Throw Midnight Blue out the window—here comes Royal Blue.
Not only are we getting rid of that depressing blue the Bills have been sporting, but we're bringing back a more cleaner color scheme with white helmets and solid Royal Blue jersey. Red trimming around the numbers and the sleeve stripes give it that extra oomph.
Yes, I see the comic value there too in the fact that I'm sure many people don't know the specifics of the current Bills jersey design because they'd rather change the channel to watch Jersey Shore than be subjected to seeing the Bills lose almost every week.
But last year seemed to show there's a fighting spirit in Buffalo, and a change in uniform might just go the trick.
Either way, this throwback is swanky. The plain red buffalo is a hell of a lot more interesting than their logo now and, just like the Falcons, this jersey gets rid of the unnecessary added designs that mess up the classic look that's most appealing here.
I particularly love the thin blue stripe in between two thicker red ones along the pants that contrasts the three stripes on the helmet. Nice touch.
Verdict: Better than the current uniform?
Better. But having seen the Madden 12 trailer, it looks like the Bills might have a decent uniform to challenge this one after all.
