I know the players weren’t feeling the uniforms, but I’m liking the concept here.

The upcoming Christmas Day game between the Los Angeles Rams and the Denver Broncos doesn’t promise to be the most interesting with both teams sitting at 4-10 on the season, but that’s where we’re at right now.

However, CBS Sports attempted to lighten things up with some holiday spirit Thursday by displaying “ugly sweater” uniforms that both teams would be “wearing” for their Christmas Day game. CBS also got Rams safety Nick Scott and Broncos kicker Brandon McManus involved to help prank their respective teams at practice.

Some of the players were diggin’ the uniforms, but most of them… yeah, they weren’t feeling it.

Now, I understand most of the players didn’t seem to like the “ugly sweater” uniforms, but I’m certainly liking the concept of them. Personally, I’d love to see the NFL use them in its Christmas Eve and Christmas Day games.

And just because they’re “ugly sweaters” doesn’t mean they actually have to be ugly: we can certainly flash and dash them up. I’m telling you (I just blogged about this recently) you can make an ugly sweater pop with the right outfit, and vice versa by making your outfit pop with an ugly sweater.

So dope. Let’s get with it, NFL.
