The quarterback troubles from the nation’s capital have been properly documented. No starter has manned the workforce for a majority of its video games for greater than three seasons in a row since Mark Rypien, who quarterbacked Washington from 1989-93. For the reason that begin of the 2018 season, 10 totally different quarterbacks have began a recreation for the now-Commanders, and none had any form of long-term success.

That led Dan Snyder and buddies to herald Carson Wentz, after swinging for a much bigger title on the buying and selling block didn’t pan out (extra on the place the most important goal landed quickly). The previous No. 2 general decide is again within the NFC East after turbulent stays with the Eagles and Colts, who individually most well-liked to go youthful and older with Wentz’s successors. That’s the vote of confidence Washington is on the lookout for.

Some, if not most, imagine Wentz is a band-aid till one other quarterback can develop to assist the workforce. Wentz is clearly delaying the inevitable if his play from Indianapolis exhibits up in Landover. Assistance is round. Wentz hasn’t had a receiver as gifted as Terry McLaurin round him ever. And the Commanders’ protection is underrated. They’re a steady secondary away from taking a good quantity of strain off Wentz, who clearly wants help in stabilization.

The largest factor serving to Wentz’s case is the shortage of different choices for the Commanders. Taylor Heinicke received his shot to be the workforce’s starter. Ron Rivera and Snyder felt snug sufficient with that prospect to commerce for Wentz. The workforce additionally drafted former North Carolina QB Sam Howell on this yr’s draft however he’s very a lot a long-term challenge.
