Reports came out yesterday that the Redskins, during this past weekend’s 2009 NFL Draft, were slow to the punch in making a move up the 4th or 5th spot to get overrated quarterback Mark Sanchez. To Skins fans, you guys better be glad you did. .Sanchez will be a bust and you know, all of you, that Dan Snyder, slick and slimey Snyder, would’ve given up an arm, leg, and well…the whole army to get him and get rid of his previous investment Jason Campbell. Fortunately for Washington’s organization and future, the New York Jets traded away picks and backup players to steal Sanchez from the Browns at the 5th overall pick (though there weren’t many signs saying that Cleveland wanted or even worked out “Dirty Sanchez”).
Now, I’m not saying that Campbell or backup Colt Brennan will have better careers than Sanchez. To be honest, I don’t think many people will remember any of the 3 of them 10-15 years from now. But I disagree with Snyder’s ploy at giving up everything, as well as your team’s future, to get somebody who’s unproven and out of a system where EVERYONE is a winner. USC simply breeds NFL-ready starts at the WR, RB, OL,…well at every position and the job of quarterback might be the easiest on the team, especially in a weak Pac-10 Football Conference. Sanchez should win that many games and should be successful. For goodness sakes, he’s on the best team (on paper) and in the best overall football system under a great coach in the entire country. Winning behind center is so easy a caveman could do it…
What do you have to deal with now Skins fans? Well, your quarterback hates your front office, he’s not really that good, and you have the Pineapple Express Colt Brennan riding the pine….what doesn’t seem right about this?
