Scott Turner Presser: “I feel like we’re getting better, but we’re nowhere near where we need to be.”

Scott Turner speaks to the media after today’s practice

Washington Football Team Offensive Coordinator Scott Turner talked about the team’s decision to bench starting QB Dwayne Haskins Jr. and go with Kyle Allen. Haskins has been making the same mistakes repeatedly which is a major reason he will now be sitting at #3 on the depth chart. He has “a little bit of a ways to go” in his development. They called plays that played up to his strengths, but there were a lot of ups and downs over the first four games of the season. They are going to “formulate a plan” to keep Dwayne Haskins engaged and growing in the offense.

“Sometimes it’s good for a guy to take a step back and see things from another perspective.”

Turner is very familiar with Kyle Allen from their time together with the Carolina Panthers the last two years. He said Allen benefitted from sitting back and learning in Carolina, before taking over as the starter for an injured Cam Newton last year. He also benefited from starting this year as the #2 QB, and these lessons can also apply to Haskins as he steps back and watches. Turner thinks that Kyle Allen will be able to consistently run their offense.
