Duh. (Hopefully they figure out a way to remake the Sullivan Stadium sideline padding wrap of the 70s for those games:)

\tied for last: every Black For Black's Sake version of a helmet except the Cardinals, just because the Cardinals one has red metallic speckle in it and the white Cards helmets are boooooooooring

Why do just throwback uniforms when you can do throwback uniforms on throwback teams?

My pick is the Muncie Flyers, hands down.  That simple red and white is elegant. And just look at those magnificent, retro wings.  Iggles fans can only dream they had feathered style like that.

The franchise might be a dumpster fire, but those Texans red helmets are freaking sweet.

The Browns tried the different unis crap for a few years...for some teams, the classic is better.

/Jimmy better not be thinking of putting anything more than numbers on that helmet...

Enough with the black. It looks especially bad on the Eagles who don't traditionally use black.

The Eagles wear the blackout uniforms every year...  just guessing they're gonna switch to that helmet when they do

They'll be even blacker!  This will strike fear in the hearts of the opposition.  The Giants will play even worse somehow.

Over the last few years, the worst alternate uniforms IMO:

1) Eagles retro baby blue and yellow
2) Jags baby poop

Some of those color crush games (solid red vs solid yellow) were fairly ugly too.
 
2022-07-26 9:39:31 AM  
Here's to hoping the Pats and Dolphins can work out a game where they both wear their respective throwbacks. Each one is a stark reminder of how friggin awful their current uniforms are.

Also, Jets, you're just embarrassing yourself at this point. Stop it. Get help. I know it is your default setting and all, but show some damn self-respect.

I liked that first Thursday night game with the solid color unis between the Buffalo Bills and NY Jets. At the time I thought it looked like a bowl of Christmas M&Ms playing football. It was funny the next day reading the complaints from the colorblind all over the internet.

This one is a pickle for me - I *love* the Oilers unis, but fark the Adam's family (heh) for not being willing to let the replacement Houston franchise use the name and logo. Tennessee shouldn't be allowed to use that particular throwback.

They really should bring back the Houston Oilers and retire the Texans name.

I remember watching that game and thinking about the backlash the NFL was about to receive.

Did I imagine it or have the Raiders ever worn the silver jerseys (although they look closer to a dark gray) with black numbers or was that just Nike and the rest charging out the arse for an alternative jersey?

With the return of the mullet, Broderick "Sandman" Thomas in creamsicle would be an internet legend if he played today.

I'll be happy.  I don't recommend they go with this one:

Although it is the FIRST helmet for an NFL or AFL team to have any design ever.  Los Angeles Rams were the first team to paint their helmet.  Only took another 75 years after that for the same team to have a Super Bowl championship.

Wow Washington went all the way back to a month ago.
 
2022-07-26 1:36:33 PM  
The league adopted the one-shell rule in 2013, limiting teams to (obviously) one-shell they could use on game days, as a safety issue. Either the NFL discovered that one-shell rule did not enhance player safety or it's chunking player safety to the wind,

No, it's because they looked across to the NCAA and saw they had those gold diggers putting out all of those alternative helmets and realized they were pissing money away.

This would actually be really cool. Football today may not even closely resemble the game of the early 20th century, but there is a ton of tradition there that has largely been lost to time. I'm not a bears fan but i would love to see a Staleys throwback. Or the Steelers donning Pirates garb.

It may have been an approved alternate before they landed on the silver on white color rush/alternate option, but it was never used in a game outside of Madden.

Lions need to go full on Lions mane for the helmets.... and then Cats (the musical) like face make up.

Thanks for that, I repressed A LOT of Raider games from 2005-2015 so wasn't sure.

At my age, McNabb only retired "a few years ago". Chicago won a Superbowl "a few years ago". And Tom Brady is still playing at a high level "a few years later". Wow.
