Spending his entire 14-year NFL playing career with the Los Angeles Rams, pass rusher and Pro Football Hall of Famer Jack Youngblood knows a thing or two about the organization. Unfortunately for the Rams and the team's fan base, though, Youngblood is not a big proponent of the franchise's latest uniform rebrand.
“Well, the color is good, I like the metallic blue,” Youngblood recently said while laughing, via NFL Journal. “The horn is terrible. It looks like a ‘C.' When I first saw it on the logo I honestly thought it was a Charger logo.
“Now when I see it on the helmet, it just isn’t a ram horn. There is no distinct curl like a mature ram horn. I don’t know how the Rams could get that wrong. That is your symbol and it has been for what? Seventy years or more? Longer than I have been alive? It's just not us, it's not the Rams.”
Youngblood isn't alone, however, as the Rams' new-look designs were absolutely torn apart within the media and on social media when they were formally released earlier this year. Because the team's logo and design look eerily similar to something that the cross-town rival Los Angeles Chargers would wear, the reception has not been great with Youngblood now failing to give his stamp of approval as well.
On the field, the Rams are in the midst of a minor rebuild as the team notably parted ways with wide receiver Brandin Cooks and running back Todd Gurley this offseason.
