Seahawks breaking out “Wolf Grey” uniforms for trip to Toronto

With the arrival of Nike as the official apparel provider for the NFL, the Seahawks were the first team to get an extreme makeover.

Through 14 weeks, however, the Seahawks have been holding in their back pockets an alternative ensemble.  Dubbed “Wolf Grey,” it’s a gray-on-gray outfit that will makes its debut not in Seattle but Toronto.

And that’s the strangest aspect of this.  Typically, the alternative uniform makes its appearance before the home crowd, so that the locals will cough up the shekels for the third jersey.

Still, the move will give the players a little kick as they hit the road for the last time in the regular season.  And if they can beat the Bills in Toronto and if the 49ers lose in New England, the only thing standing in the way of Seattle winning the NFC West crown will be a pair of home games against the 49ers and Rams.

  1. I know it sounds weird, but I still liked their old (used-only-once) alternate, the shock-green ones. Eyeball-burning bright, yes, but very distinctive and different in a league of overall boring uniforms. Bring back the green!

  2. Ever see a Buffalo get taken down by a pack of grey wolves?

    Good timing, I think. Fan interest in the team is increasing as they improve and look towards the playoffs, and there’s a certain holiday coming up that inspires people to part with money for somewhat frivilous purchases, like $99 fake jerseys with another man’s name on the back. Get the order in by Monday, it should arrive in time for the biggest day of the year….that day, of course, being December 23rd, when the Niners come to town.

  3. So when a team wears gray, are they the “white” jersey team or the dark jersey team. In other words, will the Bills wear white or blue?

  4. Why unveil anything in Canada? They could strap naked swimsuit models to everyone on both teams and the Canadians still wouldn’t show any excitement. “Oh hey, look at that, eh?”

  5. It’s always nice to see teams trying to reinvent their jerseys to make them more appealing, and this wolf grey looks better than their other 2. Cool stuff and good job by the Hawks. They are doing lots of things right this year. Especially getting a starting QB for not a gigantic risky draft pick or huge FA dollars.

    That’s smart football for their long-term future.

  6. The new Seahawks uni’s are fugly as hell. Then again, they have been since they swapped out to the darker blue.

    Need more 80s blue and silver, less neon green, etc.

  7. Pretty sure that they would have unveiled them at home this year, except that with a 6-0 record at home they are probably a little hesitant to change anything up at all about the recipe for home wins.

    As a long-time hawks fan I wasn’t sure about the new uniforms at first but now I think they’re great, they look good on the field in person and on tv. Seeing the old jerseys at home games, they look old and boring.

    It’s not like the Seahawks have the history and tradition of a lot of nfl teams. I appreciate the fact that we’re willing to mix it up. It also works well for a young team.

  8. This will be the 3rd game i’ve gone to in the bills in Toronto series and I yell louder for the bills(any afc>nfc team) then most “bills” fans there. Bills crushing the skins last year was fun.

  9. I read they had to bring in Psy to perform at halftime in order to sell more tickets. I feel bad for the Bills fans they lose a home game each year to a place they can’t even sell tickets for.

    They’re becoming more like the Oregon Ducks each year.

    Because they have an alternate jersey like almost every other team in the league? Odd post.
