ALL-WHITE UNIFORMS IN TAMPA

The Redskins are expected to wear their all-white uniforms for the sixth consecutive game this Saturday versus Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers have informed the league that they will wear their red jerseys for the Wild Card game. Since home teams determine the team jersey colors for games, this means the Redskins can wear white jerseys and white pants.

The Redskins are 5-0 since they started wearing white-on-white uniforms in the Week 13 game at St. Louis.

Joe Gibbs has said players decide which jersey color the team wears for games."

Nice find bro.


"Redskins officials say the team will wear white again—assuming the Bucs don’t try a bit of psychological warfare and make a last-minute switch to white-on-white. But that would force the Redskins back into red. For them, it could be a win-win situation."

Here's an interesting article I found regarding our uniform switch

http://www.washingtonian.com/inwashi...nscolors2.html
so is this the website that says it or is there another source?

he basically stated that they might wear white on white.

Re: All burgundy Uniforms Sunday

Once a team declares what color jersey they are wearing there is no going back. There was one incident though last season when the Chargers were hosting the Broncos early in the season and the Chargers elected to wear their whites at home. The Broncos informed them that they thought the Chargers were wearing their darks at home and only packed their white uni's. Which was later determined by the league to be bullshit and fined the Broncos $25,000 for it. It came down to the Chargers wanting the Broncos in their dark uni's in the hot Cali sun. As for the burgundy on burgundy they never ever wore it!! -Summo

Re: All burgundy Uniforms Sunday

So the Taylor Jacobs Burgundy on Burgundy uniform was a preseason photo and never actually worn in a game?

Nice insight, makes sense that they can't go back on their word. I assume the road team needs to know which uni's to bring with them.

Guys, I always thought the Home Team for the Super Bowl was the team with the best record. In the case of a tie record, they move to some sort of tie breaker. In the past several years, however, I don't think the two Superbowl teams have had the same records, so the home team is the best team going in.

Isn't that how it works?

Re: All burgundy Uniforms Sunday

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Bowl

The designated "home team" alternates between the NFC team in odd-numbered years (the Philadelphia Eagles in 2005), and the AFC team in even-numbered years (the New England Patriots in 2004). The home team is given the choice of either wearing their colored jerseys or their white ones; this started with Super Bowl XIII. Prior to that, the home team always wore the dark jerseys. The Dallas Cowboys wore their rarely-used blue uniform tops in Super Bowl V, and lost to the then-Baltimore Colts, which has led to the widely-held belief that the Cowboys do not play well in their blue shirts. While most home teams in the Super Bowl choose to wear their colored jerseys, only the Cowboys in XIII and XXVII and the Washington Redskins in XVII have worn white as the home team.

Yea, I contacted the NFL a few years back and they told me that the teams before the season starts they have to fill out a form stating what unis they will be wearing at each home game.
