Bizarre/Unusual Numbers on Jerseys

To me personally this was bizarre in 1996. At one point receivers in the teens were nothing out of the ordinary...Alworth, Maynard, Charlie Joiner. But by now that had long faded away and aside from an oddity here and there (Jim Jensen, who started out as a QB and got to keep 11) receivers wore numbers in the 80's. The only way you could choose a # in the teens was if all numbers in the 80's were already filled. Such was the case with the wretched 1996 Jets. So Keyshawn settled on 19 and kept it. 

 

Despite the league history, I have never gotten used to wideouts wearing these numbers. I would personally rather have them choose 1-9 if nothing in the 80's is available...or even numbers in the 20's like Cliff Branch and Bob Hayes

That Joey Julius isn't a kicker. That's a linebacker that kicks.

I bet it's been posted, but Joe Sakic wore #91 at the Olympics.

That's also why Joe Thornton wears 97 and Jonathan Toews wears 16 for team Canada.

C'mon, there's really only one way to show Sakic wearing 91 at the Olympics...
