Yeah, with the exception of the Pittsburgh Steelers "bumblebee" jersey, I think I'd rather see throwback uni's, #shrug, but hey, it's all about marketing and attracting new fans, I suppose ... just look at these though ... looks like the battle of the ketchup/mustard bottles, .

On a footnote, this is what it's come to, bro ... we're discussing fashion now, #smh.
I like the color rush uniforms, especially the ones the Rams wore. I'm definitely not a traditionalist when it comes to uniforms. It we took our Black uniforms and only used the gold for outlines with no white in the jerseys I think they'd be bad ass. Basically like the Oregon pic, just gold where the neon Green is.

But it's the offseason. There's nothing going on just yet. Might as well talk a little fashion.

I propose we give my former teammate DeAndre Brown, WR from Southern Miss a tryout out though if we're talking football.

Do not give the owners any ideas here. they will dress the refs in pickle green uniforms in hopes of increasing concession stand revenues

Here's a solid black that might work with a fleur on the helmet, gold trim ...
Unfortunately for us, the "color rush" concept would not allow for black, as black is the absence of color. Since TNF is a division game, it is going to be either red (Clowns, Bucs) or powder blue (Pants) vs some aberration of the color gold... or honey mustard.

The worst of all is the Steelers "bumblebee" jersey. Not only is the shirt ugly, but OMG the pants....watch the game on TV in a bar, from a distance, the white guys on the team look like they are not wearing any!

Good hell. Those are hideous. Can we just watch football? It's bad enough we have a full month of ugly pink towels and gloves and cleats. Now they want to do a "color rush". Just stop. Before I throw up.
