Haskins was graded by most teams as a 2nd or 3rd round talent. The football people in our organization liked him, but didn't think he deserved to be drafted at 15. Snyder and Allen overruled the experts in the organization, like current defacto GM Kyle Smith, and reached for him at 15 anyways.

There were reports all offseason and during most of the regular season that Haskins was not taking the job seriously. That he wasn't putting in the work. And that his own team mates were put off by it. "Selfie-gate" got a lot of an attention, but it that was just one manifestation of a genuine, true, and very real underlying problem with Haskins that you don't have with the overwhelming majority of first round rookie starting QBs.

Bottom line - the criticism of Haskins was well-deserved.

Front office executives, Coaches, and players do not deserve our blind loyalty.

People will (and should) like or dislike a player, coach, or executive, based on their performance, work ethic, and commitment. If they work hard, take the job seriously, lead, and perform, fans will justifiably praise them. If they don't, they deserve criticism.

Haskins was rated by most as a first rounder who the Giants should have picked. The Redskins draft in 2019 was graded by some as THE BEST in the NFL, almost universally as an A grade right after the draft. This excellent analysis of our draft was by many sources that dislike Snyder and/or the franchise. Haskins did great at Ohio State (beat out Burrows) and his only down was his inexperience. Our very high draft grades from pundits cane because the team waited to get Haskins at 15 instead of trading up.

Sure Haskins was showing a little immaturity in the TC, because he was playing with the third-team behind two journeyman QB because Gruden needed to win now. But he talked to Alex Smith and got strengthened out by him and got back into studying and motivated. He had a terrible first game but got better to finish well. He played hurt, impressing his teammates. He improved, which impressed his teammates. He showed leadership.

For a rookie with significant handicaps: weak OL, no TE, rookie WR, Jurassic game plan he got better every game.

Im behind Haskins now. Hes continuing to impress in the off season at Asburn with his work with Harmon and others. Hes bringing all the WR to Florida to work with them. Remember last season, he never practiced with the first team WR until in a regular game.

This offense will be much better than last year at OL, TE, WR and RB and most importantly in play-calling. This will ALL help Haskins -lets see how he does!
