So what's worse? Shady McCoy spoiling the ending of a movie or what Allen did today?

 

Allen's is pretty rough, I was super excited. Maybe the NFL will take notice of how excited people were and change the dumb rule.

 

Are the Bengals uniforms color rush with the white helmet?

Changed from white helmet to red helmet in the 1980s for a stupid reason, let the red helmet stay dead.

 

My dad used to tell me it was because at the time all the AFC East teams had white helmets and Ferguson complained he couldn't find his receivers.  They changed to red to make it easier for him.

Allen may have “trolled” us but I highly doubt this was random. I very much think we have red helmets in our future, be it alternates or the main, and this was more foreshadowing. 
 

That wasn’t the 90’s or 00’s red helmet either, the double blue stripes are unique.

My dad told me the exact same thing

I think Josh might be forcing the issue.  By pulling this stunt the cat's out of the bag.  It's also a very sneaky way for the Bills to gauge interest in the red helmets.

 

As already noted, the red jersey is simply the "no touchy the QB" practice jersey.  And the stripes are the ones normally placed on the white helmet, one reason I think Allen slapped together.

Ferguson was colorblind apparently. My dad told me the same thing

I respectfully disagree, there is no way this was a prank by Allen. I think this was a preview/prototype for the new red design (blue stripes look weird with the white shoulder stripe)
