If you are not entirely sold on the photos of the merchandise, how about a banner inside of FedEx Field? Brad Freitas of NBC 4 in Washington D.C. has video of the Commanders banner located inside the stadium, filmed from the new station’s chopper.
Earlier in the week, legendary Washington quarterback Joe Theismann appeared on CBS Sports Radio with Damon Amendolara and expressed his belief that the team’s new name will be the Commanders. While many believed that Theismann spoiled the name, the former quarterback stressed that he does not know what the name was and he was not told what it was going to be.
The Admirals was also a name that picked up steam in the lead-up to the team’s announcement. That was until the Commanders took the spotlight via the new merchandise and banners hanging inside the team’s stadium.
