    According to espn.com Dallas, the cowboys will be wearing their blue road uniforms at gilette on Sunday. Does this mean the pats will be wearing their road whites? This is weird because I always thought the HOME team chose which uniforms to wear and the road team has to choose opposite.

    Dallas don't like wearing the blue uni (superstition) so maybe BB is just messing with them and opted for the White unis?

    Could the Pats be wearing the retro white jerseys?

    Yes, home team does have the choice. We'll have to wait and see if the report is accurate, and if so why.

    If anything white uniforms would help players stay slightly cooler, maybe that's the thinking.

    Predicted 65 degrees for the daily high, likely lower than that at 4:15 kickoff... that's not exactly a sauna!

    Isn't it pretty standard to wear the white uniforms once a year at home?

    Helps with jersey sales.

    I know, but for the big guys on the d-line they're sweating buckets even at that temperature.

    This is what happened the last time the Cowboys came to Foxboro in 2003 (Parcells).

    *****Only, that year, the Patriots wore the SHINY SILVER (not white) unis!!!!

    I live in the heart of Cowboy country and there is a longstanding superstition that Road Darks are bad luck for the Cowboys. I just told the guy over the wall from me at work about this and he's already cursing BB out. I just laughed.

    This was my first thought as well.

    patriots have been sluggish at home at times with the blue uniforms. I don't like the silver streak and think the elvis is too elongated myself.

    Anyway, maybe he's doing it to change things up or to punish the players, although I don't see how it would really be punishment.

    White at home is fine. Those silver jerseys that look like dirty laundry on TV need to be left in the hamper.

    Parcells' Giants used to wear white at home when Dallas came to town. Other than that, the Giants *never* wore white at home.

    Definitely a mind game.

    It's actually suprising that few teams do it. If you are used to players in white, it's feasible blue would have some distraction.

    Ofcourse, if everyone made them wear blue, it wouldn't be a distraction.

    I've also never liked the "alternative silver" uniforms. I actually prefer our "road" whites to our "home" blues. I also like the throw backs.

    I'd like to see them break out the retro whites with the red pants.

    I could support that too.

    That would actually look pretty sharp, what with the blue & bluish-silver (state-police blue) pants versus the white and red.
