NFL World Reacts To What Joe Theismann Said Sunday
It’s not just Washington Commanders fans who seem frustrated with quarterback Carson Wentz this afternoon.
Former Washington quarterback turned NFL broadcaster Joe Theismann doesn’t seem like a big Wentz fan either.
While the home crowd openly called out Taylor Heinicke to replace the veteran call-up after he threw out a pick in the game’s first set, Theismann under-tweeted Wentz.
“Arm talent is way overrated,” Theismann said.
Wentz, of course, is known for his arm strength and physical tools, but hasn’t always translated those gifts into effective quarterback play throughout his career.
Going into today’s game, Wentz was just 2 of 5 passes for 13 yards and an interception. For his first tenure since October, he did not start on the right foot.
Cleveland leads Washington 3-0 in the opening minutes of the second quarter. The Commanders (7-7-1) currently hold the seventh and final spot in the NFC playoffs.
