Monday will reportedly mark the end of a certain era in Washington football, as the team is expected to retire the name 'Redskins.'
Washington's football franchise was founded in 1933, and the team became the 'Washington Redskins' when the franchise moved from Boston to the nation's capital in 1937.
Over that span, Washington has won three Super Bowls, two NFL championships (pre-NFL-AFL merger) and had over 30 players inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
So, as fans found out Sunday evening that the 'Washington Redskins' were soon to be a thing of the past, many of them became emotional on Twitter about the team's successes over the years.
2 NFL titles.
3 Super Bowls.
603 Regular Season Wins.
23 Playoff Wins.
14 Division Championships.
5 Conference Championships
2 Retired Numbers.
32 Hall of Famers.
Countless memories & legends!
end of era.
Hail to the Redskins. #HTTR pic.twitter.com/yPwwXwIDMD
