Sam Howell, not liking the matchup he sees on the field calls timeout, heads to the locker room and drives straight home.
"I think it was halfway through the game, I was getting ready to snap the ball, I saw the defense in man coverage when I realized their guys were wayyy better than our guys. I mean we had NO chance out there. So instead of taking another sack I could go home and have an extra long bye week." Sam credits his coaches with giving him the confidence to make that judgement call. "You know, before the game EB reminded me that if you see something you don't like, you can always audible out of it." Although this move has drawn some criticism from around the league, it seems to be popular with veterans in the Commanders locker room. Terry McClaurin applauded it, "Now that's playing like a savvy vet, you don't see moves like that until year 4-5 in the league, so in my humble opinion he's lightyears ahead." Jonathan Allen chimed in, "We've been running the same plays week after week so it's nice that the kid tried something new, I just wish I thought of it after Tyreek scored his 3rd touchdown." The only Commander who didn't love the call was veteran backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, "Until we get a better Oline I'm much more comfortable giving advice and holding a clipboard, what was I supposed to do when we were down by 30 points at half?!" So how is the team going to respond during the BYE week? Head Coach Ron Rivera says, "We're gonna do our best to try not to lose during the bye in case we can still make the playoffs."
