The Redskins unveiled their throwbacks earlier this year and they will be pulling them out of the closet this Sunday when they play the Carolina Panthers in Week 9. The uniforms are as old school as you can get, but done extremely well by the folks at Nike. Fittingly the uniforms will be worn as the ‘Skins have their “homecoming” celebration, which is when old players and coaches will be honored at FedEx Field prior to the game. Here is a description of the throwbacks: “Redskins owner Dan Snyder and his staff worked closely with Nike to create a look that spoke to the club’s unique heritage, while highlighting several key details that helped define the team’s history. The alternate anniversary uniform is a balance between history and tradition, featuring a rich darker color palate and updated numbering system. It is a modern interpretation of those worn back in 1937 — a year signifying the team’s move from Boston to Washington, D.C., as well as their first national championship. The patch on the shoulder is one that was worn in early team history. The design also pays tribute to 1937 QB Slingin Sammy Baugh, who in his first year in the league led the newly relocated Redskins to their first national championship.” Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
