I'm sitting here flipping between the Caps beating the Bruins and NFL Network airing "America's Game: The Superbowl Champions" recapping the 1987 and 1991 Skins title season....and I have to say, daydreams of RG3 have been running through my mind all afternoon. As much as I struggle with accepting the fact that we gave up our next two 1st round draft picks, I am 100% onboard with this all-in move and as Tavon's call that Kevin posted says, if you aren't on the ship with this now, don't try to get on board later! HTTR!
I have been reading as much as I can about the trade all day, and came across a message board that highlights an added bonus of drafting RG3 that I had not considered.....Cowboys fans that are Baylor fans are absolutely torn with how to handle this. Message board link after the jump.
My personal favorite message board quote:
"the more I think about it the more I realize how impossible it would be for me not to pull for him. He's just too damn awesome and likeable, plus as Baylor fans we need him to thrive in the league. I also started thinking that as a college-first football fan, it wouldn't kill me to stop pulling for a team that has won only a single playoff game in the last 17 years. So, after struggling with this for a while I'm starting to think that if Robert goes to D.C. I'll be making a wholesale switch and learning Hail to the Redskins. It's going to suck but you can't pull for both. I'll still have my Rangers, I'll just also have a burgundy and gold GRIFFIN III jersey."
I love watching Cowgirls fans struggle to grasp what RG3 to the Skins will mean for them! Oh, and to all you Cowboys fans who do switch sides, we will accept your shunning of the House that Jerah Built, but you will never be true Redskins fans. Thanks for the support either way as we roll to the NFC East title.
