Andrew Luck visiting Redskins Tuesday as well

Getty Images

It’s a busy day for quarterbacks in the nation’s capital.

The Redskins will follow up a day with Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III by spending some time with Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck this evening. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Luck will fly from Indianapolis to Washington for a meeting with the Redskins. He won’t work out for the team, as per league rules, but he’ll learn about them while they learn about him.

Florio told you last week that the Redskins were planning several meetings with Luck despite the widespread belief that they are going to wind up taking Griffin after the Colts take Luck. Until Jim Irsay makes the Colts’ plans known, however, the Redskins need to do their due dilligence on Luck so that they will be well-prepared in the event things don’t go as expected when Roger Goodell walks to the podium on April 26th.

While it’s possible that the meeting with the Redskins goes so well that Luck tries to leverage himself into winding up in D.C., all expectations remain that he wants to be the first overall pick in the draft. Griffin has sent similar signals about his desire to play for the Redskins, but, as a guy who played another sport once said, it ain’t over ’til it’s over.

  1. who would leverage themselves to that mess of an organization in Washington??…that is absolutely laughable…Luck wants to be a Colt…period

  2. Skins can’t lose in this situation, and that drives some people up here freakin’ crazy. The lashing and trashing just makes Skins fans smile even more. Keep it up.

  3. I will feel really bad for the QB that ends up in DC. So much drama and not enough talent to help them in the NFC East, let alone the NFC. Mike and Kyle Shanahan are going to ruin either Luck or Griffin because of Mike Shanahan’s ego and Kyle Shanahan’s playcalling.

  4. This is a win/win for the Skins, whatever happens here, only Irsay can lose as it will be his decision alone that will decide the chain of events which will transpire.

    Thus look for the consesus “safe” pick winning out. After showing Manning the door, Colts will leave nothing to chance and pick Luck, the consensus number 1. At the end, much ado about nothing.

  5. Luck would be better served playing in DC than in Indy. Irsay is a narcissist and the second worst owner next to Woddy Johnson. Now that Peyton and Polian are out the Colts will be the bottom dwellers of the NFL for years to come regardless of if Jesus himself quarterbacked the team.

  6. Smart for the Skins…just in case Indy throws a wrench in their RG3 plans.

    I highly doubt that happens. But you can never be prepared enough. Either way, Skins will have their QB for the foreseeable future. Is the rest of the team ready to win. Only team to beat the Giants two times last year. Some might say that equals a team close to mattering again.

    Even though I am not a Redskins fan. I grew up learning and loving football in the mid to late 80’s. Seems to me, when certain teams are relevant, including the Redskins, the league is better for it.

  7. Somehow, Someway the Redskins will figure out a way to screw this thing up.. It’s hard to imagine but all you need to hear is free agent or draft pick go out to Dinner with Beltbuckle boy and usually bad news follows. Maybe not right out of the gate but history says it will come.

    One can only hope we’ll get a year of watching the Rat explain why either of these guys isn’t the QB or the offense isn’t as explosive as everyone expected them to be after a 1-3 start. His head may actually explode on live tv!

  8. Oh my god, enough already. Can the draft just get here now. Or can the Colts and the Redskins just quit the charade and announce to the world what we all already know?

  9. We are, of course, assuming that the league will not strip the Redskins of the second overall pick for violating another rule that does not exist.

  10. At least Luck will get a free meal out of the Skins. Maybe Rat Shanahan will take him to an all-you-can-eat cheese smorgasbord place.

    How many picks have they lost? All the Colts lost were 14 games and some salaries of some worn players with inflated salaries.

  12. I love the people on here who trash the idea of Luck or RG3 wanting to be in DC… The Redskins won 5 games last year with Rex Grossman and John Beck… Do I really need to repeat that??? They also had a ton of close games and swept the Super Bowl champs… On the other hand, the Colts went from annual superbowl contenders to barely being able to win a game without their star QB… Remember when the Falcons lost Vick and the same thing happened to them? The Colts couldn’t even win 5 games when they lost their star QB’s… The Skins have two solid young running backs and a stud defense… No matter who they get, that QB will be inheriting a team that has the potential to become an instant contender in the NFL… sorry haters, it’s just the truth, unbiased fan here

  13. Wow. puckthe patriots calling the Skins a mess after the colts went 2-14. Kettle? Hello pot.

    Jamaltimore is just a Skins smalltimore fan who hates Snyder because the Skins have never packed up and left town in the middle of the night. Jealousy is a female trait.

  14. Colts lost more than Manning last season. Even with the multitude of injuries last year, guys on special teams being inserted as starters on defense, and the three stooges at QB, they still managed to lose 7 games by one score (8 pts or less). Not terrible for a MASH team. Colts will be a lot better than some of you clowns are saying. No where near the bottom feeders. Enjoy! I know I will.

