as far as the redskins thing (especially for those of you who are skeptical of the legitimacy of it), i totally believe that and it wouldn't have surprised me in the least. this offseason, synder proved he doesnt care at all about the salary cap and basically put himself in a position where they might have trouble fielding a full team in 3 years. the signings this offseason are ridiculous and seem incredibly overpriced. the redskins and logic in the same breath is like fox reality TV and self-respect. doesn't surprise me at all and to be honest i wish we would have let them do it. take sean taylor/d'hall with the browns pick and let the redskins shoot themselves in the foot. now their defense doesnt look too bad with lavar and taylor out there head hunting. i know, as a guy who has played qb, i wouldn't want to play against them.
I spoke to a few people on Saterday morning who told me that the Giants told Ben R that he was their pick. They were sure SD would take Manning and keep him. Hall was never an option.
