Has anyone ever seen them wear black before? I don't watch a lot of Cards football, but, I can't remember ever seeing them wear black.

I know, a WOMAN question, but, just curious and thought I would ask!idonno:

Same thing for the Mets. They just adopted the color to see more gear.

Don't recall it. Maybe they're using the Texans' method of jersey marketing.

There was a study done in the late 80's that showed that teams that wear all black or mostly black jerseys are viewed on a psychological level as being more aggresive, more tough, etc. They are also called for more penalties.

Maybe the Cards were trying to "get tougher"

The Cardinals officially went black to the future Thursday.

Using the annual draft party as a backdrop, the Cards unveiled their alternate third jersey at Majerle’s Sports Grill in Chandler a few hours before making their first-round selection in the 2010 NFL draft.

The jersey is predominantly black, and will be worn with white pants that have a black stripe with a red accent, as well as black socks.


I thought they've worn them before but I must be confused with Philadelphia for some reason.

Nine NFL teams wore alternate color uniforms last season: Baltimore (black), Carolina (process blue), Chicago (orange), Cincinnati (orange), Houston (red), Denver (orange), Philadelphia (black), San Diego (light blue) and Seattle (green). There were also a handful of teams that wore historic -- or "throwback" -- jerseys.

Anyway I thought they looked pretty slick.

Cards have a uniform blackout

Yes, in a secret horribly kept, the Cardinals have officially announced they will have a new third alternate jersey starting in 2010, a black top that as far as I can tell, most fans have been clamoring for for years. It’ll be worn with white pants; sorry, the same white helmet remains (teams can’t have an alternate helmet unless it was their primary helmet at some point in the franchise’s history).

That link leads to a blog that only cites one source. That one source, of course, is a dead link.

I hate to complain, because I am glad that you brought it up. That is a very fascinating subject. I'm just disappointed that I can't confirm it.

Thanks guys! It was strange seeing them in black. Didnt know it was the Cards until I saw the red Cardinal on the helmet. Truthfully, I didn't like it, very boring.

I'm colorblind, so I thought they were red at first.
