      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.

I thought Orakpo said our alternate was gonna be "crazy"? That's not really crazy.

I hope they are true throwbacks like the Steelers 80th. I want the '34 Indian head on the front of the jersey.

Am I the only one hoping they aren't throwbacks? I'm honestly not too sure any of our old uniforms would look good with the updated Nike-style jersey, maybe with the exception of the spear and feather. Fingers crossed they're new uniforms altogether.

The Indian head jersey would be cool.

Those would be really cool. The reason I dont think it will be those however is, the players number must be on the front and back of the jersey.

Number Size

All players' football jerseys must have numbers on both the front and back of the jersey, and these numbers must be at least 8 inches tall and 4 inches wide. Jerseys also need to have smaller numbers on the upper arms or tops of the shoulders. Some teams have uniforms with numbers on the helmets or on the pants as well, but these are not required.

I'm not sure how that would work with the Indian head logo.

Yeah I figured it probably wouldn't fall within the rules. There is really no way they could do it unless they replace the current Indian head on the helmet with the '34 version.

That might work. Something like this :

Does anyone have any idea when the 80th Anniversary Press Conference is today? I have looked everywhere and all i can find out is that today is the day however no one lists a time...

MODS If this thread belongs in another thread please shut down... i searched and only found a thread about the 80th anniversary bus and Jersey thread.

That logo reminds me a lot of the one we wore a few years ago with the yellow helmet. I hope to god our 80th anniversary uniforms are nothing like those.

I don't want them to wear throwbacks. We always seem to suck when we wear them, so I associate throwbacks with losing. I just want the normal Skins unis.

Live stream on Redskins.com???

No not that I am aware. Skins are actually invited a few groups of season ticket holders to pre-view the plans for 80th anniversary along with the uniforms. Media will be present as well so twitter will be the first place the uniforms hit unless skins release info on the www.redskins80th.com right after they are displayed.

Hopefully RG III and Fletch are the models, I'm pretty stoked to see them!

I rather it be some players who are good but aren't getting that much attention.

Let Riley, Kerrigan, and Helu show them off....

The highlight of the event will be the unveiling of the team's 2012 alternate Nike uniforms.

The uniforms will blend historical elements from the team's past, with a new-age look for the future.

It would be sweet if the gloves for this uniform formed the redskins spear logo instead of the standard logo that nike has on all the new team gloves

Well not that it's specifically uniform related, but the Skins shop now has a bunch of exclusive 80th anniversary swag on sale, some cool shirts and other logo-related stuff:

Hmm... not sure where you're getting the pants and jersey, but it definitely looks like a good case for the yellow "R" helmet, which, I mean it's cool and all, but I would've rather seen the burgundy feather helmet that LL56 has been tweeting, since we've done the yellow "R" so much more recently:
