The Washington Commanders are off to a 1-4 start and headed for their sixth consecutive losing season and third under Ron Rivera. Asked why the Commanders are having such trouble rebuilding while the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys seem to have turned things around quicker, River simply said, "quarterback." He then explained that to be successful in the league you need to build around a specific quarterback.

This is more than a little unfair to Carson Wentz and Alex Smith said as much on Monday Night Countdown, pointing out that Wentz is fourth in the NFL in passing yards while the defense is allowing 25.6 points per game.
