Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

Our FO/scouts made a decision to take a QB because they thought he would be able to help this franchise
Before the draft, our greatest need was at QB - we drafted RG3
we ALSO drafted Cousins .. in the hope that we NEVER need to see Grossman play QB here again
we now have depth at the QB position - that cannot be a bad thing
Just for some context, in 1994 (?) Mel Kiper:
- praised Heath Shuler and Trent Dilfer as best of the best, can't miss QB's
- decided that Shuler was the star QB the Redskins had never had in the Gibbs years
- complained that the ex-Baltimore Colts were insulting him by NOT drafting a QB after dumping Jeff George and then drafting Marshall Faulk
Sure, Kiper doesn't always get it right, but I have a lot of respect for him. He has a passion for football (college football especially) and he threw him self in head first. He went from nothing to become a major player at ESPN and a nationally renown draft expert. I mean, ask the man for an opinion from a backup center at Directional State University and he'll have one, he's seen one of his games.
He's going to be wrong about guys, hell, even Bobby Beathard gleefully drafted Ryan Leaf, but he's very good at his job. Entertaining.
"Guess [Ryan Kerrigan] really does have a good motor. And is relentless. And never quits on a play. And just keeps coming. And probably eats Wheaties and drinks Apple Pie smoothies and shaves with Valvoline." -Dan Steinberg DC Sports Bog
