Dolphins | Offering First-Round Pick For Ramsey - from www.KFFL.com
The Washington Post reports according to a league source, the Miami Dolphins have offered their first-round pick (No. 20 overall) for Washington Redskins QB Patrick Ramsey.

Jody Foldesy, of the Washington Times, reports Washington Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs is considering other veteran quarterbacks who could be obtained in a trade, including Seattle Seahawks QB Trent Dilfer.
Redskins | Gibbs Considering Garcia - from www.KFFL.com
Jody Foldesy, of the Washington Times, reports Washington Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs is considering other veteran quarterbacks who could be obtained in a trade, including San Francisco 49ers QB Jeff Garcia.
I really respect Joe Gibbs, but I'm at a loss to figure out why in the blue hades he would want to bench Ramsey? :question: The kid has really shown a lot of grit, good ability, good decision making ability all in a system that wasn't working in his favor. I think Ramsey could really make some noise working with Gibbs.
It also makes me wonder what sort of deal Miami would make us for Brooks?

I don\'t have any idea why they would want to get rid of Ramsey either. That\'s nuts. I\'d trade Brooks for him. hehehe...

Whodat, you\'d trade Brooks for my grandpa! :P As for Ramsey...his days are likely numbered in Washington. The trip Gibbs made to FLA to visit with Brunell miffed him from what I hear...furthermore, I don\'t blame him...Ramsey I mean.

That kid is going to be very good Saintfan. Fans in DC are really going to get kicking themselves next year after letting Ramsey and Davis go. What\'s their starting backfield going to look like? Brunell and Trung Candidate? Now that\'s funny.

PS - what\'s your grandfather\'s completion percentage? Maybe we can work a deal.

I agree that Ramsey has a future, but did I hear you right? Are you saying you think they should stick with the guy and let him develope? :P

GP\'s percentage is only about 54%, but he\'s still got a cannon and hits the old lady next door in her hoveround in stride every time! Honestly, she drops a lot of \'em. He throws off his back foot some (never could coach him out of that) but he\'ll come relatively cheap...and he\'s only lookin for a two year deal.

Well, let\'s see, sounds like GP is a decent athlete but not real consistent. Hang on, let me consult my Jim Haslett school of Football Operations handbook.... uh huh... OK... sure... hhmmm... how does 6 years $40 million sound? Oh, and don\'t worry, we\'ll get rid of any backup with talent just to make sure GP stays on the field even if he ends up in a wheelchair. Deal?

6 years and 40 Million. It\'s a pleasure doin\' business with you!

Funny tho that you avoided that quote. I thought you came from the \"buy \'em trained up and on the cheap\" department. I suppose it\'s all relative to the situation.

:P

I never said \"trained up\", but I did say cheap and consistent. Ramsey\'s numbers are already good especially considering how often that poor kid got hit. Put him behind our line and even you would be saying Aaron who?

But Ramsey isn\'t cheap anyway so this is a non-issue. Brunell, on the other hand, looks to be costly and old. That\'s a real bad combo.

Brunell is not even an upgrade over Brooks. If he really was a top tier QB there is no way he sits on the bench all last season. Maybe it\'s been so long since we\'ve all seen him play that we can\'t remember, but the guy is \"pretty good\" at best.
