Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines with just 11 Sundays left under Week 1 of the 2023 campaign?

We are now one week closer to seeing the Washington Commanders take the field in a competitive setting once again. Just 11 Sundays stand between fans and an electrifying atmosphere at FedEx Field against the Arizona Cardinals - which is the first game without Dan Snyder's ownership crippling morale.

Until then, the news and rumors keep flowing. Among the stories making waves recently include Eric Bieniemy's energy, former quarterback Carson Wentz criticized, skepticism surrounding Sam Howell, and Washington being urged to go after Dalvin Cook.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Former Commanders QB Carson Wentz criticized

Carson Wentz has been keeping himself busy before another NFL opportunity hopefully arrives. However, his latest activity hasn't gone down well with most.

The former Washington Commanders' signal-caller shared his recent excursion to Alaska, where he hunted black bears. Wentz even deemed a picture with one of the deceased animals that fell under his archery bow worthy for public consumption via TMZ Sports.

"Got the opportunity to spot and stalk black bear in one of our new favorite places on earth— Alaska! Incredible trip and an incredible animal!"

This is legal in Alaska, obviously. But Wentz came in for significant criticism from fans and animal rights supporters for publicizing killing for sport.

To each their own, but Wentz was reading the room about as well as he did defensive schemes from the opposition last season before posting this picture to the masses.
