I'm ready for a change as well. I'd love it if the white home jerseys were remembered as a *mostly* Gibbs thing (even though Norv continued the tradition when he was hired).

Not me. I'm a huge fan of the whites at home. Keep'em Zorn!

I don't mind burgundy jerseys at home as long as they aren't with the white pants. With the exception of the Cowboys game in Dallas back in 2005...I have terrible memories with those unis. Plus, they're just horrid looking!

I don't think it is at the top of Zorn's priority list. :)

Does Zorn even get the say so of what color the Redskins home/away game uniforms will be?

Not sure if Zorn will be consulted, but Gibbs was in fact consulted when he came to DC in '81. I asked him about it at the time. He said he chose white because he said it was what he was used to (which probably referred to the Chargers wearing white at home when he was an assistant there). Man, I had no idea then what history was about to be made in those white jerseys!

As someone who remembers as far back as Lombardi, I miss the burgundy at home but, like a lot of people, I'm don't like the white pants too much. I'm definitely not in favor of burgundy pants, though.

The best course is probably to just keep the Gibbs white jersey/burgundy pants combo. It's what people are used to and obviously it brings back the best memories we've had as Skins fans.
