      ES Coverage Cowboys vs Redskins
       
      10/21/18
       
      Cowboys versus Redskins - now that just sounds correct.
       
      Hello friends, JimmiJo here along with THE Spaceman Spiff. Space is already on the sidelines, yucking it up with the important people. Me? I'm thinking how grateful I am for the 3-car accident on the beltway...
       
      If you cannot get up for this game, there isn't enough viagra made on earth for you. After all; the Redskins are hosting their eternal rival, the Cowboys. Winner will be sitting on top of the division, with a truckload of bragging rights.
       
      What's not to like?
       
      Well, for starters, everybody and their mom is inactive. Chris Thompson Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson, Quinton Dunbar; all inactive. What a time to have have your top two receivers out. The chatter here in the press box is Washington should do what they can to bring in receivers - to include making a trade with the Raiders for Amari Cooper.
       
      Then there's the question of which Redskins show up? They could come out and light Dallas up. Or, post an anemic effort to suffer another embarrassing lost. Neither would surprise me.
       
      One this is for sure, the distribution in fans is something like 55-45 Redskins. Already an embarrassment. Until you consider this team has done much to earn the lack of support.
       
      Still, you have offer the finger in the middle to those fans who sold their tickets to Dallas fans. What were you thinking?
       
      Back shortly...
       
      Inactives
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 10 WR Paul Richardson Jr.
      o   No. 23 CB Quinton Dunbar
      o   No. 25 RB Chris Thompson
      o   No. 30 S Troy Apke
      o   No. 55 C Casey Dunn
      o   No. 74 T Geron Christian Sr.
      o   No. 80 WR Jamison Crowder
       
      The team held a touching tribute to my friend Rich Tandler, who passed this week.

      Half
       
      Did you hear the one about the team that got chance after chance but couldn't score more than a touchdown?
      That's right; they are tied at 7 at the half and completely anemic in the second half.
       
      "Against the run of play" is a term you hear in soccer all the time. It is applicable here. It means the better team is either tied or trailing.
       
      Whoever said football was fair?
       
      Washington needs to find a way to get hot in the second half. The Dallas Cowboys are infinitely beatable today.

Why, does it look difficult to do? :ols:

90 seconds, tops. :yes:

Nice. I'm not a whiz at all with photoshop or picture editing, so something like that would probably take me 30 minutes or so.

Nah, just a sloppy but quick magic wand to select and delete the green field and a paint bucket for the background after using Pantone colors :thumbsup:...

Thanks Cali but the unifoms still look yellow to me. That pantome gold looks like looks like yellow is the mother while orange and gold are trying to figure out who's the father.

So long as we don't wear white-on-white; or the ghastly burgundy-on-burgundy; they can call it whatever they want to call it.

They'll still be the Burgundy and Gold to me.

Hail.

OP,

Well I don't know what so say but I feel sorry for you. Why you ask? Every year this topic comes up and every year the majority of the color commentators would say ..... It is B&G. Even I with my aged eyes that see in perfect color can tell you that your seeing B&Y, but someone conveniently puts a beautiful color chart from Home Depot or Lowes showing all the different shades of yellow from dark to light and will say "all these colors are gold". I think no different then someone seeing murder on tv too much they get desensitized, some folk here have seen yellow too long used as gold and are content with their desensitization.

I too would love to see a more "metalic" looking gold which would be more on the darker side but to many fans here obviously go to the "Golden Arches" of McDonalds too much and believe that yellow is actually gold. I'm glad to say that I am happy that my second team, Tampa, does not have that problem with the color Pewter looking more like gray. But good luck on this misadventure, don't take the comments personal because your fandom will probably be put to the question and simply sit back and enjoy all the misguided people's comments about their belief as to what color are all "shades" of gold instead of accepting that they and the team are wrong and should change to a more metalic color gold.

Have a nice day.

Why not ask? It's the offseason and this is a forum dedicated to all things Redskins.

I agree with you and VRIEL1. The color is more on the bright side of yellow, not the darker/dirtier shade. And if nobody is talking about it, then it will just stay the same. I got a 1970s banner that is clearly GOLD, not yellow.

Zorn, is that you? You sure it's not Maroon and Black?

Did this really need to be a thread?

That picture is from 2007. Maybe look at last year's uniforms?

:o noes, I thought there was a Fashion Police thread covering uniforms let alone MTH's Jersey thread???

For the "gold" or whatever y'all want to call it, I prefer something in between the more yellowish gold on today's uniforms, vs. the darker look like what the team wore in the 60's.

I'd like to see something in between these (and darker burgundy jerseys):

How does a Redskin fan have a 2nd team? I'll never have a 2nd team. I mean, if we suck, I'll take another team that I like to watch, but I don't openly root for them or have any of their gear. For years I liked to watch Brett Favre and the Packers or Peyton Manning and the Colts, but I never claim to have a 2nd team.

The current gold pants worn this season with either jersey combo and the burgundy socks are absolutely perfect. I wish they were the every game look.

For the most part I agree. I just don't like that the gold pants are triple striped, as is the helmet, but the jerseys are double striped on the sleeves. With the way players wear jerseys today, with the sleeve nearly pushed up to the shoulder, I think having stripes on the sleeve is kinda pointless.

Keep the current "gold" pants, keep the helmet, but remove the white stripes. For the jersey, tone it down. Remove the stripes from the sleeve, and get rid of the gold trim around the numbers so you end up with something like this:

totally in agreement with all that. it kind of makes me think of the current giants uniforms. they have very little flair as far as striping around the sleeves and numbers. The jerseys are just solid blue. It looks sharp and classic at the same time.
