That helmet looks great. Kudos to Nike, I can't wait to see them playing in these and I'm thinking about getting one of those jerseys for my next jersey purchase.

Those might not look so bad if they added a big feather on the helmet, with a helmet or a spear with feathers on the shoulder pads instead of the indian head logo. I dunno, it looks sort of outdated, but I guess that is all in the spirit of a throwback.

Having said that, I would like the skins to take just a slight tip toe into the 21st century and give us an updated logo or design. I feel that since we aren't a winning franchise, and havent won anything in over twenty years, maybe its time for a new logo and a sleeker updated design. Now would be as good of a time as any. New coach (kinda), younger defense, and a brand new stud QB. Put that together with the skyrocketing optimism surrounding our team right now, i feel that if it were a well thought out, bad ass design that everyone would get behind it. Plus, I read somewhere that every time a new jersey or team logo is introduced or "revamped", that profits of jersey and team memorabilia go up an average of 24% versus the average of the previous 2 years. Might be something to think about moving forward with our blossoming franchise.

*** One thing though, just dont let Jay Z or any local area "rapper" come up with the design.

I like them the for "throw back uniform" If they made them into our regular uniform I'd want them do something different for the helmet....

Just to be totally clear, I am not "bitching" about the similarity to BC, I was just saying that is what it reminded me of, not that its a bad thing. I like the details in the helmet, and on the sleeve of the jersey, and the logo that is sewn in the collar of the jersey...

Its different, I do like it, but some have a hard time with change... & its only the throw back uniforms not there every day uniform...

Maybe, but there is no way I want the Redskins to remove the Native American head from the helmet...

That's the #1 Thing I want to get rid of. It's tacky, dated, and looks cheap in comparison to modern uniforms. I'd like it in a retro alternate uniform we wore every now and then, but I'm pretty tired of it. It hasn't held up well over time.

Given that some enemy fans call us the Foreskins, the Pinkskins look is probably a bad idea.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Not a uni geek at all and usually I am just forget the BS and go tradiotnal. I do like the all Burgundy look now and again.

But these MFers our outstanding! I genuinely love them. They are literally the first throwback that doesn't look like crap. And the helmet makes them simply awesome. Good job to Nike and Bruce on these.

Love love love that helmet!

I really like these throwbacks. I also agree that a updated logo would be very welcomed.

I want an updated version of the yellow R helmet. Might be time to retire the controversial Indian face.

Black facemask for the black fans.

I'm really digging these, one of the classier throwbacks out there.

I think they are cool, could have been allot worse. I am disappointed in the 80th anniversary logo though, they took the easy rote and just modified the 75th, laziness if you ask me.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

LOVE the helmets. I'm impressed. Are they leather-wrapped or is that just an incredible graphics job?


Good job, Nike, no black...all class.
