We have all heard the old saying “Fortune favors the bold”. Well, if there is one word we can use to describe the move made by Mike Shanahan,...

Love it Bob :cheers: Nice to hear from our guy behind the lines. You know our rival fans just hate to see us getting a franchise QB :)

Yeah, I will be listening to that for a few days and likely writing something about it soon.

Bold? Yes. Daring? Maybe a bit. But the weekend is 100% better with the knowledge that we are going to have a franchise QB. That feels soooooo good.

What are the fans and sportcasters saying in DFW? And the Baylor fans/alums?

I hear ya. I am starting to peruse comment from other team fans on this move-trust me this is on ALL the forums. I've been tied up with offline "real life" stuff lately that has cut into my BGO time more than I've liked but this is too big a deal not to get reactions around the league. I'll put a Recon post up in a couple of days.

Good ol' Redskins, we do have a knack for snatching NFL headlines don't we? :eek: :beam:

They wanted us to go after Manning instead of RG3. The consensus is they did not want us getting RG3. I've heard that on some of the local shows and the pukes fans I work with. Can't wait for the drive on Monday to hear the local sports guys whining.

Yeah Steven, I just finished the late local news on Channel 8 and the weekend guy wrapped up by saying that the Skins and Rams had announced the trade today and that the Cowboys would be facing RGIII twice a year. He didn't sound too thrilled either.

Kinda has me smiling a bit bigger tonight.
