One day removed from Dwayne Haskins' infamous selfie that caused him to miss the Redskins' final play kneel down in their 19-16 Week 12 victory over Detroit, interim head coach Bill Callahan told reporters he was able to sit down and address the situation with the rookie quarterback.
"It was disappointing," Callahan said Monday. "I think it's an experience he'll learn from as he matures and understands it's a 60-minute game. It's never over until it's over.
"I think he was caught up in the emotion of the game itself," Callahan continued. "A youthful exuberance. I think it got away from him a little bit. But, I think he's fully aware that professionally, his mind should be on the game throughout the 60 minutes."
Callahan says Haskins will not be fined or face any team discipline for his actions.
"I think it's a great learning experience for him," Callahan said. "He'll learn more from it than any finable offense that you could ever give somebody. The message is pretty clear."
Haskins' selfie has been the biggest storyline surrounding the team over the past day, rather than Washington's victory and the first win of the rookie's career. Right tackle Morgan Moses came to Haskins' defense and didn't think it was that big of a deal. Former Redskins QB Joe Theismann was upset with Haskins over his actions.
But they all agreed it's a learning experience more than anything, and Haskins knows a situation like that can never happen again.
