Monday Morning Uni Watch

fullj.getty-75557981jj015_st_louis_rams.jpg

My friends, yesterday marked the end of an era. For the first time this season, every member of the San Diego Chargers was wearing an American flag helmet decal.

Or at least I assume that was the case. One thing I know for sure is that LaDainian Tomlinson was wearing one. No surprise there, since he’d also worn the flag decal for San Diego’s two previous games. The big news is that Chris Chambers, who’d been flag-free for the past new weeks, was properly flag-accessorized yesterday, marking the first time this year that Tomlinson and Chambers were both wearing the decal. As for the other fifty-some players on the Chargers’ roster, I’m gonna take it on faith that they were all flag-clad. If anyone knows otherwise, speak up.

In other NFL notes from yesterday:

• Chad Johnson dusted off his orange chinstrap.

• The Jets retired Curtis Martin’s number.

• Hard to know what looked worse in the Jets/Steelers game: the Jets or the slacks-clad officials.

• The officials in the Bears/Seahawks game were wearing the cold-weather slacks too, as you can barely see here.

• Radically distinct sock stylings here. Here, too.

• That’s a right purty game right there.

There, too.

• Several readers reported that Roy Williams of the Cowboys had a yellow dot on the back of his helmet, similar to the green dot that the QBs wear. No photo yet. If we can get visual confirmation, I’ll ask the team for an explanation.

• I’ve said it before and I’ll keep on saying it: This is the league’s most underrated design, and a classic in the making.

Uni Watch Calendar: Lots of opportunities for gatherings and such over the next few weeks. Here’s the breakdown:

• November 27th: I’m going to be in Austin, Texas. Is there any Uni Watch readership to speak of in that town? If so, any such readers should get in touch. If the response is large enough, I’ll set up a gathering for that evening.

• December 6th: Marc Spears of the Boston Globe and I will be guests of a media seminar class at Boston University. I’ll convene a Uni Watch party at 8:30 that evening at Boston Beer Works, which is right across from Fenway Park. Meanwhile, if anyone wants to attend the seminar class, which begins at 6:30, the professor tells me he can probably accommodate a few extra people. If you’re interested, get in touch and I’ll fill you in.

• December 10th: The completely wonderful City Reliquary, of which I am a proud card-carrying member, will be holding its annual benefit gala at the Automotive High School Auditorium, and I’m one of the two featured speakers this year. I’ll be doing a Power Point presentation on some topic or other (might be uni-related or might not — haven’t decided yet), but the real attraction is the other speaker: Lawrence Weschler, author of such crucial must-reads as Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet of Wonder and Boggs. In other words, I’m like some puny little indie band opening for the Rolling Stones. The evening will feature lots of additional stuff, including a short documentary film, a live samba band, and dinner at Bamonte’s (one of Brooklyn’s oldest and best red-sauce Italian restaurants). Full details here.

