Godspeed, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, Wisconsin Army National Guard! Victory in Iraq!

Here it is, from a slanted pro-Packer bias.



And here be the style sheet. New font for jersey numbers, I see.

But nothing on the Lions' official website.

Bubbles? The Lion's name is Bubbles?

What a week. First I see that Becky Slater was Winnie Cooper's sister, now this. Crazy.

Ugh. DOWN KITTY!

I also think the Rams ruined the coolest uniforms around when they changed.

Looks cool. Can't hurt to try and at least try to look somewhat different as they try to re-build and distance themselves from what they've (been and) become over the past . . . geez . . . I can only remember them being in the playoffs once since I've been watching football (since '76), which may or may not be right, but if it is, I can't be off by more than once appearance I'm thinking (but I'm sure someone will produce the stats to prove me wrong!).

I like that they appear to be keeping the same color scheme as the "Honolulu Blue" looks sharp with grey and black accents. Other teams have had success when switching to new colors, or uniforms so best of luck to them (except when they play the Seahawks of course).

The Lions made the playoffs a bunch of times with Barry Sanders. They were 12-4 and made it to the NFC title game in 1991 (losing to the Redskins like 42-7 or something like that). They also made the playoffs in 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997 and 1999.

Only the Lions could make the playoffs and then lose a game where Barry Sanders had negative yard rushing.

(not bitter at all. It's not like I was watching this game in grad school with a room full of Sconnies, one of whom was actually from Green Bay.)

They changed again?

Or are you talking about the change from last decade that was light years better than the old version?

Thirteen carries for minus two yards. Bryce Paup's wife sat behind us in the stands that day. Great game :-)

Ditto. Those colors just *POP* whereas the more "metalic" blue and gold ones they have now just don't do it for me. Plus, an alternate Yellow jersey in those colors would cause me to consider buying a jersey of a hated division rival depending on the specific player jersey involved.

I must use those Rams unis any time I choose them in Madden. Those were always my favorites.

+1 to the Lions for picking a non-offensive number-style, but -1 for changing in the first place.

I figured you would have a differing opinion of this game.

You can't slight the Lions for changing their uniforms at all. Superstition and Sports go hand in hand, and maybe this will remove the jinx of the 2008 Lions.

Say what you will, the uniform can change all it wants but the fact remains that it is the Detroit Lions and they will sadly suck again.

On a side note, I was stoked about the Seahawks changing the uniforms when they did but now I wish for the days of the old school colors again.

Heh, the Bucs' uniform and logo change was far more dramatic.

Drafting John Lynch, Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, Ronde Barber and Warrick Dunn in a two- or three-year span helps as well.

I think the Broncos' change in unis coincided with their run to back-to-back Superbowls as well.

Same with the Patriots. The Seahawks and Cardinals underwent changes too, and that took them at least to the dancefloor. The Giants changed their away jerseys the year they beat New England. And, as stated already, Tampa went from nobody to legitimate as soon as they got the current uniforms.

However, as for the Chargers and Bengals, well, time will tell. To be fair, the Bengals did make the playoffs after their latest change. It hasn't done much for the Eagles, although 5 NFC Championship appearances in a decade is far better than what the Lions have accomplished. Even the Vikings have had a slight resurgance to relevance with their new uniforms, although that may or may not be on account of a weak NFC North division.

Granted, there are many factors involved other than the uniforms. Elway getting a running game to back him up in his age, the Patriots catching lightning with Brady, The Buccaneers drafting strongly on the defensive side of the ball and keeping those players, Kurt Warner getting to play with an outstanding recieving corps, etc. Odds are the Lions have a much better season this year (even without new uniforms/logos), but it's just plain easier to think of having new Sunday finest than trying to wash the stains out of your old.

However, as a caveat, the new uniform dazzle did kind of backfire on the Rams. Win the Superbowl, change your look, lose next year, slide down the spiral...

A serious question: WHY ARE THE BEARS NOT DRAFTING BYRON LEFTWICH? At this point, he has infinitely more potential then Kordell has. I have a feeling this mistake is going to haunt the Bears down the road.
