  1. It's true the AFC team had the choice of jerseys for the Super Bowl that concluded that 1979 season, so that would have been the Oilers. I have no idea what their preferences were at that time, but I assume they would have chosen the blue jersey. Either way, it would have been beautiful. Consolation prize was that we got to see those classic Rams uniforms in the Super Bowl that year. Still, going from 0-26 to the Super Bowl in two years would have been historic for the Bucs. They were my second-favorite team from 1976-96. After the uniform change I became indifferent.
  2. Yes, Houston Oilers vs anyone. This was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the thread title. I will always regret that these two teams were each one win away from this being the uniform matchup for Super Bowl XIV. Speaking of Houston, how about Reds vs Astros, 1971? Both teams were wearing their best looks ever at that time. The two guys in this photo were traded for one another the following winter, by the way.

    The popularity of the Steelers uniforms is based, in large part, on what the team has accomplished while wearing them. Take away the six titles and it would be viewed by more people for what it is: an average uniform with a silly-looking helmet that has a sticker on one side but not the other.

    Seeing that photo, I'm so glad I don't watch the Reds attempt to play baseball anymore.

    The Astros looked the best in their history when they emphasized the orange, before the rainbow guts. I can take or leave the shooting star, but this set is a thing of beauty, topped off by perhaps my favorite cap of all time, all teams included...

    Looking good!
  7. Teal and orange would have been perfect for the Marlins.
  8. Future of NFL "Color Rush"

    The silly one-helmet rule would prevent it, but it would be interesting to see the Bengals simulate the albino tiger for one game or, dare I say it, as a twice-a-year alternate...

    I hope this gimmick is short-lived. Having them fall apart or fall off every game would be a good start.

    In that case, wear solid brown caps with a gold SD on them. If they must have the yellow panel caps (which I do like, by the way), then spring for $40 per player and buy a second helmet for everyone.

    I like the Padres brown helmets (would rather have shiny than matte, though) and I like the Padres brown caps, but why are they wearing a mismatch? Why not make the caps and helmets match?

    Flaming thumbtack. I've never heard it called that, but it fits. I've always called it the flaming ball thing. It's ugly by any name.

    The Padres revenues are only about $250,000,000. Helmets cost money. We're talking about an extra $40 per player here. Where are you going to find an extra $40 per player in a quarter billion dollar budget?
