Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

I think you're overstating the opposition to that move. Yes, the usual suspects questioned the pick, but the overall response was positive.

No. It wasn't. The pick was ridiculed by the media. They said RGIII would be jealous. Their were articles talking about and predicting QB controversey. The articles that talked about the reaction that Kirk had to being selected after RGIII. That pick got a lot of attention, negative attention early-on. Then RGIII lit the world on fire. And then RGIII got hurt, showed some fragility and people were happy about the pick and loved it.

I also remember the VERY negative articles from many about the draft and how BAD a job the Redskins had done - PRIMARILY because Mike took Cousins

recently they have said this was a good decision but NONE of them said they were wrong - they almost point to how 'lucky' the FO was in taking Cousins
P A T I E N C E - it's going to take time - Snyder just needs to give Scot McCloughan the authority to bring in the right players and coaches, they don't need to be 'the best available' - PLUS we need more accountability

I wasn't talking about the media. Look at the portion of the quote I highlighted in yellow.
