  1. The GM who drafted Ryan Tannehill remained in that position with the Dolphins until 2014. Apples to oranges to compare him to Dwayne. EJ Manuel, Josh Rosen, and even Patrick Ramsey are more apt comparisons. Because all of them were given up on when a new regime (that didn't draft them) took over.
  2. Amazingly, even Bomani Jones gets the main difference between Jones and Haskins...those who drafted Jones are still within the organization. Haskins, just like Rosen, does not have the same organization who drafted him.
  3. Dwayne Jr. shoots a text to well-connected ESPN analyst Louis Riddick, who had asked him to text him when he knew where he was going. Redskins. Riddick sends back a congrats text, triggering the iPhone’s colorful confetti response. Now we know why Riddick was insistent that Gruden set up Haskins for "failure". https://www.radio.com/thefandc/louis-riddick-jay-gruden-dwayne-haskins-failure Weird how Anthony Lynn wasn't accused of setting Justin Herbert up for failure though...
  4. https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/04/26/dwayne-haskins-redskins-first-round-draft-party-marketing-company-brand I have no idea how I missed this story, but man this is really something else.
  5. I will not ignore the issue in the league. I will point out that it has nothing to do with Dwayne Haskins or his benching. It boils down to one man: Daniel Snyder. He insisted on drafting Haskins at #15 (or even trading up to get him) and his football staff did not want to take him there (if at all). So Haskins comes in to a lame duck staff who didn't want to draft him, and then the next year a new coaching staff comes in who didn't draft him. It has nothing to do with the color of his skin. It has everything to do with the owner of this franchise.
  6. It's also factually incorrect on just about every level. For every Haskins, there is a Josh Rosen. For every Jamarcus Russel there is a Johnny Manziel. For every "work ethic questions" there is a Paxton Lynch. For every "football IQ questions" there is a Mitchell Trubisky. The way these guys are treated goes nowhere outside of their local coverage, so I could see why people have this perception. Same goes for Chase Daniel. Josh Johnson was in the league for 11 years on 10 different teams. Tavaris Jackson, Geno Smith, Tyrod Taylor (who is somehow still conning teams into st
  7. At what point will you start to reconsider the fact that maybe "the kid" was the one responsible for his undoing?
  8. Cooley and Sheehan have brought this up multiple times on Sheehan's podcast. They are saying that it had to be a way for Rivera to soften the blow of benching Haskins.
  9. I understand why people are upset at the seemingly double standard that Haskins has vs. the way Alex Smith has been treated. For one, we do not know what happened behind the scenes to cause Haskins to be demoted to 3rd string. Second, Alex Smith is just as much as, if not more, of the owner's pet as Haskins is. A very small part of me thinks that one reason Rivera insisted on keeping Smith out there in the second half was to show Snyder (who was rumored to have been pushing for Smith if Haskins was going to be benched) how terrible he is.
  10. That was John Beck against the Bills in 2011 levels of bad. It was RG3 against the Chiefs in 2013 levels of bad. It's also the same exact way he played when Peterson was stuffed and the opposing offense put up points early and often back in 2018.
  11. People are aware that Kyle Allen can be the best quarterback on this roster and also not be the guy going forward? Both of these things can be true. So why aren't you advocating for him to be traded so he can prove everyone wrong once and for all?
  12. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at the fact that with a win next week and a Dallas loss (playing Arizona), this team will be back in first place.
  13. What game were you watching and why was it a Chiefs game from 2017?
  14. Does anyone really want to see Smith under center ever again for this team? 2018 was an illusion.
  15. Haskins wasn’t going to play regardless because of the illness, but you will never convince me that he couldn’t have done better than that god awful performance by Alex Smith.
  16. So does Mitch Trubisky. https://sportsmockery.com/2019/10/former-qb-says-mitch-trubisky-may-not-be-smart-enough/ Or Johnny Manziel. https://brobible.com/sports/article/nate-burleson-johnny-manziel-work-ethic/ Or Josh Rosen. https://sports.yahoo.com/casserly-rips-josh-rosen-ethic-092648179.html Or Baker Mayfield. https://theundefeated.com/features/who-does-baker-mayfield-think-he-is/
  17. https://www.businessinsider.com/nfl-scouts-worried-about-paxton-lynch-low-wonderlic-2016-4 https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2703998-conflicting-reports-surround-paxton-lynchs-work-ethic-with-broncos https://predominantlyorange.com/2018/01/31/denver-broncos-paxton-lynch-officially-put-blast/ https://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/articles/paxton_lynch_says_john_elway_didnt_give_him_a_fair_chance_in_denver/s1_127_30797228 This isn't some new novel concept that only affects Dwayne Haskins or Washington. This is almost identical to the reports about Paxt
  18. Rivera gave Haskins the reigns to take the job and run with it....and he failed. Going to Kyle Allen (and potentially/probably Alex Smith) is not some "screw you Dwayne" move, it's a move to see if he has a quaterback on the roster right now that can help the team going forward into next season.
  19. Literally nothing was said about his attitude. It was poor preparation, sloppiness, and inability to correct his terrible mechanics or even work on them. If you think this is "slander", why aren't you advocating for Haskins to be traded to a good organization where he can prove everyone wrong and become a legit starting QB in the NFL?
  20. Apologies if this was already posted. New WaPo article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2020/10/08/dwayne-haskins-benched-washington/ But inside the team’s practice facility, momentum for the move had been growing, a person with knowledge of the situation said, in part because Haskins had fallen into poor study and practice habits. The person said Haskins’ lack of preparation was hurting him in games, leading to overthrown passes and missed opportunities to hit open receivers. The concerns represented a departure from the effort Haskins had shown in winning the
  21. That trade request tweet is from a fake account.
  22. I want the team to be successful. I don't want an influx of 49ers/Chiefs fans who invade social media (and this board) to talk about how wonderful Alex is and "all he does is win". 2018 was not a good season.
