Well, Candus, you write an article about a 'color'. The color of a jacket to be precise. But, how 'bout a picture of this jacket? Us readers can't make a judgement unless we see it. You did the article an injustice without a picture. Do you not have editors at The SUN?

Actually, I like the trend guys like Jack Del Rio and Sean Payton are trying to revive: the business suit on the sidelines. I like it when Jack Del Rio wears a Jaguar turquoise tie with his suit. Perhaps John Harbaugh can tell Reebok to pound sand and wear a Jos. A. Bank suit* with a purple or lavender tie.
I do not expect every coach to follow suit, however.(follow SUIT?!?! Get it?! Bahaha! I just kill me!) I bet Bill Belichick doesn't even own a suit. He probably wears a black hoodie to funerals.
*thereby promoting the Maryland economy!
Lombardi, Shula, and Halas all used to wear suit and tie at the games. Probably a few more back in dem days.

Who gives a shipt. My main concern is that their uniforms are clean. I hope they wash them in TIDE or CHEER. Lavender is known to turn chicks on. Keep on wearing em and the cheerleaders will be playing with the megaphones.

Sorry no we wouldn't. Especially after his god-awful performance in the last game. He needs to work on those hands.
I will however take James Harrison.
WE HAD HARRISON THREE YEARS AGO, BUT WITH OUR CORPS OF GREAT LINE BACKERS, WE HAD TO LET HIM GO.

"Cheap Shot Ward" has your entire defense's head on a collective swivel when he is on the field. Mission accomplished. You would love him on your team.

Well, yeah, that was my point. I was primarily thinking of Tom Landry and Lombardi. You and I are probably the same age.

Those coats are considered GQ for all of you none reading fans. Besides most of you so called fans need a wardrobe make-over anyway. The City population copies the next guys style. GROW-UP, your closed minded and need to support the team in all its endeavors.

Yes I would take Ward on our team. But as long as he is on Steelers, I would love to see him meet Ray in the middle of the field, head-on.

When I saw those jackets I was immediately looking on the web to see if I could purchase them. Harbaugh can wear Raven PINK if he wants cause he knows he is "the man"!!!!

you know what is really funny, whoever wrote this article should probably be fired. I dont know why this is still up. did anyone watch or catch the highlights of the Saints/Bears game tonight? this is the funny part. the Bears coaches...were wearing....guess what?! "lavender" Bear jackets. the exact same our Ravens coaches wore, but with Bears logos. How stupid are you people to believe that the jackets were lavender? You are either color blind or just plain stupid. I dare someone to tell me that the Bears were also wearing lavender jackets tonight. Maybe some people need to learn their colors. Maybe learn what gray/silver is.

Candus Thomson should be fired. Horrible article. I don't know if it can be even called an article, because it is completely false and wrong. Worse I have seen from the Baltimore Sun. Color blind people shouldnt write about color.

We had him the year before and let him go...sometimes guys slip through the cracks or it takes them awhile to get coached up.

I think all quarterbacks should wear a pink jersey, that way the defense will know that is the guy you are not allowed to touch or you'll get penalized and most likely fined.
