Dwayne Haskins misses victory formation while taking photo with fans

AP

Dwayne Haskins was excited after his first victory as a starter. In fact, he was excited before his first victory as a starter was secured and missed victory formation.

While the team was running out the clock, the Washington quarterback was taking a photo behind the bench, grabbing the cell phone of a fan to document the moment.

Backup quarterback Case Keenum took the kneel down to end the game.

Coach Bill Callahan said they couldn’t find Haskins after Fabian Moreau intercepted Jeff Driskel.

“I think he thought the game was over,” Callahan said, via John Keim of ESPN. “I’m happy we won. We’ll address that.”

Washington kicked a field goal with 16 seconds left to go up 19-16, but Washington got the ball back with two seconds remaining on Moreau’s takeaway.

Haskins confirmed he thought the game was over, which is why he missed the final snap.

“I was so hype,” Haskins said, via JP Finlay of NBCSportsWashington.com.

  1. Not sure I am OK with this. I guess I can understand his excitement but something seems wrong with not knowing if the game is over or not and not being there when called upon.

  2. Well, it could have been worse…
    He could have done an Ezra Johnson and been caught eating a hot dog during the game.

  3. “”I was so hype”, brilliant”

    Dwayne has to know a complex playbook and make split second decisions on the field. He is undoubtedly more brilliant than some internet troll questioning his intelligence.

    So, you’re new to the PFT comment section. 🙂

  5. Missing the end of the game as the starting QB is akin to the guy streaking toward the end zone who slows down to taunt the opposing team and gets tackled short of the goal line. Dwayne and the Skins deserve each other.

    Dwayne, you beat the horrible Lions…..geez.

    True….but your 1st win in the NFL is special no matter who it was against.

  7. This level of glee by Haskins-Robbins was outrageous and childish – you’d expect a 10 year old boy to react this way – this fraud is a cupcake – a snowflake. He’s lucky to win this because he was awful once again during the game.

    This jerk has no professional football winning QB traits. Stop pretending, Washington. Draft a real QB with some talent.

  8. Haskins was 13 for 29 for 156 yards, zero TD’s and an INT.

    If he had been congratulating his defense for winning the game, I might excuse him. He did not win this game by his performance.

    The Redskins should bench him next week.

  9. “I’m so hype.” Glad to see that Ohio State education at work. Haskins and his fellow alum Cardale Jones, “Why should we have to go to class if we come here to play FOOTBALL, we ain’t come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS.”

  10. draft another qb…..
    apparently the genius that made that comment thinks you can just walk to a vending machine and select a nfl quarterback.
    do the country a favor and never vote

    OK, boomer

  12. I don’t want to bash this guy, I know he’s all excited. But he has been playing terribly, and then this. Dude just doesn’t seem ready not only from a football standpoint but also maturity. he’s got time but “out dueling” Jeff Driskel didn’t exactly impress

  13. He’s reportedly struggled to learn the playbook. He consistently overthrows wide-open receivers. His maturity level leaves something to be desired. The Redskins will waste three or four more seasons on this guy before realizing he’s a total bust and starting all over from scratch. I seriously pity Washington fans.

  14. Wow. Give the kid a break. At least you have ONE Skins player that actually seems to care about winning. The kid has a long way to go, but he showed a bit today. He barely had one full season in college and the NFL game is light years from the Big Ten.

  15. What if, the real reason this happened, is because Callahan botched the end of the game. Detroit should never have seen the ball again. What’s more, what if Dwayne wasn’t prepared, because they haven’t yet practiced the Victory Formation.

    I know it sounds crazy… maybe they didn’t think they were supposed to win yet.

    A poor analogy. One guy deliberately, therefor consciously, ‘slows down to taunt the opposing team…’ Haskins was totally unaware the game wasn’t over – he was celebrating the victory. Obviously a kid who had been feeling a ton of pressure and he got caught up in an overwhelming sense of relief. I’ m betting that the next time the Redskins win – I know, I know – he’ll act like he’s been there before.

  17. “”I was so hype”, brilliant”

    Let’s see how ”so hype” you are after the team fines you a few thousand dollars for doing something foolish and not paying attention to the game.

  18. The only ones who shouldve been celebrating yesterday should’ve been our defense for showing up all 4 quarters and also steven sims for our lone touchdown (on special teams at that). As a Terry McLaurin Fantasy owner..I was beyond irritated to see how many times Haskins overthrew a wide open McLaurin in the end zone. As a 31 year old with a beer belly, I could’ve completed that first attempt he missed him on.

  19. This wont end well. This guy shows no signs of being a team leader or a talented QB. Maybe he will grow and mature but right now he seems obsessed with himself.

  20. I Guess that’s how they raise them at Ohio state

    Speaking if which, when was the last time they had a successful in the nfl qb?

    Stay classy Ohio
