Redskins trying to win Offseason again
I was away all weekend and missed all the Redskins trade stuff until this morning. I looks like the Colts will take Andrew Luck and the Redskins traded up to probably pick Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III. It looks like another stupid Redskins making a off season splash, but looking closer, it might not be that bad. They only lose 2 first round picks and a second and the 2014 first rounder is so far away it is only valued as a 3rd this year going by the draft value chart. My worry is that this reeks of Shanahan trying something desperate to keep his job and this buys him a few years to develop RG3. As a longtime Skins fan, I have become pretty pessimistic on the moves they make, but this might be the one that turns the franchise around, or he could just be another Heath Shuler or Desmond Howard any one one of a long line of busts and failures.
