9/1: Redskins Uniform Number Update

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 1, 2014 – 10:22 am


Three Redskins players will be wearing new numbers when they go out for their first practice of the week Monday, while the newest member of the team was assigned his uniform number.

Safety Duke Ihenacho, who started 17 games for the Denver Broncos a season ago, has been assigned No. 35 with the Redskins.

Three others who were with the team the entire offseason have been assigned new numbers, meanwhile.

  • Rookie running back Silas Redd switches from No. 24 to No. 32.
  • Outside linebacker Gabe Miller switches from No. 45 to No 50.
  • Inside linebacker Will Compton switches from No. 46 to No. 51.

As always, stay tuned to the Redskins Blog for all the latest Redskins uniform number updates.

Redskins Advance In Greatest Uni Bracket

[Update: The Redskins are currently behind in both matchups with the 6pm deadline fast approaching. Click here to vote.]

Last week Redskins Nation came out in full force, as usual, and helped the Washington Redskins advanced to the second round in Dave Dameshek’s Greatest Uniform in NFL History bracket.

Representing the “early” years of the Burgundy and Gold, the 1965-1968 spearhead helmeted outfits soundly defeated the Detroit Lions very plain blue and silver getups by over 10,000 votes while the sleek Nike uniforms that Robert Griffin III helped make famous last year shooed away  the Atlanta Falcons upset attempt in the current NFC jersey region.

Speaking of the uniform that No. 10 wore last year, remember 2012’s season opener where the Redskins, wearing those always awesome gold pants that head coach Mike Shanahan revived, traveled to the Big Easy to take on the New Orleans Saints?

And to think no one outside of the DMV thought the underdogs could pull out a 40-32 victory.

Well the two teams are squaring off once again with the Redskins needing some ground to catch to advance to the Sweet 16.

Two Redskins Uniforms Greatest Ever?

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 2, 2013 – 11:34 am

In the modern NFL era players attempt to individualize their looks with menacing facemasks, specialized arm sleeves and visors, but when it comes down to it no matter if you’re the star quarterback (Robert Griffin III) or the punter, everyone wears the same uniform on game days.

Over on NFL.com Dave Dameshek has lined up 32 of the greatest throwback unis and all 32 modern day getups for the right at having the honor of “The Greatest Uniform in NFL History”.

Redskins Jerseys Technologically Superior

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 4, 2012 – 12:42 pm

Perusing the comment sections on the blog and fan forums over the last 24 hours, I was surprised to see that while many fans are happy that the uniforms look mostly the same, others were passionately negative about the Nike Redskins approach.

Of those people, most were justifiably jaded by the hype machine behind yesterday’s unveiling, following months of speculation on false concept jerseys.  Others were upset that there were no gold pants, some wanted a total makeover, and “Dale C” was certain that he had spotted pink in the new Redskins jerseys.

I assure you that it’s not pink, just poor lighting.

But what fans should celebrate is that the Redskins chose tradition and substantive change, upgrading the jersey design to the best available options in the league.  Yesterday, we learned the specifics of the new technology, including cutting edge ‘Flywire technology,” “zoned mesh ventilation,” and aircraft-grade aluminum belts.  Seriously.

In total, the Redskins were one of only 10 NFC teams to make all nine available jersey upgrades.  In the NFC East, it was only the Redskins and Giants that elected for the state-of-the-art technology, while the Eagles elected to make no changes at all.  The Cowboys made eight-of-nine possible upgrades, but elected against the Flywire technology, which locks the jersey collars to the players pads.

For Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo, that technology was the best feature of the new jerseys, as he shared his thoughts with the media in New York (via CSNWashington): Read more »

Full Redskins Nike ‘Elite 51’ Jersey Gallery

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 3, 2012 – 2:37 pm

via @NFL

Jersey-mania rages on, as NikeInc.com has released a full concept album that illustrates the changes made between the old Reebok jerseys, and the spiffy new Nike ones.

Just as forewarning, the changes are small, and will require a hi-def television to capture on gameday.  Perhaps the most important changes are coming to the technology of the jersey, which is made of lighter-weight material, and will come with improved ventilation for the players.

Here’s a technical explanation from the NikeInc website.  Evidently, the Redskins have selected the most innovative model on the market:

Keeping with their traditional design aesthetic, the uniform is completely engineered from the inside out. The new uniform focuses on creating a system where the baselayer, padding, jersey and pant work in concert with each other. A few of the new innovations include increasing sleeve articulation for better range of motion and integrating new four-way stretch fabrication to provide a streamlined shrink-wrap fit.

Sounds fancy.  So what features does this spaceman jersey actually have?

  • LIGHTER – The Nike jersey and pant, wet or dry are lighter than previous versions
  • FLYWIRE TECHNOLOGY – Eliminates layers, reduces weight, and provides lockdown fit
  • ZONED MESH VENTILATION – Provides cooling zones for optimal thermoregulation
  • ZONED STRENGTH  High tenacity, stretch material, for lightweight lockdown strength.
  • CUT FOR MOBILITY – Fourway stretch, hydrophobic materials enable range of motion wet or dry.
  • STRETCH TWILL NUMBERS – Four-way stretch even on numbering system
  • CUSTOMIZABLE BASELAYER PADDING – Nike Pro Combat Hyperstrong baselayer with integrated lightweight, Deflex padding offering customizable flexible protection.
  • DEFLEX PADDING – Lightweight, flexible impact protection integrated into top “hit zone” areas
  • ALUMINUM D-RING BELT – Aircraft-grade aluminum D-ring belt reduces weight.

Leonard Hankerson Gets Some More Redskins Gear

Posted by Matt Terl on May 23, 2011 – 8:56 am

Almost from the moment he was drafted in the third round, wide receiver Leonard Hankerson has been tweeting pictures of himself in Redskins gear. It was a cool story, interesting enough that I talked to the longtime friend who provided Hankerson with the burgundy and gold accoutrements, but apparently a few twitpics of himself wearing borrowed clothes wasn’t enough for Hankerson: late Sunday, the former Miami wide receiver tweeted a picture of himself in a pretty authentic-looking Redskins uniform.

Before I re-post Hankerson’s picture, let me make it very clear that no uniform numbers have yet been issued; as far as I know, Mike Furrey is still on the roster and is still the person who would officially be wearing 85. [UPDATE: Furrey is apparently no longer on the roster; according to his website, he’s the head coach at Kentucky Christian University. Still, no numbers have been issued to draft picks that I know of, so that point remains accurate.] THIS IS NOT OFFICIAL IN ANY WAY. That said, it still looks pretty freakin’ cool.

Based on the background signage, it looks like this shot comes from a photo shoot for a Topps football card — presumably something to do with the one from the company’s high-end “Inception” line that Hankerson tweeted on Wednesday. Here, look: Read more »
