Josh Harris reacts to Commanders voted last in NFLPA report card: ‘I’m not an F-minus guy’


The Washington Commanders came in last place in the NFL Player Association’s 2024 report card and the spot is not somewhere owner Josh Harris plans to stay. Harris bought the team from Dan Snyder last season, but was unable to make a significant improvement from the 2023 report card grades. 

This year, Commanders received an F- in “treatment of families,” “locker room” and “training room.” They earned an F in “training staff” and “team travel,” a D+ in “food/cafeteria,” a C in “weight room” and a B- in “food/nutrition.” Their highest grade came in the “strength coaches” category, who earned an A.

While some owners are dismissing the report, Harris is taking it seriously and is not satisfied with getting such low marks.

“I’m not an F-minus guy,” Harris said (via “I didn’t even know you could get an F-minus. Obviously, we’ve jumped all over that. First of all, that report was based on interviews that occurred right around the ownership change.”

Harris was given a C grade for ownership.

Going forward, Harris wants to invest in the team locker room and training room. He said it is something they are focused on this offseason, adding that general manager Adam Peters and head coach Dan Quinn are involved in the work. 

“It’s clearly something we’re focused on,” Harris said. “In fact, Adam and Dan had to leave the NFL meetings briefly to go have a discussion with the architects. We’re trying to make a lot of changes quickly. The NFL player community is a small community, the NFL coaching community is a small community. We want to be a place that everyone says, ‘That’s a great place to be.’ And therefore, we need to upgrade that facility, and we are upgrading that facility.”

The plans do not stop there. Harris wants to make upgrades across the board, including the playing surface, but does not have a timeline for when the other projects will be done.