  15. Why not??? They’re all going to some 5-star joint in Tyson’s Corner, Va., and Dan is picking up the tab, what’s to lose or fret about?I’d go, and I’d tell ’em who to pick too!!!!

    Dan Snyder….biggest buffoon. Worst owner in football.

    ———————————————–

    Ridiculous. Every time there’s a Redskins story, this old song and dance gets dusted off and regurgitated as if it were original. Why not make a Bruce Smith joke, too? That would be as original as it is contemporary.

    I realize that much of this drivel will continue until Washington wins, but the notion that Snyder is the “worst owner in football” because he hasn’t won a Super Bowl in his decade and a half of ownership is absurd. By that criterion, Jeffrey Lurie would be practically a criminal.

    Or is it because he frequently overpays for players to try to help his team win? I’m sure the Bengal fans would love to see some of those millions in cap room spent to improve the Bengals, or Tampa fans hoping for the same for the Bucs.

    Oooh, I know, it’s the head coach thing. Because Snyder should have totally kept Norville and his 43% winning clip, or Terry Robiskie and his 0-3 record. He was also the only person pursuing Spurrier, except Jacksonville, Tampa, and Carolina. And Gibbs re-retiring? Yeah, all Snyder. Blame him for Marty, but one in 14 seasons isn’t inexcusable.

    I suppose it could be because he’s short. You’d have him there.

  17. Hey jamaltimore, 3 teams make the playoffs out of your sorry division and only one playoff win?

    Great job!

  18. Just a few years ago Synder was the youngest to ever own a major sports team. He’s learned how to be a good owner ie hire football folks to run the show. They don’t come any better than Mike and Bruce. We truely believe. HTTR

    No, that’s Andy Reid’s schtick. And by the way, how many Super Bowls has Fat Boy won?

    Please, any reals skins fans would have a parade if Dan Snyder would leave in the middle of the night. Snyder’s track record is making the skins the laughing stock of the NFL and that’s not really something to be jealous of.

  21. tonyromoisterrible…dont know if you know this but Curtis painter was our QB last year..Luck provides an instant 4-5 win upgrade over Painter..Rebuilding does not equal mess..The Redskins have been irrelevant since the 80’s..Colts have been playing for Super Bowls for the last 15 years..and Tony Romo is not terrible

  22. So before we welcome the New Dan Snyder, let’s look back at the one we know. That’s the Dan Snyder who left his mark, or stain, on more than just a football team. That’s the Dan Snyder who got caught forging names as a telemarketer with Snyder Communications, made a great view of the Potomac River for himself by going all Agent Orange on federally protected lands, and lost over $121 million of Bill Gates’ money while selling an “official mattress” while in charge of Six Flags.

  23. 8-3: Record Marty Schottenheimer posted in the last 11 games of the 2001 season, his first as head coach of the Washington Redskins. Snyder fired him anyway.

    Sorry this debate is only for teams that have won a Super Bowl. Let the grown people talk and stop interrupting.

  25. If I was Luck, I’d be begging to go to Washington. Indy will be a bottom dweller for years and defences are gonna set his lunch with Indy. ie. Mike Phipps, Cleveland Browns, the kid was actually great, they pounded him into submission TRASHED by opposing defences eating him for lunch. Chuck Knoll said heD have gone to the SB three years earlier had he have had Phipps. Good Luck, Luck. You’re gonna dam well need it

  26. I never said he was the worst owner because he hasn’t won anything. There are 50+ reasons, other than that, why he’s the biggest putz.

    Meanwhile, we Colts fans TRULY know how to spell, and are thus smart enough to know that Snyder and the Skins are a joke.

  28. I’ve never seen a team so pressed to spend all there money in free agents…dating back to Bruce Smith…non of the free agents benifited from from joining the Deadskins…so just like every year since Lord knows when…makes people think that Luck or RG3 will save your cursed franchise. You should have spent some of that money on a new offensive lineman…before ruining another quarterbacks career…I know Redskin fans won’t like this post..but so what…do everyone a favor and win something before you start talkin trash every year…cause other than the Joe gibbs era….your team is always at the bottom of the division…and that’s a fact….

  29. There’s a big difference between Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin. Luck will meet with AND throw for anybody. Griffin is a coward and will throw for nobody.

  30. The Redskins are FAR more dysfunctional than the Colts and history proves it.

    Since the 2000 season, the Skins have a whopping TWO winning seasons out of twelve.

    Since the 2000 season, the Colts have a whopping TEN winning seasons out of twelve.

    I’m sorry to say it but, I think the Skins faithful are delusional in their optimism but when that’s all you have year after year I guess I can’t blame them.

    Shanahan’s playcalling was atrocious as we beat Philly in 2010. I can’t wait til we own Philly!

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    So, you’re telling me the Skins are not bottom dwellers? So in essence, a magical shift will occur effectively swapping the Colts and the Skins positions of NFL relevance?

