There was some discussion in the spring about the Redskins changing their name to the Redtails, which is either meant to honor the Tuskegee Airmen or inflict yet another stupid bird team on the NFL. Not that it really matters, as Dan Snyder has vowed that the name will get changed over his tiny, Lloyd’s of London-insured body. Nevertheless, we can still salute the killing prowess of red-tailed hawks. They excel at snatching bats right out of the air. They’d make fine defensive backs, which is something the Redskins actually need.
