    Agree on that second pick. In fact both picks were bad.


    On the sack I assume you mean the last one he took when both the SS and a LB came from his left side. We have very basic protections in but I somehow got into an argument about this play on Twitter after the game. I have only seen the TV replay of this so I reserve the right to be flat wrong (and I refuse to go break down tape from a first preseason game!)


    It looked like we were in a simple 'Jet' 6 man protection in which the line was sliding right leaving the LT to man up on their RDE and the back to pick up any additional rusher. The SS declared early as potential blitzer on our left so Haskins probably should have checked the protection to slide to that side. But we still should have picked it up. The T blocked their DE. Their DT was initially double teamed by our LG and C and both the LB and S rushed. So the LG came off the double team and picked up the backer. The back should have picked up the S. 


    The backs rule is work inside out on who to block. Because the LG initially blocked the DT I think he thought the LB was coming clean as well as the S and ended up blocking the LB along with the LG. The S came clean. I THINK Haskins expected the back to pick him up so did not throw hot or just throw it away. We had the bodies to pick it up.


    Regardless good play to watch over again for all concerned.


    Which is why we pay position coaches.





    Agree Martin, nice roundup.

    Thank you. Without you, I wouldn’t have been a Buckeye. I wouldn’t be a Washington Redskin. I wouldn’t be the man I am today. Without you guiding me, teaching me, holding me accountable, loving me, and supporting me, I don’t know where I would be. I’m a mama’s boy, through and through.

    You always say that, as a parent, you know you’re doing a good job when your kids do better than you.

    Thank you for setting that bar so high.

    Happy Mother’s Day.

  3. The Redskins want to improve Haskins' footwork. They want him to get comfortable dropping back from under center, something he didn't do with the Buckeyes. They want him to get used to resetting his feet under pressure.

    "With the quarterback, it starts with the basics," Gruden said. "He's a guy that didn't call a lot of plays in the huddle. So we're talking about breaking the huddle and calling plays in the huddle, and the snap count, getting guys lined up, going through his progressions, his footwork -- not only in the passing game but in the running game. There's a lot thrown at him. It's a long process, but he's a bright guy. I was impressed."

    No overlord here. Would just like it if posters are gonna gif bomb every comment they make, in every thread they post in, that they would have the courtesy to at least step up their gif game. Otherwise stop spamming threads with eye rolls and weak gif sauce. 


    The QB thread is destined for atrocity anyway. We all know this. 😂


    Gonna go on record, before I avoid these threads that annoy me, that Haskins will be in the Pro Bowl in year two. As an alternate, but who cares.





    Did you at least enjoy the complimentary music? 😂



    I really think He'll be great, just not sure how soon.....

    He was infrequently under pressure at Ohio state. The other comments are from others, the one I made is backed up, clearly, by pff. I don’t see how it’s possible to simply dismiss their analytics. Numbers are unbiased.



    HOLLA,, numbers serve those who choose to use them, when they choose to.

    I’m sure he could replicate what Niles Paul did for us but Harmon will need to add 20 lbs. If you want him close to the line, I think it better to have him in motion and then sit just outside a TE for run blocking or slip out for a route. This way he is ensured of matching up with a corner or safety who is similar in size. But,  I think Harmon will be better for us as a receiver and we should acquire a true blocking TE who can occasionally catch a pass. Niles Paul wasn’t terribly effective for us, although a fan favorite. 




    Niles was a victim of the injury bug,,,every time about to break out He got hurt....and then Reed happened, and then it happened to Reed....jeezus please bless this team with health.
