It looks like Haskins is not a good quarterback under pressure, at college he had a 90.4 passer rating with a clean pocket that dropped to 56.7 when pressured, and the primary reason for this is that he is not able to adjust his body to make throws under pressure. Basically, the guy can't throw the ball on the run but with no pressure he will kill you. This doesn't bode well for the NFL where he will be going up against monsters wanting to rip his head off every play. I'm beginning to think the Giants knew what they where doing when they selected Jones. Now with McCoy injured it looks like a certain 0-5 start for Washington with Keenum starting.

I read an article on the internet that stated the Redskins are the worst put together team in the NFL, scratched my head a bit. I know they are not great but there are some decent players on defense so not sure what the guy was going on about, I can only assume he was a Dallas fan.

I hear what you say about Haskins and being under pressure. That was the big problem that teams had with him leading up to the draft. Washington's o-line needs to be a priority in terms of strengthening it and/or keeping it healthy. When Dak Prescott started in his rookie season he was a top 10 QB and threw 4INTs only in the regular season, but he had the #1 o-line in the NFL. The next season when it had injuries, he fell off a cliff and Dallas went from losing a divisional playoff game by a FG, to missing playoffs altogether.

Washington are no-where near being one of the worst teams. To be the worst team in the comp you generally need to be weak in most areas. But Washington have an above average rushing game and D-line. These 2 strengths surely will keep Washington in enough games so that they can get at least 5 wins.

And funnily enough...
On August 14th (6 days ago), I said:Antonio Brown is back at training. For now. Who knows when his next dummy spit will be.
...Brown has filed a second helmet grievance vs the NFL.

Also to end. We've been talking a lot about our respective teams' QB battles, but San Francisco may have one very soon. Jimmy Garoppolo went 1/6 for 6 yards and 1INT yesterday. A week or so ago in practice, he threw 5INTs on 5 consecutive plays. For now he's the clear starter, but if he is mediocre in the regular season he has Beathard and Mullens in line to take the job.

I never rated that Jimmy Garoppolo anyway, as far as I am concerned he is where he is because he was Tom Brady's backup for years at New England. If I was the head coach of the 49rs I would take a chance with Nick Mullens and trade Garappolo back to the Patriots for a 1st round draft pick.

Adrian Peterson looks like he wants to keep his starting job, he looked good against the Bungles, especially his 26 yard run. Guice though who is now healthy will want his share of the carries and who is this Reynolds player I keep hearing about?

Miami have given up-and-coming WR Jakeem Grant a 4-year extension on his current contract. He's definitely one to watch this season. I didn't realise he was a 6th-round pick from a few years ago...

I don't think New England will need Garoppolo. Their rookie QB Jared Stidham has looked impressive in preseason. I remember back at the 2017/18 draft, you were telling me who the best-looking QBs for next draft were. You gave 5 names; one was Drew Lock, 3 were no-names who never panned out, and one was Jared Stidham.

As for that RB you're talking about...
Pick Analysis:
Reynolds was an honorable mention Division II All-American in 2018, a two-time team captain, and a three-time All-Region selection for the Bears. The three-time first-team all-conference pick proved himself an all-purpose threat as a redshirt freshman, starting five of 11 games played in 2015. He caught 12 passes for 115 yards in his first game against Assumption and continued to contribute in the passing game (59-494-8.4, one TD) as well as the team's rushing attack (30-182-6.1, two TDs) and on some punt returns (5-69-13.8). Reynolds became a breakout performer in 2016, leading the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference in rushing (185-1,189-6.4, 14 TDs) while still catching passes (19-163-8.6) and returning kickoffs (17-342-20.1) and punts (7-36-5.1). He was limited to eight games as a junior due to an injury (109-456-4.2, four TDs rushing; 29-410-3.6, five TDs receiving; 4-108-27.0 kick returns; 9-153-17.0, one TD punt return). He played in all 11 games in 2018, once again leading the way with 15 touchdowns on the ground (172-823-4.8) and three through the air (40-472-11.8). Reynolds continued to be a weapon on special teams (11-241-21.9 kickoff returns, 15-139-9.3 punt returns).

