back in the day when the Chargers were under the direction of Coach C. When we had "lay down Danny" Charlie Joyner, John J....we played FOOTBALL.
Lately, not so much.
Gone are the days of these unis and gone are the days of solid Charger football I'm afraid.

Steve L.:

They probably make a LOT more money in replica jersey sales than they spend in producing the jerseys once a year. That's the reason for the whole "throwback" thing: something else to market.

Those sure were the good ole days for sure.
Air Coryell football. Best season tickets I ever bought!! That's back when they were actually affordable for the average right wing fish out of water from the left coast like me (snicker)
The uniforms were ok....I sorta liked them really....
SD sure had it going on back then...
Don't get to watch much AFCW football here on the east coast. Sad for me.
Even more sad that I don't have hockey now either.

Chris Berman had it right: The Chargers throwback uniforms are the best uniforms in the history of sports. The helmets are awesome too. (And I'm a Giants fan!)

POWER BLUES ARE THE BEST !!... (Below threshold)


And the helmets rock too! You guys who think these uniforms are ugly are FOOLS! Based on color-scheme, originality, design, and creativity alone.....there are no other uniforms ever designed that were this original and bold !

GO CHARGERS! Powder Blue Throwback Unis ROCK !!!
