Change seems to be the theme of the Los Angeles Rams’ 2017 season.
Not only did the Rams hire a new coach in Sean McVay — now the youngest head coach in NFL history — after firing Jeff Fisher last season. They’re also tweaking their uniforms, revealing this week that they’ll wear different pants and helmets than we’ve been accustomed to seeing in recent years.
The Rams wore all blue and white uniforms — including white horns on their helmets — between 1964 and 1972. In their first season back in L.A. in 2016, the Rams wore helmets with white horns during a Thursday Night Football game against the Seattle Seahawks, and they drew rave reviews, likely contributing to the team’s decision to don the lids full time starting in 2017.
Using a fan vote to determine their pant stripes and facemask color was a nice touch by the Rams, too.
