The Worst Uniform in the History of Every NFL Franchise

As Nike has just revealed their new uniforms for the upcoming 2012 season, we were reflecting on how far uniforms have come over the years in the NFL.

The longer that each franchise has been in existence, the more versions and changes they have gone through, some of which were more painful to look at than others.

Our goal today is to identify the worst uniform in the history of every NFL franchise.

I'm pretty sure this year's throwback "bumblebee" uniforms were the deathknell for the Steelers' playoff hopes.   ^-^

It's definitely hard to beat the Bumblebee Look for the worst NFL uniform of all time. It made the Steelers look like convicted felons, which as a matter of history would have been far more appropriate for the Cincinnati Bengals...
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

My personal worst uniform was the old Dolphins powder baby blues. My girlfriend at the time was a die-hard Dolphins fan, because she "just loved their uniforms".

The very worst old uniform is the original Tampa Bay "Gay Blade" look, and the pink motif that came with it.  The team has improved significantly since they switched to the Jolly Roger pirate look.

But the Steelers Bumblebee look is a close second.  I would point out that those uniforms worked well in the days of black and white television, when the stripes were the only way to tell who was who on the field.  Color television eliminated the need for the extreme contrast necessary for black and white broadcasts.
