6 Commanders’ players who are having issues with coach Dan Quinn and other coaching staff over…..

The Washington Commanders look a lot different now than they did one month ago. Sure, the roster hasn’t changed yet, but beginning with new general manager Adam Peters and head coach Dan Quinn, Washington’s vision is beginning to take shape.

The day after Quinn’s hiring became official, we learned who would lead the Commanders’ offense and defense. Washington hired former Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury as offensive coordinator, while Joe Whitt Jr. followed Quinn from Dallas to be his defensive coordinator.

Quinn’s coordinator hirings drew praise from around the league.

From their responses on social media, some Washington players appear to be happy with the coaching moves.

Terry McLaurin will finally play in an offense that is extremely wide receiver-friendly. Kingsbury’s Air Raid offense will get McLaurin the most touches he’s seen in his NFL career, and the passing concepts create natural separation. While the Commanders still must get the quarterback position right, this offense will feature McLaurin, and if healthy, he’ll put up the biggest numbers of his career in 2024.

Speaking of wide receivers, maybe we got Jahan Dotson’s breakout season off by one year. Everyone predicted a Dotson breakout in 2023 under Eric Bieniemy. It didn’t happen for a variety of reasons. His numbers were down, and he played in every game. Dotson’s frustration was evident. Kingsbury will line Dotson up everywhere, and with Curtis Samuel expected to depart, Dotson could see more time in the slot, which will be fun in this offense. Is the 2024 season Dotson’s year? Well, it’s too soon to make that prediction, but we believe Dotson will establish career-high numbers across the board.

Let’s put this one together as a duo. During Dan Quinn’s introductory press conference, he singled out two positions: Defensive tackle and wide receiver. Quinn was probably confused as to why Washington didn’t get more from defensive tackles Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne. That will change under Quinn. Allen has already said he was excited about next season and playing for Quinn after ending the season frustrated over the constant losing.

Quinn is a defensive line coach by trade. He can take lesser players and find the perfect roles for them. Allen and Payne are stars. Quinn will find ways to help them reach their potential. Allen and Payne should be excited.
