Found March 08, 2013 on Football Nation:
The Washington Redskins traded their No. 6 first-round pick in last year’s Draft, their first-round pick this year and next year, and two second-round picks to trade up to No. 2 in the first round of last year in order to draft their franchise quarterback, Baylor University’s, and Heisman Trophy winner, Robert Griffin III.Franchises that get this pick right when they get the opportunity to pick this high can see their fortunes go to unseen heights. The New York Giants got themselves out of a 20-year funk, and put themselves on track to win two Super Bowls over the next 10 years when they drafted linebacker Lawrence Taylor with the No. 2 pick in the 1981 NFL Draft. Conversely, the New York Jets drafted wide receiver Johnny ‘Lam’ Jones with the No. 2 pick of the 1980 Draft. Ten years later, the Jets were taking Penn State running back Blair Thomas with the No. 2 pick. We are going to look at the 10-worst No. 2 picks since the 1950 NFL Draft.

Circumstances being what they are, that isn’t the case, so Cousins will just have...

About The Redskins’ Hiring Of ‘Spectacular Asshole’ A.J. Smith

The Redskins’ hire of A.J. Smith, San Diego’s GM from 2003-12, as a senior exec has gone curiously undercovered. I mean, the Chargers were damn good some of those years, perhaps despite of our old friends Norv Turner and Marty Schottenheimer. So I asked sports blogging pioneer and deep-core Chargers fan MJD for his perspective on how we should feel, as Redskins fans, about Mr...

CB Derek Cox Could Be An Option For Washington

John Keim of the Washington Examiner tweets that  free agent CB Derek Cox is one ”name to keep an eye on” for the Redskins next week. Cox, 26, was clearly the Jaguars’ best cornerback last season, and at times played pretty well. Washington needs to find upgrades for their secondary, so it’s not hard to see why they could have interest in Cox. The issue will obviously...
