  9. Which NFC West teams look the best

    Mike Sando

    The Seattle Seahawks' new uniforms are different. We can agree on that. My wife thinks the neon green piping along the outside pants seam resembles lighted arrows guiding plane passengers or moviegoers toward the exits. She also once steered me...
