Redskins twitter feed:
7 starts, fearless, competitive, wasn’t overwhelmed, angst over him playing at all this year was silly, made steady progress, looking forward to seeing him in 2020. https://t.co/FwJ781dvuO— Kevin Sheehan (@kevinsheehanDC) December 23, 2019
Tough break for Haskins, but he absolutely did enough to be the undisputed No. 1 starter entering the 2020 season. The Redskins will presumably also need to add a backup between now and then.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) December 23, 2019
#DwayneHaskins over his last 6 quarters: 31/43 for 394 yds (9.16 YPA), 4 TDs & 0 INTs & has led #Redskins to 8/16 on 3rd downs. Had 3rd-&-1 23-yd run v Philly. Improving & impressing. Imagine if he’d been “red-shirted” as many wanted. And imagine if he’d started sooner than Wk 9.— Al Galdi (@AlGaldi) December 22, 2019
So far, today is going perfectly for the #Redskins' long-term health. Haskins is playing well for a second straight week, they are trailing and the Dolphins are beating up on the Bengals.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 22, 2019
If everything holds, Washington will go into Week 17 with the No. 2 pick.
Can you imagine if the Redskins score and Bill Callahan doesn't go for 2?— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 22, 2019
I know what this means for draft order, but.... Give Case Keenum a ton of credit. Very well prepared. True pro.... stayed ready and produced— John Keim (@john_keim) December 22, 2019
You're supposed to throw penalty flags on plays where QBs are high/lowed, but these flag happy fuckboys completely ignore this play because of the team. Typical NFL officiating— Tre (@Treg2Cole) December 22, 2019
I need to clarify something from my press conference. Dr. West advised me that I was done for this game. Dan Snyder who was in the locker room supporting me, told me I’ve got to listen to the Doctor. Looking forward to getting back healthy for Skins Nation. #HTTR— Dwayne Haskins, Jr (@dh_simba7) December 22, 2019
Daniel Jones just threw a touchdown pass that will ensure Chase Young is burying him into the turf for the next decade.— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) December 22, 2019
It really is incredible how badly the #Redskins need to draft a TE. No team spent more on that position this season but injuries to Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis were detrimental.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 23, 2019
Plausible neither is back next year. They need a play-making TE to go with young WR group.
Sims is your 2020 W1 slot. Next.— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) December 22, 2019
Did the Redskins have any wide receivers with over 30 catches last season? They’re gonna have 3 this season and guess what they all have in common?— #StevieFreePicks (@SteveDraft_) December 22, 2019

Terrific catch by Terry McLaurin, going up and getting it while getting down in bounds to complete the catch. Took a big hit at the end but picked up the first down #Redskins pic.twitter.com/mJA4M5pYhI— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 22, 2019
Beautiful job on the line switch here by Wes Martin. This can be tough for a rookie but he does and excellent job. pic.twitter.com/QabdRcSnVD— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) December 23, 2019
Holcomb gets absolutely pummeled by a TE here. This was one of his biggest issues coming into the league - getting off blocks and playing at the POA.— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) December 23, 2019
He did not do a good job at either on Sunday. pic.twitter.com/Q06nfVSxmk
Just a bad play here by Colvin. Bits on the fake screen and...it’s like taking candy from a baby. pic.twitter.com/ZG8RQg2EON— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) December 23, 2019
Haskins refers to him as “Dan” when other reports recently say he insists on “Mr. Snyder”. I thought that was odd yesterday— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 23, 2019
Just now catching up on my mentions from yesterday. Here's the thing: It doesn't matter if what Dan Snyder did was right or not. What matters is every potential head coaching candidate just saw a story about the owner being in the locker room.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) December 23, 2019
The story gets interesting when Haskins says Dan told him he wasn't going in, which we later learned was him merely backing up the team doctor.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 23, 2019
I don't think this is a bad thing.
Wasn’t able to watch Sunday’s game. Just saw the highlights: Steven Sims had a whale of a game. He is the type of athlete we’ve needed. Such explosion.— Sean Kennedy (@EatSleepRedskin) December 23, 2019
If you can take anything positive from the 2019 @Redskins is the "Youth Movement". The rookie class of '19 have really put their stamp on this team. Haskins, McLaurin, Sims, Harmon & others shows that this team has a bright future. IF you get the right HC in here & Allen is gone.— Mr. Pauly (@BigManPauly) December 23, 2019
Terry McLaurin (918) passed my boy @MrArmstrong13 (871) for No. 2 all-time in receiving yards for a #Redskins rookie. He’s eight yards away from breaking the franchise mark held by @GaryClarkInc (926).— Lake Lewis Jr (@LakeLewis) December 23, 2019

