Every game that had those jerseys on Thursday night, they looked horrible and gave me some kind of headache.

I want to say around week 4, all I watched was Saints games and next to nothing else the rest of the season until the playoffs. The refs are a joke, the rule changes are a joke, Globalization is a money grab, you can't play defense now without a flag getting thrown (unless you're SEA, NE, PITT, CAR) and this 3 day draft is a crock. I keep saying, Saints move and i'm done

I'm a little surprised at all this opposition to a jersey combination that's only going to be worn on Thursday nights. The combos I've seen have looked pretty good. I would have loved to wear them. The Jags **** was ugly, but everybody else was cool. I guess it's a generation gap or something.

You don't need gimmicks if your product is already the best on the planet.

Disagree completely. I've seen plenty of great games on Thursday.

The worst football game I've ever seen was better than anything the NBA or MLB has to offer.

The throw-back (throw-up) uni's were as gay as soccer and men's badminton. And now we're forced to endure gay looking uniforms for Thursday night football? Ugh!!!

Slo...just this year the league is proposing a yellow and red card system, so there's that to consider when processing my statement...

Amid ample opposition, NFL tables “yellow card” rule | ProFootballTalk

...and Goodell has not stop pushing Europe as the next theatre for the National Football League...

It's time to take down public and private self-serving, unaccountable bureaucrats and cast them out...

And one other thing - I'd tell Goodell we want our two *** D*mn draft picks back you arrogant SOB...
