Magic Johnson is never one to hold back his opinions on social media.
The Commanders, suffering their third consecutive loss on Thursday, handed the Bears their first victory of the season with a 40-20 defeat. Following the game, Magic Johnson, who is a part-owner of the franchise, took to social media to deliver some sharp criticism of Washington’s disappointing performance.
Known for his candid commentary on various social media platforms, Johnson shared his thoughts on the Commanders’ Week 5 display, and he didn’t mince words.
“Tonight the Commanders played with no intensity or fire. We didn’t compete in the first half and got down 27-3 heading into halftime. It was too big of a hole to climb out of and that is why we ended up losing 40-20,” wrote Johnson on X.
In his assessment of Washington’s Thursday Night Football loss, Johnson didn’t shy away from highlighting the lackluster first half as a significant factor in the team’s struggles.
Johnson acquired an ownership stake in the franchise after Dan and Tanya Snyder sold the Commanders to a consortium led by Josh Harris in July.
While Johnson brought positivity to the Amazon Prime Thursday Night Football pregame show, where he graciously signed numerous autographs for fans, his dissatisfaction with Washington’s loss to the previously winless Bears was unmistakably evident after the game.
One of the drawbacks of Magic Johnson being an owner is that he’ll never hesitate to critique the team whenever the situation demands it.
