The Redskins Bet the Farm

I like RG3, but I'm always going to be against giving up two first round picks and a second rounder--sight unseen. And it's always "sight unseen" until you play in the pros. With that said, I've done enough occasional football blogging to realize the randomness of it all. It's big news. And if only to not hear Limbaugh-esque talk about a desirous media, I hope it works out. (As much as a Cowboys fan can hope for such things.)
