I don't think it's understandable at all to use three picks on a QB. Only one can play at a time.
And the Massie reasoning is completely bunk.
From the Scouts, Inc. scouting report:
You read it so it must be true...got it.
George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
I am still a bit miffed about taking the QB. There was value sure. Good player, etc but I still don't see the need for a 4th spent to get a 3rd stringer. I guess he is just insurance, or maybe they think he can beat out Rex.
I wonder what 3 thinks about it, but we know what he will say.
I would rather that pick have gone to the OL; or to get a S. We already committed to the kid, so lets roll. That's why I like Rex, no backup QB drama.
Cousins is a fine pick, I suppose. Best case he gets into some preseason games and some regular season games (if RGIII were to get injured) and shows enough that other teams want him and the Skins trade him for a higher pick(s) ala Kevin Kolb. Worst case in my mind is that he is a decent backup. Hell, it could also serve as more motivation for RGIII. I would have liked to pick up a corner earlier in the draft, I liked Brandon Boykin a lot and was pissed he went to the Eagles.
Didn't really know any of the other players that were selected. Looks like we got some solid Oline depth, hope some of those players develop into some starters down the road.
