Redskins’ Dwayne Haskins Is A Bad Player, Says Rob Ryan
Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins is a bad player, says former team linebackers coach Rob Ryan.
Haskins is one of the NFL’s more polarizing young faces. While some believe that he will eventually blossom into an above average talent, others feel Washington took him too early and that he will never pan out.
One of the people in the latter camp is Ryan, who previously served as a linebackers coach for the Redskins.
Speaking on the topic this week, Ryan said that while he did not personally dislike Haskins, he did not see a bright future ahead of him.
“He’s a good kid,” he said.
“He’s got a big arm, a lot of talent, but definitely not ready for the rigors of the NFL.”
Ryan did not stop there.
“He got a lot better from when he was thrown into games. I remember in New York, it was awful. He wasn’t ready. We threw him in the game and it wasn’t fair to the kid. He just wasn’t ready.
“So at least each week I saw him trying to get better. I saw him trying to meet with (former QBs coach) Tim Rattay, who’s a real fine coach now at Oklahoma State. He was trying to get better.”
In his last two games of the seasons, Haskins completed 31-of-43 passing attempts for 394 yards and four scores.
Is that a sign of things to come in his future? Time will tell.
