Dolphins to unveil alternate unis vs. Buffalo

Fashionista alert:

The Miami Dolphins are going full aqua jersey over aqua pants against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night at Sun Life Stadium.

It will mark the first time since the team changed uniforms last season that the Dolphins wear an alternate type uniform in a game. The team usually wears either all white, or a white top and aqua pants, or an aqua top and white pants. Aqua

This will look, well, different.



That's a matter of personal taste. You decide how you feel Thursday night, but meanwhile you have a little clue to whet your appetite courtesy a picture tweeted by Dolphins CEO and President Tom Garfinkel.

People with a historic or institutional knowledge of the franchise will remember this is the third time the Dolphins wear an all aqua uniform. They did it against the Chicago Bears in 2002, against the Philadelphia Eagles in 2003 and against the Cleveland Browns in 2004. The first two games were on a Monday Night and the third on a Sunday night.

The Dolphins are 2-1 in their alternate aqua unis.

And then there's this: I do not believe the Dolphins need extra motivation for this game. It is in prime time. It is a nationally telecast event. It is against a divisional rival. So there are reasons players should be into this game.

But if the Dolphins can use this as even one iota of extra juice for this game ... then it's a great idea and great timing. Pull out the all orange next.
