Nine weeks into the season, rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins bought his first birth for the Redskins.
It was no longer incessantly terrific and moral the identical it was no longer incessantly awful.
Alternatively, Redskins intervening time coach Invoice Callahan is no longer ready to title the No. 15 grab within the 2019 draft the starter going forward. At least no longer yet, anyway. He acknowledged as noteworthy following Sunday’s defeat and reiterated his stance on Monday.
“He and I have not determined the relaxation at this juncture yet, so I will choose my time on that and leer at diverse diverse things because we now own bought a whereas,” Callahan stated Monday by strategy of team transcript. “Now we own bought time this bye week to return and leer at diverse diverse things, so that is the posture this week.”
Callahan was pressed thereafter with myriad questions on why he would no longer title Haskins the team’s No. 1, namely with the backdrop of a 1-8 campaign that’s been misplaced already for all intents and applications.
“I moral wish to be true inch that I wish to pick out out time this week,” Callahan reiterated. “Now we own a whereas within the bye to return and leer and evaluate and leer at ourselves — self-scout evaluate — leer at personnel evaluations. Again, bask in I stated, I am moral going to return to my normal assertion and settle my time and construct the choice subsequent Monday.”
On Sunday, Haskins was 15-of-22 (68 percent) for 144 yards with zero touchdowns, zero interceptions, an 86.2 passer ranking and four sacks sustained one day of a 24-9 loss to the Redskins. He did decently in a sport by which he clearly wasn’t requested to aid out noteworthy and the Redskins did small to nothing within the create of a 24-9 loss, future Hall of Fame running encourage Adrian Peterson emerging because the handiest offensive highlight for the team.
In his old two appearances, Haskins came off the bench and mixed for zero touchdowns and four interceptions.
Of route, Callahan did no longer convey to present Haskins his first birth earlier than the Bills sport unless it was inch Case Keenum couldn’t play on Sunday.
Hesitancy indubitably is no longer unique by starting Haskins.
Jay Gruden was fired sooner than he named Haskins the starter, electing to cross with Keenum after which Colt McCoy.
It’ll very well be argued that Keenum gives Washington a bigger probability to pick out out this season, but what extra or less argument is that for a team that on the least ought to peaceful be taking half in for the lengthy speed.
Drafted because the hopeful future franchise quarterback, Haskins indubitably hasn’t dazzled, but in fairness to him hasn’t primarily been given the time on the discipline to learn from his mistakes and work by them.
Week 11 will gaze the Redskins toe the line with one more squad simmering with struggles within the Jets. Or no longer it is a winnable sport for Washington, but additionally one apparently supreme to leer a promising rookie showcase moral how noteworthy promise he has.
“I mediate now we own a whereas here, now we own a bye week — we don’t play for two weeks — so I moral wish to pick out out the entire knowledge,” Callahan stated. “I wish to leer at diverse things on film, return into the self-scout and I moral wish to pick out out my time and convey the attach we are going to cross, the route that we are going to cross.”
