Titletown throwback: Packers will wear 1940s-era uniforms for Oct. 18 game
The Green Bay Packers will be bringing a bit of a Curly Lambeau look to the field named after him this season.
The team announced that for its Oct. 18 home game against the San Diego Chargers, the Packers will wear a throwback uniform patterned after the ones Green Bay wore from 1937-49. Lambeau coached the Packers during that span, winning NFL championships in 1939 and 1944.
Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy, Jordy Nelson and crew will sport the look worn by such Packers legends as Arnie Herber, Tony Cadadeo and Don Hutson.
The Packers have worn similar uniforms before, back in 1994 for the NFL's 75th anniversary season.
No word yet on what uniforms the Chargers, who didn't come into existence until 1960, will wear.
