It's gold. It's organic gold (like goldenrod) rather than metallic gold.

He'll fit in fine in Philly.

He's been out of WVU for a few years now.
Being a WVU guy, i would love to have Schmidt here in Washington. He is one bad ass dude. He could fill in / take Sellers job with ease. Plus he plays special teams like a crazed monster. They were selling those t-shirts in seattle after he busted his head open during team introductions. "get Schmidt faced" with his bloody mug on them. pretty cool.

^ Ha, sounds like it could be fun...a modern-day Riggo.

Lets pull another in-division trade with Philly.

AH for Schmitt and picks.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

I voted stay, even though I really wish they would use more of a "Gold" metalic color. I see Tampa using Pewter instead of dark grey and it looks good. Dallas and Detroit use Silver, the Rams went back to Gold vs. Yellow, the Patriots use silver, the 49ers would be the only club even close to using "Gold" besides the Rams. I'd like to see us use the colors we are actually named for.... Burgundy and Gold.

But the uni's looked good otherwise.

Wiki has a whole page about gold colors, there are of course lots of variations, and the pants certainly fall in the broad spectrum:

Gold (color) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

seems a bit of a nitpicky argument to say that it has to be one specific shade of gold. I like the idea of going to closer to burgundy and gold (whatever shade) than white, which to me was as bad as black uniforms. Just use our colors

Re: Redskins Uniforms

from the same wiki article:

Fans of the National Football League will note the Pittsburgh Steelers, Washington Redskins, and Green Bay Packers as having gold as a color. The gold they use, however, is a distinctly more yellow color (akin to the non-metallic web color version) than the traditional "old gold" used by the New Orleans Saints, San Francisco 49ers, and Saint Louis Rams. In both cases, the color is referred to as "gold".

Re: Redskins Uniforms

I'd much rather see them wear the Burgundy jerseys with white pants rather than these icky mustard yellow pants. They should go back to the gold pants like they wore in the mid-60s. As long as they never, never wear those all burgundy uniforms from last year.

Yeah, organic gold vs. metallic gold, dammit!

Re: Redskins Uniforms

Ok I am a new member and from the old school so here is my take on the uniforms. Up until Joe Gibbs #1, the skins always wore their home Burgundy and gold uniforms that appeared a bit drab compared to these updated colors. Then Gibbs began having them wear the white with red pants all these years and to me those got very old. I love the real Burgundy jerseys and gold pants but that color gold is a bit too "busy" and perhaps the shade of gold pants such as what Fl St or Bost College has would be perfect..Just MY opinion..Glad to see the Burgundy back vice Red..

I actually think the brighter gold pants work for our uniforms. They avoided the dreaded 70's look where everything seems to have at least some sort of brown tint to it, which is big part of the reason I hate seeing stuff from the 70's.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

Ditto, I think the 70's gold is just too boring as well as the burgundy.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

I didn't like the gold pants in the '07 home game against the Giants, and I don't like them now. Especially since they didn't match the jersey to go with the older look pants.

If they're going to go for the retro look, fine. But don't mix-match the modern day burgundy jersey with retro gold pants -- and yes, it looks like mustard yellow to me.

Yes. My exact thoughts.

I'd be fine with staying with the traditional uniforms that we had during the glory years.

If the fans are clamoring for a change, then let's petition the organization to begin an official campaign for a makeover with fan input -- maybe vote for the best new look.
