This exactly what Ryan said and it wasn’t as bad as people think:

“He’s a good kid,” former Washington linebackers coach Rob Ryan told Colin Cowherd, via USA Today. “He’s got a big arm, a lot of talent, but definitely not ready for the rigors of the NFL.”

Ryan nevertheless saw improvement over the course of Haskins’ first year in the NFL.

“He got a lot better from when he was thrown into games,” Ryan said. “I remember in New York, it was awful. He wasn’t ready. We threw him in the game and it wasn’t fair to the kid. He just wasn’t ready. So at least each week I saw him trying to get better. I saw him trying to meet with [former Washington quarterbacks coach] Tim Rattay, who’s a real fine coach now at Oklahoma State. He was trying to get better.”

Re: Cam Newton to Skins? Predictions and Opinions

Haskins wasn’t ready for the first game he played in and his 3 INT that game really showed it. But he hadn’t had even one play with the first team , not in the training camp, pre-season or during the regular season. He was thrown to the wolves. But when he was allowed to practice with the first string he got better. Every game he steadily improved until he was throwing at a smoking hot level. He had a QB rating of 121 and 140 in his last two games - that’s with a shaky OL, no TE’s to speak of, 3 rookie WR and finally play-calling that was predictable and run-heavy.

The Redskins are not going to draft Tua, nor pick up Cam Newton in FA because it’s overkill. The team will get a reasonable QB backup. Haskins will do well as a second-year QB. He was improving as his rookie season progressed and he will probably continue to do so this season. The OL will be better, I assume the team will use one of their top draft picks (after drafting Chase Young) for the top TE left and Scott Turner will call a better offensive scheme than Callahan did.

Haskins will improve, so the team will spend their FA money and draft picks to SUPPORT HIM, NOT REPLACE HIM.

Thanks SF, I had seen that quote from one skins twitter page and I had never seen the interview.

Re: Cam Newton to Skins? Predictions and Opinions

If they sign Cam it will undercut the development of Haskins and Hasins' development should be their highest priority. Even Bruce Allen would not be stupid enough to sign Cam.Let's see what Rivera does. Frankly I am not sure where Rivera is on this. In my view there should not even be rumors about this. Signing Cam should be a non-starter.

Re: Cam Newton to Skins? Predictions and Opinions

The fact that Keim has been so direct and certain in his statement tells me that it came from RR and the team.

JMO yes we are drafting CY but us being linked to Cam drops our trade value for the #2 pick.

How do you stop rumors? Linking Cam to Rivera is a natural thought, and if you say RR should come out publicly and say something, then where do you draw that line. RR seems to believe (and I am ok with it) that he isn't commenting or giving away any strategy tips. When that is so, the media will just throw stuff out and see what sticks.

Re: Cam Newton to Skins? Predictions and Opinions

According to Rapoport we got the other Carolina QB. Think Kyle Allen has any chance to start?

Cam Newton to Skins? Predictions and Opinions

Yeah, for all the posters who said that the Redskins would pick up:

Rivers
Cam Newton
And every other QB out there to replace Haskins

What do you say now that the team hired an Kyle Allen, a XFL player? It looks like Dwayne Haskins actually gets a full season to prove himself OR NOT.

It looks like any real help in improving the TE or WR #2 positions will have to come from the mid or lower depths of the draft or UDFA. Kyle picked some diamonds out of the third and bottom picks for WR last year. Let’s see if he can do it again!!

RR was interviewed and asked point blank about the QB situation. It appears RR is sticking to his young QB options and a competition for who will be the starter in pre season will be how this unfolds. He definitely seems to be playing the long game with his approach to building the team. I honestly can’t say I’m upset. Winning in FA has gotten us nowhere fast the last 25 years.
