Seattle have buckets of cap left and a decent young defense

tbh whoever he goes to has a chance to make the playoffs and if they have a good defense they have every chance of going the whole way

He aint going to win a superbowl or get close to winning if the teams most mentioned look like picking him up...baltimore or the niners should ditch the QBs and get peyton......Out of the teams in the running i would say he goes with kansas or arizona, both would have a chance of making the playoffs at least.

Report d13phe March 10, 2012 1:30 PM GMT
an o line isn't as important with RG3

Targets to throw to are.
Report orioles March 10, 2012 1:50 PM GMT
I couldn't agree less, d13phe.

The Redskins' O line is so porous that it doesn't matter how quick he is, or what option you put in, RG3 will struggle to get the ball downfield. We certainly do need targets, but given that we've bet the farm on RG3, he'll need time (on and off the field) to develop.

"Ninety-nine percent of quarterbacks out there will tell you, you're only as good as the guys up front ... As a quarterback, you're only as good as how they are and how they play. Y.A. Tittle, Sammy Baugh, Sonny Jurgensen, Billy Kilmer, Doug Williams, Joe Theismann, myself, anyone's that's put on a Redskins uniform is not gonna be very good if your line's struggling."

d13phe.......I'm with Orioles on this and couldn't disagree more strongly.....they say everything starts up front and they MEAN EVERYTHING STARTS UP FRONT....it's not just a soundbite.


You could have the best QB in the game with some excellent weapons to throw too but IF he has five turnstiles protecting him he has no chance in the long run......yes he'll make some plays because of his talent and the talent around him but sooner or later it will catch up with him....he won't be looking for his talented wideouts, he'll be getting happy feet and looking for who's next in the queue to hit him.
Report Sudoku_Junior March 10, 2012 9:18 PM GMT
It is a high price considering, that despite all the workouts all the tape you can see, you never actually no how good a player is until he plays in the NFL. There is no doubt he's a talent, how far he takes this is remained to be seen. To me the way he interviews for someone so young is exceptional.

To me i would have much rather seen him go to the browns, the expectation at washington is going to be unreal imo, playing in the toughest division in football imo is not going to be an easy task, especially when you consider that the skins will use free agency heavily, this will only add to the expectation. I think the browns have missed a trick here, when you look at their division you have an ageing steelers side, same can be said about the ravens D, the bengals are still developing, to me it would have put the browns right back on the map by drafting griffin. As i don't see it being anywhere as near as competitive as the NFC east.

Just a shame its a long time to wait until september!

I'm used to people disagreeing with me so it's fine

I base my opinion on recent times when QBs were injured like manning and Brady.  The o lines didnt really do a great job of protecting the new QBs because the QBs weren't good enough IMO to stop the D coming after them

If you have a QB who can run, pass outside the pocket and bomb it down the field (much like Newton did this year) then the O line isn't under as much pressure as the D has to respect the fact that the QB can beat them many different ways and has to be selective when to bring the pressure

I don't have a problem with Schaub, none what so ever, i still would take a healthy manning any day of the week though. Just surprised they haven't shown an interest. Given them being a dome team, get the chance to stick it to the colts twice a year, he knows the division, and it keeps him away from eli in the playoffs.

I know the price has shortened but taking a punt now that he signs is still worth a shot, without him that defence and the way harbaugh runs things, they should be definite play off contenders at the very least, hence there really is little to lose, then if manning signs, you've got a nice position to sit on.

San Francisco has upgraded their WR unit, they will make a massive offer that Manning can not refuse. Plus the one thing Manning wanted was to go to a contender, 49ers have an awesome defence, the only missing link to a Superbowl berth is Manning. Expect 49ers to introduce Manning as QB on Tuesday or Wednesday. At this point they will nearly be Superbowl Favs

For some reason, and i have no idea why, i've got a hunch that manning prefers the broncos in all of this. There is a situation where now the 49ers could be left without a quarterback, if manning doesn't sign with them and smith moves on to pastures new.
