A New Logo is the Key to a Successful Nickname for the New Washington Franchise

When it comes to names, there’s plenty for the new NFL franchise that is known (right now anyway) as the “Washington Football Team” to choose from.

Yes, the “Washington Football Team,” the slogan that the team is going to go by for now, as reported on Thursday by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

There will be a new nickname at some point, and if you look at some of the names that are being bantered about the last couple of weeks when the Skins announced they were finally going to retire the name, you’re better off spending your hard earned cash at than trying to figure out what that new nickname is going to be.

At one point it sounded like it was all going to be the “Warriors,” but it’s cooled off the last two weeks, and now there are plenty of options that fans seem to have all kinds of opinions on.

Let us take a look at the latest odds that are being talked about as to what eventually the former “Redskins” are going to eventually become.

Here’s the complete list of names that people are talking about. The odds on these names are next to the names themselves.

Washington Redtails +300
Washington Presidents +300
Washington Generals +400
Washington Lincolns +600
Washington Veterans +800
Washington Americans +1000
Washington Memorials +1000
Washington Monuments +1000
Washington Kings +1200
Washington Roosevelts +1200
Washington Redhawks +1500

As you can see, Warriors isn’t even on the list anymore. This comes as somewhat of a shock, as for awhile fans seemed to be getting excited about the “Washington Warriors,” but now it is not even as option that people can place a bet on.

The nickname “Redtails” is the current front-runner along with the nickname “Presidents,” which is an obvious nickname based on the location of the team.

When you look up the team “Redtail,” all that pops up is the fact that it’s a “bird with red coloring on its tail.”

Yes, it’s just that simple. It’s a catchy name, but at the same time without a cool logo the term “Redtail” is likely a complete failure.

Let’s move on to “Presidents.” Again, a cool nickname that could go a long way, but again what are you going to do with the logo.

I think of the old Patriots logo when I think of “Presidents,” but again I can’t see the team agreeing to that name unless they have a very cool logo to go with it.

There’s all kinds of options when it comes to the new Washington Football team nickname, but unless a cool logo goes with it, any name is going to be a complete and utter failure.
