    So I was thinking, over the past two years, seeing the Pats play in their alternative Red (and one time White) Jerseys has been great. I always felt like playing in an alternate jersey made it extra fun. I also think they are great jerseys to show off, I mean I know they don't bring back the "best" of memories but that's why we make new ones. Like the comeback against Buffalo on the first Monday Night football game of the season.

    The game against Detroit on Thanksgiving, was another great fun game to watch. I NEVER liked those gray jerseys, they were probably the worst alternative jersey ever invented, no point to them.

    I remembered the New York Jets had worn their alternative jerseys last year and they seemed to be well liked by the organization, except they decided not to wear them for the 2010 season.Don't know why.

    The Steelers are another team that wears those cool old school black and yellow uniforms, along with the Browns who wear the same type as the Steelers, almost every year.

    I am just curious to see how many people around here think they should be brought back for the 2011-12 season, maybe even longer, but let's take it one step at a time. :) VOTE!!!!

    Yep keep em, half the time I didn't even know they were wearing their silver jerseys. I like the 60's version better though with the red socks.

    yep, they better bring back BOTH the red throwbacks AND Wes Welker, because thats what I got and there are no other WR jerseys I would rather have.

    FUnny I was just thinking about this watching some highlight videos: The blue/white/silver unis from the past several years are starting to look pretty tired to me; I find myself really liking the red and white old school option more than I thought I would.

    ENOUGH already with the red/white throwback nonsense. I'd personally like to see the silver alternates make a return.

    Really? We all have our own taste but I never really heard anyone saying they liked the silver ones. I always though a red alternate would be cool but, I would rather just have pat the patriot.

    I've had enough of the 80's uniforms. It was neat the first few times but now it's run into the ground. I'd love to see one of the uniforms from 93-99 though. That would be cool to see a few times.

    So would I. Always loved those. They've got the colors of the current ones and the old-ish feel of the old ones. Perfect.

    I answered no - though I do not think they are terrible (you are essentially asking two questions there so I only answered the first - should they become the alternative jersey. I like them very much as jerseys but prefer them as our throwback uniform.

    Nope. Maybe I'm just imagining it but they always seem to play like crap in the old reds.

    at home it is ok the red ones

    As Roger Clemens once made famous, I think you are misremembering.

    The Pats won while wearing them in 2002.

    They were 2-1 wearing them in 2009 (win vs. BUF, vs. TEN, loss at MIA).

    They were 2-0 in 2010 (wins vs. MIN, @ DET).

    By my count, that's 5-1, far from crap.

    Even 5-2 is really good if you include the white version of the throwbacks they lost in while playing at Denver in 2009.

    was never a fan of the new uniforms, too much dallas cowboy wanna be silver blue cheese, to gaudy. the red and white are more classic much better imo.
    i wish they kept the update simple:cool: instead of trying to be trendy

    I think they have "recent" losses to Miami, Denver, and Indy in them and that's why I don't like them. The record may be better, but their record is so good overall it should be, so the big losses are standing out to me.

    I like the red/white throwbacks as the teams alternate. Would kind of like to see them use the red pants with the white jersey.

    I've always liked the Pat Patriot uniforms. When they first changed to the Flying Elvis in '93 I really didn't like it. It took me a long time to get used to Flying Elvis and new uniforms. Not to mention the tweaks they kept making until they settled on the navy blue jerseys in 2000.

    I'm fine seeing the old Pat Patriot uniforms twice a year.

    Never did like the silver jerseys; they look OK in person but they look awful on TV, (although they don't look bad in Madden).

    The 2009 version was not an alternate, rather a commemorative uniform worn in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the AFL. It was a one-season thing with teams having approved uniforms for designated games (like those NYJ ones mentioned in the original post). The ones we wore this season have replaced the silvers as our alternate jersey and can be worn two times a season. I believe they will keep that uniform as an alternate option for the near future. Usually in the summer, they leak what two games the third jerseys will be worn for.

    They should wear the white pat the patriot with red pants for one of the two alternate jersey games.

    THIS is what the alternate uniform should be, a nice combination of the new uniforms and the throwbacks. I had Fraser Davidson put my ideas to paper, pretty awesome, eh? Anyway, I sent it to Robert Kraft and it was returned, apparently the Patriots don't accept ANY outside ideas.

    Sorry, but I'd return it too. Looks like it was designed for Arena League or Roller Derby. The Patriots wearing red jerseys is just wrong. :bricks:
