      ES Coverage Cowboys vs Redskins 2019
       
      9/15/19
       
      Do I look like I'm playing? I'm not playing. This is the Washington Redskins versus the Dallas Cowboys. If you are a fan of this game, and this one does not get you excited you might want to check your pulse.
       
      Hello my friends it is I, JimmiJo, back for another year of this wonderful thing we call Redskins Football. This makes season 14 for me. I am joined by The Spaceman Spiff who will hereafter be known as "The Spaceman Spiff." 
       
      Where's that dude that gets the big tattoos on his back? There's his next one.
       
      So how important is this game? I don't know. What is the different between 1-1 and 0-2? The difference between batting .500 and zippy?
       
      Throw in that this is their 2nd division game to start the year AND a home game and you have a critical match.
       
      And once again they contend with critical injuries to start the year. Last year it was  their rookie star running back. This year its their 2nd year star...well you get the rest.  Darrius Guice is gone and not coming back this year. I think this really hurts him moving forward. Not sure who will build a scheme around him given his first two seasons.
       
      So it is down to the veteran Adrian Peterson. I have no worries of ring rust for hum. None whatsoever. He knows what to do.
       
      Anyway, almost time. Please share your thoughts.
       
      Stand by...

Black should not be on any part of the Redskins uniform. Black jerseys are just another way to sell more merchandise.

How long till this thread gets merged?

Didn't someone mention an all-burgundy uni a la (cough) Ravens (cough)? Seriously, I think burgundy top and pants would be worth seeing at least once.

Failing that - a maroon, yellow and black ensemble might be quite fetching too!

actually i saw a black sean talyor jersey on ebay that looked pretty cool. black with burgundy numbers trimmed in gold. that wouldnt be bad. the throwbacks they wore this past year vs the giants were nice too.

VT did an all maroon (with some black and orange) thing for our game against Boston College last year. That always looks badass. :whoknows:

I think the black with BURGANDY might look cool, but if Zorn wants maroon, I have no problem with that whatsoever :D

Let's go back to these.

I dig the USC look.

This looks like the uni we wore at home against the NYG in Sept. but we wore the white jersey instead. However, the pants were a brighter yellow than they were in the early 70s like in this pic.

In all seriousness, white jerseys at home is a Redskins tradition. I will be FURIOUS if Daniel M. Snyder changes it again.

Then what about the gold/yellow pants with burgundy jersey's at home? That's tradition too, no? I mean think of all the great Skins from the 60's and 70's. George Allen, Sonny, Lombardi, Charlie Taylor, Sam Huff - pretty good tradion there, and they didn't wear white at home.

Maybe Zorn got the idea that the Redskins' colors were Maroon and Black because he visited ES, and saw the color scheme for this website. :silly:

Actually Burgundy jerseys (w-gold letters & trim) with black pants and burgundy socks and black cleats would look great. I like the current burgundy jerseys, but don't like the white pants.

I'm not sure how I feel about not wearing white at home. On the one hand, I agree it's a Joe Gibbs thing, but on the other hand, we just don't look right in the burgandy tops with white bottoms. If we don't wear white at home, I'd be in favor of the '60s/70's color scheme for our "dark" uniform.

I really like our "light" uniform. The only change I'd agree to make would be to introduce Sean Taylor Stripes. I can't get enough of those!

Gibbs has always liked the white tops, which is why the home unis have been that way for the last 4 years. So will our home uniforms be burgandy now that he's gone?
