      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.

Ya seriously. Look how stupid these guys look:

Oh wait...

Might have looked good back then, but this is the 21st century. Hell I would have taken black uniforms over these... Its like they took the 1994 uniforms, ripped off the Starter logo and put a Nike swoosh there. :puke: :deadhorse:

Ah, you are referring to yellow ;)

Yeah, by "gold" I mean yellowish...I'll take that over the tan look of that throwback. The jerseys are pretty cool, but together with the pants looks too much like Boston College to me.

Its the 80th anniversary. And you want them to come out with new space age unis? What would be the point of that?

Jeez. You people are so annoying.

They are kind of Meh. We have seen them before in 1994. I would actually prefer buying the Mitchell and Ness verison. At least you get the cool looking NFL 75th diamond on the chest.

I understand that the point of the brown helmets is to look like leather helmets, but it just comes off as gimmicky and stupid. I don't understand why the pants are not redskins gold though.

Fans preach to other teams that we have a greater history than them.

Team honors history with uniforms of a former era.

Fans boo the uniforms.

:doh:

What's the deal with the helmets...Does it still have the Redskins logo on there or just a different color and no logo at all?

That's pretty cool doing that with the helmets. I don't think anybody else has ever done that.

I hope we wear them during a rainy slug it out kind of game, because they definitely have a punch you in the mouth look and would look great with a lot of mud on them.

It's matte brown to look like the old leather helmets. No logo.

Don't get why people are ****ing about this. Really.

In 1994, we recognized the first set of uniforms we wore.

In 2002, we recognized and acknowledged the spear helmets and spear logos

In 2007 we recognized the Lombardi era unis.

And now we return to our roots.

But yeah, let's sit here and ***** because the pants aren't gold/tan/yellow/brown/whatever ****ing little thing we can complain about enough.

No respect for history.

Yeah I've always found it weird that Skins fans always refer to the traditional phrase "the burgundy and gold", but if you sit back and look at it their uniforms haven't actually been "burgundy and gold" for over 70 years. They've slowly but surely shifted the colors more towards brighter reds and yellows and away from the original colors that gave rise to the "burgundy and gold" moniker

Let's not forget these will be the first official throwbacks we've had since Mr. Sammy Baugh's death.

But yea, probably should have went with something "cooler".

They are the same as the 75th aniv throwbacks. The helmet should have been something gather than just plain burgundy...they wimped out when they could have taken the '56-64 feather helmet

Rg3 will sell a fewof these jerseys for them
