The Green Bay Packers have unveiled their new comeback jerseys for the 2021 NFL season. Inspired by the uniform that the historic franchise wore in the 1950s, it is obvious.
The new green and gold design is much improved over the recent retro ACME Packers units they have worn. Who can forget the brown helmet and blue jersey Aaron Rodgers and co wore in 2011?
More and more teams are set to reveal their classic NFL uniforms, which got us thinking about what comeback jerseys we want to see return to the league in 2021.
Now spoiler alert, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers “creamsicle” jersey is not on the list. NFL fans either love it or hate it and let’s just say we prefer their current red and black color scheme.
Let’s take a look at the best in NFL fashion and imagine today’s stars wearing these uniforms in 2021 and beyond.
# 5 – Seattle Seahawks
The new Seahawks uniforms are eye-catching, especially the all-neon green Nike rush design. But it would be great to see Russell Wilson, DK Metcalf and Jamal Adams wearing the classic 1980s Seattle jersey.
The white design with green and blue trims is a Seattle Seahawks classic. Add the cool silver helmet with the retro logo and you are close to perfect.
# 4 – Bison tickets
Nothing screams the early ’90s more than the Buffalo Bills blue NFL jersey. The Bills are enjoying a renaissance under the leadership of head coach Sean McDermott and quarterback Josh Allen. So now is the perfect time to bring back the uniform that defined the team’s most dominant era in the NFL.
It would be great to see the Bills finally lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy with a nod to their heartbreaking past.
# 3 – Cincinnati Bengals
Who doesn’t love tigers? Bengal tigers are some of the coolest big cats on the planet. Cincinnati is expected to bring back its tiger-style jersey design from the 1980s.
The jerseys in which QB Boomer Esiason led the franchise to the Super Bowl are legendary. Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase would look great with this model in 2021.
# 2 – The Denver Broncos
Listen to REM’s song “Orange Crush” because we’re talking about the classic Denver Broncos Orange Crush design from the 1980s.
When you think of John Elway, you have to think of the Professional Football Hall of Fame quarterback wearing that jersey.
The Broncos may not have a QB star yet, but this jersey will help their fans remember the glory they spent under Elway.
# 1 – The San Diego Chargers
Ok so the team has moved to the City of Angels but that doesn’t mean they have to ignore their past. Especially their magnificent powder blue swimsuits from the 1970s.
Fortunately, Nike recently brought back a similar design for the Los Angeles Chargers.
The distinctive color scheme is synonymous with the NFL franchise and harmonizes perfectly with the blue sky of LA. It’s the perfect “boss’s kiss”.
