WFT. I'm hoping Haskins doesn't show up playing like WTF these last 3 games. I've been in the camp of 'the kid needs another shot (on a team that doesn't already hate him with a passion)', but it will be a bad look if he can't run the same offense as Alex Smith did after a couple of years out of the league and one glad to still be here leg.
Quick reads. Check it down to JD. Manufacture looks to Terry if he's healthy. If that's out, Logan Thomas yawl. Let the defense beast and don't put them in horrible situations with bad interceptions and/or clueless fumbles.
id say its still in washingtons control but um can they win another game? i didnt watch their game, did they get better as it went on?
it seems giants are toast. supposedly they still have a shot even if they lose to the ravens.
the key is washington losing to the panthers.
if washington loses it comes down to who wins between the eagles and cowboys. since the eagles still play washington id say they have the highest odds to win the east after washington.
giants scenarios are a bit crazy. even if they lose to the ravens if cowboys beat eagles and eagles beat washington the giants win it by beating the cowboys (if washington lost to carolina). seems like the most 2020 scenario. theres a few other weird scenarios where the giants win it.

Haskins is still bad, but the defense competed well and long enough where even the borderline incompetent Haskins was able to get them back in it. We missed an extra point, went for 2 after the next touchdown, and missed that as well. So despite putting drives together we were down 5, and 5 is hard to overcome with a QB who may have the worst pocket presence of any starting quarterback I've ever seen.
Nonetheless, I think if Alex Smith starts we find a way to win that game. And I also think if AS start against Carolina we DO win that game and effectively punch our ticket to the playoffs. I don't care that the division is bad and that the very best we could do is win one game in the postseason...this counts, and after the dreadful year it's been I'd be fully STOKED to make the playoffs with this young group. Would be exciting for the short term and having a lasting impact for the future. Chase Young, Daron Payne, Jonathan Allen, and Montez Sweat would each be the best D-lineman on most teams in the league, and after eons of futility we find ourselves brimming with first round pick stud blue chippers all along the front 4 who will be here for years to come.

good to see nothing's changed
"There were rumors, from 2019’s draft night on, that then–head coach Jay Gruden wanted to use Washington’s first-round pick on somebody other than Haskins, but Dan Snyder overruled him because the Ohio State star had gone to Bullis, the same prep school as the owner’s son (and Henry Rollins, too). Forcing a quarterback on a coach is right in Snyder’s wheelhouse"
