Retro Jerseys - Top 5 NFL

Keeping with the theme of my personal top 5 jerseys, here are my top 5 NFL retro, or throwback you may call them, football jerseys.

1 - Johnny Unitas Baltimore Colts White Jersey Number 19 


This jersey could easily be called a shirt, instead of a football jersey.  Do you remember when football players wore long sleeve jerseys?  Would certainly impair the throws of some of today's All-Pro quarterbacks.  This jersey is a classic blue on white long sleever of quite possibly the greatest quarterback ever. 







2 - Walter Payton Chicago Bears Blue Jersey Number 34

A super cool jersey, not only because it's a Bears classic, but also because it's the jersey of my personal pick for the best running back to ever play the game.  He might not have all the stats, but boy could he ever run.....and block.....and catch.  He could run around you, over you, or through you.  Check out this YouTube video of Walter Payton.  It actually gave me chills.  AWESOME!   



3 - John Elway Denver Broncos Orange Jersey Number 7

Some might say that this color jersey is "gaudy".  I'd say it's just retro cool.  This jersey makes me recall the younger gun-slinging John Elway bringing the Broncos back against the Browns in the playoffs.  A cool jersey of one of the coolest quarterbacks of all-time.  


4 - Bart Starr Green Bay Packers Green Jersey Number 15

Ever see pictures or film of the ice bowl? This is basically the jersey that Bart Starr wore in one of the coldest, and coolest, football games ever.



75 - Dan Marino Miami Dolphins Teal Jersey Number 13

Is this jersey teal?  I don't know, whatever color it is, it's cool, and so is Dan Marino.  Another contender for best quarterback of all-time.  The dude led is so many passing categories you can't even count them all.  Stud QB with a super cool jersey.

The Top 5 NFL Jerseys?

As I did with my recent post on my top 5 NHL jerseys, I thought I'd list my top 5 current NFL jerseys. Again, this is my personal opinion. I'd like to hear your thoughts on your top 5 NFL jerseys also. Please leave a comment, thanks.

1 - Pittsburgh Steelers Black Jersey

I am not a Pittsburgh Steelers fan.  Far from it.  But........I do think that their jerseys are very cool.  The classic black and gold harkens back to the days of the Steel Curtain with the likes of "Mean" Joe Greene, Jack Lambert, Jack Ham, and Mel Blount to name a few.

2 - Tennesee Titans Dark Blue (Alternate) Jersey

For some reason, I really like the combination of the light blue shoulders on the dark blue front and back of the alternate jersey for the Tennessee Titans.  (Maybe it reminds me of my alma mater'sbasketball jersey). In any case, I like the color combo on this  jersey in addition to the cool symbol on the sleeve of the jersey.

3 - Washington Redskins White Jersey

Again, I'm not a big fan of the Washington Redskins, but I have to say I like their jerseys.  In particular, the white jerseys with the maroon (or is it garnet?) and gold on the sleeves.   Can't you just envision John Riggins plowing through a defense, or Art Monk smoking defenders while wearing this jersey?

4 - San Diego Chargers Light Blue (Alternate) Jersey

Can this jersey even be called an alternate any longer?  It seems like every time I see the Chargers playing, they are wearing this jersey.  Don't get me wrong, I don't mind it.  This jersey reminds me of seeing Dan Fouts throwing darts and bombs to his receivers, like Charlie Joiner or Kellen Winslow.  The bolts on the shoulders add to the cool retro look of this jersey. 


5 - Oakland Raiders Black Jersey

This jersey reminds me of  Howie Long , Fred Biletnikoff and Marcus Allen.  A simple, but very cool jersey.

Jersey Number of the Day - 3 - Dwayne Wade - 12-29-10

"D" Wade's jersey number 3 is honored today for his performance in the Miami Heat's 125-119 win over the Houston Rockets.  Wade put up an impressive 45 points on 17 of 24 shooting from the field and was 10 for 10 from the stripe.  The next closest scorer on the Heat was Chris Bosh with 21 points on the night.  The Heat are really jelling now and look to be unstoppable.  So much for that slow start.  Look out Celtics.

NHL Jersey Number 84 - Guillaume Latendresse

Guillaume Latendresse Autographed Jersey - ReplicaGuillaume Latendresse, playing just over three seasons with the Montreal Canadiens all while wearing jersey number 84, is the best NHL athlete to wear that jersey number.

Since being traded to Minnesota, Latendresse has only improved offensively, albeit while wearing the inverse of his jersey number with the Canadiens.

