Twitter reacts to Commanders hiring Bobby Johnson as OL coach

When the Washington Commanders hired Kliff Kingsbury (offensive coordinator) and Joe Whitt Jr. (defensive coordinator) last week, the next highly anticipated hire would be on the offensive line.

Who would new head coach Dan Quinn pick as his first offensive line coach in Washington?

Quinn’s first choice was believed to be Dallas tight end coach Lunda Wells. However, the Cowboys denied Quinn permission to interview Wells. On Monday, Quinn hired former Bills and Giants offensive line coach Bobby Johnson as Washington’s O-Line coach.

A quick search of Johnson, and you’ll find he was let go by the Giants recently after two seasons. The Giants allowed 85 sacks in 2023, the most in the NFL and the second-most of all time. While New York’s problems weren’t all due to Johnson, Evan Neal, the No. 7 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft, regressed badly.

You can blame injuries for part of New York’s OL woes, but every team has injuries. And when it was revealed that the Commanders had hired Johnson, Giants’ fans either laughed or felt sorry for Washington fans.

Here are some reactions to Johnson’s hiring — they aren’t positive.
