Washington Football Team backup QB talked to reporters briefly after today’s practice. Dwayne Haskins Jr. is a great player and he is picking up the new offense quickly. Allen has more experience in the system run by Offensive Coordinator Scott Turner, but he said he hasn’t mastered it yet. Defenses are always adjusting, and the offense adjusts year-to-year. Allen likes Turner’s offense because it spreads the field, and gives defense another thing to worry about.

Says spreading field gives defenses "another thing to worry about."
Allen said there are some similarities between Norv Turner and Scott Turner's offense, but it's clear that Scott has put his own stamp on the system. He also said Allen does a good job of working his system around what his players do well.— Zach Selby (@ZachDSelby) August 24, 2020
Allen has more experience in the offense, but he wouldn't say he's mastered the offense. He said mastering an offense comes year-to-year, because defenses are adjusting to the system. It's almost like coming into each year with a clean slate, he said.— Zach Selby (@ZachDSelby) August 24, 2020
