Pats Throwback Jerseys Make Sense

Henry LaborantiContributor INovember 24, 2009

The Patriots have been used to success in their present uniforms since 2001. However as Patriots fans are familiar, the red throwback jerseys just seem to be terrible luck. Why? The Patriots didn't win any Super Bowls until they wore their current blue uniforms. But when you take a good look at the Patriots red throwback jerseys they've been wearing this year, it just fits the team right.

While the jerseys may be bad luck, everything about the old uniforms shout PATRIOTS. The red jersey with blue and white stripes, the white pants with red and blue stripes, and the helmet is the best of all. What is more patriotic than a revolutionary minuteman snapping a ball wearing his full gear? If you come up with something let me know. The truth is, I've heard plenty of people say "I like the old logo better." And after a few games with them wearing it, I have to agree. Don't get me wrong I do like the new uniforms and I feel they're one of the nicest in the NFL. But the red throwback jerseys are better looking and just match the name perfectly.

Therefore, I feel that if the Patriots refuse to change they're uniforms back to their original colors and logo, I feel these red jerseys should become their alternate jersey. That way, the Patriots will be able to wear them at least twice a year without risking penalty. Think about it Mr. Kraft, it just might work out.
