One Star Buffalo Bills Player Wants The Team To Bring Back the Red Helmets
I grew up watching the Buffalo Bills just as the 17-year playoff drought began, so I just barely saw the '90s uniforms and classic red helmets before the team switched to the more modern look in 2002 (you know, the red helmets with that navy blue stripe).
Then the Bills switched again to the white helmets in 2011 and that's the look they're wearing now with Josh Allen and company.
But after the NFL changed its helmet rule (allowing teams to wear two helmets in one season), that led to fans everywhere wanting NFL teams to bring back throwback looks including the Bills with their red helmets and red. white and blue jerseys from the '90s.
Bills superstar wide receiver Stefon Diggs tweeted support for the red helmets, insisting the Bills bring back the red helmets.
I know, it's photoshopped and looks it, but even so, that look on Diggs is incredible. There are images of the '90s unis with Josh Allem, too, and it looks just as sharp.
I think the Bills will bring back the red helmets, even if it's just for one or two games a season. They can start in 2022 and I for one am excited to see the red helmets again. Many fans grew up on those helmets and it would be a home run for marketing and support from the fan base.
I'm also excited for other teams' throwback uniforms too. The old silver helmets from the Seattle Seahawks. The Houston Oilers helmets for the Tennesee Titans. The red helmets for the Atlanta Falcons. How about the orange creamsicles that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wore?
Man, I cannot wait for all these uniforms to come back starting in 2022.
