Re: Haskins in his own words

Yes a GREAT read. DH passes the eye test for me. He looks like a QB. Big Ben, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Drew Brees to name a few look like QB's.

He also majored in journalism, pretty cool stuff. I am rooting for the kid!

Re: Haskins in his own words

I think Haskins will be a good scheme fit for Scott Turner and RR.

We really need his young weapons to mature quickly tho...

Re: Haskins in his own words

I think this should settle any fears of him not understanding what he has to do to improve. He clearly gets it.

Or it's the other way around. I read this article explaining how Scott likes to call plays that take advantage of players' strengths. So I can see Scott working with Haskins to figure out what Haskins is good at and then call appropriate plays that will showcase Haskins's strengths.

Re: Haskins in his own words

This was an insightful read into his thinking. I like hearing how he breaks it down for himself - avoiding the negative plays, don't compound mistakes by trying to be a hero. It shows a guy who is focused on taking each incremental step and layering it. It says he's likely to continue improving.

Exactly.

I also like that I read about Turner's use of analytics to help in breaking tendancies in how he calls games.

So we have a young, talented, motivated QB ... with a young, up-and-coming, OC whose Daddy is pretty much a legend in the league ... and a Defense that is built with first round talent and has a DC that has proven himself in that position several times in the past.

It's hard not to like the direction we're finally pointing to.

Say your prayers that our O-Line can find some semblance of competency. Next year could be pretty fun, with zero expectations. It would be great to fuck up Dallas' dreams.

Re: Haskins in his own words

I like the fact that he acknowledges his mistakes AND the fact that it was frustrating for him that "it wasn't easy".
I think there may have been a little bit of "I'm so good I don't need to work, it's always been easy to win", so it's a great sign that he became aware of it and accepted it was not going to be easy.

Meh. He's okay but he ain't no Tua.

Is that you, Bruce Allen? Still fond of injury-prone players, I see.

Re: Haskins in his own words

I have high hopes for Haskins this year and I think he'll surprise people.

Looks like he is taking this offseason seriously.
Dude is down to 7% body fat

7%?

What a fat piece of shit.

Tua's probably around 3-4%

Seriously though I heard Sheehan said Haskins already lost 4% body fat last offseason and people were impressed by how big of a difference it made in the way he moved, and now he has lost 4% more, that's a good sign, both from a mobility and motivation/worth ethic sand point.
