It’s funny how we much stock we put in team’s uniforms. And how personal each of our preferences are. I agree with much of what you said and tend to prefer “classic” looks to the trying way too hard (Jaguars, Seahawks, Browns, Buccaneers) looks that teams are changing to. Thank God for the stalwarts that won’t change, like the Packers, Raiders & almost the Bears (that Nike flywire design on the collar looks like baby spit-up).
I have to disagree with one helmet you favored, that being the Redskins. Their best look was the dark burgundy era of 1965–1969. Steve Spurrier brought back that uniform for a moment in his ill-fated era and I almost liked them a bit for it.
