Think of a way to acquire a franchise quarterback and Washington already tried it. Go all in on a blockbuster draft trade? They tried that with Robert Griffin III. Be patient and take a first-round QB when the right player is available at your pick? They tried that with Dwayne Haskins.
A new season starts Saturday.

For the next 10 days, at least, he is the franchise quarterback. Work on Taylor Heinicke’s long-term contract extension could begin over the long weekend. The season is saved after it was lost, and this undrafted math student from Old Dominion did the saving. That it took utter ineptitude from...
Opinion: Washington believes in Taylor Heinicke. Against the Giants, the ultimate Ron Rivera player delivered.
LANDOVER, Md. — Riverboat Ron chose to gamble, not once but twice. First in the offseason, and then again as Plan A went to pot just 16 plays into the season opener. The Washington Football Team’s head coach could have – and some would say should have – found a more experienced, or more highly-touted backup to starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick during the spring. But rather than sign a veteran in free agency, or use an early draft pick on one of college football’s best options, Rivera decided to roll the dice with Taylor Heinicke – the fourth-year, undrafted journeyman. The 37-year-old Fitzpatrick (himself a career journeyman) had all of the traits needed to help Washington contend, Rivera believed. And Heinicke, although still raw with only nine NFL game appearances to his name before this season, offered adequate depth and potential.
The Florida State Seminoles are looking for a bounceback game this week in a big way. After suffering a 20-17 loss to Jacksonville State, which was the Seminoles' first loss to an FCS team in program history, Florida State is now 0-2. Next up is Wake Forest, which is 2-0 and playing at home.
Liberty and Old Dominion are the only two FBS members in the Commonwealth of Virginia at the non-Power Five level. Virginia and Virginia Tech are members of the ACC, but the Flames and Monarchs are both relatively newcomers at the FBS level and still establishing themselves. The two programs have...
Taylor Heinicke earns first career win as a starter; Washington QB continues Cinderella story in the NFL
Taylor Heinicke is showing us that he’s not a one-hit-wonder. Earlier this year, Washington’s quarterback gripped the NFL as he went toe to toe with Tom Brady and the eventual Super Bowl champion Buccaneers, and arguably gave them the biggest run for their money as they were en route to a Lombardi Trophy. Of course, the only reason Heinicke was even starting in that game was due to then-starter Alex Smith being ruled out due to injury. Nevertheless, he played, played well, and opened plenty of eyes.
***Game of the Week:*** Draper (Utah) Corner Canyon vs. American Fork (Utah) Corner Canyon features major UCLA target Harrison Taggart at linebacker and newly offered quarterback target Devin Brown plus linebacker Micah Wilson and a host of other Pac-12 recruits and the defending state champs take on American Fork, which is where UCLA tight end commit Carsen Ryan plays, though he’s out with a leg injury in a matchup of unbeaten teams.
Now we’ll find out just how good Wake Forest really is, or perhaps just how bad Florida State is, when the two teams open their ACC football schedules Saturday at Truist Field in Winston-Salem. The Seminoles, though having played Notre Dame close in a season-opening loss, are fresh off a...
Moments after slamming his helmet to the ground, frustrated by throwing an interception deep in his own territory, Taylor Heinicke was back on the field. The defense had forced a quick field goal and left the Washington Football Team quarterback two minutes to redeem himself. It would’ve been easy for...
