Revisiting the Kerrigan Trade

Hey guys,

Given a lot of the debate recently about how the Redskins passed up their chance for a 'franchise quarterback' last April, I wanted to share an article I wrote on Fanspeak about the Redskins decision to trade back here, last April. Yes they essentially gave up Blaine Gabbert, but they got Ryan Kerrigan, Leonard Hankerson and Roy Helu (among others) in return (also I look at Christian Ponder and Andy Dalton what if scenarios). I know the decision was debated at the time, but it seems to still come up given the struggles of John Beck and Rex Grossman. Anyways I thought it was a good discussion for us Skins fans to have since the Redskins could end up with a similar debate this year.

Anyways tell me what you think?

Did the Redskins make the right call trading back? Or should they have grabbed a rookie last year to get their quarterback?
