Commanders newfound professionalism

Adam Peters has a wealth of experience as part of winning organizations. He's attained success almost everywhere. He was also an integral force behind the scenes as the San Francisco 49ers emerged from the basement dwellers and back into perennial playoff contention.

This is something that did not go unnoticed by the Washington Commanders. Peters always seemed like the frontrunner for the general manager job, with the interview process centering on how best to take the franchise forward more than anything else.

Peters has reinstalled a sense of purpose and professionalism that was sorely lacking during the Dan Snyder years. There's been a close-knit ethos with very few leaks emerging from within the building. This has led to more speculation and guessing than ever before, but it's been a breath of fresh air after the shoddy past operations.

When opportunities presented themselves, Peters struck with ruthless conviction. He wasn't afraid to make tough decisions, which heightened the sense of urgency across the roster and is part of a newfound ethos within the football operation.

It's a good start, but there is a lot of hard work ahead to drag the Commanders out of proverbial NFL obscurity and back among the most respected organizations. Shifting the front-office culture was always the best place to start - something that should also inspire confidence among the fanbase that the right men are in charge.
