Crazy. I don't even know what to say anymore.

The only thing left he has to prove is how he handles an offseason being as famous as he is now. I have no doubt that he will continue to impress. This kid is special. He has a Jordan-esque quality about him.

Wish a few games earlier had went our way.. now its gonna be a grind, but with RGiii behind center there isn't a team in the league we can't beat.

He just doesn't stop amazing folks. This rookie has completely changed the dynamic of this team and, for me, honestly and positively energized the fan base beyond anything we've had for a long time, maybe even ever. I just don't know what to say about him anymore. I've never known what it was like to have a player on your team that you could lean on to deliver all the time, and he's only playing his 12th game Monday. He had Dallas fans chanting his name. The. Name. of. The. 'Skins. QB.



MS looks like a genius for trading away 2 1sts and a 2nd for him. Quite frankly, STL will probably end up with the short end of this stick. Is there anyone who would take Bradford over Griffin?
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

I had a nightmare last night that we traded RG3 to the Rams for Bradford. In addition to Bradford we got our 1st rounders back and the Rams through in theirs in 2013 and 14. So we ended up with Bradford and four first round picks fir the next two years.

It scared the crap out of me.

I wonder how the Cinci game would have turned out if they hadn't blown Wilson down on that fumble recovery. Shame a whistle stopped that play and a blown whistle DIDN'T stop a TD run vs the Panthers....yeah, I hate the refs.

Same could be said for Josh Morgans penalty. But good thing is. We still control our own destiny. Let's go.

There is no doubt that RG3 is going to lead this franchise to glory ...

but there is NO WAY a franchise (like the Rams) that has a very good QB, that they are really pleased with, drafts another QB with that pick - the Rams made a good deal to get a bunch of picks

That trade was great for us but it was also a good trade for the Rams ... now they have to make those picks 'work' ...

the franchise that really got screwed was the Browns - they could easily have outbid us and they did not - they REALLY thought they were going to get that pick and Bruce and Mike swooped in and made the deal with Fisher and the Rams ..



'close' only 'counts' in horseshoes :lol:
We are very fortunate to have Kirk Cousins but Griffin has a huge upside IMO

Robert needs to continue to get better and to do that he needs time on the field - hopefully sooner than later

HAIL

And hand grenades.

Not sure how much of a bargain a #6, a #38, and two #32 picks are for RGIII.

^^ that's true but you can't look at a trade that way ..

there is no doubt that RG3 is worth everything we gave up

the way 'deals' are made is based on certain criteria and the Rams were CERTAINLY not looking at having 2 good QBs - they had a lot of needs

let's not kid ourselves - we still have a lot of needs and we have little to no depth EXCEPT at QB :lol:

RG3 is huge for us but IF the Rams use their picks well, the deal was still a good one for them as well

like I said - the Browns made a HUGE mistake in not offering more ....
