Seattle Seahawks Third Jerseys For 2009 Are Lime Green And A Disaster

Sweet Merciful Crap! The Seahawks' Third Jerseys For The 2009 Season Are Awful.

4/1/09 in NFL   |   100%InjuryRate   |   1283 respect

Despite the fact that this post is going up on April Fool's Day, it is not an April Fool's joke. It seems that yesterday at some point, designs for the Seattle Seahawks' new alternate jersey leaked out. I first found the jersey on 4chan, but confirmed that it first appeared on Green Glare, a well known Seahawks blog, on March 31st (so not an April Fool's joke). UniWatch also confirmed that this jersey has been rumored to be coming out for months, so here you go, the third jersey for your 2009 Seattle Seahawks.



Good lord those things are ugly. It'll be like a lime green popsicle running down the field. Or a giant booger.


You know what, I'll just stop now.

But seriously, I can't be the only one that thinks these Seahawks jerseys give the old Tampa Bay Bucs ones a run for the money.


Man, I tell you what. It's one close call in my mind. Also, I'm really hungry for sherbet right about now.

Uh... Dolla Dolla Bills Ya'll... You Don't Have To Be A Rocket Scientist, Wait, Your Saying It Wasn't About The Money, Well Then Cincy Isn't exactly A Perenial Playoff Contender As Well, Seattle although an exception with the last year were 4x NFC West Champions, Not Exactly The Best Division But It's Not Like They Were 7-9 When Thay Won Each Year.

haha if that's true, then it was an especially good one - especially since I've actually seen these as fan jerseys so it wasn't beyond my comprehension. Funny.

And I also liked the old Tampa unis...

This is what happens when you use a pack of Life Savers as a reference to select your color scheme.

The Packers and Jets became "green" with envy upon seeing the new Seahawks alternate jerseys.

Too bad these weren't out before we did that article showcasing the ugliest NFL jerseys in history, this would've easily been top 3.

Uhm...I'm sure that's on the "to-do list", as with any team.

Maybe they should focus on improving their team rather than the uniforms. How many wins did they have last season? Like, negative 24?

Seahawks sure could use some luck

4/1/09   |   celticfc411   |   51 respect

i honestly don't think those jerseys are bad at all. And if they can match the performance of Seattle Sounders FC (through the first two weeks anyways) no one will be complaining

4/1/09   |   biskit67

Orange is my favorite color, so I always loved those jerseys. These new Seattle uniforms are beyond awful.

4/1/09   |   Mols12

no kidding.....

Those third jerseys might become the primary ones if they help the qb pick out receivers downfield...

That's the most turbl jersey in the history of EVAR.

I'll bet they got they're idea from the sounders' jerseys.

At least now people will pay attention to the seahawks...

As a Seahawks fan.... I'm ashamed of these new uniforms.  Did Deion Branch design these awful things?!?

You're in luck - the Bucs are supposedly going to play a game this season in the Bucco Bruce Cremesicle unis!

However, those lime green unis for the Seahawks are just wrong....

No Eric - I won't faint. Thank goodness they're the THIRD jersey and I won't have to see it on a regular basis.
No Scott - I won't be buying a Houshmandzadeh jersey...I'd like to see how he works out on my team before I decide to get him traded, injured, force him into retirement...

I'm gettin a Housh jersey!

yeah, but it is Seattle, and the city is clearly trying to conform every team to similar colors; just wait, the Mariners are going to have lime green alternates as well soon enough...and that's why the basketball team was truly kicked out of town...not because the owner had roots in Oklahoma ;)

I like the current ones but the team has said "Don't be surprised to see championship colors".  I think a version of the old 80's ones could do well.  I do like the gold addition to the oval, so maybe they lose the dark garnet and go back to the red.  Either way, my WIllis jersey is on hold until after Draft Day.

I absolutely love their 80's jerseys. They just scream "winners".

It doesn't matter how good the team is... when they're wearing those uniforms, it just SEEMS like they're dominant, even if they're not.

I hadn't realized that the Lions "new" unis had already leaked.  Hopefully the Niners, Phins, and Jags unveil some better jerseys than the Lions and Seahawks have.
