What is wrong with these guys at ESPN?
For whatever reason, they keep disrespecting Dwayne Haskins after he has passed away. His name should never be mentioned while you throw out your “takes.” If it wasn’t for Stephen A. Smith reminding him that Haskins was dead, who knows what Ryan would have gone on the say?
Awful Announcing caught the disgusting interaction.
NFL media members can’t seem to stop disrespecting Dwayne Haskins after he tragically died earlier this year. On Monday, ESPN’s Rex Ryan just added his name to the list.
Monday morning, during ESPN’s Get Up and First Take crossover, Ryan attempted to tout New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. And he did so by chiding Haskins.
“I also said Daniel Jones would be the second quarterback drafted when he came out ahead of this guy, this Haskins,” Ryan said, putting air quotes around the late quarterback’s name. “That everybody raved about, that I knew would struggle in the National Football League.”
“God rest his soul,” Stephen A. Smith quickly interjected. As soon as Smith noted that Haskins had passed, Ryan’s boastful demeanor quickly deflated.
“I know and that’s – I shouldn’t have said it,” Ryan added.
He’s right. He shouldn’t have said that, especially while patting himself on the back.
Sadly, we may never know why Haskins was on that freeway.
In the Florida Highway Patrol documents, investigators say after Haskins was struck by a dump truck in the middle of a Broward County highway in the early morning hours of April 9 — a Subaru Outback also “partially” hit Haskins’ body.
Officials released a diagram of the crash — showing what they believe were the two points in which the vehicles struck the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback
In the docs, investigators say a witness told them a third vehicle may have been involved as well.
