2020 NFL OFFSEASON THREAD


Recommended Posts

NFL is shortening the pre-season to 2 games. They have eliminated Week 1 and Week 4

So the league is changing the schedule to make sure every team plays one road game and one home game

The two week games will happen are Aug 20-24 and Aug 27-31

Does Snyder make the announcement about dropping the name tomorrow morning or Monday? With FedEx and Nike on board with a change there’s no way he can keep the name.

My marker is on him announcing on the 4th that he's changing the name to The Washington Americans or something equally cheesy.

Yeah Snyder is incredibly stubborn, doesn’t like to be told what to do (as are most rich folks) and has carried on about what “special meaning the team name has”

At max - it will be “we will change the name.... after the season” and use that as a stall tactic 

Either way - as long as I can stop seeing the fucking potato memes

Just another for the Rippa was right pile

Quote

The Washington Redskins on Friday issued a statement that they will "undergo a thorough review of the team's name" amid renewed pressure.

"In light of recent events around our country and feedback from our community, the Washington Redskins are announcing the team will undergo a thorough review of the team's name. This review formalizes the initial discussions the team has been having with the league in recent weeks.

"... We believe this review can and will be conducted with the best interest of all in mind."

The statement from the team does give credence to the idea that Red Tails will most likely be the name change.

Otherwise just do the Generals to piss everyone off

I mean seriously it is obvious what the new name should.  The last good football team in maybe the entire DMV 

Washington Defenders 😉

Well then maybe somebody would pay more than $20 for the XFL so that’s a win for Vince McMahon.

Considering Ron Rivera said that the name honors the military as well, maybe Washington Generals would be appropriate since they lose all the time.

I totally forgot that Dan Snyder trademarked the name Warriors years ago

If Vegas puts that on the board, that is where you should place your money

The Chiefs should be next. . . . I know the Twins probably own the copyright, but a football Washington Senators would also be totally inline with the Slurs recent records . .
