Detroit Lions Throwbacks Receive Honorable Mention in NFL.com List


Continuing in the theme of the lockout induced slow news cycle, NFL.com has ranked the best old-school uniforms. Those simple blue and silver throwbacks the Lions have been wearing on Thanksgiving made the cut as an honorable mention.

The first thing the Lions should do is rid themselves of any black in the uniform. Those black-tinged uniforms only remind me of the Joey Harrington era in Detroit. Or worse, Matt Millen. Why not go back to an era of the Lions winning to welcome a new era of the Lions winning this year? Oh yeah, the Lions are going to the playoffs this year.
