The Washington Redskins just traded away major assets for the rights to draft Robert Griffin.

D.C. gave the St. Louis Rams three first round draft selections and a second round selection. Thatís a first & second round pick this year and the Skinsí first round picks for the next two seasons.

Quite a haul to give up for a pick which will presumably be used on a quarterback who has never played a down in the pros.

We like Griffin, and think he will be a great fit in Washington. But if a quarterback of his proposed caliber is worth that much, what is a player like Ben Roethlisberger worth?


Did you guys see that roster?

Good god. That would be insane. I know this is all hypothetical and I would never trade Ben, but wow.
I don't understand you? Maybe it's too much time on your hands? I see complaints about Ben scrambling and shortening his football life. Now I see trade Ben, let's get a QB who scrambles more and bet the farm on a QB who is a higher risk. I'll pass and keep the current QB.
