Jayden Daniels on starting week one: They said when I’m ready, I’m ready

The Commanders made it clear they were betting their future on quarterback Jayden Daniels when they made him the second overall pick in the draft last month, but there is still some question about when the future will meet the present.

Daniels answered that question during an appearance on the channel All the facts No brakes podcast with Keyshawn Johnson. Johnson asked Daniels if he expects to be the team’s starter in week one and the rookie responded that he is “confident in my abilities” while saying it wasn’t up to him to make the decision. Johnson pressed Daniels for more answers on whether he thinks the team plans to take him along slowly.

“From what I heard, they always said I’m ready, I’m ready”, says Daniëls. “So whenever I feel like I’m ready, I’m ready. . . . They didn’t say to me, ‘Oh, you have to start week one.’ They just said, ‘When you’re ready, you’re ready. When you feel ready, we feel you’re ready, we’ll throw you out there. ”

It’s hard to imagine that Marcus Mariota would show the Commanders enough to justify leaving the second overall draft pick on the bench, especially when Daniels’ ascension to the No. 1 job represents the start of what the current management hopes that will be a brighter era. football in Washington. That doesn’t mean Daniels is close to a finished product, but it should mean commanders let him figure that out on the field.
