Oh, how sweet it is.
The Seahawks’ current jerseys (a No. 6 seed) have advanced to the round of 16 in Dave Dameshek’s NFL.com bracket to determine the greatest uniform in NFL history. The club’s current digs toppled the current uniforms of the New York Giants (No. 3) in round two by a final vote count of 74,688 to 35,085 – an achievement that came one round after more than doubling up on the No. 11 seed Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 51,937 to 25,689, to open bracket play.
The Seahawks unis are now matched up against the current unis of the New Orleans Saints in what should be a close battle between two fierce fan bases – Seattle’s 12th Man and New Orleans’ “Who Dat” nation. Voting for Round 3 ends on Sunday, July 14 at 6 p.m. PT.
And if you’re playing catch up, the Seahawks’ current jerseys and 1976 throwback digs were featured when Dameshek unveiled the competition early last week, but by way of fan vote only the club’s new jersey made it out of the competition’s first-round.

“It’s the Super Bowl for pro football get-ups.”
Those are the words from NFL.com personality Dave Dameshek, who for the purposes of this exercise dubs himself, “The Uniform Moderator.”
Dameshek has unveiled.. Err, excuse me. The Uniform Moderator has unveiled a bracket to let football fans determine the greatest uniform in NFL history. The bracket pits current uniforms against each other on one side and select throwback uniforms against each other on the other. The Uniform Moderator has doled out seeds (No.1 – No. 16) for each club’s uniforms and placed them in a four-region bracket reminiscent of NCAA’s March Madness tournament – NFC teams against NFC teams and AFC teams against AFC teams until final round of four jerseys, where the two conferences will finally meet.
The Seahawks’ current uni’s earned a No. 6 seed and are up against the current digs of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (No. 11 seed) in the bracket’s first round, while Seattle’s 1976-79 throwback uni’s earned a No. 10 seed and find themselves the underdog against the throwback get-up of the 1941-48 Chicago Bears.
Voting for the first round runs through Friday, July 5 at 2 p.m. PT. As of this writing, the Seahawks’ 2013 digs had a sizable advantage over the Buccaneers, but the throwback jerseys could use your help against the Bears, so why not log on and cast a vote for both.
With playoff implications at hand, the Seahawks traveled cross-country on Christmas Day to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 16.
