The new Nike NFL jerseys were revealed Tuesday, and St. Louis Rams fans hoping for some drastically altered uniforms—perhaps some Greatest Show on Turf-style blue-and-gold (but-really-yellow-if-we're-being-honest-with-ourselves) throwbacks—are, alas, doomed to disappointment. Take a look at the new Rams jerseys here, swaddled in some really unhelpful shadow and one of those poses people make in Under-Armour commercials:
Well, okay, sure. These are clearly made by a different apparel company, so if you're in the apparel business I'm sure this situation was exactly as exciting as first advertised—no doubt they're talking about this all day on Pieces of Cloth Sewn Together Nation, the official uniform-apparel-blogging community of SB Nation. If you're not in the apparel business, well, at least you only had to be disappointed once.
Someday the Rams will realize how much cooler their old color scheme was, and that day I will get truly excited about a uniform unveiling. Until then—well, it's just going to be a matter of waiting around for throwback day every year, so that I can give the Tony Banks Era the respect it truly deserves.
