The NFL on Tuesday released its “Color Rush” jerseys, which feature bold colors designed to pop on the screen as you enjoy the league’s Thursday night tilts through a new and exciting prism!
OK, so these are new jerseys are solely designed to make money and give you incentive to watch that dumb Thursday game you don’t really care about unless you have fantasy players in it or money on it.
It’s all about perspective.
No matter how you look at these uniforms, it’s fair to say most of them are bad. That is why I, a fashion maven who has purchased approximately 40 percent of his clothing including three pairs of cargo shorts from Old Navy, is ranking all 32 uniforms. Six teams — Houston, Cleveland, Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and the New York Jets — won’t wear their special dark jerseys because their opponent is already wearing theirs and it would be bad for TV. It seems like Nike and the NFL could have coordinated this better, but what do I know? I shop at Old Navy.
Enjoy the salt from the Texans PR staff:
Another side note: Teams that have color rush jerseys won’t wear them when playing on Thanksgiving, because the NFL doesn’t want to disrespect the memory of the blandly dressed Pilgrims.
At least, that could be the reason. Reason and logic don’t exist in large doses around the NFL, so you won’t be seeing Washington, Dallas, Detroit, Minnesota, Pittsburgh or Indianapolis this season, which is a shame or blessing depending on the uniform.
There won’t be tons of commentary on this list, since you’re just going to get mad that your team is too low and that other team is too high.

Nothing says “color rush” like a swath of dark blue. Feel the rush!
