'm kind of digging the fact that Washington might actually be relevant again. Tougher division makes for a better chance of who comes out on top winning it all.

                              You missed Steve Young that did win a SuperBowl.

                              RG III will be good for Washington Redskins but he doesnít have potential to be in same class as Eli Manning.
