A John Riggins Photo Gallery

Posted by Matt Terl on January 27, 2010 – 4:19 pm

These photos all come from a disc labeled “Riggins Slides” that turned up while sorting through a stack of CDs without cases today. At least one of the images is iconic — the pointed mustache headshot below — but most of the rest were unfamiliar to me and worth sharing.

(As usual, click on the images to enlarge.)

More Fans Take A Stab At New Uniforms

Posted by Matt Terl on January 27, 2010 – 2:40 pm

In my earlier post, the fan-created suggestions for new Redskins uniforms were largely done up in professional-looking layouts, often mirroring the actual NFL style guides. But plenty of other fans — fans without that level of graphic design experience — wanted to take offer their suggestions as well.

Since I wouldn’t want to discriminate on that — or any other — basis, here are a couple of the suggestions I’ve received via email. If you want to take a shot, go ahead and send it to me.

(Reminder: as far as I know, there are STILL no new uniforms in the works. Nothing has changed since earlier today.)

Here’s one from Marcel Virgil. I’m not a fan of adding black to the team’s colors, but it sure seems like a lot of people are. And that spear logo is really popular, too.

Wednesday, January 27: No News On New Uniforms

Posted by Matt Terl on January 27, 2010 – 10:22 am

Let me get the news-y bit of this out of the way up top: as of this moment, there’s no news on any uniform changes for the upcoming season. I’ve asked around a little bit at Redskins Park, and no one has heard anything about any changes to the helmet, the jersey, the colors … nothing.

The rumors are flying, though. There’s a 15-plus page thread on ExtremeSkins about the possibility, which appears to be Larry Michael’s fault. (Sort of. He’s fun to blame, anyhow.) We’ve been receiving a lot of questions about uniform changes on the Redskins Nation TV show — it’s a fun, easy offseason topic — and it’s easy to push Michael’s buttons about. It appears that someone heard him discussing the possibility, but assumed that meant it was a done deal.

It is not a done deal. Not by any means. Like I said above, it doesn’t appear to actually be, you know, HAPPENING. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t people out there who have come up with some suggestions of what a new uniform could look like.

(To avoid any of the confusion that plagued the last similar discussion, let me make this perfectly clear in bold text: All of the images in this post are fan creations that I’ve found online. These are NOT official, they do NOT come from the team, and — for the third time — at the moment nothing even remotely like this is happening.)

Anyhow, here are some of the things people have come up with. (Click on images to enlarge.)
