9. Washington Redskins

Teams with young quarterbacks seem to be a popular trend so far, and it’s easy to understand why the Washington Redskins will be in attendance to watch Kaepernick on Saturday since their quarterback situation has been a hot mess all season.

First off, one can only imagine how different this year would have been if Alex Smith didn’t suffer that devastating leg injury last season since the veteran quarterback has proven to be one of the best in the business throughout his career.

To help get by without Smith, the Redskins acquired Case Keenum from the Denver Broncos in the offseason before selecting former Ohio State star Dwayne Haskins in the first round of this year’s draft, making it seem like the offense would be just fine in 2019.

Instead, Washington learned the hard way that Keenum is far from the answer under center, and like most rookie quarterbacks in their first season, Haskins is clearly a work in progress.

What makes this situation even more difficult for the Redskins is the team seems unsure if Haskins is even the right answer for the team.

Haskins certainly deserves some benefit of the doubt since Washington hasn’t exactly put their rookie quarterback in the best position to succeed, but also this may not even matter if the Redskins eventually believe they would be better off with someone else.
