Commanders must use motion to their advantage

One thing that stood out considerably within Andy Reid and Eric Bieniemy’s offense was their pre-snap motion. This was a great way for the Kansas City Chiefs to create mismatches, cause confusion, and put their primary playmakers in the best possible positions to excel.

This sort of creativity and movement is an absolute nightmare for any defense. If Bieniemy brings this mindset to the Washington Commanders, there is an embarrassment of riches capable of doing significant damage.

Allowing the likes of Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel, and Jahan Dotson the freedom to roam pre-snap, examining which parts of defenses to exploit, and executing accordingly is a mouth-watering proposition. All three players are capable of getting open at will, which is obviously going to make things easier for quarterback Sam Howell during his transition into a starting role.

How Bieniemy plans to use McLaurin, in particular, comes with a fascinating upside. The wideout continues to put up outstanding numbers despite no real consistency at the quarterback spot, so any upturn Howell can provide under such a prolific offensive mind is only going to benefit Washington’s undisputed No. 1 option.

The Commanders have something for every down, for every scenario where their skill position players are concerned. And if anyone can unlock their true potential, it’s Bieniemy.
