    I wish they'd upgrade the orange uniforms. But I like our throwback uni's a lot. Bennett is a "hoot" and I like his enthusiasm. He'll help (some) to pass the boring off-season. The guy always has something to say that's funny.

    I would be okay with those sweet throwbacks being the every day Uni

    Tbh I think Bears have some of the bestlooking uniforms in the league. Not really fan of the Orange, but the home and away shirt looks pretty good to be.

    No. Bears have always had one of the best unis in the league. No need to change that.

    This is the NFL, not College Football. "Modern" jerseys a la Seattle and Jacksonville are just awful.

    i'm indifferent if they stay w/the same uni or they update them, in most instances it seems to work out for the team, they tend to look much better, Pats, TB, Den, Bills, but they also don't look as good as the Bears do now.

    The Bears have one of the great uniforms in the NFL. I hope they never change it. That said, I do wish they'd put a grey facemask on the current helmets, like they do on the throwbacks. I like the all-white road uni's. I hope I never see the Bears wear an orange jersey again.

    Keep the uni's the way there but introduce a alternate helmet design. Something akin to a air brushed hockey goalie style bear and the old NBA Grizzlies logo. Something like that perhaps.

    I hated the orange jerseys. Love the throwbacks and I'm not really a fan of the all white uni's.

    BLASPHEMY!!!! The orange jerseys are crap, that's for sure, but if they try to take the C off of the helmet, I'm going to level Halas Hall!!!

    It's not allowed. Teams can only wear alternate helmets with throwback jerseys. They weren't allowed to wear different helmets with current-style alternates. For example, the Panthers couldn't wear black helmets with their blue jerseys.

    It's moot, anyway. This year, the NFL decided that teams could no longer use alternate throwback helmets because the teams couldn't ensure the quality-control and upkeep of two sets of helmets. Teams now have to wear the same helmets for every game. This is the league covering its ass with the concussion scandal. The only option for teams is taking off the decals, as the Bears do when they wear their throwback jerseys. And even then, it's only allowed with a throwback look.
