Not only is there excitement about the game itself, but the Dolphins are also donning their throwback white uniforms for the first time this season. They’ll wear the throwback aqua jerseys against the Dallas Cowboys on Christmas Eve.
The throwbacks are favorites with the fans, and after the way that some of the players and coaches spoke about them this week, it’s clear that they have some fans.
Here’s what they had to say about the new/old jerseys:
HC Mike McDaniel
“I’m really a huge fan of our uniforms that we have. I’m a huge fan of the throwbacks. I think we’re fortunate to have an iconic logo and that historical – the whole idea of throwback uniforms I think is tailored to us specifically just because we do have – that’s my whole childhood is what I picture. It’s cool when we have those on deck and it’s always fun to plan, but I love our uniforms, too, so it’s a win-win for sure.”
“I love the throwback. Now if that was up to me, I’d definitely have that as our every week jersey, the throwback. I like it. It brings the swag out… That old-school logo is crazy with the all-white. It’s going to be live.”
CB Nik Needham
“Oh yeah, those are my favorite too.”
LB Jerome Baker
“The colors. The logo is super cool. So I think overall just the fans love it,” linebacker Jerome Baker said. “We love it. I don’t think I’ve ever really heard anybody say they don’t like this. I would like it to be the permanent choice.” (via. the Palm Beach Post)
“Clean look. Good look. The stripes, I like that look a lot. I don’t have any say in if they should be permanent…”
