interesting, when did this come out?

it would have been cool to see them vs the steelers throwbacks.

i think thanksgiving is a lock.

only 2 games right? it'd be nice if thanksgiving was counted as a 3rd, bonus, game.

Well that would be two away games. They're going to honor the 10 new "80 Greatest Redskins" against the Panthers. And, has been told to me they're going to debut the throwbacks then

and no risk of pink to "spoil" it.

if they wore the throwbacks during this month, october, breast cancer awareness month, there would be pink gloves, pink towels, pink sleeves, etc.

but since they don't seem to be wearing the throwbacks until after october, that won't happen.

Yep, since I've made those predictions, Allen has made the statement in an interview that we're wearing them only at home.

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.

Agreed. Any trace of hot pink would completely ruin the tribute to the original Skins uniforms.

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.

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)
