    Minor gripe, but does anyone else think Sony doesn't look great in #26? For whatever reason I think it looks bizarre on him.

    Off the top of my head, any of the following would look better:

    21
    24
    31

    (I realize none of these numbers are available, just thinking hypothetically).

    I had the same thought about Josh Gordon. I think #10 looks better on Gordon than #26 does on Michel, but I realized #88 was available and think Gordon would look great wearing that.

    Just some random musings that are of no real importance. ;)

    Saquon Barkley wears it and we’re all expecting big things from him. I don’t mind the #26 at all.

    Unfortunately for Michel, the numbers that you suggested were all taken by veterans. Harmon took Butler’s old 21, Gilmore has 24, and Jonathan Jones has 31.

    I agree that Gordon would’ve looked good in the 88, although maybe he can replicate the good vibes brought from another mid season acquisition with former WR Jabar Gaffney.

    He would definitely look better in 21 or 31. I thought it was kind of pointless changing from 29 to 26 since both are meh numbers. I don't like 24 on any position besides corner.

    26 isn't bad, though. Imagine if he was running around wearing 49.

    New generation, new number looks...for example, who would've thought Alvin Kamara would make number 41 look so good? Or even our own Benjavus Green Ellis with number 42?

    Basically, I say that to say, allow the player to make the number...I like it because we never had a RB in New England, lately, with the number 26

    26 is okay but the font of the number factors in how it will look and that’s why it may look weird. But it’s super confusing as it looks like it wants to be 28 on the field. The announcers can’t tell if he’s on the field or White.

    21 would’ve been better. But 34 is bad** like Earl Campbell and Bo Jackson. Sammy Morris looked great wearing that number.

    41 still looks terrible. 42 looks like a guy who won’t make the team.

    20 is a clean RB number. I'd go with that over 26 any day.

    26 looks like 28 so it creates confusion for defense and announcers..:p

    They’re just numbers, how can they look “good” or “bad” on specific guys’ uniforms?

    The latest Boggs episode from a couple of weeks ago was great.
