Yes, I just gained a ton more respect for Washington Commanders quarterback Taylor Heinicke.
For those unfamiliar with the name, Heinicke played quarterback at Old Dominion University and was signed as an undrafted free agent back in 2015.
He’s been a career backup since he was signed, but started almost every game last year after original starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was down with an injury, and is in the same position this year , as he had to take the helm after starting quarterback Carson Wentz was injured.
And indeed, he led the Commanders to a 32-21 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, who went into the game undefeated.
As you can imagine, old Heinicke was pretty pumped, and how could he not be?
He probably thought he wasn’t going to play at all this season, and last night he led his team to a win over the NFL’s best team.
Perhaps the best part of Heinicke’s night, however, was the after-party…
Footage of a teammate showed him wearing cute chains (Kirk Cousins style) as he slammed some Busch Lattes, frozen in a trash can, onto the team’s private jet.
Needless to say, my guy has great taste in beer.
It’s NEVER a bad day drinking a Busch Light, whether you just got fired from your backhand job or just beat the NFL best time.
Minnesota Vikings DB Kris Boyd called on them to do exactly what the Vikings do on their flights home.
