That’s what it appears to be as the GM Bruce Allen was on a local radio show on ESPN Sports Talk 980. While on the “Sports Fix” with Kevin Sheehan, Allen openly discussed the uniform pants and eluded to the Redskins wearing “gold pants” at some point this season.
Sheehan: I don’t think this would be any kind of state secret, but have you decided or has Mike Shanahan decided what you’re gonna wear at home this year, uniform-wise?
Allen: Yes, we have discussed that. And are you asking about the gold pants?
Sheehan: Well, I want to hear what you say, and then I’ll follow up.
Allen (laughing): I’m looking at a beautiful pair of gold pants right here in my office right now, in that new office.
