"They should be our normal [uniforms],” Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Ja’Wuan James said in the Palm Beach Post. “We just work here, though. I like the numbers. That green is a deeper green. The striping. The orange sticks out. They’re very comfortable, too.”

the perfect week to wear them. the writer of the Dolphins Fight Song was in the building today. got to show him and his wife around the place and what we've been doing with the fight song in terms of creative and marketing pieces. trying to build upon the throwback gamedays, bring the fight song and more throwback-ish things into the rotation. we'll wear them next week vs New England too

I like this guy.

And what a good looking matchup in general.

They need to ditch the current set (sorry, B ) and go back to those full time.

That is a nice, clean look for both teams.  The only thing better would be the look from the late 80's-early 90's.

Yea this is a good look too. Hate the Dolphins but up until they sort of cartoonized things a bit during the Jimmy Johnson era they had excellent uniforms. I prefer their 80's duds to the late 80's/early 90's that you see above. But that look is solid too

 

The Dolphins from their inception to the Johnson era had a great natural uniform evolution. Subtle changes, never anything insane and drastic

 

Never like these though. The color was a bit too rich. And the drop shadow too heavy.

Miami's upgrade this offseason was very welcome...but just finish the job already. Go all the way and wear the 60's look fulltime

Rumor has it, they are working on a white version of the throw backs too

So, it will he Home Primary, Away Primary, Home Throwback, and Away Throwback Next Year? This (deleted)? says 2nd Alternate.

I'm guessing he means it will be a Color Rush uniform? They'd have to have different striped socks but that would be a very interesting and clean look.

All i know, if they get this as a 2nd alternate, they would have one of the nicest uniforms in league in current and alternates combined

How often will they (and every other team) be allowed to wear both sets of alternates? I'm guessing 4 games max. 2 for each

 

well since Tom done spilled the beans, lol

 

this wouldnt be a CR uniform. new rules says you can wear 2 alternates [EDIT: i believe the rule is if you have 2 alternates, 1 has to be a throwback]; we would choose those alternates to both be a ‘66 throwback and i imagine wear one of them on the road at least once. 

 

we tried to do it this year and make it a surprise. we wanted to say nothing and have the team run out onto the field with the white jersey. but Nike wouldnt do it; i mean we just needed 54 jerseys but of course they have their reasons for wanting to capitalize on that too. 

 

all of this could change over the offseason. theres a meeting set for us to talk about it next week, but not sure what we’ll be discussing at this time.

Hopefully the Dolphins can work out some sort of deal with the league to slightly expand their number of throwback games. 

I’m thinking eight for the road whites and eight for the home aquas.

Yeah the Dolphins are really close. All they have to do to look perfect is add a white version of that throwback set to pair with the current throwback, and absolutely nuke the rest of their look, logo and all. If they did that, they’d look perfect!

You know how stubborn teams are and how much they hate admitting mistakes especially in regards to uniform travesties. Instead of a total fix as soon as possible, they'll drag it on for years making upgrade tweaks here and there and hang on to their mistake for as long as possible before giving in

what if the approach is to preserve the good feels of the old Dolphins by wearing the '66 uni as a throwback alternate and not taking the risk of the modern team's potential failures that might taint the perception of that historic value?
