If the goal of a team name is to be something representative of the area where the team is and strike fear into the hearts of competing teams...

There aren't many names that actually work for the cesspool that it Washington DC.

The Washington Lobbyists
The Washington Congresscritters
The Washington Crooks
The Washington Cucks

Keep it relevant. Or go historical. Rather than Red Skins, since they've almost certainly never had a Native American on the team. How about the Washington N-Words? Keep the tradition of racism, but make it more relevant to the football arena and to the demographics of Washington DC. Would be a very classy way to do this.

Honestly, the goal of a team name has nothing to do with making opponents fear you, and anyone who thinks it is needs to not be allowed to name teams.

What's a scary professional team name?

As long as it isn't a singular entity like Heat, Lightning, Bell, Gold, or Greed, I'm fine with it.

A friend of mine suggested the Redtails.  It would be a huge step away from their previous racially insensitive name, honor the military and the Tuskegee airmen all in one shot.  Plus they'd make a killing on merchandise.

You miss a crucial point.

Tuskegee is in Alabama.

I vote for the Washington Shermans. Because that way, when the time comes and they play Atlanta, I can get an easy greenlight when I submit a headline for "Washington burned Atlanta to the ground again".

It might take a couple of seasons, but you never know.

I've just been calling them "Washington Team of Football", that's how my brain interprets the current abbreviation anyway.

The first two are good. I really like the Swamp Monsters.

I hate the Washingtonians, because I live in the better Washington. But even that's better than just Football Team.
