We’ve got a new name for the division rival. And it’s… something.

The long-awaited day arrived on Wednesday. The artist formerly known as the Washington Football Team went all-out in their announcement of the new name for the organization.

We’ve got a new Twitter handle, a new logo and a new team hashtag.

The Washington Commanders are now part of the NFC East.

So, how do we feel about these new jerseys?


Social media has had a day already discussing the new name. Some are arguing over which organization did the worst job in renaming their historic franchise: the Cleveland Guardians in baseball or the Commanders?
