I don't want to know how bad things will be if we're missing Color Rush 10 years from now. Like how everyone was happy to see [redacted] go, but then started to miss him once [redacted] was [redacted] [redacted] of the [redacted] .

Some me of the jerseys and pants on their own weren’t terrible but when paired together and adding same color socks it made it awful.

 

 

Now if they’d only get rid of that stupid helmet rule and do throwback Thursday's.

It was pretty good in theory, but very very mediocre in execution. Some teams have solid alternate jerseys from Color Rush and I hope they still use them.

I'd say it was awful for the NFL in theory and execution.

 

Happy that it is not mandated any longer since games will be less ugly to watch.

Thank god! I never want to see the Rams in yellow again! 

I hope you mean the full yellow and not the throwback.

I mean as in the jersey being primarily yellow. I absolutely want the the current royal and yellow throwbacks stay and for a return to that scheme when the new stadium opens.

I agree. The primarily yellow jerseys made them look like the Wolverines

No, it was a terrible theory! What did anyone think was to be gained from making the Titans match periwinkle socks with periwinkle shoes? Who would do such a thing?

Good riddance to these atrocities...

The only good things to come out of Color Rush are the Saints, Giants, Broncos and Cowboys faux-back jerseys (and pants) which I hope we get to see them wear as alternates more frequently next year.

As somebody who cares about aesthetics, and cares about the sport, I’m thrilled to see this go. 

 

Me, too.  However, at least it was confined to games I largely didn't care about.  With the various parts of the Color Rush uniforms still out there, my concern is we'll see them mixed into rotations in bad ways.

Yup... witness the people who wistfully bring up baseball's TATC monstrosities.

Whereas I want to see the Rams in yellow at least 8 times a year.

Gothamite had an interesting theory on Color Rush (don't remember whether he came up with it or brought it in from elsewhere), which was that the NFL was really shopping smartphone rights around and wanted to optimize uniforms for tiny screens by reducing them to single-color blobs. It's bad enough that football is already less a sport than it is a TV show. How awful to think that it would further devolve into being an app.

Now, if there's a way to pair Color Rush jerseys with regular pants (or vice versa), I would be okay with that. I mean, there are some teams which can pull that off. For example, Buffalo's red jerseys can be combined with their regular white pants. That wouldn't be bad, right?

 

However, there are some Color Rush uniforms that are so, so awful.

I'd love for the Jets to wear the kelly green color rush jerseys with white pants this season.

If the uniform you describe is the Bills best look, why shouldn't they wear it all the time?

 

And if it isn't, why would they wear it at all?

 

That, I think, summarizes the dis-like many of us have for this whole program.

I'm not sure those are going anywhere? Especially considering they came out the year before the Color Rush jerseys.

Time for Throwback Thursday's!

 

I wouldn't even mind some type of "Heritage" night or something where teams keep their helmet shells (because they have to) but add modded throwback logos or something. Bucco Bruce in pewter and red, Oilers scheme in Texans colors, Pat the Patriot on the silver helmet, etc. Something similar to how Denver handled it.

Now to make these beauts the primaries... with contrasting color pants, of course:

The rest? Burn 'em.*

Not sad to see this go. I did like the Bengals color rush, although I'm sure that's an unpopular opinion. I live in Cincinnati, so Bengals stuff is everywhere and I've been exposed to it more than the others. Their color rush maybe lacked some of the character of the regular uniforms, but I like it more than their regular away.

Needs:

 

Broncos: white pants with navy/orange/navy stripes

Saints: I'm okay with the white pants they worn, and sticking with the old gold is a must

Patriots: I guess they'd stick with silver pants, but navy/red/navy stripes? Trying to think of other stripe combos that would look really good. Red/white/red on silver probably looks too football-movie-ish.