Callahan on Steven Sims: I see him being the slot receiver for the Redskins for a long time.— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) December 23, 2019
We have heard that the #Redskins have interest in various coaching candidates. There have been no reported interviews to this point. They fired Jay Gruden about two months before Carolina axed Ron Rivera. The Panthers are already starting formal interviews.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 24, 2019
This offseason will represent the biggest set of critical decisions the Redskins organization has had to make in many yrs. GM, head coach, numerous critical veteran decisions, a top 3 draft pick...The impact of what they do over the next 4 - 5 months will reverberate for decades.— BGObsession (@BGObsession) December 23, 2019
Perhaps #Redskins are privately doing interviews but if that is the case, who is running them? If Bruce Allen is doing it then he isn't going anywhere. Is Dan Snyder doing it alone? Or have they not started interviewing candidates yet because they plan on re-structuring still?— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 24, 2019
Interim coach Bill Callahan said he "absolutely" would like to stay on as the permanent coach. He said he hasn't yet discussed his future with the organization. One goal, he said, was "trying to bring back a work ethic into the program I thought was... https://t.co/pF9bkMmecD— John Keim (@john_keim) December 23, 2019
Finished my profile for all of the top tackles expected in this draft. Unless there is someone out there I’m missing, Jedrick Wills is the clear-cut OT1 in my opinion. He has some issues with over-extending and awareness vs blitz & he’s a little short, but he carries BIG PLUSSES— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) December 24, 2019
Trading down for a slew of picks will never be a bad thing. But if the #Redskins grade Chase Young as a Defensive Player of the Year type, they should take him. They have not had a first-team All Pro since a punter in 1996. That is 23 years ago!— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) December 23, 2019
This team needs game-changers.
"You need more than one player" You're right, so lets start by taking the best available player & then get other players after that.— I’m Dre (@MrDcSportsBack) December 23, 2019
The Chase Young v. Trade Back conversation on here is going to be annoying as shit the next four months, isn’t it?— Bieniemy | O’Connell 2020 (@FiftyGutBlog) December 23, 2019

I called Niles Paul to ask about an old Husker football game. Instead, he spent an hour talking about the depression, shame and isolation he feels in his first year of NFL retirement. “I’m fighting some demons.”— Dirk Chatelain (@dirkchatelain) December 23, 2019
Hale Hentges TD - Little Spider 3 Y Banana action! Typically the read is the fullback in the flat, but Haskins goes aggressive. Spots the outside corner trailing McLaurin in man, knows he has Hentges on the corner route. Hits it for the #Redskins TD pic.twitter.com/pSvAX0W7ZC— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 22, 2019
McLaurin had a touchdown and he knows it. He's pissed. Almost threw his helmet when he got back to the sideline.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 22, 2019
To me that says they got the exact look they talked about all week and Haskins looked to the other side instead. Still a completion, but 17's heated.
Callahan not going for it is still crazy to me. Regardless of the fact that it is always the right choice, the Redskins are 3-11 and have nothing to lose. Callahan is basically telling his team that he doesn't trust you to get 2 yards after driving 99 yards for the TD. Ridiculous— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) December 22, 2019
It’s gonna be an interesting week for the #Redskins. If they don’t fire Bruce Allen and have a new GM in place before next week, then what was the point in firing Gruden? They’ll have missed out on the head start of the coaching search they got from firing Gruden early.— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 23, 2019
For all the handwringing about Montez Sweat in coverage, the dude makes plays. He can tackle in space. Guys can't get away from him. That's a positive, even if you'd prefer him rushing the passer.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 22, 2019
The question is... we've invested so much capital into our defense (first round picks, large contracts). How are we THIS bad? #Redskins— George Carmi (@Gcarmi21) December 22, 2019

Are we sure that we want to let an NFC East team into the playoffs? I know it's in the rules that we kind of have to, but rules are meant to be broken, ya know?— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) December 23, 2019
Guys, all is not lost with the Cowboys' future.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) December 23, 2019
Just remember that they're back next year with a rookie head coach, a mid-range draft selection, a QB/RB duo that suddenly costs $50+ million, the most expensive OL in the league, and probably no Amari.
They'll be juuuuuust fine.
A #Cowboys source disputes the notion WR Amari Cooper was benched. Instead they wanted to give Tavon Austin a shot at the DBs because Eagles having hard time w smaller quick guys. They got in hurry up mode so they had to wait to put Cooper back in. “Rotation change, not bench.”— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) December 23, 2019
I know everyone is disappointed when they see lower and lower draft picks and while picking higher certainly gives you more opportunity there are tons of good players outside the top unless you are looking for a QB— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) December 22, 2019
The #Redskins now hold pick 2 in the 2020 NFL draft.— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) December 22, 2019
Unless the #Dolphins beat the #Patriots next week, that will not change.
Chase Young to DC?
Lots of options for Washington's future new HC and GM.
I don’t doubt Chase Young is a beast but I think the hype train may be getting off the rails for the kid, The #Redskins need lots of help, trade back get more picks and keep adding to the young nucleus— Mitchell Tischler (@Mitch_Tischler) December 23, 2019

Kitchens on calling a "trick play" on the crucial 3rd & 1 w/ 2:08 left in the half.— Roberto Shenanigans (@Rob_Shenanigans) December 22, 2019
But wait it gets better... Kitchens also said he "definitely" planned to go for it on 4th down despite being on their own 28 yard line in a 1-point game.
