Washington's pro football team needs a new name.

When you factor in the racist problems of the old name and a city that’s rather reviled by the rest of the nation, the name choices can range from funny to all too serious.

Branding experts warn of the pitfalls for the team in choosing a new name, while others who love humor provide some possibilities that are only half in jest.

Washington Swamp Monsters or Gridlock anyone?

Or if you want the traditional there’s Red Tails, Monuments, Generals and the old baseball nickname Senators.

One expert is warning the team away from Warriors.
