Benjamin St.-Juste: Commanders could use a “fresh start”

In 21-plus years of PFT, the stories we’ve share based on quotes from NFL players have always originally been provided in English. Tonight, that’s changing.

Commanders cornerback Benjamin St.-Juste, a Quebec native, gave an interview in his native tongue to a French-language newspaper. The folks at Audacy.com used Google Translate to convert the words into English. Here’s what the second-year defensive back had to say about the ongoing turmoil with his team.

“Since I arrived here, it’s been a dark cloud over our organization,” St.-Juste told Le Journal de Quebec. “Every time there is something good happening on the pitch, something bad is happening off it. It would give us great energy to have a fresh start and regain the confidence of the fans.”

It’s the strongest comment yet from any Commanders player regarding the impact of the chronic dysfunction, and regarding the value of turning the page with new ownership.

Kudos to St.-Juste for speaking the truth. Hopefully, some of his teammates will feel sufficiently emboldened to follow suit. As recent events have made entirely clear, the sooner Daniel Snyder sells the franchise, the better off the franchise will be.

  1. You should make an “all pro hate team” that will
    Consist of coaches, executives and players you despise

    Team owner: Dan Snyder
    Team QB: Aaron Rodger
    Backup Qb: Kirk cousins
    Etc
    Etc

  2. The amount of clowns that have cropped up in the comments since the SS Snyder started taking on water is astounding. Is it Dan? If not, I hope they got paid. Especially since I doubt more checks will be coming in the future.

  3. To @1 Why would anyone hate Kurt Cousins? He seems like a really good dude, maybe a little more religious than I like. Playing badly in primetime is no reason to hate.

    Cousins has never been liked by our fan base. Hate is too strong a word, but he’s always been aloof. It had little to do with his play on the field. His press conferences were always aloof and haughty. Despite hum being better than any QB we have around here, we don’t miss him. It’s more indifference than hate, maybe. But fans here just don’t craze him.
