    Another Purple Rain reference on the shoulder.

    Possibly Minnesota's 'City' edition -- Wasn't sure if it was real, but if you look closely, you can see Minnesota's 'City' set appears to be dark purple on that chart.

    This season alone, OKC will be making use of navy, blue, orange, yellow, and now this turquoise color. If you want to count last year, we can include the dark and light gray gradient from the City set as well. We've also now seen 4 variations of 'OKC' across the chest over the past 2 or 3 years -- wordmark OKC (last year's City), straight OKC (sunset orange set), sliced OKC (Statement), and the native OKC (this year's City). It'd be 5 if you count them putting the actual OKC logo across the chest with the sleeved home set from a couple years ago. The City and Statement sets being so much different than their original look really make it seem like they could be testing the waters for a potential rebranding. Either that, or they have a serious identity crisis. Maybe both? If/when the rebranding happens, I would love to see them clean up their color palette and stick with 2 damn colors.

    The look on his face says it all.

    What would everyone here think of the logo on the waistband as the next primary logo? I like it much better without the navy/back fill and outline seen across the chest. The native patterns around 'OKC' would make for an incredibly unique and instantly recognizable logo amongst all of the circular logos in the NBA. I had been working on a native-themed concept 2 or 3 years ago (see spoiler below), so I'm thrilled to see the team moving in this direction. It makes too much sense. Might need to update my concept using that waistband logo.

    On a side note — does Minnesota have the best stadium lighting in the NFL? Those gameday photos look sharp.

    Hate to quote myself but I started wondering... What if the real reason they made the numbers so big was to show off how much room they have on the front of this new template?

    They look palatable here, but that could be from the photographer having them crouch down and lean in with those 'football stances' to effectively mask the size of the numbers. For anyone interested, here's what reducing the number size a smidge might look like --

    It looks like they wanted to make the inner-stroke more prominent, so they enlarged the numbers to show off the added detail. Then they needed to chop off the collar to make room for the aforementioned oversized numbers. ...Which gave them the need to add the Ducks patch on the jersey to give some form of identification. Then they slapped an oversized O on the pants to make sure that logo was visible somewhere.

    I'm with you -- it's been all downhill since Mariota left. Their coaches polos could offer some clues as for color combinations. I wouldn't be surprised to see a gray/black/green set in the mix. New tweet from Oregon:

    To be fair, my comment was directed at the teal/white color combination -- not the details of the uniform. You won't find a bigger fan of the Fred Taylor set than me, and I would still have preferred if they'd gone back to it. The Jaguars weren't able to pull off the teal/white look with the previous set due in large part to the black numbers on the teal jersey. Not to mention the two-tone helmet completely taking away from the look. The set before that had the teal flake helmet, which never quite looked black (or teal) -- plus they had that atrocious piping slapped all over the uniforms that still makes me cringe. (I actually hated that set even more than the last set.) You could argue that they have over-corrected a bit on these after going to the extreme with their last uniforms, but I'm okay with it. Simple isn't always a bad thing, and as traditional as it looks, the clean lines are actually quite contemporary. We've seen where trying to be cutting-edge has taken their identity over the past decade. We've also seen what Nike has done to teams who were trying to push the envelope -- our previous set, Tennessee, Tampa Bay, Cleveland, etc.... and no thanks. I don't see people getting sick of these after 2 seasons. People tend to get sick of the trendy, over-designed sets that look dated shortly after unveiling. If anything, I see this as the kind of set that could grow on people given that they choose the right combinations to wear. Again, it goes back to what I said was the misstep of sticking with the black primary. Being minimalist and clean is great, but not at the expense of your primary colors. Now was the time to switch back to teal as the primary set so that you wouldn't have this problem of needing to inject teal and gold into the look. My fear is that we'll consistently see black/white and black/black at home, with the white/black and white/white on the road. I'm still interested in seeing black/teal on the field, but I don't know how often they'll actually wear the teal pants. I had mocked this up prior to the unveiling as something I would have loved to see -- These tweaks would make their uniform absolutely perfect in my eyes --

    I loved seeing the Jaguars actually look like the Jaguars again. I especially loved seeing the teal-over-white paired with white shoes. So much nostalgia for me... The biggest misstep they’ve made with this set is keeping black as the primary jersey. The signature look will always be teal-over-white, (with teal-over-black making a great alternate to that).

    Red/Red/Gold really should be the primary look. On the other hand, if they had kept the gold pants, we could have been blessed with this potential combo --
