    Absolutely! Youth before age, always, when both players are as dynamic as these two.

    Well, my vote would be no, but of course I don't think I am looking at it the same way as you all are ;)

    Our team SHOULD be in full rebuilding mode but we have an owner who is too stupid to realize that. We are always "One or two players away", or one or 2 wins away from reaching the playoffs, etc.

    Nice. There isn't one Redskin fan on this earth who would trade RG3 for Romo.

    Whatever... But ask yourself how many historic QB's had "average" 2nd years & yet you chose to compare him to CAM!?! What ever will make you sleep better, RGIII is in no way form, shape or fashion a Newton prototype (PERIOD).

    I don't believe they feel the team is 1-2 players away, but that they can rebuild on the fly and still contend.

    I think RG3 is already in win now mode. I'm sure there will be a lot of people picking the Skins in the Superbowl next year as well.

    Funny thing I always think about when someone makes a Cam comparison...

    If their game is so similar, and they play the same way and have the same talent...there is film on Cam.

    RG3 is playing the same offense ? RG3 is the similar player ? Why is Cam not as successful this year and yet RG3 is...when basically they are mirrored players ?

    RG3 is simply a better QB. Perhaps it is the loss of Jeremy Shockey ?

    The Redskins have mediocre play for the TE position besides blocking.

    Hmmm...

    No such thing as rebuilding unless you don't have a QB.


    It's all about QB and coaching in this league. If you have both then you are usually a top team, if you only have 1 then you usually are somewhere in the middle, if you have neither then you are towards the bottom.

    In the Cowboys case, we don't have a coach.

    Nope.

    We've seen RG3 before. Been dazzled by them over and over again. Then the hits start to pile up, production starts to go down, time starts to be missed, and the wins go away.

    No reason yet to believe RG3 will be any different.

    Look what Romo did on Sunday with a mediocre running game. RG3 is playing with the #1 rushing offense in the NFL.

    If anyone would take RG3 over Romo now, they haven't been paying attention to the NFL for the last 15 years.

    Sorry, it was off topic. I was just curious. Thanks.

    2 things

    RG3 has a coach that has put him in a perfect system for him.

    2. Rg3 can read defenses and anticipate where the ball should go before the receiver has even broke out of his route.

    Cam locks onto the primary receiver (usually Steve Smith) too much.

    No problem. Just thought it had something to do with RG3. And why did you assume Witten is my favorite player? (He's not by the way).

    I didn't assume that, I just wanted to take out an easy favorite that most would say.

    haha.

    Anyway back to topic...you all are crazy if you wouldn't trade for an up and coming star in this league.

    Romo takes a lot of hits too so I don't see the point there. Plus RG3 is as good in the pocket as anyone we've seen at this stage in his career.

    Also he's 6'3, 225lbs. Thats average size for that position.

    they don't play the same at all. two different qb's. RG3 is much more careful with the ball, and chews up chunks of yardage with his scrambles. Cam takes a lot more risks throwing and running, and is a serious threat in the red zone because of his strength and size. I think the main reason cam has fallen off this year is because the running game isn't nearly as effective for the panthers this year. Frankly, if Cam was the RG3 prototype, wouldn't defenses already know what to do against RG3?

    But, as for the original topic....I think you have to make that trade if you're the cowboys. I love Romo, and I don't think he's gotten a fair shake with us in Dallas. But he's already in his 30's, and I don't know how long he can survive with this line the way it is. RG3 has an equally crappy line I would think, but he's a lot faster and younger than Romo is. He doesn't have the same pocket awareness as Tony, but can make up the difference with his physical gifts. And the dude is tearing ish up in the league right now with c to b level skill players. Imagine the damage he could do with Witten, Dez, and Miles? I'd make the trade in a heartbeat.
