    I hated them at first, but man, they looked awesome tonight. Ditch the monochromatic look and give them the old school yellow pants and I'm sold. New permanent uniforms.

    Broncos on the other hand look like a knock off Browns uni. Orange on orange is gross.

    Gave me flash backs to Air Coryell.

    Happy times

    Once the shock wore off, they grew on me a bit.

    Probably because that middle blue is a step closer to the original magnificent powders...

    (but I'd never choose tonight's over the originals...)

    I think they're the best color rush unis I've seen, and I usually hate the color rush uniforms.

    This was a very pretty game tonight to watch!

    I loved the Chargers Colour-Rush uniform

    I loved these color rush uniforms in both teams, but the powder blue is the best uniform in the NFL.

    I like them, and look forward to the next time the Bolts can wear them. The royal blue & bright yellow are a good nod of respect to the "Air Coryell" era and as Philip mentioned after the game, wearing them when he passed Dan Fouts was extra special.

    They look sharp, but white pants would be better there.

    I loved the Air Coryell shade of blue! But the blue pants have to go! What made these uniforms really stand out was all the orange in stands.

    When I saw the donkeys take the field I thought "Look! It's the fighting carrots!" OK...they didn't fight that hard really.

    Would have preferred the gold pants, like some of you have mentioned but all in all I thought they were sweet!

    I'd be totally fine with these as our permanent jerseys, with the powder blue alternates.

    My God, I'm tempted to buy one.

    The amount of Charger fans at the last game almost shows you which way the vote is going to go. There are not enough fans to get it done.

    ^^^ Just a little sidenote, I have noticed that for all of the Chargers home games so far this season the number of people attending has not gone above 60,000. And just from talking with other Chargers fans, quite a few long-time season ticket holders have cancelled their membership. Several others have changed allegiance and gone over to the L.A. Rams. (Probably those that live in Orange County/Los Angeles areas) Must be that 10%...

    I don't like the yellow pants/white helmet look.

    I dumped my season tickets. I may try to hit up a game this year, but probably not. If I do I'll stop by and say hi to everyone.

    For what it's worth, I thought that the unis on Thursday night really stood out in a "live" setting. And those royal blues were awesome!

    The Chargers' uniforms have always looked cool. There isn't much that can ruin blue, gold, and white with lightning bolts.

    The Donkeys' uniforms, however, have always been awful. And I believe anybody who looked at a Bronco during the color-rush game will go blind a year earlier than he or she otherwise would have.

    That first list is terrible. The only ones, in my opinion, that could even enter the conversation as better than the Chargers are Cincinatti, Dallas (I don't know why I love these ones so much), Pitt, NE, Carolina, or LA. I think the Chargers are by far the best and it isn't particularly close.
