Re: Will the Redskins ever get new uniforms?

Ok, here's an idea. How about keeping the same uniforms, logos, everything, but maybe change the colors? Make the burgandy darker, the yellow turn to gold. The Rams did the same thing. They went to darker blue, gold, and keep the same unis. The tradition is kept with the current logos, just the colors are a little bit different. If I'm wrong with this, my bad. I'm not trying to ruffle any more feathers. Just throwing ideas out there.

I wish I could be as sure as you seem to be. I would not like to see the name or uniforms changed but sometimes strange or unpopular circumstances occur. It does appear that Dan Snyder has tried to be prepared in the event that he is forced to make those changes.

Have you seen Summo's tattoo? I'm sure he's in the same boat at you about the helmet and logo.

Re: Will the Redskins ever get new uniforms?

i haven't seen his tattoo. all i have is the helmet with logo. but i've been a "redskin" fan since i was a child back in the late 70's and early 80's. and when i'm in my 50's i still want to be a "redskin" fan. there is just to much pride in the burgandy and gold to change it...

Marshall moved them to D.C. in 1937 brought in rookie Sammy Baugh, and the rest is history.
Thanks for the correction.

Re: Will the Redskins ever get new uniforms?

I do not think that the skins will ever have to change their names. They have far too many powerful people lobbying on their behalf. As long as were not f*cking with PETA I think we should be alright. We may however, have to start paying off reservations. Not that that money will be put to any sort of good use.

Re: Will the Redskins ever get new uniforms?

Anyone know what uni the Skins will be wearing at Seattle this weekend so I can coordinate while sitting on my couch? I assume the samething we've seen every week "White on Burgandy". Don't the Seahawks wear that nasty blue on blue or whatever color you call that?

I almost 100% sure that we'll be wearing the white/burgundy.

Seattle's uniform is awful. They look like an arena league team.

Re: Will the Redskins ever get new uniforms?

Thanks Redskins P, it would almost have to be White on Burgundy, because the Seahawks wear their all blues at home, and I agree with you on the Hawks unis being ugly.

Plus, there is no such bird as a Seahawk. It's like naming a team the Bigfoots.

Re: Will the Redskins ever get new uniforms?

I haven't read the whole thread, but I want to give my $0.02

I hope they don't change. However, if they do, I hope they go to the 2002 Throwbacks or the 1994 Throwbacks. Dark burgundy is a good look.

Re: Will the Redskins ever get new uniforms?

I'm with ChuckPrez. I really like the home throwback set used in 1994. The only problem(s) are this scheme is closest to a throwback to the 1961-1968 unis. This obviously would not be looked kindly upon by those who associate a uniform with an era. If the 'Skins never changed in 1969, the uniforms would probably evolved into what the Raiders have today (with the burgundy/gold in place of silver/black).

I like the current set only because of its association with the glory years. In actuality, they were introduced in 1979 and were a "disco-ing" of the Lombardi change made in 1969. I have never liked the red jersey/white pants combo (not enough gold). Thankfully, they disappeared at home in 1981 and didn't reappear until 2001 under Marty.

While I'm at it, there are two little known (perhaps, little cared) facts about the red jersey/white pants combo.

1. Gibbs introduced white jerseys at home because, from his days at San Diego, he believed receivers could be seen better by QB's wearing white.
2. The red/white has been worn at least once every season, but in 1984, 2004 and 2005 they were worn ONLY once. In 1984 and 2004, it was at Dallas who always wears white at home. But in 2005 Dallas wore their throwbacks and the skins wore white (for the only time I've ever seen). The red/whites were worn in Tampa Bay.
