Future of NFL "Color Rush"

1. The TNF contract is up after this year. I could see CBS opting out (Nantz and Simms have to be worn out by now anyway) and Fox Sports 1 being the new home.

2. Division games are likely to stay. The rule is no games on Thursday between teams more then 1 time zone away. There might be a few games like tonight (Rams/Bucs) which fit the criteria location-wise. But it will mostly stay a division/division deal.

Paul Lukas is reporting that the Bears color rush next year will be mono-navy and not mono-orange.

So this except with all navy socks/cleats:

Are the Color Rash games next year all going to be divisional games? Cause if the Lions go all black, the Vikings and Packers will both have to be in all yellow. Yikes.

True. So it's basically these matchups if it's divisional:

Navy Bears vs. Yellow Vikings/Packers (Do Green and Navy contrast enough?)

Navy Bears vs. Silver Lions (can maybe get away with Honolulu blue)

Black Lions vs. Yellow Vikings/Packers

Purple/Green Vikings/Packers vs. Silver Lions (ditto Lions/Bears)

Purple/Green Vikings/Packers vs. Yellow Vikings/Packers

Is that second point a new rule this year? The Chiefs played in Oakland on a Thursday night last season. Wasn't aware of that.

I dont know if that is a new rule, but a few years back the Jets played the pats at home on a sunday night. Then they played Denver on a Thursday in Denver.

I don't see the NFL Network only broadcasting divisional games next year.

I think the time zone format is in the CBA, so it can't change until that's changed.

As for FS1, it doesnt make sense for the NFL to sell the rights to another Cable Net, they'll sell it to another broadcast network with a wider audience. Not to mention FS1 may not even exist come next season.

Would the Raiders wear all black or all silver?

They'd do what they always do and tell the NFL to get dicked.

.

If Al Davis were still alive he'd never let the NFL dictate to him by having the Raiders go monochrome black, white, or silver.

He'd only do throwback '63, '64, or 1970 ... I'm sure of it.

He'd tell the NFL to get ****** with this color-rush BS.

even with all of his flaws, he still had qualities you have to admire. id love to think he would do just that.

God that Oilers set is a thing of beauty. I think this was 2009. They also wore the columbia blue throwbacks as well. I do not think they wore both versions during the same season though.

If i could have sex with a uniform set that would be it.

I don't know what it is, but Tampa is just so garishly bright that they're actually hard to watch. That color red is too much to wear head to toe. Pair those jerseys with the "pewter pants though, and you have a MUCH better set.

The Bucs need to ditch the Orange. It's a relic of the past and just doesn't work with their color scheme, especially since they brightened everything up. Red, pewter, white. That's all you need.

So it IS navy, not royal. That cancels out the only logical explanation for the white in the pants stripe. I assumed they were just re-purposing the throwback pants. But no, those are new pants specifically designed for this uniform.

Yes. Dumb.

You're right. These are a completely new set of pants and there's no excuse for that white stripe.
