If Haskins starts early it's because Gruden is trying to save his ass, not because Haskins is ready.
Just to play devil's advocate it helped Mahomes that he had the most explosive offense in football

Shameless self-promotion. It is what it is.

Different era. Also when Ryp was drafted the Redskins had Jay S. and Doug. Plus he was a 6th rounder. There was no need to him to start.

Mahomes is a baller. Had he started his 1st year KC may have made it to the SB.

+1

I don't expect it to have the same effect on Haskins, but acting like sitting the kid is doing no favors is unrealistic imo.

He needs to learn NFL terminology and see firsthand what an pro work ethic looks like. He also needs game experience. Delaying the latter is not going to hurt the former.

Draft pick status?!?! How does this remotely correlate to him earned the right to start his very first week? Give the guy the future the reps?!? Uh, did you watch the Cleveland game? Our oline has issues there. Williams isn't coming back. We have no real solution for lt and lg and you wanna put a rookie with a limited amount of college experience (yet alone no NFL experience) right into fire week1 at Philly? Got it.

Calm down folks,he's just a baby and he doesn't have to play this season unless something crazy happens,we should be more concerned about the o-line and recievers...let him sit and learn...ARE YOU READING THIS DAN???

Agreed. That's why this is a tenuous situation. He really does need to observe, get his fundamentals down completely, and let us shore up our oline. Let Keenum and his NFL experience (only 1 on the roster who has a decent starting amount) get started. I just don't get why fans are reluctant to give this guy a real chance. If he bombs fine, but at least let's see what we have in him. His NFL tenure has been fairly impressive, and the guy seems to have a great attitude.

I don't bring this up enough but this is a great point. We have a mix of has-beens and unprovens at the skill positions, and a guy who can't stay healthy at TE.

Re: Dwayne Haskins preseason thread

The tape wasn't as bad as it looked but unless Dwayne really lights it up the next 2 games, this job is Keenums to lose.

I agree, unless Gruden really wants McCoy out there starting which I feel is plausible. McCoy knows his system the best and has him #1 on the depth chart (realize this doesn't mean much of anything at this point.) I wanna see McCoy and Keenum both v. Cincy this week. Get them both plenty of reps.

Re: Dwayne Haskins preseason thread

I don't get this idea of keeping Haskins in bubble wrap until there's an optimal time to put him in. We have two journeymen in Colt and Case that are clearly not the future of this franchise. Get the kid in there it's the only way he's going to develop.

100%.

The fact some people think he magically became a baller because he sat for a year is absurd.

Re: Dwayne Haskins preseason thread

Case didn't look that great either but again they both played with backups. Hard to judge

Heard this morning driving in, Colt has been borderline terrible at camp since this injury flared up.

WHY does jay continue to set the franchise back with Colt?????

PLAY CASE AND HASKINS EXCLUSIVELY
