Yes Barron got first dibs on 26, now I can order a jersey lol.
What about Johnson and Snell? Looks like Bush is 55. Hope Johnson takes an 80's number... not a fan of the TEENie-bopper numbers on WRs.
Johnson has 13 for mini, Snell has 29, Gentry was issued 83. Bush wanted to keep his 10 that is why he chose 55.
Sorry I was wrong they gave Johnson 18 for rookie minicamp and Snell 24
This smells like a Bell thread in disguise.
We're going to need you to come downtown for further questioning.
I think it is awesome that Barron will wear the number some how fitting.
hold your horses everyone...these numbers are NOT official yet...only Bush with 55
I agree. Do you think that opinion is a reflection of our age, or it just sucks?
It’s the league spuriously changing rules to benefit the passing game!
Though I suspect my dislike of it is due to nostalgia. Like how I bemoan teams who changed from their 80s uniforms.
I’m going with old age.
Ain't that the truth Jeh. I can remember when receivers ALWAYS wore numbers in the LXXX's while XC's were reserved for D linemen. They even played in the original Coliseum, long before Oakland and LA's were even conceived. (And some guy named Ben Hur dominated the Pompeii 500 back then).
They had letters on their jerseys?
Arabic numbers (1, 2, 3...) weren't invented - we were all still using Roman numerals. Of all people Mac, I figured you remember the early days, you know, back when school was so easy because history hadn't been a subject yet.
Get out Arabs didn't play football. All I remember is jeh and diamond were on page 1.
OK - well most of the world calls it football.................
Just to clarify, Diamond was more towards the top of the page than I was.
I am glad Barron is gonna take 26 instead of Snell. I don't want Snell to get caught up in the whole LB comparison.......mostly by himself.
What is that kick ball?
Whoa, now you've done it...................
Ahhh, gift cards. Thank you.
I'm used to seeing big time WRs with jersey numbers within the 80's range. Like a Lynn Swann, John Stallworth, Jerry Rice, Michael Irving, & others. I don't understand why today's WRs prefer numbers in the teens. To me it doesn't look right. A big time WR should be wearing something in the 80's...
Make no diffa....
