It was unreal hearing this. Brian Mitchell and Scott Linn were fully on board with this theory that Trey Quinn sabotaged Haskins.I haven't heard that bit of nonsense ... but what in Gods name would be the motivating factor in that scenario???
Honestly - throwing that ball there was a terrible decision. I don't even need to know what Quinn was doing (or was supposed to be doing) on that play to figure that out.

That pass still should never have been thrown, the LB was breaking to the ball in front of Quinn...Haskins threw it into double coverage.It was unreal hearing this. Brian Mitchell and Scott Linn were fully on board with this theory that Trey Quinn sabotaged Haskins.
I've notices he tends to rely on his arm too much and doesn't always set up properly with his footwork. In fact, I think I saw the OC talking to him after a score or conversion, and going over something about his mechanics afterwards, so he's still being worked on about it.It's only been a few games so I amstill hopeful. There are worrisome things however: like repeated comments about poor postion when throwing, about not stepping into the pass...a whole bunch of stuff he got away with in college but not the pros. Those are fundamentals. I suspect that was what Gruden noticed also pre-draft.
Word is Alex Smith has taken him under his wing.There's got to be more to this. But for the o-line to go South on him after two games? Doesn't compute in my book. In true Redskins fashion, the details will eventually leak to the media.
Separate subject: saw some video the other day where the pundit pointed out that Haskins frequently doesn't see the field well and makes the wrong choice. This year he has a free pass - learning mode. Strikes me he doesn't seem to have a mentor on this team. I don't see or hear Keenum or Colt teaching him games or practice. Don'r hear of any mentoring from coaches either. Could be I'm not looking as much as I used to.
Every time someone is quick to judge, I remind them that as a rookie Peyton Manning was 3-13, completed only 56% of his passes, and lead the league in INTs with 28. Had he done that here, we would've cut him.This article fits in with the thread perfectly. Shows some stat comparisons for qb's in their first few starts and just goes to show that rushing to judgement isn't a good thing.
