    Lets wear our throwback uniforms. If there was a time to do it it's now. It says "This is who we represent and who we really are". Forget the media and a couple of players. Let the players wear the uniform that got wins, played hard every game and committed themselves to their fellow players, fans and history of a great team.

    im being serious. Lets overcome all the hate from the outside. Let's go back to wearing the uniform that actually intimidated teams before the ball was snapped. Our Dolphins meaning the team need every edge beit psychology or whatever. Lets go throw back and say this is who we are. And yeah i may be wearing tinted glasses but if those players wear that uni then it might give them an extra inch of pride and and an extra inch of speed or commitment in making that tackle, catch or run. Right now everything that might help can get us over this hump.

    Not exactly the Mindset you want with media heat all over you. Wear a uniform that represented bashing the hell out of opponents and bullying them around the field. I don't think this organization has the balls to do it they are going to be kid friendly now. I totaly get your point but I don't think they want anything to be "different" than other teams right now.

    The statement would be, "We wish we could turn it back to the 70s or 80s right about now."

    Love the throwbacks, that thanksgiving game in dallas always comes to mind. One things for sure, those 1997-2012s are gone forever. The fondest memories in those unis: Ricky arriving and leaving, and winning the division thanks to the jets ditching Pennington for Favre, and Brady going down.

    the league does not allow you to just throw on any jersey. you have clear it with the league first and its decided before the season starts. you cannot deviate

    May have been mentioned already, but you also cannot use alternative helmets anymore either. Makes a lot of throwbacks useless now.

    Thats very true. However, if the team was willing to take the time to switch out all of the facemasks and logos between games, we could, since the helmet has always been white.

    The new orange uni's won't be revealed until next season supposedly. Definitely looking for them though.

    I see that college still allows for 4-5 different helments. Think that rule is bogus.

    Is it a rule or does the league not prefer it? Think Green Bay went old school earlier in the year, but not sure about those helmets.

    When they wore throwbacks this year they used the current helments without a logo. They would normally be like this.

    New rule this season, involving concussion protocol, that every player has only one helmet that he wears all season (unless its somehow broken). Makes completely different helmets, such as those worn by New England with their throwbacks, off limits.

    I don;t think that's true. I have seen a few alternate helmets this year already.

    last year they wore alternate helmets...this year I think that's right. they are using the same helmet with all the decals off.

    Orange jersey and aqua pants would make a better statement: this uniform is just like the organization, dysfunctional and a mess

    I know the Bills are using helmets with removable decals in order to use their throwbacks. Teams like Tampa Bay get screwed though, no more creamsicle unis

    I would agree, get rid of the crap we're wearing now. IMO, our new uniforms and logo are now the worst in all sports. Our uniforms match our OL play.....lol

    Yeah, it's a new rule. In fact, the Buccaneers had to cancel their throwback game because there was nothing they could do about the helmets. Some teams, like the Packers and Redskins, basically just took their decals off.

    This. Every team has to have their jersey choice for each home game submitted to the league by July 1st.

    here's the memo on helmet rules (i wanted to see for myself)...

    DATE: August 22, 2013
    SUBJECT: Throwback Uniform Helmets

    Our Head, Neck, and Spine Committee, chaired by Drs. Hunt Batjer and
    Richard Ellenbogen, and the Player Safety Advisory Panel, chaired by
    John Madden and Ronnie Lott, have recommended that players no longer
    wear different helmets as part of a “Throwback” or "Third" uniform.

    Our office supports this change and has reviewed it with the chairman of
    our Health and Safety ownership committee, Dr. John York, who concurs
    with this recommendation.

    We have communicated the change to those teams that are planning to
    wear throwback uniforms for at least one game this season. Teams may
    continue to wear throwback uniforms under league guidelines, but players
    must wear their regular helmets. The outside of the helmet can be
    modified by removing or replacing decals, as long as it does not affect the
    integrity of the helmet.

    The committees believe that a cautious approach to the changing of
    helmets is an important best practice for player safety.

    This change is consistent with numerous changes we have made in recent
    years regarding uniforms and equipment. If you have any questions,
    please call either of us.
