Packers Question of the Day: Color Rush Uniforms

I'll be honest. I've always thought the Packers' Color Rush uniforms were atrocious. It could always be worse, sure -- they could've gone with all-yellow. 

They'll be donning their all-white uni's for Thursday night's meeting with the rival Chicago Bears.

What are your thoughts on the uniforms?

They look like long-johns without the butt flap.

I would have preferred an all green with gold highlight color rush. But the all whites still look ok.

I would've said green with white highlights and the yellow helmets to generate contrast. Problem is that most color rush unis look like college unis or arena league unis.

Perhaps adding the butt flaps would improve the defensive posture.

You're right. Yellow would have been worse. This is the best of bad options. The green would have been awful too. Our scheme is set up for contrasting colors. I guess I'd rather have this if we have to, but prefer the regular home/away scheme for sure

I’m actually a big fan, look very clean, and all yellow would have been horrible.

The Packers uniform doesn't look awful (to me) - not great, but not awful either.

As for general thoughts on them, it's just marketing, imo, doesn't mean that much.

I'm fine with the all white.

All yellow would have been to much.

All Green might have been a neat look.

Honestly I would have loved to have seen all 3 options to see what they would have looked like.

But for their options, all white was I think the best option.

Extreme contrast like white against black (bears) or green field would make to better spot AR's targets.

Go Pack !

I'd like to see the 50's-60's uniforms. I'm tired of the 30's. They have had them long enough.

Color rush sucks. Nike sucks. The NFL always trying to make more money sucks. TNF sucks.

The Bears Still Suck.

Next question. ;)

All one color uniforms always look like you are wearing your garanimal pjs to bed. But given that you had to pick one color to go with the all white is the best you can do.

I would say the controversy plaguing moore the country, where football is just a part of it. and a pretty good one by the way.
So I guess its cool to have back some normal discussions without this emotional overdose.
So.....I like the white ones moore than I thought

Oh I'm sorry, forgive me for trying to keep politics and unnecessary disagreements/arguments out of the comment section. There's other sites and a multitude of social media outlets for that if you really want to delve into it, but there's a football game being played Thursday night.

Agree - some exotic dark green type uni with gold numbers would be cool.
I somewhat like the white, though it seems weird given white is so little a part of the std. uni.

I hate the colors green and yellow haha. I wear roughly 80% black 10% red...the rest packers stuff. Everyone always buys me green and yellow stuff for Christmas and I never wear it unless it says packers. I do however think all yellow would have been cooler looking.

The only reason the Pack went with new pants rather than a new jersey is so the league has one less piece of new merchandise to make money from.

I don't like it. An occassional throwback uniform from another era is cool to watch and experience , I suppose, but this has become way too common now. Whose idea was this anyway. I think it sucks, I have to adjust now 'cause it doesn't look like my team. All white, what year did we use that jersey, was that the year heavy snow was predicted often and early. Oh, it's color rush, not throwback, ok, what the heck is that. Don't change the game this way, it's changing enough as it is. NFL needs to quit messing around and just play football. Why change a good thing, usually when you do you make it worse, just ask Coca Cola. Green and Gold baby as it was and as it should be.

I strongly dislike (there's too much hate everywhere lately) both the color rush and throwback uniforms. It just doesn't feel like MY team if they aren't wearing the uniforms I've watched all my life. But the NFL loves getting more money and a deal with Nike with more apparel to sell is not going away. The white uniforms offend me less than other options, I guess.

For all the attention color rush gets,its flat blah. Adds nothing to the game, and in my opinion, detracts. Get rid of it, I say.

I like this third uniform. The 30's era throwback are getting a bit old, but I do hear that AR likes them because they are similar to the Cal colors.

The color rush, like Thursday night football is unnecessary and adds little to the game. Out of the 3 color choices I guess the white is the least offensive. As for the throwbacks I would love to see the 60s version again. Thanks, Since '61
