Packers’ Color Rush Uniforms Appear to Be All Yellow

The Green Bay Packers look like they’ll be wearing an all-yellow ensemble when they play the Chicago Bears on Thursday, October 20.

These are what the NFL and Nike — their official uniform provider — are calling Color Rush uniforms. They’re all one color and will be featured on every Thursday night game during the 2016 season.

The uniforms debuted in November during the 2015 season, when the Buffalo Bills (all red) faced the New York Jets (all green).

Although the Packers had a Thursday night game later in the 2015 season — December 3, at Detroit — they were spared the fate of having Nike screw with their uniforms. That was only temporary, though.

The Color Rush unis were optional for Thursday night games in 2015. They are not optional in 2016, so every team playing on Thursday night — the Packers included — will be wearing a monochrome version of their usual ensemble so the NFL can make a few extra bucks.

The colors for all Thursday night teams were supposedly leaked on Saturday. The Packers will go all yellow.

As you can see, the Packers’ opponent — the Chicago Bears — will be going all orange, according to this chart.

Yellow vs. Orange.

That’s going to be interesting to watch, especially considering those colors aren’t all that different.

But listen, the integrity of the game isn’t what’s important here. Money is what’s important here.

If you want a preview of what the Packers are going to look like, take a look at what former Ram, now Packer, Jared Cook looked like when his Rams got the Color Rush treatment last year.

    As I see it it’s more like gold vs pink.

    1) The color rush uniforms are fucking hideous and nothing more than a blatant money grab, as everyone knows.
    2) Why the fuck are the Raiders “gold”, Detroit black, and the Bengals fucking zebs? Good job, NFL.

    Mustard yellow vs. pinkish orange. This ranks up there with The Ghostbusters reboot for worst ideas ever.
    I also love how they are all supposed to be one color and yet, the Giants, Bengals and Ravens are still multi-colored.

    Shouldn’t the Colts and Texans switch colors?

    I really love this website, but if you greedy bastards could cram one or two more advertisements onto it, it would be fucking great. You bitch about the Packers making grabs for our money, and I see nothing but more and more ads on here.

    let’s see here’s the Falcons, cardinals, raiders, Eagles and jets don’t make any sense. The only color rush that’ll come from Baltimores Thur night game is whatever I had for dinner that night after I puke watching them don that dizzying state flag. This shits a joke.

    It’s all so the NFL can sell some replica jerseys.

    I can’t believe such attention is being paid to such a naked marketing gimmick… It has one purpose and one only: to sell more replica jerseys and hats. Just keep printing that stupid name, Color Rush, Color Rush. Fucking world is getting dumber and dumber.

    I like the idea. It can’t be uglier than our turd brown uniforms.

    Some of the colors don’t make sense. Like yellow for KC or gold for the Cardinals. Isn’t the Cardinal a type of red color? Speaking of color any team with the name green in it like say, Green Bay would you not give them, let’s say the color green. Maybe I’m going out on a limb here. I’m just saying.
