Adam Schefter of ESPN is one of the most reputable reporters in the NFL. He has more than 10.7 million followers on X (formerly Twitter) waiting for his daily updates on the latest happenings in the league. On Sunday, however, his post went viral for rather hilarious reasons.
Kansas City Chiefs Facing … Washington Commanders?
Instead of writing the 49ers, he mistakenly wrote “Commanders.”

Now, it’s important to put some context here. It’s not like Adam Schefter is dreaming to see the Commanders play in the Super Bowl. It’s also in no way a disrespect to the 49ers. Every person in the planet, once in a while, has a brain-fart moment. And this is the same for Schefter no matter how good he is at his work. Silly mistakes like that happen.
Now, going back to the Commanders mistake, it’s worth noting that the post Schefter made prior to the Super Bowl 58 announcement is about new Washington head coach Dan Quinn landing in the nation’s capital and GM Adam Peters welcoming him.
Clearly, Schefter still had the Commanders in his mind when he made his post.
When new Commanders’ HC Dan Quinn landed earlier tonight to start his new job, Washington’s new GM Adam Peters was there to greet him. https://t.co/mmXv0LPlsG

Schefter quickly edited the post, but not before fans got a screenshot of his post.
Sorry San Francisco 49ers, Washington Commanders Are Coming for Super Bowl 58
As a result, several fans couldn’t help but poke fun at Adam Schefter for the rather hilarious gaffe. While some can’t help but feel bad for the San Francisco 49ers for being snubbed, others couldn’t help but drag the Commanders and jokingly support the team.
Others also took to the reply section to show receipt of Schefter’s mistake.
“Hang the banner Commanders,” a commenter wrote along with a laughing emoji. Another one said, “We all saw the original Adam.”
A third follower joked, “We saw you try and correct the script. The Commanders were supposed to go all along…”
Another fan said, “You’re telling me I can’t watch Sam Howell get sacked 12 times in the Super Bowl?”

Unfortunately for Schefter, that post will likely get brought up in the years to come. Perhaps if the Chiefs end up playing the Commanders in the future, fans will also remember the said message.
As for the 49ers, they can still laugh at the blunder. After all, with Brock Purdy and Co. the favorites to win the Super Bowl, they don’t have much to worry about.
