    I completely agree. We have the most classic uniforms in the league. If I was going to throw back to something it would be the different color of blue that we wore in the 70's.

    The Bills did, they wore the same helmets but replaced the current logo with throwback since the helmet color didn't change. Bears did it to by removing the C for theirs.

    This ruling makes absolutely no sense. The committee does know that the helmets aren't the same ones used from the 1960's, right?

    So are they going to roll out with the old solid star on the silver helmet? Not gonna lie, I wouldn't mind us permanently wearing the white helmet but with the current star it would work with the current uniforms. The white helmet looks amazing.

    Is the NFL so cheap they can’t provide the players the exact same helmet for both?

    Anyways, I don’t really care, i think the throwbacks are hideous. All this talk of unis is lame. Has no bearing on the outcome of games.

    I agree. I actually love the cowboy throwbacks with the solid stars against the white helmets

    I've already commented on this but I feel sorry for fans who are attending a game where their team is wearing throwbacks especially the helmets. It's like watching a college or arena league team. If I'm attending a game I want my team to look like my team. How sad it must be for fans in Denver or Pittsburgh to attend a game where the Broncos and Steelers are wearing those HIDEOUS throwbacks. I wish the league would put an end to teams wearing throwbacks.

    I would hope the multiple games where teams wear throwbacks is ridiculous. I remember seeing the Steelers in those hideous prison like throwbacks 2-3 times one year. I kept asking myself why?

    He was harping on the fact that the Riddell helmet is not being made anymore but it looks like the company discontinued it because it performed poorly in a test conducted by VT. The new helmets you see out there were rated as 5 star but the SVR-4 rated as 1 star. Not sure why he's so fixated on it. You can't counter their safety argument by advocating for an inherently less safe model of helmet.

    I'm sort of shocked that they even allow that helmet out there after Riddell urged players to use something else quit making it.

    This quote cracked me up.

    When I read it I was just thinking that this guy just gave himself away. He's clearly a Jacksonville employee because they're probably the only team desperate enough to charge players for the helmet if they want to keep it.


    I can understand that they want the helmet to be broken in and fit correctly but it just seems a bit odd that they would emphasize the fit while continuing to allow huge bundles of dreadlocks.

    The conspiracist in me is curious if they are doing it because they don't want to have a bunch of 1-time use helmets sitting around just waiting for someone to come and ask to test them to see how much integrity may be lost after a single game.

    I was thinking Jacksonville to for no throwbacks and the 5 day curing process for the paint. ;)

    The first time I saw the Broncos in their throwbacks I didn't even know it was the Broncos. Thought I tuned in an NFL Europe game.

    I forgot about those. They could have been worse had they put a logo of a wedge cut of cheese on their helmet. You know a throwback uniform is ugly when they have lists ranking the ugliest. The list below has the 1934 Steelers throwbacks as the ugliest followed by the 32 Eagles throwbacks and the Packers 1929 throwbacks that you posted. They have the 1960-62 Broncos throwbacks ranked 4th. I would have ranked them higher seeing they're the most modern uniforms in the top 6. The Broncos throwbacks would have been a hideous design back in the early 20's. The Jets 1960's throwbacks were ranked 7th but they looked pretty good in the pic that was posted.

    Why don't we just go with the one we used before I mean it fits the silver helmet just saying you know.
