DDFP 104


It’s an embarrassment of riches for the #DDFP NFL mid-season episode thanks to Chargers LB @ShaunPhillips95 (who talks the arm of Philip Rivers, Bolts’ unis and favorite cheeses);  NFL Fantasy Live colleague @Akbar_Gbaja (who talks Vick, Philly’s O-line,and Chip Kelly’s chances of NFL success on a new installment of “Inside/Out”); ‘Around The League scribes @MarcSesslerNFL & @DanHanzus (who discuss the only eight teams with a legit shot at winning it all); and Handsome @NFLUKHank returns from England to talk rookie QBs and shares a bounty of British chips/crisps.

The Uniform Monitor*: Week Four

(Matthew Emmons/US Presswire)

It’s that time of the year again for the NFL to show its support for breast cancer awareness by mixing in some pink trim with team uniforms.  From a philanthropic standpoint, it’s a no-brainer.  From a fashion standpoint, though, it’s a nightmare.  What a shame the American Cancer Society didn’t opt for a nice, light grey over hot pink … but hindsight is 20/20.  You might not want the gift of sight, though, if you’re watching Washington at St Louis.  Pink doesn’t exactly go well with the maroon and gold of the Redskins or the metallic gold of the Rams.  Some other sartorial notes:

Most Confusing NFL Game of the Week – Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys

As if two teams wearing the same basic color scheme isn’t perplexing enough, both teams’ QBs wear number 9.  Fortunately, the flak jacket helps us identify Romo.

Most Confusing College Game of the Year – The Scrimmage Bowl: Nebraska at Wisconsin

Thank goodness for helmet logos.  I’ve never seen two teams with such similar getups.  Double lines on the pants, double lines on the arms, red facemasks.  The only two matchups that’d trump this one in terms of continuity would be Iowa vs the Steelers and Duke vs the Colts.

Uniform Matchup of the Day – San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles

The pickings are slim this weekend, but the Niners always look good since going to back to their classic getups.  The Eagles would do well to follow that lead and return the 1960 getups they wore in Week 1 last season, but the current version is still relatively snappy.

Fashion Terror Alert – Miami Dolphins at San Diego Chargers

Let’s hope the ‘Fins don’t wear those turquoise pants, especially if the Bolts break out their powder-blue jerseys.

* If you’re not aware, I aspire to one day become the official Uniform Monitor for all sports.  In the meantime, I work gratis for two reasons: 1. I have a deep passion for great uniforms, and 2. I have an equally strong distaste for some of the visual atrocities imposed on our eyeballs by various teams across the sports landscape (I’m talking about you, Jacksonville Jaguars, Seattle Seahawks, Oregon Ducks, Oklahoma City Thunder, Anaheim Ducks, et al).
