Panthers Fawn Over Saints Color Rush Uniforms, Falcons Make Fun of Them (Tweets)


This week’s Thursday night football matchup between the Panthers and Saints promises to be one of the better-looking Color Rush games of the 2016 NFL Season. The Panthers will sports the decent all-teal look they wore last year. Meanwhile, the Saints will wear an all-white uniform that has been widely praised as the best of the all-white looks we’ve seen so far.

Unfortunately, the Panthers had to go and make it weird. Currently sitting at 3-6, their season is on the line in this game against the division rival Saints, who are 4-5. Neither team should be exchanging pleasantries. But apparently the folks running the Panthers’ Twitter account just couldn’t help it:

Were they fishing for compliments? Is this some weird mind game? Who knows. The Saints were appreciative of the compliment, though:

So yeah, pretty weird, right?

Fortunately, the division-leading Atlanta Falcons chimed in and said exactly what the rest of us were thinking:

Sick burn, guys.
