    The latest Uniform Power Ranking from ESPN should not be a surprise to Chicago Bears fans. The classic Navy, Orange, and White of the Chicago Bears is Number One.

    The Chicago Bears sit atop the latest Power Rankings from ESPN. Their Uni Watch column ranks every uniform in professional sports, and the Bears are #1 for the NFL.
    Here's what they had to say about the classic look of the Bears.
    Moving the TV numbers from the sleeves to the shoulders last season did no great harm to what is still the cream of the NFL crop. No other team looks as consistently sharp week after week, no matter if they're playing at home or on the road. Key element: the striped socks, which tie the whole look together. Other NFL teams could learn from that.
    I'd like to just throw this out there while we're discussing uniforms. I think the Chicago Bears throwbacks are by far the best of all the throwbacks.
    The Bears have even sported the crisp white on white look on occasion, and while I don't share the same enthusiasm as Bill Swerski over the look, I do like it. One other thing, the navy tops and bottoms should never be worn together again by the Bears.
    My only issue with the ESPN article was their inclusion of the typical mainstream media Jay Cutler sad sack photo when showing the Chicago road unis. That is why I included a more flattering road uni pic of Cutler above.
    What do you think about the ESPN Uni Watch rankings?
    Who do you feel has the best throwbacks?
    Do you even care about the fashion element of the NFL?

    I think all of the classics (Bears, GB, Pitt, Indy, Raiders) could claim the top spot, and all deserve the top 5 at least. I think what sets the Bears apart is our color scheme (orange and blue are complementary colors, and more appealing to the eye), and our unique number font.

    I love the color scheme, and the classic, but I've never been one to hold back b/c it's "how it's always been". If they were to change the helmet or uni's I wouldn't mind either, as long as colors are navy and orange and white I'm down.

    Then again I was one of the wierd ones that liked the 1994 throw backs...but the idea that the jersey has always looked the same is as false as the Bears have always played on grass.

    Please get rid of the orange Halloween uniforms...just use the throwbacks if you need more orange.

    The winner of the "greatest NFL Uni of all time" was the 2012 Carolina Panthers Black on Black alternate. Which they have worn a grand total of once. SMH.

    Top 3 best uniforms in football:

    1. Cowboys
    2. Bears
    3. Colts
    Honorable mention: Bills.

    Just my opinion.
