Interesting list. Has Joe Burrow at 20, despite taking one NFL Snap.— George Carmi (@Gcarmi21) June 28, 2020
Had Haskins rated at 29, behind almost all of the other QBs in his draft class.
Alludes to a QB competition in which Haskins has to "beat out" Kyle Allen.
What are your thoughts? #Redskins https://t.co/RhUMDc2FKF
This one was called back, but a good glimpse of what Dwayne Haskins is capable. Play-action, steps up and out of the pocket to avoid pressure, fires a bomb down the field to Terry McLaurin #Redskins pic.twitter.com/TH3O02nw5u— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) November 17, 2019
Took a look at Dwayne Haskins' seven-game stint as starter last year, breaking down his numbers and tape to see what it can tell us about his future https://t.co/4XyW4XsWhk— Danny Kelly (@DannyBKelly) June 22, 2020
We’re sad to announce the passing of legendary Redskins coach, and leader of “The Hogs,” Joe Bugel. Our love and thoughts go out to Brenda and the rest of the Bugel family.— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) June 28, 2020
Joe Bugel, the great NFL offensive line coach for Washington who went on to serve as the Cardinals' head coach from 1990-93, passed away today. Bugel was 80 years old. pic.twitter.com/QsHDeoIVH5— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 28, 2020
Wow!!! Loved Coach Bugel. Coached me hard and gave me the confidence to go out and perform every week. https://t.co/oyJ5iUYcwW— Lorenzo Alexander (@onemangang97) June 28, 2020
Rest easy, Joe Bugel. You were one of the greatest offensive line coaches this game has ever seen. We always loved competing against your Redskins teams. You gave us hell, and I respected you for that.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) June 28, 2020
Joe Bugel was a friend as much as a coach. For those of us who had the privilege to know him we were blessed. He’ll have the best Oline in heaven. RIP Joe— Joe Theismann (@Theismann7) June 28, 2020

Former Redskins coach Joe Bugel died today, per team. He was 80. Bugel was an OL coach, OC and asst. HC, and he was with the team for its Super Bowl wins in ‘83 and ‘88.— Sam Fortier (@Sam4TR) June 28, 2020
Most importantly, he named The Hogs.

Since Matt Ioannidis was drafted in 2016, he has the 6th highest pass rush win % (14.6%) and pressure % (12.7%) in the NFL among interior d-linemen.— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) June 27, 2020
He's behind Aaron Donald, Fletcher Cox, Geno Atkins, Chris Jones, and Calais Campbell. That's elite company to be mentioned with.

Skins PR staff deserves a shoutout. Since they took over: Gruden was fired (a week later); worst season in a long time; Allen fired; Rivera hired; pandemic etc. have handled it well. @SeanDeBarbieri @_jessgowithit_ @charlieMule_PR https://t.co/4jgNZFLQyr— John Keim (@john_keim) June 28, 2020

Studying Daniel Jones is interesting. He is absolutely comfortable throwing with rushers barreling down on him...but the problem is that he never feels them coming in the first place. Very unique...problem I guess?— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) June 28, 2020
See no pressure, feel no pressure, fear no pressure.
This is why I advocated for a tackle from the beginning over Isaiah Simmons. Daniel Jones won’t get crushed by pressure that he can’t feel if there is never any pressure in the first place.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) June 28, 2020
Gettleman got that one right. Peart was just icing on the cake. https://t.co/rnZWa2eOGQ
Andrew Thomas’ Giants career should start out at ... right tackle https://t.co/X4Cfdel3z3— Paul Schwartz (@NYPost_Schwartz) June 28, 2020
Carson Wentz has played with 18 WRs in career:— Thomas R. Petersen (@thomasrp93) June 27, 2020
- 7 are out of the league
- 6 of 11 active are from practice squads
- DJax missed 15/17 games
- Alshon Jeffery missed 10/54 games
- The rest? Mack Hollins, Nelson Agholor, and Arcega-Whiteside.
Holy. Shit.#Eagles pic.twitter.com/RRDJbeC0zZ

Ive often hated this award because its so short sighted. Typically goes to a team that was really really bad the year before, had low expectations, a bunch of cap space to use, and a schedule that doesnt take the team serious usually leading to a fluke year— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) June 27, 2020
This is an award that really needs to be awarded four years after the season in question, once we see how the rookie classes and major free agents play out.— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) June 28, 2020
One of my long time goals for OTC is to devise our own Executive Of The Year Award based on such a four year view.

NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith tells @mackenziesalmon, "If our fans truly want football back, there is no greater exercise of fan loyalty than to engage in social distancing, wear a mask, wash your hands and do your best to mitigate the spread of this virus." pic.twitter.com/KhsF59Rtpe— USA TODAY Sports (@usatodaysports) June 27, 2020
whoever did the pr in the 90s about cutting open plastic six pack rings so they don’t choke animals did an amazing job and they should find that person and put them in charge of the wear a mask campaign— rachel syme (@rachsyme) June 28, 2020
