Seahawks to wear Action Green — with a twist — on Monday Night Football

The Seattle Seahawks have a lot of different looks that they can put together with their uniform combinations.

There’s the all-blue scheme, the all-gray scheme, the all-white scheme… you get the picture. And then there’s any number of combinations you can think of between all those different versions of pants and jerseys.

One thing that has been untouchable, however, are the Seahawks’ “Action Green” uniforms. Typically worn during Thursday night games, the Seahawks have only worn those particular bright green jerseys with their matching bright green pants since they overhauled their uniforms ahead of the 2012 season.

Well, until now, that is.

That’s right – the Seahawks announced Wednesday that they are breaking out the Action Green jerseys for the second time this season for their upcoming Monday Night Football game against the Minnesota Vikings, but they’re changing up the pants, opting instead for blue bottoms.

Believe or not, the Seahawks actually wore a similar combo to this before in 2009 for a game against the Chicago Bears. The jersey color then was called lime green, and it was the first time the team wore anything close to the highlighter-esque shade we have become so familiar with over the last few years.

Say what you want about whether uniforms are a factor in how teams play – personally, I’ve never made it a secret about where I stand on the issue – but the Seahawks are 4-0 in Action Green since they began wearing the uniforms on an annual basis in 2016, including a 30-29 win over the defending NFC champion Los Angeles Rams on Oct. 3.