Uni Watch News Ticker: I’m a week late with this, but it’s still pretty funny (with thanks to Jeremy Brahm and Timothy Sheehan). … Speaking of the intersection of fan and uniform, David Soline sent along this. … Reprinted from Friday’s comments: Really interesting article here about Cal’s recent throwbacks. … Chris Mycoskie notes that Louisiana-Lafayette’s women’s hoops team has some, uh, innovative uniforms. … Photo archivist David Eskinazi has come up with something interesting: a 1911 photo of the Wichita Falls Irish Lads. “I found it very unusual that they chose to have EVERYTHING spelled out on their jerseys — team nickname, city, and state,” he writes. “Quite odd, especially for a pro team.” … Good catch by Andrew White, who notes that UNC’s walk-on players were all photographed wearing the same jersey, as seen here, here, and here. … Here‘s our first look at the Indians’ new throwback alternate uni. Additional views here. … The CBA’s Albany Patroons had to play in practice uniforms on Friday night because their new unis weren’t ready yet. … Really great two-minute audio slideshow here about the Indiana equipment staff prepping the helmets for last Saturday’s throwback game. … And speaking of that game, there’s a good photo gallery here. … Brazil has a new soccer kit. Note that the five stars, representing the team’s five World Cup championships, are shown not only on the chest but also on the socks. Details here and here. … Matthew Strauss noticed something odd: According to SI.com, this photo was taken during a Cowboys/Redskins game in Dallas. But the ’Skins are wearing white, so was Dallas wearing blue at home? The turf looks artificial, which would seem to support the notion that the game was played at Texas Stadium, not at RFK. Can anyone shed more light on this? … Lots of solid-red action on the gridiron on Saturday, as Minnesota and FSU went monochromatic. … Casey Hart reports that Harvard’s nordic skiing team uniforms feature a map of the Harvard area. … Speaking of Harvard, someone on the Chris Creamer board spotted Crimson head football coach Tim Murphy wearing an NFLL pullover on Saturday. … Interesting critique of presidential campaign logos here. … Reprinted from yesterday’s comments: I went to a European advertising conference and a hockey game broke out. … USF is switching to Under Armour. … I’ve listed lots of uniform typos in my recent ESPN columns. But Matt Lindner found something you don’t often see: a typo on a replica jersey. … Latest analysis of the NHL jersey debacle here (with thanks to Doug Mooney, who also reports that South Georgia Tech’s men’s and women’s hoops teams wore a “W” patch on Saturday in remembrance of instructor Willy Mathis). … New sleeveless unis for the American men’s volleyball team (as reported by Jeremy Brahm). … Two soccer notes from Jeremy as well: new uniforms for Germany, and quite the flamboyant ball during the U.S. vs. South Africa friendly match.

    I have to disagree. I LOVE the Jets green pants and green jersey together. FANTASTIC.

  • Karim | November 19, 2007 at 9:48 am |

    Thank you Paul for giving the Jaguars’ uni some love! I was always curious what you thought of them and now I know.

  • Collin | November 19, 2007 at 9:52 am |

    I was watching the Friars play Miami last night on ESPN2 and noticed that one of the Miami players had his flag logo on upside-down. Anyone else pick up on this or have a screen grab?

  • Stuby | November 19, 2007 at 9:52 am |

    I noticed something during the Packers-Panthers game yesterday. The Panthers jerseys are so stretched out in most cases that the shoulder stripe no longer goes over the shoulder, but now looks like it sits on the outside of the upper arm, like a horseshoe. Here’s a pic of Vinny wearing it the way it’s supposed to be worn.

  • Joe Drennan | November 19, 2007 at 9:52 am |

    I agree with Paul that the jags have a nice looking uni. What amazes me is that despite the teal-like color and black accent, it still get’s love. This proves Paul can accept this that are outside his comfort zone.

  • Johnny O | November 19, 2007 at 9:53 am |

    I don’t know if it was mentioned yesterday. I was gone all weekend in MLPS watching Bucky retain the Axe from the Gophers…but I noticed Bill’s coach Dick Jauron wearing that Reebok coat with the rubber nipple on it that keeps warm air in the coat (or something like that). I remembered we talked about this coat last year when Lovie Smith wore it, so I thought it would be mentioning.

    Coach Jauron

  • Andrew | November 19, 2007 at 9:54 am |

    That Cowboys-Redskins pic was definitely in Dallas. You can clearly see the red white and blue stripes on the 20-yard line. I don’t have an explanation for the jerseys though.

  • Gazzoo | November 19, 2007 at 9:56 am |

    Fred Taylor better hope the league doesn’t see that photo, or he’s in for a fine…

    I can’t see anything conclusive in that pic to tell me it’s in Dallas. I see alot of yellow in the background. Am I missing something?

    Portugal’s soccer team also has a new kit that was unveiled in their win this weekend:
    http://community.liv...

    At a bar yesterday and the Dolphins/Eagle game was on. Noticed a player for Miami had the left sleeve of their long sleeve pass layer completly torn on the back of the tricep area… anyone else see this or have photographic evidence?

    Also, maybe I’m just lost, but are these new on Romo’s helmet clipping his chin strap to the top of his helmet?

    Looks like he didn’t have them last week against the Giants.

    Anyone notice Lovie Smith had what looked to be a small Tampa Bay Bucs pirate ship sticker on his headset yesterday? I don’t have a pic…

  • CV | November 19, 2007 at 10:08 am |

    Well, I will be the one who disagrees. I hate the Jags Teal jerseys. Hate em. Better than the New Orleans Hornets teal I guess if I had to say something positive.

