Rams Wearing Throwbacks Vs. Saints


Thanks to a fan vote at the team’s website, the Rams have determined that they will wear their throwback uniforms on October 30 against the New Orleans Saints. The throwbacks will be the blue and yellows from the Greatest Show On Turf days, so assuming we have a 2011 season, we can look forward to that date. Personally, I wish the team would break out the really old-school blue and white combo, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to be happening this season. From what I have been told in the past, I believe a team is only allowed one throwback jersey, but I don’t have 100% confirmation on that. Either way, we know the team will take on the Saints in the blue and yellows and they are expected to wear those uni’s one more time during the season on a week that has yet to be determined.

I like the throwbacks, and I especially like the fact that we are wearing them against the Saints. For those of you new to the St. Louis Rams, you may not know about the intense rivalry between the Rams and Saints that was at its peak not too long ago. The two teams used to be in the same division, and some of my most fond memories as a young Rams fan included going to see the Saints and Rams battle it out once a year. The rivalry is what really made me fall in love with professional football and Rams football, so although the franchises are completely different now compared to what they were, and most of the players are gone from those teams, I still love it when the Saints come to town.

    I am a Saints ticket holder from 1970 and also remember all the great games the Saints and Rams played twice every year. However, the Saints only have one throwback uni.. the one that goes back to the early years when the Rams wore the blue and whites. I would LOVE to see the Rams show up in those.

      I couldn’t agree more on the Blue and White uniforms. Regardless of what the teams are wearing, it’s always fun to see the Rams and Saints lock it up on the field. I just hope the Rams have more luck this year than we did last season in The Big Easy.

    Jimrip, brilliant idea! The blue and whites are classic and last year the blue and yellow made an appearance so it is time for the blue and whites. Too bad the good idea is not from the Rams and it sure is funny that it is a Saint’s fans idea. :)
