By color, who has the best stand-alone football jersey?

Recommended Posts

I think this topic has the potential to be really fun. To be specific, I'm asking only for the best football jersey, not the best uniform, as uniforms often mismatch colors. I am hoping to start off with current jerseys, though I'm sure this thread will eventually veer off to past jerseys too.

My thoughts:

RED: FSU Seminoles

ORANGE: Texas Longhorns

YELLOW: WVU Mountaineers

GREEN: Tulane Green Wave*

LIGHT BLUE: Tennessee Titans

BLUE: Buffalo Bills

NAVY BLUE: BYU Cougars

PURPLE: Minnesota Vikings throwback**

BLACK: Pittsburgh Steelers throwback**

WHITE: Houston Texans

OTHER: Cleveland Browns

*not a homer pick. I promise!

**though they are throwbacks, they are a part of the current rotation of jerseys worn. Thus, they are applicable.

Agree? Disagree? Make your own list. I'd love to see your answers!

I like the idea!

Here's mine -

Red: Kansas City Chiefs

Orange: Clemson Tigers

Yellow: West Virginia Mountaineers

Green: Saskatchewan Roughriders throwback

Light Blue: North Carolina Tar Heels

Blue: Winnipeg Blue Bombers throwback (90's one, I believe. The one with the vegas gold accents rather than the yellow)

Navy: Ole Miss Rebels

Purple: Minnesota Vikings throwback

Black: Northwestern Wildcats

White: New York Giants

Maroon: Washington Redskins

Brown: Cleveland Browns

Teal/Aqua: Miami Dolphins

Note: I believe both the Riders' and Bombers' throwbacks are still part of thier rotation. Correct me if I'm wrong, I haven't been as up to date with the CFL as I'd have liked to be this year.

Not sure about these 2. How are those Bucs jerseys yellow? I'm not sure if I'd put the Raiders under OTHER since their 2 jerseys are black and white. Do you mind elaborating?

Ooh, oooh--me, me!!!

RED - Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Like y'all didn't see that coming.

RED (MAROON/CRIMSON/GARNET/WHATEVER): Florida State Seminoles. Not even close.

ORANGE - Bowling Green Falcons. Aside from being trimmed with brown and those cool numbers, that's probably the one jersey that makes that Adidas template look good.

YELLOW - I can only think of one team that wears one prominently, and actually makes a helluva fashion jersey: West Virginia Mountaineers.

GREEN - tough one, but I'm going with the Ohio Bobcats here.

TEAL - the 1998-2009 Jacksonville Jaguars. Kinda by default in this category...but those were also my favorite jerseys in all of football during their existence.

BLUE (ROYAL): Before they changed them, I'd have said Tulsa Golden Hurricane. Now, think I'll go with the Florida Gators.

BLUE (NAVY) - Connecticut Huskies. No contest in my mind.

BLUE (BABY/LIGHT/WHATEVER) - I don't like none of them. There, how about that?

PURPLE - Baltimore Ravens.

BLACK - the previous version of the Army Black Knights would've won it for me. Now...I really can't call it.

1999 throwbacks

Sorry if you don't accept throwbacks as a choice. They were the only yellow NFL jerseys I could think of.

The Raiders are a total mistake. It was supposed to be silver but...they don't have a silver jersey :rolleyes:

B ) The Bucs throwback uniform was orange, never yellow.
