Another garbage post I would love if the mods can delete because of the mobile system bugs.

That uniform fits the bland, wordmark helmet IMO. 

 

However, I think the 1981 set is beautiful and much more evocative of a bengal tiger theme.

At this point, looking at the 1981 jerseys, a best case scenario would be make the shoulder caps(let's not kid ourselves, they're not sleeves) tiger pattern and the numbers on the shoulder. 

 

Keep the rest the same and you'll have a fantastic modern Bengals jersey.

Roy Green, best known as a prolific WR who scored touchdowns by the barrel load for the St. Louis/Phoenix Cardinals in the 80s, was briefly a Philadelphia Eagle in the early 90s

Didn't he actually have some good seasons in Houston, though?

Hard to argue the iconic nature of the 1981 unis, they were cutting edge at the time they were unveiled.  That said, while I think the original uniforms were bland and definitely similar to the Cleveland Browns, I just dig that original helmet with that simple black font outlined in white.  "BENGALS".  I even bought a mini helmet of that version and I'm not even a Bengals fan. 

 

But there's no turning back, the tiger stripe helmets are awesome and has withstood the test of time.  

It's kind of cool how simple that helmet is, but also kind of lame once you realize the myriad design possibilities that the name "Bengals" gives you. One of the initial helmets Paul Brown was given to look at was similar to what the team adopted in '81; kinda sad he went so plain.

Wearing a Houston Oiler uniform is never a wrong uniform no matter how unusual it is to see them in one.

He did but he's a Charger.  I think of him more a Bengal than an Oiler.

Montana and Favre aren't as wrong as the others. Till this January Montana was still the last QB to win a playoff game for the Chiefs.

The Kings is really wrong! I do own a Avs one, but that is also wrong!

Also a "Right team, wrong uniform" entry: Drew Bledsoe, who was replaced by you-know-who, spent two seasons in the Pats' current look. (Hard to believe that look has been in use for 15+ years now.... it is a modern classic.)
