Uh Oh, Seems Mangini is Thinking About the Brown Pants

Remember that game during the Giants last preseason when the Browns got crushed and they were wearing those ugly brown pants? Well, seems that new head coach Eric Mangini is actually CONSIDERING having the team wear those pants for EVERY ROAD GAME in the 09 season.

Tony Grossi of the PD had this on the brown pants in today’s paper:

Will the chocolate-brown uniform pants have a new life under new Browns coach Eric Mangini?

The Browns unveiled the brown pants in the disastrous second exhibition game at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., last summer. That was the game in which the Browns fell behind the New York Giants, 30-3, in barely more than one quarter.

That national prime-time performance, punctuated by several major injuries, contributed to the bad taste left by the radical look of the brown pants. They have been locked up in the Browns’ equipment room ever since.

But rumors have surfaced recently that Mangini intends to surprise everyone by dressing his team in brown pants for every road game this year.

A Browns official could have shot the rumor down. But when it was posed to Neal Gulkis, director of public relations, he responded, “No final determination has been made.”

Gulkis went on to point out that pant colors – unlike jerseys – do not have to be approved by the league before the season.

“You can decide what pants you will be wearing as late as the day before a game,” Gulkis wrote in an e-mail.

    Go for it, Eric. If you win me 8-9 games this season, you can put puke-stained wrist bands on the squad for all I care.

    It is bad enough the team plays bad now we are going to look just as bad, go back to our orange pants again, those look great.

  3. Dennis Thompson says:

    I liked the orange pants, too, with white jersies. Or, maybe orange jersies with white pants? Or a white jersey with orange numbers, outlined in brown? Or, brown pants with orange and white stripes?

    So far, these guys have played like buffoons. Please don’t make them dress the part, too.