    I will agree though the Jets all green sucks hard. I don’t mind the officials pants, in part because I guess I don’t really care what they wear.

  • Kevin from Ohio in Virginia | November 19, 2007 at 10:10 am |

    I hope the “YOU ALL JUST MINDLESSLY AGREE WITH PAUL” idiots are paying attention.

    **CAUTION: Reader about to disagree with Paul**

    Paul,

    I just don’t understand how you can lump the Jags’ design in with NFL classics. The 1990’s were a pretty good decade, but the worst part that didn’t involve a cigar was the influx of teams wearing teal and black as their primary colors. When you add in the fact that the Jags like to go monochrome black on occasion, I further disagree with your assessment of their uniforms. The final straw, of course, is the notion of assigning the color of teal to a team called the “Jaguars.” This would be like the Toronto Blue Jays having an orange jersey (please don’t bring up the red Canada Day jerseys) and the St. Louis Cardinals adopting a kelly green and gold motif.

    One set of Jacksonville Jaguars uniforms makes my personal hall of fame, though.

  • Karim | November 19, 2007 at 10:12 am |

    According to wikipedia, it was cowboys AT redskins…
    http://en.wikipedia....

  • Karim | November 19, 2007 at 10:13 am |

    Err sorry, Redskins AT cowboys because the game was played september 9th, the cowboys second game of the season.

  • Karim | November 19, 2007 at 10:15 am |

    and the score was 31-33, clearly the second game of the season played, if you go to that Wikipedia link above.

  • MikeyB | November 19, 2007 at 10:16 am |

    The Milard North football team (the ones with the tape around their helmets) wore a number seven on the back of their helmets in the state championship game for their quarterback who tore out his ACL in the semi-finals. If I can find a picture, I’ll post it.

  • jason | November 19, 2007 at 10:17 am |

    Re: the Wichita Falls Irish Lads…

    Since I’m working in W.Falls, I’ll go down to the museum of N.Texas History today and get some more shots of the Irish Lads, and a few other old baseball teams from a new history exhibit.

  • Shane | November 19, 2007 at 10:22 am |

    Man, wish I could hit up that seminar at BU. Sadly I’m on the other side of the state.

    I’m on the wall about the new Germany shirts. They’re pretty..decent.

  • josh's twin | November 19, 2007 at 10:23 am |

    Those Indian alts are sweet, but would be even better if they’d lose wahoo, and adopt varsity numbers.

    As for the Cowboys/’Skins game, I believe it may have had something to do with the gulf war. There was all sorts of comemorative uni switching going on at the time. I remember going to a Blackhawks/North Stars game early in the ’91-92 season where they did the same thing, with some gulf war mumbo jumbo given as the reason.

  • SATCH | November 19, 2007 at 10:23 am |

    It’s one of those real uni quandaries why a team that could sport such an awesome look as this would ever want to go out on a football field looking like this.

  • u2horn | November 19, 2007 at 10:24 am |

    Definitely seems to be Texas Stadium–I’m guessing it was throwbacks being worn, but I’m not sure if they were wore throwbacks in 1991.

    However, the pics don’t necessarily correspond with the desciptions. For example, THIS photo was taken at RFK, but the game being described happened at Texas Stadium.

  • ML | November 19, 2007 at 10:26 am |

    Not really uni-related, but Boggs is one of my favorite books. Wish i could be there to see Weschler speak!

  • Stuby | November 19, 2007 at 10:27 am |

    You know, I like when NFL teams wear the throwbacks – especially the Niners, but it would be nice to see teams outfitted in throwback road uniforms more often. The Niners won two Super Bowls wearing the white jerseys. Fans have strong memories of those also.

  • Tim | November 19, 2007 at 10:27 am |

    As for the Chiefs pic Paul posted, I’ve never noticed the color of their pants before. Is that the normal color? It has a sort of metallic orange look to it — quite different from the helmet, numbers and sock stripes.

  • u2horn | November 19, 2007 at 10:28 am |

    Plus, THIS pic of Michael Irvin appears to be in Soldier Field.

