Miami Dolphins’ Mike Pouncey: throwback jerseys ‘a meaner look’

Are these sweet jerseys? Why yes, they are sweet jerseys.

DAVIE — Count Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey among the fans of Miami’s throwback uniforms.

The Dolphins will break out the 1966 aqua jerseys with the traditional Dolphin logo on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium against the Bills.

“I love the throwback jerseys,” Pouncey said Friday. “I love the darker color. It kind of reminds me of when I was here my rookie year. I like the color. It gives it a different look. A meaner look.”

Pouncey is in favor of expanding Miami’s use of the throwback uniform to all home games or all games in the future.

“Hopefully that starts in 2018,” Pouncey said. “We love the jerseys, man. We like the look. It’s a good look for our football team. Especially when we play in cold weather places. If we ever got a chance to play with the darker jerseys in cold weather, it’s better.”

The Dolphins switched to the current logo and color scheme in 2013. Some fans have clamored for a return to a more classic look.

But NFL teams can’t just switch logos and color schemes on a whim. Miami would need time to work with the league on such changes.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase appears a fan of the throwback logo and colors, too, as he has been seen many times wearing apparel and/or caps.

“It’s a good change-up for us,” Gase said. “I think any time you have change in uniform, every once in a while, I think it’s a fun experience for the players, especially when the other team does the same thing.”

The Bills are also wearing throwback uniforms on Sunday.

Why does Gase wear the throwback apparel and caps?

“I wear what fits me so…,” he said.
