Doug Gottlieb: “You want your rookie quarterback on a rookie contract to be good enough to win with. If he’s good enough, now you can build the whole team around him... That’s the DREAM scenario. Of course they want him to succeed, he’s just not good enough… Two different coaching staffs have noticed the same things – not athletic, and not able to grasp the deep concepts of the offense. His college head coach told you he wasn’t ready, Doug Williams said he wasn’t mature enough, someone on Jay Gruden’s staff told me they couldn’t figure out exactly why he couldn’t remember what he was supposed to remember, and now we’re two and a half months into a brand new coach whose only bias was what he saw on film in trying to evaluate you... You lived down to the negative reputation.” (Full Segment Above)
Listen to Doug Gottlieb explain why he thinks Dwayne Haskins lost his starting job with the Washington Football Team after making just 11 starts in two seasons.
Haskins was 3-8 as a starter, averaging 177.2 yards per game, and throwing for 11 touchdowns and 10 INTs in 13 total games. Haskins was ranked 18th in passing yards through 4 games in 2020, but ranked 32nd in the league in QBR.
Check out the segment above as Gottlieb details why Haskins simply just wasn’t good enough to be a starting quarterback in the NFL, and says there shouldn’t be much of a controversy attached to the eyebrow raising news that Kyle Allen will start at QB in Week 5.
