Not a lot to talk about this week. One outstanding match up, a couple really good ones, and one above average. Luckily for us, there weren't any match ups bad enough to make the worst list. But one team looked so awful that it can't go without comment. So put 60 seconds on the clock and let's play a lightning round of our game. Best: 1. Colts at Texans: Normally, playing in a dome under artificial light seems to drain the colors out of a uniform. That's not the case with the Texans. I don't know if they planned it or if it's just blind luck, but the Texans look as good in artificial light as they do in sunlight. Throw in one of the best road looks in the NFL with the Colts and this one was the easy pick for the top spot this week. A lot of blue, but it works. 2: Steelers at Browns: Barring a highly improbable meeting in the playoffs, this is probably the last time for the foreseeable future that we'll get to enjoy this match up of two outstanding football uniforms. Why the Browns brass believes they can improve on this look is an enduring mystery. Why the Steelers stick with that italic number font is another one. 3. 49ers at Rams: Despite my love of traditional uniforms, this Rams throwback is not one of my favorites - I prefer their current blue over gold look. But the throwbacks are still a very good look. When you add the 49ers road uniforms to the mix, this one has to make the best list. 4. Lions at Vikings: I didn't like it at first, but I have to admit that I've become a fan of the Vikings current look. There are still a couple things I'm not crazy about like the number font and the black facemask, but overall it's a good look. The Lions are the Lions - a few tweaks away from looking great. Worst: The Philadelphia Eagles: I get that wearing all white was probably getting a little old, but nothing can justify this... That's it for this week. Drop by next week for another infuriating/exciting edition.
Last week, we had seven teams make the best list. That won't be the case this week, but we still had some really good looking games - and a game that could have been in the running for the best of the season, but decided not to. And we got to see some truly awful uniforms take the field this week. So without further adieu, put 60 seconds on the clock and let's play our game. Best: 1. NY Giants at Washington: The Giants have one of my favorite road looks. I don't care about the red. I don't care about the stripes. It's a good looking uniform and that's all that matters to me. Throw in Washington's home look and we have ourselves a game worthy of the #1 spot on the best list. Great looking game. And a great helmet match up. 2. Eagles at 49ers. The 49ers home uniforms are a top five look. The Eagles in all white looks better to me every week. Great looking game. 3. Bills at Texans: Almost put this one at #2 but I liked the color contrast better in game #2. The Texans are a perfect example of how a uniform doesn't have to look like the result of a designer's acid trip to be "modern." The Bills look should be the first chapter in the "How to modernize a uniform without ruining it" textbook. Another great helmet match up. 4. Lions at Jets: As long as the green pants aren't involved, the Jets have one of the best looks in the league. I'd like to say that the Lions look is growing on me, but it's not. I don't like it any more now than I did when it debuted. The Lions are the prime example of a team's look improving through attrition - the Buccaneers ruined their look and the Lions move up another notch. When the Browns inevitably ruin their uniform next season, the Lions will move up again. Still not a bad looking game. This week's worst list is more like a "one team ruined what could have been a good looking game" list Worst: 1. Packers at Bears: It's almost impossible for the Chicago Bears to make the worst list - key word being "almost." There is one thing that can get one of the best dressed teams in the NFL on the worst list and it's those awful Bears throwbacks. This game should have been the runaway, no doubt about it, best game of the week. Going into the weekend, I was sure this game would be #1 on the best list. Instead, we got the Bears in what my GF described as "broke-ass Wal Mart uniforms." I get that the Bears are going to wear those 1950's High School uniforms twice a year, but couldn't they at least wear them against teams with bad uniforms? No, it's not the worst looking game of the week. It's here because the Bears really botched what could have been the best looking match up of the year. They need to be punished for that. 2. Saints at Cowboys: Keep the black pants in the dumpster, and the Saints have a great look. But for reasons passing understanding, the Saints always send someone over to the dumpster to bring out the black pants to ruin another game. No black pants and this one has a spot on the best list. Oh well, it was still a great helmet match up. 3. Panthers at Ravens: Another "what could have been game." The Ravens are the original improve through attrition team. They look pretty good when wearing the purple jerseys and white pants. Their all black look may be the worst look in the NFL - and in a league that has the Bucs, Jags, Cards, Bengals, and Seahawks, that's really saying something. Thanks for ruining what would have been a good looking game, Baltimore. 4. Patriots at Chiefs: The Chiefs in all red. Who thought that was a good idea? I held off doing this week's list just so I could watch this game to decide if it made the best list. Needless to say, that ship sailed with the opening kickoff. 5. Jaguars at Chargers: The theme of this week's worst list is "what could have been" and this game is the perfect example of that. The only thing wrong with this Jags look is that idiotic helmet. Fix the helmet, lose the black pants, and I think the Jags would have a really nice modern uniform. The Chargers just need to go back to any of their previous looks. That's it for this week. Thanks for dropping by. We'll be back next week with another exciting/infuriating edition.
