What news stories from Washington's leaders are making headlines as fans look forward to a dramatic playoff run this weekend?
It's been a long time since the Washington Commanders have had a legitimate chance to win the Super Bowl. As fans prepare to watch this weekend's divisional round around the league with envious eyes, they can rest safe in the knowledge that Josh Harris' ownership group has begun laying out its ambitious plans for future growth.
Things may take time, but leaders are finally on their way to thriving. As we wait for more offseason developments, stories generating controversy include a top NFL analyst advising Washington to select Drake Maye, radio silence after the Ben Johnson interview, Robert Griffin III cutting the cord on social media, and how Adam Peters plans to lead from front.
Let's delve into each topic in more detail.
There was a tremendous sense of excitement among the fanbase on Friday when Ben Johnson met with Washington's leaders to become their next head coach. This could be the beginning of a lucrative relationship between the Detroit Lions offensive coordinator and the new regime.
The Carolina Panthers announced they also held a meeting with Johnson. Washington did not immediately confirm anything officially despite its transparent approach throughout the hiring process so far. This radio silence caused mild anxiety, although panicking at this early stage would be foolish.
Johnson is widely said to be the best choice for leaders. The progressive signal-caller is scheduled to interview with the Los Angeles Chargers and Seattle Seahawks today (Saturday). It's a fast-moving situation, so expect to hear something one way or another in the coming days.
Watch this space, I guess.
