Whether anybody said Haskins was a can't miss is irrelevant. The point on QBs is that until you have one, you don't have a chance. So do you think we have one? That's the thinking you have to go through.

If you think Haskins might be a bust, and you have a shot at the next QB, the upside is so significant that it has to garner consideration.

That all said, your point about trading down is a good one. If you can land a deal that hauls you a bunch of picks, that might be preferable, even to taking Joe Burrow (maybe). It takes two to tango, though.
God made certain people to play football. He was one of them.

Re: What do you want to see the rest of the Year?

Although every draft pick is a gamble, most of the best players ARE picked in the first round. The fact that we got McLaurin in the third round is an anomaly. This teams needs a couple real stars. Right now who is a superstar on this team? McLaurin? Who on defense? If you have a chance to draft a superstar - you take it and watch as your new star carries the defense or offense for a decade or more.

If you look at the Redskins over the last 20 years, who has been a real star in key positions? Sean Taylor? Who else? We donít need a bunch of position fillers. We need someone who transforms the team. If you have a chance to draft Chase Young - you take it and run! If you can draft an Aaron Rodgers, or Peyton Manning, etc you take it and youíll be a contender for the next 15 years.

I donít know if Haskins is the future. Itís IMPOSSIBLE to determine right now. The new HC will have the most important choice of his tenure with this first round draft pick. Itís HARD to fail so badly to get a top 3 or top 5 draft pick. Youíve GOT to make that pick count. If youíre going to draft for QB then that must be for a franchise changer. I think itís TUA. To my mind this draft pick is either Tua, Young or Thomas. These are the only players who make a difference AND are decade-long players. Obviously, Tuaís injury is a big concern. But until his injury he was EVERYONEís #1 pick. Do we take him now? Stay tuned.
