This may be an unpopular opinion, but those Cowboys jerseys suck.

When paired with the silver lid, I completely agree. But the uniforms as a standalone are still much better thanthe current white ones.

Agreed. Everybody looks back on those unis fondly but, the large gaudy stars take a lot away from it

They just seem so... '90s, for lack of a better word.

I just wonder which helmets would look the best with this Redskin jersey--the current one, the "Robin the Boy Wonder" from 1970-71, or the spear?

"Robin the Boy Wonder" is funny....Never heard that.  Always called it the Radio Shack helmet.

Those uniforms are so good. The shades of burgundy and gold are much better than the brighter shades they use today, and most of all, I love the spear helmet. Probably don't need the spear as a standalone logo on the sleeves but other than that I'd want the Redskins to look pretty close to that.

Aren't these uniforms technically fauxbacks? Never did redskins unis have a spear between a stripe and redskins font over the numbers.

Yes they are, but they're still the best uniforms the club has ever worn.

I feel so out of touch on these, because I just don't love them. I know the basic idea behind these should be right in my wheelhouse, and most of the CCSLCers I'm usually in lockstep with are big fans of it, but there's just a few details that bug me enough that I find impossible to get past.

 

The repeating of the spear on the sleeve is IMO needless clutter. As great as the spear looks on a helmet, it just doesn't work as well on the sleeve.  And the hip logo as a real eyesore. I can't think of an example where a hip logo actually improves a uniform. And if for some reason you feel a hip logo is necessary, why repeat the anniversary logo? Six spearheads on one uniform is absolutely overkill.  But the most nagging brainworm of this set is the fact that they designed a brand new stripe pattern for the sleeve (Obviously as a "house" for the spear) but kept the authentic throwback stripe on the socks.  Mismatched stripes between sleeves and socks are always a deal breaker for me.  (Come to think of it, Washington is still making this mistake.)

Quoiting myself just to share this pic... take notes, Nike:

One of the punters from this game broke his nose.  I can't remember from which team, I just remember it was really gross.  Look it up at your own risk.

What if we used those colors on the current template, changed the sock stripes to reflect the cuff/pants stripes, and kept the spear helmet (with yellow facemask)? Road uniform would be white over burgundy over white, as is customary.

It was the Redskins' 70th season, so that most likely explains the throwbacks. The 49ers wore throwbacks during the 1994 season (NFL 75th anniversary season), and they were allowed to wear them throughout the season, including the Super Bowl.

 

I don't remember there being white versions of these at the time, only the home red ones.

That's an interesting idea.   No new jersey designs should include sleeve stripes, since jerseys no longer have sleeves.  If you're going to tweak an old design anyway, might as well make it work on modern templates.

I've never been a fan of those Washington uniforms. The colors are too drab for my liking. The maroon looks almost purple or brown in most lighting, and the gold is just an ugly shade. I much prefer the current, brighter colors.

The white aways weren't as popular as the red homes, but the Niners definitely wore them:
