Landry is the complete receiver. I love his toughness.

It would be nice if we adopted our throwback look full time. They look far superior to our the lighter jerseys we currently sport. Honestly I see an update coming along at some point in the future.

They probably did some kind of marketing thing where they asked a bunch of women what they thought. They sure didn't ask us. Give us some orange!

Those cupcake, aqua fresh uniforms against the badass Raiders was as big a contrast as it gets on one football field.

:)

And Dave, mind your male privilege bud. That female comment was extremely insensitive and offensive.

Restore to the 78-85 uniform please. Can keep the new logo if need be. We look like smeared toothpaste out there.

It’s a shame. I’d be willing to bet that at least, AT LEAST 80% of the fan base, you know, basically the people that fund the team, are behind this. I’m just not sure if Ross is so eager to ditch the new uniforms fresh off the press of just a couple years. If it ever happens it may take some time.

We can't change until 5yrs is up and I'm sure the logo would have to stay the same, but we're close to that 5yr mark. These uniforms suck worse than anything we have ever had, and while I hated the navy drop shadow of the 90's uniform and lack of stripes on the sleeve, it is still better than what we have.

As a fan that started in 78 and lived through the Marino years, I loved our uniforms. The helmet stripes, the fat sleeve stripes, and especially the fat pants stripes. Aqua surrounded by two fat orange stripes. We looked tough, not like the wimpy uniforms we have today. IDk what the heck our brass was thinking, but these new uniforms make us look so darned wimpy.

All I’ve known is suck, but I agree with everything you said x10.

We had some great moments in that game. I don't want to take anything away from Damian Williams who refused to get tackled before he dove into the end zone, but Landry was no his friggin' knees making that block. You don't trade leadership like that away.

I haven't found a good picture of that catch, but let's face it, Devante Parker makes a catch like that every game. It's starting to get "ho-hum" now.

:haha

Here is a great exchange between Landry and PBP Jason Lieser about the block.
