Is anybody going to wear throwbacks in the NFL on Thanksgiving?

There is no more official throwback program put on by the NFL, so if a team chooses to wear a throwback, it must be considered as their alternate for the season.

So this year you will most likely see (with pics to follow in another post)

Dolphins in typical white vs. Lions in black (their alt unis)

Buccaneers in white vs. Cowboys in blue throwbacks (their alt unis)

Broncos in typical white vs. Chiefs in typical home red

Unis to (assumable) be worn on Thanksgiving:

its a shame if they dont. i liked when the whole league did it that entire weekend a few years back.

The last time the whole league wore throwbacks was 1994, and that was over the course of a season. What year are you talking about, HatMan? The whole league has never worn throwbacks for Thanksgiving weekend during this decade.

"The whole league" is refering to all the teams playing on Thanksgiving, I assume. This was, in fact, done last in 2004 I believe.

Proud quarterback memories for two proud franchises:

Joey Harrington and the Lions versus the Colts.

Craig Krenzel and the Bears versus the Cowboys.

At least one QB got what was comin' to him...

As you can see, all 4 teams are wearing either throwbacks or throwback-inspired alternates.

Oh I remember when all 4 teams wore throwbacks...I was just confused by HatMan's phrasing of "whole league" and "entire weekend". Perhaps he is talking about how NFL.com used to put up retro logos on its site for the whole league except for Tampa Bay during Thanksgiving weekend...I don't know.

The lack of a throwback program is completely stupid.

The idea of putting together a weekend where all teams that have them wear throwbacks would be tremendous, not just from the fans point of view, but also, think about the fact that these jerseys often outsell the regular ones.

I say there should be a rule all teams wear throwbacks Thanksgiving weekend.
Does this mean the Texans would get to wear the Houston Oilers jerseys :D

Or perhaps the Dallas Texans jerseys?

Anyway, it's a shame the creamsicles aren't coming back, even for a day.
