I thought it was hilarious. Damn glad the Ravens have never done anything like this. Of course if somewhere down the line they win the Super Bowl with the RG3 then it will have been a success. I have no worries of the Redskins ever winning another Super Bowl again tho

I think the Redskins gave up a lot but they also are now going to have what they view as their franchise QB. They have needed a QB for a very long time and if RGIII ends up becoming a franchise guy it will have been worth it. Either way it turns out for the Redskins it is a great trade for the Rams.

We shall see with this trade once the reigns are given over to RGIII.

It's obvious RGIII is one of the most dynamic players to come into the NFL in a long time. That being said, I really have a hard time seeing RGIII having a long career in the NFL with the way he plays. I am not sure how NFL free agency works, but I could see him playing the rest of his contract with the Redskins and thats pretty much his career. Hopefully, his knee was effecting his throwing, because if that is how he throws normally, he can't get away with being a good quarterback without his effective run game. I can easily see the Redskins winning a superbowl within Griffin's free agency. Good season Skins. I hope RGIII's knee will be okay come next season. #HTTR

My two cents: with his knee issues and likely major surgery, you will see RG III strictly a shotgun QB next year. His days of running around and through opposing NFL defenses is over 8-)
