      The Redskins have opened their 2019 season with two losses. Both against Divisional foes. Now they get to close out Week 3 at home on Monday Night against the visiting 1-1 Chicago Bears. The Bears don't have much of an offense but seem to have what may be an elite defense.
       
      On the flip side, the Redskins have a developing passing attack and a disastrous defense. The Redskins haven't had a Defense this vanilla since Mike Nolan received his ice cream. Oh, and the Redskins already have more guys on IR then any other team this season. 
       
      Will the Redskins finally put one in the win column? 
       
      As usual, poll closes at kickoff. Go vote!

Home - WHITE/ BURGUNDY pants

Away - BURGUNDY Jersey/white pants

No question.................:point2sky :cheers:

and

21 on all the helmets ;)

Impossible because almost every other team wears their darks at home. For equality and fashion sake we should wear Burgundy with gold pants at home, and white with burgundy pants on the road.

I think the 70th anniversary jerseys are true burgundy color. The 1970's George Allen jerseys were more red, IMO. These are a little more darker, but not a true burgundy.

So let's say that Mooch pulls it out and get sthe job after all. Should we expect the same "upgrade" to the Skins digs? Of course I am referring to his stints in San Fran and Detroit and both teams instant addition to black lining/backing to there uniforms.

I hope we change our unis to a retro look (like the Giants and Jets have done in recent years).

Any of our throwbacks from the past 5 years would be a cool start. I'd like for us to wear dark at home though. I would like to look back and have the home whites be a predominantly Gibbs thing.

Oh yea, the hideous black jerseys that the Lions wear from time to time....some teams are identified with certain colors....black is not the Lions color.

So no one thinks there is a compromise of sorts? Burgundy pants / White Jerseys = the standard, no question. But why not mix it up? Why not wear the 70th and 75th Uniforms a few times. Why not wear Yellow Pants / Burgundy Jerseys like in the 70's. The Gibbs classic look is indeed classic, but just mix it up now and then. 14 times a year with the same uniform gets old.

14 games? I think your looking at the 1977 schedule. But you're right. A different jersey and helmet every game. What if, one game, we wore the Redskin's jerseys but let the players were their college helmets? Like the pro bowl guys wear their team helmets? I think that would be bad ass.

I think he meant that we typically wear the white tops 14 times per year (we wear burgundy at Dallas and usually one other time on the road).

you are correct sir :cheers:

I forgot who, but whoever said yellow pants/burgundy jerseys for home, burjundy pants / white jerseys for road games made a good call. I think that would be ideal upon further review.

Everyone's been making fun of Zorn's "maroon and black" gaffe, but keep in mind that he also knew we were in the Hall of Fame game next year before any of the pseudo-geniuses on this board. So, maybe Danny, Vinny, and Jimmy are in the process of creating a black jersey/pants combo to be worn at FedEx Field next year for an intimidating "blackout." :laugh:

I think Zorn was just nervous, which is understandable seeing how this was his first press conference and it was a HUGE press conference (broadcast on ESPN, NFL, etc.). If the worst thing he does is screw up the names of the teams colors, I'll be fine with that.

I am a fan of the Classic Look myself, but I decided to see if JLC had any insight on it...

he basically said:

"The dude is just clueless - no idea of the colors"

What pisses me off more than Zorn getting the colors wrong is when people spell "burgundy" >>> "burgandy".

There is something a little funny about "Redskins fans" that want a uniform change. I question their loyalty.

How can you question my loyalty if I say I want to see the Burgundy jersey's with the Gold pants?

Since the 2006 season is about to start, I'd like to propose a uniform change for next season.

Let's get rid of the 'white' uniform, and bring back the Burgandy & Gold.

Here are my proposals:

Home Games: Burgandy tops, with Gold Numbers/Names, Gold Pants with Burgandy stripes on each side of the pants seam. Helmet: Gold Helmet with Burgandy "R" surrounded by Burgandy circle of feathers, with Burgandy stripe down center of helmet - i.e.; "Lombardi Helmet."

Away Games: Gold Tops, with Burgandy Numbers/Names, Burgandy pants with Gold stripes on each side of pants seam. Helmet: Burgandy Helmet with Gold "R" surrounded by Gold circle of feathers, with Burgandy stripe down center of helmet.

Comments???

Yeah. Yuck!
