Detroit Lions 1948 concept uniforms will have you seeing red [Photos]

Let's hop in the time machine and travel all the way back to 1948 when our Detroit Lions went 2-10 in the NFL West Division.

During that season, the Lions were outscored 407-200 by their opponents under the leadership of head coach, Bo McMillin.

Many Lions fans don't know that the team once wore colors other than Honolulu blue and silver but during that horrendous season, they wore scarlet and black.

Luis Fernando (@nagiants40 on Twitter) has created some full 1948 Detroit Lions concept uniforms and as you can see below, the colors are painful to look at.

The following season, the Lions went back to the Honolulu blue and silver, and let's hope they never go back to the scarlet and black!

Earlier in the offseason, Detroit Lions team president Rod Wood told reporters that the Lions are not making a uniform change in 2022 but they have begun looking into the process for the 2023 season.

“Nothing for this year,” Wood told reporters. “We’re actually starting a process to look at a possible change for next year. It’s really like a year-plus lead time, so we just convened a committee. I know we get a lot of things tweeted at us and suggestions about what fans want, so we catalog all those and we’ll take them under advisement.”

But if you are hoping the Detroit Lions bring back the colors they used when they were the Portsmouth Lions, Wood made it pretty clear that is not something that will be happening any time soon.

“I’ve never really thought about it,” Wood said. “I think the answer is probably we’re focused on Detroit and the Detroit Lions and not the history (in) Portsmouth.”

Nation, which changes would you like to see for the Lions uniform in 2023?