    None of this explains why the Redskins were wearing white at Texas Stadium though, unless that’s not Texas Stadium. Does anybody else have the RW&B 20-yard line stripe? Indy?

  • Charlie | November 19, 2007 at 10:30 am |

    hey guys, I saw this jersey at the sports bar yesterday while I was watching that embarrassing Jets/Steelers game. I had to sneak around until I got a good angle…sorry the quality isn’t perfect

    This is getting stranger by the minute, for not only does it look like the Cowboys wore blue at home against the Skins in ’91, but now we see the Redskins wore Burgundy at home against the Cowboys…

    dome lights seem to do that to our pants.

  • Gazzoo | November 19, 2007 at 10:35 am |

    Staubach at the helm. Could be before the ‘Skins started wearing white at home.

  • Nicefellow31 | November 19, 2007 at 10:36 am |

    As a long time Redskin fan, I can tell you that the picture is not from the game described. I have it on video tape and Dallas is wearing white. As a matter of fact, the only time the Redskins have worn their white jerseys in Dallas in the last 40 years was on a Monday night in 2005. I guess SI didn’t say the picture was accurate, just the player Chip Lohmiller.

  • Jerico | November 19, 2007 at 10:36 am |

    It could be a photo taken during Super Bowl XXVI, which the Redskins won at the HHH Metrodome.

    There is no way that is Texas Stadium. The 20 yard line stripe used to have blue and red on each side, not alternating. I’d bet that is the Hoosier Dome.

    I met to email about Tim Murphy’s NFL pullover.

  • Jody Moore | November 19, 2007 at 10:38 am |

    I was looking at my high school alma mater’s athletics website the other day and found that the varsity football team had been selected as having the #2 football helmet design in the area by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. It’s not a long article but I thought you might enjoy it. My alma mater, All Saints’ Episcopal, is the #2 school but the online article accidentally left the name off. I’ve also included links to images of the top 3 schools’ helmets. Enjoy!




  • Frank Mercogliano | November 19, 2007 at 10:39 am |

    Yeah, my guess is they were wearing this jersey, and I would almost bet it was a Thanksgiving Day game because Dallas would wear those on Thanksgiving for a while. Of course, this photo is of the Cowboys/Redskins 2002 Thanksgiving Day game, and this one is of the 1996 Turkey Day Classic, so now I’m stumped.

    The original Cowboys-Redskins game picture in todays column is from a Thanksgiving Day game on November 28,2002. On Thanksgiving Cowboys have been wearing their blue third jerseys. As a result, the visitors wear white. The one exception was the first year that the Cowboys did this was the year Dallas hosted Denver. For that game, both teams wore their ‘darks.’ In 2004, Chicago was in and they wore their orange jerseys, while Dallas wore their blue throwbacks.

    Shawn

  • Nicefellow31 | November 19, 2007 at 10:42 am |

    You know I looked at some more of the pictures in that photo series and a bunch of the are inaccurate. Picture #8 is talking about the Monday night game that was the season opener of the 1983 season. However the photo shown is from the NFC Championship game that was held in January. Notice that Riggins has the “tucked feather” helmet which was only worn in 1982. Also the game is in broad daylight! There is another picture (#10) that shows Michael Irvin. However if you look in the background, it is fairly obvious that game is actually in Soldier Field not RFK, FedEx Field, or Texas Stadium.

  • CJ | November 19, 2007 at 10:44 am |

  • Matt Powers | November 19, 2007 at 10:46 am |

    The high hook up chin strap that Romo is wearing has become popular this year. It is a variation of when players, or equipment managers would unscrew the snap from the helmet and drill a hole through the chin strap in order to layer them. This would result in a more sturdy connection. Check out the snaps of the Patriots tackle:
    http://cache.viewima...
    I suffered the effect of my top snap coming undone numerouds times in high school becasuse of wear and I can tell you it is painful to have the u bar snap down into your nose. Actually, the instance when it happened the worst was when I hit now Titans linebacker Keith Bullock on a kickoff return. The damn u-bar, or bull ring, as we all called it, put a gash in my nose.

