Commanders Head Coach Throws Support Behind Quarterback

The Washington Commanders fell to the New York Giants in Week 15, sending them back to fourth place in the NFC East, making their route to the 2022 playoffs that much harder, and for some fans around the league, it calls into question the starting Quarterback position in Washington.

For Head Coach Ron Rivera however, there's absolutely no question as to who the leader of this team is, as he threw plenty of support behind Taylor Heinicke over Carson Wentz, the veteran who went down with an injury after struggling early in the season.

While Heinicke doesn't look like an elite Quarterback, he's clearly the best option for this team, as they've played well under him over the past few years, and with 10 Touchdowns to just 5 Interceptions on the season, he's helping them win, so it makes sense that Rivera wants to stick with him as QB1.
