3 instant over-reactions: Alex Smith not the answer for bad Washington team
3 immediate reactions: Alex Smith Not the Answer for Bad Washington Team originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
Washington benched Dwayne Haskins, started Kyle Allen and finished with Alex Smith, but no number of quarterback changes made the offensive against Burgundy and Gold any better.
Seriously, this crime was horrific.
In less than seven minutes in the fourth quarter, Washington had hit 103 yards and converted only two of eleven third downs. The running game was not available. Seriously.
By the end of the third quarter, Washington had left only eight rushes behind. Through three quarters.
It was a terrible game played in terrible weather. While it was incredible to watch Smith return, it was difficult to see actual football.
Offensive line a mess - Washington gave up seven sacks and couldn't let the ball pass at all. Aaron Donald dominated as usual, but this was a terrible feat for Washington's offensive line.
Not All of Dwayne's Fault - The Washington offense had trouble making good games in the first four games with Haskins playing QB, and the same fights went on without him. Haskins didn't play well, but it's very obvious that he wasn't the only problem either. Allen played for most of the first half and Smith took over after that, but neither QB found a great rhythm.
Who starts next week? - Washington has a winnable game in New York next week, but it's unclear who will start at the quarterback. Is Kyle Allen Healthy Enough To Start? Did Smith start? Stay tuned.
