    Canada+Haskins...Is this the plan?

    I had this in one of my posts under another topic. I'm asking the more knowledgeable posters on offense the the following:

    Is Haskins a good fit for what we thing Matt Canada wants to do offensively?????

    Would appreciate informed thoughts

    From what i know about Haskins, even at his best, he isn't good without a "clean pocket". He can make all the throws, but his brain craps itself when he gets pressure and/or has to move.

    If he can get his head right both on and off the field (which is a big challenge for a young guy) he could be solid. I feel like if he can hang around the league, he'll be one of those guys who is finally a good player once he gets to his upper 20's and matures...

    But can he? His 20+yd passing was beyond terrible this season (3 comp/24 atts) and not good last season (8 comp/24 atts). His completion rate in the 10-20 yds range puts him in the company of Darnold and Mariota.

    I don't think the Steelers are "planning" or counting on anything with Haskins. At this point he is a lottery ticket. I want to see the contract length. My guess is a 2 year deal. That way we have a #2 QB in 2022 if we let MR walk after 2021.
    2021 Draft- Would love to drop down 7-10 picks and grab an extra 3rd and then use that 3rd to move up in the 2nd.

    1/??) Asante Samuel-CB-FSU
    2/??) Creed Humphrey-C-OU
    3/87) Trey Sermon-RB-OSU
    4/128- Josh Kaindoh-Edge-FSU
    4/140) Stone Forsythe-OT-Florida
    6/216) Tre McKitty-TE-UGA
    7/245) Quinton Bohanna-DT-UK
    7/254) Tariq Thompson-S-SDSU

    2022 Re-sign Minkah and Watt. Grab a stud LT and ILB in FA. Trade up for a QB

    All that means is the Steelers own his rights. It does not dictate the length or value of future contract.

    so if Haskins were to make the team would he have to then sign another contract?

    Was just going to post the same thing. I don't think that you can use the words Haskins and plan together. Haskins is more of a low-risk prayer.
