1. The owner stepped in and forced him to be drafted
2. Jay Gruden felt forced to play Haskins in an effort to save his job since Haskins was Snyder’s guy (Haskins was not ready yet for NFL reps)
3. Rivera gets hired and Haskins was never his guy
4. There was never an explanation for his demotion to 3rd string earlier this season (I just assume it was Rivera trying to motivate Haskins)
5. If Alex Smith was healthy the last 2 weeks he would’ve played instead of Haskins
6. While they’re in 1st place in division (and in COVID world) he went to the strip club following a loss instead of doing anything else football or in-home related
7. Lost captaincy following strip club
8. Left stadium immediately after game and avoided media questions until he got home… and even then he was barely “answering” questions and had extremely low energy (the kid just seems to be mentally defeated when seen on camera)

Agree with the things mentioned above re: to releasing Haskins. I'll also add to remove a distraction while the team is vying for a division title.

I wish Haskins the best going forward.

Re: Haskins released

I'm glad this is over, now there won't be any more distraction and the team can 100% focus on the game this Sunday.

Re: Haskins released

This is culture change in action. Standards are a bitch sometimes, but they are the foundation of any legitimate organization.

Fucking love it.

Love the statement by Ron

I forget the article when he was hired, but the incident where he told the Panther team come together as a team or get the fuck out the way.

Re: Haskins released

What I also like about this move is the continuing reinforcement of the fact that Ron has absolute control over the team.

Re: Haskins released

Haskins cost the team yesterday by creating a distraction, he was given a chance to rectify the distraction, instead he played like he was distracted. So glad the distraction is gone. I could see Seattle/SF picking him up and try to rescue him.

There is no type of clause in there that says if we have to release him because of breaking team rules / league rules etc that we don't have to pay the whole thing?

Lifetime suffering Redskin fan and ODU is my alma mater. Heinicke was great at the FCS level, and became starter midway through his freshman year. As I posted on another thread, Heinicke has all the tools except one, and his size makes him injury-prone at this level, particularly with how much he scrambles. Thrilled to see a really good "kid" get a shot and as happy to hear that he was finishing up his engineering degree when Washington picked him up - should tell you something right there.
At ODU his sophomore year, he threw for 730 yards in a 64-61 win over New Hampshire (then a D-1 record). That was a game a helluva lot more people say they attended then actually were there - it was just spectacular.

@AndrewSiciliano
Washington has drafted 12 QB in the 1st round…

Only ONE has a winning record with the franchise:

HOF Sammy Baugh.
He retired in 1952.

I think that ship sailed when the team worked something out with the league to allow him to play, despite DH putting himself at risk of being exposed to COVID.

As much as I hate having his sorry ass count against the cap, I'd rather not have a distraction of the team fighting for money from his contract.
