I love throwbacks, especially the Dallas ones. I wish the Saints would follow suit.

By the way, have any other teams recently worn throwbacks in the preseason? Just a question I'm throwing out there.

Not only are they wearing throwbacks, but some of the jerseys (Marion Barber and Julius Jones) have the "Cowboys" script just below the neckline, while Terry Glenn doesn't have an NFL Equipment patch on his jersey.

saints are home team tonight and wearing white. is this a sign that they might think of wearing white at home this season? i would welcome that change!

Quite a few teams only wear white in preseason, to make the first time they wear the home jerseys (ostensibly the first home game of the season) seem more special. It's possible the Saints are saving their black jerseys for their first true home game in 2 years, on September 25.

The announce crew made note of the fact that it's hotter then hell out there so I think the Saints wore white for that reason more then anything else.

It was noted that it was 100+ degrees in Shreveport today. That could have something to do with them wearing white...

In fact, I just looked it up - game-time temp was 97 with a dew point of 66... That's a heat index of 102, and that's at 7 p.m.

Actually the logo's been smaller for 5 or 6 seasons now. And no, those helmet numbers aren't new or different. I shot this 2 years ago at Lambeau - same size fleur-de-lis, same helmet numbers.

Note Aaron Brooks' full name is on his jersey because they had a received named Ahmad Brooks on the roster at the time. After Ahmad was released, Aaron's jersey name was back to Brooks.

As for tonight's performance by the Saints, this isn't me but he must have been watching them also...

However guys the Saints are wearing the white jerseys at home in the end of October against the Bengals. The Bengals list the black jersey as the jersey they will be wearing for that game on their website. So that's where I think people are coming to the conclusion that Saints might be thinking about doing that all season.

Was that a preseason game or the blowout last year?

As bad as the Saints are likely going to be this year, it won't matter whether they are wearing black, white or polka-dot home jerseys. They won't have much of an advantage with any of them.

Wearing white at home (except for a early season warm weather game) is lame. The only team that should get a pass is Dallas, because they have done it continuously for so long.

It stinks when a team wears the same uniform for every single game in a season. Its boring.

i disagree...there are several teams that just look better in white uniforms. Dallas, Washington, Miami, Carolina. yeah these teams have done it for awhile, but i still think white looks better for the saints

I love it when teams wear white at home, but only when THEY are playing dallas, forcing them to wear their "unlucky" blue jerseys. If Dallas wants to be superstitious and dumb about the whole thing by wearing white all the time, other teams should be able to screw with them.
