  1. How about Washington Wall-eyes... put a bit fish on the helmet and be done with it.  ;)

     

    For some reason I'm ona  judgement riff.


    Washington Reckoning
    Washington Brimstone  (Imagine having an alternative color scheme that looks lava like)

    Washington Wrath   (or Wraiths)  
    Washington Warpath.   (so much you could do with that without having to be native american themed)

  2.  

    Let us not forget history.  The team used to play in the same stadium as the Boston Braves, and had the same name.  When they moved to using the Red Sox field they changed to Red Skins.  If we started playing at Nats field would we become the Red Gnats?  Redwolves indeed has a different meaning to me than the previous name.  
     


    I also did not get on the bandwagon of 'redwolves' because of the endangered species, Knowing that it could serve that dual purpose brings additional meaning to choosing that name if you ask me.  Would you be upset if we became the Washington Red Rovers and choose a generic reddish looking dog for our mascot?  Let's just bight the bullet and offend everyone.  Hail to the Washington Red Ink!  

    I'm not a native of DC or NoVa area, but I know many fans want to keep the ties to DC, but if we are really up for starting a new, I'm game, let's move to a new locale too and be done with it, preferably somewhere in MD,VA,WV.  

  3. wow you think I am under 40.  ROFLLMAO   Thanks for the compliment, but I'm not, sorry to break it to you.

    I don't have a problem with breaking entirely with tradition, but we should be clear that we are doing that if we are doing that, arguments about hints to the name of the past seem irrelevant otherwise.

    1.) While a real animal, Redwolves sounds forced.  Also, the "native to the area" also sounds forced.  Also, at the risk of sounding like a jerk...do Redwolves really convey strength and aggression?  There are barely any left.  I do genuinely feel bad for their plight, but I don't want to name the team after them.

    2.) The word "red" was the principle problem with the old name, because people took it to mean skin tone.  (whether that was correct or not is another debate)

    3.) No other team in the NFL has a color in their name.  There is only one other team in the NFL with a two syllable name, and that is Seahawks.  I don't like that name either, and it's not even a real bird.

    4.) Naming the team "red" anything seems like it's a desperate attempt to pound a square peg into a round hole.  Nothing else works as well as Redskins did, and that name is a time and place that should be left alone.  

    2)wow... what is forced about Redwolves?  Sounds like you are upset about the original name to me, just be honest you want to cut tradition off at its heal and gain more respect that way.

    3) Browns?

    3) No other 2 syllable names?  Dude... GI-Ants, Ben-gals, stee-lers, Ti-tans, Ra-vens, Tex-ans, Jag-uars, Fal-cons, Pack-ers, Li-ons, Vi-kings, need I go on?

    4) There are only a couple of names I like Red with, Red Wolves is in the lead right now if you ask me.

    ...so for you it is what I have said many times.  Redwolves is desired because the name used to be Redskins.  If not for that, we aren't talking about using that name, because it likely never comes up.

    Why does it have to be an either or, that's a False Choice fallacy if I ever heard one.  I love the name Red Wolves far better than say 'Red Hawks' or 'Red Rocking Chairs'.    As a scout I like the idea of something that exists even if  endangered.   I have not heard many other names that make me go yae _______.  

    It sounds to me like you want to cut with tradition entirely, if you do that, then you might as well move the team out of DC completely and start fresh somewhere else.  That's what I think.

    I respect your views on this, and you make some great arguments, but the simple reason is that it feels as if we are trying to keep Redskins. You even said "keep the fight song". I know you personally relate to the species of wolf but the vast majority of WFT fans, and all the fans of other teams are going to see it as Washington Redskins in everything but (half a) name. Same song, same colours, same stadium, just Redwolves instead of Redskins. I'm sorry but I just can't buy in to that and would be really surprised if the League do too.

    So if it's Warriors you are going to call them Red Warriors? That's a really odd thought.

     

     

    That's not what I was saying.   Some will say red just to piss off the non red haters.  For me it will be a slip of the tongue.


    Frankly I don't care as much about the fight song, but I want a strong name to build tradition around.    And yeah.... Red Warriors! why not?   If you change this teams color pallet entirely and eschew red, I'm not sure it will feel like the same franchise at all.

     

     

    I'm really not a fan of just Wolves when it could seriously be Redwolves without much of a stretch frankly.   avoiding red in that case basically is telling us to F off about the past, lock up the lomardis nothing that happened before matters in the grand scheme of things.  

