When are we wearing the throwbacks?

Recommended Posts

Nike has the white game jersey throwbacks for sale, and NFLshop just listed the limited white throwbacks too.

I'm assuming this means that we will be wearing them this year. Anyone heard anything about when that might be, or anyone want to make a guess?

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:

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.

    • Prevent is the defense I call the prevent me from winning they need to scrap that play from the playbook.
    • I agree on that but what I am getting at is their number of lineup changes in the OL which at last count was around 36. That cannot be defended ever. The players know they are failures. Grigson did not just make one mistake. 
    • The reason they both look tired by 3rd quarter is because they are on the field way too much throughout the game.
    • They just tied the record for the second most sacks given up in the entire history of the Colts and folks, that goes back a long way. They can't see their feet much less a light at the end of the tunnel. A good coach solves problems like many teams have done this season. The Colts get worse and that means either the staff is incompetent or they simply don't give a rats rear. Pagano's post game press conference after the disaster at home with the Jags showed he does not care. He was sarcastic and avoided every question insulting the reporters just doing their jobs. When you get hammered at home you have only one thing left to do and that is make n attempt to be respectful of the reporters who will turn and tell the fans what you said and how you said it. Ignorant Brissett said "Is there a problem with this team"? Yes there is smart guy and you a part of it. Hilton hammers the OL in public. All signs point to Pagano's lack of authority over his players. He want to be daddy and Santa Clause to football players. That has never worked at any level. 
    • We can probably even argue the more power he's been given and the freer he's been during his tenure the more his weaknesses have shined and overtaken the performance of the team. In a weird twisted kind of way Grigson might have been a balance to the buddy-buddy relationship between Pagano and the players. Right now wheels are falling off both on the field and off the field(players blaming whole position groups for the  failings of the team in front of sensation-hungry journalists, etc). I previously thought Pagano was an OK coach who simply not good enough to go against the best of the best. Right now I'm revising my view and leaning more and more toward the conclusion that he's not even as good as I used to give him credit for. From preparation to personnel decisions, to game management to player development... where is he even remotely successful? I don't see it. To me this looks like a total and complete failure on all fronts by Pagano.
