Commanders OC Eric Bieniemy has praised Sam Howell’s demeanor so far through Washington’s offseason program.
“Sam’s a very competitive kid,” Bieniemy said. “His demeanor does not change. … And I will say this: He autocorrects himself as well.”
It’s noteworthy because rather than taking a tough love approach and making Howell jump through hoops to earn the No. 1 job over Jacoby Brissett, it appears the Commanders are instead trying to build the second-year pro’s confidence and prepare him to be a leader.
