    I like the new uniforms, I'd prefer them to just wear them all the time.

    Why? Because it's 2006, not 1986. The red uniforms show an era of losing. And, last time I checked, it was the British REDcoats wearing the red, not the American PATRIOTS.

    personally, and you probably know it allready, i really LOVE the throwbacks and i would like to see the Pats dressing them once a year regularly.

    now it is a long time (too much) that we are not using them (last time was in DET @ thksgiving game...)

    They could be dressed in the Mean Machine's uniforms for all I care, as long as they win the division and get a first round bye.

    Besides, those throwbacks only throw back as far as the 1980's (and, in fact, they're poor copies). If nostalgia is what they're going for, that ain't it. Throw back to the 1960's, or even better, throw back to the Chuck Fairbanks-era, and then we can talk.

    Very true. The red jerseys were a mistake from the beginning and it's sort of appropriate that Pat Patriot was a cartoon. But I remember in '93 when Orthwein made the change to blue and Flying Elvis. Some idiot hired a plane to fly a banner over the stadium that said, "We want wins. Not blue shirts and crap logo." How times have changed.

    they should only wear the silver jerseys for night games. They dont look good with the sun hitting them. The Broncos Pats game would be a good game for botyh teams to wear throwbacks.

    The most worthwhile tradition built by the Patriots has come quite recently - in blue and silver.

    If you're looking for deep tradition and a long history, that's definitely more Steelers/Packers/Bears/etc. It took awhile to get the ball rolling, but the Pats will be wearing their current uniforms 20 years down the road to represent this amazing era. I just don't see the purpose in pushing aside these glory days in favor of times when the Pats were the laughingstock of the NFL.

    Leave the past in the past. It's Brady and Plummer at the helm, not Elway and Grogan. This whole emotional attachment thing really bugged me when the whiners emerged from the woodwork after the depature of Adam and Willie.

    Just a question but do teams ever have a 2nd alternative uniform?

    Like besides the basic 2 and an alternate?

    i would like to see a newer uniform with more red in it personally.

    Yes the Pats have decided not to use the silver Jersy anymore and no plans for a red Jersey or The old throwbacks Johnathan does not like the old ones or Red jerseys.

    Damnit I want the old 'solid-look' alternative uni back. Dark navy pants with the navy jersey were badass. :D

    Yeah, and they got crushed both times. Denver and Green Bay.
    I'll pass on the blue on blue.
