Not in this Century.

How many times have you heard anyone use the the term "Blackskin"?

Nicknames are one thing, but I see the big lawsuit coming
when the SOCCER FOLKS sue for the rights to the name
Football.

Regardless of your stance on the name, they are missing an opportunity to generate a great deal of goodwill and make a fortune off merchandising a new name and logo.

The Washington "Bullets" became the "Wizards" with no fanfare. It seems to have worked out OK.

Hornets become Pelicans

Bobcats become Hornets

$$$$$

The Redskins are standing up for themselves on principal. This isn't about money. There is absolutely 100% no reason they should have to change their name. None.

What goodwill would they generate and from who? The PC Police, *&$#(@ them.

My son calls RG3 "glass". Congrats to Kirk Cousins. The better QB finally gets to have the starting job. Too bad it wasn't based on talent to begin with. Just ask anyone that knows football and they will tell you if it had actually been a competition RG3 would have lost his job a long time ago. Too bad an injury had to get the right man on the field.

Lived here all my life. Whenever Skins get a new QB he is proclaimed to be The Savior: Doug Williams, Mark Rypien, Gus Frerotte, Mark Brunell, Jason Campbell, Donovan McNabb, RG3. Then we get a QB Controversy. Then they do rotten, then they go to another team and do well.

It is not doing a new, young QB any favor to oversell him. Cousins is the better QB

I wasn't sure where you were going with that.

It is always easier to come off the bench and play well. We will see how is as the starter.

Good luck to Kirk Cousins today. Starting is alot different than coming off the bench and this a huge matchup with the Eagles.
