Is "Bill-ieve" an actual thing up in Buffalo? Or was this just made up because 'Choke Slam Through a Flaming Table" wouldnt fit on a hat?

Is there a slower looking qb number than 17? I can’t imagine 17 running around and making athletic plays. 17s have always been the Steve Debergs and David Kreigs of the world.

You may be on to something. Outside of maybe Quincy Carter, I cant think of another QB who wore #17 that one might consider "elusive"

 

Rivers, Osweiler, and Tannehill are all rather "statuesque" currently.

I think 18 is a fatter, snowman number.  19 is also close, but 18 takes it ever so slightly.

Charlie Ward—if we're not limiting it to just NFL QBs.

I'm not sure Carter was ever really considered "elusive", at least not in the NFL.  From what I remember, he got sacked a lot and didn't make a ton of plays with his feet.  Was a while ago though.

Good call on that one, but he's literally the only "athletic" #17 I can think of, even going back to my high-school days.

 

For some reason, it seems to work for WRs, but QBs just seem like they're made of concrete when they wear it.

It's a thing. I expect those hats will actually sell pretty well around here.

I HATE the buds uniforms and number font, they had a great look and went and changed it just for changes sake when Nike took over, definitely a down grade. I think if the had kept the previous uniform and just added the updated logos along with the numbering font from their old practice units that would be a great improvement!

Funny that the practice jersey has "traditional" shadowing rather than the stupid up-shadow that their gamers use.

 

Also, that pic just reinforces my belief that the brown facemask ruins the helmet.  Gray all the way.

Billy Kilmer was a pretty big run/pass threat in the first few years of his career with the 49ers. He had 987 yards rushing in his first two seasons, but just 523 over the remaining 15 seasons of his career. Some say it was due to injuries, but I think wearing #17 took its toll.
