Re: Uniforms

Why couldn't teams like the Cowboys and Redskins wear their dark colors against each other? Now, it obviously wouldn't work with the Cardinals and Skins, or the Giants and Cowboys, but it'd be cool every now and then to see that.

The weather does have a lot to do with it. For the opening game in Jacksonville, Jack Del Rio had his Jaguars to wear white to reflect the heat. The same is basically true for many warm-weather climate teams. Miami, San Diego, Arizona, and Tampa Bay all usually wear whites at home when it's oppressively hot.

Against the Chargers a couple of weeks ago, the Patriots wore their white jerseys at home -- the first time I've ever seen that. Other teams that sometimes do it are Philly, Carolina, and Tennessee. To my knowledge though, St. Louis always wears their dark jerseys at home.

I'm with you, scowan. I'd also like to see burgundy jerseys at home -- but change to white jerseys and burgundy pants only for the home game against Dallas. If I ran the team, the white jerseys/white pants combination would be the permanent away jersey. As far as alternate or throwback uniforms go, I'd rather not see the Skins do that. I wasn't crazy about the 70th Aniversery uniforms with the spear logo anyway. I loved it during Schottenheimer's short time here because in that season, the Skins wore burgundy jerseys 10 times, (eight home games, and against the Chargers and Cowboys) with only 6 games in white. That was a nice change-up.
Beemnsteven, probably the only thing I liked out of the Steve Spurrier era of the Skins was the White on White away jerseys. I would just like to see a change every now and then. Unfortunately with Gibbs calling the shots, we will probably never see it. Spurrier did not care about little things like that, but I get the feeling that EVERYTHING with Gibbs is done with a purpose in mind including jerseys. Does anyone know of a way we could get a message to him that we would like to see a change? Or at least find out what the players think. For all I know they may love the look they wear now and hate the Red tops, and White bottoms look.

Re: Uniforms

I like the white jersey and burgundy pants. It's old school 80's style Gibbs. I just wish we'd go back to the curled feather on the helmet. That was cool.

I absolutely agree.

I read once, and it may have been here at The Warpath, that Gibbs preferred the white jerseys because his quarterbacks could apparently spot them better in the shadows that sometimes fell on parts of the field at RFK stadium. That doesn't mean he couldn't use the white pants at home though.

On Sportstalk 980, every Monday night at 6pm eastern, you can hear the Joe Gibbs show with Bram Weinstein. They take call-ins, but I bet it's pretty hard to get through. That would be the only way I know of to talk to Gibbs personally and ask him.

The 70th anniversary unis were tight, but since they were tied to the 70th anniversary of the team they immediately became dated. Probably Snyder's biggest mistake, he'd have been better off making those unis alternate jerseys and thus he'd have gotten more than one season out of them.

I'm almost curious about seeing the red jerseys with the red pants, on second thought lets stick with what we've got. I like Atlanta on Madden, but 13 jersey choices is a bit much.

I also liked the whit on white,and had hoped to see red on red but it never happened.

I was just about to mention the white on white uniforms. They were sharp during the Spurrier era, but I doubt Gibbs will retry that combination.

Re: Uniforms

Red jerseys at home for the Skins is just WRONG. I hated when we did it under Marty, and I hope we never go back.

Ol' Marty thought he was still in Kansas City. He tried to relive his coaching past.

Re: Uniforms

You know what would be cool? The skins wearing either gold jerseys or gold pants, just something different.

Re: Uniforms

They Redskins wore gold pants in the 70's. I could go for the gold pants with burgundy jerseys, but can't imagine gold jerseys.....

Re: Uniforms

Man, for the longest time I've been waiting for this forum to come up! I would LOVE for us to go with the 70th. anniversary unis. They look so much more intimidating than the ones we wear now. It has been said that if you look good you play good. I'm a firm believer in that, and I think the majority of the players feel the same way. The uniforms we wear now are so dated and 80's. The 70th. anniversary uniforms are way more progressive.

I can't imagine Gold Jerseys either, but we did see a taste of it on the QBs during training camp. (Gold with Red letters) As far as spoting receivers, I bet they would stand out like a stop light! I would like to see Gold pants and White shirts. The 70s retro look is cool.....ask the Chargers! I have a Joe Thiesman rookie card and he is wearing gold pants with a red stripe and a white jersey with red letters.

Re: Uniforms

I can't think of any football team in college or pro that have yellow or gold jerseys as the primary team color.

Yellow is fine as a secondary color, but it has always been associated with fear, or cowardess.
