Doesn't it seem like some teams, like the Jets and Bucks, seems to change the look of their uniforms fairly often, while other teams' jersey and logos, like the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers, have changed very little?
If you're around my age, you might also remember when the NFL was a lot more strict in terms of the jersey numbering system. When I was kid, it was very clearly laid out...quarterbacks and kickers wore 1-19, running backs and defensive backs wore 20-49, Linebacker wore 50-59, offensive and defensive linemen wore 60-79 or 90-99, and wide receivers/tight ends wore 80-89. At some point, wideouts were allowed to rock numbers in the teens, but this was largely it for years and years.
Then a few seasons ago, those rules were relaxed even more to more resemble college football, with receivers, defensive back, running backs and linebackers being allowed to wear single digits or numbers in the teens.
Now, we've got yet another change, as starting this season, position players will now be allowed to rock no number....and by no number, I mean, rock a ZERO!
