READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL? • See the best action from training campAre you ready for fantasy football season?Take a look at NFL’s FOXiest fans NFL players take pride in the teams they played for. Once a Packer, always a Packer. Once a Steeler, always a Steeler. Darrell Green and Art Monk are no different. They love Washington, but here's the difference: They think it might be time for the Redskins name to change. The two Hall of Famers told WTOP radio (via Pro Football Talk) that the team should give this some hard thought. Monk has said the issue should be "seriously considered." Green expounded further. "It deserves and warrants conversation because somebody is saying, ‘Hey, this offends me.’” Green and Monk run contrary to the opinion of another former Washington great, QB Joe Theismann, who feels the team should keep their name. Owner Daniel Snyder has been outspoken in his desire to keep the Redskins name just the way it is. So, what will happen now? That remains to be seen.
