Dwayne Haskins Jr. Presser: “I feel very comfortable in a no huddle offense”

Dwayne Haskins Jr. speaks to the media after today's practice

Dwayne Haskins Jr. is excited for his return back to Ohio this week when Washington goes on the road to face the Cleveland Browns. He talked about playing with Denzel Ward in college when they were teammates at Ohio State. He also mentioned Browns defenders Miles Garrett, Larry Ogunjobi, and Sheldon Richardson. Haskins knows Washington are the underdogs on the road against the Browns.

“We’re going into their house. No one is expecting us to win, probably. And that’s good; we want it that way.”

Haskins talked about the need to improve, and trusting the play, not letting the last play affect the next play. He mentioned not coming off a progression to potentially make a bigger play. Haskins feels comfortable in a no huddle offense, but mentions it’s difficult to slow down when playing up tempo. He has to trust his progressions and have more patience.

Antonio Gibson also got a chance to speak to the media today. He talked about getting into a rhythm with his running style. He had more energy, and got a better feel for the defense last week against the Cardinals. Gibson said people underestimate his 4.39 speed because he’s a big back. He thinks the combination of the skillsets of Washington’s running backs can be a problem for defenses, he thinks they can be a “three-headed monster”.

Gibson is still adjusting to the speed of the game in the NFL, but said he was better adjusted last week and got better acclimated. He is also working on getting lower when running the ball. Terry McLaurin had to remind him to get his first touchdown ball.

Matt Ioannidis thinks the defensive line rotation has been solid and everyone has been contributing. They are still learning techniques due to the shortened offseason and change in defensive schemes. It’s a different style, vertical and penetrating. He talked about the lack of fans at games, and that it will be more likely defensive linemen will jump offsides because of the cadence.
