Just change the logo to a red football. Since it used to be covered in pigskin, they can still call themselves the Redskins. 

 

 

Or just call themselves the Lawyers.

Personally, I like Redtails. It's a nod to the legendary Tuskegee Airmen, so a nice 180 from what was considered to be a derogatory name previously. It's the same length as Redskins, so logo & signage-wise, it's easier. It also fits right in with their current fight song & sayings, so from a fan perspective it works.

What is a "belter", anyway? That is a strange name. 

It most likely has to do with the capital beltway (I-495) and I'm assuming people that live within it are called "belters". Not the best nickname....

How are these all so bad?  I don't really like any of them.

 

I like that some are a nod to history like the Redtails, but none of these feel like very good names for a football team.  Except maybe Wild Hogs, but if that's the best option? ...

 

Ambassadors?  Demon Cats?  Icons?  Rising?  or just a bunch of letters that end in FC...

If they want to keep some heritage, then I am more in agreement to the bolded or the Red Hogs.  It plays to their legion of fans who loved the "hogs" of the great OLines of the 80's (and Riggins as well).  I *think* they still have the Pig Pen??

Good point. One of their sites is called Hogs Haven or Hogs Heaven.

I'd get crazy with it if I owned the WFT.  Something like...

 

"DC Infantry"

 

Drab green would be the main color, with white trim.  Just those two colors as main.  Would also have an alternate jersey that is camo.

 

Emblem on the drab green helmets would be crossed muskets or sabers (or similar) on one side, and the player's number on the other side, in white.  Simple and no-nonsense.

 

Oh and a US flag in white on the shoulders, oriented correctly of course.  Would be cool to have a military themed team.

Didn't I read somewhere that they are actually thinking about leaving it as the Washington Football Team? lol The world's most generic team name ever. 

I like it.   That should be what they do.   Makes them stand out.

  • w87r changed the title to Possible new names for the WFT

Since the team's Board of Directors has not allowed the most appropriate name for the team to be on the list.......The Washington Elites,  I'm hoping they choose Football Team.

 

Red Hogs seems like it would be the proper name, but it kind of has a "diseased pig" aura about it.

    • i dont know where your getting the information irsay would not let him fire chuck or wanting the 3-4 defense .   watching a couple of interviews of ryan after getting fired he claimed jim irsay was hands off and let him make his own choices .  ryan hired chuck because he wanted to and he was a fan of the 3-4 defense .  jim has always been hands off with his stafff only giving advice .  ryan clearly said he wanted to make things work with chuck and chose  not to fire him .   after ryan was fired jim let chris ballard make the choice on chuck , just like ryan made the choice on jim caldwell .    chris ballard knew luck was not gonna be ready until maybe the end of the 2017 season so he wanted to keep chuck in place to tank for more draft picks to trade back .
    • Year two is where we should really see him hit his ceiling. We are going to have to have a little patience with him this first year until everyone gets used to each other. I think he will be good this year bur 22 is where it should really click.
    • I simply don't know how much authority he ever had.  I'm not sure anybody does.   It sound like he was simply a guy who was plucked out of a job In Philly, maybe having narrow duties, but did not have the managerial instincts and NFL connections to be able to assemble a non Polian staff.    Still, did Irsay help him in this aspect or just let him sink?   It always seemed like a weird authority structure.  Starting right off with Irsay handling the PM situation, deciding to draft Luck, wanting a 34 defense, not allowing RG to fire Pagano, and I wonder who made the call to either keep Arians or Pagano after the ChuckStrong campaign but the team flourishing under Arians.  Not that there was a real choice, but I always wondered if Irsay and Grigs had a talk about that after season 1 and what each thought about each coach and why.
    • We were in a great spot to trade up for Herbert. But we only had two teams we could of traded with. The giants and I believe the lions.  They may not have wanted to trade. Then that means we Would not of gotten Buckner. I think Herbert would of been able to win right away with this team. Character wise he was the perfect fit too.
    • One thing that stuck out was he said he didn’t have a good supporting cast around him helping him make decisions. Irsay would of given him anything if he asked. This is why Ballard is so good. He surrounded himself with great people who keep him accountable. He even said the assistants and scouts at the end of the season get to review his job performance as a GM. He said they bust his balls lol.
