    I'm offended that the Bills jerseys don't have Christmas trees and snowflakes on them.

    In class today, talking about the Constitutional requirements to be president... Keep in mind this is an 11th grade class. Me: The President must be a natural born citizen Student: But Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States? Me: Yes, yes he was. Student: No, he was born in Hawaii I think myself and the other 29 kids all facepalmed at the same time.

    The first thing that comes to mind is that the Jaguars are going to die of "epidermal suffocation."

    Wow what an edgy helmet for Iowa. Glad they kept in in secrecy for so long.

    I really wished they would have gone the Throwback Thursday/Color vs Color route (I know that it is impossible due to the one helmet rule but still). Jets in sack exchange green vs the 0 - 4 Super Bowl Bills. Next week a Oilers vs Inaugural season Jaguars set.

    After a season, I think the Mariners made the wrong move in switching the outlines. It was a better look when the silver was more subtle, IMO.

    I may be in the minority, but I really feel Carolina's basic set (silver-black-silver and silver-white-white) is just about perfect as is. In fact, they're in my top five NFL sets and have been for many years. I don't want to see much done at all to them for a very long time. The helmet stripes get a lot of flak, but they've never really bothered me. For one, even though I know they're not claw marks, the stripes have that sort of feel to them, which fit the identity. And regarding the stripe color, the stripes are a little thinner at the start before they taper. They being black helps them to be a bit bolder to make up for the width; if you invert the colors, they're just not going to stand out very well, I think. I also suppose they've been around so long that, in my eyes, they just look right. Granted they probably look like they "shouldn't" work, but to me, they do. I also think - in regards to the set as a whole - if you tried to change the helmet and/or pants stripes to something more traditional (meaning straighter rather than tapered), it would take away from what I feel to be the set's core strength: a traditional base design that is modernized to fit a swift, "slashy" cat theme. It appears to, from a distance, already look like a rather traditional uniform, yet up close you can see modern elements which set Carolina apart. I wouldn't really want them to lose that, because I feel they've done it so well. And it's been thier look for 20 years. Any further change or even a rebrand, I feel, would be merely change for changes sake rather than an improvement.

    It's an absolute travesty they chose to go with those crappy Rangers knockoffs over this beauty. Fix the beak and it's one of my favourite jerseys in all of sports.

    I don't know about you guys, but I think it's pretty clever that they put Joe Bruin's afternoon snack on the helmet. WHAT THE HOLY HELL? I thought this was TCU at first, which actually makes a modicum of sense. I'm waiting for the next big reveal when Duke puts a frozen raccoon on their helmet and Texas uses those blue space cat people from Avatar.

    You've had a week to marinate on this one, and still, the best defense for this concept you have is "It only sucks for one game, and you guys who discuss sports uniforms on the internet are probably nerds."Put in more effort if you want to maintain your troll game. You're coasting. And, as Deadspin has mentioned: Nike has made this game literally unwatchable for about 6% of the male population.

    This is an idea I've tried before... trying to find some new real estate for the Charger's jersey bolts. I don't like the current treatment, and the old style shoulder bolts would be really squeezed on a modern template. This idea kind of follows the Seahawks' and Browns' use of the front upper chest area. As always, thoughts and comments are welcome.

    OK, that shade of green blows their usual green away... no question about it. Unfortunately, everything else about both uniforms is horrific.

    Is that a Color Rush jersey or just a fashion jersey? Either way, I actually like it . . . just not with gold pants (and gold socks). And cleats and accessories...

    Here's the thing with the Color Rush stuff: All of the jerseys actually look pretty decent. If paired with white or a complementing colored pant, they'd look great. Give the Bills, Jets, and Titans white pants and we have winners all around there. And the Jags in black pants with the gold jersey would look really good, IMO.

    I don't like how stadiums have transformed from social cauldrons into corporate venues. Newer stadiums just don't look good to me anymore. There are exceptions of course but in general I think they're going in the wrong direction

    MASSIVE congratulations on your work with Eastern Illinois! For lots of reasons, it's rare for any of us to have the work we've developed here turn into something in the "real world". This is an incredible achievement. Have a cookie, you deserve it.

    Oh man, I wouldn't wish that upon poor Peyton. And I don't think the cap penalty would have mattered. Peyton is a smart guy, there is no way he honestly would have thought that he was a better fit in Washington than in Denver. The only players that come to Washington are free agents looking to get PAID so they can coast the rest of their career comfortably. Peyton isn't that. And last part of my self-deprecating rant: If that picture above was real and Peyton did sign with the Redskins, is there ANY chance he'd still be playing right now? I say, none whatsoever and his legacy would be tarnished. You'd have to remember his career in spite of what he did as a Redskin. If that picture was real, realistically we'd all be talking like: "Wow, can you believe it's already been 2 years since Peyton Manning died? Remember him?"

    You've done a good job here, tw. You've taken the best-looking Griffins logo (IMO), and put it with a real nice striping job. Good luck!

    If you're questioning the value of branding and being able to instantly identify the teams: Quote from Uni-Watch today: "If you had a hard time adjusting to the Bills wearing red, you weren’t the only one. Buffalo coach Rex Ryan offered this quote after the game: “Hell, I look out there and my team’s in red. Blue, I might have had a chance. But I’m like, ‘Who are they? Oh shoot, that’s us.'” Nice job, NFL."

    Perhaps, but can you give me an example of how they have done this in the past? I honestly think it is due to underwhelming viewership on Thursdays, and that alone. I think it is a short term project to get people to watch on Thursdays. Much like the Pro Bowl uniforms. Hi, Bort. My son is also named Bort. No, these have nothing to do with boosting viewership. These are about Nike marketing Nike and the league taking extra cash to allow for such blatant whoring. That's why they didn't wear white or blue pants, like people suggested. All red vs. all green. There were probably millions of tweets last night about how awful the game looked, and nearly as many dopes saying the jerseys were "ill" or some equivalent there of. There were hundreds of articles written about the game mentioning the shoulder-to-toe colors are part of the leagues "Nike Color Rush program." That's why it was done. Nike doesn't care that the game looked liked festering anus. They cared that people are talking about Nike products so much.

    . C'mon ... admit it ... with the exception of the Cleveland Browns new helmets, their next remake can't possibly come soon enough. It's so very tragic for this to happen to such a historic and traditional franchise with among one of the most dedicated fan bases. I mean geez,... those orange jersey numbers and nobs on their brown jerseys, along with those word-marks on their pants, and the word-mark being so large on the jersey makes me wanna barf. Thank goodness Paul Brown isn't still alive to of seen them.

    WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its one game people. Tighten up your panties and suck it up. I think the Jags shade of gold is pretty cool and UNIQUE. Which is what this Thursday Night Color Rush is supposed to be about. Something you don't see for the other 19 games of the season. Some of you really do need to settle down because your nerd-dom is really showing.

    Not to be confused with Wild hockey, which is when you try to clog up the neutral zone and pray that whichever goaltender you pulled out of someone else's ass can make 40 saves in a 2-1 win.
