Have a leading voice in the next Washington Commanders QB

Sam Howell’s encouraging performance in Week 18 against the Dallas Cowboys leaves hope more is on the way. But it would be a huge surprise if the Washington Commanders didn’t address the quarterback position as a matter of extreme urgency this offseason.

That’s why it’s vital for the organization to secure an offensive coordinator sooner rather than later. If Eric Bieniemy is the prize, they’d need to provide him with assurances that he can become a leading voice in choosing Washington’s signal-caller of the future.

Convincing Bieniemy to leave working day to day with Patrick Mahomes or even Lamar Jackson if the Baltimore Ravens’ interest is legitimate would be a tough sell. One that doesn’t exactly tip the scales in Washington’s favor.

How can the Commanders do this? By highlighting the importance of his opinion and the chance he’ll get to mold either a veteran or someone from the college ranks into an elite performer.

And who knows, the Commanders may even make a daring move for Jackson themselves if his contract situation isn’t resolved.

Getting Bieniemy into the building is the first big stumbling block. What comes next is down to those in the meeting, but there is enough intriguing talent on offense to work with if the right quarterback is secured this offseason.
