Sam's Film Room: Is Dwayne Haskins worth the distraction?

Samuel Gold looks at the pros and cons of going forward with Dwayne Haskins Jr. at QB

After Dwayne Haskins was benched back in Week 4, he got another chance this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. Alex Smith hurt his calf, so Haskins started in his place. While the match did end closely, this was pretty much a one-sided game all the way through the third quarter. Washington was down 20-3 and even though they had two touchdown drives late in the game, it wasn’t enough to put them over the top.

In this video, I wanted to first talk about Haskins. I wanted to breakdown what I liked and what I didn’t like and discuss him overall as a player. The second thing I discussed in this video is what happened to the Seattle Seahawks defense in the second half. They allowed multiple long drives almost allowing Washington to come back and win this game if it wasn’t for two timely sacks by L.J. Collier and Carlos Dunlap.

This video is almost 12 minutes long. Sit back, relax, and I hope you enjoy it!
