      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.

Awesome! Although a little presumptuous with the #10 thing. At least wait for Gaffney to be traded for next to nothing before publicly taking the guy's number. :silly:

May 10th makes sense as a date to release the alternates. Draft RG3, let everyone buy jerseys. Reveal alternate a few weeks later, watch everyone buy RG3 jerseys in that. I'm hoping the alternate is something new. The Redskins have changed their unis a ton and I'm ready to see something new.

I really hope we go with a variation of the blue 1942 jersey, Anyway it is great marketing. Draft RG3, buy jersey, release alternates, buy jersey. $$$$$

I wouldn't mind those, that feather down the middle of the helmet is growing on me a bit.

But, please, this time let's get the entire head-to-toe look historically correct, unlike the 70th Anniversary uniforms, which had the spear logo on the pants and jersey sleeves. Also, it would be nice if they did away with the NFL shield and Nike logos on the throwback unis, too (not likely to happen, though, especially given the amount of money that Nike put on the table).

:helmet: :bluesbros:

We've done the Spear helmet for the 70th, the "R" for the 75th, I think for the 80th, they should do the Feather helmet:

And if you want to count the NFL 75th Anniversary Season of 1994, they wore their regular burgundy helmets (without the stripes and logos) with their throwback uniforms of that season. :helmet: :bluesbros:

I had a dream last night and the Blue jerseys were our throwback. The strange thing was that they were wearing blue pants too. The good news is we were up 14-3 at the half. RGIII scrambled and threw a TD pass at one point and it was a thing of beauty.

So what's going on with these rumors that the gold pants won't be around anymore? They were the best tweak to our uniforms in decades. If Nike doesn't want to make them we need to stand up as fans and demand the continuation of the gold pants.

They wore those away at The Vagiants. I was at that Game. Freisz was our QB.

The NFL only allows you to have a home,away,and a alternate uniform. The gold pants we have been wearing are part of the 75th anniversary uniform which has been our alternate so it allowed us to use the pants like we have been. The Nike 80th anniversary unis will not have the same style of gold pants and probably wouldn't work with the normal home,away uniform. The alternate uniform may have a different style gold pants and the team likleywill wear the alternate at home this year.

During sportsnight on comcast sportsnet yesterday they were talking about the redskins and the graphic behind Julie Donaldson had the 80th anniversay logo. I hope it was not the official one because all they did was update the 75th with 80 and 1932-2012.

Still no pics? Damn, what we got another week?

The alternate uniforms will be "previewed" at an event on May 10. So, three days.

I hope they continue to exploit that and wear the gold pants. Everyone agrees they are the freshest pants in existence. The freshness cannot be rivaled.

They are definitely dope, except I think dijon-mustard yellow pants, instead of French's-mustard yellow pants, would look sick paired with a very, very dark burgundy (almost black) throwback jersey, with white numbers and gold name lettering.

Those are the best ones. I just wish they could change the gray facemask....

Seriously. The gray facemask looks ridiculous. Gold masks would look sick on that uni though.

The 70th anniversary throwbacks are definately my favorite uniforms. I hope we go with some kind of upgraded version of those.

For the most part, I like them too. The colors particularly. The jersey is a bit too busy for me, as I'm not a fan of the stripes with the arrow, plust the large numbers on the shoulder pads. I'd just tone is down some, and that's it, so something like this:

Actually - as for the pants in a uniform, teams are permitted to wear "Pursuant to the official colors established for each NFL club in the League Constitution and Bylaws,

playing squads are permitted to wear only those colors or a combination of those colors for helmets, jerseys, pants, and stockings" (Section 4 article 2), and the Redskins official colors are:

"Washington Redskins - Burgandy and yellow-gold" (NFL Constitution Bylaws 19:9)

So you can still see them. No worries
