Ranking the 2016 Color Rush uniforms

The NFL unveiled the 2016 Color Rush uniforms, which will be used on Thursday Night Football this season. After last season’s colorblind debacle — where folks who were colorblind could not differentiate between two color-on-color uniform combinations — the NFL decided to introduce a few white-on-white uniform combinations.

Here are the official Roto Street Journal 2016 Color Rush rankings:

1. New Orleans Saints – These are fire flames and the Saints need to make these their permanent away uniforms, now.

2. Cincinnati Bengals – They call this the “white tiger” look and they couldn’t look more fresh. They should have went full white tiger and changed the helmet to white and black.

3. San Diego Chargers – The powder blue alternates are the best jerseys in the NFL. These are a little darker and I love the gold facemasks. The Chargers consistently put out fresh uniforms.

4. Dallas Cowboys – The Cowboys wore these last year and they’re sweet.

5. Green Bay Packers – They’ll be wearing white pants for the first time since 1958. Classic look, but very sharp.

6. Oakland Raiders – The Raiders would cheat and wear silver pants with white jerseys. Either way, these are nice.

7. Carolina Panthers – Carolina stuck with their 2015 Color Rush uniforms. Those pants are electric.

8. New England Patriots – The red and white stripes on the jerseys are a nice touch. I might like these jerseys better than their current ones.

9. Denver Broncos – I really like these. They should use these jerseys with white pants, instead of their current home uniforms. Also, the helmet will use the throwback logo with the “D” — which is a very nice touch.

10. Houston Texans – Uh, hey Houston… You’re playing the Patriots in Foxboro and you literally copied their Color Rush. I like them, but they’re wearing white this year, and these next year.

11. Buffalo Bills – The Bills kept their 2015 look. I love the tone of this color red and it looks very American — Colin Kaepernick wouldn’t approve.

12. Indianapolis Colts – I like the blue-on-blue color rush. Unfortunately, they won’t be wearing these until next season.

13. Tennessee Titans – The Titans are bringing back their powder blues from last season and I like them. Bad news though, they’ll be playing against the worst Color Rush uniforms for the second straight year.

14. Seattle Seahawks – Okay, these are bright as fuck and a little overboard. But I think I like them, more than I should.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers – Here’s the run of black-on-black uniforms. When you think of the Steelers, you think bad ass. These are basic and bad ass.

16. Arizona Cardinals – These are pretty sweet. I wish they could rock black helmets, but I’m a fan of the white piping around the numbers.

17. San Francisco 49ers – The 49ers used their all-black alternate uniforms. These are similar, but I like the Cardinals’ better.

18. Philadelphia Eagles – Just like the 49ers, these are the Eagles’ all-black alternate uniforms. They’re nice, but lets be more creative next time.

19. New York Giants – These are a throwback to the 80’s, when Lawrence Taylor was dominating the league. I like ’em.

20. Miami Dolphins – Just like the Seahawks, these are pretty wild. This shade of  orange is a little too bright compared to the Broncos’ ones, which is why the Broncos are up so high.

21. Atlanta Falcons – Kinda boring, but I like the jerseys — especially if they matched them with white pants. Kinda high school’ish.

22. Detroit Lions – Meh, boring. Should have done silver or blue.

23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – The Bucs are running with their 2015 Color Rush unis again, which aren’t terrible, but their logo should create more potential. I prefer the Bills’ shade of red.

24. Kansas City Chiefs – Again with the red-on-red, but I prefer the Bills and Bucs’ unis.

25. Chicago Bears – Boring. Change it up.

26. Cleveland Browns – Like a few others, these won’t be seen until 2017, due to a color clash. They should have just went full-Browns and made them gross and Browns’ orange.

27. Minnesota Vikings – These look like your local high school team’s uniforms.

28. Baltimore Ravens – I love their all-black uniforms and I hate their purple uniforms. Be better, Baltimore.

29. New York Jets – These are the same as last season, but they’ll be wearing a white facemask for the colorblind folks, which should make them a little better. Still gross.

30. Washington Redskins – Holy shit, these are gross.

31. Los Angeles Rams – The Rams are wearing the uniforms they wore for their last game in St. Louis, but not until 2017. Thank you for saving our eyeballs for a year. Disgusting.


32. Jacksonville Jaguars – PUKE. These guys kept their 2015  Color Rush uniforms. Big mistake. Black-on-black with some gold would have boosted them into the top-half.
