The Detroit Lions have decided to sit out on the opportunity of bringing a new alternate uniform into the arsenal this season. However, many fans have been speculating on what the Lions could potentially choose for their alternate look for next season.
I believe the franchise already has the perfect option.
That option is a throwback to the good ‘ole days. I'm talking about taking a trip back to the 1990s.
A 90's Throwback Is The Perfect Alternate Uniform For The Detroit Lions
If you're old enough to remember, picture a time when you were listening to Blind Melon on your stereo while playing Madden '96 on your brand new PlayStation. Continue to imagine that delicate moment of your life when you first saw your Detroit Lions take the field with the best graphics for a video game you had ever seen at that point in your life. What jerseys was the team rocking when the game finally kicked off in the Silverdome? I think we both already know the answer, life was good.
It's the memories of seeing Barry Sanders carve up a defense like a fresh turkey brought straight out of the oven on Thanksgiving. It's the moments of seeing the likes of Chris Spielman and Dennis Gibson be the heartbeat of the Motor City defense.
The silver helmets popping off the television screens as the blue tops dance along the sidelines as the perfect mate to the silver pants look that is iconic to the city of Detroit. This throwback look is enough even to make the great Tim Taylor salivate at the thought of seeing its return.
The time has come for the Lions and ownership to bring back the look that defined a generation. A simple choice that will, without question, have fans of the team begging for more nostalgia on gameday.
I can already see Barry walking out to midfield during pre-game, repping the blue top. Can we go ahead and get this set in motion? I'm ready to run through a brick wall; Hey Siri, play Return of The Mack!
