The woes of the Washington Commanders at quarterback are well documented.
Since 1990 when they were still known as the Redskins, they’ve had more seasons with at least two starting quarterbacks than just one.
Sandwiched within their tenures is a revolving door of quarterbacks that robbed the team of stability.
That’s why since their last Super Bowl victory during the 1991 season, they’ve returned to the playoffs only seven times.
Included in that count is their 2020 campaign wherein they won the NFC East with a 7-9 record.
But despite the team’s inconsistency, wide receiver Terry McLaurin continued to deliver.
Terry McLaurin has averaged over 1,000 yards receiving in three NFL seasons and that's despite playing with 8 (!!) different starting quarterbacks. https://t.co/8VkkObBqjt

Pro Football Focus writer Ari Meirov tweeted, “Terry McLaurin has averaged over 1,000 yards receiving in three NFL seasons and that’s despite playing with 8 (!!) different starting quarterbacks.”
He posted this while quoting an earlier tweet wherein he shared that McLaurin agreed to a three-year, $71 million extension.
That deal makes him a Commander until 2025 and in the back of his mind, he too would like a quarterback that will hold on to the starting role for a long time.
It’s challenging for wide receivers to play with different quarterbacks because of their tendencies and throwing motion.
Therefore, having one quarterback should help foster a winning atmosphere.
The Quarterbacks That Played With McLaurin
McLaurin and the Commanders hope that Carson Wentz will be the quarterback that remains consistent for a long time.
