The EB Effect

https://www.espn.com/blog/washington...ith-commanders

'He's going to bring the intensity': New Commanders OC Eric Bieniemy making presence felt


Something that stood out from a recent Keim interview of Ron when discussing passing offense and EB , the development of ball thrown quickly out to playmakers with room to run rather than the big shots. Play action THEN develops not from the traditional meaning of run the ball-to-pass, but defense creeping up to stop short stuff throws and then get guys to run deep for shots.

Also EB told Ron immediately in his first discussions, he really liked the trio of Terry, Dotson and Samuel…that’s where the talent lies.

Doc Walker said it best last week, we haven’t known the what a dominant defense here in DC is until we see them actually playing with a lead. If the offense can score and the defense will be unlocked

Re: The EB Effect

I'm really looking forward to see how the offense plays. Yes, we have Howell who is still a rookie which could limit the offense but if EB calls plays that allow our playmakers to do most of the work, then the offense can be pretty fun to watch.

Re: The EB Effect

EB will have to be a magician to get anything going behind this ramshackle OL.

Two tackles that gave up 17 sacks between them last year, a center that looked poor comiing back from a bad injury and a left guard that couldn't even displace Turner or Norwell last year. Failed tackle Cosmi might actually be our best lineman.

Good luck EB.

Lol hope it's not this bad but hard to argue with you. Imagine a lot of quick developing plays to assist the oline.

Spot on. 100% When's the last time we've had a legit offensive and defensive coordinator at the same time?

He looked great Monday. Throws a good, catchable ball. Excited about what he can do for this franchise.

Re: The EB Effect

I'm still in the camp of let's pump the brakes on Howell just a bit. Let's see how things go once teams have some tape on him and this EB offense. There's a lot to like from him so far, his poise, his arm, etc. But let's not get too crazy yet.

I agree with this statement. But at the same time, the fact that Heinicke had to go and tell Rivera he should start Howell in the last and meaningless game of the season told me they didn't have a lot of confidence in Sam, which wasn't very encouraging. So what he's shown so far comes as a nice surprise to me, so I do feel some sort of excitement, to the extent of "he may be better than expected".

I don't think it was a lack of confidence in Sam. My read on that was that Ron is completely clueless on how to manage the QB position. Or he may simply have forgotten that his team had been eliminated from the playoffs the week before. Certainly, most of us must have seen that Ron was reality challenged to have started "Wince" Wentz against Cleveland. Ron is an admirable man but I don't believe that he has the awareness and judgement as a HC to lead this team to a championship.

Could not agree more with this. Great guy from all accounts, but not a great HC.

My understanding that the Wentz acquisition was influenced by Snyder. And it would not surprise me if the Cleveland decision was influenced by Snyder.

If you listen to Keim, the coaching staff always thought Sam had a promising future, but felt he needed to develop. Also, if Ron didn't believe in Sam, he would not have bet his job security this upcoming season and name him starting QB.

While he definitely has his faults, I'm willing to give Ron a clean slate and see how he does without Snyder meddling with the team. If Snyder was actively bleeding this team for money, you can bet he was back to his old ways of meddling with football decisions.

I agree with your assessment on Ron. But if they were loving what they were seeing in practice last year, wouldn't have they given Howell a shot earlier given the level of QB play we had ?
Anyway, they trust him know and that's what matters, I was just trying to say what we've seen in pre-season from Sam is a nice surprise to some extent because of this.
