Thursday is color rush, all one color unis, and Packers probably didn't want all green or gold so they went with white. Glad they finally looked more normal.

Good game for the Pack, especially in their white uniforms.

I like them. Did anybody else liked the Packers' white uniforms at home?

Chicago @ Green Bay – At the risk of repeating ourselves… “Nobody comes into THIS house… without paying the price!”

My above Packers pick came through, and I enter Week 7 at 1-0. Also, I had no idea those were Green Bay's Color Rush unis? I'm wondering how the NFL thinks WHITE is a COLOR?

Packers did not do color rush last year, 1st year teams could opt out, Packers did not want to do all green or all gold apparently. Packers are pretty rigid when it comes to their uniform.

They should be. All teams with long-standing classic uniforms should be. I really hope the league doesn't continue the color rush next year. Or at minimum allows the teams to opt out. I was really not a fan of that all orange look for the Broncos last week. They should have worn all white or at least white pants so it would have just looked like a throw back.

I hate the color rush uniforms. Actually, I hate TNF completely.

I'm you Calico on both points. I agree. McCarthy talked about short turnaround, practice limitations with the CBA, and fatigue and stress injuries. The Thursday product, regardless of teams, is never as good as Sunday.

Totally in agreement. Those Creamsicle color rush unis which the Dolphins wore made me nauseous!

Enough with the cutesy little outfits, and back to the classic football look!

Thursday games should be reserved for:
1) Opening night of the season
2) Thanksgiving. The night's playing football on a Thursday actually means something with history involved. Get rid of all these other Thursday night money-hungry games. The fans don't like them, the players don't like them, the coaches certainly don't like them.
