    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Now im not saying that great mechanics are unnecessary. Im saying that if their was a hierarchy of skillsets for the modern NFL, Vision, Mobility, Quick Release, and ability to read a defense quickly are much higher. Mechanics take a back seat to them as if you can read the play, know which guy is open, and have the ability to get the pass off, you have a real shot at having success. You can have success in the NFL with those traits, and over time the mechanics can be worked out. Conversely, you can either read a defense, or you cant. There really isnt an in-between.

    The 1 superbowl win is more due to his inability to stay on the field ( among some other poor coaching and FO decisions). This is exactly why im adamant about keeping Haskins on the bench until we have adequate protection at the OL and TE positions.

    Kirk's career defining moment came after he criticized the media ("you like that") for calling him out for what was: Mediocre.

    I didnt feel like going through a gamut of qbs. But Big Ben is another good example. Bad mechanics be damned, he still put up 5000 yards last year. If anything, they failed last year more due to huge offensive losses (Bell/Brown), a terrible defense, a career worse season from Chris Boswell (65% accuracy compared to 100% this year), and gutsy 4th down conversions that didnt workout. The point was more that you dont necessarily need to have perfect mechanics anymore to have success as a qb. But you do need to have the ability to read a defense and accuracy, and the ability to buy time. I guess my point was that imo its ok to pride yourself more in vision than mechanics in the modern nfl.

    IMO footwork and mechanics arent as important in the modern NFL as the ability to read a defense, accuracy, awareness, mobility, and quick release. Guys like Mahomes and Rodgers have rewritten the book on how to control the game with this skill set. I dont think we need Haskins to have both feet set all the time necessarily, as Rodgers most certainly does not (although it would certainly improve accuracy). But he makes a good point in that you need to harness the power from lower body to throwing arm. Back-foot passes from Aaron usually seem to go where he wants it. Haskins is ready to start, but the team is not ready for him to start. The plan is for 2020 and not to jeopardize that. Trent Williams needs to be moved before the trade deadline so we can set up a team around Haskins going forward in 2020.
  6. A 1st, 3rd, 6th, Njoku, and Higgins is a great haul for the sum of its parts: 2020 Draft: 1st | top 5 pick 1st | mid round 3rd 3rd 4th 4th Combined with the acquisition of Njoku, that would give us a TON of options with our first two picks. If we tank our way to a top 3 pick, we could flip that for a decent haul and possibly come out of this with both Jeudy and Wirfs with ammo to spare. That would be incredible.

    Mahomes sat most of his rookie season behind Alex Smith; and that was with a great supporting cast. Haskins isnt going out there until atleast after the bye.

    The irony coming into the season is that I really though mobility and athleticism may be the weakest skillset that Dwayne brings to the table. But he has been far more mobile the college tape shows.

    That would give Alex 2 years of starting, and 2 years of high-end handcuff where he has shown an elite ability to mentor younger quarterbacks. I like Quinn, and Im ok with riding with him. I just see real potential with Sims and would like to find a spot on the field for him. Speed kills.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Ive been really disappointed in Quinn this year. His heads in the right place, and he's in the right spots. But he doesnt have the speed to get separation after the catch. I would start grooming Simms to be the slot guy going into 2020. At the very least, I would try him a bit at the position to see how he fares. Nothing wrong with more speed on the field.

    WHAT? Not a chance that a player the quality of Dwayne Haskins lasts past the 2nd round! I dont even feel like debating the rest of this because clearly you do not understand the cost of a high-upside quarterback, that has been groomed to play the position since the womb. And then to say we should have drafted a 3rd consecutive DL at #15 is mind blowing. Especially considering the highest ranked DL at #15 left on the board was Montez Sweat... Oh wait

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Alex was never going to start next year. He was brought here to start for 2 years, and be a high-quality handcuff going in to 2020.

    Its not about having all day to throw, but hitting receivers in stride. Ball placement is key in the NFL. His crossing route passes are elite and is a staple of the modern NFL. Upgrade the OL, get him another wr, and get a two-way TE and watch him light it up.

    I doubt they thought we'd be really good. Probably just the same ol mediocre team we usually are. We were fortunate to land Haskins at 15, and that changed things. Build a team around him, get real talent out there, and we will be set. This guy was born to play QB. Im not worried unless we throw him out there in an obvious losing situation. Im almost certain that Gruden had nothing to do with any of this at this point. The FO made a choice a last year to move on from him, but probably wanted to wait until after this year. Haskins has been working hand in hand with O'Connell and i would be absolutely shocked if he werent named the head coach after this season.
