Redskins not ready to turn to Dwayne Haskins yet

The Washington Redskins still aren’t ready to give the keys to their franchise to their first-round pick Dwayne Haskins.

Case Keenum threw for only 77 yards in their loss on Sunday to the San Francisco 49ers but after the game interim coach Bill Callahan made it clear that Keenum is still the starter going forward.

“We still have a lot of faith in Case and his ability,” Callahan said, via Ryan Homler of NBCSportsWashington.com.

The rain didn’t help Keenum’s performance on Sunday but he still clearly isn’t the answer going forward for this team. Even though Callahan is saying they still have a lot of confidence in Keenum a big reason why they might be sticking with him is the short week.

The Redskins travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings on Thursday night football. Making a switch at quarterback might be hard with such a short week. The Redskins will have an extended week after the Vikings game before they play the Buffalo Bills the following Sunday. If the team is seriously considering making the change that would probably be the best time to switch.

There has been a lot of talk that the team doesn’t think Haskins is ready to play and there has to be some sort of concern if a change isn’t made soon.

Haskins has appeared in one game this year and it wasn’t pretty. Against the New York Giants, he completed just over 50 percent of his passes for 107 yards, no touchdowns, and 3 costly interceptions.
