- MADDEN NFL 17 PREVIEWS PACKERS' YELLOW COLOUR RUSH UNIFORM
Final season, NFL teams had been allowed - but not mandated - to wear solid-color uniforms for Thursday Night games. The movement known as Color Rush has now hit the league with full force, since it has turn out to be a requirement for the 2016 season to adorn these monochrome getups for the mid-week contests.
The Green Bay Packers, who certainly chose to not put on one of these in their only non-holiday Thursday Evening game last season in Detroit, happen to be tabbed to wear gold (additional accurately yellow) when they play the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field in week 7.
Thanks to Madden NFL 17, having said that, we've got our initial feasible check out what these uniforms may well look like from an officially-licensed NFL supply. Our thanks visit Twitter user @DomSanity27 for posting this video and for Packers running back Eddie Lacy for retweeting it:
To become sincere, they don't look as awful as I was anticipating. Now, that may just be for the reason that the opposing group inside the video is the Saints, who are wearing their white jerseys. When we see them take the field opposite the all-navy Chicago Bears, that may very well be a distinct story.
The one particular thing I appreciate listed below are the socks. Those thick horizontal stripes basically look pretty terrific, if you ask me.
Not surprisingly, take this having a grain of salt - Madden had integrated a metallic gold jersey as a Packers alternate various years ago, and in line with a number of APC readers, this particular set has been within the game for any little even though. It's entirely likely that this is just the EA Sports team's imagining of a solid-color alternate that just occurs to match what we count on the Packers to wear within a few weeks. Nonetheless, this makes me believe that maybe Green Bay's monochrome uniform is not going to be as painful to watch as after thought.