    I didn’t have anything against Washington before this draft “controversy” but now I gotta say their fans are ignorant and bombastic. Almost as bad as Chargers fans.

  33. If RGIII were white, he’d be the number one pick hands down. Behind closed doors, I am sure they are saying that we already did that with JaMarcus Russell, and look how that turned out. I have no doubt Commissar Goodell has ordered Luck to go number one despite RGIII being clearly the superior player, athlete, and quarterback. It isn’t even close. Of course, the lapdog media doesn’t care. They report what Goodell tells them to because they afraid of losing access, just like how CNN reported Saddam Hussein’s propaganda.

    They aren’t. They invited, he accepted.

  36. Why does every Luck/RGIII post have to say something about they players possibly not wanting to play in Indy? Because Elway did it 30 years ago?

    I don’t remember reading about Cam Newton refusing to play for the Panthers if they drafted him. Enough already!

    …and their Hall of Fame QB, and their Hall of Fame GM. Wait til Jimmy Irsay starts running the team into the ground. What is the over / under on him revving up dad’s Mayflower Truck for the trip to LA – five years?

  43. And I don’t know why people are comparing Irsay to Snyder. Irsay has had a contending team for over a decade. What happened to Peyton and other crippled aging veterans had to be done. Skins fans are like the old saying. “misery lives company”. Unfortunately for you guys, Irsay isn’t it.

  44. Mike and Kyle Shanahan are going to ruin either Luck or Griffin because of Mike Shanahan’s ego
    ——————————————————
    this line here just makes me laugh. people keep saying that Shanahan ruins QBs, but there was only one QB who stunk under Shanahan and that was McNabb, but Jay Cutler isnt failing in the NFL is he??? guess who his head coach was???? i think Shanhan is good at developing young QBs, older ones though arent his strong point, especially vet’s with egos like McNabb.

  45. Every Quarterback who started two full seasons for Mike Shanahan made the Pro Bowl. Fact.

    jgava19, you know nothing about football.

  46. Aoc57. Learn to read better, clown. I wasn’t talking about all their QBs. I was talking about their inept owner. Btw, I’ve forgotten more football facts than you will ever know. Now move along, son.

  47. Let me remind all the Colt lovers of one little tid bit of information that no one seems to have picked up on:

    Bruce Arians, the guy who’s incharge of tutoring Luck, is the same guy who tutored Tim Couch!

    So who do you like now? Bruce Arians or Mike Shanahan?

  48. But Arians has a tie to Manning. He was the Manning’s quarterback coach from 1998-2000. You might want to do your homework next time, realdealsteel. Way to set yourself up.

  49. Bruce was peytons qb’s coach and OC with superbowl winning Ben rothlisberger too, so not bad resume

    Who cares about 1991, the last quality Skins season. That has zero relevance on the current condition of the two franchises in question especially in regards to the upcoming draft and the two QB prospects. Every team was good at one point or another, yours just hasn’t been good for a million years and you’re bitter. I understand.

    Lame.

  51. by the way, i think NONE of these teams are dysfunctional, yet. ONE team is rebuilding (the Colts) and the other is just trying to find a QB with potential who’s young. the Redskins havent had that for a while, and no Campbell wasnt a young QB with potential in my book, when they took him, i didnt see much that i loved.

    You can’t possibly be this ignorant. Cam Newton says hi oh and guess what color he is.

  53. I just read over most of these comments and was wondering why that is considering the lack of maturity by most! This is a mans version daytime soap’s by the looks of it. Part of me hopes you’re a bunch of teenagers and not grown men arguing like broads with nothing better to do. I’m amazed by how insecure so many of you are that you need to respond to every comment that isnt in agreement to yours. It’s another level of feminization in our country!!!

    PATHETIC

    Also, Clcan someone explain to me why Baltimore and Philly fans sound incredibly dumber than everybody else on this site? Especially Baltimore fans!!! Is the difference in education vastly lower in Baltimore??? How sad.

  54. @puckthepatriots
    The colts werent good until they got Peyton and Polian. Your new GM hasnt won anything. The skins are building the right way now. I cant wait until they turn thi thing around and prove all you idiots wrong. The colts will suck for years to come. The patriots will own your sorry a$$es for the next decade.

  55. Hey Toni, until your skins actually do something, shut your pie hole. The Patriots will own the Colts?? LOL. That’s all you got? Hey Einstein, Colts aren’t even in their division. Your putz of an owner will continue to spend money with barely any ROI. That’s what he does best. And have fun watching Garçon drop passes from Akili Smith, uh, I mean RG3.

  56. @tonyromoisterrible…Skins are building it the right way?…how? by trading away all there draft picks and overspending on average free agents??..Skins fans are as imcompetent as their management…by the way, Tony Romo has a wining record against the Redskins(6-4)