Week one was filled with controversy and mod edits. Let's see if we can do better in week two, folks. Another fairly average week. A couple great games, a couple good games, and fortunately for us, only one truly ugly game. No disasters this week. So without further adieu, let's get to the games... Best: We had another very tight battle for the #1 spot and a real shocker at #5. 1. Jets at Packers: As I mentioned last week, the Jets have one of the best all-white looks in the league. The Packers have one of the best looks in football. Throw them together and we have uniform perfection. Games don't look any better than this. 2. Saints at Browns: Fortunately, the Saints didn't ruin this classic by going mono-black. Even better, the Browns didn't ruin it by wearing their God-awful brown pants. Sadly, this is probably the last season we'll be able to enjoy these wonderful Browns uniforms - at least until the requisite 5 years pass at which point the Browns will realize the awful mistake they made by "modernizing" and return to these classics. 3. Bears at 49ers: (fixing a glaring omission on my part) The Bears have the best home look in the NFL. The Bears road look, while pretty good, isn't in the same ballpark as their home look. If any team needs to go to all white on the road, it's the Bears. Don't get me wrong, I think the Bears road uniform is definitely in the upper tier, but all white would be much better. That, and I think it makes them look a little wimpy. That said, the Bears road look combined with the perfect 49ers uniform makes this a top three game. Put the Bears in all white and this one goes straight to #1. 4. Eagles at Colts: Overall, the Eagles look is one that I consider above average, but not great. It's OK. But I do really like their all-white look. In my opinion, it's the best combo they have. The Colts always look great. This game turned out to be a lot better looking than I thought it would. I figured the Eagles would be wearing the green pants. They didn't and thank goodness. 5. Lions at Panthers: One of the side effects of teams ruining "modernizing" their uniforms is that looks that were once considered average start to look better. It's improvement through attrition, I guess. Case in point: the Detroit Lions. The Lions don't have an awful look, but it's still a few tweaks from being a great look. Yet thanks to teams like Tampa Bay, the Lions move up on the best list simply because the Bucs look horrible. Anyway, the Panthers look good and the Lions looked OK. In an average week like this one, that's good enough for the #5 spot on the best list. Honorable mention: Seahawks at Chargers: No, that's not a typo. No, I'm not high. Normally, I'm not a fan of the look of either of these looks. The Seahawks are a regular member of my worst list. The Chargers are so boring that they never make either list. But there was something about this game. It just looked good to me. The Seahawks went with the best possible combo of a really bad uniform, and damn if the Chargers in all white wasn't the perfect look to offset Seattle. Separately, neither of these looks are likely to make the best list, but throw them together and somehow it works. Yeah, I'm as shocked as you are. Worst: Only one ugly game this week - and it was ugly in every possible way. 1. Rams at Buccaneers: What else needs to be said about the Bucs? How about this? Their numbers remind me of a digital watch I got for Christmas - back in the early 80's. The Rams have a perfectly fine look that they insist on ruining by wearing those horrible blue pants. That's it for this week. We'll have another exciting/infuriating edition next week.
