Last month, Washington Commanders assume their assigned positions on the throne of the NFL, and henceforth known as Washington Goods (they are playing like ass). There was a strong stench from there. The loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 2 created an avalanche. Now stuck under a 1-4 record and out of oxygen, Ron Rivera feels compelled to throw his quarterback under the team bus by blaming him for the Commander’s woes in 2022.
On Monday, a reporter asked Rivera the difference between Team…Bugs, Merchandise, and the rest of NFC East’s 4-1 team. Without hesitation, Rivera heartlessly dropped a packet of dye in Carson Wentz’s bag and forced him to take it down.
“The truth is this is a quarterback based league,” Rivera said. “And if you look at the teams that have been able to sustain that success, they can build it around a particular midfield quartet.”
Satisfied with Wentz, it’s a cop. Rivera’s answer is a continuation of Carson Wentz scapegoat industry. Wentz only wore Washington’s uniform for five games and he represented everything that was wrong with the organization. Meanwhile, Rivera won less than 40% of his 41 games as Washington Soccer Team coach/Commander.
That does not allow the front office to be absent. Since Rivera was hired, here are the names he has deployed in midfield starting in 2020: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Taylor Heinicke, Alex Smith, Dwyane Haskins and Kyle Allen. The front office hired Rivera and then refused to provide him with a franchise signal caller.
The Army drafted Chase Young in place of Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert to appease the first head coach about their defence, and have since offered no backup on how to fill that vacancy. As a result, Washington inadvertently mimicked the Panthers and Colts’ reliance on veteran contractors having a stopping distance to present on a side offense instead of drafting and developing a coveted rookie. would like. Every time Carson Wentz returns, you can hear the wheelhouse spinning for a spin of Russian roulette.
If quarterback is a dilemma for Rivera’s Army, the coach should make Wentz permanent as soon as possible. Rookie Sam Howell also won’t win many games in 2022, but he has promised in pre-season and at least Washington may know what they have in him as he plays to keep the Commanders out. reach of CJ Stroud and Bryce Young. Instead, they threw the cans on the street when Rivera’s self-defense skill came into play.
He’s coaching for his job and trying to win matches, not a safe draft position. He was unaware of his role in the Commanders’ situation. Even Washington’s defense was a mess. Rivera was hired for his defensive expertise. With so much talent at the back, however, Washington has fallen behind every year since Rivera’s debut season.
Through five games, the Commies were eighth in allowed points, 29th in DVOA defensive passes, and allowed 7.2 yards per pass. In other words, the Commanders have averaged 12 points in their last three games. Wentz is an easy scapegoat, but he and his disabled interceptions are a symptom, not a disease.
The Giants are winning with Daniel Jones in a non-WR attack. The Eagles are getting creative in their use of Jalen Hurts, which many skeptics consider to be the real QB1. The Cowboys won four in a row with Cooper Rush making picturesque serves. Rivera trying to determine who to blame is like watching OJ promise to find his ex-wife’s killer. The mirror is his friend.
