Were now in the second week of the second season of the NFLs Thursday-night Color Rush program, which features teams wearing solid-colored uniforms. Vapormax Plus Nere . The program has been promoted as an innovative approach to NFL uniform design, but heres the thing: NFL teams were wearing solid-colored unis long before the NFL and Nike dreamed up Color Rush -- in some cases more than 80 years before.Charting the NFLs early uniform history is tricky, because color photographs are rare and uniform fabrics often reacted differently to color dyes, so jerseys and pants often didnt match even if they were supposed to match. But according to the Gridiron Uniform Database, the definitive guide to pro football uniform history, one of the first NFL teams to wear a mono-colored uniform was the 1933 Cincinnati Reds, an early franchise that only lasted one and a half seasons before being suspended for failure to pay league dues.Since then, a surprising number of NFL teams have gone mono-colored at least once. Some, like the Reds, are now-forgotten teams from the leagues early ragtag era. But others are franchises that are still with us today. Heres a selective timeline of some key dates in solid-colored-uniform history. It doesnt show every single mono-colored uni in NFL history, but it gives a good sense of how the phenomenon has evolved over the years:1935: The Brooklyn Dodgers (yes, that was the name of an NFL franchise from 1930 through 1943) and Green Bay Packers (yes, those same Green Bay Packers) wear solid-green uniforms. The Dodgers wear them again the following year, while the Packers mono-green look turns out to be a one-season thing -- for now.1940-42: The Steelers include solid-yellow uniforms as part of their wardrobe for three seasons.1946: The Boston Yanks -- another short-lived team, with a now-unthinkable name -- wear solid-yellow uniforms for one season.1950: With new Packers coach Gene Ronzani declaring, We are the Green Bay Packers, the team dons solid-green uniforms for the first time since 1935. The greens are worn for one season, then retired, then revived in 1953, and then mothballed yet again. (Meanwhile, the Browns, who have been folded into the NFL after playing for four seasons in the rival All-America Football Conference, wear something no NFL team has previously tried: a solid-white uniform.) 1964: Due to a miscommunication prior to a 1964 Lions-Vikings game, both teams take the field wearing white jerseys, which creates problems. So the Vikings, who are the home team, send an employee to fetch the teams purple jerseys. The game is briefly stopped while the players change jerseys on the sidelines, creating the NFLs first solid-purple uniform.1965-1996: The mono-colored look, which was always on the fringes of NFL popularity, falls out of favor completely, as the league settles into the protocol of wearing non-matching jerseys and pants (the occasional solid-white uniform notwithstanding).1997: After an absence of more than three decades, mono-colored uniforms return to the NFL, as the Broncos wear mono-blue twice during the preseason and then the Eagles go with solid green for a regular-season game against the 49ers. The Earth wobbles slightly on its axis, then recovers and continues spinning.2001: After three seasons with no solid-colored uniforms, another crack in the dam appears, as the Saints wear mono-black for two games, becoming the first team in the Super Bowl era to wear a monochromatic uniform more than once in the same season. It is a hint of things to come.2002: The floodgates open, as nine teams wear solid-colored uniforms. Some, like the Seahawks and Bills, adopt the mono-color style as their primary look; others, like the Bears and Dolphins, just dabble with it as a onetime experiment. Collectively, though, the message is clear: The solid-colored NFL uniform has arrived.In the 13 seasons since then, an additional 13 NFL teams have dipped their toes in the solid-colored pool for the first time. So by the time the Color Rush program debuted last fall, mono-colored uniforms werent exactly a new concept. By Uni Watchs count, 26 of the 32 NFL teams had already gone mono at least once by that time, and 24 had done so in the Super Bowl era. When viewed in that context, the Color Rush program isnt really so innovative -- its just the latest spin on an established trend.(Special thanks to Phil Hecken, Chance Michaels, and the Gridiron Uniform Database for their research assistance.)Would you like to nominate a uniform or uni element to be showcased in a future Friday Flashback installment?

Odds are courtesy of the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.TCU Horned Frogs (-7.5) vs Arkansas RazorbacksPickCenterFallica: Arkansas typically plays well in this spot under coach Bret Bielema, as the Hogs have posted four wins against ranked opponents as an unranked team in the past two years. But I think this could be a bad spot for Arkansas and its rebuilt offensive line. I know TCU struggled last week defensively versus an FCS opponent, but I have to wonder how much of that is attributable to re-establishing roles with so many players returning from injury; furthermore, there might have been a lack of motivation against an inferior opponent and a sense of looking ahead to this week.I would expect TCU coach Gary Patterson to have that unit ready to roll this week. Keenny Hill is off to a good start in Fort Worth, and remember, he had a huge game against Arkansas during his September Heisman run in 2014, throwing for 386 yards, four touchdowns and five completions over 20 yards. Air Max 2019 Offerta. TS pick: TCU 38, Arkansas 24Coughlin:?When I think about my favorite coaches to back in college football, Patterson and Bielema are in the top five or six in the country. After watching these teams struggle versus less talented teams last week, I bet both men in charge are still curious about what they have on their rosters.I feel like this could be a back-and-forth game, and knowing how fearless both offensive systems are, you can expect that if either side has a lead, it will not take its foot off the gas pedal. Bielema is 37-4 against nonconference opponents during the regular season over his 10-year head-coaching career, and Arkansas is 3-1 against Big 12 opposition under Bielema. The Razorbacks have also won seven of their past eight games dating back to last season.Therefore, I would be surprised if the Horned Frogs ran away with this game. Ill say there will be a lot of points scored, though, so take the over.ATS pick: TCU 38, Arkansas 31 (over the total of 58.5) Cheap NFL Hoodies Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys NFL China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
