      The home team fans are at home, these games no longer matter, and it’s probably better for the team to lose than it is to win.  It must be December in Washington.  Welcome to week 15!

      There are two camps for Redskins fans at this time of year.  Those that want to tank and those that want to win.  If this describes you, I want you to know something important. You’re wrong.  You should probably feel bad about it too, but that’s your business.  The right way to go about this, is simply to embrace the doublethink.  
       
      Before and after the game it’s perfectly reasonable to acknowledge that losing has its advantages.  It does and it is undeniable.  Afterall we could be talking about the difference between Chase Young being in a Redskins uniform, or not.  What we need for that to happen is simple.  Redskins lose out.  Giants beat the Dolphins and Redskins.  Dolphins beat the Bengals.  All of these things are perfectly reasonable outcomes.  We’re that close to having an elite pass rusher.   
       
      Before that happens, we have a game to play.  It is in this moment that we should embrace the other side of our demented doublethink.  While the game is being played, especially against a division opponent, fans should want their team to do well.  Assuming they have a soul and any decency.  There is just no way that I can root for the Eagles to beat the Redskins during a game.  If you are the type of fan that does this, I hope you find someone that can fix what has broken inside of you.   
       
      Pregame Prediction:  Redskins 23 – Eagles 30  
      More interesting game we are missing because we are still watching the Redskins:  Packers – Bears  
      Things I am snacking on:  Brownie.   
      Number of colons used:  Six.  (so far)  
       
      Check back for updates.  I’m going to wander around the room for a while and stretch my legs to get away from a certain well-known ESPN Eagle fan’s boring conversations that my ear phones aren’t blocking out entirely.
       
      1st Quarter Redskins 7 - 3 Eagles
      "The Closer" Haskins showed up for work early today and hit his former college teammate for a touchdown.  He really took the life out of this crowd in *checks notes* Fedex Field. 
       
      2nd Quarter Redskins 14 - 10 Eagles
      This quarter was defined by penalties.  The Redskins made the mistake of lightly hitting an Eagles tight end on the shoulder, and then another by tackling the Eagles QB around the waist.  Refs clearly didn't appreciate the Redskins playing football.
       
      This is the best half of football of Haskins pro career.  The Redskins passing offense as a whole has looked impressive, which... well it just shouldn't be.  Right?  Feels like a trap.  As soon as we start to feel good about it, BOOM they'll tear our hearts out. 
       
      I'll say this much though, Redskins receivers have been running around wide open throughout this first half.  The Redskins should have scored more than 14.
       
      Halftime:  If you had a choice between standing in a relatively long line for ice cream and cookies or nachos and hot dogs which would you choose?  I would go with ice cream.  Unfortunately I didn't realize there were two separate lines, and so I ended up with nachos and disappointment.  Also, I should probably mention Urban Meyer is here.  I bet he got the ice cream.   
       
      3rd Quarter Redskins 14 - 17 Eagles
      Wentz made a good throw, giving his team the lead, and it reminded me that Wentz was once a pretty good QB.  Hasn't looked like it often today.  The Eagles really haven't had a lot of open players for Wentz to throw to, but there is more to it than that.  Wentz looks slow. 
       
      Haskins has out played him through three quarters, and we haven't even reached Haskins best quarter. 
       
      4th Quarter Redskins 27 - 37 Eagles
      Some drunk Redskins fans sitting in front of the press box have recognized a Eagles fan that appears often on CNN and have started knocking on the glass to wave their hands and smile at him now the the Redskins have the lead.  These fans have apparently never learned not to tempt fate.
       
      Redskins defense played fairly well all game but picked the worst possible time to give up a long drive for a touchdown.  The Eagles offense came off the field with a four point lead and less than a minute left in the game.  The fumble return for a touchdown on the aborted hail marry attempt just added insult to injury.  Redskins come up short, for the eleventh time this season. 
       
      End of game thoughts.  Haskins actually looked like a real NFL QB for an entire NFL game.  Not just a drive here or there, but for an entire game Haskins looked like he belonged.  He looked like one of the reasons the Redskins might win the game.  He's shown flashes in the past but nothing like this.  A very encouraging sign for fans that believe he can be a part of the future here. 
       
      The Giants did their part to fall back in the draft, by absolutely dismantling the mighty Dolphins.  May the Giants be victorious, at least one more time this season.  We just need to lose to the Giants and have the Dolphins beat the Bengals, and the Redskins will be sitting alone at 3 wins.  Chase Young could happen.

