Lions Do Away With the Black Jerseys

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in , ,

Tom Lewand introduced the black and blue jerseys four years ago. Today, he is scrapping them.

The Lions liked the black and blue look in 2005 when they were first introduced, but after being the epitome of a battered, black and blue franchise, the team no longer wants the jerseys as part of their Sunday wardrobe.

Kevin Jones called the jerseys "intimidating," and I agreed. I also agree with getting rid of anything ridden with Matt Millen's dirty finger prints. Anything involving him is far from intimidating. Luckily for the Lions, they wont have to get rid of much else because he was never actually present. In fact, he was always out of town, puppeteering the team while living in his PA home. (Now, he works on NBC. Hopefully, he doesn't make any proclamations about the Lions. We all know how much of a jinx job he was predicting winners during the playoffs.)

Anyway, the jersey trashing party is another great move by the Lions this off-season. Let's hope it continues now, as we have a franchise kicker to re-sign.
