Don't look now, but the Los Angeles Rams are trending on Twitter. All because of their uniforms.

The 49ers' long-time rival revealed new garb for the 2020 season on Wednesday:

The new combinations are in the team's primary colors: Royal blue, neutral white and yellow. The helmets will be blue with an updated, modern spin on the iconic horns.

Not many were a fan of them:





Nothing flashy or extra about these uniforms, they're just kind of ... there. They are a bit bland, really, but you can't unsee the IKEA and even Best Buy comparisons.  

The main objective behind the new jerseys was to match the style and design of SoFi Stadium, while still maintaining the style and colors fans are accustomed to.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Rams COO Kevin Demoff is aware not many will embrace the change.

"Jerseys and logos in sports become part of the lexicon and become iconic because of what players do in them not because of what the design is," he said. "So we're really excited to see it come to life."
