Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera appeared to put his QB, Carson Wentz, on blast.
When asked Monday to explain why Washington hasn’t been able to show as much progress as other NFC East teams, Rivera delivered a stunning answer.
“Quarterback,” he said.
Ron Rivera was asked why the other three teams in the NFC East are better than the Washington Commanders right now.
His answer: "Quarterback."

Rivera went on to say he didn’t regret trading for Wentz.
“No, I don’t have any regrets about our quarterback,” Rivera said. “I think our quarterback has done some good things. There’s been a couple occasions that he’s struggled, but you look at his numbers from yesterday and he was OK.
Fans reacted to Rivera’s wild comment about his QB.

Ok so, this is a terrible way to answer this question. Regardless of what he meant which I assume is that the other orgs had their qb's in the system longer but that's a terrible excuse. Again points to a lack of accountability https://t.co/N0BpbFE3uu

You just said everyone in your division has a better quarterback than you, then followed that up with you don't have any regrets about choosing Wentz. Rivera should get into Politics after coaching 😂 https://t.co/sFlYsca0vu

Saying this when the current starting QBs in your division are Cooper Rush & Daniel Jones is insane https://t.co/2Cq5LDcOAl