    Romo’s chin strap can be found on the Indiana helmets in the great video posted the other day!

  • Shane | November 19, 2007 at 10:47 am |

    Nice to see adidas actually switching it up from team-to-team and letting the individual sides dictate the style instead of mandating just a handful of kits as they have over the past half-dozen years or so. Germany’s new shirts look wonderful.

    On the Redskins photo: for what it’s worth, the first thing I thought was that it was from the Super Bowl. Dallas didn’t have the shoulder-star throwbacks in 1991. (1994, I believe, for the 75th anni season)

  • Frank Mercogliano | November 19, 2007 at 10:48 am |

    OK, it is apparently the 2005 game, and the Cowboys were wearing those goofy blue alternates, as you can see here. Apparently, Troy Aikman was put in the Ring of Honor on the date of this game, and Cowboys wore their regular blue uniforms for the meeting that year in Washington.

    Frank

  • Nicefellow31 | November 19, 2007 at 10:49 am |

    Look closely at those photos. There is another one #1 that is obviously taken from the Ice Bowl. Picture #5 is wrong because that game was played late afternoon and the lights would have been on. Acutally I believe that one is from Super Bowl VII. #6 is from the 1st Washington Dallas game, not the season ending 35-34 game at Texas Stadium. Very inaccurate.

  • Comish4lif | November 19, 2007 at 10:50 am |

    Regarding the Indians throwbacks – nice cap! But, when is it from? In the early 1900, the style looks consistent, but the “C” on the cap is white. In the 1930-1950, they feature a cap with a red “C” but it is a different style. More like the Reds’ “C” – are the Indians creating a throwback with an old-timey feel, rather than something that is historically accurate?

    That’s supposed “Redskins-Cowboys” picture is from Super Bowl XXVI in the Metrodome. Early on in the game they bobbled the snap of an easy field goal. That’s why there is no reference of a made field goal of that length in that Super Bowl against the Bills.

  • KT | November 19, 2007 at 10:54 am |

    Occam’s Razor: Isn’t it possible that it’s just a photo of Chip Lohmiller kicking, and not necessarily from the game in question?

    He kicked for the Redskins from 1991-1994.

  • Shane | November 19, 2007 at 10:54 am |

    …And SI does that all the time. All of the photo-galleries are basically, come up with a topic, find the best picture available related to said topic regardless of whether or not its an accurate representation of what’s being discussed.

    And to follow up, the Cowboys introduced the white Double Star in 1994. They didn’t start wearing the blue one until 2001.

    I’d just say that pic is from any random ass Redskins game in a dome with a red-white-and-blue 20-yard line strip.

    This article seems to suggest (Blue Monday) that the Cowboys did wear blue at home for this game. I’m still seeking a confirming picture or article, but I do remember this was their “return” to MNF and that Johnson and Jones wanted to make a splash and decided to go blue at home for prime time.

    That Dallas-Washington picture from 12/12/79 is wrong too. That games was played in Dallas, and the picture shows natural grass (The Redskins must have worn burgundy at home one game to explain that picture). Anyway, the Cowboys came back to win that ’79 game with 2 late touchdowns. I can remember it vividly. That Irvin picture with the Bears helmet in the background is obviously at Soldier Field. This was a very poor job collecting pictures by SI.

    [quote comment=”173154″]Regarding the Indians throwbacks – nice cap! But, when is it from? In the early 1900, the style looks consistent, but the “C” on the cap is white. In the 1930-1950, they feature a cap with a red “C” but it is a different style. More like the Reds’ “C” – are the Indians creating a throwback with an old-timey feel, rather than something that is historically accurate?[/quote]

    This from the article on Indians.com

    A crème-colored tone, block “Indians” lettering on the front chest, Chief Wahoo logo on the left sleeve and dark navy blue cap with a vintage block “C” highlight the new uniform.

    The block lettering harkens back to the 1960s, the coloring is similar to that of the late 1940s and the block “C” is reminiscent of the early 1900s.

    I love this alternate uni. Love it. And notice that the cap is dark navy instead of the current shade.

