I only called it color rush because teams seem to still be using that style as their alternate. I didn't know what else to call it since the aqua is the "throwback" option.

So "Two Alternates: 1 Throwback, 1 Color Rush" is out? I knew the Color Rush could be a throwback...but even the 49ers wore all white socks last year with the throwback (so it would effectively be a Color Rush) 

 

Apologies in advance if I missed that change.

 

yea, its confusing. CR used to be a requirement; teams had to wear that once a year on their TNF game. the new rule is, every team can have 1 alternate jersey (team choice, it could be anything), or a 2nd alternate jersey if one is a throwback (the Dolphins alternate jerseys just both happen to be a throwback)

 

the CR is no longer required, but some teams still like using them and were pretty popular. im not sure if there are any rules on pants or socks options and teams have certainly gotten creative when it comes to mixing those pieces together. so, the damage of CR lives on in some ways

The NFL uniform guidelines are in a weird, undefined place right now. We hear that Color Rush is no longer required but teams can wear them as they please. And yet, teams like the 49ers implement “throwback” under the Color Rush line and use all white socks, which were not era appropriate.

On the other hand, there are teams like the Cowboys who take certain aspects of their Color Rush set and integrate it into their normal wardrobe (white pants).

At this point, it’s no longer clear how the uniform protocol works. Could teams with Color Rush sets use regular colored socks? Could they use their Color Rush jersey with pants from their regular set? The lines are blurred now.

 

the 49ers definitley took liberties there; they didn't have to go all white, but still wanted to push the CR angle. it might have just been confusion on the teams part, or maybe no one from the teams really cared about the socks?

 

id say yes to your last 2 questions, its all up in the air right now and i definitley dont think the NFL cares too much about policing pants and socks; for them and Nike its all about the jerseys

Let's not forget the Raiders abandoned their white pants on their "Color Rush Throwback" and just turned it into a regular 1970 Throwback with the silver pants. I'm under the impression this is what the Raiders wanted to do the whole time but the league mandated them to wear all white.

Also, DeAndre Washington wore the actual color rush uniform on accident. Not sure how that made it onto the field.

As for the Color Rush uniforms in the league as a whole, the reason teams still go with the mono look is clearly because of team preference. I don't like it but it's what they want to do. You can't prohibit one color socks either because it will prevent throwbacks in the case of the Lions or Packers or maybe future teams.

Seahawks have two alts, the wolf greys and the.glow in the dark greens. No throwback to most fans frustration.

The greens were/are Color Rush though. I guess I should have said 1 Throwback/Alternate, 1 Color Rush.

Youz guys mean "awesome greens", right?

Oh I know, they’re hideous! Don’t you just wish to see every player in those unis shatter their ankles? Or just the rookies?

Throwback for Seahawks is out of the question...no silver helmet.

 

A fauxback could be as close as they get with the current breakdown.

That's why I think this could work. Better than the Wolf and Neon.

Seahawks green is awesome. In fact, I think navy blue socks are the only thing needed to balance that into a good full-time alternate uniform.

I'd love to see:

- Action green jersey

- White pants

- Navy socks

 

Usually I don't like helmet/shirt/pants not matching but I think it would be a good way to tone down the action green while still using it.

That Raiders look above is beautiful. I wouldn’t mind them keeping it full-time.

. I'd go further, and make each team designate a primary uniform combination... jersey, pants, and socks, that have to be worn together for at least 5 home games.

Like the Titans navy over white and the Saints black over gold

Only the ones with SR or II or III after their names, and since I'd hate risk ruining that great shade of green with blood stains, so maybe just something like a bad lisfranc rather than compound fracture.

Throw some navy socks on this, and it's a great uni.  I wouldn't mind seeing it with navy pants as well, but I think green over green is just fine.

They tried the green over navy and it didn't work. Fans hated it.

I really don't get the hate for those green uniforms, they match the regular blue versions and they only wear them a few teams each season.

I liked the darker pants they introduced with this and began wearing them with the white jerseys on Madden.

The Seahawks green unis are awesome but I must admit it's too much green for me.  At least balance it with navy socks.
