The worst factor a rookie quarterback within the NFL can do is to imagine he’s going to win the beginning job by default. The second worst alternative he could make is to be happy with a season on the sidelines. Luckily for the Redskins, Dwayne Haskins isn’t doing both of these issues.

If, however, both Keenum or the staff general begin to wobble, followers are going to begin chanting Haskins’ title from the stands. Mockingly, it’s additionally a transfer that Gruden could gravitate in direction of to assist prolong his tenure because the staff’s head coach. If Haskins appears to be like just like the potential reply at quarterback then Daniel Snyder is likely to be inclined to let Gruden keep to assist his younger quarterback proceed to develop into his full potential.
At any price, Haskins’ present angle concerning the quarterback battle in Washington is sheer perfection for the franchise. His humble nature ought to endear him to his teammates and training employees. Extra rookie quarterbacks ought to be taught from the way in which Haskins is approaching the 2019 season.
