    I got Madden 08 for Christmas, and played as the current Chargers the other day, but had them wearing the Air Coryell era unis. It was pretty damned cool, forgot how much I liked those. Watching LT playing in them was very cool. :tup:

    I would love to see us wear those as throwbacks some day, but I doubt it will ever happen. We are stuck with these until whenever, and I don't think the Spanoses like to acknowledge that the Gene Klein era existed.

    I like those old school unis too Savage. I still remember Fouts and Air Coryell back in the days (see Avatar pic) Still pissed to this DAY they didn't get to the big dance and win it. Frickin Faiders.....

    I dont really like that Madden game. The announcing sucks( no Madden at all) and LT fumbles way more than he ever would in real time.

    I like the NCAA 08 game much better.

    I'm all for changing to the new powder blues fulltime and donning the Coryell unis as our throwbacks.:yes:

    I've loved them all up until the current ones, which made it even worse.

    The uniforms you are talking about (the Fouts era unis) are probably some of the ugliest uniforms I've ever seen. You probably saw them play when they wore those uniforms which is probably why you are fond of them, but they are pretty dorky looking.

    What? No school bus yellow pants???

    Titans are gonna get beat, no matter what the Bolts wear.
    Which I suppose will be the home blue.

    You're on crack, they look great. Nothing is worse than the gay **** we have now. Upside down bolts, feminine numbers. Terrible.

    I liked the royal blue shirts. I was not all that fond of the mustard pants without bolts.

    I wouldn't mind having an alternate 'throwback' being royal blue.

    Sorry, old man, but you are on crack. I was a little kid when my parents took me to the stadium to watch Fouts and Co. tear it up in the old unis, so I have fond memories of those unis. But they are fugly. The new ones are much better. I guess they are just too modern for crotchety old men. :lol:

    You started this thread just to whine (once again) about our new unis. That's really rather pathetic. Regardless of how you mask your intentions, it's clear that you were just waiting for someone to bring up the new unis so you could bash them.

    You seem just a little too fashion obsessed. This is the NFL not Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

    I like all our uniforms, and the 80's Air Coryell unis are my favorites as well. I also throw those on when I play Madden.

    Matter of opinion and the type of crack your smokin. I like the new uni's. I dont see whats wrong with the numbers.
    The Fouts era your talking about are OK, but no the best we have had imo. Blue on the helmets dont match the jerseys....too much yellow in the uniform imo.
    The throwback PB's are the ****. Shouldnt have touched them but i understand why they did.

    Those unis were the best looking in the history of the league.

    I don't quite agree. But that doesn't surprise me. Aesthetics to one person is junk to another. The same way one person will love modern art and the next will consider it a waste of time and space.

    I just cant get past the mustard yellow pants. I do really like the new unis to. The white helmet with the yellow bolts is SCHAWEEEET!:tup:

    I was talking about the powder blues. I'd actually forgotten about the pants that looked the color of my pee after a vitamin B shot. Man, it's time to go to back bed. I hate waking up and one in the morning. TTFN

    Dude, those yellow pants from back then look like something that came out of Gaymart over in Hillcrest.

    The new uniforms might not be the best uniforms but they sure beat those lame yellow and blue uniforms.

    Fear the yellow facemask....NOT!

    i agree. also when you have one of those low big hits they don't fumble at all on the other hand when you push to the side they fumble all the time. i give it 7.5/10 the classic chargers uniform is awesome though.

    The Air Coryell uni's are my favorite. But we'll never see them because Alex Spanos hates them.
