Anniversary Uniforms: 1994 Version

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 14, 2012 – 3:34 pm

When the Redskins take the field this season for two games wearing their 80th Anniversary Uniforms, it actually won’t be the first time a version of that uniform has been worn in recent memory.

The team also wore a version of the same uniforms Sept. 25, 1994, in a home game vs. the Atlanta Falcons at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, and we’ve dug up photos from that day.

The special occasion that year was the 75th anniversary of the National Football League.

In that game, the Redskins nearly battled back from a 27-13 fourth-quarter deficit, but lost 27-20 to the Falcons.

The defense was swarming for Washington that day. The Redskins had six sacks, led by Ken Harvey’s two. Leonard Marshall, Dexter Nottage, Bobby Wilson and Tony Woods each had one sack apiece.

Wide receiver Henry Ellard had a monster game that day against the Falcons, catching six passes for 162 yards and a touchdown — the longest of which a 73-yard reception from quarterback John Friesz.

Friesz that day was 17-of-29 for 230 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

But back to the uniforms.

The main difference between the 1994 uniform version and this year’s 80th Anniversary Uniforms is the helmet.

In 1994, the team’s throwback uniform featured a dark burgundy helmet — matching the jersey — with a yellow facemask and white chin strap.

The 80th Anniversary Uniforms to be worn this year feature a helmet with a leather-like finish — honoring those worn in the 1930s — with a dark facemask and a white chin strap.

Also, the ’94 uniforms were created by Starter. The 2012 uniforms are created by Nike.

Here’s a few pictures¬†from that 1994 game against the Falcons, as shot by the Associated Press:

    They also wore a version of the uniform against the Colts that year. It was Gus Frerrotte’s first NFL Start.

    They sure were ugly, but our defense looked menacing in them

    That’s one man’s opinion. I think they were awesome.I do like the lighter brown pant. I just wish they would do a white jersey with the burgandy shoulder stripes like the 60’s Skins
