Glad We Got Rid of THAT Guy

Redskins Insider had a report today that the former bane of Redskin fan existence, Vinny Cerrato, is a big fan of Jimmy Clausen, aka the guy we should not be drafting with the #4 pick. Whew! Good thing we don't have to worry about him anymore, huh? Our draft preview(s) will be posted in the near future, but every Skins fan who has any clue realizes we need to draft an offensive lineman with our top pick unless Bo Jackson's Tecmo Bowl character is suddenly made draft-eligible and slips to #4. We have a QB who is at least mediocre, but an absolute abomination of an offensive line that is at least 2 good players away from being competent. Until we get these 2 or more o-linemen, anyone we put behind center, except maybe Tecmo Bowl Bo Jackson as a running QB, wouldn't have a chance.

Which leads to our draft pick, where maybe Sam Bradford, who is top QB prospect in the draft for at least the past 2 years, slips to #4. I still think it's a bad move drafting him because he will be eviscerated behind 'Stephen Heyer's untapped ability', which will possibly ruin his development, let alone have any chance to succeed anytime soon. Even worse would be reaching for a QB with a lot of question marks in Jimmy Claussen at #4. We should draft offensive linemen with our first two picks, it's that simple.

Given that Clausen hasn't been entirely ruled-out as our guy at #4, Vinny's comments still give me the shakes, but at least make me realize that I'd feel much worse if Vinny was still here. Until the current regime does something stupid (d'oh!), I will give them the benefit of the doubt, but that 'benefit' will cease to exist if we draft Jimmy Clausen per Vinny's 'expert opinion'.

  1. I never ever ever ever ever ever want to have to root for Jimmy Claussen. I cannot emphasize this enough. The kid is a douche and a loser. A cannon arm cannot cover the fact that no one will like him and no one will, nor ever has, respected him. He is a corksoaker of the wettest degree. If Cerrato was still around, AND he drafted Claussen, I don't know what I would do with myself. Probably just call it a life right on the spot.

  2. Claussen is such a loser. Please lord, no.
