Should the 49ers bring their retro jerseys back?

This argument has been going on all day, so let’s do it here.

Bringing this argument to the site, as we’ve been having some debate on the twitter today about the San Francisco 49ers and which jerseys suit them best. When it’s the offseason, that’s what you do. For this particular case, it was the jerseys in the main picture:

I thought yes, I like those. I think they’re a good use of the “alternate” jersey. To be fair, there’s plenty of options the team has. They have a lot of good throwback choices and I wouldn’t mind seeing them use more of these.

It didn’t seem like there was anyone on the fence with this. You either love the idea or absolutely hate it. That was my takeaway, basically. Apparently, Bill Walsh wasn’t a fan:

“They had the greatest classiest uniforms in all of sports and they just took and ruined it and i don’t know why.”

The two other popular one’s that came up were the ‘94 Jerseys & the 80’s Jerseys. From there, it was just all kind of random concoctions. I guess that’s a good thing. So let’s take a poll, and if you have a better idea, let us know.
