    For those of you not familiar with the website, this guy is an NFL blogger, but also happens to be a Chargers fan so you get to read him rip on the Turds all the time. Pretty good site.

    I'm not sold on the shield thing. I don't think it was the regular helmet



    Great uni. Best ever

    The shield was worn by some players during some games in the '63 and '64 seasons. I doubt we'll see any player(s) wearing the shield this season but who knows?

    Note the uniforms the refs will be wearing for the legacy games.

    Ya think Hochuli can find one of those Orange and White ref shirts in his size?....three sizes too small?

    If they let the "New York Titans" play the Broncos in their throwbacks it would be a great game to watch...on radio!!!

    Those are some ugly unis, folks!:puke:

    Cool Uni's! I just wish, for a once, they would go back to the 1980's Fouts era ( I may be biased :lol: ) Royal blue jersey, helmet, Yellow pants, and face mask... nice!

    Can you imagine a Monday night game, Fouts era jerseys vs. the Donks in their orange uni's, or Faiders, or to a lesser extent Queefs?

    Who's with me? :abq2:

    I'll co-sign that! I love those unis, when I play Madden on the computer I use the current Chargers with those unis.

    Are you talking about a throwback game in those unis?
    I brought that up once and I would love to see that!!! :bolt:

    As for making that their regular unis... I like the ones we have now but I'd like to see them with a blue helmet.

    Yes, maybe next year, similar to this year 1963 theme, 2 games with 80's uniforms, 1 game against Faiders, 1 game against Donkeys...

    FWIW, I can't think of any bad Bolts uni's, blue n gold with a bolt looks good, whether it is powder blue, royal blue, navy blue, or the current new school uni's! :bolt::bolt::bolt::bolt:

    In 20 more years, I will be asking for 2 games with navy blue Seau era uni's! :lol:
