Re: Burgundy pants are back!

Yes, I am glad the burgundy pants are back. Bringing back the gold pants?? only as part of an alternate uniform. and then it would be like the ones from the 75th anniversary.

Now as far as the white jerseys go, I cannot site a specific quote, but I thought I read somewhere (or heard on the radio) that Gibbs preferred the white jerseys because the qb's can see the receivers better. That makes sense.

Yeah, I heard the same thing. That was in the old days when the Skins played at RFK stadium -- the way the shadows were sometimes cast over the field, there were literally 'dark spots' towards the endzone that made the burgundy jerseys hard to distinguish. Gibbs took note of that, and made the permanent switch to white jerseys at home.

I hear what you're saying, but think about it: What are the colors of the Washington Redskins? Burgundy and gold! NOT white and burgundy.

Personally, if I ran the NFL, the rule would be that every team would have to wear their team's primary color at home -- and every away team has to wear white.

An interesting side note, since everyone associates the glory years and Super Bowl wins with the Skins white jerseys/burgundy pants -- last year, when Pittsburgh wore their white jerseys, they were only the third team in Super Bowl history to wear white jerseys as the "home" team behind Dallas and Washington.

Re: Burgundy pants are back!

it's just a classic combo. White jerseys and burgundy pants. They make a terrific pair. Like lamb and tuna fish.

Re: Burgundy pants are back!

Oh, one more thing about team colors:

Can someone please tell me what the hell the color is of the Cowboys pants when they wear their white jerseys? It looks like it's sort of a sea-green color.

But when they're in the dark jerseys, the color of the pants is definitely silver. What's the deal with that?

Like the burgundy pants, but the stripe looked kinda odd to me.

It's a lot like the popular kitchen color from the 1950s.