  6. I will say it now for those that keep balking at 'redwolves' but think wolves is okay.  Many of us will find ourselves slipping the word red before wolves simply because of habbit.   If you think you are getting rid of the red by not including it in the name, I seriously disagree with that idea, you underestimate how much the previous name was cherished by many.

  7. I was kind of meh about every pick.  Especially given what the other teams in division did (Speciall dallas, Man I hate Dallas so much! Micah and Cox?) 

     

    But I can't argue with the positions they took, even the Long Snapper.   

     

    Maybe a quiet draft is what we needed.  Let them get more buzz we are going to the super bowl! (I can dream right?)

  8. here's the thing, I was looking at Dax on that mock draft site, but I never would have thought he'd fall into the 7th.  This could be the steal of the draft!

     

    Yes he needs some work on routes from what I've heard, but if he can help pull the top off some coverages that helps everyone else.

  9. Heard sheehan say something about Penguins as a mascot during player analysiss and then it hit me.


    War Penguins!

    Could be any color you want!

    Penguins are Cute kids will love it!  Think of all the plushies you could sell.

    Your Future Picks:
    2022 Round 1 Pick
    2023 Round 1 Pick

    Could have had Mac Jones at 19, but Jacksonville's additionall 2nd and 3rd round pick were too sweet not to pass up

    Could have had Trask 2:1 but went OT instead.  Trask went a few picks later (
    Round 2 Pick 3 (35) Falcons: Kyle Trask (QB) Florida

    I couldn't beleive Freiermuth fell that far.  other than that some of these guys are going to be teamers.  Not as happy with this one.

    Najee Harris went to Miami at 18 and

    Round 2 Pick 10 (42) Giants: Travis Etienne (RB) Clemson

    Etiene second round.  Only notables

  13. Projecting the future.  Assuming Flowers performs well, This could potentially be a bargaining tool against Scherff.  I know they place opposite ends of the line, but Washington could decide to extend FLowers over Sherrf to draft there, if Brandon accepts a reasonable deal then Flowers can be replaced by a draftee next year.

  14. Here was my first take.  I highly doubt this happens cause Fields fell pretty far too. (all the way to 14!  Jones to 19)

    Your Picks:
    Round 1 Pick 8 (CAR): Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State (A)
    Round 2 Pick 26 (BALT): Walker Little, OT, Stanford (A+)
    Round 3 Pick 10: Jabril Cox, ILB/OLB, LSU (A+)
    Round 3 Pick 40 (BALT): Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford (A+)
    Round 4 Pick 19: Kenny Yeboah, TE, Mississippi (A+)
    Round 4 Pick 29 (MINN): Trey Sermon, RB, Ohio State (A+)
    Round 5 Pick 19: Talanoa Hufanga, FS/SS, USC (A+)
    Round 6 Pick 16 (MINN): Kenny Randall, DT, Charleston (WV) (A+)
    Round 7 Pick 17: Cain Madden, OG, Marshall (A-)
    Round 7 Pick 19: Bennett Skowronek, WR, Notre Dame (A+)


    Your score is: 42676 (GRADE: A)

    I traded up with Carolina giving up next years first and our later third this year, then traded back with minny and baltimore to add a couple of picks.

    I'm not sure about a couple of the later round players but they have high grades on the site in that position.

    I almost went Safety at 4:29 but Trey Sermon looked too juicy to pass at that point.


    The first round is in spoiler tag if anyone is curious Darrisaw went to Denver a pick after Trey Lance.

  15. ALready seeing polls about what position should we pick.

    Look as much as I'd like to target a position, we have little idea what will be there at 19.  Without the Combine its likely to be intersting.

    Among the choices I've seen included: Offensive Line (Tackle mostly), LInebacker, Quarterback, or BPA.

    I am a fan of taking a player that can make an impact.  Not quite BPA.   We clearly are good at Dline for a bit, but I'd look at Defensive Back, Tight End, Wide Receiver, QB too.

    "We are paying Awuzie and Hilton $13M/yr combined while WJ3 is getting $14M/yr...
    I like this for us."

     

     


    This cracked me up, I think Awuzie is the most overrated Defender dallas has had this decade.  I love burning him in Madden.

  17. I would really like another experienced receiver to put alongside terry.  The other guys we have are fine for depth I think,  but I'm starting to realize, we are just through year one of the new brand and new culture.  We may need to prove our culture before it becomes attractive to other players.  

  18. I would sign a deal with Heinecki for a least 2 years heavily incentive laden.  Look Who knows if alex is back... Kyle we have to keep, and we need this guy too.  Doing that allows us to focus on other wholes and not panic reach on a drafted QB this year.  I'm okay with that.  The guy knows the offense.  And can throw down field.
