Are the Redskins wearing throwbacks this Thursday?

Quote

"At the locker next to Compton, linebacker Su’a Cravens was inspecting the new cleats he got for Thursday’s game, featuring the Redskins' spear logo."

Thanksgiving will be white on burgundy. Dallas is going blue

 

Odd, they always do white at home!  Except for throwbacks, but their throwbacks involve a white helmet, so not sure if they are wearing them.  Interesting...

Yeah, they tweeted out their combination for Thursday's game.  Navy away jerseys with the throwback white pants.

Whoa. Dallas is going blue?  Images of Gary Hogeboom and curse of the Cowpies playing dark blue.

 

I don't want to jinx things (knock wood), but good things happen when we wear white at Dallas.  2005 and 2012 come to mind.

My understanding was that the Redskins color rush jerseys were only designed for fans to purchase. The plan was always to use traditional/throwback uniforms on thanksgiving.

Skins need to do their sleeve striping like the Giants are for their throwbacks. Then we can actually see the stripes on a player not named  Kirk Cousins.

If it's just a color change, it's pretty forgettable. If it comes along with something more drastic it could be interesting. Either way, good find!

Probably just the subtle change needed to make the throwbacks not clash with the current helmet color due to stupid NFL helmet rule. Thats my guess at least.

Helmet clashing with our current helmets aside, those throwbacks are great uniforms. I'd love it if we stuck to them and made slight changes to our logo personally.

Agreed. I would love the throwbacks as our regular home unis.

I like the darker burgundy like the throwbacks. I like that darker shade.  Still hate the mustard yellow pants tho!

I like the darker burgundy too, but I love the mustard pants.  I wouldn't mind seeing them darkened up slightly as well though.  

 

Here is a gold hex code I like:

It's still more yellow than that hideous khaki gold color that the 49ers use (and the Redskins use for the throwbacks), but a little darker than the current gold.

The 49ers gold is much better than the yellow pants we wear.

I personally think the 49ers have one of the best unis.  Their gold pants look batter than our mustard yellow pants, for sure.

This is my periodic public service announcement to remind our fans that the shade of gold in the uniform in called "Maize". As in corn. Because our mascot is a Native American and the Native Americans created corn by selective breeding. Did you know that corn cannot live in the wild? It is wholly dependent on humans to distribute its seed and grow and pass on it genes.

 

So for the love of all that is awesome with football and native horticulture, stop calling our shade of gold "Mustard." It is "Maize." 

 

Thank you for your attention.

At least make the helmets match the throwbacks.  I know it was due to the leather ones being outlawed, but that mismatch has gone on far too long to not be taken care of by now.  Looks super scrubby

Right, I would love that older version of the logo to become the new logo. I think that would be pretty cool and mirror what the Jets and Giants both did a while back.
