Fear not, fearless reader (uh, yeah)...the fine folks at The Society for Sports Uniforms Research have the answers:

TEAM COLOR DATE(S)
Atlanta Black 11/28/2004
Baltimore Black 11/07/2004
Carolina Blue 10/24/2004, 11/28/2004
Cincinnati Orange TBA
Cleveland Orange 11/21/2004
Denver Orange 11/28/2004
Houston Red 10/31/2004, 11/28/2004
Jacksonville Black 12/05/2004
New England Silver 12/12/2004
Philadelphia Black TBA
San Diego Powder Blue 10/10/2004
Tennessee Blue 10/17/2004, 12/13/2004

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.

Sadly there's no Skins on that list. I'd like to see that sweet Spear and Feather throwback one more time.

Houston is going red? Does that mean they're wearing the old Dallas Texans helmet and jersey even thought it's KC's throwback?

I quite liked the Eagles black jersey. Not quite as dapper as the green, but certainly not unattractive.

I've not seen San Diego's yet, but 'powder blue' doesn't sound too inspiring. Still, its not like they haven't got bigger problems out there ;)
whatever

The Browns orange jerseys are okay, but the orange pants were pretty sweet last year.

I always envision Lance Alworth in powder blue. All the kids in the neighborhood aspired to be Lance Alworth. He had the powder blue, the cool Lance name. He was cool. And powdery blue, too.

I always liked the Chargers white helmet with the arcing lightning bolt myself

and the Cowboys had Lance Rentzel around the same time but he was basically just a cheap knockoff of Lance Alworth

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.

Or y'all can just watch Colts games, where it's throwback night every night 'cuz the uniforms haven't made a dramatic change in a looooong time. But that's not a bad thing... that's a good thing.

Sure they made a dramatic change...changing addresses from Baltimore to Indy. Ba-dum-bum!

Try watching Packer football. We ARE throwbacks.

The link says they're third-jerseys, not "throwbacks" as previously mentioned.
