      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.

If that's true...it means we are again giving a minor nod to the Gibbs era over the George Allen era (which is good, in my opinion). 

 

I like that we wear dark at home...but also like a little wink to the 1980s in the Dallas rivalry by forcing them to wear their darks in DC. A subtle, but classy move!

 

Edit from the article: 

 

Archer also notes that Dallas will wear their road blues on the road against the Redskins. For older Cowboys fans, this is incredible. There is something that just screams NFC East about Cowboys blues against Redskins whites in Washington. It’s classic and should be done more often.

 

I dunno man, I still have nightmares of Rocket Ismail opening day '99

  • The Washington Redskins will play their first "Color Rush" game on Thursday night against the Dallas Cowboys.
  • The Redskins are supposed to wear all-gold uniforms, but the team feels they are garish.
  • As of Wednesday morning, the team is said to be ignoring the NFL and will wear all-burgundy instead.

Well since you're too damn lazy to read the Rules, just go ahead & do it. What's the worst that could happen? :)

The Redskins should have just stuck to their regular burgundy on white for this game. Who cares it it is Dallas. Why the heck do we want to change just for the sake of getting them to wear their blues?

I know we use to wear whites at home in the Gibbs I era. But we wear burgundy at home now. Stick with it.

Which has nothing to do with your original question. You wear the white jersey to put them in their blue jersey because they hate playing in them. They tend to lose wearing them. And they're currently 0-3 in road games this year. :)

Redskins social media has updated the logo and the merchandise leads me to believe the same as usual.

 

What I would expect:

-  Normal Burgundy Helmet (NFL Rules, can only have 1 helmet, so cannot change helmet color)

-  The gray facemask they have done last year or the past two years, I think it's been 2

-  No stripes on helmet, with same logo.  I personally wish they'd throw the "old school" logo on the helmet

-  Standard throwback jersey - Dark Bugundy with Gold (not the yellow gold) numbers/trim

- Gold (not the yellow gold) pants

I don't understand why they don't just chuck a logo on the helmet. The color can't match (unless you put a big-ass decal that is the right color) but the logos should at least match.

I hate the new throwbacks we have been wearing the past few years, More so the helmets than anything else, Just looks like the equipment manager got lazy and decided to leave the stripes off. The Jersey and pants are cool though :)
