Orange jerseys: not throwback enough in Denver, everywhere else...bah. The Pats' silver just looks like dirty white on TV, black in Philly is beyond stupid...but powder blue in San Diego is always an AFL-esque treat. (No, not Arena ball, you darned kids.)
But darnit, no throwbacks for the Pack this year. I would've liked to have seen the Tony Canadeo-era gold shoulder pads one more time...or at least the Bart Starr-as-head coach-era 80's unis one more time.

Denver's orange uniforms will spark a mild controversy. After 1997, fans lamented for years over the absence of the orange. They brought out their orange, third jerseys for a Sunday night game against Indy in 2002. They then proceeded to lose on two 89 yard field goals by Mike Vanderjagt. Fans and the team were devastated. The orange jerseys were supposedly "banished".
And hey...how could the Society for Sports Uniform Research miss out on the Patriots' "Super Bowl Champs" patches that they're wearing? Ha! We laugh at your piddly research, SSUR!

I am such a mark for silly stuff like throwback day... I love tuning into a game and thinking "What The ?", which always follows by "cool! Throwback jersey!"
I luv the Chargers powder blue uniform along with the white helmet with the gold lightening bolt... A real stand out for the retros that I've seen in the past. It's going to probably be my highlight as a Charger supporter for the year, oh well lol.
