I think what this team needs is a new uniform....
 
First of all...the Saints colors are the best in the NFL hands down. However....its been 40 years of futility with the golden helmet. I think its time for the black helmet with the golden fleur.....combine with a black and black combo or the gold alternate with black pants for home games....and a white top with either the gold or black pants. You guys ever notice how many different uniforms the Falcons have? I think the Saints need that same type of diversity but we must switch the helmet colors. Black halmet....gold Fleur! What do you say?

I like it. Let's see if one of the other users can possibly show us an image of that by switching the colors on an existing photo. I'm sure someone here has the ability to do so.

Hey, actually, I just did some research, and they did do that back in the late 60's, but it failed to change their abilty to win then, so I'm afraid it would do nothing for them now. However, I do still believe it would look cool.

Actually....they only did it for ONE preseason back in the 60's. Come on now....lets give it another chance!!

Someone actually had a picture of all the old helmets posted on here a while back. I can;t remember which thread though. Definitely go for the black one.

Here is a link to it and the story behind why they weren't allowed to wear it much.

Man....could you imagine this?? It would be phenomenal!! Is there anyway we can push for this helmet with the combinations I described up top?

As long as they get rid of that funky stripe down the middle, that would be pretty sweet.

I own the black mini helmet with a lineman mask....it rules.

I personally like our unis, i would just like to see us go back to the black pants on the road and mixing in the all black unis every once and a while. Maybe bust out the black helmets with gold jerseys for one or two games a year.

And the Falcons new uniforms look like arena gear to me, but i am a vintage guy and I think the "hi tech" unis like the new broncos and falcons suck compared to the chiefs/packers/old bills.
