      In today's Divisional Debacle, the Defense under Greg Manusky in the first half, gave up 207 yards of offense (105 rushing/102 passing) and two touchdowns.  That said, they did manage a single INT on which the Offense actually managed to score a touchdown off of. They allowed 12 of 16 passes to be completed . 
       
      In the second half it was 107 yards given up (58 rushing//49 passing) a field goal and a touchdown. They traded their first half pick for a second half sack. However, Dallas completed all five of their pass attempts. 
       
      Don't read that thinking "Well it seems like they tightened up some in the 2nd half."  They didn't. They simply had about half the plays in the second half. 30 plays in the First and 18 in the Second.
       
      So far in two Divisional matchups, the Defense has faltered in the Second half. They start out like a house of fire for the first few drives until their opponents gradually make adjustments. This Defensive coaching staff fails make any adjustments, whether in game or at the very least at Halftime. They've given up over 30 points per game for a total of 63 points given up in two games. While the Bears are up next, the Pats await and they've put up over 70 points in two games. Yeah. Ok. They did shut out the Dolphins today which is looking like the NFL version of ... ahem... shooting fish in a barrel. 
       
      The frustrating thing is Manusky is the DC that the Front Office actively looked to replace during the off season without firing him. When you know they're looking to replace you, most people would make a concentrated effort to show an improvement. Yet Manusky's Defense still keeps acting like it's starring in Groundhog Day.
       
      In his post game presser, when asked directly about if any coaching changes would be made, Gruden said "No, I think after two games – you’re talking about playing two very good offensive football teams and two of the best offensive lines in pro football we just played back-to-back. That’s no excuse whatsoever, but I don’t think we need to hit the panic button yet. We just have to continue to focus on what we can do better to win. Get Jonathan [Allen] in here, get a couple of our corners back in here and let’s go back and strap it up against Chicago [Bears] next week and see what happens.” 
       
      Here's another frustrating thing. The defensive communication was an issue last season as well. Wasn't this supposed to have been worked on during OTA's and Training Camp? It's understandable that the rookies would still be on a learning curve, but NFL vets like Collins and DRC you'd think they would have down by the start of the season. 
       
      Gruden said they're a very talented group on Defense but that they weren't reaching them. When questioned as to why the coaching staff that has been in place for several years, wasn't reaching them, he defended the comment as them being a young defense. “We have some moving parts now. Landon Collins is a veteran guy but this is his first year, [Montez] Sweat’s in his first year, [Cole] Holcomb, it’s his first year, [Jon] Bostic is in his first year. We’re playing Dominique [Rodgers-Cromartie] at corner and this is Jimmy Moreland’s first year, so it’s not like we are the most experienced group. We feel like were very talented, but we`re still fighting through somethings. There are a lot of things to look forward to, without a doubt, but we do have to play better and strap it up and get back to work."

Looks like a 9ers jersey.

I'll vote the ghetto shadow jerseys with black pants. That would be hot yo.

I'm thinking of something like an off-white, maybe egg shell. Perhaps with some magenta or honeydew.

Ooooh now that's dreamy. Now how about a butter cream bottom with a merlot top, framed with goldenrod accents.

How

Divine!

:flowers: :adoration :bow:

I think they look pretty cool but not for a whole season. Am I the only one that thinks they kind of look like they came out of Any Given Sunday?

have we ever worn Burgandy on Burgandy?

Nope, no burgundy on burgundy that anyone can recall. I think their jerseys are a slightly different shade than the pants. What about the 70th Throwbacks? Nope, just checked, that was burgundy on very gold pants. I like that look better than this year's throwback but hey that's just me.

Both the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles are doing 75th Anniversary Uniforms this year too. Pittsburgh will wear them twice and the Eagles will wear them once. For Philly they will have a patch on there regular uniforms for all the other games. In any event, they both have the jerseys for sale online. :logo:

So this should be close to what we'll see.

I think this would look better if the yellow were changed to a gold...much like the 49ers use. Maybe gold helmet and stripes but white pants.

I kind of like the mustard pants. They are growing on me a little anyway. Maybe a little more "mus" and a little less "turd" though.

I take it the throwback jerseys will be burgundy then with the yellow/mustard pants and black shoes? Very cool, can't wait to see them on the field.

I think I may be in the minority posting in this thread but I prefer our current uniforms, especially our current helmet. I did like out 70th anniversy unis as I thought they looked pretty cool.

What I do like is how we are going to showcase this retro-uni against the fish, with hopefully with the same results as Superbowl XVII vice VIII in "73.:logo:

The Redskins played the Dolphins in Super Bowl VII, not VIII. Dolphins played Minnesota in SB VIII. They won 24-7.

Actually those white jerseys as I have read so far are the jerseys we wear the rest of the season in all other games - regular white jersey just with a patch - the actual retro jersey pics we have not seen yet.

I think I am right on this, but I guess we'll see.

Here's the 75th jersey:
