Case Keenum has had much better games during his NFL career than the one he's having on Monday Night Football right now.

The Washington Redskins' starting quarterback has played about as poorly as possible in the first half. He's not the only reason Washington trails the Chicago Bears 21-0, but he's a major culprit.

Keenum is 5-for-10 passing for 41 yards and a pair of interceptions. One of those INTs was returned for a touchdown by safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Keenum has also fumbled twice, losing one.

All of this ineptitude has many Redskins fans clamoring for rookie first-round draft pick Dwayne Haskins. However, the Washington staff has been adamant about bringing Haskins along slowly.

Also, it might not be wise to bring him in tonight against a fearsome Bears defense that has been wreaking havoc all night.

Still, Keenum's performance indicates it is a matter of when, not if Haskins takes over this season in D.C.
