It makes sense that the Bears would be the first team to announce throwback uniforms because they are one of the two original teams left. The big question for the Bears is what kind of uniform will they decide to introduce to commemorate the occasion. Since the 1960s the Bears have used the same basic uniform with the team only making small changes.
Some of the really old uniforms before the 1930s are unique and there is a chance that they could go back as far as that. The team could also decide to make a completely different jersey for the occasion. It would make the most sense to go with a jersey that is mostly blue and orange and shows a bit of the history with the Bears.
This jersey will be an alternate jersey that might only be worn a few teams this year, but an educated guess would be the team will wear them when the team opens up the season against the Green Bay Packers. Instead of the Super Bowl champion opening the season it will be the league’s oldest rivalry kicking off the season on Thursday Night Football.
Stay tuned the next couple of weeks to see what the new uniform looks like.
