The franchise has captured 13 NFL divisional titles and six NFL conference championships.〔(【引用サイトリンク】CBS Sports "> url=http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/teams/history/WAS )〕 The Redskins were the first team in the NFL with an official marching band, and also the first team to have a fight song, "Hail to the Redskins".
The Redskins won the 1937 and 1942 Championship games, as well as Super Bowls XVII, XXII, and XXVI. They also played in, and lost, the 1936, 1940, 1943, and 1945 Championship games, as well as Super Bowls VII and XVIII. They have made 23 postseason appearances, and have an overall postseason record of 23-18. The Redskins' three Super Bowl wins are tied with the Oakland Raiders for fourth place all-time, behind the Pittsburgh Steelers (6), San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys (5 each), and the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, and New England Patriots (4 each).
All of the Redskins' league titles were attained during two 10-year spans. From 1936 to 1945, the Redskins went to the NFL Championship six times, winning two of them. The second period lasted between 1982 and 1991 where the Redskins appeared in the postseason seven times, captured four Conference titles, and won three Super Bowls out of four appearances.〔 The Redskins have also experienced failure in their history. The most notable period of failure was from 1946 to 1970, during which the Redskins did not have a single postseason appearance.〔 During this period, the Redskins went without a single winning season between 1956 and 1968.〔 In 1961, the franchise posted their worst regular season record with a 1–12–1 showing.〔 Since 1992, the Redskins have made only four postseason appearances and had five seasons with a winning record.
According to ''Forbes'', the Redskins are the third most valuable franchise in the NFL, behind the Cowboys and Patriots, and were valued at approximately $2.4 billion as of 2015. They have also broken the NFL's mark for single-season attendance for over ten years in a row.
The team name and logo have been the subject of controversy, with lawsuits being filed by Native American groups who consider the team name and logo offensive. However, recent polls have shown a lack of major support among fans for a name change.
