Start Your Engines For The WFT QB Corps Tuesday!

On Tuesday it is start your engines as an unexpected quarterback competition takes shape here with WFT. Yes, there are 3 quarterbacks under the microscope at the Park: incumbent starter Dwayne Haskins, youngster Kyle Allen and the comeback vet, Alex Smith.

The mythology is that Alex Smith is off the PUP list but still has many hurdles before he will see action.  This is mythology, people, as the tea leaves are suggesting that Smith will be a starter as some point this season.

To give entrenched starter Dwayne Haskins veteran leadership and help him get better as Smith heals, Washington outlets are proclaiming that Smith still has hurdles to clear to see the field. The only hurdle the Phoenix named Smith has to clear is now related to performance and make the team and rising up to the starting job.

On Sunday, when Smith was taken off this PUP list and activated, Smith was put under the microscope once again in his career, especially if he gets reps in practice.  Trying to get a promotion to be the starting quarterback: that is ultimately the life on any backup quarterback in the NFL.

Do we believe Smith is not going at 100% to become the starter here in Washington because he likes, loves, admires, is the best friend of Dwayne Haskins or Kyle Allen or both, heck no! With Smith’s contract, Smith is officially competing for the starting and backup quarterback job–in the film room, on the field, by the water cooler and to think anything else is foolish.

WFT, today!
