With a first round pick you have to give them 2-3 seasons as starter to prove they can win or not.

For every QB who waited a season or more before starting, I can give you a very good or great QB who started from game one.

If Haskins canít beat or at least match Keenum or McCoyís pitiful QB play, then doesnít it make sense to find out sooner rather than later? Keenum handed off the ball mostly last game and had a pitiful 12 passes for a measly 77 yds.
Dwayne could do that? Case had a game where he had 5 turnovers ( plus two more fumbles recovered by us). Haskins couldnít beat that?

Ppl here list QB like Brady, Young, Mulhomme who waited to play QB. Thatís because they were playing AND LEARNING from very good or even great QB. What is Haskins learning by watching these two journeyman BACKUP QB??

I think Haskins can play as well or more truthfully, as Badly, as Case and Colt. Then he is learning in the crucible of the game, not riding pine.
If he plays even worse than these two crappy QB, then we are at least starting on the trial period of 2-3 seasons before we AGAIN draft a new QB.

Remind me again, who did "Mulhomme" learn from?

You guys are right, we should start our rookie qb who came in in relief 4 weeks ago and promptly threw 3 picks, on a short week against a tough team whose one weakness (qb) turned into a strength the last 3 weeks since he got pissed off his own teammates were calling him out for being garbage.

I concede my argument. Now when Haskins fails because he's not ready, we can just sell him for the cheap and add qb to the laundry list of problems this team has.

If you don't want to start him on a short week fine (although I was of the mindset he should have been prepped to start vs. Miami) but the week after? You have 10 days to get him ready to play. Either he has it or he doesn't at this point I'd like to see him get these last 8 games to show what he has.

Peyton threw 3 ints his first game, not saying he is Peyton but rookies are gonna struggle, although that 3rd int was on Vernon more so than Dwayne

Re: "You Like That?!" It's Cousins / Viks Pregame Thread

Haskins will start against the Bills. If not then, then he has to start after the bye against the Jets. He wasnt ready week 1 and he might not be ready week 9 but he has to get in there in so we start the process of evaluating him. To not start Haskins at least for 5 plus games is so illogical .. that it makes sense for the Skins.

Craig Hoffman said yesterday on the radio that Haskins is coming along. In practice he is mostly checking out of bad run plays into good run plays etc so that is encouraging if hes to the point of being able to change protections, slides, direction of run plays etc.

Week 1 is too soon.
Week 17 is too late.
Week 9 is just right.

Re: "You Like That?!" It's Cousins / Viks Pregame Thread

I am not endorsing starting Haskins (which should be obvious by now) but if there was any week to start, I'd say coming off the bye against the Jets looks good. That aside, we haven't seen any indication from anyone inside the organization that he's even close to being ready, so I am perfectly fine with him riding pine as long as he's not ready.

I think the Skins are very lucky that game 3 of the World Series did not coincide with their game. That means people in Washington will actually watch the game.

Kirk does this every single year. Starts a little slow, gets red hot, then when the pressure is at it's highest, when you really need him to play his best, he folds. Kirk isn't and may never be a big game, playoff type of QB. But he is most certainly better than anyone we have.

I wonder how many people would pick the Redskins over the Nationals if they were on the same night? Maybe the families of the players and coaches and that is it.

Eh most of the country would watch the NFL over the WS, they do every year which is probably why the MLB scheduled it this way.
