According to reiss chat. I like the change up and the Uni's are nice.
Yeah, I saw that and the first thing I thought of was how happy italian pat patriot will be.
Chat with Mike Reiss today at noon - Reiss' Pieces - Boston.com
I love the fact they are having more use of the throwback jerseys for the 50th aniversary of the AFL, but how about celebrating that milestone by putting a few AFL players in HOF. Guys like Gino Cappelletti get hosed because he played in the AFL and not the NFL.
Supposedly going to be worn against original eight AFL teams this year, so Jets, Bills, Titans, and Broncos games we will see them wearing them.
Good to see them I am a throwback kinda guy...
I mean once or twice is fine but 1/4 of the season could cause them to loose the effect. This might be overdoing it.
Your right, it's way too much. However, I doubt the players really care as long as their in their lockers on time and ready to go.
I hate the throwback uniforms.
They remind me of losing.
I wish the throwbacks were more circa 1976-1978 than the 1960s.
Kind of lame they include the Titans. Unless the Titans wear their Oilers uniforms. Any word on that?
I miss the old Patriots logo. I've always disliked the current one. In my opinion, the old Patriots logo ranks up there with the Celtic leprechaun. What I never liked were the old Patriots jerseys that had red as the dominant color. Now if they could come up with a jersey that can update the old ones but have blue be the dominant color instead. I'm for that. The white background helmet is fine like the Chargers' white helmet.
I'll just sit over here quietly with the REAL throwback logo...
The Titans will be wearing the Oilers uniforms..
My guess we will be wearing it 5 times it will be 3 home , 2 road
Bills or jets..
agreed . . . . and will make them less special
Any occasion not to wear the current uniforms is a good occasion.
Look on the bright side of the throwbacks- at least they aren't the brown and yellow uniforms the Broncos will have to wear
Man, some of those old uniforms were really bad. The Pats' has held up much better by comparison.
the throwbacks make me wanna throw up lol they are ugly as sin lol
Wish they were from early 80's ftw.
It may be because I have a 2 year old, but the old logo looks like a training potty.
They're selling them on NFLshop. I might have to get myself a red Brady.
From what I understood, there would be two weekends where all the original 8 would be playing each other, and this is primarily when the throwbacls will be worn. However, I took a quick look at the schedule and did not see any weekend in which this occurs (feel free to doublecheck, I spent all of 5 minutes doing this). So I guess anything goes.
Goddam right. Put Cappelletti into Canton.
I don't care - it's still trippy, and predates PtP! Besides, if we're going to use scatalogical associations as an excuse, ol' Pat looks like he's taking a dump and has kept something as a toy :singing:
Being serious for a moment - I'm fascinated by throwbacks that look really antiquated, and this is as close as the Patriots could get to the effect. It confuses me that they couldn't, just once in my lifetime, go this route.
Also, I understand this logo was only used in the inaugural season, so there wouldn't be the strong "loser" associations.
You only have a 50th anniversary of anything once. Yes, the old unis (mostly the red shirt ones) do remind me too much of those losing years. Well, they weren't all losing years, but a lot of them were. My worst memory of those years was Chuck Fairbanks letting the team down late in 1978 by announcing he was leaving, and also Fairbanks' abuse of Jim Plunkett as a QB, sending in QB option plays when Jim was hurt. My all time Patriots goat is Fairbanks. But again, for a 50 year thing, wear the old unis a few times.
yes, i read it now too: great !
i hope expecially that Ne-Ten will be one of those games with Titans using Oilers unis
Maybe they can start using oil derricks in Tennessee. I don't know what for, but, oh, that's a home game for the Patriots. GO Pats!
September 14th. Bills vs. Patriots and Chargers vs. Raiders both on Monday Night Football confirmed for one date.
They have to have a second one per NFL rules(must wear jersey at least twice) so could be an away game against one of the teams.
Here's all eight jerseys at a press conference:
NFL will celebrate 50th anniversary season of American Football League
Funny that it's not the official 1960 uniform they are wearing- it's the 1963 division championship team uniform...no 1960 tricorn cap for them.
it seems that TEN Titans will wear Oilers unis 3 times during 2009 season too; let's see if 1 game of them will be against the Patriots
so....2 games with red unis and 2 with white unis
red ones at home and white ones on road
