    I liked the whole look, if only because its trying to put a modern spin on an older era. of course the transition isn't going to be seamless, but its not like they could be out there sporting leather helmets...

    After the game, i wouldn't mind getting a Driver or Jennings retro (Blue and Gold looks GOOD on me :) )

    Yeah, it was fun to see em in a different color uni, but man, you think about how much money was spent on that, for a overall disappointing look. Ah well. Definitely forget that next time. Just borrow some Uniforms from Notre Dame next time. LOL

    The last one violates the cardinal rule (helmet should always match either the jersey or the pants), but it's so damn cool I don't care.

    Favorite alt would be San Diego Chargers.

    I felt we went against the wrong team for wearing the Packers alts, all the brown and gold went bad. I didn't look at the TV much, but looking at the game, it seemed like a mess. The sharpness of the Yellow and Navy was great, the brown wasn't that much. :( Still think they should of went with either matte brown, or just yellow helmets.

    I was disappointed more by how they only really did one thing to mention them during the game, at the game, and that was sing the Packers old fight song. Plus figure that the cheerleaders would of been in blue instead of green. If you are going to spend the money make it all out.

    Put me down as one who thought the throwbacks were ugly. They probably looked good in 1929 when the world was in black and white. It also REALLY upset me to see Aaron Rodgers on the sideline with that blue and yellow beanie on. It looked TOO much like purple and yellow! It gave me the willies big time.

    I didn't mind the throwbacks. They could be worse like Denver's or the New York Titans or even the Tampa Bay Bucs. The

    The Packers wore these colors LONG before the Rams came into existence, folks. One can say the Rams unis where "copied" from old Packer uniforms.

    The Wearing Of the Green (andĀ Gold)

    The Packs attire has changed quite a bit in it's long history, usually the result of the head coach.

    Yesterday the Pack looked like the Pack of old, not at all like some other current NFL team.

    I still think those hats still look too much like Vikings hats. Take a look.

    I liked the throwbacks, something different. I wasnt huge on the pants and helmet either at first, but when I saw the old uniforms and how much alike they were I liked them more, hope we throw em on again. We are 1-0 in them you know hahaha

    Thirded.

    I'd love it if Tampa changed back to those full time, even though their current jersey isn't all that bad.

    The real 1929 uniform:

    [​IMG]

    I think they could have left the helmet yellow, since Curly copied the original colors from Notre Dame--but maybe they were uncolored leather--not sure. The brown helmets were ridiculous.

    I like the true gold pants instead of yellow and they should change our present yellow to gold. We are the Green and Gold.

    These aren't truly throwbacks, but someone's idea of modernizing the old uniforms. Another way to make money.

    I wouldn't mind if we had both blue/gold and green/gold uniforms with the present style, saving the blues for special occasions.

    No.

    The Packers right now have an iconic look. It's also one of the NFL's best looks. It should never be changed. Much like Pittsburgh, Oakland, and Dallas should never change their basic uniform design or colors.

    I like our look too, Jess. Lombardi added the G on the helmet, which should never change; and I like the present uniforms' striping and numbers. But seems to me the yellow and the green has become brighter over the years, I suppose for tv purposes. A return to darker shades of green and yellow (i.e. gold) would be a return to the original colors, which would be no problem for me. The blue also is rooted in our history, and the present uniform with blue instead of green would be fine with me for certain games.

    I hope we never see a "modernizing" of the uniforms with something like the "motion G", or the goofy Nike-like stripes on the pants that are popular now.
