“He Gets An A On the Group Project”: Commanders QB Taylor Heinicke’s Mediocrity Exposed Amidst Hatred Towards Carson Wentz After Big Win Against Eagles

The Washington Commanders ended the reign of the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles. In Week 10, Philadelphia was the last team with an unbeaten record. Washington forced four turnovers and dominated the battle. They also successfully challenged many questionable calls from their rivals. However, even after a great win, Colin Cowherd did not step back from exposing Taylor Heinicke.

“It’s one of those things last night. Consider last night like one of those things you did in high school or college, a group project. Four turnovers, 40 yards tone of possession, Terry McLaurin, and a great catch. It’s like a group project and Taylor Heinicke is really well-liked and he gets an ‘A’ on the group project. But he didn’t lead it.” Those were the words of Colin Cowherd, who is not entirely on the Heinicke bandwagon. Fans in the comment did not agree with the sports media personality.

There is no news if Carson Wentz returns to the field after missing the last four games. He fractured his right ring finger while playing against the Dallas Cowboys in a 12-7 win. Even though Wentz becomes available, there are huge chances that Washington will stick with Heinicke.

However, there are clouds of animosity surrounding the injured QB. Before playing for the Birds, the second-overall pick in 2016 played for the Indianapolis Colts. There, he played in a different system. This caused him to hold the ball for longer and when he had unreliable pass protection. As a result, he was sacked 23 times. But now, it looks like the Commanders are faring well with Heinicke.

The Philadelphia Eagles are no longer the undefeated team in the NFL. Washington edged out the Iggles with a huge 32-21 score. The Eagles were hopeful and happy when they were the only team who were 8-0. But against the Commanders, they were sloppy and could not make the game-winning plays that helped them throughout the season. Their performance was flawed. Whereas, the Commanders played methodically and turned drives into scores.

Taylor Heinicke, 29, completed 17 of 29 passes for 221 yards and a pick. But in the fourth quarter, the quarterback showed great football skills. The well-liked shot caller kneeled to take a hit. However, Philadelphia’s defense drew a penalty for unnecessary roughness. This helped the Commanders to win the game.
