Didn't know this but wouldn't it be easier to take a Baylor picture of him and photo shop it to the Redskins colors and helmet? Which would lead me to believe it was him with the ball just in his college days.

Plus just check here

They were revealed live as they were picked.
Sorry, I was being sarcastic. It's pretty obvious that it is a fake. For one, he probably hasn't even put the whole uniform on yet.

Thumb on the laces, creates a backspin on the ball that makes it nearly impossible for defenders to intercept it.

Just check his stats...they don't lie.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

I'm leaning towards that too.

We never really had a chance to use the 75th set though, we scrapped them after one game because we were embarrassed by the Giants on the field with them...plus, they use the same gold pants we've been using with our primary set.

I really hope the team makes a big effort instead of taking the lazy option (gold 75th set).

The 70th spear set was not a throwback, it was a modern redisgn of the original, so a true throwback to the '65-'69 set would be great.

If I were in charge, I'd bring back the feather helmets! We've used every other "old" helmet in tributes. The feather is still a unique helmet like nothing else used in the history of the league, plus it still looks cool.






modern "tribute":


a true throwback would look like:

I ordered my RGIII jersey from the Redskins store. It is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. In the photos it looks plain just like the Giants jersey. We will see when it arrives.

I never noticed how large Peyton's forehead is. I'd hate to take a headbutt from that thing.

Also the Broncos new colors are ugly. Thank god we don't look like that.

Agreed, I LOVE the Orange Crush-era uniforms.


But, the new ones look better than this:

That's gotta be a photoshop. His forehead looks massive. And what's up with how big his head is in comparison to his chest? He reminds me of Mr. Mackey lolol.
