Packers Will Wear All White Uniforms

Here’s a twist we didn’t see coming. The Green Bay Packers, as part of the NFL and Nike’s stupid Color Rush uniforms experiment, will be donning all white uniforms this season.

That means white jersey and white pants. NFL Leaks confirmed that today.

The Packers’ Color Rush uniforms were originally thought to be all yellow. All white seems to be a better option in our estimation.

The Packers will wear these uniforms when they play the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football. That game takes place October 20.

Several teams wore the Color Rush uniforms in 2015, including the Rams. That’s Jared Cook sporting one above.

    I think it will look sharp. Hopefully next year they’ll consider an all green set up.

    Why stop there? How about the refs wear safety yellow? And the field can be white with green stripes? And instead of 8:30pm we can play at 8:30 am because you know we need gimmicks to get people to watch the nfl.

      It’s not an issue of getting more viewers so much as it is selling more merchandise. This is no different than the third/alternate sweater in hockey.

      Personally, I find the solid colors to be just plain boring and/or ugly. Why not do something totally off the wall?

    This CF the NFL insists on keeping on life-support has me scratching my head.

    In the case of the Packers, and a few other teams, you have a look, a brand if you will, that’s been developed and promoted over decades that is readily identifiable with the team the instant you see it. You know it, you like it and seeing it makes you feel good. I understand there are some teams that need to try this carnival barker shit to drum up some interest, but fuck them. Leave the iconic brands of the NFL and their color schemes alone.

    Imagine some pencilneck at Coke insisting they need a new logo. Or a Harley marketing puke pushing a line of pink and purple scooters into production. Chevy says fuck the bowtie, let’s go with this bedazzled, Prince-looking badge on this entry-level model to attract younger buyers.

    NFL has, and continues to shit the bed on this one.

    Brings to mind a game many years ago Tampa at Lambeau in snow storm, poor fuckers wearing road whites were invisible to The Green Testicle (Vinny Testaverde). It was a nightmare for them…
    Then there was the Madden fog game at Soldier field, wreaked havoc on TV coverage….
    Barring freak October snow should be ok….Fog could be issue
