Those white uniforms.

Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

Those white uniforms.

Can anyone tell me some more information about those White uniforms that they wore at the beginning of the season?

Specifically, why did they wear them in the first place, and then discontinue wearing them for the rest of the year? Also, why did they wear the burgundy jerseys for a few home games this year?

The decision to wear all white was from the players. They wanted to try something new for a change. After they beat the Jets, they wore all white for good luck. It worked for a while but they stopped wearing them when they lost to the Giants.

I think part of the reason we wore the dark uniforms at home was to comply to some of the teams that wear light uniforms on the road. Another reason may be to keep warm during cold games. (which played a part in why they lost 27-0 to Dallas)

I don't care what jerseys they wear as long as they're winning in them.
