A quarterback missed the final snap on the field because he was too busy taking admiring pictures of himself with fans in the stands? When have you heard of such a thing in any league except a bush one? You might say: “Let’s not make too much of this.
The NFL is not the most serious endeavor in the world, and the 22-year-old rookie was just overly joyed because the Washington Redskins finally got a victory.” But it does Haskins no favors to soft-pedal this.
The fact is, the arbiters of NFL success — the grim, pressure-creased coaches and general managers who determine players’ fates — don’t take kindly to giddy carelessness by quarterbacks.
