    Yep...and we need to hope that the Skins lose the rest of their games...and the 4 teams below them right now win a couple more. Give us that 1st overall pick so we can do this all over again!

    Why not, we did last year, remember? Ogletree was acquired from a trade down with Atlanta. We had the Skins first round pick #22 and traded it for #30 and a 3rd rounder that we used on Bailey.

    Man, it never crossed my mind the RGme pick could end up being top 5... I'll still be surprised if it is; but it's possible. :woot:

    Very possible if you look at their schedule and the matchups. They could lose the rest of the season. And in regard to the draft pick, Tampa Bay and Jacksonville are looking better and winning lately.. Possibly both could pass Washington and we get a top 3 pick.

    I wonder if he is going to publish his Christmas gift wish list for fans to buy that like they did for his wedding.

    IIRC,Coach Fisher was quoted early last season saying something to the effect of "We won't be picking #2 again."
    See where i'm going with this? :heh:

    He was clearly referring to the Rams' native 1st round pick---not the ones conned out of hapless trade partners. :nau:

    I'm not sure but I think that applies to the compensatory or supplemental draft picks. But I also recall something about us not being able to trade away a pick that we got from another team. Anyone know the particular rule I'm talking about?

    We absolutely can.

    You are thinking of compensatory picks that can't be traded. But you can trade other teams draft picks that you have acquired through trade all you want.

    I've always said that we made out like bandits on thAt trade and it wouldn't matter who the pick was. In today's nfl you need to build through the draft because FA's just cost too much to make a run that way.
    RGIII is being humbled this year, he'll learn from it and come back better for it.
    ...let's also be clear, they won 10 games and went to the playoffs last year. We've yet to do either. Our team is getting better but we have a ways to go. The major difference is we have the draft picks to do it while all they have is a future tied to one player and no easy way to dig themselves out of their hole.

    I'm with KY.

    I don't think RG is trash, but we stole from the skins.

    That said; RG might be trash when Shanny is thru with him.

    I think he came back too early. He clearly cant move like he did. His game is his speed and elusiveness to move the defense and setup the pass. Now he is a pocket passer and he clearly can't be a pocket passer like the big boys. Maybe next year he gets back to form, if he doesnt get killed before then.

    Yes, if you're trading for a franchise player you have to use your pick, not a pick acquired from another team.
