Ron Rivera Makes His Opinion On Quarterback Carson Wentz Very Clear

Ron Rivera

On Sunday afternoon, quarterback Carson Wentz threw an awful interception in the red-zone. The late-game turnover sealed the team's 21-17 loss to the Titans. 

The Commanders are now just 1-4 on the season and find themselves in last place in the NFC East. The three other NFC East teams, meanwhile, are all 4-1 or better. 

This Monday afternoon, a reporter asked Ron Rivera what separates his team from the rest of the division. He gave a one-word answer: "Quarterback."

Rivera clearly isn't a fan of Wentz right now. 

"The truth is this is a quarterback-drive league," said Rivera.

The good news for Ron Rivera is he can make a quarterback change if he wants. That's all in his control. 

The Colts are well aware of what Carson Wentz is capable of. Their higher-ups were openly critical of Wentz almost all of last season. 

The Commanders can bench Wentz for Taylor Heinicke or Sam Howell. Honestly, either might be an upgrade over the veteran at this point.
