What if the Redskins had to change their name?

I was just reading on the main page about a possibility the Redskins wear a different jersey this year, and it got me thinking about who the Redskins would be if they were not the Redskins.

If a forced name change did happen in DC their are an infinite amount of possibilities of  new team names, you can leave your suggestions below but here is what I was thinking.

We could go the Patriotic route with a dash of symbolism / sarcasm, (the sarcasm being that once again the white guy runs the Indian out of town). For lack of creative ability I named this team the Washington Colonials. The team could take it even further and try to organize with its fellow DC sports teams and go with Red White and Blue colors, maybe the helmet could have 13 stars.

A different choice, and one that would stick to the teams roots, would be to change the name back to the Braves, many of you know that the Redskins were originally the Boston Braves. In doing this the team could maintain its current uniform colors, while at the same time paying tribute to its history.

The third and final choice would pay tribute to a much more recent era of Redskins. The Washington Warthogs, this like the previous selection the team would keep its colors, and be named after one of the greatest offensive lines of all time, one that many of us remember. Along with that a Warthog is a fierce animal in the wild, and it sounds badarse with the double W.
