Harbaugh explains the pants...and asks for fans to submit their ideas. https://t.co/oUfuQHTHeX— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) December 21, 2015
Riddle me this: If we were 14-0, and going into a non-flexed game against 13-1 Pittsburgh, and we broke out in the Old Gold pants on national television, and then obliterated Pitt, would you like the pants?
Methinks losing has more than 50% to do with why people are sour on the Gold pants alternative for the Ravens uniform.
It is a legitimate and official Raven color that is underused.
Why not us?
If every jack-legged team has a "Nike Rush" option, two-toned helmets (which I hate), throwback unis, or keystone kop jerseys, why can't we have an unorthodox option?!
As soon as I saw it, I had two thoughts: First, I like it! We should keep those. Second, the Free World will hate those, especially if we are losing.
I even had a short dialogue with my favorite BaltimoreRavens.com writer, Sarah Ellison:
I implore you, fellow Ravens fans, to ask yourself the question of how wins are related to your hatred of these pants.
If you see a morsel of intersect, would you please stay your execution of these things. Reasons:
- The players like them, according to Coach Harbaugh.
- They really do match. I know, I know. But they are official color scheme and they match.
- The Ravens don't have throwback jerseys, so the options are limited.
- They were supposed to go with the 20th Anniversary celebration, a surprise.
The better the Ravens play, the more I grow to like the gold pants.— Ryan Mink (@ryanmink) December 20, 2015
