I've heard rumors and Carolina was one of them...makes sense since it's our "Homecoming" game and we're doing the tributes. Another rumor I've heard is our Monday Night Football game vs. the Giants on 12/03. It would be great to showcase them on the big stage.


Thanks for your updates, Smoot.


Even though the popular prediictions would be the Steelers and Thanksgiving...they're away games. I'm glad Bruce made the decision to only share them with home games, even though that Steelers 80th matchup would have been great.
It is the MNF game. Sorry, forgot to mention that

Heck, it ruins our current uniforms.

Good intentions and cause, but we all know it's about marketing the sport to new prospective female fans and selling them gear as much as it is about charity and compassion. It's the NFL.
I may be wrong but i would imagine or at least hope that proceeds from the pink gear go twards breast cancer also.

awesome, wish they wore these 80th throwbacks more than just twice. 8 times at home and 1 more time in dallas on thanksgiving.
correct me if i'm wrong, but they wore the 75th throwbacks more than twice in 2007. is there a limit? they couldn't have created a burgundy throwback jersey and/or worn throwbacks every game in 2007?

No, we only wore the gold 75ths ONCE against the Giants. We lost so badly that we scrapped them.

The 70th spear set was worn twice against the Giants and 49ers, which is the league limit for throwbacks, except for the league's 75th anniversary in 1994...seemed like there were no rules then. We had road and home throwback versions, as did all teams because the league wanted everyone to match up in throwbacks. Most of those uniforms were hideous and inaccurate though.

This new version is so much better than the first attempt in '94.











(only pic I could find of the whites)

I hate to interupt the Throwback conversation, but what are the Skins wearing this weekend @ Steelers? White tops on Gold bottoms I guess?

man, i really thought we wore them for a handful of games.

i was also confused because i attended the redskins-saints game in 2003, and they were wearing the spears. have they worn the spears since 2003?

so twice a season is the hard limit on throwbacks?

You mean next week? We don't know yet.

White on gold vs. blue on gray this week.

It is now. Goodell is much stricter about uniforms than previous Commissioners.

Patriots wearing 1985 throwbacks this week.

Patriots to wear throwback uniforms Sunday - Extra Points - Boston.com

Going to look odd with pink though.

Dallas usually wears white at home, and on Thanksgiving I think both teams can wear dark of I'm not mistaken

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Only if they're throwbacks...and that exception applies any time throwbacks are worn. Thanksgiving is just the popular time to do it, that's why I initially predicted we'd wear them on Turkey Day. I didn't even think about saving them for just home games (good move).
