    In all seriousness I really hope the Skins can't get him, good QB play is the only thing keeping them from being serious contenders in the division and I really don't want to think about playing RG3 twice a year for the next decade.

    Does this shock anyone?

    Rumblings have been coming out for weeks.

    Basically a formality at this point.

    Third time is a charm for ESPN, man did they want to report some version of that story at all costs, facts be damned.

    I guess they want to amp up draft hype for ratings and if RG3 didn't declare it would be a boring quarterback draft, one and done with Luck.

    Disagree completely. This offensive line is awful even worse than ours. Their recieving core sucks as well. Their defense is average at best. Even with Griffin they are still not even close to being a contender. Griffin or no Griffin they'll still be at the bottom of the NFC East again.

    Their defense is definitely not "average at best". That front 7 is legit and if Laron Landry recovers from that achilles injury he adds another playmaker for them in the secondary along with Josh Wilson who is underrated.

    They were only 4 games back with absolutely horrid QB play and a season riddled with injury. You're naive if you think they have no shot with an addition of a QB like Griffin.

    I would not be surprised to see the Browns go after RGIII with the 4th overall

    The most burning question in my mind is, if the Skins trade the farm to get up to 3 to draft Griffin, what will his jersey say on the back?


    Griffin


    or


    Griffin III


    or

    Strange attempt at a put down, but anyhow Griffin had the III on his jersey because one of his offensive lineman was also named Robert Griffin, whom teammates affectionately dubbed the nicknames Big Grif and RG2.

    If he can put on a little weight and stay healthy it's hard to see him not having success as an NFL starter. He's faster, more accurate and has a better head on his shoulders than Michael Vick and he has had decent success at this level.

    If he goes to Washington, it will be interesting to see if he can continue his trend of taking teams that have been left for dead to unprecented levels of success that goes back to his high school days. He'll have to be a one man show in D.C. for a few years as well in all likelihood as they have very little offensive talent to speak of and their defense is getting old. I can see him reviving Sanatana Moss temporarily with his ability to throw the deep ball.
