Waiting until the jets would be ideal but I think after the Vikings the noise would be defeaning and counter productive to ignore. The kid gets a long week to prepare a game earlier than ideal.


Yeah but Buffalo is probably the toughest defense in the toughest environment we face this year. We have ignored the noise of ineptitude for twenty years, I can drown it out for one more game and give him the bye week and a much easier task at home. We will find out I guess.

Re: The Haskins Threat

Every week this kid continues to sit on the bench the case builds on him being a bust or at the least a serious draft reach. Either way itís not good. Another classic Snyder mistake.

I donít know about being a bust, all the experts praised the Redskins being patient, not moving up to get Haskins and loved Haskins. I think the fact that he started only 10 games in college might have something to do with it. Iím pretty sure heíll start against Buffalo or the Jets, then we can see what we got.

Re: The Haskins Threat

^ Yeah that was then, this is now. And the fact he can't get on the field with Case playing so poorly is really strange.

You hit the nail on the head. Case is playing terrible yet Haskins cant get on the field. Something must be seriously wrong with Haskins. In the old days you let players watch and learn. In the modern NFL players learn by doing and at some point Haskins has to sink or swim.

I think that's already been pretty well established.

That's not to say Haskins will never amount to anything. He could very well develop into a great QB. But the evidence shows he's not even close to being ready to start and so it was clearly a mistake to take him at 15. This isn't really news. Everyone - including our own coaches and scouts - knew this before the draft.

I just hope we do not compound that mistake by passing on an elite QB prospect in 2020 if (when?) we end up with a top 3 pick.

I don't think it means there is anything "wrong" with Haskins. He's a mid-round developmental QB that needs at least a year or two to develop. Our owner reached in a major way to grab with the 15th overall pick. The problem isn't necessarily Haskins - its that he was drafted well before he should have been, thereby setting unrealistic fan expectations.

Re: The Haskins Threat

Plenty of young Qb's are playing around the league. The fact that Haskins isn't tells me something ain't right.

So then a New Coach will be forced to develop a QB they don't want or isn't a scheme fit and the fuckin circle continues.

I am not even close to bust. Reach maybe. I sincerely hope they bring him in after the bye for the Jets who have a pretty mediocre D. It is at home. And let him know this now. Start splitting the first team reps in practice. Who gives a fuck about the other games leading up to that one.

Re: The Haskins Thread

Haskins is a very unique case. Usually a ďprojectĒ quarterback doesnít show the type of stuff he did in college. Everyone and their mother agreed he was a first rounder and when was the last time a quarterback considered a first rounder by everyone only started 10 games in college? We needed to draft a quarterback. Haskins wasnít making it out of the first round. Would we have been better off taking someone in later rounds that didnít have nearly the potential he did? No. He is also completely up against it with this shit show of a staff/ organization. Let him get his feet wet starting with the Jets. Not the third ranked defense on the road! He will finish the year , take his lumps, show some steady progress and have an entire offseason and preseason as the number one.
