WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Washington Redskins haven’t won a Super Bowl since 1988 when they defeated the Denver Broncos 42-10, an AFC wildcard team that made it to the big game. Then they defeated the Buffalo Bills in 1992 and they haven’t won since. Now after 28 years finishing their seasons in disappointment, the Redskins are changing their name. Maybe the name change could change their luck. At this point, anything is possible.
You might blame this move on cancel culture, or maybe it was just time to put the franchise to bed, because of their terrible on-field performance during the past 28 years. The Redskins have finished at the bottom of the NFC East for the past three decades.
“On July 3rd, we announced the commencement of a thorough review of the team’s name,” the Redskins said. “That review has begun in earnest. As part of this process, we want to keep our sponsors, fans and community apprised of our thinking as we go forward. Today, we are announcing we will be retiring the Redskins name and logo upon completion of this review. Dan Snyder and Coach Rivera are working closely to develop a new name and design approach that will enhance the standing of our proud, tradition-rich franchise and inspire our sponsors, fans and community for the next 100 years.”
