It’s time for our favorite segment of the week here at Commanders Wire: What did minority owner Magic Johnson think of the latest performance of the Washington Commanders?
After almost every game, win or loss (primarily losses), Johnson takes to Twitter — now X — to give his thoughts on the latest game. A usually positive person, Johnson’s tweets became popular with Washington’s fan base back in Week 5 with his reaction to the Commanders’ ugly performance in prime time against the Chicago Bears.
It was evident Johnson wasn’t happy. That was something fans could get behind after years of disappointments in prime time.
So, what did Johnson think of Washington’s embarrassing 31-19 loss to the New York Giants in Week 11?
Judge for yourself:
Wow! My Washington Commanders turned the ball over six times today and gave the Giants 24 points off turnovers. We lost 31-19.

It’s hard to decipher a lot from that message. The most interesting aspect was it came at 8:53 p.m. ET. The game ended around 4 p.m. ET. So, did Magic DVR the game and watch it later?
As expected, the comments to Johnson’s tweet are worth just as much as the initial tweet. Fans personally asking for Johnson to do something with the coaching staff.
The Commanders play again on Thursday, with a trip to Dallas on Thanksgiving against the Cowboys. That should be fun.
