.@WashingtonNFL @youngchase907 & @KCurl_2 keep showing up week in and week out. Game changing plays. This defense is capable of taking over games with the way they hit and create. Man I love watching this group compete. #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/omJWRPMM5d— Brian Baldinger (@BaldyNFL) December 29, 2020
Kamren Curl (10 starts):— Skins ♫ (@TerryMcLaur1n) December 28, 2020
60 solo tackles
Jeremy Chinn (14 starts):
67 solo tackles
I don’t understand how one of these safeties are a potential defense rookie of the year and the other one is unknown.
.@WashingtonNFL #TaylorHeinicke is my starting QB on @SNFonNBC to win a division title IF #AlexSmith isn’t close to . Can’t believe Coach Rivera as long as he did to make the switch. Defense is too damn good to waste. #NFCE up for grabs. #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/ujWmSl9VIc— Brian Baldinger (@BaldyNFL) December 29, 2020

Folks are being real extra about this Haskins situation.— Will Blackmon (@WillBlackmon) December 29, 2020
He’s not in trouble with the law.
He mad some bad choices in public & didn’t play well.
WFT wanted to see if could work out, and it didn’t.
They didn’t draft him, therefore his margin for error was small.
That’s it ♂️

EXCLUSIVE: Sources Detail Facts Of Rivera & Doug Williams Involvement In #WashingtonFootball Release Of QB #DwayneHaskins - with quotes from Exec Williams https://t.co/JRcqFvEmEl via @russellmania621 at @SInow— fishsports (@fishsports) December 29, 2020
Some of you asked me about this. Was told same as Chris earlier: not what happened. As senior VP of player development, Doug does not get involved in football matters/decisions anymore. https://t.co/1fQBPgVK69— John Keim (@john_keim) December 29, 2020
The aftermath, in @TheAthleticDC:— David Aldridge (@davidaldridgedc) December 29, 2020
•By releasing Dwayne Haskins, Ron Rivera settled the last of the unsettled business he inherited from Dan Snyder, and can now speak forcefully about the future, per @BenStandig: https://t.co/NB5tIksRN2
I’m sorry, at some point Doug’s credibility is gonna run out here if it hasn’t already. Same guy that vouched for Guice’s character https://t.co/kBOgntNw1p— I’m Dre (@MrDcSportsBack) December 28, 2020
In the wake of his release, Dwayne Haskins is undoubtedly responsible for much of his demise, but @judybattista says the Washington culture that drafted him 15th overall shares in the big-picture blame.https://t.co/CfVocrhwJi pic.twitter.com/utvepnU6yM— Around The NFL (@AroundTheNFL) December 28, 2020
Read a great article about how Doug Williams tried to warn Haskins about his situation changing with new coaches that aren't attached to him. How he messed up and redeemed himself a little only to take a huge step back by.@InstantRHIplay— Ashton Jeanlewis (@fb_playbook) December 28, 2020

"There's too many kids that come into the league that are entitled... and you haven't earned squat in the NFL.

Or do they know something about Alex?— Chris (@ChrisToTheHess) December 29, 2020
If I had told you Week 16 that Taylor Heinicke and John Wolford could and would respectively start a Week 17 do-or-die game for their teams...could you actually name the teams?— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) December 29, 2020
The Panthers blitzed on 25% of Heinicke's snaps. They rushed at least 4 on all but three plays. Yes, he had a dropped pick.— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) December 28, 2020
He also had 2 big-time throws and a 70% adjusted completion % with an avg. depth of target of 13.6. But ya the grading system needs a lot of work... https://t.co/a1uRHjWnoT
Basically what I'm saying is that this is now a Taylor Heinicke fan account and I won't accept any slander— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) December 28, 2020
this is a good reminder that someone out there was willing to trade for Jim Drunkenmiller, Cade McNown, and Brady Quinn.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) December 29, 2020
Might as well ask it to Broncos Country: would you put in a waiver claim for Dwayne Haskins?— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) December 28, 2020
He'd be due $1.8M in 2021, and $2.46M in 2022.
If he were available? A lot more than people think. https://t.co/ILMRVrK6im— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) December 29, 2020
Absolutely. He’d make this team a threat— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 29, 2020
We already had Stafford in Cousins. But Stafford is older and injured. Next.— guynameashley (@guynameAshley) December 28, 2020
Unfortunately it appears as though my time at The Athletic is coming to an end with my contract expiring at the end of the year. If anyone needs a Washington Football Team/NFL writer or analyst, let me know.— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 28, 2020
2nd and 7 here. Haskins appears to read the deep safety and sees him inside. Takes a shot to Foster outside, but the corner was on top of the route the whole way. Ball well overthrown. pic.twitter.com/YKBnXVOnsv— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 28, 2020
One of the more athletic plays Haskins has made in Washington. Scrambles left and finds Steven Sims down the sideline for a nice catch. He potentially could have hit the corner-stop to Cam Sims in rhythm with his drop, but still made the play a positive. pic.twitter.com/DVNggBeS6D— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 28, 2020
Haskins mechanics let him down again here. Panthers bring a sim pressure with a LB blitzing from the right while the back side DE drops into coverage. Washington slides away from LB, leaves him free. Haskins doesn't get feet set, misses the hot throw to Gibson. pic.twitter.com/WVLrwYlmJp— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 28, 2020
The Haskins all-22 wasn't great to watch back, but the Antonio Gibson All-22 was a lot of fun. He's improved a lot since the start of the year. Expecting him to continue to get better too. If Washington can retain Scherff & Roullier, they have a foundation being built up front— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) December 28, 2020
And now we see the customary flood of "well OF COURSE he wasn't gonna work out because XYZ" reports that always come out AFTER a guy fails and gets released. https://t.co/DPCTxEJcqy— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) December 28, 2020
Imagine going into a game and these are your options at the most important position in the games. No disrespect to these guys but why don’t teams invest more in the QB2 spot. Not just money but practice reps to ensure the backup can play and play well. The NFL is weird with QB2s https://t.co/ukhlHYof2G— Bucky Brooks (@BuckyBrooks) December 28, 2020
The statement is a general one regarding why NFL teams don’t place a greater priority on the QB2 position. Why don’t QB2s get reps at practice yet we expect them to play well when the QB1 goes down? If we want the QB2 to perform at a high level, he should get reps, right? 1/3 https://t.co/XRGr2NWqJA— Bucky Brooks (@BuckyBrooks) December 28, 2020
There’s no other position in football in which the backup is not expected to be a contributor in some capacity. Special teams, sub-package player or developmental player with starting potential. QB2/QB3s are always held to the same standard on every team. That’s the point.. 3/3— Bucky Brooks (@BuckyBrooks) December 28, 2020
Bring me back up to Washington. Let me finish! Best of my life RN— Matt Jones™ (@mattjonesrb) December 29, 2020
The surgery that Rams QB Jared Goff had earlier today in Los Angeles gives him the best chance of an optimum result without a delay in return. The hope is he can be back for the postseason.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 29, 2020

In the wake of Ben Roethlisberger’s performance from yesterday, one note: The #Steelers measured his arm strength compared to past years and found it identical. His fastball is still there. And he’s in a good place health-wise overall. https://t.co/GC1U8CA777— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 29, 2020
