Redskins likely to wear Burgundy at home all year

The question is will it be with gold pants?

Dan Steinberg reported that the Cowboys will be wearing white at Fed Ex field on September 12th, for the season opener.

Someone ratchet up the Redskins gold pants alert level from “gold” to “really really gold.” A Cowboys official has confirmed to me that Dallas will be wearing white tops in FedEx Field on Sept. 12. That means the Redskins will be wearing burgundy tops. Throw in some gold pants, and the above magic could be recreated.

“Usually, Washington wears its white jerseys at home but new coach Mike Shanahan is changing that,”’s Nick Eatman wrote on the True Blue blog, via Extreme Skins. “So the Sept. 12 opener will see the Redskins wear their reds.”

Could it be just for the opener?  Well I check the next opponent at Fed Ex, the Texans, and saw they would be wearing white at Fed Ex Field. In recent years, the Skins have been wearing white at home early in the season, and vs. Dallas, and burgundy late as the colder weather set in.  It really looks like we will be seeing a new team on the field come this September.  Can’t wait!

Reds? Anyhow, the Cowboys official I spoke with confirmed that the Cowboys will be in white for the opener, and said that uniform choices were due to the league on June 1.
