infrared41's Best and Worst - Week 4 NFL 2019

Recommended Posts

Apologies for running way late this week. Real life got in the way. Since we're so late, let's dispense with the pleasantries and get right to the lists. As always, the lists are solely my opinion. Your opinion may (and probably will) be different than mine. That's fine. Keep the conversation civil and the rest will take care of itself. 

 

Best:

 

1. Raiders - Colts: Two stone cold classic looks. It doesn't get any better. Every game should look this good.

2. NY Giants - Washington: This one probably gets the top spot in most weeks, but not this one. Another great match up of two classic looks.

3. Cowboys - Saints: Put the Saints in gold pants and this one is in the running for the top spot. That said, it's another great looking match up.

4. Eagles - Packers: You know it's a strong week when this game is number four on the list.

5. Bengals - Steelers: A rare Bengals appearance on the best list. I thought the CR uniforms looked pretty good matched up against the Steelers. There's still work to be done, but this Bengals look is the best Bengals look. Needed black on the socks.

Worst:

 

1. Seahawks - Cardinals: A whole lotta ugly going on here. The Cardinals have a great helmet. That's something, I guess.

2. Browns - Ravens: This could have been this week's "Not the worst looking game I've ever seen", but the Ravens ruined it with the monochrome purple. Holy hell, what a mess.

3. Jaguars - Broncos: What happens when two good color schemes are very poorly executed? This does.

That's all for this week. I'm headed out of town on Monday so the lists may be late again, but we'll do it all again sometime next week. Thanks for taking a look.

I'm a huge fan of the purple/purple black for the Ravens.

 

Purple socks would have killed it, but the black makes it look good to me.

Surprised Bears-Vikings didn't make either list. Personally I'm a huge fan of the throwbacks, but I could definitely see why someone wouldn't like them. I'd put that game at #2 on the best list but the rest I think is spot on.

Wow...no Buccaneers on the worst list for two straight weeks?  Kinda surprised.

Baltimore's monochrome purple was fantastic. Most players wore black socks, some wore white, but either choice was better than purple socks. For me, the is how to do monochrome...the socks must be a different color.

This look is classic enough that it still gives me nightmares about The Ghost to the Post.

 

It would look even better if the Colts' pants stripes weren't so wide, but they probably counts as nitpicking.

Is it just me or do the Colts pants look like a dull silver instead of white?

Follow-up. I think we need to make a distinction between monochrome and jersey/pants matching.

 

 

And what would that distinction be? Call it what you want, it's still uglier than :censored:

I think the Bears jerseys are solid and the helmet was OK, but the rest of the uniform didn't do much for me.

NYG vs WAS was #1 for me. I don’t care for either individually, but when together, the colors look great. I prefer games where there’s warm and cool colors, opposed to something like Colts and Raiders where it’s all cool. 
 

Bengals should never make this list in those all white uniforms (or their regular ones.)

Overall, I really like this matchup, but like you I wish the Saints had gold pants to match. I'd also like it if they changed the shade of gold on their helmets to be more like the shade used on the rest of the color rush set.

 

I've normally hated the Cowboys in blue, but I've started to come around on it. I still don't like the number outlines, and would prefer that the sleeve stripes didn't have the star over them.

the Bears ‘36 uniform is my all time favorite. ive waited so many years to see it on field and the matchup against the Viks i think was a solid choice. if i have a dying uniform wish, its to see it worn with the Lions throwbacks, but they still totally delivered for me. it was a great day to be a football uniform nerd

They play the Lions on Thanksgiving. Why not have both teams wear their throwbacks for that? The Bears should not wear white at home under any circumstance.

It makes to much sense to wear them on Thanksgiving against the Lions.
