The Buffalo Bills No Longer Have The Worst Uniforms In The NFL
Since their last redesign in 2002, the Buffalo Bills have had arguably the worst uniforms in the NFL, a failed attempt at modernizing a once-classic look through the darkening of colorways and the unnecessary addition of random shoulder channels.
The ugliness of the Bills unis were only matched by the ugliness of the product that the franchise has put on the field for nearly the last decade. And while it may take a few more years to improve the quality of the on-field product, the team has at least improved the look of its previously atrocious threads, by simply going back to what's worked in the past.
The Bills unveiled their new home and away uniforms yesterday, eliminating the navy blue in favor of their more traditional royal blue, and switching their helmet color from red to a more classic white. The uniform design is essentially the same as the AFL throwbacks that the team wore in 2009, with a few minor tweaks to reflect the team's more modern logo.
Relying on the past to design a team's uniform of the future is nothing new in the world of sports. In past years, both the Detroit Pistons and the Cleveland Cavaliers have scrapped entire colorways in favor of going back to their original schemes, and just last month the Washington Wizards introduced a red, white, and blue Bullets-esque design.
