A year ago, the Falcons positively delighted a lot of fans by actually rolling out some throwback uniforms. We got the classic Falcons logo and the black uniforms for a couple of games in 2016, and while I can’t be certain, I think that’s a major reason the Falcons wound up back in the Super Bowl for the second time in franchise history.
Now the team’s teasing the possibility of a new uniform (which, if we’re being honest, will almost certainly be a throwback one), and it’s safe to say we’re intrigued. The only question is which ones we’re going to get, and whether it’s going to be just for a game or two or for the whole damn 2018 season. Please let it be the latter.
In case you’re wondering, Falcons site editor Matt Tabeek put together a poll asking what everyone’s favorite color combinations were, and the answers leaned overwhelmingly toward my personal favorite, which is the all-black uniform combo. Whether those poll results were important as the Falcons made whatever decision they were going to make remains to be seen.

What is @AtlantaFalcons' fans all-time favorite uniform color combination?
(Note order: helmets, jersey, pants)
At the end of the day, we’re all Falcons fans, so we’re obviously (and hilariously) overexcited about the possibility of a uniform change. I’d love to wildly speculate about what we’re going to get and whether we’re going to get more than a game or two, but for now, we’ll just wait and see what the day brings.
You’re welcome to guess, though.
