Should Haskins sit his Rookie Year?

Recommended Posts

The way I see it is that Colt and Case’s ceilings are Haskins’ Floor once he’s been in the league a few years.

The absolutely best Case or Colt could do in a season in my eyes - if everything was perfect but it never is - is 4000 yds and 25 TDs.

I think that’s Haskins’ Floor once he’s a developed starter in year 3.

Basically, at worst we have Kirk Cousins on our hands.

Those are lofty expectations. I hope he hits them.

I don’t think they’re that lofty. Most competent starters in the league now - top 20 in the league - throw for around 4,000 yards and 20-25 TDs a year. 

It’s a passing league as we all know. As we get a few more receiving options on the outside for Haskins that are better than the ones we have now or McLaurin develops into a near #1then it seems very realistic that Haskins will be at worst Kirk Cousins. But he needs the weapons to be that, that's not forget the difference in stats for Kirk in 2016 & 18 vs 2015 & 17 was the talent he had available to him at WR.

that his floor is Cousins. Basically, you're saying that Haskins floor is the best quarterback we've had in nearly 30 years.

If we can win with Josh Johnson @QB & an injury riddled team?

We can win with Haskins & a healthy team of week 1 of the season.

wut - JJ went 1-2 beating a bad Jags team.

Which again is an above average to good QB in todays pass happy league. The past QBs from decades ago doesn't matter in this instance, I'm comparing Haskins floor to today’s QBs.

And again, you're saying Haskins FLOOR is a good QB (Top 15). That's lofty and again I hope he lives up to it.

Why? He was the 15th pick in the draft and in mine and many people's opinion he was the best pocket passer in the draft. Louis Riddick certainly felt so. That's not a ”lofty expectation, ” if you take a QB top 15 in the draft you should expect them to be a top 15 QB in the league towards the end of their rookie deal. It's an entirely realistic expectation. Just bc the Redskins have sucked at QB for most of the last 3 decades doesn't mean that a top 15 drafted QB in today's NFL shouldnt be expected to eventually be top 15 in the league.

My true expectations for Haskins by his 2nd contract are much higher. I definitely expect him to eventually be a top 10 passer and on the cusp of top 5.
