Commanders Earn Taylor-Made Win Over Packers

Taylor Heinicke might not have the most NFL-est arm in the league, but Taylor Heinicke certainly has one of the most NFL-est attitudes in the game. With Carson Wentz out for a minimum of four games, Washington’s backup quarterback took to the field on Sunday to try and win a football game. And did.

In true Washington form, fans were split down the middle as to wether or not they should throw any praise in Heinicke’s direction. The bottom line is that the Washington Commanders beat a Green Bay Packers team that almost nobody expected them to beat. Especially with a backup quarterback at the helm.

Commanders Versus Jaguars: Positives And Negatives In 28-22 Victory

The Washington Commanders came out firing against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and rode a hot start to a 28-22 opening day victory. Washington scored on their first two possessions of the home game for the first time since 1991. That’s not a typo, they haven’t done it since George Herbert Walker Bush was President.

They also didn’t score on an opening drive last year, until Week 13.

The Commanders may not have been perfect, but they gave the Fed Ex crowd plenty to cheer about, and did enough to come away with the win.

Here are some of the positives and negatives from the game.

Commanders Move Back, Then Take WR Dotson At Sixteen Spot

The Washington Commanders went into Thursday night, having just six picks in the 2022 NFL Draft. When the time came to make a pick with their first one, they struck a deal with the New Orleans Saints and added two more selections. Five picks later, they selected wide receiver Jahan Dotson out of Penn State.

The Deal

Washington surrendered their 11th overall pick to New Orleans. In exchange, the Saints gave up the 16th overall pick, as well as picks in the 3rd (98th overall) and 4th (120th overall) rounds.

Washington Eke Out Last Minute 34-30 Win Over Atlanta

Taylor Heinicke and the Washington Football Team saved their best for last. Washington scored two highlight-reel touchdowns in the final five minutes, to steal a 34-30 win over the Atlanta Falcons at the Mercedes Benz Stadium on Sunday.

For much of Sunday’s game it looked like Washington’s continued defensive struggles may cost them. Matt Ryan and the league’s third worst offense, still hung 374 yards on Washington. Ryan threw four touchdown passes, and was 25 of 42 for 283 yards.

Fortunately for Washington, Heinicke had other ideas. Playing in front of family and friends in the metropolitan city that he grew up in, Heinicke pulled a proverbial rabbit out of his helmet in the last five minutes.

Is Sims On The Block With The New Receiver Additions?

Washington entered  the 2021 Free Agency period with the goal of improving their stock at wide receiver. In a manner of days, they signed top prospect Curtis Samuel, and then added Adam Humphries as a slot receiver. They also added slot receiver DeAndre Carter for punt and kickoff returns. So where does that leave fourth year man Cam Sims?

Sims is just 25 years old, and is on a cap-friendly of $2.2M per year deal after signing his free agent tender in March. Adding to his lack of job security is the fact that he is a holdover from the last coaching regime – not the current one.

Here’s a breakdown of all of Washington’s 2021 NFL free-agent signings, and how some of the players are expected to contribute:

Updated: May 24th

Curtis Samuel, WR

The former Carolina Panther has agreed to a 3-year, $34.5 million deal with Washington, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Washington considered it a big need to get more downfield speed, and did so. Not only did they fill their number two receiver slot to pair with Terry McLaurin, they chose his friend and former teammate at Ohio State. Samuels can operate outside or in the slot, and offensive coordinator Scott Turner already knows how to tap into Samuel’s versatility. Grade: A
