Brandon Scherff gets no real excitement from facing Washington in Week One

It’s not quite Russell Wilson returning to Seattle, but Week One includes former Washington guard Brandon Scherff going back to FedEx Field.

Scherff, a five-time Pro Bowler who spent seven years with Washington before finally hitting the open marker, was asked by reporters on Sunday whether he’s excited to face his old team to start the season.

“Not actually, not really,” Scherff said. “I had a great time and a great experience in Washington, and I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for all the coaches that I played with through there. For me, Week One is another game that I have to get myself ready for and you know, we just got to get show up and get ready to play because they’re a heck of a team.”

Reasonable minds may differ on whether the Commanders are a “heck of a team.” But the Jaguars have been a heck of a bad team in recent years, so any team they face, until they prove otherwise, should be regarded as a heck of a team.

  1. Hey “smartestguyintheroom”…this is his first year with the Jags, he never played for Meyer. Read the article again then change your name.

  2. Terrific player here – miss him for sure. Go Btandon Scherff, Go Washington!!

  3. As a Washington fan who watched him and Cousins fleece the organization with multiple franchise tags while never honestly negotiating a long-term deal only to walk for nothing while professing how much they “loved the guys here”, I coudn’t care less what he thinks!

  4. Early in his career, he was overshadowed by Trent Williams, but hopefully now that he is the main stud in Jacksonville, he will be able to shine. Good luck with your new team, Brandon! Washington fans will always remember you.
