Joe Theismann believes Sam Howell can be Washington’s franchise QB

It’s been quite the year for former Tar Heel Sam Howell as he gets established as the Washington Commanders quarterback.

This season, Howell has impressed teammates, analysts, and fans with his tight-window throws that only experience QB throws. Despite being a fifth-round draft pick just a year prior, Howell has been looked at as the potential franchise QB for the future.

Many analysts have echoed the belief that Howell is the right guy to command Washington into a bright future, and now he’s picking up faith from legendary Washington QB Joe Theismann. When speaking with ESPN Commander’s reporter John Keim, the legendary QB explained his belief in Howell.


It was always a shock to see Howell drop so low in the 2022 NFL draft, so it’s nice to see his talent finally get the recognition it deserves.
