It's been a whirlwind 48 hours for everyone associated with the Washington Commanders. Changes immediately occurred following another heavy loss - their 13th of the campaign - with Josh Harris and his new hiring committee wasting no time in putting their strategy into action to begin a dramatic few months ahead.

The headlines are plentiful, as expected. Among the stories causing debate include Harris beginning the interview process, Ron Rivera's high character being praised, the prospect of Jim Harbaugh becoming a legitimate candidate, and whether the Commanders are forming the correct foundations for a profitable future.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders begin their interview process

Josh Harris and his appointed brain trust have been planning what comes next for some time. This has allowed the Washington Commanders to identify targets quickly with a wide net cast around the league. According to multiple reports, the interview process is already underway.

Prospective appointments for the head of football operations job visited Harris' lavish home in Florida on Tuesday to speak with the hiring committee.

Others are in contention and will be brought in over the next few days.

This is an exciting time. One expects something final to be announced in the coming days. Attention will then turn to finding the right head coach to take this storied franchise forward into a prosperous new era with clear direction.
