oct 9th the pats will wear the throwbacks from 85, .. good game to pick....
I was expecting a 'smaller' game! Not so high profile!
I do like the throwbacks
Sweet. I love the throwbacks.
Nice. Like that old school look.
the Reds are from 1985 I thought it was earlier?
In 2009 they were from the '63 season for the 50th anniversary, any other time they are from '85.
I know I'm in the vast minority but I don't like when they wear the throwbacks. I like them and have fond memories of them.....but not enough fond memories. The best days of this franchise have come in the Flying Elvis era. I've been a fan since I was 7 in 75 but whenever I see them in the old uniforms I have this fear they'll revert to 1991.
Same here, they represent nothing but sucking to me. I think every one should be hunted down and set fire to.
Agreed. And maybe it's just me, but the team doesn't look as fast in red and white as it does in navy and silver. I think we've beaten New Jersey a lot more in the modern unis than wearing red.
I love the throwbacks and I know so many people associate them with loosing, but remember that Marc Wilson wont be throwing the ball on Oct 9
I don't know: when I see them all I think is
SAM..... BAM..... CUNNINGHAM!!! TD!.
That year ended badly.
remember, in China and to ppl of Chinese origins RED represents Good Luck
maybe it will rub off on our boys
Sweet!! I prefer the '63 ones but either is great. I assume this means they are going to wear them once a year from now on. Silver alternates were so lame.
Well the defense may remind you of the 91 defense the way its going so the throwbacks may fit well the bill on the defensive side
I like that years but my favorite is from the 76 season with the small stripe on the sleeve and the smaller Pat on the helmet.
The only reason I support the Pats is because of the red uniforms. To explain. I watched my first NFL game on UK TV back in around 1982. A team in red (Pats) were playing a team in white (no idea who). Red was my favourite colour at the time so I decided to cheer the team in red. 29 years later I'm still cheering for them. I therefore have an emotional attachment to the red uniforms. That said I prefer the current colours and do agree with the argument that the red uniform brings back memories of sucking.
Once a Redcoat, always a Redcoat as we say here in New England
new uniforms are better
Does that mean that Patrick Chung will have a career game?
I think Grogan and one of most underated receivers in history Stanley Morgan.
85 ... Eighty Five ? Looks like we will develop a case of alligator arms and prime-time jitters ! We're screwed !
I can't wait to see them. Really the only uni's I didn't like where the silver top alternates. Anything but those!
I cannot wait for that game!! I absolutely love the old unies! Go Pats!
For whatever reason I prefer the white alternative jersey to the red ones.
love the throwbacks
They should do one road throwback game too. I like the red better but the white is pretty sweet too.
Will the Jets be wearing their ghastly throwbacks too?
Won't matter..Sanchise will throw 3 int's and bart scott will cry
