Eric Dickerson doesn't hate new Rams jersey after blasting last year's updated look as 'terrible'

·2-min read

The Los Angeles Rams have yet another new uniform.

This one's going over better than the previous new look. Just ask Eric Dickerson.

The Hall of Fame running back who made All-Pro four times as a Ram blasted last year's makeover that arrived alongside the team's first season in SoFi Stadium. He told AM 570 in Los Angeles that the new design was a better fit for the Chargers and that the Ram horns looked "like two bananas" on the side of the helmet.

"It don't look football," Dickerson said. "It don't look hard."

He made those comments while employed as the team's vice president of business development. The self-proclaimed "Rambassador" then vowed on Twitter to take wider complaints about the makeover up the franchise ladder.

Apparently the message got through. Kind of.

Dickerson introduces new threads

The Rams unveiled a new jersey Tuesday the team describes as "modern throwback." They'll wear the new threads three times this season.

There's not a lot that stands out as new on the jerseys. Feel free to parse the differences for yourself. But it's a chance to sell more gear, and the Rams launched a coinciding hype video featuring running back Cam Akers. This time, they got Dickerson on board. He makes a cameo at the end of the video, tossing Akers his new jersey while proclaiming "let's play some football."

But those banana-horn helmets don't appear to be going anywhere. So far, there's no new comment from Dickerson on that front.
