And it’s not that the guys can’t take criticism. Just be a journalist and follow standard practices. Others have found a way to do both. https://t.co/eZ8i6rbvL1— Jason Wright (@whoisjwright) August 12, 2022
This could’ve been handled through the PR office. It could’ve been handled privately. But truthfully, there was nothing to handle at all. Scott did his job. Carson did his.
The only person who was unprofessional was Jason Wright. The only person who was pompous was Jason Wright. The only person who was childish, mad because he didn’t get what he wanted, which is apparently fawning propaganda that misleads the fans and belies what we’ve all seen with our own eyes, was Jason Wright.
And at the end of the day, what this is a reminder [of] is that Jason Wright is a person who works for Daniel Snyder.
If I’m gonna give Jason some grace, maybe this just wasn’t his best moment and the pressure of working for Dan Snyder amidst Congressional investigations, a failed stadium negotiation, multiple league investigations, and investigations by D.C., Maryland, and Virginia into the way they run their business...just got to him and he had a human moment. He broke. It wasn’t his best moment. He lashed out.
But realistically, no matter if this was an out-of-character moment for Jason or if it was a revelation of his character moment for Jason, this was a Daniel Snyder-like moment.
You don’t like someone? Go after them. Someone says something that’s unflattering about you? Threaten them.
Culture change? Not so much. It’s a Dan Snyder move from Dan Snyder’s team president and as we sit here in 2022 on the eve of the Commanders’ debut. And some things are still the absolute exact same.
Holy cow, with all the issues Washington's football team has on and off field, Jason Wright has time to whine that a TV reporter asked Carson Wentz a non-fluff question? Wentz handled it with ease; Wright had a tantrum. Wow.— John Feinstein (@JFeinsteinBooks) August 12, 2022
Thank you for saying this Jason! https://t.co/iOt8G0GFmD— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) August 12, 2022
This has nothing to do w the commanders team you clown . This is about Carson's interview, and the questions were obviously designed to get a reaction out of Carson. You can ask the same question is a more polite tone.— Biscuit (@bakedbiscuit20) August 12, 2022
FALSE lmao— Biscuit (@bakedbiscuit20) August 12, 2022
Instead of leading with "Philly didn't want you. Indy didn't want you"
He coulda went something like "given the other two starting opportunities you've had in your career came to an end, do you think this is your last chance as a starter?"
The reporter could have asked the questions a little differently and got the same point across.— DCSports.7amCoffee (@dcsportsMYVIEW) August 12, 2022
That said, I don’t think the reporter should be punished. It’s Carson’s job as a pro to be able to handle various questions, which he did beautifully.
Scott had some blunt Qs for Carson that was centered around an accurate timeline of events.. def could've asked the same things in a diff light to be fair to the player like Mike Jones. But alluding to the public that you're about to restrict access to a media member? Idk ♂️— Jamual (@LetMualTellit) August 12, 2022
Like I said, he could've said it better. But Jason ain't earn shit to say what he just said. The only thing Jason did with that tweet was earn brownie points from certain parts of the fan base who "hate DC media."— Jamual (@LetMualTellit) August 12, 2022
He said the silent part out loud.— KyleSmith4GM (@Smith4Gm) August 12, 2022
You can honestly say, “Philly didn’t want you, Indy didn’t want you” is an appropriate tone? We value giving extraordinary access to local media & Lord knows can’t avoid hard questions here. But disrespect should never be tolerated and we should defend our guys when it surfaces.— Jason Wright (@whoisjwright) August 12, 2022
I think the tone is obvious. Private conversations have been had and enough is enough. We’ve spent the last two years re-introducing ourselves and establishing a collaborative way of working with media. But being kind & values driven does not mean being a doormat.— Jason Wright (@whoisjwright) August 12, 2022
Agree George— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) August 12, 2022
It’s being portrayed that Jason Wrights comments are making matters worse, I disagree.— The Podfather (@TheBurgundyZone) August 12, 2022
Now Carson knows this team is behind him and they’re willing to stick their neck out for him. That’s Something that Carson hasn’t had as a professional.
That could translate into play #httc
If Carson can’t handle these questions then that’s a problem. If he were back in Philly or in New York he’d be getting tougher questions than the one that was presented. It was just a question.— Jaden (@jdaboss24) August 12, 2022
I agree that Carson handle it very well. I’m saying if the media can’t ask Carson questions like that then what’s the point in even having him available to the media— Jaden (@jdaboss24) August 12, 2022
This is remarkable for many reasons, but none more so than a team president threatening access because he disagrees with a reporter’s tone. https://t.co/wixxsPuVTF— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) August 12, 2022
I had a “high ranking official” in the Skins organization rebuke me for a tweet once and temporarily pull my credentials… but at least that person did it via email and not publicly on Twitter.— Manny Benton (@manny_benton) August 12, 2022
Jason said in public what should’ve been said in private. Now it’s unnecessary news.— Manny Benton (@manny_benton) August 12, 2022
They can be. I don't know if using your position to threaten access because you don't like the interview style is an appropriate challenge— Mark Phillips (@GoingCommander) August 12, 2022
Temper tantrum? Really?— Commando Joe (@edumacator7) August 12, 2022
I did not get that from those tweets.
The interviewer was juvenile. Wentz was defended by his team's president.
It was deserved criticism.
Jason Wright has managed to shine the national sports media spotlight on his franchise, and not it a good way. If I were a cynical man, I'd think a Snyder news bomb was getting ready to drop. https://t.co/jZFC2SRxAz— KyleSmith4GM (@Smith4Gm) August 12, 2022
Never say that Jason Wright is a coward who hides behind the 32 Rich Guys and their Goon Roger Goodell.— R.I.P. Matthias Andrew Burley (5/24/20) (@Jeronimobrat) August 12, 2022
The man is full of integrity and reshaping an organization in the midst of all this phuckery. Many of y’all would trip over your own shoe laces if they weren’t tied.
And he did, and there was backlash. Fan backlash. Therefore, makes sense tonuse the channels he's provided to handle the situation better, not get grumpy on social media like the rest of us without those channels.— Big Chief Smitty (@AJSmitty94) August 12, 2022
#Commanders team president Jason Wright's tweets were uncalled for, unprofessional, and showed it is still Dan Snyder's team and the same old culture in Ashburn, says @CraigHoffman. https://t.co/rgOpHRxlzZ— The Team 980 (@team980) August 12, 2022

Meet Armani Rogers, the 6'5" 225lb former QB who is converting to TE for this draft. The words "tools" and "upside" do not even do him justice, but he is BRAND NEW to the position.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) March 2, 2022
How new? This was the second route he ever ran in a practice in his entire life. Not bad, eh? pic.twitter.com/bgMmoU1mbn

There seems to be a lack of attention paid in the NFL world right now to this.— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) August 12, 2022
As it seems to stand with current policy, this virus could still wreak a little havoc on NFL games in 2022. https://t.co/0ko3n7w5OW
But practically, since this is calling for self-monitoring, I'll be very curious to see how seriously it's taken in the regular season, when actual stakes are on the line.— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) August 12, 2022
Are players and teams going to be as forthcoming with this, as they're trying to win every game they can?
