Why the Green Bay Packers are wearing really ugly uniforms today
The Green Bay Packers will wear the team’s third jersey, a re-creation of the historic 1929 uniform worn by the franchise’s first NFL championship team, during Sunday’s Packers-Cleveland game. Due to new NFL helmet guidelines, the team this year will utilize its regular gold helmet without the logo and stripes. A similar helmet arrangement was used by the Packers during NFL “throwback” games in 1994 and 2001.I get history, I really do. But these uniforms are ... not ... good. I don't think I'm alone on this, either. Here are some Twitter reactions:

I'm not sure what's uglier, the Packers' throwback uniforms or Brandon Weeden's game. — Mike Coppinger (@MikeCoppinger) October 20, 2013
I see the Packers accepted the challenge for the grossest jerseys in the NFL. The Browns have been winning for years, but man... — Austin Walaszewski (@CHSfootball80) October 20, 2013
