The pants match the gold throughout the rest of the uniforms, which is the same "classic gold" we've been using since 1965. What's this obsession with mustard? Would you prefer we get your metallic 24K gold color pants that don't match anything else? That's what the Saints have do, mismatched golds.

If you mean that shade we wore for the 70th throwbacks in the Danny Wuerffel/Shame Matthews era, that wasn't an accurate throwback. We never wore that uniform historically. It was a "fauxback".

Re: A Question for all diehard Redskin fans

That throwback is how it looked back in the day, mismatched.

A lot of teams had mismatched colors.

I've heard that in the 1970-80s, there was only two colors of blue helmet shells available from the manufacturer. A dark navy blue and the bright blue the Broncos used. That's why the Giants had those dark blue helmets with royal blue jerseys...same with the Vikings' purples...they were restricted to what they could get made. The Saints had to get different shades of gold too.

I like that the teams do accurate throwbacks most of the time like the Saints and Vikings, but there's no excuse for mismatched colors for modern uniforms. I'm looking at you, Jerry Jones.

I like how we did it with Gibbs and the white being home. It looked sharp. The yellow of the throwback uniforms could burn your retinas!!!

For the record I like the gold pants

I like the gold pants also. Before the 2010 season, not counting the game against the Giants in 2007, the last time the Redskins had worn the gold pants was in December of 1978 before the uniforms changed the following year.
