SJ - October 7, 2020

Life comes at you fast in the NFL.  Just ask Dwayne Haskins.  He went from a starting quarterback to a third string quarterback overnight.

The Washington Football Team announced on Wednesday that Kyle Allen will start Sunday against the Rams with Alex Smith serving as his backup.

From Pro Football Talk:

Kyle Allen will start on Sunday against the Rams and Alex Smith will back him up, according to NFL Network.

Dwayne Haskins, the 2019 first-round draft pick who started the first four games of the season, has been demoted to third string.

Some might focus be focusing on the fact that Haskins got benched.  Others, like me, are focused on the fact that Alex Smith just took another step towards getting back into a game after almost losing his leg.

He's only a few bad Kyle Allen plays away from it.  Fucking amazing.
