Go ahead skins - trade your 2 first rounds for Miami's 1.02 or Cleveland 1.03 and whatever lower round pick they give you

That would mean that Gibbs/Synder "brain trust" would have traded both of their 2005 1st round picks and their 2006 1st round and 4th round choices for
one 2005 1st round pick and random round 2005 pick

Anyone wonder why the Skins suck year after year?

The way you say it makes it sound worse than it is. They are giving up the #9 overall this year and the (3rd round this year and 1st and 4th round next year) that they traded for the Denver pick to nab Braylon. Still a bad deal in my eyes, but you just make sound above as if they are giving up three first rounders and they really aren't.

When you are as bad as the skins I think you should keep as many picks as you can, but if you believe Braylon is that good and he can immediately turn things around I can't blame them all that much. I see them similar to the Bears. Good defense, horrible offense. I would love to see the Bears pick Edwards so I can't criticize the skins too much. Except that they better be right about Edwards with what they're giving up.

I can see your point somewhat but they do have 2 1st round picks right now - which is what some scenarios, they are contemplating trading away.
They do need to be stockpiling picks as they haven't had many in the last few drafts:
2005 - 5 picks
2004 - 4 picks
2003 -3 picks

It looks as if Gibbs is trying to retire on a winning note next season. Oh well, at least Gibbs still has Nascar to fall back on.

The Redskins #9 and #25 are definitely trumped by the Vikings 2 1st rounders.
The Vikings actually have a second round pick and more lower picks as well. They could package any combo of these to move up should the Redskin be trying to offer a 1st rounder and their 3rd rounder to move up (they have no 2nd rounder and also only 5 picks overall in this draft - again, the Redskins get trumped. Dumb@#@#%

This almost makes me think that Redskins may stay where they are and pick 2 1st round players (CB and WR likely) - but that would be the "smart" thing to do (if anything here can be called smart at this point)

I wonder what this does to the chance of Vikings bypassing #2 overall and getting more serious about acquiring the #1 from San Fran. Or it could go vice-versa...

Team A trades with Miami to grab #2 in an effort to get Braylon. Team B than gives up even more and trades with San Fran for the #1 and gets Braylon. Niners and Miami walk away winners, with the niners getting more than previously anticipated for their #1 overall.


Getting better and better :)
