Trade w/Rams for our pick back

Postby Gibbs4Life » Sun Dec 15, 2013 8:49 pm

We could off RG3 in trade w/St.Louis for our#1 pick and build around Cousins. The thinking is that no one will give us value for Kirk but they will it Robert and we can win with Kirk

I'm not ready to say goodbye to Cousins, but I'd rather us build around RG3.

Don't the Browns have 2 1st round picks next year? I'd rather us trade one of their 1st round picks for Cousins.

Personally, I'd rather see us (if we MUST trade) trade Cousins for a couple 2nd round picks...maybe even 3rd. One 1st round pick might not work out, but having two 2nd or 3rd rounders doubles your chances of picking up a solid player.

Just curious, who would you hope to draft with the Ram's 1st round pick?

i think that 2 # 2s would benefit our team more than one first rounder which i don't see happening anyway.

No one is trading a franchise QB - are you kidding me

we're building around Robert - it was a disappointing season but he's going to get help (coaching and players) and he's going to be fine


we're very lucky to have Cousins but I don't think that adding a draft pick for a really good QB is something we would rush into at this time - maybe next year

we have areas of concern - it's not like we just need a couple of good guys here

IMHO - there's a lot of mis information coming out of Redskins Park and from the DC media - as usual

RE: Trading Cousins

If there was a target in a position of need we could easily pick up it might end up being worth it, but that would really depend on the position & player in mind. I still like our RG3 insurance policy though.

It would be insane to trade Cousins before his contract is up. What happens next year if Griffin continues to struggle? Do you want Grossman coming in for relief?! I don't even think there's a viable "vet" backup that would be better. They need to keep Cousins, because he very well may be the quarterback we need long term.

Allow me the luxury of being a smart @$$ for a moment....

Since the Browns are all about odd trades, I wonder if they'll take Fred Davis for their 1st rounder :lol:

Switching to serious mode now, I don't think we would get a 1st for Cousins, but if anyone would give us that, I think our best chance would be with the Browns. Still don't see it happening though.

Who would I target? Probably a WR in round 1 then go all defense and try to address oline in FA

How can you trade anyone after their contract expires?

That's my wish for the upcoming offseason.

are you crazy? - we can win with a lot of QBs - we can even win with Rex - what's the point ...

The Redskins will not trade Robert - Kirk might be traded but nobody trades a franchise QB who is only just getting started on his career

I would not take St Louis next 3 first round picks and a 2nd for Robert

+1 This is where the Babe Laufenberg or Colt Brennan syndrome comes in. The man has two starts. What amazes me is how quickly people forget Roberts rookie season. It is dismissed.

Some people were ready to put Pat white in there as well. Lets trade a bunch of picks and give up on all we have invested; for the sake of a quarterback controversy for crying out loud.

Some folks don't learn from history.

Unless it's the second coming of Megatron... a player who is a lock for HOF while still in college... the Redskins (in particular) should NEVER take a WR in the first round.

Thank you! As with Champ, you have to make the deal while you still own the contract. If
we are to get ANYTHING, it has to be while he is still under contract.

Oline Oline Oline!!!! Middle Linebacker and then the secondary. Only have so many picks so please draft a right tackle and fill in with FA where needed.
