Sports·Posted on Feb 20, 2021I Ranked The 21 Suggested Team Names For The Washington Football TeamWhat name will Washington fans be chanting this fall?by Jeremy HayesBuzzFeed ContributorFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 21. Washington Founders Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Mirage Productions Yikes. I think this might be the worst one. 20. Washington Snyders Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF NBC 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. 19. Washington Americans Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Gfycat Oh, the cringe.I could see Snyder doing this, but yikes, it would be a bad call. 18. Washington Feds Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Giphy Feds — you know, like...FedEx Field? The stadium they play football in? No? Okay. 17. Washington Warriors TONY SAFECHUCK @SHOWTIME16 @RapSheet Washington Warriors and use one of their arrow logos...done and done! You’re welcome NFL 06:39 PM - 13 Jul 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite @SHOWTIME16 / Via Twitter: @RapSheet 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. 16. Washington DC Seals G Fiume / Getty Images A little too silly for my tastes, although I like the idea of incorporating DC, since we have a state called Washington. 15. Washington Governors Mitchell Leff / Getty Images For some reason, I hate the idea of using political positions as a team name. That goes for "Presidents," "Senators," etc. 14. Washington Generals Fair use / Via en.wikipedia.org Rename the team after the squad that has been waxed by the Harlem Globetrotters for the past couple of decades?Yeah, no thanks. 13. Washington Defense Corps G Fiume / Getty Images Cute.Emphasizes defense in football and also uses the initials "DC." It is just mediocre, even compared with the current team. 12. Washington Renegades Dov Kleiman @NFL_DovKleiman Which name do you think the Washington NFL team should be called? 03:54 PM - 03 Jul 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite @NFL_DovKleiman One word: meh.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. 11. Washington Capitals Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Giphy Looks like the NHL team has you beat, unless you want to have a hockey stick fight to claim the name? 10. Washington United Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Giphy Hate to say, I kind of like this one.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?" 9. Washington Footballers Patrick Smith / Getty Images A little goofy, but I like the potential of hype videos introducing the 'Ballers of Washington. 8. Washington Redwolves Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Giphy 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.Mr. Humble Brag here...I saw a red wolf once, and it made me so happy. 7. Washington War Hogs Patrick Smith / Getty Images 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. 6. Washington Commanders Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF NBC I actually kind of like this one but would hope that the team would keep a similar "traditional" logo like the current WFT.No goofy, animated soldiers, please. 5. Washington DC "the District" Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Gfycat I like the idea of the team calling itself "the District."Brings back high school memories of football district championships, so I think young players would take pride in being the District of pro football. 4. Washington Hogs Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Fox Maybe the easiest one I could see happen.That is already their secondary nickname, and they could have a cool potential logo similar to the Arkansas Razorbacks'. 3. Washington Red Tails Reese Waters @reesewaters Washington Redtails anyone? #GetUpDC 10:41 AM - 15 Jun 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite @reesewaters Maybe the most popular choice.A cool way to rep the Tuskegee Airmen, but I think with the Jets in New York, another flight team might not happen. 2. Washington Redhawks CharlotteHornets #AllFly @frankieflakes21 Mock-up logo for the Washington Redhawks 06:16 PM - 04 Jul 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite @frankieflakes21 Native American activists actually pitched this name change.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. 1. Washington Football Team Washington Football Team *Tears off plain shirt to reveal WFT-logo shirt*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.They can also incorporate nicknames, like calling the fanbase things like "the District" and "Hogs."My only suggestion is to add the logo to one side of the helmet and keep the numbers on the other side. What do you think? What name would you come up with if you owned the team?
