    This may be sacrilege, but I hate the throwbacks. To me they make the players appear small and weak.

    I don't mind one game but not more than one. So, count me in as those who dislike throwbacks.

    Count me in as well- they were fine for the first game of the season, but after that, let's get on with the next 50 years.

    I'm in the minority I guess, I love the throwbacks. Reminds me of watching the games when I was little. I am especially excited about the December 6th game.. Throwbacks around Thanksgiving/Christmas time... I love it.

    It's not sacrilege. I hate them too. But not because they make the players look small and weak, but because they are huge bad luck charms. They promote 30 years of losing and one of the worst Super Bowl blowouts of all time when we finally did have a good season wearing them. I like the colors, all in all. But I'd feel much better with the team wearing the new uniforms. :cool:

    Brady is 2-0 wearing the Throwback (Thanksgiving 02 and Week 1), so maybe they are good luck...


    ...leaving out the fact we played the Lions & Bills, and moving on...

    Love the current uniforms. The red throwbacks are bad mojo. Count me out.

    I'm with you. I like having different uniforms from time to time to break up the monotony. I know a lot of people on this board preferred the silver uniforms for that reason too.

    Ah yes, but he SHOULD be 1-1. ;) Thank you again, Leodis McKelvin.

    I believe the Away throwbacks are white.

    Why don't they wear the throwbacks only in pre-season?

    That way the novelty of it isn't wasted on a real game, and it gives a little more interest to the meaningless games.

    A last second fumble to cause an amazing comeback win.... sounds like some GOOD LUCK to me! Maybe the bad luck is now effecting the teams around us? In the 6 years prior to 2002 when we played the Lions they had 108 wins, in the 6 years after they had... 26... hmmmmmm....

    Good point. Nevertheless, though, it causes bad luck to my heart watching a game like that.

    It is something like wearing bell bottoms and paisley shirts to work. It looks dorky and dated.

    Fuggedaboutit. I still have nightmares of Tim Fox being trampled by the Fridge, with Patsy Patriot buried in the turf.

    Yeah I'm not a fan of the throwbacks anymore. I was excited for them for the opener but was quickly reminded why I was glad they got rid of them.

    1st of all Tim Fox was not on the 86 super bowl team.....

    But I love the throwbacks, reminds me of when I was a kid in the 80's watching the games with my Dad.

    But I like the 80's throwbacks they wore verses the Lions on thanksgiving.

    Pat the Patriots is the greatest sports logo of all time....

    I'm also excited to see the Tampa Bucs throwbacks this year!
