The Washington Commanders made one of the biggest coaching hires of the offseason, luring offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy away from the Kansas City Chiefs.
Now boasting a more prominent role as assistant head coach and offensive coordinator, Bieniemy wants to make sure he leaves his blueprint on the team right away.
He’s known for his intensity and going hard even during practice, and HC Ron Rivera claimed that some players expressed their concerns about that.
That’s why the former running back made sure to let everybody know that he’s well aware of the fact that he’s intense, but he’s not going to change his ways, per the team’s YouTube channel.
Bieniemy believes players need to get on the same page and not take anything for granted and get uncomfortable to be able to get comfortable later.
He knows it’s not going to be easy and that not everyone will love the way he works, but at the end of the day, his job is to make sure players are doing things the right way.
Notably, Bieniemy’s resume in this league speaks for itself, so it’s safe to say that his methods work, even if some guys may not be fond of them.
The Commanders have a promising roster with an interesting set of offensive weapons, and they need to make the most of having the architect behind one of the greatest offenses in NFL history.
This team has had a losing culture for way too long, and it’s about time things change once and for all.NEXT: Analyst Criticizes Players For Complaining About Eric Bieniemy
