Leadership, service, and a common, unifying mission to characterize this fan base and the DMV. A mission to live up to our championship legacy and win titles in burgundy and gold.— Jason Wright (@whoisjwright) February 2, 2022

Things I like with the rebrand:— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) February 2, 2022
1) Black jerseys
2) New helmets
3) Team crest/patch thing
Renamings are usually criticized because people have to get acclimated but Commanders is a pretty good name and these jerseys are crisp! https://t.co/PlfxbnUFde— Jessy Han (@hjessy_) February 2, 2022
