To me, the speed of the NFL game is giving him the most trouble right now but he is adjusting to it.

His accuracy is improving. In fact he made some outstanding throws in this game, some of which were caught and some of which were dropped.

He's starting to recognize what the defense is trying to do and reacting to it.

I love the way he plays the game! He competes at a high level and he really enjoys playing football. I think he's becoming a real leader.

Yes, that's right, I am on the Haskins Bandwagon.
He kinda has that Cam Newton esque style of play in that he is always smiling and he can actually move very well for as big as he is.. He faked the hell out of Graham on that option play, and he also gets out of the pocket better than people said. I'm a fan of his toughness as well

It's a week to week league. If he plays bad next week the narrative will be dramatically change. He needs to have another good game next week.

MY narrative won't change next week! I think he is a very solid prospect who simply needs hard work, experience and time to develop.

Re: The Haskins Threat

He showed he can make 3 step drop quick throws .. when his first read is open and the read is in front of him.

He throws off his back foot. Is that just who he is? He throws off his back foot when theres no pressure. Like its just his natural throwing mechanics.

Hes calm in the pocket, keeps his eyes down field well for a rookie.

He fit some balls into some tight spaces that when it works, great throw .. if it doesnt, hes forcing it. Yesterday, it worked for him.

------------------

Its good to see him "see it, throw it" this game but Id like to see him take the next step and throw guys open and throw to a space where the WR hasnt broke yet.

Until yesterday that trajectory was so slow based on the eye test it was almost stagnant. Maybe even went backwards at times. Hopefully we see more of yesterday these last couple weeks and I can exhale going into the offseason knowing quarterback is not a need.

Re: The Haskins Thread

He’s had steady improvement and his best game against a decent team. He’s only been in 6 games and he posts a 121 QB rating. He will have hiccups as a rookie, but I’m encouraged.

I seriously doubt the Redskins will use a high draft pick for QB. They may go for a project QB.

Re: The Haskins Threat

The first pass of the game he fit it in a tight window to Terry, after that he was confident u could tell from the film.

Haskins was a DS pick, it helps our situation if he makes himself attractive to coaches because it reduces a major source of conflict with our dysfunctional owner. At this point it seems clear BA will not be outright fired so we need as much positive as possible to get a decent coaching staff in place.

He's one of those guys you want to get into a rhythm early, once he gets some confidence going it just snowballs for him.

Dan Snyder was part of the Haskins draft pick, but at the time this was well received by the media, with some sports articles listing the Redskins as having an “A” draft grade for the 2018 draft.

Look at who is playing in this team NOW, from that draft class and UDFA - Haskins, Sweat,MCLAURIN, HARMON, Martin, HOLCOMB, Steve Smith. THIS HAS BEEN AN OUTSTANDING ROOKIE CLASS!

The key person, in my eyes, is KYLE SMITH, the Scouting Manager. The team has had excellent pickups in the last 2 seasons under his direction. I’m for making him the GM. I still believe Bruce Allen will be fired and his place taken over formally or informally by Alex Smith. We shall see!

too early imo.

3 years form now, Terry may be the only guy on the team or Haskins/Sweat are both busts playing back up roles (2 1st R and 2nd R = not contributing)

Really? McLaurin may hit 1000 yds in his first season. Usually it takes WR a season or two or three to get in stride. Some never get it - like Doctson. If he had a better QB situation he would have been in the Rookie-of-the-Year territory. McLaurin will be our #1 WR for a decade.

Holcomb - he could be elite DB. Already, he’s very good, even with a very poor DC.

Steve Sims and Harmon -still too soon for a long-term prediction. But they’re decent WR rookies now. Sims is already a good KR special teams guy.

Haskins /Sweat - decent rookie seasons. Haskins has a 121 QB rating in his sixth game. That’s encouraging. Sweat has been slightly discouraging but the whole defense is handicapped by poor coaching.

Martin - OL, he had a decent first game. We’ll have to see how he does after the next 2 games.

This is a very good rookie class. This is encouraging because the Redskins have not had a good drafting ability in a long time. We’ve had two good drafting seasons in a row. This is because of Kyle Smith - I hope he is promoted to GM.
