    I for one would like to see the Patriots change the alternate uniform from silver to red. The silver looks great in person, but loses something in the translation to television. It actually comes off looking white. The red shirt will be along the lines of the current uniform and not a throwback. This change would help bridge the gap between the old Patriot uniforms (which I love, but agree are outdated) and the new.

    I know there are far more pressing issues to discuss, like our depth at LB but I thought I throw that out there and get some thoughts.

    Sweet picture. That uniform is better looking than all three current schemes (Blue, Silver and White)!

    Ease up dude….I’ve been a season ticket holder since you were probably in diapers. Take it easy and let the posts come in. You can always skip over and go to the next.

    Thanks for the pic though!

    The topic of a red alternate jerseys has been beaten to death in multiple threads in the forum. Enough is enough.

    LOL... Alright, I guess with almost 4,000 posts you’ve earned your say.

    Just hoping Robert or Jonathon check this board out as they look sweet!

    Another thing I might add to the discussion however, is that I have not 1 red item in my entire wardrobe. Not even 1 red t-shirt. Because I hate red? No, because I do my own laundry. I don't care to separate and I don't care to have pink socks. The red shirts look good, but I would hate to see red Pats t-shirts flooding the market.

    As a throwback is enough.

    The Patriots marketing team is aware that you do not separate your laundry. That is why they got rid of the red items to begin with. The rest of the world is a bit slow in removing the color from their product lines, alas.

    I think that this looks completely awesome and would LOVE to see them use it. I know it's a photoshop, but they aught to take notes. That is sick. Bravo

    That was MichiganDave's work, so he deserves all the credit.

    (Although I still hate the color scheme. :D)

    Well daps to him. That's good work. Yeah I can see how it would be a 'love it' or 'hate it' kind of Uni, much like the Silver ones.

    Oh that they would wear the throwbacks once a year. They've only been worn once - at Detroit on Thanksgiving four years ago. Since 2003 the only alternates to have been worn are the Gray ones.
    Right now, I think teams are only allowed one alternate, and must announce before the start of the season for which game(s) they will be worn (and not all teams have them). So it's either Gray or Red.
    I've got mixed feelings. For me the classic red jerseys with a white helmet and the old Pat Patriot will always be the uni of the team I fell in love with. The old logo and the stars and stripes font still look better then Elvis. But they were the uni of an underachieving team, and I can recognise why New Englanders would resent a team of Minutemen wearing "our" (British) colors.
    Throwbacks look dumb unless both teams are wearing them. So they should either be left for the three Thanksgiving games (though Detroit wore their awful black jerseys last year), or on a league-designated Throwback weekend (Thanksgiving would again seem to be the best weekend).
    On the other hand, the Gray unis are just awful. Dull, dull, dull. And I really wouldn't want to be trying to pick out a receiver on a November afternoon if he was wearing a jersey the same color as the sky. So, on balance, yes, I'd also like to see a red alternate - not a throwback. MichiganDave's design is superb. It tips a hat to our heritage without being completely retro (though I'd like to see how it looked with blue and white shoulder stripes instead of the solid white).

    Here is one I put together in the other uniform thread. A combo of past/present.

    Red never made sense to me. Our name is the Patriots. The colonial army wore blue. The British wore red.

    I love our current uniforms. I'd say they've been pretty effective as well.

    If anything, I wouldn't mind having a red alternate uniform that we would wear for one game a year. And I like the idea of it being a red version of our modern uniform instead of one of our past uniforms.

    I'd like to see them wear the throwback road jersey instead of the throwback home.
