As we race toward August, Footballguys.com will look at one team per day with our extremely in-depth Team Reports and our quick-hitting Team Mood and Players We're In and Out On, where we check out the overall mood of each team's offense and let you know the players we are in on (because they are great values at the cost it takes to acquire them) and who we're out on (because they are too expensive and won't have a good return on that investment).
Here are all of the Team Mood and Players We're In and Out On articles:
Arizona | Atlanta | Baltimore | Buffalo | Carolina | Chicago | Cincinnati | Cleveland | Dallas | Denver | Detroit | Green Bay | Houston | Indianapolis | Jacksonville | Kansas City | Las Vegas | LA Chargers | LA Rams | Miami | Minnesota | New England | New Orleans | NY Giants | NY Jets | Philadelphia | Pittsburgh | San Francisco | Seattle | Tampa Bay | Tennessee | Washington

Washington, Team Mood
- Good - 3
- Neutral - 7
- Bad - 5
Staffers in a Good Mood
- Phil Alexander: Carson Wentz's late-season meltdown overshadowed his otherwise (mostly) solid play in 2022. He is an upgrade over Tyler Heinicke.
- Ryan Weisse: Wentz is an upgrade at quarterback, and now McLaurin is ready to play after his new contract
- Chad Parsons: Wentz raises the tide of the passing game. If Dotson or Samuel provides anything this year, that's a huge upgrade at WR2+.
Staffers in a Neutral Mood
- Jason Wood: The 23rd-ranked offense last year returns the same coaches and system, and most of the same skill players. But Wentz is probably an upgrade.
- Dave Kluge: As much as fans want to believe Wentz is an upgrade from Heinicke, the change is marginal.
- Andy Hicks: The quarterback situation is still an uncertainty, but stability elsewhere should bear fruit.
- Sam Wagman: Carson Wentz is an upgrade over Taylor Heinicke, but by how much at this point?
- Dan Hindery: I don't trust Carson Wentz, but they are putting some other solid pieces in place.
- Craig Lakins: I'm not excited about Wentz, but there's plenty to like at WR and RB.
- Jonathan Morris: A slight upgrade at all skill positions this offseason, but I question the ability of their offensive line compared to previous seasons.
Staffers in a Bad Mood
- Jordan McNamara: When Carson Wentz is your answer at quarterback, you are not heading in the right direction as a franchise.
- Jeff Bell: Carson Wentz fell apart in the second half of 2021 and took Michael Pittman with him.
- Ben Cummins: Carson Wentz joins an offense that ranked 21st in DVOA last season. This will be one of the worst offenses in football in 2022.
- Zareh Kantzabedian: Carson Wentz has regressed into a high-end backup quarterback who limits the upside of any offense he commands.
- Kevin Coleman: It’s hard to buy into any offense led by Carson Wentz.
