Bills and Jets reveal ugly #ColorRush uniforms

We got a sneak of it last week. Now we’ve seen the first matchup. Gross.

I mean, look at this Gumby uniform! Don’t try to mask your shame with the chrome helmets.


NFL’s #ColorRush is coming and it’s a good idea executed poorly

The rumor during the offseason was that the NFL wanted some color vs. color uniform matchups during Thursday Night Football. It wasn’t clear whether or not teams would wear new uniforms for this occasion or just have teams wear what they have in their rotation.

During a commercial on Thursday Night Football, we got our answer. Check out the above video.

The idea is either to help merchandise sales or make Thursday Night Football seem like a special event. Either way, it doesn’t need to happen but it’s here. Color vs. color is nice and I want to see more if it in the NFL. But their approach to this isn’t the best.

Let’s break each matchup down in the order these games will be played.

These Bills fans have found the perfect way to cope with losing all the time

Bills fans have resorted to this? Hilarious.

Is this the new way visors will look in the NFL?

This was something I saw this morning and I don’t know if this is new or relatively old or whatnot. But it is a pretty unique development.

For the longest time, visors in the NFL have either been clear or tinted. But never have I seen a visor designed where you can see the logo on it.

I always thought in terms of branding that there were limitations on how a player can equip their helmet. However, since the design is the team logo, then it would be OK, right?

I haven’t seen this yet on the field. If I had missed it, I’m pretty shocked I did. Would more teams adapt this look or is too much of a distraction? I think it looks pretty cool but I think it might be too much of a visual distraction.

My Top 10 best NFL helmets of all time

Last night I started to think about the best helmets in NFL history. It was something that I decided to make a list of right here just because why not? The NFL helmet is the identity of the team. I remember the old Monday Night Football intros where both helmets crash into each other. That’s priceless.

So with that in mind, I’ve decided to create my own personal list of the Top 10 helmets in NFL history that I think stand the test of time. Feel free to disagree with me here.

Before I begin, here are some basic criteria that I used to determine which helmets should be on the list.

Fan wastes votes on Kiko Alonso for a Buffalo Bills hat

So my initial reaction was that it may be illegal to publicly share a ballot like this. But I think in New York it isn’t. Well, anyway, it’s stupid.

Secondly, what’s more American with democracy where people waste their votes? This! Kiko Alonso needed your vote!

And why did they do it? For a free Buffalo Bills hat! At least what the prize is for future vote-wasters.


War is no joke but Stevie Johnson doesn’t get it

“War is nothing to be played with. I apologize North Korea……..but if y’all do bomb 1st… Bomb Foxboro, Mass. Sincerely,

No. You don’t make jokes about bombs. You don’t make jokes about war. You don’t wish bombs will drop on anyone.

Yet Stevie Johnson does just that.

Shame on you!

A first for me when it comes to Twitter and a player tweeting about his own release

Earlier today, the Buffalo Bills released linebacker Kirk Morrison. Morrison had been inactive for weeks and the release makes sense.

But what struck me about this was not the move, but how Morrison on his Twitter account announced it. Normally when a player is released, he would immediately go on Twitter to express their thoughts. Instead, Morrison retweets a the news from a writer that covers the Bills on the team website.

Then two hours later, Morrison tweets his emotions out. This leads me to wonder, did Morrison find out through Twitter? I’ve never seen a retweet of a news report of a player’s own release. It just struck me in an odd way.
