How can new assistant head coach/offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy improve the Washington Commanders’ offense in 2023?

Eric Bieniemy‘s first press conference since joining the Washington Commanders only heightened expectations about what could come in 2023. The assistant head coach/offensive coordinator was articulate and made his intentions clear in no uncertain terms, which should hopefully transition well throughout the preparation period once OTAs arrive.

There is enough talent at the skill positions for Bieniemy to thrive in his new role. Something that could be the tipping point behind the respected figure finally becoming an NFL head coach in 2024.

Of course, some areas must be strengthened to attain Washington’s newfound lofty objectives. Fortunately for Bieniemy and those in power, they could have a huge sum to spend in free agency and also boast eight 2023 NFL Draft selections to bring difference-makers from the college ranks into the fold.

Bieniemy could completely shift the offensive landscape with full control. Here are four ways he can improve Washington’s offense next season.

Improve Commanders’ OL consistency

This all starts upfront for the Washington Commanders. Eric Bieniemy must find a way to make the offensive line more productive with their current options and any potential incomings between now and when the 2023 season begins.

Of course, this will be done through a collective approach. But there’s no doubt Bieniemy has a huge say given how the protection in Kansas City took a huge surge forward thanks to strong free-agent pickups and shrewd draft acquisitions.
