Which Washington Commanders robbed the team blind after another extremely disappointing 2023 season for the franchise?
After so much optimism throughout the offseason, it was the same old story for the Washington Commanders in 2023. A promising 2-0 start was swiftly followed by a pathetic run of form that eventually led Ron Rivera to a 4-13 record, a fourth-straight losing season, and his fate all but sealed in terms of being removed from the equation.
Rivera isn't the only one who underachieved over recent months. Players haven't met expectations aside from a few positives. The coaches couldn't develop their squad effectively. When things began spiraling out of control, the blame game officially began.
Big changes are coming. The staffing infrastructure and playing personnel are going to look entirely different in a few months. After two decades of nothing but misery, it's an exciting time for every Commanders fan around the world.
With that being said, here are five Commanders who robbed the team blind in 2023.
Andrew Wylie - Commanders OT
The free-agent signing of Andrew Wylie received mixed reviews from fans and analysts when the move was confirmed. His Super Bowl performance aside, it was an indifferent final campaign with the Kansas City Chiefs. But Eric Bieniemy felt the veteran could assist and provide some edge stability for second-year quarterback Sam Howell.
Sadly, this didn't work out. Wylie was a human turnstile for the most part. His performances improved slightly down the stretch, but it was nowhere near the level those in power expected when they spent decent money to bring him into the organization.
