Redskins get Color Rush Jersey, won’t be worn this year

The Redskins uniform is...interesting

We wrote this about the rumored Nike Color Rush uniforms for the Washington Redskins in June when there was a “leak”.

The NFL Color Rush uniforms have had mixed reactions from fans, with some loving the changes, and some wanting to stick to the traditional colors and look. Last year, Redskins players wanted to wear the white on white combination that was last used in 2007. The idea was presented to owner Dan Snyder, and team President Bruce Allen last November. Snyder didn't have a problem with it, but Bruce Allen really, really loves the gold pants and denied the request.

Larry Michael, VP/Executive Producer of media, announced on "Redskins Nation" that the Redskins would not be wearing a Color Rush uniform this year. The reasoning was that the Redskins do no play a Thursday Night game this year. They play the Dallas Cowboys this year on Thanksgiving in a Thursday afternoon game.

Now the uniforms are here and the Redskins are getting a gold on gold combination that is going to be pretty painful on the eyes. The Redskins will not be wearing that on the field this year. The NFL will be using the Color Rush uniforms on Thursday Night Football, but the Redskins only game on Thursday this season is Thanksgiving Day vs the Dallas Cowboys which will not be shown on NFL Network. Bruce Allen got his gold pants and Larry Michael was right...
