    I grow weary of every one venting, over a game at Miami, that was probably the swan song for the Miami Defense before they tear it apart and start to rebuild. It has starters who are 39, 37, 34, 34, 32, 30.

    Changing the subject.

    What Team do you think has the he best uniform in the NFL ?
    What Team do you think has the WORST uniform ?

    I will allow any year's version of their uniform, even if not used currently.

    My nominee for BEST of all time is:
    San Diego Chargers Blue and Gold with gold lightening bolts on white helmet.:rocker:

    My nominee for WORST of all time is:
    Bengals Orange tiger stripe Black shirts. I actually think the helmet is not too bad.:bricks:

    Buffalo's current uniforms are the most Blah. I used to like their Blue of the '60s with the "buffalo nickle" helmet.

    Your nominees?:singing:

    For the best, I really liked the Rams before they changed from yellow and blue to gold and darker blue. I like the Jets now with the green jerseys, and of course, the Pats old unis with the red jerseys and Pat Patriot.

    For worst, I'd have to say the old Bucs orange/yellow, and Seattle's new unis are pretty horrible I think.

    You're right, San Diego's powder blues are pretty sweet too.

    I absolutely love the Chargers' powder blue throwbacks. I'm one of the few who like the Bengals' look, too. I liked the SF unis in the Montana-era, but hate today's look. I dig the Cowboys' throwbacks, and their old doublestar jerseys as well. I like our unis, but would like to see the red throwbacks as an alternate. Or, the "new" red concept I came up with

    I've always liked the Steelers uni's. Simple and unique.

    The worst is a toss up between the old Tampa uniforms and the Broncos current uniform.

    The worst uniform in the NFL today is hands down the Browns Away. All white with Orange? That is at best apawling.

    Hate to admit it, but the Colt's blue uni is awsome. I think that is the best today.
    Other favs: Packer Green / Steeler Black

    This is blasphemy, but I really like the Jets current uniforms. I'm also a fan of Buffalo's throwback uni's.

    On the flip side, I've always thought the Baltimore Ravens had some of the ugliest threads in the league. I'm also not that big a fan of Buffalo's new uniforms, they look a lot like Tennessee's - so I guess I don't really care for either team's. Seattle's seaweed green has actually grown on me (thought they were goofy looking at first).

    Good topic.

    I agree with both of those. For others, the original Tampa Bay uniform was really bad and the Cards all-red is awful. The helmet I disliked the most was the Houston Oilers with that oil derrick on it. What did that have to do with football?

    What does the Flying Elvis have to do with football?
    Or the Eagle?
    Or the Dallas Star?
    Or NY?
    Or Jets?
    Or GB
    Or the colour Orange?
    Or a Hawk?
    Or a Cardinal?
    Or "49ers"?

    Good point. I guess I never liked the inference of rich Texas oilmen that the derrick gave. Now you're going to say a lot of teams wouldn't be here without rich men. True too. Maybe I don't like Texas.

    Hah! Well, regardless of how you feel about Texas, I like the Texans helmet logo. Not crazy about their colors, but that helmet is pretty cool I think.

    I actually liked the the Oilers helmet, but not the rest. It certainly identified with the area from which the Team came. Just like the Steelers from Pittsburgh. The Detroit Pistons are another good name for a team representing Auto city.

    Just what is the significance of the Cardinals when the bird is not present in Arizona or the Lakers from the LA dessert or the Utah Jazz. All those clubs should have changed their names when they moved.

    Do any of you remember the original Denver Broncos uniforms with the vertical striped socks. Pugh!! I'm surprised that so many hated the tangerine orange colors of Tampa Bay. The current ones are just "pewter"-id, IMO.

    I didn't associate "Oilers" with rich Texas oilmen any mor ethan I associated "Steelers" with Andrew Carnegie but rather tough guys sweating in front of a blast furnace. I associated "Oilers" with tough oil worker roustabouts, driving their gun rack pickups to the drilling rig, sweating hard, and punching holes in the ground.

    Honestly, I think the Chargers powder blues are the most pathetic attempt at a uniform I've ever seen.

    great question

    my top 10
    1. The Bears. so classic just a thing of beauty
    2. the Chargers. Baby blues that is
    3. Bills Throwbacks. I wish they would just wear them all the time
    4. The Jets. The white jerserys are so nice
    5. Pats throwbacks. I like the ones now but looking back,I wish they never changed
    6. The Colts. The grey facemask is so much nicer than the blue
    7. The Steelers. Black jerseys, just mean lookin
    8. The Raiders. The silver and black is a thing of beauty
    9. The Cheifs. Whats not to like


    and the one pick that I think people will hate....
    10. The Cardnals. The old ones of course not the updated ones, I really think the older white ones were very nice.

    Id be prowed to wear any of those teams jerserys

    Best uniforms:

    BEARS show good restraint with the use of orange and lots of black

    49ER red and gold helmet was cool

    JAGUARS powder blue with black

    RAIDERS silver and black is a classic.

    I like the PATRIOTS uniforms, solid.


    Worst uniforms:

    original TAMPON BAY uniform was worst use of orange ever seen in North America.

    as much as they try to change, the BENGALS get worse and worse each year.

    I don't get what all the fuss is over that uniform either. Powder blue is not a "tough" look suitable for football. Same goes for the Bucs' old orange jersey.

    Among my favorites:

    Bears
    Patriots
    Browns -- brown jersey/orange pants combo
    Redskins -- maroon jersey/yellow pants combo
    Saints
