Didn’t have time to write an article, so I thought I’d post a few visuals and leave you light on the reading today. Also, tomorrow is the debut of co-creator of this blog Ribs (Daniel) who has been on vacation in Europe for the Olympics, or so he says. Anywho without further ado, here are my top 5 NFL jerseys:
1. Philadelphia Eagles (1974-1995) - These jerseys rank as my absolute favorite. Ricky Watters made them my favorite, especially with his swagged out green bandana under it. I absolutely hated when the Eagles went towards the “midnight green” color and welcome any throwback nights that the Eagles set up. Michael Vick makes it look damn good as well.
2. Atlanta Falcons (1990-1996) – Deion! He came into my workplace recently and none of my coworkers even knew who he was. I hung my head in shame when I heard about it. This is my second favorite jersey, just screams badass. The red ones that came before these would rank very high on my list as well. I love the logo – it’s clean, menacing, and all I can imagine is a huge ass bird swooping down to take my future first born. Also, dirty bird.
3. Houston Oilers (1970-1996) - Come back to us, Oilers. These were just disgusting, in a good way. I love the logo. I like how the light blue, white, and red played off each other in such a pleasing way. Usually any iteration of those colors make me think “boring American flag” wrapped around sweaty athletes like the Washington Nationals, Columbus Blue Jackets, Tennessee Titans, etc. They did it right with this kind of blue.
4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1976-1996) – You knew these were coming up. What is not to love about the creamsicles? It also reminds me of the oh so yummy orange lazarus from Pete & Pete. There have to be some Pete & Pete fans that read this blog. Right?!
5. Buffalo Bills (1965-1973) - The Buffalo Bills, baby. We round it out with these suckers. I love the contrast of the huge red bull with a very imposing dot for an eye – it also has an utter (or what I’m hoping is an utter). Whatever it is, I dig this jersey.
