As you might have been able to guess, football fans are losing their minds on social media after the Washington Commanders have been introduced.
A new era is underway, as the Washington Commanders have officially been introduced to the NFL world. With the Washington Football Team replacing the controversial Washington Redskins name, folks were waiting to see what what direction Dan Snyder and Co. would go with.
While things were leaked earlier in the week, that doesn’t mean that people aren’t fired up over this big change. Matter of fact, a quick look at Twitter tells us there’s most definitely some mixed emotions, but the majority of folks really aren’t too pleased with things.
Twitter is going wild with the Washington Commanders being introduced
Indeed, countless folks in Washington are not happy with this change. Although people were getting sick and tired of having to refer to the squad as the Washington Football Team, they were hoping for something better than the Commanders.
The people have spoken. This most definitely isn’t the kind of reception that the organization was hoping for, but you never know, people may change their minds and learn to love the new name. What’s most important for Washington moving forward is getting back to winning ways.
The 2021 campaign saw the team once again miss out on the playoffs, while the Dallas Cowboys won the NFC East. Fans in Washington want to see this team really make a splash in 2022. There’s plenty of young talent, of course including pass-rusher Chase Young and running back Antonio Gibson.
While Young suffered his torn ACL this season, the expectation is he’ll be ready to rock and be a force come 2022. He’ll do so donning a Commanders jersey over his back.
