Earlier in the NFL off-season, Hall of Fame Eric Dickerson said he was not a fan of the Los Angeles Rams’ new logo.
On Wednesday, Dickerson – who played for the Rams from 1983 to 1987 and is currently a member of the team’s front office – focused on the recently unveiled uniforms.
Spoiler alert: they get a boost.
“It’s football. It has nothing to do with surfing. It has nothing to do with the waves, “Dickerson said on Los Angeles radio station AM570 on Wednesday. “It’s football. It’s a male sport. And to me it looks sweet. It doesn’t look like football. It doesn’t look hard. “

The Rams said the new uniforms are the product of building “an identity that celebrates both the history of the team and LA’s diverse and vibrant community – a brand that respects the past and represents the to come up “.
Dickerson said that philosophy was missing the point.
“I just don’t like the tape around the sleeve. It’s not big enough, “said Dickerson. “It almost looks like a lightning bolt, like the Chargers uniform. I don’t like the stripe on the pants. I wish it was bigger. ”
And do not even launch it on the helmet, which it is “very, very disappointed”. Dickerson argued that the horn on the helmet is more like that of a goat than a ram.
“And the horn, man, this is horrible,” he said. “I just feel like they really took off the Rams uniform. And it almost looks like the Chargers logo. It looks like two bananas, that’s what it looks like. “
The only bright spot was the color scheme, which includes blue “Rams Royal” and yellow “Sol”. Dickerson tacitly approved.
“I will say this, the colors are not bad,” said Dickerson. “If you want to change the colors, make them brighter, the uniform is not bad. “
Dickerson also said he had conversations with Los Angeles Chargers coach Anthony Lynn. The other Los Angeles team also redesigned their uniforms during the off season, Dickerson said Lynn told him that the organization had let the players have a big say in the layout and design.
