Emmanuel Forbes showcased his standout performance in his latest NFL game against the New England Patriots. While this is a promising start to his career, the young cornerback’s main hurdle lies in maintaining this level consistently, rather than sporadically.
Amid discussions about Forbes’ future impact, Washington Commanders defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio expressed unwavering confidence in the first-round pick, as reported by USA Today Sports. Del Rio also noted that Forbes is included in the upcoming game plan, whether matched up against the imposing D.K. Metcalf or another opponent.
“I think he’s just working at it. You know, he’s a good young player. We believe in him. He’s just gotta grind and work. That’s what he has done, and that allowed him to get himself back in the game, and then he played well. No, every week, we put together a plan, go out, and hope to execute the best we can. Obviously, he’s part of it, part of the plan.”

Given Forbes’ struggles against A.J. Brown in previous matchups against the Philadelphia Eagles, assigning him to defend Metcalf could present challenges. It’s now up to Del Rio and the defensive staff to avoid this matchup and create opportunities for Forbes in other areas of the field.
