It’s been reported that The Washington Football Team is considering playing two quarterbacks in their Wild Card game against the Buccaneers.
In the NFL, it’s often said that if you’re playing two quarterbacks, then it’s a sign that you don’t have a true quarterback. In this case, if you’re Washington, then you don’t have a quarterback healthy enough to play four quarters. Alex Smith has guided Washington to the playoffs, but don’t play him if you don’t think he can be effective enough on the field. Unless this is simply Washington trying to play mind games with Tampa Bay, this decision doesn’t appear to make much sense.
If Taylor Heinicke comes into the game, it’s hard to think that the Buccaneers will be too worried about him. It’s already hard enough quarterbacking an NFL football game, let alone a Wild Card playoff game. This strategy isn’t likely to work against the Buccaneers, and right now, there are too many unknown variables if you’re trying to pick a side in this matchup.
