well, they're calling it 3 first rounders, but it's really only 2. they switched firsts this year (plus their 2nd) and added their firsts from the 2013 and 2014 drafts.
3 1sts round picks ? Holy poo.
considering the kids talent and that he fits a shanny offense pretty perfectly, not a bad call. it's steep, but makes sense.
i'm just glad we didn't have to do anything but suck for a year to get a better QB.

Based on his interviews, he seems like a very bright and mature young guy as well.
5 years from now, it will be interesting to see where he is, and where Cam is, as far as QB ratings, wins, etc.

Big risk by the Skins.
Oh yeah, id take cam over him anyday all day.

Think about it, what gives you the best chance to find a franchise quarterback- taking one in the first and second round this year and then using your first rounder the next 2 years to pick another one if this year's didn't work out, or putting all those picks together and betting the farm on RGIII.
Think about it, if Gabbert were the second best QB would someone make a big move up for him and would that have worked out if it was only switching 1s and next years first rounder?? Is RGIII that much better coming out of college than Gabbert was touted to be??? I know some will say yes but remember most folks had Gabbert higher than Newton. Did Cam forever change that paradigm? After all if not for him, RGIII wouldn't even be a first rounder. Yeah I know their skill sets are somewhat different but lets be real, RGIII is number 2 because of Cam's success as much as for his own merit.

Im happy RG3 is getting his shot, but he's goin to a shitty situation. No receivers, no O-line (in a division wit big physical D Lines), the team just mortgaged future picks, and Shanny is his coach! Sheesh, his career may be over before it starts. Good luck.

Wonder how much our game against the Redskins earlier in the year played a part in Snyder wanting RGIII? Probably called JR up during the game and offered 10 1st round picks.

Lot to give up but i love the kid. Washington hasn't had a great QB since....Hell they haven't had a good QB since..The Kid has it all. Great arm strength. Highly accurate with a fast release. Smart smart and more smart, Squeaky clean, no questions about his past. Everybody knows he's fast. I mean hey, the list could go on and on. Can't wait to see him on the field. Reminds me of a faster, more athletic John Elway. I'm stoked!
Holy fug, since when did you make a new account?
Don't you think it's time you left already?
