You may, or may not, see the "G" with the blue jerseys when Green Bay takes on Cleveland in October.


Well it makes sense seeing as how they're playing the Browns. Personally though I don't care for throwbacks jerseys unless it's Thanksgiving or the "75th meeting between two teams" type of games. Seemed like a few years ago the Cowboys wore their alternate/throwback unis more than their normal ones.

I like tradition and old jerseys but I have never been excited about these. If they don't have to wear the ugly helmet so much the better.

Teams can't wear the Throwback helmet brands. It's a safety issue per the NFL Safety Committee. They can however wear the new brand helmets with throwback graphics .Hopefully not, because [puke] [puke] [puke] [puke] [puke] [puke] [puke] [puke] [puke]

Ron Wolf proposed packer uniforms

Personally I always liked these, but I even like the throwup, I mean throwback uniforms they've worn recently, too. The new ones aren't green 'n gold, but something still appeals to me about them

Packers will remove logo and stripe on the helmet, but keep the "gold" color.

I wanted the brown helmets. I thought that was SO FREAKING COOL! Got tickets to that game just for this purpose, to see them in their full throwbacks.

The Packers wore the 1929 Blue /Gold jersey long before the Vikings were established in 1961. Packer wore blue and Gold jersey from 1919 into 1950's. In Vince Lombardi's(1959) his first year as Packer Head Coach/General manager. made the decision to use green/gold uniforms. Almost the same design of uniform with litttle change that they use today in 2014.

The Packers won 6 NFL Championships wearing the Blue and Gold uniforms. 1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939, and 1944. They went undefeated wearing the Blue & Gold in 1929, going 12-0-1.

I think the NFL would be doing everyone a favor if they just scrapped the entire idea of throwback jerseys every season. There are some fugly jerseys and to be honest, I am not fond of the Packers throwbacks (there are uglier though).

I don't understand why they can't just take the same brand/style of helmet they are currently using and paint them brown?

A place I looked up has blank football helmets for sale. Avg price $254.75 x53=$13,488.50. Kinda pricey for one game every 2 years or so. Plus all the other specialty items that go into NFL player helmets.

They turn around and sell that shit for bucko.

Plus they sell replica versions of the throwback jerseys.

Yeah, and ~$15,000 dollars is chump change to an NFL franchise. Especially when considering the exterior benefits your mentioned.
