I was born in a very interesting time for a Buffalo Bills fan. I was a baby for the four consecutive Super Bowl years and didn’t really start watching the team consistently until the 17-year-old playoff drought (2000) started.
I missed seeing great players like Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Andre Reed and Bruce Smith in a Bills uniform. In fact, I only vaguely remember the Bills in their classic red helmets and ’90s uniforms.
The Bills stopped wearing these jerseys and helmets after the 2001 regular season. From 2002 to 2010, they wore the dark blue jerseys with the red helmets with dark blue stripes. In 2011, they switched to the Bills white helmets, which they still wear today.
In case you missed the news last week, the NFL sent a memo to teams saying that starting in 2022 they would be allowed to wear more than one helmet in a season, which means teams teams could finally go back to returning uniforms.
Everyone seems to want the Bills to return to the red helmets and classic red, white and blue jerseys they wore in the 90s and the first two years of the 2000s.
Photos of Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs wearing red helmets and ’90s uniforms have been around Twitter, Instagram and Facebook lately. They look fantastic!
I love what the Bills are wearing now – the white helmets look so clean … but man, I love these uniforms and it would be great if the Bills go back to wearing them for at least one or two games a season, from 2022.
Do you want the Bills to adopt these uniforms permanently?
