NFL Pro Bowl Jersey Colors

heh, I remember in the 80s and early 90s the NFC always wore blue with white pants, and the AFC always wore white with red pants. then there was a few years they wore that assymetrical Apex (?) design (AFC: red/white, NFC: blue/white), and after that, the AFC wore red while the NFC had white (both teams had white pants...and these were IIRC also the first pro bowl jerseys to have a player's team logo on it). Early 2000s, the short-lived gradients (AFC-red into white, red pants; NFC-white into blue, white pants) and after those, there were the sets with a lot of piping and Broncos-ish pants with either the NFC N or AFC A on the stripe as an outline. NFC wore all blue with red piping and white pant stripes, while the AFC wore all white with blue piping and red pant stripes. Heh, I forgot what the NFC wore last year, though I definitely remember the AFC wore red with sublimated stars a la the Magic and white pants (with an NFL first: the Pro Bowl logo was placed under the back numbers).

In short, I dunno :D

Its switched every two years. In fact, the ENTIRE uni design is changed every two years. I went to the Pro Bowl in 01 and 02 and both teams wore the Fade style uniforms and both years the AFC had the top of their unis Red and the NFC had the bottoms blue.

Only difference, the patch.

The last two years the AFC wore Red tops, so for the next two years the NFC will get to don the Blue tops. Cant wait to see my boys in blue in person again this season.

traditionally the nfc has always worn blue based uniforms, the afc has always worn red based unis. i think this goes back to the very first afc-nfc pro bowl in 1971.

Man, those fade uniforms make it look like the equipment manager screwed up and washed the white jerseys with the colored pants, and the colors ran!! :blink:

Oh boy, just check out the shoes on that pic... :shocked:

Whaddya mean? Neither person in that picture is even wearing...

...oh, sorry, didn't see the football players.

Of the players, there are three wearing shoes (Woodson, Adams & J.Lewis) and three wearing sandals (Ogden, R.Lewis & Sharpe), I think he assumed that the ones wearing sandals were actually wearing shoes.

Ok, irrelevant to the uniform discussion...

But does that girl on the right look underage to anyone else? That and it looks like she's about 2-seconds away from a skirt-based "wardrobe malfunction."

(Well, maybe the last part's uni-based, sort of.)

And now back to our regularly scheduled discussion...

Man i'm with Blue Falcon on the 02 pro bowl uni's those are horrible

I think they should have both teams wearing colors(AFC red NFC Blue) And don't have the individual helmates it must be REAL confusing for a QB with them like that.( I might do a nfc/afc concept soon so figured i'd say that now, if anyone cares)

As a design, the 2001/2002 PB uniforms don't look very flattering, especially with the white pants, but as a jersey collector I love this style. The fade is rarely seen in NFL jerseys and I just love those patches.

I also like the 2003 style very much with the applied stars to it. i have no idea what that substance is. it looks like nail polish.
