Well, my reasoning may be odd, but here it is.
The colors were wrong. I mean, you guys were fighting the "redcoats", right? So shouldn't the uniform have been blue?
I think you've got it right, now, though I'm not sure how much silver they were sporting in those days.
The guy on the helmet just looked a little silly. Plus, he was hiking the ball. That's not exactly the most glamorous pose in sports.
And the white helmet was a little redundant in that particular division. Back then, all four teams had white helmets. It's good to see a little variety.
As far as good/bad stuff in general goes, I like a mix of the old & the new.
Good "classic" uniforms: The Blue & White LA Rams. The Gold ruined it. The Cards, (without the stupid red pants.) The Giants, The Cowboys, The Falcons (before they started wearing the stupid gray pants), The Redskins (with the Spearhead - not the nickle Indian), da' Bears, the Chiefs (aso without the stupid red pants), the Raiders, the Saints, and the Powder Blue Chargers.
Good "new" uniforms: The Pats, The Seahawks, the Broncos, The Bucs, the Eagles. Also the Vikes, who made modest but tasteful changes.
Beyond hope: The Packers, the Jets & the Bengals.
Looking Stupid: the Browns in orange pants, the current Bills unis, the Jags and the Dolphins in any version.
indifferent: Pittsburgh, the Ratbirds, the Colts, the Panthers, 49ers, Lions & anyone I forgot.