  • College Kid | November 19, 2007 at 11:26 am |

    [quote comment=”173147″]The high hook up chin strap that Romo is wearing has become popular this year. It is a variation of when players, or equipment managers would unscrew the snap from the helmet and drill a hole through the chin strap in order to layer them. This would result in a more sturdy connection. Check out the snaps of the Patriots tackle:
    http://cache.viewima...
    I suffered the effect of my top snap coming undone numerouds times in high school becasuse of wear and I can tell you it is painful to have the u bar snap down into your nose. Actually, the instance when it happened the worst was when I hit now Titans linebacker Keith Bullock on a kickoff return. The damn u-bar, or bull ring, as we all called it, put a gash in my nose.

    Romo’s chin strap can be found on the Indiana helmets in the great video posted the other day![/quote]

    The new hookup that Romo used this weekend is supported by “strap locks”–the small white blocks you see here. The snapholder button that comes standard on the helmet is removed and an additional hole is drilled into the shell. The white straplock has nubs on the ends that slide into the holes. The chinstrap is inserted underneath the lock and the lock is tightened down with a screw to secure the chinstrap. With standard chinstrap buttons, the snaps can come undone much more easily than with the straplocks. In our Eq Room (college) we started using the straplocks this year and it seems to help with preventing chinstraps from coming loose. Here‘s a closer picture of a straplock on a helmet–far right side.

    Some NFL teams have been using something similar, by screwing the chinstrap directly to the shell.

  • John | November 19, 2007 at 11:26 am |

  • Andrew | November 19, 2007 at 11:26 am |

    The Indians uniforms are pretty outstanding. If they stick with the cap (instead of the stupid script I) it might be something to wear around instead of the Chief. I’d like to support my team without having to support the Chief.

    The Redskin uniform seems to be a picture from Super Bowl XXVI. The yard line in the background is painted in red, white and blue and the glare from the lights on the helmet suggests that the game was played in a dome. Super Bowl XXVI was played at the Metrodome.

  • Kevin G. | November 19, 2007 at 11:29 am |

    To answer the Chip Lohmiller question please see comment #57 because I KNOW it is right. The red, white & blue line on the 20-yard line is for the Buffalo Bills colors. That is who the Redskins were playing in that game (Super Bowl XXVI), not the Cowboys at Texas Stadium. It was botched field goal attempt, so it probably doesn’t even show up as a missed field goal since Chip never kicked the ball.

    Everything new is old again

    You’ve probably noticed that the Rangers’ sweaters – particularly the road whites – are looking more and more traditional every day. Responding to the cry from the vast majority of players and equipment managers who have lambasted the sleeker Reebok Edge jerseys introduced for this season, the NHL has allowed teams to make major alterations.

    The Rangers have taken full advantage and now are wearing jerseys made largely of the old, roomier, more breathable material – with only patches of the “new” fabric on the back and under the arms. Having already hemmed the silly aprons and tails, the Rangers are almost completely back to the look that served them well for eight decades.

    That Redskin-Cowboy SI article is terrible, almost everything is wrong. I think most of it has been documented already, but there are pictures from Super Bowls VII and XXVI in it. There is a picture from the Ice Bowl in it. They say Riggins scored 24 touchdowns in the 1982 season, which was strike-shortened to 9 games (That would have been an extraordinary accomplishment). He set the record for touchdowns in 1983. Overall, this was very poorly done by SI.

    The Montreal Canadiens are raising Larry Robinson’s #19 to the rafters of the Bell Centre tonight. As in the past, I imagine all of the current members of the Habs will be wearing #19 Robinson sweaters during the pre-game warmups and ceremonies.

    I always wondered when and how the players changed out of the retiree’s sweaters. I will be at the game tonight and I will pass on some details.

    A question on Ohio State’s football unis.

    Why would they change the pants and trim from metallic silver to dull, perhaps grey, but leave the helmets metallic? Makes no sense to me. One way or the other would both seem fine to me as long as they match, but having the helmets different from the pants? Ugly and stupid IMO. Cowboy fans may disagree I guess.

    Seems as if the Edge is getting a bit dull….

    Everything new is old again

    You’ve probably noticed that the Rangers’ sweaters – particularly the road whites – are looking more and more traditional every day. Responding to the cry from the vast majority of players and equipment managers who have lambasted the sleeker Reebok Edge jerseys introduced for this season, the NHL has allowed teams to make major alterations.

