Here we are ladies and gentlemen, We have made it all the way through the league and stand at the door of the Black and Blue Division: the NFC North. The beginnings of professional football were made here.
Tough defensive football when you think of these teams – Bears, Lions, Packers, and Vikings. Also something in common is the timelessness of all the uniforms. Obviously, if you know me, the bottom and top spots are locked in and pre-determined. This is a race for second and third honest.
4. Green Bay Packers
I’m not wasting your time, nor am I wasting mine. Terrible.
3. Detroit Lions
I chose to put the Lions in the three spot because they have made a couple changes lately. I don’t want to say they are bad changes because they aren’t bad. The color is unique and blends well. The all grey alternate really isn’t bad either. I just miss the old school lion logo. The one without the flow in the lion. That logo I have an affinity for because it actually took me longer than I would like to admit to figure out the two paws up were not the lions mouth. This one makes it easier to make out the details of the lion and I just liked the challenge and knowing I was an idiot.
2. Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings look is so awesome to me. I love the colors and I love the horns on the helmets. They resemble actual Viking helmets, which helps sell the point. They have unique numbers. I don’t hate the all purple alternate. Also, their stadium on the outside actually resembles a Viking ship. I don’t know if that factors into the uniforms, but I just would like to point that out.
1. Chicago Bears
Of course I saved the best for last. If I need to explain any further, you need to read more of these blogs and listen to the podcast. You need to know me.
I think we all know what’s going to happen here… I will say the Bears and Vikings COULD compete in the wild card race, but it would take a lot of impressive wins to do so. The Lions, I hope, will have a fun season too.
