Redskins’ Mike Shanahan puts legacy on line with blockbuster deal to draft QB Robert Griffin III – NFL – Yahoo! Sports

What in the world is Shanahan thinking? Let me preface this post by reiterating that I hate all things Baylor, but this is madness. The Redskins have officially put the entire franchise on the back of a guy who never played in a BCS game. That in and of itself is not the end all measure of a QB, but it does speak on some level to the winning the RG3 has done in college. I can buy the Heisman, he had a monster year, but the future of a franchise is a bit of a stretch.

The point is this is a guy who wasn’t sure if he would get drafted as a QB or as an athlete when the year started. Suddenly, he is the #2 pick? Even if they think he’s the franchise, to trade three #1′s and a #2 is crazy for any one player. I hope he is the greatest thing ever, or at least as good as Donovan McNabb was, but this just reeks of desperation and utter madness.

Oh, and remember, he never beat the Pokes….

In a related note, does Blackmon goes to Cleveland? And what if they take Weeden with their #2? The offseason is always a lot of fun.
