breaking news: rams trade #2 pick to redskins!!!!

Saw this trade in the tv while I was at work all I can say is wow
does shanahan still run a west coast offense, or is that scrapped to fit griffith's skills?
We, as Niner fans, should be very worried. The Rams have a competent head coach now and already have their franchise QB to build around with plenty of high draft picks. Rams fans are rejoicing everywhere, damn it.
3 firsts and a 2nd rounder...... ......

For the #2 pick and an unproven running QB.....

6 first rounders in what the next 3 years? And all of those could be super high. Both teams are the Ssuuuxxooorrsss. They will rule the NFL.....

I don't think shanahan knows what he is running anymore.

Man, the rams are going to be good quick, they are already pretty young.
Redskins 2012
Pick 2
--------------------------

Rams 2012
Pick 6, Their own 2nd round pick, Redskins 2nd round

Rams 2013
Their 1st Round Pick, Redskins 1st Round Pick, Their own 2nd round pick

Rams 2014
their 1st Round Pick, Redskins 1st Round Pick, their own 2nd round pick

So technically with their picks they have 5 1st rounders and 4 2nd rounders in the next 3 years. If they do well and hit on most of these they should be Super Bowl Contenders. Big thanks to Washington, Rams fans have to be elated.

So basically to go down 4 spots the Rams get 2 extra 1sts and a 2nd. Assuming Redskins are middle of the pack team the Rams gained had a plus balance on the old trade value chart of about 1500 chart.

Remeber the Cowboys of the 90's? That's the Rams of the late 2010's and early 2020's.....

If I were the Rams - I would have drafted Griffin. The guy is better than Cam Newton was in college. I'm just glad he won't be in our division. I was hoping Cleveland lands this deal because that will put Luck and Griffin in the same conference. Bradford is made of glass and Rams will be looking for another QB soon. I also believe with Griffin on board - 'Skins will unlikely draft in top 10 for next several years.

It's always nice to have a LOT of draft picks - but they are over-valued. Fisher has a spotty draft record as well. We will see, right now I'm just glad Griffin is not in our division!

Arey you kidding me? They are going to be a dynasty. 6 first rounders in 3 years and an extra 2nd to boot. All 7 of those picks could be real high. They could all be top 10's (the 1st rounders). Both teams are young and still figuring it out. The Rams could win like 3 Super Bowls with this. What an opportunity. Wow.

I am pleased that RG3 is going to Washington, a little worried about the Rams having so many first round picks, but they have still got to pick the right players with those picks.
I guess Snyder wanted to balance out the NFC west. They are going to start a rookie QB and gave the Rams their picks??
