Hogs Haven: Is it time to change the name?




Probably the best time to write a post like this is a week or so after mini - camp ends, when there is nothing else to discuss. So, I'm either a month late, or eleven months early depending on your point of view.

As a reader & commenter, I came to this site just last year, and I guess I was surprised -- when I discovered it -- to see an NFL fan site that still referenced "The Hogs". The nickname of the Washington Redskins offensive line from the team's glory days is near and dear to my heart; it represents all that I love about the Redskins: smash-mouth football, the counter-trey, and Giant Joe Jacoby.

But I wonder if the name is appropriate to the modern day Washington team. The Shanahans have brought the "run first" offense back to the nation's capital, but it's a new kind of offense built around speed & deception, stretch plays & cutbacks. While Logan Paulsen may remind me of Don Warren, I'm afraid that Tyler Polumbus bears little resemblance to George Starke. And with the team's dynamic new quarterback running a unique offense that has the capability to throw up 30 or 40 points a game, it makes me wonder if the name, "Hogs Haven" may have lost its relevance; if, perhaps, this fine Redskins nation website should move forward to a new identity.

So, while I lack the marketing brain required to offer any good alternatives, I thought I'd ask the question:

Is it time to change the name of this website to something more up-to-date and more in line with today's Washington Redskins?

Or perhaps, to choose a name that is more timeless ("hail to 'em")?

Or is it idiotic to even consider a name change? In the words of Danny Snyder: "We will NEVER change the name... you can print that."

Whaddaya think?