NHL Number 82 - Martin Straka

Martin Straka Autographed JerseyMartin Straka, who has worn jersey number 82 since the 1992-93 NHL season, is the best NHL athlete ever to don that sweater number. Straka made his entrance to the NHL during the 1992-93 season with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Straka was taken by the Penguins in the 1st round of the 1992 NHL draft.


Straka would score 16 points in his rookie campaign, but his breakout would come in his sophomore season when he scored 64 points in the regular season (30 goals and 34 assists). After that productive effort, Straka would be dealt to the Ottawa Senators towards the end of the 1994-95 NHL season.

The left-shooting forward would wind up spending the following season not only with the Senators, but also with the New York Islanders and Florida Panthers. Despite his team-hopping that season, Straka would manage a very respectable 43 points in 77 regular season games.

After spending one more campaign with the Panthers in 1996-97, Straka would return to the team that drafted him into the NHL. He would find stability and success during this time with the Penguins. His most productive season in Pittsburgh would be 2000-01 when he would net 27 goals while assisting on 68 more.

Through 15 NHL seasons, Straka has accumulated 717 points during the regular season and 70 during the playoffs.

He would score 28 more points in 64 games with the Oilers the following season, before being dealt to the Buffalo Sabres, where he would close out the season, scoring 10 points in 12 games.


Miroslav would spend the majority of his NHL career with the Sabres, through the 2003-04 season, never scoring less than 46 points in a regular season with Buffalo.

After the lockout season, Miroslav would sign a free-agent deal with the New York Islanders. He would spend three productive NHL seasons on the Island, racking up seasons of 66, 59 and 41 points. His last two seasons through 2009-10 were split between the Penguins and Bruins.

NHL Number 75 - Walt Poddubny

Walt Poddubny, the journeyman left-winger out of famous Thunder Bay, Ontario, was drafted in the 5th round of the 1980 NHL draft by the Edmonton Oilers.  Poddubny would spend only a brief amount of time with the Oilers, as he was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs during his rookie campaign in the 1982 season.

Poddubny's first full season in Toronto was a strong one.  He earned 59 points in 72 regular season games while wearing the blue and white sweater during the 1982-83 NHL season.  The next three seasons however, Poddubny appeared in only half of each season's games.

He would soon see an offensive resurgence though.  After being traded to the New York Rangers in 1986, Poddubny would have his finest offensive season, scoring more points (87), than regular-season games played (75).  He would set a career single-season high in goals in 1986-87, his first in New York, with 40.  His second season as a Ranger was just as strong, as he marked 88 regular-season points in 77 games.

Poddubny was subsequently traded to the Quebec Nordiques, where he would play and wear the sweater number 75 during the 1988-89 NHL season.  He would again score more points (75) than regular season games played (72).

Poddubny's NHL career was rounded out with parts of three seasons spent with the New Jersey Devils.

It took some time, between being drafted and Ryder's first NHL appearance during the 2003-04 season, but it was worth the wait.  Ryder quickly made himself known as an offensive presence, racking up 25 goals and 38 assists in his rookie effort.

Michael Ryder Boston Bruins Signed 16x20 Unframed PhotoThe lockout season interrupted Ryder's momentum, but not drastically.  During 2005-06, he would accumulate 55 points, while upping his regular season goal tally to 30.  Oddly enough, Ryder matched his 2005-06 regular season goal total during the 2006-07 regular season.  He netted 58 points in his third full regular season.

After the 2007-08, the Canadiens neglected to sign Ryder, and the Boston Bruins quickly snatched him up.  Ryder would have his highest regular-season shooting percentage in that first year with the Bruins, setting a 14.6% mark.  He has accumulated 88 total regular season points in his first two seasons with the Bruins.

Entering the league at age 20, during the 2006-07 season, Malkin would put up 85 points in 78 regular season games (33 goals and 52 assists).  Not bad for a rookie.  Good enough actually, for number 71 to win the Calder Memorial Trophy in 2007.

NHL Series 17: Evgeni Malkin - Pittsburgh Penguins- Black JerseyMalkin's sophomore season in the NHL was even more impressive, as he racked up 106 pints in 82 regular season games.  Evgeni was a leader on the Penguins in the playoffs that season as well, helping Pittsburgh reach the Stanley Cup, while scoring 22 points in 20 playoff games.


2008-09 was Malkin's strongest season offensively to-date.  Malkin led the NHL in both points, with 113, and assists, with 78 in the regular season.  As impressive as his regular season was, his playoff performance in 2008-09 may have been even more impressive.  Malkin was an offensive force for the Penguins, on their way to the Stanley Cup Championship, putting up 36 points in 24 post-season games.  His performance was good enough to get him awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy.  

In four seasons with the Penguins, Malkin has accumulated 381 points in 309 regular season games, matched with 73 points in 62 playoff games.
