One Year Uniforms

Tuesday morning musings...The Patriots had a 2-year uniform (1991-92) followed by two one-year uniforms (1993 and 1994). Is that an NFL record for changes in such a short period of time?

On another note, I think the NFL's 5-year rule on changing jerseys (which must have come after the Patriots switched again in 1995) is far too conservative compared to other sports leagues. No wonder the Rams are in such a predicament, but I get that most of it is their own fault.

What specifically was different about 1991-92 compared to 1990? Red pants on the road? Red facemasks?

The Ravens had one year road uniforms 4 years in a row, from 1996 - 1999.

 

1996: inaugural set

1997: number font changed, new striping on black road pants

1998: white road pants 

1999: current helmet logo, bird logo on sleeves

What about the St.Louis Rams removing the gold piping from the sides of the jersey? When they changed away from the yellow and blue to the navy and gold, there were gold stripes running down the sides of the jerseys. They looked really bad on the away jerseys. I’m not quite sure the stripes made it to the regular season.

The gold side panels were there for the Rams' first two years in the navy-and-gold set, 2000 and 2001. Their last game with them was the Super Bowl loss to the Patriots:

The side panels were gone by the 2002 opener, which was a loss to the Broncos:

Prior to 2015, the only major departure the Browns ever made from their classic look was a one-year uniform...

They also used orange numbers in the preseason and changed them to white and brown with orange trim, respectively, before the regular season.

My favorite one-year uniform is also one of my favorite Brewers uniforms of all: their 1971 flannels.  Sandwiched in between the Seattle hand-me-downs and the move to polyester pull-overs, these were real classics.  Their own look, if short-lived.

The Ravens whole first year (1996) set was a one year uniform.  In 1997, the number font changed on both jerseys and white pants were introduced with the home uniform.

I prefer the Brewers to use a script but this is a fantastic uniform. Too bad it was so short lived.

Swap the orange for red and the brown for black, and you have a great-looking Falcons uniform.
