I love those Oilers uniforms too. I have an Earl Campbell jersey.

The Reskins have the coolest color combo in the entire NFL, and it has remained sharp since the current uniform scheme was introduced at the beginning of the Gibbs era. Maybe they want to have a redo for Shanny, but I am not so sure we will get the same results. I guess I am more of an anti hype guy anymore. It seems the more they hype something up, the less genuine or less quality that object or product is. Unfortunately, in this case , it means the NFL.

It's the off-season bro. Also, allow us to enjoy this conversation about the uniforms without steering it off the proverbial doom and gloom cliff.

Thanks.

Nothing to do with doom and gloom, just those are the facts. It is a marketing gimmick and hype.

I'll second this. It's bad enough that we get all pissy at each other during the season, but now we have to do it the entire offseason too? Sigh.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

It's very clear some people simply like a jersey with numbers on it and pants with two team color stripes going down the side.

I respect the old uni's but their so plain and simple. I like the new designes, like the Bronco' and Vikings. Heck I'm sure I'm one of the few bu I like what Oregon does with their uni's and helmet.

Bottom line for me, it's my team, they are "just" uniforms, and they aren't maroon and black equivalents of the bumblebees up north. I'm good with them.

They're still the 'skins. I mean, until the Redskins match their glory years in modern times, I'll always identify the white jerseys with burgundy pants as the main Redskins uniform, but I'd be all for incorporating the throwback colors (the true gold color) with something new.
