Couldn't tell you but I'd put my money on it. Uni watch had the full schedule for teams wearing alternate colors. It listed that Atlanta would be wearing the black alternates so it is probably going to be the solid black uni. This is also the only scheduled time this season that we will wear alternates.

I like the red jerseys and black pants, the black uni's are pretty cool too. I have to say that I like out uni's a lot better than most of the other teams. Arizona obviously took notice, they stole ours.

Ooops! The schedule shows 12/12 not 9/12. Who'da thunk we'd play on the 12th twice in a season? :)

I was never a fan of the new look black unis. They reminded me too much of the Houston Texans uniforms (sub navy blue for black). I like the red ones. Not too fond of the white ones, but then again there aren't many white jerseys out there that impress me (just too plain).

I wonder if the Falcons will be wearing alternates for thanksgiving. I would love to see the team go back to the unis of the Glanville era. IMO, the black ones then were the best we've ever worn. But if we do throw back for that game, I suspect we'll do the red ones of the 70s or 80s with those ugly red helmets...ewww.

Yeah, I'd have to guess that on Thanksgiving we will wear throwbacks. If I'm not mistaken its been a tradition for teams to wear throwbacks on Thanksgiving.

One thing I did read in Uni-Watch (that I didn't mistake) is that Detroit WILL NOT wear throwback jerseys on Thanksgiving this year. They will wear their black alternates.

Speaking of uni's. Why dont we wear our black pants with our white jerseys? I think that looks badass. Its alot better then the all white. IF Im not mistaken the only time we ever wore our black pants with our white jerseys was the first game Vick came back in 2003 vs. the texans.

I like our red jerseys a lot, but I definitely dig it when we break out the all blacks!

I never have been a big fan of the current jersey's. They have a few pluses otherwise they are over the top. I love the good ol plain football jerseys. College teams typically have the best uniforms. I've always liked how (I think it's Bama) Alabama had the basic jersey and the numbers on the helments.

The Crimson Tide!!!! lol
Yeah those are classic. I like the new unis ok, but the old 80's red & silver were the best no doubt. Good call.

Dirtybird, those Bama jerseys are just too plain for me. I guess you like Penn State's jerseys too. I need a bit more to look at. I can deal with plain jerseys if the color scheme is nice, as I think the Raiders have good colors (silver & black IMO just feel like hard-hitting football colors). But I need a bit more to look at. I don't need flashy ones like what the Bengals have.

I do like the Falcons white on black pants better than the white on white.
