There are no plans for the Vikings to put in an alternate jersey, but hell I'm bored and the way I see it this thread will be just as legit as the "Belicheck to Minnesota" one.

Anyways, 14 of the 32 teams wear alternate Jerseys during the year, meaning it is a fast rising trend. Which Jersey would you like to see us rock if we go that route?

i have a black one, but i'd say Gold because we're not called the Purple 'nd golf for nothing right?

I would go with Gold, I dont really have a reason I just think it would be better than Black.

Gold would look crazy. I'd go with black, but I would at least want to see a gold one first.

I used to have a gold one.
They are sharp.
Too bad I had to get rid of it.
The player got traded.

Both were made at some point. I preferred the gold.

Thanks for the link JJ.
I have never seen either before. I was thinking gold until I saw the picture of it.
Reminds me of the Lakers and thats just too close to home.


I think the D would look badass in black.

Black & Blue.........as in the black & blue division.

Why only two choices? Where is "OTHER"?

There is no "other" because "other" is a cop out. I have seen black and gold vikings jerseys, but I have seen blue, that's for sure.

The other is not a cop out. The yellow & black ones you saw were based of old style jerseys from 2 or more years ago.

Remember the gold & black Moss jerseys?

So if they were to come about, they'd be redesigned by the team anyway.

That being said, any color is game.

black would look much more intimidating and I think would be the best choice.
When I knew the Vikings were getting new jerseys i was hoping for some black if not mainly black.
I think it l;ooks sharp along with purple and gold as well.

Red.

From the blood of our on field opponents that made the mistake of wearing an alternate jersey!

How about a throwback? And make them permanent not alternate.... I liked the new jerseys at first, but Ive realized how much better I like the old ones, especially the old road ones. The old look is just so much more classic looking.

But I understand thats not going to happen, but one thing that could happen, and should happen is we completely eliminate the purple pants. The white on white looks a million times better.

It's clear that white on white is better, and we play better while wearing it.

Because a throwback is a throwback & an alternate is an alternate.

If you wear it on the field for a game and it's not your standard uniform isn't it considered an alternate?

"The NFL rule states that a team may wear their third jersey only twice a year. There are no rules on wearing alternate pants."

So we could wear white pants every game!

Don't they still have a "Throwback" day?

Irregardless what I'm trying to say is that the 3rd jersey could be either a throwback or an alternate jersey. To me they are two different things.

I guess I was just talking about third jerseys as a general topic, you were being more specific... whatever though, it doesn't matter at all.

And as far as throwback day goes, I think they just do that for the 4 teams playing on thanksgiving.

I can't wait until the vikings wear the jerseys from 2 years ago as throwbacks!

Seriously, we've bin there done that, lets go back.
Imagine how good Peterson and T-Jack would look in the old unis.

I believe we did wear white pants every game but 2 in the regular season.
(Could be mistaken though)

Either way, when I first saw the purple pants I thought they might be cool.
After seeing them on the field though, I must admit I like the white/white much better.

I would like to see a side view of that.
Maybe with a purple stripe?

That's exactly why I didn't make it an option. The question is, what color would you like the alternate to be?
not
Would you like an alternate?

I'd like to say Gold, since black seems to be over-used in today's NFL... but after looking at the old gold jerseys...I guess I'm going to have to say black!

The most popular alternate jerseys in the NFL are black (JAX, PHI, DET, BAL,) and strangely enough Orange (CIN, DEN, CHI, MIA)
Silver: Patriots
Red: Texans, Falcons, Giants
Light Blue: Titans, Chargers, Panthers

Gold would be pretty original, which is why it got my vote.

But our gold is really more like yellow... and a jersey that is primarily yellow would look completely ridiculous IMO.

Our "throwback" jersey's weren't that much of a "throwback" until we redesigned the uniforms last year.

A good point Neo. I was clamoring for them to change the yellow to gold in the redesign didn't happen.

Atlanta's alternates are the red, right?

If we had to have an alternate, I would vote for gold, because our colors are Purple, Gold, and White.

But personally I don't see the need.
Our new unis are kick ass the way they are (except for the purple pants with purple socks - still need to change that).
And our white on white away are easily the best in the league!

Sorry, everytime I see your name I think of the matrix. You got me thinking what a yellow jersey would look like.

Hey, at least if the Packers ever choose to get alternates, they will be ugly!
