      The Bill Callahan era began here at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. For the first quarter it was really,really bad football being played by both teams. 
      The Redskins were determined to establish the Run game. The First Quarter all they established was that they still couldn’t run. Or pass. Or do much of anything. 
       
      It wasn’t until the 2nd Quarter that Peterson was able to start ripping the worst Run D in the League for chunks of 18 & 24 yards. The Skins managed to score a TD with a 25 yard pass to Scary Terry McLaurin. 
       
      The Dolphins would open the Second Half only managing five plays before the Redskins would get the ball punted back to them. They would run a balanced run/pass attack of six plays for 70 yards in 1:25 ending in McLaurin’s second touchdown of the day. The Defense would then get a turnover allowing the Offense to get to Field Goal range and add another 3 points to make the score 17-3. 
       
      To open the Fourth Quarter, Hopkins would miss a 55 yard Field Goal, leaving the score at 17-3.  After being sacked five times, the Dolphins would pull their own switcharoo at QB and go to Ryan “Neckbeard” Fitzpatrick which resulted in a touchdown drive for them, making it 17-10. They went for & recovered the Onside Kick. They also managed to not score any points after that. The Dolphins would find theirselves with ball at the 2:00 Warning. Fitzpatrick would take them on a 9 play 75 yard touchdown drive with six seconds remaining on the clock. Miami went for the win with the 2 Point Conversion and failed. The Redskins would recover the onside kick by Miami and Keenum took a knee to get the Redskins their first win of the season.

The white jersey burgandy pants or burgundy jersey white pants represent the Super Bowl seasons for me 

The gold pants are ok but kinda represent the Shanahans seasons to me at least

Yes but during our SuperBowl seasons we NEVER wore the white pants at home, That was always a road uni when we played at Dallas and what seemed to always be at Arizona, sometimes Philly.

 

Like I said the only time we consistently wore the Burgundy Jersey on  white pants at home was during the Marty Shotteinheimer era

and pre-Gibbs.  Beathard intro'd them in 79 or 80 and I'm pretty sure we did the standard color at home, white away until Gibbs

Maybe they decided to retire the gold pants and it will be all burgandy and white combinations for the foreseeable future 

We can only hope & pray!  The mustard yellow is awful and needs to stay away!

That's pretty short-sighted. The gold pants actually have a longer track record here than white pants do. I don't think we got white pants until after Allen's tenure (maybe while Pardee was here). We wore some type of gold pants from the 30s through the 70s.

 

So, yes, from time to time during the Super Bowl years we'd have to wear the white pants (it was rare simply because we chose to wear traditional "road" unis at home so we only ended up wearing "home" unis when we'd bump into another team who shared that philosophy), but I wouldn't say they were emblematic of that time period. 

 

If we are going to stay with dark jerseys at home, I wouldn't mind the gold pants. But, I'd love us to eventually go back to white-over-burgundy at home. That would be cool.

I want an angry face or a thumbs down in the likes section.  That color is great and frankly I wish we had an alternate jersey in it

The yellow pants are gross!  Not as bad with the burgundy jerseys but an absolute atrocity with the white jerseys! Lol

the yellow pants with the burgundy jerseys are gorgeous, however they look washed out with the white jerseys and they should never have been paired

Can we just agree that gold jerseys on burgundy pants would be an atrocity? Or gold on gold? I think I remember there were some barbarians that liked our all gold color rush uniforms, but they were barbarians.

Agree with the gold pants in the 70s but personally for me I never got to see the Redskins play every week on television until after the Colts left Baltimore by that time the gold pants were shelved

The gold pants will forever remind me of Bruce Allen. When he got here he made the switch to honor his daddy’s team.

 

The sooner he gets canned the better

We typically only wore the Burgandy on White when we played at Dallas and at NYG.  Dallas and NYG both wore (at the time) white at home.  My memory says that the Eagles and Cardinals wore color at home, but I was like 8-12, so my memory might be somewhat faulty. 

 

But absolutely remember about Dallas and NYG.  In fact, I remember a story somewhere from WAY back that said the 'Skins only wore the Burgundy jerseys twice a year....

 

One of the things they used to say about the Cowboys is that you always wanted to put them into the blues, because they just didn't look like the cowboys.  Which might have been the genesis of the white jerseys at home. Dallas also only wore the blues on the road at Washington and NYG.  And NYGs only wore the blues at Dallas and Washington.  It was like NFC East version of Kriss Kross

Mostly right...the Giants have ALWAYS been a blue-at-home team. During the Gibbs era, we never needed burgundy jerseys to play them (home or away). Dallas was always white at home. The other two (Philly and Arizona) seemed to mix and match. So, occasionally we'd wear the darks on the road against those teams, but not always (I'm guessing there was rhyme or reason to it maybe with heat or something).

Then there was another team that always wore white at home, because I distinctly remember the story that we had to break out the burgundy tops twice a year.  Maybe it was the Cards. I thought it was the Giants.  Or maybe the Giants wore white at home when they played Dallas to put Dallas in the blues, because that was a thing...

 

God, the 80's were so long ago.  I found out I needed "progressive lenses" yesterday.  Or modern day bifocals.  I'm getting old.

One school of thought about Gibbs preferring to wear white at home was that he was influenced by his time in Tampa and San Diego. Tampa has been known to wear white at home often (not exclusively) and during the Air Coryell years in San Diego (Gibbs was the O Coordinator), the Chargers wore white at home full-time.

It was usually up for grabs with Philly or Arizona (only after they moved to Arizona). I think early in the year they'd wear white at home and then later in the year they'd switch to dark. So, if we played in Arizona or Philly in the first few games of the year, we'd be in our burgundy jerseys. That plus Dallas and sometimes a random other opponent (Tampa for example), is really all I can remember from the Gibbs years.

Remember at the old Texas stadium they would put a Redskins logo colored pad at the bottom of one of the goal posts and that stupid cowboys mascot would use it as a punching bag
