Don't know if it's been mentioned yet in the thread (too many pages to go through ha), but Fanatics is selling Black versions of the Saints Color Rush jersey and have it listed as "Alternate Game Jersey." (https://www.fanatics.com/nfl/new-orleans-saints/michael-thomas-new-orleans-saints-nike-alternate-game-jersey-black/o-1338+t-81592520+p-58424624259+z-9-132332964?_ref=p-TLP:m-NAFH:i-r0c3:po-3)

Could be nothing, or could mean we will be getting an on-field version for the first time since the first year of Nike.

Maybe they can get the helmets they used for the AFL legacy games in 2009 when the NFL goes back to letting teams to use another helmet again.

They could literally do this right now (see Bills, Giants, Bears).  Not like they're ever gonna acknowledge their original black & gold set.

The Raiders wear the silver numbers as their color rush. They wore them against the 49ers in 2018 and last year in Oakland against the Chargers.

 

I know that, but the Color Rush uniform is but a pale imitation.  The numbers have a thinner outline; I think a light-colored number needs the thick outline on a light-colored jersey.  And I loathe the white pants.

This looks so much better.

I really hope that never happens.  The sport isn't safe to play under the best of circumstances, don't want it made any more dangerous.

They did wear silver pants with the CR uniforms vs the Chargers last year.

I still think black numbers look better.

The silver numbers don't look bad, but when it comes to what's easier to read from a distance, black is the right choice.

All the Saints need is this uniform and the white version they've been using as color rush. That's it.

Might be an unpopular opinion, but I like the larger fleur-de-lis. Espeically with the color rush jersey and if they bring the black version of it.

I don't think it's an unpopular opinion - the Saints' old logo is so much better than the messy, cluttered one they wear today.

I think the problem is that the saints were basically wearing recolored packers uniforms. While this was their best look, multiple teams going back to this era would create a very homogenized aesthetic. Would be better if they tool the old gold/black/white and came up with something a tad more unique but not modern.

If the Saints could throwback to the late 80's Jim Mora unis with the Fleur-de-lis State logo, I would be happy with that.Those are still my favorite unis.

It's not like he could be wearing any other helmet.

 

The 2000s uniforms are good the the Bucco Bruce creamsicles are sooooo much better.

I absolutely love the silver numbers, but they still work best as an alternate look.

But wear these pants and socks with the white jersey, please.

Which is probably why it's better they be worn for night games.

Which is why there is none on the pewter Color Rush jersey.

I think they meant large amounts of orange and pewter, orange could have easily been used as an accent color on that uniform and improve it.
