Commanders Finish 2022 With Back-Up Quarterback
The 2022 Commanders began the 2022 season with a victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The next four games would put Washinton in a tough spot, as they lost to the Lions, Eagles, Cowboys, and Titans. At 1-4, the team pinned their hopes on a turnaround. That's exactly what happened when the team went 6-1 over the next seven games. Closing out the season, the team lost to the Falcons, tied, and then lost to the Giants, 49ers, and Browns. Their last game of the season was a blowout victory against the Dallas Cowboys. That meant the Commanders would finish the season at 8-8-1. Sam Howell was tapped to lead the team in 2023, as the Commanders look for a new offensive coordinator. Howell started just one game in 2022, throwing for 169 yards and one touchdown. Carson Wentz has moved on from the starting position.
Washington Commanders Football History
It’s been a year of changes for the Washington Commanders. The team settled on the new name, Commanders. This will surely be a welcome change from the “Washington Football Team” and the Redskins, to be sure. Next is the roster rebuilding process. In 2021, the team finished the year with a record of 7-10 just out of Wild Card playoff game hopes. After playing .500 football over the first four games of the season, the Commanders lost four in a row. After the bye week, the team went on a winning streak of four straight, only to flip that and lose the next four games before finishing the season with a win against the New York Giants. There would be no playoffs this year, and the hunt for a new quarterback began as soon as the season ended.
The Commanders have settled on Carson Wentz as their starting quarterback for the 2022 season. The Colts traded Wentz for two third-round draft picks. Washington will pay Wentz’s 28 million dollars due, plus the five million dollar roster bonus. Wentz was a player on the rise in 2017 when he tore his ACL. He’s struggled to regain the magic he once had, and after one season with the Colts, he’s now a Commander.
The Washington Football Team suffered through a tough 2017-2018 season that saw them lose their top two quarterbacks to season-ending injuries- Alex Smith, and Colt McCoy(Widely considered to be the best backup in the league). They ended the season with journeyman Josh Johnson under center. There is no guarantee either will be ready for the start of 2019, so what did Washington do in the meantime?
First and foremost, Washington needed a viable quarterback on their roster who they knew would be ready for 2019, so they traded for Case Keenum of the Denver Broncos. As of this moment, Keenum is technically number one on the depth chart, but that could, and probably will change, if Smith and/or McCoy prove they are ready for week one. In addition, Washington added a trio of notable players in free agency-wide receiver Brian Quick for one season, cornerback Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie for one season, and safety Landon Collins for six seasons.
In the draft, Washington decided that taking the quarterback position year by year was not going to cut it, so with their first of two first-round draft choices, they added Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins to be their quarterback of the future. Haskins may not get the nod this season, but at some point, he will get the job and that will be the end of Smith, McCoy, and Keenum in D.C. unless one of them wants to stick around as the backup. With their second selection in round one, the Redskins beefed up their pass rush with DE/OLB Montez Sweat from Mississippi State. With their next two selections, they added depth and young legs to their skill positions on offense- wide receiver Terry McLaurin from Ohio State and running back Bryce Love from Stanford. With the next two selections after that, they added a pair of offensive guards- Wes Martin from Indiana and Ross Pierschbacher from Alabama. They finished their draft with outside linebacker Cole Holcomb from North Carolina, wide receiver Kelvin Harmon from North Carolina State, cornerback Jimmy Moreland from James Madison, and Jordan Brailford from Oklahoma State. The Redskins made a lot of moves this offseason to continue to improve their roster. Have they moved up to being the favorites in the NFC East?
