Packers Wearing Throwback Uniforms Week 7 vs. Browns

The Green Bay Packers will be wearing their throwback uniforms circa 1929 for the Week 7 game of the 2013 season against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday Oct. 20 at Lambeau Field with kickoff set for 3:25 p.m. CT.

According to the official release from the Packers:

The Packers have worn the third jersey twice previously, in Week 13 of 2010 against San Francisco and in Week 6 of 2011 against St. Louis, both at Lambeau Field. The Packers beat the 49ers, 34-16, and the Rams, 24-3. The Packers did not wear the alternate uniforms during the 2012 season.

The third jersey is based on the Packers’ 1929 jerseys, which were blue with the jersey number in a gold circle on the front. The modern re-creation uses a larger gold circle and also includes a full-sized number on the back along with the player’s last name, to conform with NFL uniform regulations.

The alternate uniforms also feature tan pants and a solid brown helmet, representing the leather helmets that players of that era wore. The Packers won the first of their 13 NFL championships in 1929.

Coincidentally, the Cheesehead TV sponsored Throwback Weekend will be held the weekend of the Browns game. Check out the official website of Throwback Weekend for more details.

There is a lot of tradition in the NFL but the older uniforms are as ugly as a rake. The only one that stands out is the San Diego Chargers 60's jersey's, the best by far. Instead of the ugly ones to date for the Packers, whey not go back to the 50's Blue and Gold ?

I just want gray face asks on the regular helmets. Is that too much to hope for.
