When we traded up to get Graham, I thought for sure we'd take Wilson. Welp.

When we didn't take Wilson, I thought for sure we'd get Cousins in the fourth, but we didn't..

Also, the Redskins make the Bills look like a dynasty franchise.

Shanahan raised the possibility Monday of benching Griffin for the last three games, citing 24 sacks in the past five games and the desire to keep him healthy for the offseason.
Keep him healthy for the offseason? That may be the strangest statement ever attributed to a HC.

I really wonder if they should have delayed his comeback a few weeks.

Egomaniac owners and egomaniac HC's do not a match make!

I think he's attributing RG III's issues this year to the lack of practice after his knee injury last year and since they're out of the playoffs he'd rather not get him hurt.  Odd sentiment for sure.  Certainly is a "fire me if you disagree" statement.

I think missing out on Cousins was the regret of that draft for OBD, not missing Wilson.  There's no way they expected Was to take him.

:-(

Think of a 2013 Bills team that drafted him, fired Wanny, kept Fitz as a backup, kept Chan and still hired the out-of-contract Pettine.

Several factors, none of them fantastical.

I'll always cheer for Wilson because he seems like a great guy and he is a fun player to watch... the whole run/option thing is over in the NFL, but he can still make a lot of plays

As far as Shanahan, I will just smile. The guy could have come here and been treated like a GOD. Instead, he'll go out in an ugly and protracted way in Washington, but at least it doesn't get cold in DC.

RG III has been better this season than EJ & he's the same age. Hasn't EJ also been sacked 7 times twice? What about preserving EJ. & playing Tuel? It would help our draft stock.

This is what Shanahan wanted all along, but couldn't do it from week 1 because Griffin was "healthy enough" and Snyder wanted Griffin to play.
