Thursday Night Football this week features a divisional clash between the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys. With both teams at 5-6, two games back of the Atlanta Falcons for the NFC’s second Wild Card berth, the matchup will be critical to each of these teams’ playoff hopes.
Naturally, some of the discussion in Redskins camp before the game is about what they’ll be wearing.
According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Washington does not want to wear the uniforms because of how ugly they are.
Team president Bruce Allen has long been against the Color Rush jerseys, even going so far as to propose banning them at a league meeting earlier this year (the other owners weren’t on board). His reason? The uniforms are “garish.”
The team still reportedly doesn’t know what uniforms they’ll be wearing, and is still evaluating its options.
The Redskins game in Dallas tomorrow is a regular Thursday night game. Comcast SportsNet reported Tuesday that the team is still exploring its options with regard to not wearing the uniforms.
As his press conference Tuesday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he didn’t know which uniforms the team would take the field in on Thursday night.
It’s normally pretty easy to take potshots at the Redskins, but when you look at these jerseys…well, it makes more sense.
Yikes. They look like rotting bananas. I see Allen’s point here.
