Redskins: Robert Griffin III is no Jason Campbell

At least Campbell was tradeable. For the record, The Redskins in 2010 got a future Draft choice for Jason Campbell when they traded him to the Oakland Raiders.

Scot McCloughan’s magic touch with the Redskins

“McCloughan’s biggest accomplishment over the past year was transforming the Redskins into a structurally sound organization by establishing a clear hierarchy, which allowed everything else to fall into place, something not seen in Washington at any previous point since Snyder purchased the team.

”’I think now for the first time I can say that, after we got rid of a head coach who I thought a lot of who could help us win games, with Jay being there, we’re starting to get the players that we needed,’ [Santana] Moss said. ‘You know, I was there for a while and we didn’t have a lot of good players.’”

This nails it about the Redskins and Robert Griffin III

“The Redskins’ handling of Robert Griffin III almost from start to what seems to be the inevitable finish in a few weeks has been rife with mistakes. Among them was the decision to pick up his $16 million option for 2016. Not only did the option, which is guaranteed for injury, keep the Redskins from being able to either play or trade Griffin, it sets up a scenario where they won’t get even a late-round pick as compensation when he leaves. Click on the article for details but since the Redskins will be releasing him they won’t be eligible for a compensatory draft pick when he moves on.”
