When we first saw the 2016 mockups of the NFL’s Color Rush uniforms to be displayed on Thursday night games, we quickly picked our biggest likes and dislikes of the lot.
In retrospect, after turning on our TVs this Thursday, we only wish we had put the Dolphins dead last and not in the runner-up position. Seriously, Jacksonville Jaguars — we owe you an apology for putting yours below … this:
Like a cross between a syrupy orange soft drink and the old Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniforms of Creamsicle yore, these atrocities make the Tennessee Volunteers’ jerseys look tame. Anyone have any Delsym? We can’t help but cough.
Many of you agree. In fact, everyone seems to think they look like anything but a football outfit.
