So what do you think of Seahawks in green?

GreenJerseysSo now that you’ve had a chance to see ’em, what do you think of the Seattle Seahawks in green?

It’s not exactly what I expected … green shirts with blue sleeves. Looks like a lime vest. The pants are dark blue.

Definitely a different look. Maybe it’ll grow on me, but my initial reaction is that it just doesn’t look like the Seahawks.

I’ll say this. The skill-position guys might pull this off. As T.J. Houshmandzadeh said last month when the green jerseys were still just a rumor, “If you’ve got style, you can rock anything.”

Houshmandzadeh, Seneca Wallace and most of the receivers and running backs have accessorized their outfits with neon green shoes and gloves.

Even the Seagals are wearing green No. 12 jerseys on the sidelines and look just fine.

But the big men on the interior? The guys in the trenches like 330-pound Colin Cole and Brandon Mebane? Let’s just say the lime-vest look does NOT have a slimming effect.

If they beat Chicago today, of course, no one will care what they wear. Or will they?
