    Trade Calvin Johnson to us and I'll agree with you.

    Re: Lions ditch black jersey in favor of throwbacks

    Other than the purple pants, which I don't believe we wore last year, do we even have a third set?
    Some of you guys who are good with photoshop should design some and submit them on here.
    I'd have to go with the Gold color theme, since most teams use the least dominate color for there third.
    (Giants red, Bears orange.)
    NOT puker gold, but a variation of ours.
    A gold jersey, grey/silver pants.
    ( It looked good on Madden 07, trust me)

    Yea def.
    I think a primarily black set or gold would be pretty sick.

    Our alternate uniform set is the purple pants with one of the two jerseys, and no, we didn't wear it last year.
    We wore our traditional home and aways, and the throwbacks (which don't count as alternate) once.
    Teams can only do a major uniform redesign every few years (I don't know the number off the top of my head). This is to prevent the team from fleecing the fans with new jerseys all the time.
    Our last major redesign was in 2006, so I don't think we are eligible for a new one already.

    Our purple jerseys with the purple pants are some of the best uniform sets in the league.
    I really like our new look.

    Best current jerseys in the league:

    Vikings
    Chargers
    Ravens Black
    Rams
    Philly
    And personally I like Carolinas.
