The Giants debuted their white Color Rush uniforms in Week 16 of the 2016 season, when they traveled to take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night. The uniforms proved popular and are back for the 2017 season.
This year the Giants’ will have their only Thursday game when they take on the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving. Since that game was not designated a “Color Rush” game by the NFL, the Giants were free to pick when they wanted to wear the uniforms.
“After talking with ownership and [head coach Ben] McAdoo, it seemed to be let’s do Color Rush for a game the fans are going to be excited for and amped up for,” Giants equipment director Joe Skiba said. “That’s definitely the Dallas home game. We wanted to wear them for a home game because last year we were on the road in Philadelphia. It’s a homage to the 80s and giving it a modern slant.”
This marks the first time since the 2000 season that the Giants will wear a white uniform at home (typically white has been Big Blue’s road color). The uniforms also feature the classic “GIANTS” logo on the helmet rather than the lower-case “ny”
Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing these uniforms become the Giants’ official road uniforms for all their away games. How do you feel about seeing the Giants take on the rival Cowboys in a game that could decide the division in their throwback uniforms?
