Yay, we'll glorify the military even more with useless platitudes.

They are still the Deadskins to me. That's what we called them in 1960 and that's what l'l dan snyder made them.

See https://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/was/1960.htm

That was the year that George Preston Marshall offered to trade M.C. Reynolds, the Deadskins' third-string QB, to the Browns for Bobby Mitchell. GPM insisted that Paul Brown, not he, was keeping the Deadskins an all-white team. "If Paul Brown would just say yes..."

These three tweets said it best:

It took them 2 years to come up with this?

Getting the fans involved and taking submissions was total bullcrap. It was gonna be Commanders from day 1. They had TWO YEARS to get this right and they went with the worse (sic) possible option. Smfh.

Commanders isn't great. But it could have been so much worse.

Snyder is inept, and over the course of 20+ years has learned not one thing.

Channel 4's helicopter apparently just spotted Commanders signs in the team store at FedEx—and the lights in the store were cut off as soon as Channel 4 reported it.

how dumb to put that up before the announcement? No need. It would be great if they went another way after all the Commanders leaks, but I doubt they are that clever

It seems they blacked out all the windows at ground level but didn’t think to prepare for a helicopter!

I am fine with the name Commanders. I think it will catch on quickly.

But the uniform leaks on Twitter are concerning because they are believable and just not good.

Flores scheduled an interview with CBS opposite Danny boy’s big reveal on NBC. So much for a day of free feel good publicity for the NFL

Our current uniforms are simple and really good. They’re keeping the same colors. You’d think a simple redesign would be sufficient.

I am still hoping those leaks aren’t real.

If the leaks are real, the burgundy jersey isn’t bad, it’s just generic. The white and black are both awful though

Lots of people have noticed that "Commanders" can be truncated to "Commies."
