"We even have some of the details and jerseys Nike hasn't revealed just yet. There are a lot of great alternate uniforms this year that people are going to love. There are some big surprises that are coming with helmets and things like that, that people don't know about. I can't wait until they see it in the game."

Not necessarily a bad look, but definitely not a "Bears" look. If true, this is terrible. They need only white and navy blue pants.

Haha just commented about that in the nfl 2013 thread. It deserves it's own though. Maybe Nike does some crazy throwback helmets??

My thoughts exactly. I liked orange pants for the Broncos and Browns, but it just doesn't seem right for da Bears

Welp, if they already came out with an orange jersey and that awful fauxback, they may as well do the orange pants as well.

That is just awful. In so many ways.

Plus, why the hell can't they get the shoulder numbers right? They're not even using the proper number style.

I bet it would look better with the Blue jersey? For their away jersey I like the all white scheme the best.

As much as I'm for the traditional look, I wouldn't mind the Packers having alt green pants for a game to see if I like it. It looks good on the Eskimos. Probably works better w/ white jerseys.

I say this as a lifelong Packers fan, and now, stockholder:

NO.

Remember when EA Sports showed Auburn wearing navy blue pants in last year's game?

Just a note to make.

It doesn't look terrible--didn't the Illini wear orange pants for a while?--but it doesn't look like the Bears. I wish I had confidence that the actual Bears weren't going to wear these, but they've already crapped on their brand equity with in-game fashion jerseys, so who's to say.

As long as they don't go all-orange, I'll survive.

Best news. I'm praying for black pants for the Falcons.

My thoughts exactly--well, except the wondering about Illinois part--it's not a bad look at all but the Bears already have a look that can't really be improved upon. (Their home uniform is flawless.) This seems to be a case of adding something just because you can. That's fine in a video game, let's just hope it doesn't become reality.

I'm gonna assume this is just a Madden thing and that the Bears don't actually have orange pants. This wouldn't be a bad look for the Illini though.

They've worn orange pants throughout the years and actually did quite a bit this past year, but they've always been paired with an orange helmet. The Bears don't need orange pants at all. Especially now that they're finally ditching the orange jerseys. Blue/white at home and white/blue on the road is perfect. I even like the all white look for a game or two on the road, but orange should never be the main color on a Bears uniform.
