I was 7 for 8 for Week 11 so let's try again:

 

3 white at homes is tough: I think TB, DAL, BUF

2 Throwbacks: DET, maybe NO if Buffalo isn't in throwback? But if BUF is throwback then IDK who the other WAH would be

5 Color Rush: DEN, LAC, MIN?, IND?, BAL?

 

I'm torn on a few of these. We must be in for some big surprises.

 

 

you basically have it except for 1 of the color rush

Lions are home to Chicago for Week 12 , the early T'Giving Day game. They are wearing their throwback set. They play Buffalo the following week

Yeah, I realize that's not what anyone is asking for, but unfortunately, that isn't how these things work.  You can't just say, here, we'll give you the ability to have an alternate helmet, but you have to promise to be discrete and tasteful with it. Given the option, the teams that are already cautious and careful with their visual brand will most likely remain so, and the teams that aren't will do something stupid.  Plus, Nike's gonna Nike.

 

Safest play is just to take it out of everyone's hands. One helmet, no worries. Now if we could just go back to only one alt jersey, restricted to twice a year, I'd be even happier.  

 

It worked before. If the NFL says ALT color helmets for throwbacks only that that's what the teams have to do.

God I really hope the one he's wrong about is the Vikings. Lets not ruin the Packers matchup with color rush. They didn't wear em last year so hopefully they won't agin this year.

 

If they had to go mono I'd rather they just wear the regular purple pants and jerseys than the color rush. Because at least there's some white in there (for instance sock bottoms) to break it up. But that's like choosing the bullet to the head over 1000 cuts.

Exactly. It's not like opening up the helmet rule will suddenly usher in a new era of garish alternate helmets.

 

"Teams can have two helmets. One must be paired with the standard home/away/alternate uniforms, and any alternate helmet must be an exact replica of a historical helmet worn by that team, to only be paired with a replica historical uniform."

 

That solves the issue of not just a random black or chrome alternate helmet, but also gets around the one-off helmet logos teams like the Jets have done for Color Rush games. A helmet shouldn't be just defined as the color of the shell, but as the entire design of the piece of equipment.

I know.I didn't say they were playing each other. I just meant depending on what the Bills do in their game.

Maybe since Tennessee is wearing white/navy this week, they'll end up in white/light blue in Houston for MNF next week. That would actually be better anyway and the team seems to rotate its combos on a fairly consistent basis, so that could be next on the queue. We've already seen a navy-heavy matchup of them on MNF against the other Texas team, so hopefully this happens, especially since it's a big divisional game now. 

I wonder if they will wear Color Rush and or Navy over White for any of their upcoming home games?

Looks like an all-black color rash. 

They would wear all black when the lions were all grey

Yeah, it would look bad, but the Normal Monochrome look would be better than the CR. The lesser of two evils.

I'm really surprised the Packers have decided to wear Color Rush on their own. It isn't mandatory so this is definitely a team choice. Not even wearing green socks to keep it looking traditional too.

This Packers all white look is nice. I wouldn't hate them wearing it twice a season (maybe one early in the year and one late). Packers standard uniforms are nice, but the all white is a fresh change of pace. Wish Patriots would bring back their all white look as well. 

 

Shame Seahawks didn't wear their color rush, would have been a fun uni matchup.
