The Miami Dolphins will be digging deep in their vault of awesomeness this weekend and bring out their throwback uniforms for the game at Hard Rock Stadium against the Los Angeles Chargers.
The uniform the team wore when it won back-to-back Super Bowls during the 1972 and ‘73 seasons will make its first of three appearances this year.
According to ProFootballTalk, there has actually been some chatter within the organizaton about making these throwback uniforms permanent.
“Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, “a lot of people” in the organization want the throwbacks to become the permanent uniforms.”
Head coach Brian Flores had this comment to say about the uniforms, via the Miami Herald:
“I’m not a big fashion guy, so it’s not really at the top of my priority list,” he said. “I like the new uniforms, I like the old uniforms. I like the old logo. But I just like coaching football. So sorry Mando, that’s not really at the top of my priority list. It’s not really something I think about.
“And I know there’s people that love the old uniforms. But old uniforms, new uniforms, I like to coach. I don’t care what we’re wearing.”
Miami has won four straight, as they sit at 5-3 and seem to be actual playoff contenders with a bright future.
