Maybe we can get a throwback Super Bowl? Would never happen...but it'd be fun to see:

The 49ers actually wore throwbacks in the Super Bowl, but I doubt we ever see another throwback in the big game ever again. The league wouldn't allow it. Their uniform rules are more stringent than ever.

Might see throwbacks permitted in Super Bowl LIV. That would be the NFL's 100th anniversary season.

Not only are throwbacks/alternate uniforms a terrible decision for the Super Bowl. It's the most important game of the season, thus you should be wearing your finest.

In fact, primary jerseys should ALWAYS be worn during the postseason, no matter what the sport. Remember the Nets wearing throwbacks in the NBA Finals several years back? How awful and tacky was that!?

The only time I'm with a tan wearing an alternate in the playoffs is if they already plan on making it the primary in the next season. I would have been fine with the Broncos wearing orange this season and there are a few examples of this happening in the NHL. The heat are also an exception but that's because they alternated between the red and black after each loss.

That road uniform on Irving Fryer is an absolutely gorgeous look . . thumbsup.gif . . I so liked it when NE went to red pants in the very late 70s, 'twas a long time coming I thought at the time. I'd love to see NE play in those, but not their retro home-red jerseys with white pants.

Regarding the Giants, when they first brought back their 1961 (I believe?) white away jerseys with the all-red trim in 2005 I totally gasped at them. They've now totally grown on me and they seem to give them an old-time NFL look which so compliments their identity.

I'm in the minority on the NYG pants too ... I like the gray pants, both sets. If they went to white pants and home, they'd just look look your average 'Joe' football team ...

That's Kent Hull, the Bills all-time great center whom we lost to liver disease just a few months back :(

R.I.P.

Good eye on your part, I'd of never noticed that myself.

Nope.

That version is the "regional" logo or some such. The stadium-less version is the primary logo, and that's the one that'll be on the patch.

But look at the "Pro Line" Giants and Patriots jerseys they are selling on NFLshop.com . They have the regional logo in the background.

Worst example: 2003 NJ Nets.

the 2003 NBA Finals Game 3. I loved watching them play in their throwbacks that day! Too bad they lost.
