RIP “Action Green” Seahawks uniforms? Future of NFL’s “Color Rush” is uncertain

While Thursday Night Football isn’t going anywhere except from NBC and CBS to FOX, one element of the oft-criticized mid-week NFL product appears to be in some trouble.

“Color Rush” has been a part of TNF over the past few seasons, with very uh... colorful alternate jerseys being worn by essentially every team on the schedule throughout the year. The Seattle Seahawks have sported their “Action Green” uniforms for two straight seasons.

On Tuesday, FOX Sports executive Bill Wanger flat out said at the National Association of Broadcasters Show (aka NAB Show) we won’t be seeing Color Rush uniforms on Thursday Night Football.

I’ve never understood Color Rush as an interesting gimmick, especially when so many teams have much cooler throwback jerseys, and I am glad to see this elimi——wait a second. Looks like you can’t kill off Color Rush just yet!

That’s right, we may just end up getting some Color Rush stuff shifted to other days of the week instead of only on Thursday nights.

Action Green may live to see another season.
