  1. The Haskins video breakdown was very good. The reason I have hope in Haskins is he passes the eyeball test. He has the kind of arm talent that leaves me feeling like there is no place on the field that is off limits to him. It would be a shame if he doesn't maximize his ability with a lackluster work ethic.
  2. What scares me more is Chase Young somehow ending up with the Giants because the Redskins drafted Tua or traded down. I'm talking literal terror. What if he is the second coming of Reggie White? And they let him go to the Giants?!!!
  3. I suspect Rivera will have some indication by draft day. If he doesn't select Tua, it's probably safe to say Haskins didn't disqualify himself at least not yet. For a fact, it would be no time for him to rest on his laurels thinking that the job is his now because he was drafted in the first round last year. I believe that would be a grave mistake. He could find himself riding the pine at the start of the 2020 season and beyond.

    What Offer Would Change Your Mind on Trading Down???

    Quinn didn't sound very believable to me about Stafford being their QB this year. It may have everything to do with not knowing if Stafford will be healthy enough to play as opposed to the fact that they are looking at drafting Tua depending on his health. Regardless, I would not do a trade with the Lions if they still have Stafford on draft day. They may actually want Tua with a plan to let him sit out until 2021. But I wouldn't take that chance if I'm the Redskins and I want CY.
  5. It would be foolish for a new coach to simply hand over the starting QB position to a second-year player with all of two games under his belt. He was not the focal point of the head coach (Gruden) last year, but virtually an afterthought. And it showed when he got a chance to start. This year is different however. He is being considered as the possible starting QB, so all eyes will be on him, unlike last year. For him to expect more of a commitment from his new head coach would be silly and a sign of continued immaturity. Haskins has to know he has to prove himself to Rivera and it starts with his work ethic based on a desire to be great and to be the starting QB. If he's not showing that prior to the draft, I can see them taking a hard look at Tua if he's close to being fully healthy.
  6. To be clear, I don't like your post...I love it!!!!! I have never been a person who believed the mantra "you can be whatever you want to be." At a minimum, you must have the requisite skill set to reach the pinnacle of that endeavor. To that individual, I would say "you can be whatever you want to be if you have the requisite skill set and if you put in the work." If Haskins puts in the work, his new coaches will see it immediately. Tom Brady has six Super Bowl rings mainly because of his mental aptitude through endless film study and probably endless questions to those who have gone before him and his contemporaries. He is a student of the game. He knows his offense and the other team's defense better than everyone not named Belichick. These are the types of people Haskins should be modeling his approach after to be the best version of himself. How high he goes is totally up to him and I sure hope he hungers to be great, because the great players add or improve something every off-season. There is no ceiling on knowledge and no limit to preparation with those who want to be great.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    If someone could assure me that Tua will be having a long, mostly injury-free career and will not be hampered at all by his hip injury, I would take him over Young. Then again, it would be nice if someone could assure me that Haskins will never be a franchise QB. Because if he is, I'm running to the podium with Chase Young's name on my card. Trying to figure out what to do with the #2 pick could leave one or two decision makers in a straitjacket.
  8. This season will be huge for Haskins. He must show improvement if he wants to be the Redskins QB long term. I think most would agree that Haskins has the arm talent. Very few will see what he may need most and that is film work and study which is not done in a weight room or on the field. He needs to be Kobe-like in his approach. Of course, he needs to relentlessly work on his footwork and mechanics. If if if... he has the requisite skill set, his level of success will depend on how much work he puts in on and off the field. Having that mamba mentality could take him to heights he never imagined and could make the Redskins contenders for years.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Personally, I'm not sold or unsold on Haskins, because he has started what two or three games late in the year and was never given any indication that he could possibly be a starter from the beginning. The young man was wanted by some and not so much by others in the FO which apparently included the head coach and he knew that. So, there are extenuating circumstances that limited his development and his success which included his own immaturity. Regardless, I would absolutely take an uninjured Tua over Haskins 1,000 times out of 1,000. But that isn't the situation. Needless to say, the decision makers have to figure out what the future may hold concerning Haskins, Tua, and Young and make a decision. For sure, Tua should not be dismissed as an option without any consideration, because that would be a gross dereliction of duty. A year ago I was hoping the Redskins could draft Tua and behold they have an opportunity to do just that. I wonder how many people saw that coming.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    This is my point. Did Haskins already show you that he is a bust or do you see the potential to be a very good QB? If you think he could be the guy, why would you draft another QB with a history of injuries in the first round? Tua is no more a guarantee than Haskins at this point, so we are back to hoping he works out just like we hope Haskins works out. If the Redskins had not drafted Haskins, I might have taken a chance on even an injured Tua over Young. But Haskins showed potential last year. Tua is injured and has had a problem with injuries since he has been the starter. And Young is a consensus can't-miss talent by the so-called experts. Of course, the Redskins should do their due diligence with every position in the draft. Any fan who loves this team should want and expect nothing less.

    If the Redskins hadn't drafted Haskins last year, I'd be right there with you. But they did. So you have to hope he works out and get this consensus all-world, best player in the draft edge rusher.

    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    Your analogy has not been Reed's reality. To use it more accurately, Reed has been unavailable to work in the coal mine the majority of his career due to severe respiratory issues with the last 2 years being the worst. It's considered insanity to keep doing the same thing expecting different results. The odds are extremely great that he will receive another concussion probably from his first big hit. Reed cannot help this team if he's not on the field and chances are extremely high that he won't be again this year. Their decision to release him would be both personal (for his well being) and business (so their money could be better spent). If he were my son, I would beg him to never play again.
  13. I could see him wanting to come if he was indeed a Redskins fan. The QB would probably target him a lot which should make him happy on a personal level. If being on a winning team is very important to him, signing with the Redskins will depend on how he sees the team going forward. Does he see them having a chance at success in the near future? If he doesn't, then the Redskins are probably not an option. But if he does... Reading some of these posts about Diggs, be very careful what you wish for because this team does not need a diva WR when attempting to change the culture if he is, in fact, a diva.

    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    What's sad is I think defenders target him due to his many concussions. It's as if defenders' approach are to hit him as hard as they can as opposed to wrapping him up and simply trying to tackle him. He has taken some vicious head shots in recent years. You know DCs are talking to their players about taking Reed out of the game with a big hit. I don't care about all that brotherhood crap some NFL players claim it to be. For many, football is a blood sport equivalent to a type of warfare. Jordan Reed needs to get out with whatever mental faculties he has left. He is a prime candidate for having a potentially very difficult life going forward if not CTE.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    Now that's a scary thought. The Giants could do that, but I doubt that they would...I hope. On second thought, if the Giants did that now either Burrow or an innumerable amount of very high draft picks fall into the Redskins' lap.
