Things have gone from bad to worse for Washington Football Team's second-year quarterback, Dwayne Haskins.
Since the start of the season, he has been shaky with his performance as the starter. And after his start against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4, Haskins was thrown under the bus by his own teammate on Twitter.
Undrafted rookie quarterback Steven Montez recently liked a tweet from a passionate Washington Football fan, who called Haskins 'garbage'.
It's safe to say that most fans also agree that Haskins simply has not been competent enough during his run with Washington.
Against the Seahawks, Haskins completed 38 of 55 passes for 295 yards with one touchdown and two passes. While he certainly made an effort to give Washington a win, it ultimately went in vain.
What is plaguing Dwayne Haskins?
Dwayne Haskins was benched and considered the third-string quarterback after his Week 4 performance against the Baltimore Ravens. He was placed behind Kyle Allen and veteran Alex Smith at that time.
After Kyle Allen's season-ending injury, Haskins was promoted to back up veteran Alex Smith, who has won four of five games as the starter. However, Smith strained his right calf against the San Francisco 49ers, rendering him unable to return to that game.
It seemed like the coaching staff wanted to be cautious with his calf, considering his horrendous injury back in 2018 on the same right leg.
With the playoffs around the corner coupled with Smith's questionable performance in Week 16 against Carolina Panthers, Dwayne Haskins could be up for another start. But his recent off-field issue with violating the COVID-19 protocol, again could give another QB like Steven Montez a chance to take the helm for Washington.Published 24 Dec 2020, 15:04 IST
