    Packers will not be wearing the throwbacks in a game this season.

    I'm sure this will be met with mixed reaction.

    Any reason why given? I thought they had to wear them a couple times per season.

    No reason given, but I am told that Nike will still sell them.

    I actually like the Brown and Blue unis, and if I recall correctly the Packers have been quite successful in them. With that being said I don't think I will actively miss them.

    With the throwbacks, I don't understand why they didn't just make the helmets navy blue to match the jerseys. It would have greatly improved the overall aesthetic.

    ...It's not like anyone is going to confuse a modern football helmet in brown for an old leather helmet on their HDTVs.

    The Packers beat the Rams and 49ers wearing the throwbacks the last two years.

    Disappointed, I like the Packers in their Blue and Gold occasionally.

    wont miss them, thought they were ugly. I would much rather see a true alternative Uniform, one with a unique coloring or reverse color scheme

    I'm not so sure, jay...some folks can be mighty 'thick'. ;)

    I'm with those who say "Good riddance". It's just an income generation thing for NFL Properties anyhoo...

    Our entire uniform could be considered "throwback." If anything I say we should get a ridiculous alternate that the young guys find "cool" Hey, the purpose of the alternate IS to wear something completely different right? Quite frankly our alternates now ARE ugly, and I much prefer our regulars.

    NOTE: I am not saying change our regular uniform, I believe quite the opposite.
