In '97 Jacksonville changed their number font during the pre season. They started out with a narrow number featuring a drop-shadow. After two games, they changed it to a broader version with a black outline for the regular season which were easier to see. The narrow drop-show numbers only appeared on the white jerseys before the change was made.

I remember watching that game at Giants Stadium. I couldn't tell if Brunnell was #6, #8 or #9.

Do you know how hard it was for me to post a picture of Dave Brown? Sheesh, those were rough times!

Sounds much like the Browns' first exhibition game in 1984. From the 8/8/84 Cleveland Plain Dealer:

"The Browns' new home jerseys are going to be changed slightly. The original orange numbers with white piping on the brown jerseys were virtually indistinguishable from the stands and press box Saturday night. The numbers will now be white and might be trimmed in orange.

'We researched it, but we obviously made a mistake,' said Browns spokesman Kevin Byrne. It will be a $6,000 mistake. The club had ordered 200 new brown jerseys at $30 each."
