NFL 5 43 Best, worst of NFL's retro uniforms 10213186 Dressed for success? Dressed+for+success%3F NFL

No, your eyes were not deceiving you on Sunday. Those were, in fact, the Kansas City Chiefs wearing the helmets of the former Dallas Texans. And yes, they were playing the Dallas Cowboys. Oh, the irony.

Of course, the Chiefs aren't the only ones who have gone retro NFL-style. So whose throwback uniforms have been a success and whose have failed miserably? Enjoy  and cringe at the best and worst of the NFL's old-school jerseys.

Simply the best. They have retros that bring back memories of everyone from Andre Tippett to Craig James to Tony Eason (OK, the last one is a bad memory).

The red, white and blue combo makes New England look like, well, Patriots. Best part: They have home and away versions.

Hey, San Diego Padres of 1984: Eat your heart out! The Broncos made millions crave Fig Newtons in the process.

Most frustrating part: The Broncos who wore those uniforms back in 1960 were a joke. Why revisit that era when the Orange Crush duds are DYING to be worn? Rhetorical question.

We've seen and embraced the powder blues for years now (at least for a game or two). Everybody loves 'em. They're an automatic choice for Top 5 in anyone's book.

However, I will never place them at No. 1 for the simple reason that the away duds never see the light of day. Do they exist in some NFL marketing closet somewhere?

One problem here: These aren't even Jets' throwbacks! Instead, it's actually the Titans . . .

The uniforms themselves are OK, but the helmets are what elevate them to greatness. Check out the sick bill on it!

This whole Arizona State look has been going on for a few years now and really needs to stop. It feels like a different team is on the field.

How many fans in the stands do you ever see wearing these things? Would you drop over your hard-earned money for the brown-and-yellow when you could pay the same amount and go classic black-and-gold instead? I thought not.

You know what's awesome about Minny's throwbacks? They're barely noticeable . . . and that's kind of a good thing in a subtle way.

It took me until about the second quarter of this game to even know there was a difference. That's a testament to the organization for making subtle changes to an already-great uniform without completely changing the colors and fonts (See: Broncos, Denver).

San Jose State comes to Philadelphia! Again, when you have the nostalgia manifested by the success of Marky Mark as Vince Papale in Invincible, just why?

Why, oh why, go back to a uniform color and scheme absolutely NO ONE remembers??? Is this UCLA?

But the reasoning behind why an organization would change their look right after winning their only Super Bowl ('00) is befuddling. But for at least one week, the old Rams were back. Now if they could just re-sign Henry Ellard.

Oh right, they are somehow exempt from wearing their throwbacks when every other team seemingly has to make their fan base suffer (although word has it the Bucs will don the creamsicle look in a 2009 game). The problem may be that Tampa has the coolest throwbacks out there (orange and red combined is a good thing), and the league simply won't embrace its '80s heritage if the aforementioned examples are any indication.

Open letter to the NFL marketing department: Lose the Michael Vick customized dog jerseys and bring back the Steve Young Bucs instead! Or not . . .
