That is a great deal for the Rams, at 6 they'll probably get whoever they were targeting anyway, plus an added 2 first rounders and this years 2nd rounder...man they gave it to the Skins and put sand in the vaseline so it really hurt.

Both McShay and The Hairstyle have Blackmon not in tthe top 5, so if they're to be believed, he could end up with the Rams at 6, a position they have a huge need at, and he'd more than fill it, plus they add all these picks...look out for the LA Rams in 2014 and beyond.
If Cleveland really was offering three first rounders (where did you hear that?), then they're the luckiest sons of bitches around.

Also, Cleveland could very well take Blackmon at four, which would box out St. Louis.

Still, yes, St. Louis clearly won this deal. Has everyone forgotten the Manning deal? The Giants gave up that year's first (Rivers), a third (Kaeding), and a second the next year (Merriman). This is an unprecedented amount to give up, and it's not really close.

Numerous articles mentioned the Cleveland offer. Apparently Cleveland didn't offer their second round pick, and that was the difference.

Tremendous trade.

I'm not sure if Blackmon will be around at #6 - I could see Cleveland taking him before that, not only because they need a receiver, but almost out of spite so that the Rams can't get him either.

Hewson and I disagreed a few years back when the Bears traded all those picks for Cutler.

Look at it now, bitches. Bears have a young, top 10 quarterback on the come up, banging the hot girl from Laguna Beach, straight studdin. Gangsta in the locker room. Zip 'em up. More than half the teams in the league would kill to have someone as good as Jay Cutler at QB right now.

Fuck with me.

Basically, my point is this:

The world only spins forward. If you're targeting your franchise #1 QB...fuck draft picks. Great move by the Redskins.

Can't say I blame the Redskins either. But a good job done by the Rams to squeeze out as much as they could. Three #1s and a 2 is ridiculous.

The Bears were better than the Redskins are now. And they're also not run by a shithead like Daniel Snyder.

Gotcha. I had not read much before I went to sleep last night so I honestly just haven't heard much about the other offers.

Cleveland needs some offensive weapons. At this point, I'd be a bit surprised if they didn't take Blackmon at four.

Again, it's not time to focus mental energies on whining about what we lost. Time to put faith in the future. We're taking a chance at one for once, instead of mortgaging it on decrepit bullshit.

We also had a very good defense last year that will only improve with greater coherence and, hopefully, health. I think we'll be very decent next year, especially if Helu pans out.

Agreed with GAF even though I question if Cutler will elevate his game any higher. It really doesn't matter. They have a good QB.

With further wheeling and dealing with the Bears' 2010 1st rounder, Denver ended up netting Robert Ayers, Demayrius Thomas, Tim Tebow and Eric Decker out of the deal, and Pittsburgh got Mike Wallace with the Bears 2009 3rd rounder after Denver traded it to them...I stand by the Broncos getting the better of that deal. (though they should have kept Neckbeard, then it would have been a white wash, plus the bars in Denver would have done far more business last fall/winter)

...and yet the Giants have two rings to show for that trade and San Diego has none.

If RG3 is a franchise QB, Washington will not care about all the picks. If RG3 is a bust and St. Louis turns this into their version of the Herschel Walker trade, then Washington fans will be sick for decades.

Both teams went all in... the winner has yet to be determined.

An my point is that Washington is giving up a lot more than New York did, and have a much shakier history of building a team.

What a wild weekend. Peyton now in Arizona probably until tomorrow night.

I like the Dolphins going last. They get to up the price from DEN/AZ and play the Reggie Wayne card. I'd just bring Wayne to the facility.

Guess they are making up for last seasons lockout. Lots of stuff going on now.
