Brown Jerseys to Return For Majority of 2012 Home Games

92.3 The Fan’s Daryl Ruiter has the report on the Browns’ uniform choice-

“The Browns will wear their brown jerseys for both preseason home games as well as the final 5 regular season home games this season.

The team will wear all white for the first 3 home games as well as all road games in which the home team elects to wear their dark jerseys.”

Last year of course, the team wore all white the entire season. With nothing exciting happening on the field, discussions digressed, and comparisons were made between the vanilla (and largely uneffective) offense, and the all-white vanilla uniforms.

Team president Mike Holmgren had mentioned the Brown uniforms would be back this year in interviews, but we were uncertain until now as to the degree.

    Wonder when the wins will return…

    But on topic, where are the orange pants??? Bring ’em back!

  • Gren

    I want the Orange jerseys! I sound so ungrateful for not having to suffer through all whites again but, I loved those Orange ones.

  • Kildawg

    This might be a bit outlandish, but both alt orange tops, go back to orange pants home and away. This would have us orange-out Baltimore or Pittspuke. (Not ‘kill-me’ orange, but more of a burnt orange.)

  • The_Matt_Of_Akron

    I thought the all-whites were more “flag of surrender” than “vanilla”.

  • mgbode

    our orange is not burnt. and no pumpkin uniforms please. brown pants (w/ piping) + orange jersey OR orange pants (w/ piping) + brown jersey both can be good looks.

    orange (pants) + orange (jersey) + orange (helmet) = directional college uni

  • TSR3000

    You ppl that want orange pants and/or orange jerseys are just flat out wrong.

  • Natedawg86

    OK, the brown jerseys are now signed and in camp. Any status on the holdout of the orange pants?

  • Natedawg86

    We should do brown pants, orange jersey and green helmet for the Oct 28th game before halloween

  • JK

    Sign me up for the orange pants.. Looks good w white & brown tops.

    Orange jerseys can stay in the closet where they belong.

  • MrCleaveland

    How about the orange pants for the six AFC North games and white pants the rest of the time?

  • Jack

    Can someone explain this to me? Seriously. If the fans want it, why the hardline? Is there some disadvantage to the brown threads I don’t know about. What compels them to keep the whites for 3/8? Such a weird thing.

  • thepaledragon

    Many NFL teams choose to wear white at home during September, presumably because it is still hot during the games, and they believe the white uniforms will be cooler.

  • Jack

    I guess that makes sense. Thanks.

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Glad to hear this although I don’t understand the need to have the first three home games feature the horrible all whites but it’s a start at least. The brown jerseys/orange pants are a classic like I’ve said in the past save them for when this team is good again.

  • Well if I’m wrong, then I don’t want to be right. Bring back the orange!!

  • Return of the (Alex) Mack

    I miss the Orange Jerseys.
