Unless a future 2017 regular-season road opponent throws the Rams a curve ball, it looks like they won’t have to wear the hideous mismatched uniforms they wore against the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars.

That’s the good news.

On the flip side, the major changes the Rams have planned for a fresh new look representing their move back to Los Angeles won’t happen until 2019, at the earliest, and possibly 2020 to coincide with the opening of their new stadium in Inglewood.

By NFL rule, uniform changes require a two-year notification and lock teams into that uniform for five years. The Rams have begun that process – remember, the new stadium was originally expected to be opened in 2019 – and have yet to decide whether to make the switch in 2019 or 2020.

Change is coming, which is a positive for those who hate the current color scheme. And there are plenty of haters, most of whom reside in Southern California and can’t help but connect the present jersey and pants color schemes with the years the Rams spent in St. Louis.

Just not quickly enough.
