He isn't ready to start in the NFL and if I'm wrong and he is, it's still way more of a risk than losing 2 1sts to win under this regime

I don't think Shanahan even wanted to trade for RG3 as he knows the pressure he'll have to succeed this season. It's practically playoff or bust year for the Skins and I don't think having a rookie QB will suddenly lead them to the playoffs. He can but it's going to be hard..

Skins should have signed Manning and drafted a QB in this year or next year's draft(Barkley?) That way Manning will have 2-3 years to start and you have your future QB getting groomed by a HOFer and you'll keep all your first round picks.
