    Wanted to say this a lot earlier than now but after watching him sling the ball around the shoe. He has the more arm talent than any QB to ever put on the Scarlet and gray! His vision, touch, and ball placement are absolutely unbelievable at this stage.

    I am not 100% ready to go that far, but I just watched the game after recording it. From what I just watched, I thought he looked better than Burrow and JT. He really looked good. Makes his decisions quickly, reads his keys and progressions fast, foot work fundamentals are solid, arm strength is great, and delivers the ball on time and on target most of the time.

    Discount much of what you see when watching QBs with the black jersey on.

    Everyone can look back through this thread and see how much I love Haskins. He looked amazing today and throws a beautiful ball, but I honestly like Burrow the best right now. Regardless, we just got fodder for an argument that hopefully doesn't become relevant until 2018. I will just say for now that we have 3 really, really damn good QBs. Great game Dwayne,

    I think Haskins and Burrow are very very close, with Haskins arm being a little stronger. I think both are ahead of JT as far as throwing a ball. JT may be a better runner than both, Burrow is probably a better runner than Haskins, but I believe both Burrow and Haskins move the chains more consistently.

    Agreed on every point. Both bring different elements, but are almost identical in talent. Honestly, they might be better QBs from a talent perspective than JT. JT has the experience on them and by no means is his spot ever in jeopardy as long as he is healthy. But the guys behind him can toss it pretty damn well.

    Agree. Some of his passes had the perfect touch on them. Just beyond the defenders reach. He's going to be a good one.

    I really like his arm strength and quick delivery; definitely better than JT. With that said, Meyer's offense requires a QB that can make accurate read, and we know JT does that very well. I have not seen enough of Dwayne in this area, so when the coaches gains confidence in him doing that consistently, then he will be absolutely potent in this offense.

    Side note - I love how our TEs are getting open and thrown to...and catch them too! Let's see that in real games now :-)

    Nine years ago today, May 17, 2008, to be exact, 11-year-old Dwayne Haskins, hailing from Potomac, Maryland, visited Jim Tressel's Ohio State program in Columbus, Ohio.

    Haskins, who grew up idolizing Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith, declared his intentions to one day play quarterback for the Buckeyes.

    For some reason JT was able to play as a RS Frosh when Braxton went down, but we are to believe the guy that Urban said had the best footwork and fundamentals he had ever seen in a HS QB isn't capable? BS.

    If Haskins isn't game ready yet, I have to think it is more of a "mental thing" than a "physical thing". Maybe the game hasn't "slowed down" for him yet, he's having difficulty reading the defenses, and/or he's still learning when to "check off" to another play, etc.

    Im not buying it. There are true frosh that start for Power 5s every year. There is also an ENORMOUS difference between a true frosh and a RS frosh that has spent a year and a half getting coached in college and learning the offense. I am 100 percent certain if God forbid JT and Burrow both had season ending injuries, Haskins would be on the field. I don't think we all of the sudden would not be worth a damn because he isn't "game ready". I think we would end with the same record regardless, maybe better. I don't think we get beat any worse with Haskins behind center than we did last week.

    Yep same here... It's an insult to say he's not game ready. Absolutely insulting. As you pointed out JT probably wasnt ready in 14 but that didn't stop him from placing 5th in the Heisman

    Amen to you both. I think Urban is doing his best to defend JT to everyone outside of the organization. He's being a loyal coach, but being loyal to a fault. Cardale was benched in favor of JT and he didn't even lose a game, yet JT is looking worse than Cardale and getting every chance to keep his job. I would give Haskins every chance for reps in the next few weeks, but also loosen some of the reins from Wilson and allow him to start calling more plays and installing more of his system. This is the 3rd OC under Meyer and the offense hasn't looked much different, I think Meyer is seeming to be more of the problem from what it seems...
