RGIII's Contract May Be The Biggest Blunder In NFL History

Interesting article from CNN Money section, about the RGIII saga....they really screwed the pooch on this one. It's like the movie War Games, "the only way to win, is not to play." The Redskins gave up all those picks and money to get him, and now the best option available for them is to bench him or even cut him outright. Ouch.

Best thing that could come out of this; ESPN commercial of Dan Snyder covering Cher's Turn Back Time. Ditka applauding in the audience.

Another example of why you should never, ever draft a QB that won the Heisman.

Dude was incredible in his rookie year. Torched the Saints in the opener. No offense to Bradford or Tebow, but I think he would BLOW UP again with Chip Kelly.

For me it's still Vick, because MV was committing felonies long before the deal, and Blank didn't bother spending the $50K on a PI to do a background check.
They paid him 60 million or so for two years of play, and basically were in purgatory for two years after that

My vote goes to Albert Haynesworth that deal makes RG3 look like a Piker.

He has performed just as well as I expected after seeing him at Baylor. He is a very flawed QB that doesn't do well in the pocket under center.

JaMarcus Russell flat out hustled the NFL. It was so bad they had to change the rules. This part was actually really smart on Russell. The part that was not; blowing the money and then trying to rejoin the company you just swindled LOL! If he would have taken the money, made smart investments he could have retired before the age of 25 with a healthy body and brain.
