10 New Mascots for Dan Snyder’s ‘Redskins’

ICTMN Staff
11/9/13

If you’re not part of a Fantasy Football League this NFL season, you might want to start some kind of bidding pot for what the Washington football team’s new name might be. Not to suggest that the team’s owner, Dan Snyder, has decided to change the name, but just in case he has a change of heart, there are options.

Hundreds of new mascot designs for the Washington team were submitted to the web site 99 Designs, which asks graphic artists to compete in designing logos for clients.

Let’s be honest, almost any one of these would be better than the one they currently have.

1.     This alternative was submitted by Slate editor David Plotz. Ode to RG III?

2.      Ken Meringolo and Kevin Ewoldt of SB Nation offered up the Washington Renegades.

3.     If the real Redtails say that this is ok, then why not? 

4.     Pick a name, any name…

5.    Robert McCartney of the Washington Post suggested the Washington Warriors.

These next few logos weren’t part of the design contest.

6.   Actually, this one's not too far off from one of the suggestions that were made by a Yahoo contributor. A tempting idea for a political city.

7.     According to KorkedBats.com this one might offend cavemen. Darn. 

8.     And then there’s this one. Hmmm.

9.     How ‘bout them…Pigskins?

10.  Take away the feathers and we have a winner!

Do you have a favorite?

Let them keep the current name provided they move the team to Washington State and the mascot becomes a potato. Let Dan Quayle design the logo, since he's now had enough spelling practice.

The choices are numerous and these are great! 's picture

The choices are numerous and these are great! Severe Racist Laws=Severe Human Casualties. Time to stop casualties in the NFL!

My snarky suggestion is Washington Crackers.
My real suggestions would be the Washington Javas or the Washington Vibrations...

Like the idea of the Griffins or the Renegades. They are names that should not cause any dispute.

Some of those are pretty good. But allow me to give a few idea's. Just names though. The Washington Warriors. The Washington Militia. The Washington Minute Man. The Washington Colonials. The Washington D.C.'s. The Washington Capitals. Or the Washington Senators. Hows that?

I think they should keep their current name. They've been the Redskins for over 50 years, and there are certain tribes who are just now getting offended? If they have nothing else better to complain about, they have nothing to complain about! I'm part Cherokee and Creek ( Seminole ), and I don't find it offensive! Stop all the hype and complain about something worth complaining about!

I like Washington Warriors, it has a nice ring to it. And a tribute to our military on the helmet.

Washington Warriors or Pigskins., I don't like the Warrior 'icons'. Pick something else.

im proud too wear my redskins jersey and cheer for my redskins every week for the past 30 years. will u stop whinning about a name. that logo is the only reason I like the redskins. if that is the only thing u have to complain about, then u need a life cause there is lots the government ( USA and Canada ) have done and still does to us natives. when u change all that we can bitch about the redskins.
