How would you feel if people told you that you were crazy to want a newer car because the old one you had is what people associate you with and that you should keep that same old beat up clunker?

Wow...


Anyways, your headdress idea has been done and it looks like utter crap. So would ANY Redskins design with black in it.

I think the major problem is half the fans despise change and would prefer to keep the same uni's and helmet forever. The other half are split up into groups that would like to see a modernized retro look and the other half wanting just a modernized look.

White is a neutral color that pretty much every team utilizes so that the two teams playing on the field can always be distinguished between each other.

Even if the Redskins did decide to implement black as a trim color, this would never work because you are using black as a primary color, and this is not the case for the Redskins color scheme. Their primary color is burgundy and then it's gold. I absolutely hated the unis when Lombardi was here, because he tried to make the Redskins look too much like the Green Bay Packers.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

Just stick with the same with some minor adjustments. Maybe use the R logo instead of the Indian Head. Black looks too much like ATL

Re: Redskins Uniforms

ok the black looks legit but the old fanbase will hate it and will want burgandy as the primary color. The idea could still work if it was shifted to burgandy.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

I think we do need some kind of uniform update.

I liked how the Lions tweaked their uniform and kept it similar, but yet updated.

If we really have a new identity (do we?) and are trying to change the culture, then an updated uniform is in order...

Ughhh...No it's not. It's better-quality artwork, but the design is just as horrid.

That makes absolutely no sense...adjusting the team's identity based on the average age of the roster.

I think uniform changes only work if you've sucked for a long time while having done virtually nothing as a franchise. The Broncos with their 4 Super Bowl losses. The Cardinals winning virtually nothing. The Falcons never posting back to back winning seasons. Eagles never winning a Super Bowl (sure they still haven't won one but they're contenders year in and year out). Tampa with those ugly orange uniforms. Seahawks never having reached a Super Bowl. Patriots loosing their two Super Bowl appearances.

I don't know if 3 Super Bowl wins qualify you for a uniform change turn around. The science is still being studied.

Well we have the one point. We have sucked for a long time, winning nothing. After our last superbowl appearance, we havent been back in 20 years. We have won the division only once since then, in 1999. Since 1992, we have had 15 losing seasons. We've only made 3 trips to the playoffs in that span. The last time we had more than 10 wins was in 1991. I think a uniform change at this point wouldnt hurt anything.

Well, technically, the Redskins did change their uniforms. They went from the white pants to Gold pants and went from wearing white jerseys on burgundy pants at home (and mostly on the road) to the burgundy tops and gold at home. We even saw the Redskins wear white jerseys on gold pants at away games. I would say just tweak a bit of what the team already has (again, like what Summo had posted a while back) and don't screw with it too much. If the helmets must change from the Indian head to something else, the only other thing that works in my opinion is the spear and feather. But, I like the Indian head on the helmet. Now, if they want to make him look a bit "meaner" then that's OK, but nothing too cartoonish.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

Probably little to no chance of the Skins making any change to their base uniform. They might toss in a retro look here and there, but a permanent change? Not gonna happen.
