Wow. I thought I was the only person around here that liked those.

While the current Bengals are a mess, the striped helmet will never go away, nor should it.

Gee, and here I thought Jungle Jim and I had a real chance at getting the Bengals to change their look to suit us. :rolleyes:

Easy call for me. This is the best action shot I could find, from 1968 when the Saints briefly (and inexplicably) reversed their helmet and pants stripes for 12 games (note one lineman still has the "normal" b-w-b stripes they went back to). Keeping the original stripes would be the only change to these. The darker gold really plays well with the black and white.

Couldn't agree more! Here are a few more shots:

For what's it's worth, I think the 1967 Saints-Rams games -- at both locations -- may be my all-time favorite uniform match-ups.

Should have never gotten rid of these:

Sure. I like the current unis, but there was nothing wrong with these and purple/green color scheme is unused anywhere else in the 4 major North American sports; they were unique.

I would say tie between these two and the Gretzky-Messier-Kurri era Oilers whites and blues.

The only way green and purple would've worked is if green was the primary and purple was the secondary. But I doubt most Bucks fans can't even look at the purple without thinking how that marked the era when the Bucks franchise jumped the shark.

The Hawks unis shown here: (some of the most underrated NBA uniforms, IMO)

great call on these... i even liked the black throwbacks too

for some reason they decided to ruin these by changing the white trim to red for a season or two before they went to the current jerseys

as much as i like them and i do break them out from time to time on my madden games just to wear something different, no way should they come back as a full time uniforms or even an alternate. take off the nostalgia colored glasses and they really do look like a Browns knock off you would see at walmart. Their best look clearly was this: bengals.jpg

shame that a decades worth of losing is attached to these they are far superior to what they wear now.

^ that was a good look, but I think it got even better in 97 when they toned down the pant and shoulder stripes and added the leaping tiger logo to the sleeves.

I don't want to see these make a comeback and I'm confident they never will, but it would be cool if they wore them as throwbacks at least once just so I can see the team wearing the old Browns' knockoffs. I somewhat remember the Bengals wearing them in 93 (or was it 94?), but I've grown up in the striped helmet era. I was kinda hoping the league would let them in the AFL throwback parade last year because they were an AFL team, albeit for only a couple seasons. I'm holding out hope that they'll wear them for their 50th anniversary in about 8 years.

I'm usually not a fan of throwbacks, but as a die-hard Pacers fan (I go back to the ABA days), I'd LOVE to see these again:

I don't have time at this point to look for a picture, but the Cubs Blue Road uniforms from the 80s should be the alternate uniform instead of what they use now.

I'm surprised these haven't shown up sooner in the thread. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the best NFL uniform ever...

What? The Hawks did not wear these immediately prior to the current jerseys (trim change or not). The jerseys in the picture are from the early-to-mid 90s. The Hawks had the Mutombo look (huge hawk on jersey) and then the white home/red away/yellow alt jerseys after that.
