      The Patriots have perfect uniforms. Why change them? I couldn’t help myself. I felt like I just had to write a counter-argument to Wednesday’s article written by Rich Hill, the excellent managing editor here at Pats Pulpit, about the Patriots’ uniforms.

His main argument was that he would like to see more solid colors – the pants being the same color as the jersey. During a Thursday Night Football home game in 2016, the Patriots wore an alternate…
