There were two major items to discuss from this past week’s NFL action, and they both were of the short-of throwback variety.
Both have been discussed here and fantastic uniforms options that teams have abandoned as their primary uniforms.
We’ll start with the St. Louis Rams went went with their yellow-and-blue throwbacks for a close loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. For the second time this season (the other coming in a victory over the Saints) the Rams played over their heads while sporting these phenomenal uniforms.
There was even a bit of talk on Twitter about the possibility of making these fantastic uniforms the primaries for the Rams in the years to come. That would be a great move for the franchise.
The second great uniform move came when the Chargers broke out their powder blue alternates in a dominant victory over the Ravens. While these uniforms always look good, they look even better for night games because of the way the blue shines in the lights.
It clearly helped San Diego on the field as they rolled over the Ravens and put themselves back in playoff contention, just like the Chargers do every season.
Hopefully, that is enough to hold you over until for a bit. Over the Christmas break, I will start to gather information on the BCS of uniforms for when bowl season really starts to kick into gear.
Until then, enjoy the football on Christmas Eve.
