It doesn't matter what it took to land Eli, or Vick. All that matters is this deal is what it took to land RG3.

It's not like Bruce Allen is an idiot. They were negotiating for this, and the FO thought the only sure way to get him now was to pull the trigger. Seal Team 6 style. I support it.

i'm totally with you, spenser, and have been making this point all day, and about previous trades in years past by us and other teams--- they ALWAYS kind of say it in this way that i guess isn't technically incorrect but is definitely misleading. it does drive me nuts.

I can't quite understand why this trade is being compared to the Eli trade straight up.
The situations are completely different.
With Eli pretty much refusing to play in San Diego after they selected him, if they wanted to have their QB of the future actually with the team for the coming season they had to get a deal done. The Rams were willing to drop and could have swapped with any number of teams, while the Chargers had to swap with a team who had a QB they'd be happy with.
The leverage of the Chargers in 2004 was nothing compared to the leverage of the Rams now.

Obviously yes, we've given up quite a lot but to know now means we have a definite plan in the draft and clear objectives through free agency.

Lets look at the trade from a math stand point.

Rams' 1 = our 1 + 2 + 1(13) + 1(14)

We gve up three 1s and a 2 to get a one. So if they say we gave up the 1s they are correct! If they say we gave up an extra three 1s then they aren't. Prowl3 is correct out is all about the wording.

Wait till Steve Czabin starts talking about this to join out will be 4 fist rounders and a high two, which is close enough to the 1st round you might as erl call it that. So he will call it five first! He always said that Campbell cost us two 1st, a 3rd , and a 4th, because he counted the first that we traded for and used.

Back in 2000 we gave up the #12 and #24 picks to move up to #3 to get Chris Samuals. RG3 is costing an an extra 1st and 2nd over that trade.

Everyone keeps comparing this to the Eli / Rivers trade. It isn't a good comparison because of two major things. The Giants aren't as hard up for aQB as we are. They had Kurt Warner and had just drafted Rivers. Sbs Diego had less leverage, because Eli was threatening not to play fit them and if the Giants didn't make the trade they still were left with Warner and Rivers. And of course the #1 pick got a huge contact back then.

We probably could have done this deal in april for less, but then we might have sunk money into a QB we didn't want. Heck lets say they did a Giants / Chargers you're trade this would have cost even less IF the player the Rams really want was there at #6.

But this way we pay a little more in picks but we can plan our FA strategy knowing we got our guy.

If we had waited, the Browns would have had the pick. The Rams wanted to deal now for two reasons:
1. The value of the pick would be diminished after free agency.
2. This allows them to develop their own FA and draft strategies.

you've got to be kidding me. you people went to this great length to discuss the semantical nature of how many draft picks were actually given up? this is a fake thread right....u can't be serious....

look, the people with any brains don't even need to start posts a out this and they know the following is true and which is the bottom line:

the redskins spent 4 draft picks, which are three first rounders and a high second rounder to draft one player, the largest compensation in terms of draft pick value in the history of the NFL.

the end.

You can stick "the end" up yours!

I don't care what the draft chart says, the Saint gave up way more for Ricky Williams, but even if you don't, you HAVE agree the Vikes gave up a more for Walker.

The way I look at it we gave up three 1st, two 2nds, two 3rds, a 4th, and a 5th for Shuler, JC, Brad Johnson, and McNabb. If we get 8-10 seasons out of RG3 at the level BJ played for us in 99 then our trade was a STEEL!

Yep. Picks are worth what someone will pay for them, not what a chart says. The chart doesn't consider circumstances. It's a legit starting point. But had circumstances been different maybe we swap for only our second rounder. Without a franchise QB guaranteed to be there neither us nor the Browns would have offered two first rounders much less three. If we weren't getting a QB I wouldn't have wanted to give up our second rounder to swap picks. A good player will be there at #6.

Obviously you're a kid, the Walker trade was for more. But riddle me this batman. Discuss trades for franchise QB's because the rest don't compare. Who got a better deal? How often are franchise QB's traded? Only under unique circumstances, like the Rams having a QB they picked with the #1 overall last year. The Colts had Peyton Manning and wouldn't give up drafting a franchise QB.
