Sam Howell time? NFL fans calling for Howell to make pro debut
Former North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell could be nearing his NFL debut.
The Washington Commanders lost 24-8 to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday afternoon, with starting quarterback Carson Wentz not doing much to help the cause.
While Howell was inactive for this game, he could receive starting consideration going forward. Wentz completed just 12-of-23 passes for 104 yards through 3 quarters.He ended up throwing for 211 yards on 43 attempts thanks to garbage time numbers in the 4th quarter.
Howell was a 5th round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. He’s also competing with backup quarterback Taylor Heinicke for a role on this team.
Here is some of the reaction from Washington fans wanting to see what Howell can do:

Is it Sam Howell season yet? It’s not all on Wentz, that offensive line is abysmal but Wentz refuses to move in the pocket… https://t.co/kw7bcuFv8t

Sam Howell might be worth a go for Washington

At what point do the #Commanders cut their losses on the Carson Wentz experience and put in Taylor Heinicke again. Or maybe Rivera will put in Sam Howell, who actually has potential to do something on offense. What a mess.

Sooner the Commanders get out of playoff position the sooner it’s the Sam Howell show. I for one hope for all of us (except other NFC East fans) it happens sooner than later

Carson Wentz isn’t gonna be the QB1 by the end of the year Sam Howell will take over eventually
