    #50 Jersey

    Are they really retired? Or are they just not wearing them this season?

    I can't remember if it was on here or on Patriots Planet, but a while back someone posted an article from the team's website saying that they would no longer be wearing the silvers. No word yet on if they'll make a different one or do like the Bills and wear a full throwback as an alternate.

    I've heard rumors that Bob Kraft doesn't like it when the team wears red jerseys.

    Maybe they're limited to one alternate/throwback uni per season.

    Yes, they are, and they can only wear them for two games each year.

    Someone did photoshopped up a red alternate jersey, same style as the current uniforms. It looked pretty sweet.

    Meh...

    I actually detest that silver jersey. I'd rather they did a red version of the current jersey, or go for a black one like those you can find in the pro-shop. :cool:

    the red texans one is also cool (of course the chargers one is the best but i'm biased)

    They haven't worn them since 2007. Both Casale and Perillo said they weren't going to wear them last year, which was the final year of the NFL's 5-year mandatory uniform policy. This year the NFL allowed the AFL teams to wear an extra alternate (i.e. home and away throwbacks), although the Broncos are wearing their orange alternate as well.

    Never a fan of the silvers. Always thought they looked like dirty white uniforms. :nosmile:

    I have an authentic silver jersey. I'd be disappointed if the team no longer uses them.

    Yeah but that's different, because they're celebrating the 50th anniversary season for the 8 AFL teams. Usually it's only two games.

    I think they should steal the Steelers black and gold. It would make up for the Penguins stealing the Bruins colors years ago.

    Ugh... I never got why the Steelers went with the rounded numbers and shoulder patch. That was needless. If they wanted to stay classic, just keep the traditional squared numbers. They still look nice on any team. The Pats outlandish experiment with them ended mercifully before the SB run started. I just wish that the Pats would've dispensed with the side panel look on the white jersey and had a solid blue pants. I think that an "All Silver" look would've been sweet, too. But hey, that's just me.

    I remember that they wore them during that sad 28=10 loss to the Packers where they looked absolutely pathetic. Since then, as silly as it sounds I have disliked those unis immensely.
