It didn't take long for action on Monday. The Washington Commanders began their exciting new era with transparency and purpose. Ron Rivera was fired. Two key figures were brought in to assist with the hiring process. Multiple intriguing names for these vacancies became immediate targets as Josh Harris' ownership group made their intentions known.

As expected, there was a lot to unpack. Among the stories causing debate include Harris' plans for the future, Rivera's gratitude, Jahan Dotson on the need for change, and Eric Bieniemy's chances of becoming the next Commanders head coach.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Jahan Dotson on Commanders changes

There was a somber mood within the Washington Commanders locker room during clean-out day. The tag had a special meaning when one considers the number of alterations being implemented by Josh Harris' ownership group. Something that's been a long time coming and signals the start of what will hopefully become a prosperous period for the franchise.

Jahan Dotson gave an honest account of the team's failings and what needs to be done when speaking to Scott Abraham from 7news DC. The wideout acknowledged the need for a culture shift. Only then can the Commanders begin to make the strides needed to become a powerhouse once again.
