Accost the Field — All Dwayne Haskins Everything

Accost the Field Ohio State Football Podcast Ohio State Podcast

In this episode of Accost the Field, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr shift the focus from Joe Burrow to Dwayne Haskins. What does this mean for Ohio State moving forward? How will the Buckeyes attack defenses differently now? Are we looking at two 1,000-yard rushers this year? Is this the beginning of OSU becoming an NFL quarterback factory? All of this and much more, including a review of Episode 5 of All or Nothing, as well as listener questions.

The Rundown

+ The 2018 season is a science experiment in the passing game.

+ Where will we see the most improvement in the passing game?

+ Last year, J.T. Barrett didn’t always trust something and the coaches didn’t always trust him.

+ Dwayne Haskins trusts his arm, but can he trust the receivers?

+ What this means for the running backs.

  1. Agree with everything you said, Andrew… and it seems you agreed with me as well. Unless you misread my comments, we’re on the same page. Shoulda kept Burrow.

  2. Burrow is the better QB and should have been the starter. I like Haskins too, but as Andrew said, Burrow is the better leader by far. It’s a shame Burrow didn’t stick around (although I wouldn’t have either), because then the Buckeyes would have two outstanding QB’s. If Haskins goes down, I’m not sure Martell is ready to play at a high level.

  3. The next head coach in 5 years will still be Urban Meyer. And why are some fans so sure that the staff made a mistake with Haskins over Burrow? The same reason they (me included) the staff made a mistake choosing C Jones over Barrett at the beginning of the season 3 years ago. Yes, Jones won a Natty and he should never pay for another meal in C-Bus. But then choosing him to start over J.T. the following September was a mistake that most fans recognized… as did the staff a few games into the season. Same thing here with Haskins and Burrow.

    1. Disagree Randy. What was obvious with J.T. is the same as what’s obvious with Joe over Dwayne – Joe is the better leader. I’m not a ‘bad fan’ wishing for Dwayne to fail but Joe Burrow is the better QB until Dwayne learns – if ever – to be a better leader. His interviews all sounded ‘me first’ where Burrows were polished and team-oriented.
      I wish Dwayne all success, I just trust my eyes and ears that Burrow was better.
      My thoroughly non-professional evaluation is that the Buckeye pass game will pick up some but there will also be more INTs and a bit more inconsistency – when it’s working it will be stupid-good, but when it isn’t we’re going to see a close loss or even a couple and the POSSIBILITY of another Iowa. We have new linemen and the last really good WR we had was Devin Smith – no offense to Michael Thomas who’s having an eye-popping NFL career so far, but he wasn’t all that with the Scarlet and Grey. Dixon and McLauren COULD make that leap but so far, nope!
      We also have no idea at all what the defense will be capable of outside of the line, that will help mask mistakes by the back 7 until we play someone good.
      Looking forward to the season as it’s gonna be a fun ride!