    The Rangers have taken full advantage and now are wearing jerseys made largely of the old, roomier, more breathable material – with only patches of the “new” fabric on the back and under the arms. Having already hemmed the silly aprons and tails, the Rangers are almost completely back to the look that served them well for eight decades.[/quote]

    What??? The same look for 8 decades??? The Rangers change their look and the shade of blue more often than any other team in the NHL.
    Take a look at the 2003- 2004 season. 5 differents; 3 different shades of blue; 2 crests that look nothing like each other; a Lady Liberty logo; and that stupid wordmark. Who ever wrote that article hasn’t been watching the Rangers since the 60s.

  • David | November 19, 2007 at 1:01 pm |

    As Karim posted above, the picture (which was on September 9, 1991, as it says at the top), was in Dallas, because Wikipedia says the game vs Washington in 1991 that was 33-31 was IN Dallas. ON the Redskins/Cowboys rivalry Wikipedia page, it says: [date] September 9 [winner] Washington Redskins [score] 33-31 [loser] Dallas Cowboys [location] Texas Stadium. And, Dallas could not have worn blue, because they wore that on their November 24th meeting, so this picture of Alvin Harper is either of November 24th or another year

    Washington Post article from Sept 10 does not mention uniform color – given the history between the clubs, and how out-of-the-norm that would be, it would have been noted. Also, story line goes:
    And they still won, defeating the Cowboys, 33-31, before 63,025 in a playoff-like atmosphere at Texas Stadium. Chip Lohmiller kicked four long field goals, Earnest Byner rushed for 101 yards and the Redskins controlled the ball for 22 of 30 minutes in the second half.

As anal retentive as folks around here are about uniform minutiae the topic might have come up a few years ago, but I just noticed that the uniforms are identical save for their stripping pattern. The current unis go a consistent orange-blue-white-blue-orange on the helmet, shoulder, and pants. The older unis are all over the place.

    When Irbe did have new pads, he went to extremes to break them in – including having a bus drive over them. With all white pads, it would be funny to see tread marks on them whenever he broke out a new pair

    Nothing teal can be considered “classic”.

    Just my humble opinion.[/quote]

    I’ll have to disagree. If “classic” teams had access to modern uniform production methods when they were created, I’d bet that a few of them would choose teal as a primary color.[/quote]

    not all teal is good…but im kinda diggin the jags unis, after a dozen years, and i’ve always liked the panthers’ white uni scheme

    as far as the words ‘classic’ and ‘teal’. if one is using classic in the sense of ‘old’ (not that old is bad), then no, teal isn’t classic

    if one is using classic in the sense of ‘withstanding the test of time’ then, yeah…i’d say some teal uni’s will become (or are half way there towards becoming) classic

    /almost all purple is bad…although the viking uni’s are classic[/quote]

    Please the Lakers have GREAT uniforms. and they’re purple.

    As for teal, it’s better than boring white and “midnight” blue like the Yankees and Penn State (the two WORST uniforms in the history of team sports)

    Ok. First of all, I remember watching that game (I lived in DC and it was a friends birthday). The picture is of Chip Lohmiller biffing the extra point when Jeff Rutledge mishandled the snap. The game is in Dallas – Texas Stadium’s 20 yard lines were red/white/blue until they replaced the astroturf with fieldturf.

    To answer the question, I seemingly remember the ‘Boys wearing a variation of the blue with the star on the sleeves – there was a reason for blue at home, but I forget what. They wore the regular blues at RFK on November 24th.

    The only images I can find even in theory are buried in the pay archives of the Washington Post and Dallas Morning News.

    re: the lohmiller photo.

    if we subscribe to the theory that the cowboys have NEVER worn navy at home, then, i think we have to agree that the redskins photo in question has to be a stock photo of chip lohmiller. but remember, there are exceptions to every rule and unless there is photographic evidence of that exact game, then there is the possibility (be it very slight) that the boys tried their normal navy at home.

    the theory that they were wearing the star uniforms or even an alternate has been tossed around as well. we must keep in mind the year of the photo, 1991. the star unis didnt make their first appearance until 95. in addition, i dont think the advent of the “alternate jersey” or “retro jersey” had come into play yet, for any sport.

