I think the change has to do with superstition. The fact we trounced the Iggles last time wearing the colour rush, and the Saints wearing black in 2006 - this being a more "pound -em & ground-em" type of game. I think the colour rush will come on in the NFCCG!

Super disappointing to hear that the Color Rush is a no-go. By all accounts the Saints seemed to be hyping it up. It was used on promotional material EXTENSIVELY this week. They even had a poll to pick between black-on-black and color rush, and they hadn't done a poll including color rush all season. The tickets even show the color rush uniform. I don't get it.

Oh well. Black on black is cool too. I don't think it affects much, if anything, for gameplay. I just find the color rush uniforms to be super aesthetically pleasing.

The color rush jerseys are my favorite of all time (any sport).

I had thought I saw an interview with Drew earlier in the year where he said he preferred the white jerseys. Went looking for it, found the video, and apparently need to get my ears checked. The last question in this interview he says at home he prefers the blacks.

Welp, that settles it.

BUCS LOSS - BLACK JERSEY/GOLD PANTS

COWBOYS LOSS - BLACK ON BLACK

CAROLINA LOSS - BLACK ON BLACK


I'm not liking this trend.
Yeah, it's pretty much a given now that the Saints are going to lose Sunday, because they'll be wearing the wrong colored clothes. You'd think Payton would know better than to make such an obvious mistake that dooms them to lose.

I see this repeated often but my memory is this was said about Brooks when he was here. That he thought it was easier to track receivers in the Dome.

I can't say it isn't also true for Brees, but the Saints have worn black at home quite often in the Brees era - and done some of their finest work in the black on black look.
I don’t believe there is factual basis for Brees wanting the black/black combo. I remember, he has said, he looks for the gold helmet as his moving target. it is easier to see (higher than a jersey), and the gold is more contrasting to all other team’s helmets, except say; the Niners.

The oft-repeated belief is that he prefers white jerseys. Another member posted a video in which he says he likes black at home, though no explanation is given. I don't make much of any of it.

My memory is that the white-jerseys bit originated with Brooks, though.
