This team could make anything look bad, but these simple white jerseys are flat-out awesome. The black trim on the numbers is the icing on the cake.
The legendary powder-blues are universally known as some of the greatest jerseys ever, in any sport. I actually thought so too, until I saw the Raiders one. The game earlier this year between the Raiders and Chargers, in which both teams wore their old-school unis might have been the best two-team jersey combinations that we'll ever see.
If Kerry Collins (or Vince Young, for that matter) could play like Warren Moon, it would make these uniforms complete. They looked great back in the day, and they still look pretty awesome. Nothing beats the classic oil tower on the side of the helmet.
These hearken back to the days of one Orenthal James Simpson, back when he was known for being one of the best running backs of all time, not as a criminal several times over. The Buffalo on the side, and the general simplicity is what makes these so excellent.
They probably won more games in 2007 than they did during the entire time that they originally wore these uniforms, but the Pat Patriot logo on the side of the helmet and the now-forsaken red jerseys are outstanding. The white-on-white road jerseys that they wore against the Broncos are nice, too.
The helmets are pretty cool, with the Texas silhouette on the side, a nod back to their days as the Dallas Texans. Otherwise, the jerseys are virtually the same as they are today, which is the only reason they're all the way down at #6.
Their old-school "Titans" jerseys are pretty heinous. Sometimes, they remind me of the current Steelers jerseys, which is definitely not a good thing at all.
There's no hiding the truth. While the Broncos look like the best team out of these 8, they definitely have the worst jerseys, by far. They might be among the worst 3-4 jerseys of all time, along with the Seahawks' lime green versions, and the Eagles' blue and yellow disasters.
