The decision to play Dwayne Haskins against the New York Giants was one of the worst decisions of the year, former Washington Redskins executive Louis Riddick said Monday.
"Dwayne Haskins going into that game was really one of the worst decisions I've seen so far this year as far as how people are handling young quarterbacks," Riddick said during ESPN's "Monday Night Countdown."
"Why would you put him in there under any circumstance?" Riddick said. "It reeks of an agenda, to me. OK, as far as saying, look, he's not ready to play, the team is suffering. You've heard all along going all the way back to the draft, about how there was dissension about front office wanted one guy, coaching staff wanted another guy. And that kinda thing right off that bat, do you think Dwayne Haskins doesn't hear that? Do you think he feels totally supported in this entire process?
The former NFL executive said Snyder needs to recognize this problem.
"Hey, look, you just right now drafted another franchise quarterback and he's being set up to fail. He should have never went in that football game (Sunday). You some decisions to make about your franchise going forward cause we were just (in Washington) and did it look like a fan base that was very happy about how things were going?"
