I read this in the quick hits of some LFW article recently, would anyone else like to see us take advantage and have a throwback game once a year? Those uniforms were hideous but I would still love to see us playing in them once a year, gives us a sense of history and longevity, and all the other teams wear throwbacks from time to time, I want a tradition like that. And plus I loved the boldness of those uni's regardless of how ugly they were

I would LOVE to have that back for just 1 game. It's better than the packers navy blues and the steelers bumble bees, I just think the boldness of these uni's, with the huge obnoxious numbers and that logo(which I personally have always liked) would just make watching a little more fun for 1 game. Would I want that uni on a regular basis? Helllllll to the no, but for a throwback game once a year, against Cleveland or something, yea I'd like to see that

I vote no. I say redesign a new uniform so the current will be the throwback. The other is more like a throw away. Sorry.

I wonder if they will make a mass produced Ray Lewis jersey in the old school form. I try to collect as many jerseys as I can I would definetly buy that.

"In every journey there will be ups and downs peaks and valleys and no matter how long you have been in this business that when opportunity knocks you gotta grab it. Because if you don't grab it, you never know if it's ever going to show up again. All 32 teams come in with the same thing, for us it's no different. Ultimately the destination is Dallas. The one team to see the confetti drop. We've been everywhere and been tested and if thats in our destiny, than that's what we're really going to touch at the end of the year. As far as, Why else do you play the game? You only play the game to win a Championship. And I want that taste again, and that's always the motivation and that movitivation will never stop untill the day I retire." #52

I would definitely liked to see it used for throwbacks especially if we play the Bucs and they bring back that orange uni with the big pirate head. Whynot? It's only fun.

That could definitely be a fun game next season. Make it happen Ozzie!

 

Really interesting to see the variety of opinions here about those unis, especially since they were a bit before my time. I thought all the negs on the OP were a bit harsh, mind.

 

As for my take on the kit, I put them in the same ballpark as those awful bumblebee/cartoon prison jerseys. Celebrating your history is alright I guess, but I feel like celebrating those jerseys would be like celebrating Trent Dilfer. I think it's best kept a fond memory of a time long-past. I could live with one "throwback" game a season (say, if we're playing the Titans or Giants) but I wouldn't spend money on one of those jerseys.

If you want the throwbacks, the black jerseys have to go. The NFL only allows one alternate jersey for whatever reason. Choose wisely.
