    I know they did this when the helmets were still blue.
    Mid 2000's?
    It's a good change-up, but I prefer more of a break-up
    in the color scheme.

    Nike didn't do the uni's any favors with the lame
    fat, white collars.

    yeah, the game that was played in Arizona because of the fires, but since this uni has more white (the helmet, the wide leg piping, et) it kinda looks better.

    hate the "disco shirt collars"

    I wouldn't like it with a white helmet, never been a fan of three color unis (helmet, jersey, pants).

    I like this uni better than the 80's one, but, I would love to see them play one game in them (blue jersey)

    The white helmet is the original and if it could all be put together right I think it would look just fine.

    On a related note, don't forget to bring the WHITE on opening day vs. the Flaming Thumbtacks!

    The Chargers announced Tuesday they will wear white jerseys and white pants in their Sept. 16 home opener against the Titans. The team said it encourages fans to wear white to the game, a "white out."

    That's the only color jersey I don't own. I'm a little too messy to wear all white!

    MOP - i like that darkblue on darkblue mock up, very cool looking. i think those pants with a yellow jersey would be very cool as well....

    i agree with many of you that the new nike jersys are not to great, i forget what team it was but the wife and i were watching the nfl channel and i mentioned to here her that the collars now look like fat lapels on a disco suit.

    a white out for the home opener huh, sounds cool, i have a weddle jersy in each color, so i can wear my white one for sure, no white pants for this guy though!

    should be alot of fun and great game no matter what the atire it, i can't wait!

    Watching the game last night, the Giants' jerseys looked like someone had laminated the collars, or peed on them. Either way, not the best look.

    I don't own much white (I get stuff dirty too fast) but I do (like CBF) have a #85 in the old away jersey.

    I think the old school all white 'away' uni was an absolute work of art
    (though the powder blue home jersey is even better)

    My Seau jersey is powder blue, and I will be wearing it to the game where he will be honored.

    I wonder if it's going to be white with navy accent or white with powder blue accent, have they worn white powder blue jerseys? (alternate, not throwback)

    The only white w/ powder blue jerseys I can remember them wearing, were throwbacks.
    I don't believe they've manufactured any of the modern design in white + powder blue.

    together they are the best uniform this team has ever worn

    Your pic and my pic = the way it should be, period

    All the teams who have gone back to their older uniforms and those who have barely changed theirs over time look great IMO. The classics work in the NFL.

    this would be the bomb:

    edit: yes I'm aware the bolts are backwards on the helmet

    I'm 100% with you on the Chargers...

    95% with you on the rest of the league (there are notable exceptions)

    That's not the "classic" Steeler look though, that's pretty much what I was getting at. Yes, those are HORRID.

    teams currently sporting their "classic" look (or something very near to it):
    Packers
    Jets
    Giants
    Browns
    Cowboys
    Raiders
    Chiefs
    Bills
    49ers
    Saints
    Dolphins
    Bears
    Steelers
    Colts
    Redskins
    Lions

    Didn't count the newer teams who haven't really had uni changes yet (Car, Hou).

    Saints uni is pretty legitimate, and very N.O.
