When are we wearing the throwbacks?

20 posts in this topic

I think teams have to apply to wear a throwback before the season starts, and I could be wrong but I think the Colts didn't.

I'm sure you are right. I have tried searching for who did and did not apply, but I haven't been able to find anything yet.

$135 for a jersey with iron on on numbers? No thanks.

Zoom in all the way. Appears to be stitching around them.

The Game jerseys are iron on numbers, but the Limited jerseys are not.

Here's the description:

TAILORED FIT

This jersey has a tailored fit designed for movement.

FLYWIRE STRENGTH

Flywire strength resists stretch around the neck, so it holds its shape.

BREATHABILITY

Strategic ventilation over major heat zones helps keep you cool.

Additional Details

  • Team and Alternate Colors: 100% recycled polyester
  • White: 100% polyester
  • Flexible premium twill numbers for an authentic feel
  • Hand crafted inside and out for lasting comfort
  • No-tag neck label offers clean comfort
  • Woven jock tag at front lower left

If we do, it will be a home game.

why the last two times we've done it for a regular season game it was on the road @ Philly in 2010 and @ the lions 2007.

It's still too much money. I get my 100% sewn on jerseys for $40 and the quality is excellent.

I'm curious....

What is the thrill of wearing the same jersey your team wore during the Korean War??

Jersey sales... One could argue there is some sentiment about honoring a specific team, but for the most part it is $ that drives it. Just like it will be in the next couple of years when Nike introduces the pro-combat line to the NFL.

    •   The problem with "needs" based drafting is when teams do it when the talent ISN'T there.    When a team reaches.    As Brian Billick has famously said "'need' is a terrible judge of talent"     And I agree with that.   But here's the deal,   the strength of this draft is defense.    And the talent is going to be there clearly in the first three rounds to draft defense, defense and more defense WITHOUT having to reach for a player who doesn't deserve to be taken there.     I would NOT recommend drafting defensive players when they're just not there.   But they are there this year and we need to take advantage of it.   Plus,  if you can make the argument that it's not smart/wise to draft a RB in the first round,  then I can clearly make an argument that at this point,  taking a guard in the 2nd round is putting too many assets into one area.   How many O-lineman over how many years started off as either an undrafted free agent,  or middle or late draft pick.     Too many times to count.     What we're talking about is the difference between you being willing to spend a 2 on a non-premium position in a year where (A) we desperately need defense and (B) the strength of this draft IS defense and me willing to spend a late 4 on the same non-premium position.       I think to pass on a defensive player for an offensive player at a non-premium position is terribly unwise.   I think the Draft Gods have smiled upon the Colts this year.    This draft matches up with our needs.    Defense and a future starting running back.      I'd like not to spit in the faces of those Gods.  
    • And he's kind of an *hole....if he's not winning, he's a lockerroom cancer...
    •   Agreed on his ball tracking.  It's... a flickering hope right now.  But...   Imo of course.  As I don't know what assignments are given.  But to me Green has severe problems adjusting to defensive shifts.  I've seen a couple of plays that I will try to find tomorrow that illustrate this.  One that I can recall is Green should shift over depending on the defense to either a more central spot or cover over. And either he doesn't shift at all and we give up an intermediate pass or he does shift but late and then ends up being in a terrible spot to make a play on the ball.  Sometimes I think this is his scenario instead of the actual "ball tracking".  Which actually gives me a ton of hope because if he can improve this mental part of the game it might reflect a ton in his "ball tracking ability" as he will set himself up for success instead of failure.  Of course I still don't like that he has a tendency to completely bring his head down if he needs to break.  And his flip (when he does flip which isn't often) is usually very messy and costs him lots of ground.   As a DB... raw would be fitting for him even after this season. But raw is not bad.  Just needs work.
    •   Do you have a link to this and where it says it?
    •   Oh gosh, you are bringing back the full range of emotions here. Garcon catches that ball then I am convinced the Colts win the game.

      Oh BTW, awesome read OP.
