A Little Bit of Braisher

The Packers destroyed the Titans today at Lambeau Field, 55-7. An amazing game to watch, unless you're this guy:

It got me thinking, though, about the Titans' pants.

On the whole, I'm not a huge fan of the Titans' logos or uniforms. They're too self-conscious, too obviously a product of the 1990s. With the exception of the pants.

Simple, classic. Best of all, Braisher stripes.

It got me thinking about other teams that have used Braisher stripes on their pants but not helmets. To the Titans we can add Washington.

In past seasons, The Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams have worn Braisher stripes on their pants:

These make an appearance a couple times a season as part of their throwback uniform.

So much better than their regular look.

Between the Titans wearing Braisher stripes, the 49ers having brought theirs back a couple years ago, the Redskins making them a permanent fixture and the Rams showing them off for selected games, "Dad" Braisher's legacy is alive and well.
