Re: Cam Newton to Skins? Predictions and Opinions

In case anyone's wondering who the "yes" vote is, its me.

My vote is entirely based on 3 conditions:
1) We dont trade for him
2) He passes a physical
3) the price is right

Wait for Cam to be cut, and offer him a 2 year deal in the 8-10M/year range. Not only could Cam help Dwayne learn the new offense, but he could help him develop as an NFL player in general. We need a veteran backup anyways, and Cam provides us good insurance should Dwayne get hurt or under-perform. And if Dwayne busts this year, Cam can fill the same role next year for whatever rookie we draft.

The trouble with Cam as a backup is that ever time Haskins throws an INT or has a bad play, all the haters will come out and insist that Cam take over. People forget how bad some of the HOF QB were during their rookie seasons. I’m NOT saying Haskins is a future HOF, just that he be given this season to prove himself, or NOT, without having to look over his shoulder every game .

Peyton Manning has 26 TD / 28 INT
Dwayne Haskins. 7 TD / 7 INT

Re: Cam Newton to Skins? Predictions and Opinions

Former Redskins LB’s coach Rob Ryan on Colin Cowherd show: “Dwayne Haskins is not NFL ready,not even close..

Did anyone see this? I haven't but Ryan could also be salty he wasn't kept.

That was around the combine. It was around the time someone talked about Haskins being dyslexic (not true).

Again. Why throw (old non relevant) negatives about a player who improved steadily when he was given the opportunity. Still seems odd to me.

It seems like Jays staff had it out for Dwayne, just based on their comments about him not being ready or being dyslexic. Idk it's weird

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.
