I don't know if that is new, but I wouldn't read too much into it. When I was about 5, I had a pair of Baltimore Colts Super Bowl Champions pajamas (yeah, I'm that old) that had a picture of a blue helmet. Needless to say, the real helmet hasn't changed in the interim.

The Colts seem to have a vested interest in preserving their uniform heritage (sock stripes aside).

Yeah, except for when they decided to sport those horrid blue pants during the Harbaugh era.

Those were awful. I hope they never decide to "throwback" to that era ever again. Man, I'm also glad they got rid of the blue facemask. Just a bad idea.

Ok, I'll admit I'm one of maybe..... oh, 5 fans out there that actually liked the blue pants. (yes, I know GASP!)

That was a while ago. I was thinking more recently, when they went back to the great facemasks and (supposedly) a more traditional shade of blue.

I'm with the others.

Their uniforms and logo are too dated, at least throw some variety into it.

I'm not big into change for alot of my favorite teams, for example I wish the Giants hadn't gone back to the NY and like the old Bulls pimary logo better, but with alot of other teams I like to see change.

I hate how everyone is like, oh it's so historic, we can't touch it or add anything.

Well the NHL f'ed that up with RBK Edge, so now nothing is sacred.

No reason to touch it or add anything - and not because they're historic, but because they're PERFECT.

Why mess with perfection? The look is timeless. What possibly could they add that would "modernize" it, yet still look cool 20 years from now? Absolutely NOTHING.

I don't think the Colts would just put that out in the open if they were going to switch helmets. I think the only thing they need to do with their uniforms is put two stripes on the helmet to match the rest of the uniform. The blue facemask (maybe even white) and striped socks would be nice too.

I'd actually like to see one stripe on the pant to match the helmet but keep the jersey with 2 stripes.

No blue pants, no blue helmet.

More traditional?

Well, since the PANTONE color they went with wasn't added to the PANTONE Matching System palette until 1991, I would say no.

Well Lep, you know how accurate those 70's era Sears PJ's were. But you are right though, I still have beer glasses in the same style, with a blue helmet.

Or are you really old and had PJ's with the blue helmet with the horse shoes on the back? :D

Only in your opinion.

Personally, I hate the Colts' look. One of the first teams I would screw with, if they gave me the chance.

(Mmmwwhaaaahhhh-hah-hah!)

I like them, as well.
