Photo Contest: We’re Looking For The Best-Worst Redskins Jerseys

hi-res-143441365_crop_north

When you root for a team like the Redskins, you’re bound to have skeletons in the closet, and by skeletons I mean a LaVar Arrington jersey. Or a Fred Smoot. Or a Jason Campbell. Or an RGIII. Or an Orakpo. And that’s just in the Mottram family wardrobe alone.

It comes with the territory of rooting for a team that burns through high-priced free agents and high draft picks like Dan Snyder through a bottle of Crown before giving Mike Shanahan a five-year deal.

So we’re putting on this little contest to show us your Redskins jerseys. Not the good ones, like Art Monk, Darrell Green, Santana Moss, Chris Cooley or Doug Williams (all Mottram family treasures), but the bad ones. Well, the good-bad ones.

This is a search for the Best-Worst Redskins Jersey. You know, the Deion Sanders jersey. The Heath Shuler. The Donovan McNabb. The Adam Archuleta. The, gulp, Albert Haynesworth. We know they’re out there.

Show us your jersey, and the owner of the most “admired” one wins an Offseason Champs shirt, on us. It only seems fitting.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    Good idea. On a separate note, that 2011 article about Snyder deserves a full revisit. To remind us of the man in charge.

    “While watching NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” game between the Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts, the four men drank glasses of Sassicaia, a bold Tuscan red that is a Snyder favorite, those who were present said. They added that Snyder eventually graduated to Crown Royal.

    Finally, Snyder turned to the others. ‘Let’s go get Mike Shanahan,’ he said”

    This is how you build franchises in Madden ’05, not the fucking NFL. It’s truly appalling.

    Have a Randle El and a Rocky Mac in the closet. I feel like I make up for those with my Riggins and my Fletcher.

    If you really bought Shaun Alexander AND Larry Johnson Redskins jerseys, then you are a lunatic and have no respect for money. Why not go for the Willie Parker to complete the trifecta?

    Mike Bradley wins if he posts pics.

    In the mid-90’s my mom threw out my Earnest Byner jersey and gave me a Michael Westbrook jersey. That 82 might still be in my parents’ house.

    I definitely have a Rocky McIntosh in the closet. My wife wants to throw it out, but I insist it will become ironically fashionable again in another decade.

    I have a 70th anniversary Jeremiah Trotter jersey somewhere. It is my mission to uncover it. For you. For us. For all.

    Whoever posted all of the Skins qb’s since Ramsey should win because no one in their right mind invests in shitty Skins quarterbacks that heavily. HE HAS A JOHN BECK. WHO would ever buy into John Beck as a starting qb? Is that you Mike Shanahan?
