    Will find out @ fan fest this weekend. I'm curious if they will have jerseys for sale already this weekend. The one I read the most about is the "Blood McNally" jersey with the number in the circle with the brown helmets.

    From what I've heard, it's not it. There's a thread about it already, going to merge them...

    I do believe that Earl Lambeau picked the original blue and gold after his college days in Notre Dame.. Maybe i could be mistaken though.

    Wolf's idea makes some sort of sense if put in proper perspective. The '94 season was the league's 75th anny & many teams wore throwbacks that year. One game in particular stands out for me (maybe Wolf too, at the time) & that was DET positively dominating in DAL on a MNF contest with both teams in throwback uniforms.

    DAL had those goofy stars-on-shoulders uniforms & DET had their '50s uniforms on. Wolf's idea may have been introduced in '93 (GB's 75th anny) but it gained some momentum (in his mind I think) after that game. If you know anything about what those DET uniforms looked like then you'll recognize the similarities to Wolf's proposal.

    Metallic gold helmets (silver for DET), mostly solid color jerseys & pants made for a more collegiate appeal, what some assert is the appeal of the GB franchise anyway. It seemed to make sense at the time. Pre-Super Bowl win in '96, those uniforms had been through the mud way too many times & a fresh look might have been in order to energize the fan base once again. Thankfully winning did the trick instead.

    Permanent Thread: Packers Twitter Pics

    So I am into this twitter thing and I am following alot of NFL players. What I find really cool is when the players take pics and post them to their twitter. For example, during the pro-bowl, players were taking pics with their camera phones and posting them. Stuff like the locker room, team bus etc...

    I decided to make a thread where I will post the pics the Packers players take of Packers related things (considering they get behind the scenes pics).

    So to start, pics of the new uni's on players from FanFest:

    I don't hate them as much as I thought I would. I could see myself using them once or twice in Madden.

    I like everything but the brown helmets. I understand trying to go all retro, but it doesn't look right converting it. The jerseys look fine, very smooth, especially with no TV numbers. The circle number thing looks cool too, unique to all other jerseys. Even the tan pants looked neat with it, though I think seeing the staff wearing all at once will be more of a shocker.

    I really like the new uniforms.

    Only gripe i have is with the Helmets. I know they want to kinda simulate with a Leather helmet but it looks kinda ulgy.

    The Uniforms themselfs are amazing. Nice Retro look.
