This would be a typical troll job by owner Dan Snyder, the same man who said he’d never change the name, but when the franchise did, he was nowhere to be found.
Like the Cleveland Browns, they could be the second team with their owner’s name as the team name.
I loved the nickname and even the OG arrow logo growing up, but it is the wrong move, and I hope the organization steers away from that now.
A little too silly for my tastes, although I like the idea of incorporating DC, since we have a state called Washington.
For some reason, I hate the idea of using political positions as a team name. That goes for “Presidents,” “Senators,” etc.
Rename the team after the squad that has been waxed by the Harlem Globetrotters for the past couple of decades?
Emphasizes defense in football and also uses the initials “DC.” It is just mediocre, even compared with the current team.
When original name changes were pitched, this one was very popular. There was a weird thing where fans wanted to keep a team name with an r-word.
Looks like the NHL team has you beat, unless you want to have a hockey stick fight to claim the name?
It also makes me laugh knowing that it would make soccer fans mad and head to every comment section saying, *smacks lips* “You mean American football?”
A little goofy, but I like the potential of hype videos introducing the ‘Ballers of Washington.
Fans LOVE this one, for some reason. Again, the weird obsession with keeping the word “red” has been one of the strangest recurring things in this process.
Silly, but as some have said, if they get the rights to play the song “War Pigs” by Black Sabbath, it may be a cool team name that fans would get behind.
I actually kind of like this one but would hope that the team would keep a similar “traditional” logo like the current WFT.
Brings back high school memories of football district championships, so I think young players would take pride in being the District of pro football.
That is already their secondary nickname, and they could have a cool potential logo similar to the Arkansas Razorbacks’.
A cool way to rep the Tuskegee Airmen, but I think with the Jets in New York, another flight team might not happen.
I would hate to add another bird into the NFL mix, but I feel like “Redhawks vs. Eagles” would have a nice ring to it.
That’s right, I fell in love with the WFT name. I like the logo, the uniforms, and how much this team now stands out in comparison with their rivals in the NFC East.
My only suggestion is to add the logo to one side of the helmet and keep the numbers on the other side.
