Remember a few years back when we were in Jacksonville, and they decided to wear their away uniforms so that we had to wear dark red in the heat? Did anyone notice that the Titans did the same thing last week? Wore their away uniforms so we'd have to wear red in the heat?

When the Colts were here for the home opener, WHY THE HECK DIDN"T GUNTHER MAKE THE COLTS WEAR THEIR *NAVY BLUE* UNIFORMS WHILE THE CHIEFS WORE *WHITE*?!?!?!

I know it wouldn't have impacted the skill level of the players any, but it may have helped to make the Colts a little more fatigued and the Chiefs a little less so in the 4th quarter.... I was wondering this as soon as I turned on the game, but I never got around to posting it until now. Uniform color doesn't seem like a big deal, but in an extremely close game, if one side is more fatigued than the other it *just* might be enough to do it....

I bet it was to show everyone how "tough" we were.... Hey Gun! I've got an idea! Let's go show everyone how tough we are by smashing ourselves in the head with bricks!

Yosef - LOL... now why would we do something that Frerotte already did?

It may have been smarter for us to wear white, but is blue really any worse than white for sun-absorbtion? I know you didn't hint that it was, but in previous threads it was stated that we should have made Indy wear the hotter blue uniforms. Blue doesn't really strike me as hot.

Anyway, I assume they didn't do it against Indy because they wanted to keep the red pants under wraps for another week.

GMan - Yes, blue is hotter. White reflects all light and blue reflects only a small portion of the spectrum. The light that is not reflected is absorbed.

Would it have made a difference in the game? I doubt it, but any psychological edge is better than none.
