Redskins wearing gold pants



Well, all the poorly guarded secrets are now out of the bag, in the person of NFL uniform model Casey Rabach. More than two hours before kickoff Sunday night, Rabach wandered onto the FedEx Field grass and chatted at center court with ESPN's Ed Werder. When he came back, I took these photos of his pants.

They are, you might note, gold. They also look slick as hell. But better not lose once you go that route.

Previously:

* Bruce Allen hints at the move to gold pants in May.

* The Redskins store starts selling t-shirts featuring gold pants in June.

* Allen says alumni will help decide the team's uniform scheme.

* Tim Brant reports that the Redskins will wear burgundy shirts at home all season.

Old School Burgundy and GOLD

Glad to see the Redskins going back to the burgundy and gold. Hopefully they will get rid of the black cleats they have worn since 2006 and go back to white.

They look INCREDIBLE. I hope we wear them with the white jerseys as well.

One note: the stripes on the pants don't match the stripes on the jersey. Or, for that matter, the helmet. I hope they eventually address that. But for now, hooray!

Nice to see that the wardrobe changes are capturing the female audience, as intended.

Sheesh, guys, who cares what they wear?

He's a crappy a coach as he was in Denver. Takes a 13 point lead and give up a TD.
His calls make last years calls seem ok. Get rid of them all! Snyder get a life! Shannanhan is a losrer!

What a loser Shanahan is! Just vlike last year Crappy calls. Give up 3ts and they get &, STUPID! He was a loser in Denver and will be in DC. Fantasy players are better coaches!

I love the gold pants, but the uniform in its entirety was a clash of eras. The stripes on the 1980's jerseys didn't match the 70's era pants and socks.

The only thing missing from last night is the Burgundy jerseys from the 70s....Go all the way with this and bring back the uniforms of the 70s and the white cleats and get rid of those black colored or multi-colored cleats....

As soon as I saw the pants I yelped for joy. Old School. George Allen era, glory days look. And it turned out to be a game like that too. I love it. Please keep that look--both uniform and game-play!
