Redskins fans are notoriously confused this season. Torn between cheering for wins and hoping for the team to finally reach rock bottom so that meaningful changes will happen.
Enter: Dwayne Haskins, QB1. As if this season wasn’t confusing and polarizing enough for Redskins fans, there is now the added layer of a rookie quarterback in need of significant opportunities to develop.
Will Haskins be the long-term solution to the QB problem here in D.C.? Is eight games enough to find out? Should the coaching staff be holding Dwayne’s hand and limiting his exposure, or should they be pushing him to command and utilize the entire offense?
Should the team be “Tanking for Tua” or “Blowing for Burrow” or “Choking for Chase”?
Should an interim coach even be allowed to make decisions about what is best for a rookie, or should there be an organizational directive to prioritize his relationship and development with Kevin O’Connell? And do we trust Bruce Allen and Dan Snyder more than we trust Bill Callahan?
These are the questions perplexing a fan base in D.C. And they require a dose of reality, so here are this week’s Redskins Reality Checks.
