This upcoming Sunday, the Titans will visit the Rams and it will be a glorious uniform matchup. The Rams have decided to wear their 1999 throwbacks to commemorate their lone Super Bowl win against the Titans.
What a tremendous uniform opportunity! The Titans have essentially kept their uniform design since that season and the Rams’ decision to do this is a great back in time nostalgic uniform matchup. It will be great.
However, they won’t be exact. As you can see from the above video, the Rams wore their white jerseys and the Titans wore their navy jerseys. The Rams are set to wear their blue throwback jerseys, forcing the Titans to go with their white jerseys. It’s a shame that the Rams have no option to wear white since each NFL team is allowed three different jerseys per season. Had the Rams designated that third jersey as a white one, we’d have no problem. But they didn’t (as they are going to go throwback again later this season against the Buccaneers.)
The uniform matchup will be just like 1999. But not exactly. So close. Just like Dyson, so close, but not close enough. I still look forward to seeing this and feeling like it’s 1999 all over again.
I just noticed this during the weekend and apparent Nike implemented these changes last season, but the shoulder yokes for the Titans have been significantly reduced. Compare from when Reebok made the jersey to what Nike did last night.
Clearly the yoke has been slimmed along with smaller numbers and logo. Obviously this is a part of the Nike’s template and this is what they have resorted to do. I like the bigger yoke and it works well with the Titans’ jersey.
This gives me the feeling that maybe sooner than later, the Titans might go for a rebrand. Even though the change is minor, it’s a change that might signify that a new look could happen. Just my guess.
A few things have occurred over the past few days and I wanted to just say my thoughts on them.
This story broke my heart and it just brought up memories of Junior Seau’s death. We don’t know what caused it and if it had anything to do with brain damage. But it reminded me a lot of Kenny McKinley and how he was suffering through a hopeless feeling and killed himself after trying to rehab back onto the Broncos.
I want to put this out there that people who have never been on the verge of suicide should never judge people who do commit suicide. You’ll never understand what it takes to push someone over the ledge. And I don’t want to judge Murdock for his actions. There could have been a lot of factors to it.
But this death adds more to the black cloud over the NFL and its current state of players killing themselves. I hope this isn’t part of the concussion issue that’s going on. But at the same time, something wrong is happening and we need to stop it.
Which team will Peyton Manning choose?
I was just searching through the Internet and came across this picture. Pretty good Photoshop work from whomever created it.
I will guess that the body of the Titans player is Matt Hasselbeck. The Bronco one is definitely Tim Tebow. I want to say the third one is Alex Smith but the arms look too skinny. Maybe it’s not even a 49ers body.
This whole thing has gotten to the point where I am sick of it. Of course, since I am covering the 49ers, I have to pay attention to it. It’s not as crazy as FavreWatch, but it’s still pretty annoying.