I live in San Diego (originally from MD), and decided to pop into a department store here called Koels for a few household items.  I decided to buzz by the Men's section and while walking by I noticed the unmistable Burgundy color of a skins jersey.  I stopped dead in my tracks and thought to my self, no way.  I pushed away all the other shirts and there sitting in front of me was an RGIII jersey, just my size.  It as an "on field" jersey, not the game jersey but screened numbers.  Had legit tags etc., and so I brought it up to the counter.  The lady told me that someone must have ordered it off their website and then returned it to the store in San Diego but they didn't carry Skins jerseys there.  It was marked down 50%, so it was $50 instead of $99.00 and of course I snatched it up, feeling like I was meant to walk into the store to get that jersey.  BUT, I put the jersey in my t-shirt drawer and I'm sure some other shirts rubbed against it a little over a couple month persiod, and when I pulled the jersey out I noticed that the screened numbers had some little parts where it seemed the ink was coming off.  I am now wondering if this was just a defect, the ink not curing enough to the fabric, which I know happens screen printing when the dryer does not properly cure the ink.  Or, is this a knock-off.  From what I can tell the tags, and other details of the jersey appear legit.  It was made in Honduras though.  Can anyone tell me if a Nike Jersey made in Honduras would likely be a knock off?

Since this first jersey has pressed letters, it could be the Equipment Manager, in his rush, didn't punch out the tiny middle of that "A". Here are some pics from Haynesworth's first "presentation jersey", courtesy of Matt Terl and The Redskins Blog:

sure there are some here more expert at this than I, but I'm going to say fake. the nfl shield looks crooked, the stitching is messy imo, loose threads all over the place ie not clean/tight. 

 

I'm also in the group of, I don't care if its real or not, if it's what you can afford, you rep the burgundy and gold, and you are happy with it that's all that matters.

Is there any place or way to actually get jerseys with the shortened/cut sleeves like in the Haynesworth pic above? I hate long short sleeves on any shirt and jerseys are the worst. Would much rather have the cut sleeves like the players wear. I'm sure there is no way to actually get that cut though. 

 

Thoughts?

I can't tell if I should be posting this in the Fashion Police thread or this one, but here goes nothing.

 

I missed out on getting a Nike N98 Throwback Track Jacket last year, and this ebay auction popped up with 5 of them in my size:
 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nike-Washington-Redskins-Light-Brown-Retro-N98-Jacket-M-Ret-100-/221247347824?pt=US_Football_Fan_Shop&hash=item33835e9c70

 

The pictures look very over-saturated, which may account for the color looking off.

 

Can anyone with this jacket verify that this is authentic?

 

Seems like a steal at $60 Buy it Now if it's real.

If your not interested in paying the high prices at Meigray, NFL Auction has a 2012 Wilson HOF jersey ending this Thursday.  This jersey has the HOF patch and the burgundy half collar only available for the 2012 season.  I got the Hankerson last week for much less than what MeiGray is charging.

Why not get a personalized Elite with Fletcher #59? Available at both of those places. If a jersey is worth $250, to me it is worth an extra 50 bucks to get what I want.

 

I had a hard time getting my Fletcher Nike Limited (not offered with a personalized option) but did finally get it at Football Fanatics. No special deal for hard to find jersey ($134) but I did get what I was looking for.

I know this reply is like 6 months late, but when the site was revamped I lost this thread and just found it today. Lol. I actually ended up buying a Customized Fletcher Home Elite and it is great quality. Fits me better than the RG3 Elite I have that wasn't customized (same size 40). I plan on wearing it proud later today as Fletch takes the filed for his final home game. I think when I originally bought the knock off Fletcher I was looking for a White jersey and they didn't have the white customized Elite option at that time. I don't have any limited Nike jerseys in my collection, I think I might start buying those going forward.

Looks like not many people have posted in here since we went on the current losing streak in Nov. I know morale is down, but if you still like to collect cool Skins jerseys Mitchell and Ness and NFL shop have Riggins and Theismann Burgandy throwbacks available in most sizes. Riggins $250, Theismann $225. They also have replicas for both, $140 each. I ordered the Riggo authentic last week from Mitchell and Ness site and it arrived yesterday, great jersey! Excellent quality and fit. I was planning to wear it today during Dallas game, but when Fletch made his announcement, my plans changed. Also, I've never worn the proline jerseys that NFL Shop sells, but they have a Charley Taylor throwback available with the old style sleeve stripes from the late 60s/early 70s. I bought it for my Dad for Christmas. Hasn't arrived yet, but I'm interested to see how it looks and feels. I'm sure my Dad won't care, he's not a jersey nerd like me lol, will be his 1st one since the Sonny jersey he used to wear on Sundays when I was a kid back in the 80s. I'm looking for a Darrell Green '02 70th size 48 authentic, Sammy Baugh long sleeve & a Sonny Mitchell and Ness white, let me know if anyone has any leads. Thx!

I've never had a problem wearing jereys of players no longer with the team. I take it as a source of pride. It shows how far back and loyal you are to the team.

No players going to stay with a team forver so if I was worried about that I would never buy a jersey. What would be the point of paying $50-$150 for an article of clothing that has a limited shelf life?

Nike has raised the price on the elites to $295.00 from $250.00, that is even more than the Reebok Authentics from a few years ago.
