Commanders special teams play is a concern

Another week, another botched snap from Camaron Cheeseman. It's been well-noted that he changed his snapping form this summer to try something new, and the results...not great.

After being saved by a tremendous hold from Tress Way last week, Chessman's snap played a hand in Joey Slye's first missed field goal at the Denver Broncos in Week 2. An ongoing concern and something that could see big changes if things don't improve.

Last week, head coach Ron Rivera said until "something happens," they will continue with Cheeseman. Welp, I think the time has come to bring in some competition for the long snapper.

Additionally, my concern level on Slye is trickling up a bit. Not only did he miss this first field goal, but he badly missed on a 59-yard attempt, which albeit wasn't the best decision by Rivera.

Slye did struggle with accuracy last year and given that the margin of victory in both games was under seven points for the Washington Commanders, the kicker might be called upon to win the game in the future. Can we trust him to do that?

Finally, seeing Marvin Mims Jr. find daylight for a 45-yard punt return was a bit of salt in the wound with the Commanders down 21-3. Therefore, special teams deserve some extra film sessions this week.
