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.

    • Eh maybe but I think it was more of let’s see how the draft shakes out and who is cut yet to make room to sign the rookies they picked. There’s still teams that have to cut some players just to get under the cap once the rookies sign. 
    • Dude I agree, but our base kinda concept is T2 with their personnel I think.  They play a variety of zones and trade off a lot.  They get lost in the secondary.  It’s actually complex as hell.   It’s possible Rock and Blackmon are gonna click as they learn the system, but it’s also possible IMO they continue to play replacement level foot ball.  Rock has issues but on many of his plays he gets NO help from the safeties. they want these guys to play downhill like T2, but they have to show they can cover first.  It might work and be exciting as hell.                       I am in lockstep with the Walker thing.  That’s why you never seem to know wth this team is trying to do well with SCHEME AND PERSONNEL.   sorry for yelling.  I don’t think our ideas about this team are really very different.     Franks a pretty good coach man.
    • Wentz wasn't my favourite option when we got him but watching some of his games from his rookie and 2nd year the guy has magic, can't wait. 
    • https://www.google.com/amp/s/coltswire.usatoday.com/2021/05/11/2021-nfl-draft-indianapolis-colts-mike-strachan-scouting-report-analysts/amp/   I like the comparison to Chase Claypool. Would be awesome if he turned out to be that.
    • What do you think the chances are of a trip to London this year?
