    Re: Should The NFL Change It's Player Number System?

    No number changes this year:

    DENVER (May 23, 2006) -- Reggie Bush won't get to wear the No. 5 he made famous at USC for the New Orleans Saints.

    Not this season and perhaps not ever.

    Atlanta general manager Rich McKay, co-chairman of the competition committee, said the committee had recommended against Bush's request for his college number.

    The decision was made by the committee after two conference calls. It was never discussed by the owners.

    "Nobody is comfortable that an exception be made to the policy and no one is confident that there will ever be a change," McKay said at the NFL owners meetings, adding that it might come up again, but certainly not until after the 2006 season has started.

    Didn't Ed Podalak of the KC Chiefs wear #14 as a RB?

    From what I've read, the league adopted the numbering system in the mid seventies to "help fans get acquainted with the players by position", so Podalak was probably given his #14 before then, along with guys like QB John Hadl who wore #21, and WR Lance Alworth who wore #19.
