Jezus_Ghoti Posted January 9, 2004 Share Posted January 9, 2004 I have been thinking about this for a few days. It started when I realized that the Atlanta Falcons' uniforms seem to be the first uniforms designed specifically for the new culture of mixing and matching jerseys and pants in the NFL. Practically all the teams do it now, as you have all seen. I am convinced that, when designing their new uniforms, the Falcons organization planned on mixing and matching as much as possible (as they have done). The Falcons wear their black jerseys with both white and black pants. They also wear their white jerseys with both black and white pants. They have only worn their red alternates with white pants so far, but Madden 2004 gives you the option of wearing them with the black pants and it can only be a matter of time before they do that as well.My question is this: I know there is a limit to the # of jerseys an NFL team can have (my understanding is that teams are limited to a home, road, alternate and some get to add a Thanksgiving throwback to those core 3). Is there any limit to the # of different varieties of pants a team can have? I know for a fact that the Falcons wore 3 this year: white with red stripe, white with black stripe (worn only with the red alternate jerseys) and black with red stripe. Conceivably, if 3 different colors of pants are allowed, a team could wear a different uni combo for over half the games of the season. For example:Miami Dolphins(jersey / pants)teal on whiteteal on tealteal on orangewhite on tealwhite on whitewhite on orangeorange on white*orange on teal*orange on orange**orange jersey could only be worn 2 times, so hopefullt they wouldn't select orange on orange for one of those 2thanksgiving throwbackAm I wrong somehow, or is this possible?
