The Chicago Bears unveiled their new throwback that they will wear during the 2019 season on Friday. How does this uniform rank among their throwbacks they have worn?
In an unveiling Friday afternoon the Chicago Bears did what most other teams did and had a party to show of their new threads for the upcoming season. The Bears had Kyle Fuller come out in the throwback uniform that the Bears will wear twice this year. The cool thing about the unveiling ist hat it was the first time the rest of the team had seen it also. Uniforms are all the rage right now and the Bears tried to hype it up as much as possible.
The Bears are one of the few teams in the NFL (Steelers, Colts, and Cowboys are in the same boat) that have a great uniform that should not be messed with too much. Thankfully the Bears are just introducing a throwback and not trying to mess with their normal look. If we were going to rank the best uniforms in the NFL, Chicago would definitely be at the top of most lists, if not number one.
This makes the fourth different uniform that the Bears will wear this year that we are aware of. They have their normal home and away uniforms along with their throwback orange jerseys. It is possible that they wear a color rush uniform this year, but my guess is that they don’t. Those uniforms are usually only worn on Thursday’s and while the Bears play three games on Thursdays this year they most likely won’t wear that uniform.
They play the first Thursday to open the season and my guess is they will wear their normal home uniforms. They already announced they will wear the new throwback on Thursday against the Cowboys. The other Thursday is at Detroit on Thanksgiving and they will probably wear their normal away uniforms like they did last year.
With any new uniform announced there is going to be people who love it and people who really really hate it. So where does this new look rank compared to other throwbacks? Let’s take a look at what they have worn and give some thoughts on each.
