Good, I consider our look a classic, almost untouchable look. Sure, we'vehad this look for only 39 years so they don't have the longevity of Chicago or Green Bay's REALLY untouchable sets, but we played in 5 Super Bowls in these uniforms. They represent a lot of tradition.

Thats part of the problem. Although I grew up with it.... it's classic. The Indian head has been around for some 30 years plus. Yes it's been tweeked but it's the same helmet. During Gibbs1 he emplimented the white into the uni's or at least more of the white. Gibbs1 era ended 1994 were almost at the 20 yr mark.

If they are afraid to do any major color changes then atleast update the design. I liked the gold pants with the burgundy jersey's.

I like jerseys without apostrophes.

I could handle a change if the team wanted to. They don't want to change thats fine too. Some of the concepts presented were a little off the chain and some I think are nice. I actually like the black uni, but whatever. As someone else pointed out maybe if they used more burgundy and had black trim. I think the helmet is awsome with the team logo taking up the whole helmet vs. just a circle on each side of the helmet. Use gold or use burgundy instead.

Well it's also how it's presented. I actually like the red helmet with the two feathers, but I'd prefer to see it in burgundy instead of red. My first take on it though was it looked like the Chiefs logo.... an arrow made out of feathers.

I don't like the Silver helmet and simply putting 3 feathers on each side and calling it a head dress is not what I was talking about. I said make the face mask burgundy, put a gold band around the face mask from ear to ear like the real head dresses have, then have a whole lot of feathers (white) in gold trim flowing back to the back of the helmet. When looking at the back of the helmet have it look like a real head dress.

The list looked pretty good to me, but it's all subjective.

I probably would have had the Steelers a little higher, not a big fan of the Chargers unless they're wearing the powder blue jerseys, Skins should be top 10.

Black is tired, unless it's your primary color I think too many teams over use it.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

I would hate if the skins wore black.. Seriously I don't want to change much but I would upgrade the style like Detroit and ARZ did

Re: Redskins Uniforms

And the Panthers and Broncos are way far down on this list imo.

Browns at 5?? Bears at 2?? No way

They are dead on with Dallas, seriously match your damn unis.

Re: Redskins Uniforms

I agree with his assessment of the Skins 2002, 75th Anniversary uniforms. I had hoped they would have been adopted as our full time home uniforms.

I like those BUT I just cant stop seeing FSU when we wore those. The Lombardi skins Unis are ok but not for long term.

As I said earlier, white is a neutral color used by almost every team in the league for purposes of distinguishing between the two teams on the field. Normally (although not all the time) the home team wears their main colors on their jerseys while the visiting team wears white. Not always the case certainly, but that is the purpose for teams wearing a white jersey, because it's neutral and stands out better.

Me too. Our 2002 throwbacks were awesome.
