L. A. story: Redskins slated to play in Coliseum twice in 2017

It’s nearly a done deal. The St. Louis Rams are now the Los Angeles Rams and it seems to be a matter of only a few months until the Chargers head up north and join them in Inglewood.

Even though sharing a stadium with Rams owner Stan Kroenke was not Alex Spanos, the owner of the Chargers, really wants to do—he had signed up to share a stadium with the Raiders in Carson, California—the money will be too much to walk away from.

The Rams-Chargers pairing works well for stability in the NFL’s divisional setup. The Rams will stay in the NFC West and the Chargers will remain in the AFC West. Had the Chargers and Raiders ended up sharing a stadium there would have been issues with having the same teams coming into town.

The new stadium in Inglewood won’t be ready until 2019. The Rams and, if they make the move, the Chargers will play in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum until then. That means that the Redskins will make two trips to Los Angeles to play in the Coliseum in 2017. The NFL’s schedule rotation has them playing at the Chargers and at the Rams that season. Washington plays both the NFC West and AFC West those seasons and it's the Redskins' turn to play those teams on the road.

Chris Simms: Why Dwayne Haskins has 'Big Ben Roethlisberger-type talent'

Chris Simms: Why Dwayne Haskins has 'Big Ben Roethlisberger-type talent'

It did not take long for Dwayne Haskins to win approval from the media and the Redskins coaching staff in a short amount of time at OTAs. 

That excitement from the Redskins OTAs has reverberated across the country and made him the feature of NBC Sports' Chris Simms QB School series. There, the current NFL analyst and former NFL quarterback made big comparisons to the No. 15 overall pick Haskins to Super Bowl champion Ben Roethlisberger. 

Simms was enthralled with the skillset that Haskins possesses and his potential. Citing his arm talent and the small mechanics of the 22-year-old, Simms thinks he has all the tools to be a top-tier NFL QB.

"He reminds me a lot of a big Ben Roethlisberger with his style of football play. [Haskins] arm is special, there's no doubt about that," Simms said. 

Comparing a rookie QB to a two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback that has made six All-Pro teams is not too shabby. Roethlisberger has thrown for over 54,000 yards in his career with 363 touchdowns across his NFL career. They both wear No. 7, both played their college ball in Ohio, and both are known for their ability to hurl a football down the field. 

Some of the strong qualities of Haskins that Simms highlighted were his tight and quick arm motion, his controlled body rotation, and the accuracy down the field. At the same time, he pointed out that Haskins has a tendency to drop his elbow on passes, forcing his passes to sail high. 

"[Haskins] has Big Ben Roethlisberger-type talent and I know he's already wowed some people down there in Washington in his first few practices."
