Just imagine the NFC East divsion coming down to the wire and the Demon Cats are in striking distance of a playoff berth.

The Washington Football Team is currently putting out feelers to the fan base regarding a new nickname for the franchise after they were basically forced to get rid of the ‘Redskins.’

In an email, each season-ticket holder was given a list of roughly 10 names and was asked to choose which two were the best. Not every season-ticket holder was given the same list and it ended up being more than 30 names to choose from.

“This is an ongoing, iterative process — we’ve used focus groups, stakeholder interviews, large-scale surveys, and other qualitative and quantitative approaches to understand what fans want and what types of names resonate with our fans,” Wright wrote, via NBC Sports Washington. “To that end, we want to ask all of YOU for your input on what kinds of names are most meaningful to you — which concepts represent what you love about this organization and what it means to you.”

“Each of you will be shown a small selection from a broader pool of brainstormed names that we’re getting early feedback on,” Wright wrote. “Please note, this is not a vote for the name, but instead an opportunity to capture insights and perspective that will be so important to this next phase of our rebrand journey.”

Here’s a list of names Washington fans were asked to choose from:

  • Aces
  • Ambassadors