Strengths
Looks the part with broad chest, muscular arms and proportional frame. Versatility of skills is above average. Uses as both punt and kick returner. Finished with 46 career touchdowns. Smooth hips with fluid change of direction Runs with adequate pad level of thump into contact. Above-average tackle breaker. Proven talent out of backfield with three seasons over 400 yards receiving.

Weaknesses
Played lower level of competition. Never hit 100-plus yards over last six games. Average suddenness. Will need to play faster and make quicker reads as a pro. Best rushing season was as a sophomore. Can improve physicality and consistency as pass protector.

4.93

Preseason Week 1 - 9 carries for 21 yards (2.3 ave) & 1 catch for 5 yards
Preseason Week 2 - 5 carries for 25 yards (5 ave)

I don't think Reynolds will about for long, I have a feeling he's only on the team at the moment because the Redskins have 2 elite runners with injuries which nobody at tha moment knows if they will fully recover from them. If anyone is in danger of losing their job to Reynolds it is probably Samaje Perine. At the moment Perine is on the rooster because Jay Gruden loves him for some reason, from what I have seen the guy is an average 4th round running back.

Jared Stidham, yes, you are right he was more highly touted then his name just fizzled out. Looking at his stats now it looks like he passed on his final year of eligibility and declared for the 2019 NFL Draft which may be why he was only a 4th round pick and didn't go higher as he basically gave up a year of football experience. He played at a decent college in Auburn and his 151 quarterback rating is good so Belichick may have seen something in him.

- Dwayne Haskins went 7/13 for 74 yards
- Josh Rosen went 5/7 for 59 yards
- Daniel Jones went 9/11 for 141 yards
- Bengals rookie QB Ryan Finley went 14/20 for 155 yards
- Bengals rookie QB (another one) Jake Dolegala went 10/12 for 94 yards & 2TDs
- Ravens rookie QB Trace McSorly went 19/28 for 203 yards & 2TDs
- Unretired journeyman Josh McCown went 17/24 for 192 yards & 2TDs
- Cam Newton injured his foot after no Panthers QB exceeded 45 yards passing
- Patriots rookie QB Jarrett Stidham went 15/19 for 134 yards

Daniel Jones is starting to put up some decent numbers, 9 out of 11 pass completions is outstanding by anyone's standards. I wonder if he can do it in the regular season. I see public opinion of the the Giants picking Jones is starting to shift from mockery to good pick pick. Haskins on the other hand is still looking mediocre, I'm starting to worry he will be a bust and the Giants will have the last laugh. This is eerily beginning to look like when the Giants drafted Phil Simms in the 1979 draft with the 7th overal pick and the N.Y. fans were very vocal about their discontent for the pick of the unknown quarterback from Moorhead State. Simms rode the negative publicity and would go on to get two Super Bowl rings and be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Jarrett Stidham is quietly putting up good numbers as well, I wonder if Belichick will get him more involved this season once the Patriots have the game won under Brady.

To be honest, I would have expected better numbers from Josh Rosen as he has a year's NFL experience behind him.

Looks like Derius Guice is now healthy for the Redskins but there is now a question mark with Chris Thompson who was knocked out the game with a concussion. The season hasn't even started and the Redskins are picking up injuries to key players.

The media were very harsh on NY Giants and Jones because they knew he wasn't the best QB in the draft. I agree, but he is probably the least likely to be a bust. NY Giants know they've got someone who will have at minimum an average NFL career as a starter, and at best be a multiple Pro Bowl player with a ring or two.

While I'm happy for the guy potentially proving the doubters wrong to win a backup job, this is terrible news for the NFL. Belichick & NE had one go at grooming a young QB but let him leave, and surely if they do it again they wont make the same mistake. This could keep Belichick at NE after Brady retires, and the dynasty could go on for another decade...

Rosen only threw for 59 yards because he was on the field for one drive only. 5/7 for 59 yards is roughly 12 yards per pass. What I read though was that he lead from from MIA 1 to a touchdown 99 yards up the field.

I heard that Guice did well. They gave him 11 carries in his first game back as well. I don't think Washington will miss Thompson too much if he misses week 1.
