The List: NFL's worst uniforms

Three weeks ago today, we brought you our subjective list of the top 10 uniforms in football. And now we balance it out with the 10 ugliest.

10. Tennessee Titans: The Titans deserve some love for their baby blue alternates, but their regular navy blues are just bland and boring. Oh, and their flaming thumbtack logo sucks.

9. San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers have had so much success as a franchise, but the Steelers and Packers have become far more famous for their colours. There’s a reason for that. Red and gold just doesn’t do it for me.

8. Washington Redskins: The colours are now synonymous with the team, which is a good thing. But that doesn’t make them any less ugly, especially when they wear those blasted yellow-goldish pants.

7. Arizona Cardinals: The Cardinal logo itself on a white helmet is fine. Everything beyond that is a disaster, especially when the Cards wear those hideous all-red uniforms.

6. Kansas City Chiefs: Just far too much red. It’s everywhere you look. The Chiefs fail in their attempt to mix yellow with the NFL’s most overused colour.

5. Carolina Panthers: Typically, newer teams have a tough time avoiding lists like these. That’s because most of the best nicknames, logos and colours have been picked over. The Panthers (Est. 1997) have a solid name and a decent logo, but that funky blue and shiny silver come together to define cheesy.

4. Buffalo Bills: They’ve overcomplicated a solid mix of colours. And those helmets have way too much going on. I’m thinking Bills fans would prefer their throwback alternates year-round.

3. Houston Texans: The Texans faced the same problem as the Panthers, but it seems as though they didn’t even try to establish something unique. These jerseys are just too generic and bland. And when they go all-red, it’s worse than it is in Glendale.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Teal!? Teal!? Was pink off limits?

1. Miami Dolphins: Ohio does it right and Florida does it wrong. In an apparent attempt to stand out, the Fins and Jags found away to utilize teal, aqua and coral … and television viewers pay the price. I realize that the Sunshine State is flashy, but both the Jags and the Dolphins have exceeded the per-team flash quota.

  1. Holy inaccuracy. The Titans’ baby blues (that you praise) are not alternates; they have been their primary jerseys for several years now. In fact, the Titans have not worn navy (which you criticize) even once in the last 3 years. The Jaguars haven’t worn the uniforms that you posted since 2008, either. Also, the Bills uniform you posted no longer exists, so it seems unfair to criticize it (although I agree it was disgusting). Sorry, but this is a poor article.

    • Edward, what the hell are you talking about?

      Chad, I may have been intoxicated while writing this. I literally had no idea that the Titans had retired those navy blues … and what’s amazing is that I was a Titans fan for years before getting this gig. That said, I still don’t like the whites.

      In my defence, the Jags jersey I posted is nearly the same as any shot I could have used from this season (like this one). The criticism had to do with the horrible colour.

      Oh, and I am excited to get to point out your error in your attempt to call out mine! The Bills shot is from THIS SEASON. Are they making changes for 2011? Yes. Have they worn or even revealed those uniforms? No. So until that happens, those are the uniforms of record.

      So calm down, Chad. The only real “inaccuracy” is that the Titans no longer wear those jerseys … but their white ones still blow. I’d say I did pretty well considering my level of intoxication.

  2. Skin,phin,car,are you retarded

  3. Um… I don’t see Seattle’s neon alternate on this list. That’s worse than all of these put together. At least Miami makes sense to have bright colours – it’s MIAMI. What about Seattle makes you think neon green? They should all be wearing flannel or something.

    (And to be fair, the Dolphins’ solid greens are somewhat rarely-seen these days since they’re a white-at-home team… but, then again, they do have those hideous orange jerseys tucked away.)

  4. Stephen,

    I’m ashamed to admit I sort of like those orange Dolphins jerseys. This probably means there’s something very wrong with me, but most of my readers were already well aware of that.

  5. I just happened across this sh*t. Hopefully I can get out without getting it all over me.

  6. This is the most inaccurate of all top ten worst uniform list’s ive ever seen…just terrible