    That looks really really good. Especially on the dark. I love it.[/quote]

    I also just noticed the odd side helmet numbers, and i weep everytime i see one of those awful Two-toned reebok helmets.[/quote]

    Does anyone else want to cry over the amount of RBK logo creep on those uniforms?

    My high school hockey team did that. They were alot smaller numbers, and they had “Warwick Hockey” arched over it, but we had them….unfortunately, our home uniform was purple jersey on top of purple shells for the pants, on top of purple socks…ugh.

    Roy williams did not have a yellow dot on his helmet. I am from dallas and I watched the entire game with 8 other guys. one of them asked why he had a dot on his helmet, so we rewinded the tivo to take a closer look. it was a dash of yellow paint from the redskin’s facemask. jason witten had the same thing going on. Im 99% sure on this as i was watching the game on a 163″ HD projection screen

    [quote comment=”173401″]Guys, that supposed “Skins-Boys” picture with Chip Lohmiller is from Super Bowl XXVI. We know this for a fact! I even gave play-by-play of the Redskins drive against the Bills in that game that led up to the field goal attempt (Comment #107). Stop analyzing it![/quote]
    Also, look at the holder and Lohmiller. The holder does not have the ball in place yet, a little crooked still, and Lohmiller looks as if he’s about to make his leg muscles explode trying to stop it. That’s a blown hold in a Super Bowl right there.

    Don’t they usually wear replicas of their playing era sweater at these types of events? Might not have come into play much with the Habs where the sweater hasn’t changed, but for other teams it seems to be the case.

    [quote comment=”173642″]Ok.

    First of all, I remember watching that game (I lived in DC and it was a friends birthday). The picture is of Chip Lohmiller biffing the extra point when Jeff Rutledge mishandled the snap. The game is in Dallas – Texas Stadium’s 20 yard lines were red/white/blue until they replaced the astroturf with fieldturf.

    To answer the question, I seemingly remember the ‘Boys wearing a variation of the blue with the star on the sleeves – there was a reason for blue at home, but I forget what. They wore the regular blues at RFK on November 24th.

    The only images I can find even in theory are buried in the pay archives of the Washington Post and Dallas Morning News.

    I’m sure that helps a ton – all I can remember is that I remember :)[/quote]
    Then you should remember that the Cowboys wore white jerseys. Emmitt Smith was killing Washington early, then got a stomach virus or something and had to sit out the rest of the game. I still have the game on tape.

    The Redskins-Cowboys picture at issue is of Chip Lohmiller (K) and Jeff Rutledge (holder)on the artificial surfance of the metrodome on January 26, 1992, during Super Bowl XXVI. The photo is mislabled. The Redskins did defeat the Cowboys in Dallas in the 3rd game of the ’91 season on a Lohmiller 51 yard FG, however, the ‘Skins were wearing red jerseys and white pants in that game.

  • No1Bearsfan | November 26, 2007 at 10:13 am |

    I’m going out on a limb here, but I’m going to bet that’s from the Super Bowl against the Bills.

    First, the picture looks like it was taken in a dome (that game was played in the HHH Metrodome)…the Redskins wore white while the Bills wore blue…and what I noticed; the 20-yard-line is red, white and blue…haven’t the Cowboys always had the 20 in navy and white? And aren’t the numbers at Texas Stadium outlined in blue as well and in a different font?

    I would almost swear that this picture is from Redskins 37, Bills 24.

    Plus, I saw a picture on the internet…you can barely see, behind the people, the outline of the 20-yard-line with the blue on the inside, white, red on the outside color pattern as in the Lohmiller photo. A question, however, to prove or disprove this…you’ll notice that Lohmiller has the NFL shield on the back of his helmet…had the NFL included those on helmets circa 1991?

    I am a field-geek…I notice all of the small stuff no one ever cares about. For example, it’s always bugged me that “Major League” was filmed at County Stadium in Milwaukee…AND THEY EXPECT US TO JUST ACCEPT THAT?!!
