    The Boys only wore their tradition blue jerseys once last season against the Redskins. Why, because I know the blues jerseys are our road unis?

    Don't get me started on that one, but we actually won last year the one game we did wear them. I know thats not saying much, because we were playing the skins, but I was just wondering why we wore our whites so much on the road!

    I think it all matters who we match up against. A lot of teams wear their dark uniforms at home, meaning we'd be wearing white on the road against those teams. It seems like Philadelphia used to make us wear blue there, but is no longer doing that.

    Yeah and I think every team has there dark uniform as there home jersey which is why we where white all season because we are kind of odd and have the white jersey as our home jersey

    The blue jerseys are not "jinxed." The reason the Cowboys have lost more in the traditional blue jerseys is because they only play in those ON AWAY GAMES and all teams lose more road games than home games.

    If in the past, the Cowboys had worn their white jerseys every time they wore their blue jerseys, and their blue jerseys every time they wore their white jerseys, the team would have still won and lost the same amount of games.

    As a kid growing up, I believed in the "blue jersey curse" but I've seen this team win too many games with blue jerseys they should have lost and lose too many games they should have won in their white jerseys to still believe it.

    Then again, it's just my opinion ... though it is the voice of Reality :)

    Jimmy blew up the blue jersey curse in the 90's. Bill, on the other hand, is a little quirky and may be afraid to temp fate:)
