They wore them last year:



The only difference is, a new rule passed by the NFL this year prohibited the 'skins from wearing that cool looking "leather" helmet. Instead, they were forced to wear a version of their modern helmet with the throwbacks.



I actually love the throwback unis and wish the 'skins would just wear these all the time, but they would need to color the helmets the same darker burgundy as the jerseys. I actually prefer the helmets without the stripes.

Indeed.

All of this whining about how they need to retain the pejorative team name is pretty hard to take.
