I appreciate and want to thank the added readers; all of to whom I write. Bless you.
Also, as predicted last week, thank God; the Bucs (+9, 17%) did upset the Lions. But don't be mistaken the Bucs are bad (they are +48 on NFL-ESP's TURNOVER PRODUCTION chart, but still 3-8--"That is not good").
And while I have not studied as much as I should to be 100 % accurate about all things NFL; I did want to take a minute to make a suggestion; which much reminds of the godly progrostication which I made regarding trading Brett Favre a year or two before the Packers actually did (which would have allowed Aaron Rodgers even more games).
In an "OPEN LETTER to Mr. Daniel Snyder of the Redskins."
While I do have a comment on the Washington nickname which I will reserve; here is my suggestion; and I offer it because an associate of mine, David Ferry of Virtus Consulting (www.vcgusa.com) may like another chance to get a job with the Redskins.
Now, with brief reasoning; if I were Mr. Snyder, I would trade Robert Griffin III.
Here is my thought process:
-Does Mr. Snyder want increased finances or more wins? Some owners put profits first; others wins; and many owners equate winning games to profitablity and this will be the thought process which I presume Mr. Snyder adheres to.
-Does Mr. Snyder, or any owner, want the Head Coach to be the center of the team or the QB? There are teams which do both. In this case, Mike Shanihan is a Hall-of-Fame coach; is RGIII, or will he ever be a H-O-F QB? Possibly? But right now and in the next 2-3 years; even if he, personally, performs amazingly, may still not be or never be a Hall-of-Famer.
-The QB is not the whole team. RGIII is a great player and person; but my group at NFL-ESP rates Washington a very LOW RANKED team. Washington not only needs for RGIII, or even Coach Shanihan; but for the team and ownership to drastically improve.
To that end, if Washington is to improve; I believe, again, they should trade RGIII.
-RGIII has great marquee value; which I believe in combination with his ability on the field makes him very marketable; however, when valued in relation to Kirk Cousins, who I believe will make a very good NFL starting QB; Washington will gain more value in the next 2-3 years, or beyond, by getting maximum value for RG III and a cache of players via draft picks or directly via the trade on both offense and especially defense which will help them improve and start Kirk Cousins.
-Lastly, as the Colts wisely did two seasons ago by not changing anything dramatically in the organization so as to continue on their losing ways and position themselves to draft Andrew Luck; Washington should make no major moves until the end of the season. Tragically, RG III already has injury issues; and there is NOT a player alive on the planet who ever improves from surgical repair; human bodies only habitually deteriorate--it's just natural human nature.
Washington is a politically-driven city; and for a multitude of political manuevers which I cannot describe here; if RGIII makes it through the season injury-free (which means Coach Shanhan and Mr. Snyder should deter passing and his scrambling); they should trade a "healthy" RG III at season's end and draft or trade more needed players and perhaps, perhaps even hire a new Head Coach since even H-O-F Head Coaches deteriorate in mental capacities and maybe a younger and wiser, more talented H-O-F Head Coach is coaching right now, somewhere.
The Redskins are the worst team in the worst division in the NFL and a team is only as good as its owner (and janitor). I hope this offer of NFL-ESP advice benefits the Redskins and even RG III, since he will make another team better and everyone end-up winning.
Thank you again, and please keep reading; because I think one day, just as I predicted and should have published widely about Brett Favre; when it comes to fruition, this time I want to write it on a Sunday (or Wednesday) so I can never be called a "Monday Morning Quarterback."
