    I guess his dad has basically said it's a matter of "when" and not "if".

    I thought he would go back to school to finish up but the article on ESPN says he's only 12 credits shy of getting his masters.

    NFLN was talking about the Rams being in the drivers seat and will likely get a king's ransom for their pick, bet it #1 or #2.

    If I were him, I would have gone back. I'd take a shot at being a 2 time Heisman winner. Plus finish the Master's.

    Not saying he is making a mistake, just what I would have done.

    and avoided going to Washington.

    Maybe he see's the writing on the wall. It's going to be a loaded QB class next year. His stock probably wont be hotter then it is right now. He could very likely go #2.

    At least Washington will have to pay a king ransom to get him.

    With only 12 credits to go, he can finish this spring.

    2 time Hesiman winner would have been cool but I don't think that in itself is worth going after.

    I wish he would have gone back.

    Hmm, Cleveland currently at 5 with two #1 picks and a need at QB.

    Yeah, the price for Griffin is going to be steep!

    What about Miami?

    You have Reggie, RG3 in your backfield. That is some serious speed.

    If I was a new coach heading into that situation, I am demanding we trade up for him.

    Yes, I hope if Washington gets him they have to give up 2 first round picks and 2 second round picks. Then by the time he gets good he will want to leave that train wreck of a team.

    That'll be right around the time Romo will retire. :D

    He hasn't made his decision yet, he refuted ESPN on facebook, they jumped the gun with misinformation, he won't make up his mind until right before the deadline.

    And when he chooses to leave we will say, "Yep, ESPN knew what they were talking about."

    I hope he chooses to announce his decision during an hour long ESPN special where he tells us that he will be "taking his talents to the NFL draft".

    Oh aggie, so little joy in your sad world, I'm happy with Griffin either way he decides, but ESPN fabricated their report today.

    They fabricated a direct quote?

    That's a mighty big accusation.

    Chris Mortensen is putting his name on it now.

    Said RG3 is giong to declare.

    I'd be mighty shocked if he didn't.

    the Browns pass on RGIII if he falls to them. Not only do the Browns need a potentially franchise QB, but the franchise itself needs a reason to sell tickets. RGIII will absolutely put more butts in empty seats.

    I don't see the Rams trading down and passing on Matt Kalil at this point. Their first priority should be to keep Bradford healthy, and Kalil could start from day one, moving Saffold back to his natural position ( RT ) and kicking Smith ( who's been somewhat of a bust so far ) inside to guard.
