Default Re: Redskins trade for #2 overall

You can easily miss on a "great" QB prospect, look at Jamarcus Russell, Ryan Leaf, Akili Smith, Tim Couch and so many others.

if history has taught us anything, we should all know that the odds are one of either Luck or RG3 will "bust"

it would be very rare for both of them to hit...although it could happen

both of these QBs have a whole lot of expectations to live up to, that's for sure...
