New Ownership, A New Era?

The Washington Commanders are ready to take the NFL by storm in the 2023 season. After a historic ownership change, a revamped coaching staff, and some exciting additions to the roster, the Commanders have high hopes of making a deep playoff run and bringing glory back to the nation’s capital.

The biggest news of the offseason was the sale of the franchise from Daniel Snyder, who had owned the team since 1999, to an investment group led by Josh Harris, owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils. Harris and his partners paid a whopping $6.05 billion for the team and Commanders Field, the highest price ever paid for a sports team. The deal was unanimously approved by the NFL on July 20, 2023.

Harris is known as a visionary and a winner in the sports world. He has transformed the 76ers into one of the best teams in the NBA, and he has brought stability and success to the Devils in the NHL.

Harris has vowed to bring a new culture and a new identity to the Commanders, who have been mired in controversy and mediocrity under Snyder’s tenure. He has retained Jason Wright as the team president, as well as Martin Mayhew as the general manager, and Marty Hurney as the executive vice president of football/player personnel, giving them full autonomy to make football decisions.

Harris has also pledged to invest in improving the fan experience at Commanders Field, which has been ranked as one of the worst stadiums in the league. He has announced plans to renovate the stadium, add more amenities, and enhance security and safety measures. He has also promised to engage with the local community and support various social causes. 

The team also has a new offensive coordinator, Eric Bieniemy, who was the mastermind behind the Kansas City Chiefs’ explosive offense. Bieniemy will work with head coach Ron Rivera, who is entering his fourth year with the team, and general manager Martin Mayhew, who is in his third year.

The Commanders have bolstered their roster with some significant additions. They have brought back quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who threw for 2,608 yards and 12 touchdowns with an 88.9 passer rating in 2022. They have also secured the services of guard/center Nick Gates and linebacker Cody Barton. Furthermore, they have snatched tackle Andrew Wylie from the Kansas City Chiefs, who signed a $24 million contract with the Commanders.

They did also experience some key departures from the 2022 season, including quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Tyler Heinicke, linebacker Cole Holcomb,, wide receiver Cam Sims, and guard/center Wes Schweitzer.

The team hopes to improve their 8–8–1 record from last year and make it back to the playoffs for the first time since 2020, and they have improved their roster in order to do so. An entire city is hopeful of what can be done under new management.

How did the Washington Commanders perform in the 2022 NFL Season?

The Washington Commanders had a mixed performance in the 2022 NFL season. They finished with a non-losing record of 8-8-1, but missed the playoffs for the second consecutive year. They also finished last in their division, the NFC East, just behind the New York Giants, who had a 9-7-1 record. This was the first season the team played under their current branding and logos, after playing as the Washington Football Team for two seasons in 2020 and 2021.

In an effort to bolster their offense, they orchestrated a trade for quarterback Carson Wentz, acquired from the Indianapolis Colts. The team also celebrated five Pro Bowl selections, including wide receiver Terry McLaurin, defensive tackles Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne, punter Tress Way, and special teamer Jeremy Reaves, with Reaves earning a place on the All-Pro first team. Their victories over formidable opponents like the Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts, and Dallas Cowboys added to their season's highlights.

However, the season was not without its challenges. Injuries and inconsistency plagued the quarterback position, with Wentz's early struggles leading to his replacement by Taylor Heinicke following a finger injury. Heinicke demonstrated promise but also faced difficulties in some games. The quarterback situation remained unsettled, with Wentz returning in Week 17 only to be benched again in favor of rookie Sam Howell in Week 18. The Commanders also experienced setbacks in close losses to teams like the Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans, and Minnesota Vikings. 

Their hopes for a playoff berth were dashed with a pivotal loss to the Cleveland Browns in Week 17, and they made history by becoming the first team to conclude a 17-game season with a .500 record. In sum, the Washington Commanders' 2022 season exhibited both promise and disappointment, highlighting areas for improvement and the need for strategic changes to contend for a playoff spot in 2023.

  • Round 1, Pick 16: Emmanuel Forbes, CB, Mississippi State

Washington Commanders Key Matchups in 2023Their attempt to improve on their 8-8-1 record won’t be easy, as their three divisional rivals had playoff appearances last season, including one of them going to the Super Bowl. Here are the Commanders’ most pivotal games:

  • Week 4 at Philadelphia Eagles: The Commanders will face another divisional rival, the Eagles, on the road in Week 4. The Eagles come from losing the Super Bowl but they have Jalen Hurts, a remarkable quarterback who can throw and run well. The Commanders will have to contain the Eagles’ dual-threat quarterback and running game, while also trying to take advantage of their defense.
  • Week 9 at New England Patriots: This game is a rare matchup, as the Commanders and the Patriots have only met 11 times in the regular season since 1972. The Commanders lead the series with six wins and five losses. The last time they played was in 2019, when the Patriots defeated the Commanders 33-7 at Commanders Field. The last time the Commanders won was in 2003, when they edged out the Patriots 20-17 at Gillette Stadium.
  • Week 11 vs. New York Giants: The Commanders will face their divisional rival, the Giants, at home for the second time in the season. The Giants are just coming from a successful season that took them to the playoffs, and they have a young quarterback who can throw and run well in Daniel Jones. The Commanders will have to slow down the Giants’ offense and exploit their defense, which was not excellent in 2022.
  • Week 18 vs. Dallas Cowboys: The Commanders will end their regular season at home against the Cowboys, in what could be another decisive game for the NFC East division title or a wild card spot. Each team got one win against each other last season, and the Commanders will try to succeed in both matchups and find a way to beat their archenemy when it matters most. The Commanders will also have to feed off the energy of their home crowd, who will be eager to see their team defeat the Cowboys and possibly clinch a playoff berth.

However, prior to their tenure at FedExField, the Commanders had a history of playing at various venues.

Following a name change to the Boston Redskins in 1933, they relocated to Fenway Park, sharing the field with the Boston Red Sox until 1936.

The rivalry is most notable for the “Body Bag Game” in 1990, when the Eagles injured nine Commanders players. The Commanders avenged that loss by defeating the Eagles in the playoffs later that year.

He enjoys activities such as weightlifting, frolicking in the mud, and enthusiastically cheering for the Burgundy & Gold family.

What are the Washington Commanders colors?

The team wears burgundy and gold as their team colors. These iconic colors have been a part of the team's identity since they relocated to Washington, D.C. in 1937. Even after the rebranding as the Commanders in 2022, the team chose to stick with these familiar colors. They hold deep symbolism, representing the team's rich history, tradition, and the pride associated with the nation's capital. Burgundy signifies the sacrifices of the military and players, while gold stands for the glory of winning championships and serving the community. Additionally, these colors draw inspiration from the D.C. flag, which features three red stars and two red bars on a white background. Elements of this flag are incorporated into the team's logo, crest, and uniforms. It's worth noting that the Washington Capitals, the city's NHL team, also utilizes red and white with some blue accents, establishing a connection between the two teams' color schemes.
