All you can do is laugh when your team goes 20 years without stable, high-quality quarterbacking -- and then suddenly finds itself with two QBs to get excited about.
Santana Moss reached the playoffs in three of his first four NFL seasons, all with the New York Jets. After Washington acquired him in 2005 for Laveranues Coles, via a straight-up trade, Moss advanced to the postseason in two of his first three years with the Redskins. He was accustomed to such success, having lost just eight times in three seasons at Miami, going 3-0 in bowl games.

Chris Cooley has been with the Washington Redskins from the Patrick Ramsey and Mark Brunell eras through Jason Campbell, Donovan McNabb and Rex Grossman. Thursday's preseason opener at the Buffalo Bills was his first in-game look at Robert Griffin III.

What the Washington Redskins are looking for in their quarterback search, what they desperately need their next QB to be, is something that doesn't really exist: A Sure Thing.
