Packers Have Awesome Uniforms, According to Some ESPN Guy

Clay Matthews and Cullen Jenkins

It really amazes me the stupid shit ESPN comes up with these days. Yesterday, they compared Kobe Bryant with an actual black mamba. Today, they’ve ranked the uniforms in the four major pro sports.

Do we have the breakdown? You’re damn right we have the breakdown! We love ESPN’s pointless drivel! Completely subjective lists fucking rule! Yeah!

The Green Bay Packers came in second among NFL teams and sixth overall.

Green and gold is the perfect autumnal color palette for a fall sport, the road design just about holds its own with the home uni, and the Pack’s helmet logo still feels vibrant and relevant (unlike, say, the Bears’ logo, which is starting to feel dated). Green Bay also has leapfrogged ahead of most NFL teams by not switching to the new Nike collar. Only two quibbles: The TV numbers have gotten intrusively large, and my kingdom for some striped socks.

The Chicago Bears were the top-ranked NFL team and second overall. No. 1 overall went to the Montreal Canadiens.

    We also have the coolest throw-back unis too…

    The 1929 throwbacks are sick…i’m happy we’re going to be wearing them again once this season & once again next season…

    What game are they sportin’ the throwbacks TyKoSteamboat?

      I dunno…2 seasons ago it was against the 40Whiners at home (week 10 i think)

      Last year against the Lambs week 6

      The NFL regulated the throwbacks for 2 home & 2 away games per season for 4 seasons for GB (i’m not 100% sure, but i’m pretty sure of this)…
      However, GB chooses to just wear the unis one home game per season…

      Side note: notice that the ViQueens wear the old-school purple while at home vs. the NFC Norris opponents…kinda nostalgic

      they are not wearing throwbacks this year. Too bad, I liked them.

      1. E. Wolf August 28, 2012

        Good news. I don’t like them.

    I also like the throwbacks. Curly Lambeau had the better fashion sense with blue and gold, but you gotta go with green and gold when you are GREEN BAY.

    The green and gold is superior, there are too many blue jerseys in the league already.

    The ‘skins are doing a 1930’s throwback this year that is pretty sharp (as opposed to the godawful Steelers throwback this year) which incorporates a worn leather look to their brown helmets. Pack should follow suit.

    Don’t like the throwbacks. … It was fine as a one time thing, it’s time to stop.

  7. DevilDon August 24, 2012

    This is news? I already knew that! Straight up dynamo unis.

  8. TyKoSteamboat August 24, 2012

    Let’s all just STOP this!!!!

    When you think of cool/nostalgic uniforms, you should only think about the Philly Eagles, Cinci Bengals & Jax Jaguars…

    The best-looking jerseys in the NFL… ;)
