Rams coach Jeff Fisher talks about his close friendship with Mike Shanahan and the big trade that brought RG3 to Washington and lots of Redskins draft picks to St. Louis.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch sports columnist Bernie Miklasz found this little gem from John Madden on Madden's satellite radio show:

"At some point I have to admit that I said this, and it just came out. I said, 'RG III's the best player in the NFL today.' That's what I really thought," Madden said.
Miklasz also does a good job explaining why trading those draft picks to the Redskins and not taking RG3 was the right move for the Rams. Check it out.
