I was at ****s sporting goods at ridge hill in yonkers NY,the manager was talking to me about the Giants and stuff,and how he was sold out of the Giants jerseys,and the one i wanted.I really wanted a new tuck jersey.He then informs me that the dreaded cursed 'red jerseys' are returning next season. Now i have never been a fan of the red jerseys,since they are a curse and the gmen NEVER win in them,but can is he right?I looked online,and found no info but he seemsed pretty confident about the info.

Does any Giants fan know if this info is right? I appreciate all the help i can get with this.

Thanks guys,happy holidays.

Just take it as a good sign that the store was out of Tuck jerseys and rethink your plans of who you should buy.

We didn't have an alternate jersey this year.

To the OP, yes, I believe that we will have a throwback jersey this season, I just have no idea what it will be.

Can't we just have the 80s throwbacks?

I like to pretend everyone on D is LT.

Officially, it appears they did - they just didn't use them.

This is from the team's 2012 media kit:

I guess it could've been revised, though.

No truth to that, no.

They got rid of them. MG confirmed this and that weird bald headed guy spoke on it too I forget his name. He works with Michael Eisen.

There may have been a design for one, but we never used it, nor do I believe it was ever made.

I thought so, too. 2009, I think? I was surprised when I saw it on there. I guess it's outdated.

+1 80s/early 90s throwbacks would be sweet

The funny thing is, our home uniforms are throwbacks... to the 50s.

The red jerseys are my favorite. I have an Eli, Sehorn, and Plaxico one now. I really hope they bring them back, I'd get a JPP one.

I don't believe in curses with a jersey at all.

I'd like to see 80's throwback uniforms with "GIANTS" on the helmets.

And yes, with dominant linebackers!

Not a fan of the red jerseys but I do remember they posted a stat about them having a great record in games they wore them.

I don't think this is accurate cause they didn't even wear the pants on the left this year (which were their home pants the past few years). They only wore the road pants on the right (which I'm not a fan of). I'm pretty sure this was just a layout before the final plans were made.

We would have to switch back to a 3-4 defense to do that... You want dominance on the level that has the 4 players. I for one want to go back to 2007 and the era of dominant D-line...

Sorry... I wasn't around then. I just remember seeing a video with your namesake under center and saying "Those uniforms look uncannily familiar"... Honestly the 1980s unis look like, well, the 1980s. I like the cleaner current unis without excessive trim around the numbers, regardless of what color they are...

80's Uni's baby.. I'm down for a throwback! I'm for the Red Jerseys making a comeback too... It isnt like they arent apart of our history.. Please bring back the old school "GIANTS" on the helmets...

I still can't understand how a team nicked named "Big Blue" can have an all red jersey without a stitch of blue in it.
Obviously I wasn't a fan although my son has one. Everytime I walk past his closet, I wonder at first why he has a Cardinals Jersey hanging in it.

One thing I like about the red jerseys is that it reminds me of Little Giants. Even if I cringe at how much uncalled holding went on in that game, it was still a great game, and the heavily-favored cowboys lose at the end... how can you argue with that?

The red jersey worry makes me laugh and laugh -its the equivalent to worrying about heart and desire and grit - while they all are bigger factors then jersey colors they are hilarious concerns to me. Get some more talent jerry, i believe in you. .

Learned at the HoF -- Giants were the first team to wear colorful unis and used to alternate home games between red and blue until the 50s.

Honestly, I wish they had the 80's throwbacks to wear as an alternate. But really, especially with this modern Nike, I would welcome blue pants. No team in the NFL would look like us with the blue helmet, blue jersey, and blue pants. And road jerseys should be white with white pants. Get rid of the grey pants already, grey is not our colors at all. We're big blue, yet on our away uni's only our helmet has blue haha

the gray pants go back to the 1930s ...so yes it is one of the New York Football Giants colors

they were wearing red and gray before that big blue nickname existed
