Peter King rips Dwayne Haskins as 'Goat of the Week'

Insider

Peter King might be the most respected NFL writer in America, and in his famous Monday Morning column, he shredded Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins. 

In a column that is known more for insight and access, King named Haskins the "Goat of the Week" after his terrible performance in Cleveland on Sunday. 

From King: 

Dwayne Haskins, quarterback, Washington. WFT looked a lot more like WTF in the first half of an awful performance at Cleveland, led by the 15th pick in the 2019 draft and presumptive quarterback of the future. Haskins threw two picks in the last eight minutes of the second quarter, both leading to Cleveland touchdowns. The second was particularly egregious. Remember Malcolm Smith, the MVP of the Super Bowl seven seasons ago for Seattle? Well, five teams later, he’s a Brown, and Haskins threw him a pass like Smith was the intended receiver at the two-minute warning before halftime. Nick Chubb scored first, then Kareem Hunt, and Cleveland went into halftime up 17-7. Haskins got the lead back in the third quarter, but then threw his third pick of the day—again turning into a Cleveland TD—to lose the lead for good. In all, Haskins turned it over four times, and the Browns turned the gaffes into 24 points.

The loss in Cleveland was the worst game of Haskins' young NFL career. After the contest the second-year QB said he wasn't staring down his wideouts, though he might be the only person with that opinion. 

Regardless of the poor performance, Washington coach Ron Rivera said he will stick with Haskins at quarterback.
