    NFL Playoffs Thread

    What's even the damn point anymore?
  2. NFL teams: Dark colors are cool and proffessional looking. Also NFL teams: Dark colors make us too hot so let's wear all white for half our home games.
  3. It's the best possible uniform match-up under the circumstances, but it is not great. I wouldn't say it's awful either, but both uniforms have issues and are inferior to other uniforms they have worn.
  4. People have extremely short attention spans now, and you need to constantly flash shiny objects in front of them to keep them entertained. Also marketing. Gotta sell those jerseys. The mainstream interest in sports uniforms is extremely shallow. It basically boils down to, "Oh sh!t, new uniforms! These are !!!!!!" With no real further discussion. Although it is nice that now I can talk about uniforms without being immediately told to shut up. Now I can talk about the colors of the uniform before being told nobody cares.
  5. College football needs to be blown up. What's even the f#cking point anymore? Bring on legitimate minor league football and save us from this crap.
  6. Ugh. This Notre Dame team is better than this. But of course injuries and terrible playcalling strike again. Not saying they'd be winning, but it should be much closer.

    So that's where your name comes from. Here I thought you just liked kicking water.

    NFL changes 2019

    The Falcons' number font is fine, and i like the general idea of the pants stripe, although it could be executed better. The jersey is a hot mess though.

  10. So did people ever view the University of Tennessee as "weak", "soft", or "gay" for their uniforms? It's besically the same aesthetic, minus the red accents and cheesy logo. I just don't understand why the Bucs got so much hate for the creamsicles, but everyone seemed fine with Tennessee. Was it just the logo? Was it that NFL fans were/are more homophobic than college fans?

    The Freedom Football League

    Those are some terrible team names. Got a good laugh out of Ohio Players. I hope they're playing in Dayton.

    I've always thought that "Midwest" was a terribly broad and vague regional term, and I've never considered myself a "Midwesterner". I've always preferred Great Lakes and Great Plains as regions. I feel much more connected to the western parts of PA and NY, and southern Ontario than I do with Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Missouri.
  13. Notre Dame looks completely unprepared for this game. Not that that's anything new for Brian Kelly.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 11

    Not only do I miss those beautiful uniforms, but I miss the Texans wearing red socks. So simple, but it makes a huge difference.

    And Sammy Baugh's #33 is the only number officially retired by Washington.

    That shade of blue looks fantastic. Everything else about these is incredibly boring. No front numbers, no collar or placket piping, no sleeve patch. The wordmark doesn't even use the marlin on the M. There's nothing. They make a big stink about their "colores" and they barely even use them in any meaningful or interesting way.

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    I think we're missing the obvious inspiration here...

    The pictures they posted of one of the murals is definitely using red. It's not as bright and pinkish as the actual team color in the graphics, but it does suggest that it's not the same red-orange they currently use.

    I really like the green. The problem was pairing it with all that navy.

    Mike Tirico just summed it up perfectly: "Blue on green is NOT announcer friendly."

    The kelly green is a huge improvement over the darker green, but all of that navy muddles what could be a great uniform.

    I really hope the hat for that jersey has a blue bill and button.

    That's a horrible picture anyway, but that is bad. As far as I can recall, any time they've worn green jerseys they have also had matching gear and matching green logos on the pants (at least since they started putting logos on the pants). This just looks like they went out and bought green jerseys on a whim and were too cheap to get anything else green. They look like a High School. Gold or white numbers, with green gear and pants logos. This shouldn't have been that hard, Under Armour. You failed at something even Adidas got right. Congratulations.

    That's probably exactly what happened, and I've always hated that mentality. They've worn green for almost a century, and won several National Championships and Heismans while in green. But I do like that so many of the sports have embraced green recently, and it's nice to see the football team with a regular green again, even if it is with the worst possible number color. Although I fear that with Wimbush starting, It may just give people an excuse to continue believing the stupid "curse" of the green jersey.
