QB Dwayne Haskins took all the first team reps with Keenum sidelined. Callahan said he’s starting to see growth from the rookie.

I just hope “growth” doesn’t mean “Snyder told me Haskins’ role had better grow fast if I want my bank account to keep growing.”

But I have my suspicions.

Forced on in relief of Case Keenum (concussion), Dwayne Haskins completed 3-of-5 passes for 33 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in the Redskins' Week 8 loss to the Vikings.

Haskins played the entire second half, but you wouldn't guess it from his statline. A deer in headlights, Haskins looked like he had zero shot at sustaining drives, and the Redskins called plays accordingly. One of the few times Haskins cut it loose, he immediately tossed a red zone interception. The air mail to a wide open Terry McLaurin came just two plays after the Redskins pulled off a stirring fourth down stop. It's easy to see why the coaching staff has been completely against starting the No. 15 overall pick. Haskins will be in a desperate situation if Keenum can't get cleared for next week's Bills road trip.

Said it in the game thread, if he's not ready mark him Inactive and have him sit and learn his 1st year.

Haskins gets playing time after Keenum's early exit

Quote

Dwayne Haskins took over at quarterback for the Washington Redskins to start the second half of their 19-9 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on "Thursday Night Football."

With Case Keenum ruled out with a concussion at halftime, the rookie first-round pick entered the game to start the third quarter down 13-6. Keenum had been 12-of-16 for 130 yards up until that point and fumbled in one of his two sacks taken. 

Haskins ended the night 3-of-5 for 33 yards and an interception in a game well within reach for the extent of his time under center. Thanks to the defense keeping the Vikings in check and RB Adrian Peterson running hard with history in his sights, the Redskins weren't out of it but the play-calling on offense was noticeably conservative with Haskins at QB.

Down a touchdown and with the ball after the Redskins forced a turnover on downs, Haskins had a chance to lead a comeback midway through the third quarter but the opportunity was squandered after a sailing pass to Terry McLaurin ended up in the hands of a Vikings defender. 

"It happened so fast," Haskins said about the interception. "I couldn't really step into it the way I wanted to but it came out higher than I thought. 

"I felt good, but there's room for improvement."

Haskins and the Redskins got the ball back only once after that as the Vikings kept the ball on the ground, scored a field goal to maintain a two-score lead, and ran out the clock effectively.

"I thought the read was right, I thought the route was good, I thought the play-call was excellent," interim coach Bill Callahan said about the crucial play. "You just gotta make a play and I think he will learn that. No question he would love to have that back." 

Callahan did say that Haskins would be the starter if Keenum wasn't able to go against the Buffalo Bills 10 days from now. Colt McCoy would serve as Haskins' backup. 

"We'll see," Callahan said. "We have a little time here. It was a Thursday night game, so we have time. I do believe Case is our quarterback but it's all based on how he comes out of the protocol."

He should have stay in college 1 more year. 

Not sure that would have changed anything and don't blame him for coming out, but you are right he did not look ready, particularly in terms of reading D and adjusting to blitzes. His O-line didn't help that a lot either.

Dwayne Haskins took the first-team reps in Redskins practice for the second consecutive day on Thursday.

Case Keenum (concussion) is getting in limited practices but has yet to clear the protocol. He is taking third-team reps behind Haskins and Colt McCoy. A complete nightmare in two spot appearances this season, Haskins would have an almost comically difficult matchup in the Bills were he to get the call. Haskins is a severe downgrade for college teammate Terry McLaurin.

Dwayne Haskins completed 15-of-22 passes for 144 yards in the Redskins' Week 9 loss to the Bills.

The Redskins had a very conservative gameplan for Haskins in his first career start. Adrian Peterson was given the ball on nearly half of Washington's offensive plays (what year is it?) and when Haskins dropped back to pass, most targets were at or in front of the first-down line. In terms of arm strength and accuracy, Haskins passed the eye test, but he needs coaching and personnel help to reach a ceiling. Neither of those needs will be met this season, leaving Haskins off the streaming radar in almost all matchups. The Redskins will head into their bye at 1-8, but they do get a matchup with the Jets in Week 11.

Haskins to start Sunday against the Jets after the bye and Keenum will be the backup per Albert Breer

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Dwayne Haskins is expected to start in Week 11 against the Jets.

Coach Bill Callahan has yet to officially name a starter but all signs point to the No. 15 overall pick getting another look after Washington's Week 10 bye. With their season officially a lost cause, it would make zero sense for the team to turn to 31-year-old Case Keenum or veteran Colt McCoy under center. Haskins attempted just 22 passes in an impossible spot against Buffalo in Week 9 but has an easier test against the Jets' defense following the bye week. Derrius Guice (knee) should also be back behind Haskins the rest of the season.

0 Interceptions against one of the best defenses in the league.  I consider it a success for him, especially after his last two outings.

Washington coach Bill Callahan said Dwayne Haskins will start for the rest of the season.

This was inevitable after Haskins made his first official start against Buffalo prior to the team's Week 10 bye. Case Keenum will officially stick as Washington's No. 2 quarterback with Colt McCoy backing both up as their third-stringer. In the short-term, Sunday makes the third rookie signal-caller to face the Jets in a four-game span. It's still a concerning move for fellow rookie Terry McLaurin long-term since the budding star recorded 25/407/5 in seven starts with Keenum under center and just 3/42 on Haskins' 44 attempts to date.

Everyone is pretty down on him and understandably so. He obviously has a lot of steep learning curve confronting him. How does everyone view him long-term in the dynasty realm?

I only care about Haskins to the extent of whether him starting means McClaurin has any value.    If he can actually stand in the pocket and read the field, I think he's good enough to find a wide open receiver.   The problem is that from what I've seen so far, he's had no pocket awareness at all and hasn't been able to give his receivers the few seconds it takes to get open.   Maybe some first team reps and extra work give him the confidence to step up in the pocket and make some throws.   He's got talent.   Hopefully the game slows down for him a bit.

Unfortunately, it's probably going to take more than one week of good practice for the game to slow down for Haskins.   Hopefully,. He just flings the ball often at Terry and gets lucky at a handful.

Not expecting much but was able to pick him up this week in one salary cap league. I’m just hoping he gets experience and figures out some stuff so he can get better in 2020 and beyond

Dwayne Haskins completed 19-of-35 passes for 214 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Redskins' Week 11 loss to the Jets.

The stat line doesn't paint the whole picture for Haskins, who missed passes and took too many hits in the pocket to get the offense in any rhythm. In particular, the rookie is having major issues diagnosing pressure and isn't athletic enough to get himself out of trouble, but he's also getting zero help from his coaching staff, offensive line, and receivers not named Terry McLaurin. It's simply not an environment for a rookie quarterback to succeed in. Haskins has another easy matchup with the Lions next, but expectations are low, even for a Redskins organization that hasn't shown much in decades.
