    Redskins Should Consider RG III Trade

         Sometimes, things don't work out as you hoped. The Redskins gambled their #1 draft choices in 2012, 2013, and 2014, plus their second rounder in 2012. What they appeared to get is a right-handed, younger version of Michael Vick. If their back-up QB Kirk Cousins can show something over the next three games, could an RG III trade be in the offing?

     

         I a previous post, I stated the following: While I feel that Mike Shanahan has done a poor job in Washington, and should be replaced...he's being unfairly chastised and criticized by the media for his decision to bench RG III. Griffin has been terrible, especially of late. Why not check out what the Redskins have in 2nd year back-up Kirk Cousins? 

         Benching RG III works in helping to keep his trade value high. If he's hurt again, and/or continues to look like an elusive Curtis Painter, his perceived value will plummett. If I were running the 'Skins, I'd try to trade the seemingly arrogant, egotistical, and pampered young RG III in the off-season, and see if I could cut my losses. I see RG III as a right-handed Michael Vick...flashy at times, great on occasion, but overrated and injury prone.

         The Browns swindled the Colts by trading their over-hyped, over-drafted, and overrated RB, Trent Richardson...thereby recouping some of their losses. Perhaps it's time for the 'Skins to consider doing the same.   

         With another weak QB class on the horizon in the 2014 draft, why not offer up RG III to the QB desperate Texans, for their #1 pick this year and next? Ask yourself this...would the Texans rather have the overrated Teddy Bridgewater...or a local hero (starred at Baylor and grew up in Texas), who, when healthy, has shown that he can play?

    Not.gonna.happen.

    Coach goes bye bye first.  RG III is coming of a serious knee injury and it usually takes at least until the second year to get back to the same player they once were.

    Shanahan has pretty much called Snyder's bluff there. If Snyder wants RGIII then he needs to fire Shanahan. If he wants Shanahan then RGIII is done...

    Ya got Palance saying to Ladd...Prove it...

    Synder is siding with RGIII. It is more likely that he fires Shanahan than to trade RGIII.

         Shane: So you're Jack Wilson.

         Jack Wilson: What's that to you, Shane?

         Shane: I've heard about you.

         Jack Wilson: What have you heard, Shane?

         Shane: I heard you're a low-down Yankee liar.

         Jack Wilson says, smiling: Prove it!

         LOL!!!
