  1. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    All of these examples have 50+ years of equity built into them (not counting slight tweaks to the Cardinal and Viking heads). They would look very generic if they were introduced today, but their history provides weight that overcomes that fact.

    This one looks like something out of a Tom and Jerry cartoon.
  3. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    Fair enough. I would think his marching orders would be to make it look like a Rams blowout even if he was tilting at windmills. For the record, I assumed your favorite part was just it being the Packers program.
  4. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    These things are great. I have two comments: 1. I love how the 49ers program uses a shotgun since this was the season when the Niners took the league by storm with the original shotgun formation (or was at least the first full season, since it was introduced late in the 1960 season). 2. The Packers program looks it was designed as a Packers home program. It doesn't make sense for Rams to be butchered by the Packers.

  6. New Orleans Saints - A Uniform Odyssey

    Any chance the first Talbert picture shows a practice jersey? The other white jerseys you posted don't appear to be the same mesh material. As a another theory, maybe they only wore the mesh jerseys during warmer weather, such as in the preseason and early season. A number of teams such as the Dolphins and Vikings used plain short-sleeve jerseys during the same season that they used striped jerseys (though sometimes the Dolphins were mix-and-match during the same game). My recollection is that the plain jerseys were usually worn early in the season.
  7. New Orleans Saints - A Uniform Odyssey

    He was a single wing tailback at UCLA. That is more of a hybrid position, which involves both running and throwing. I've read in a number of places that the 49ers drafted him to be part of their then-revolutionary shotgun formation QB rotation (which subbed in a new QB on almost every play) because he was a threat to run or pass. John Brodie was used mostly to pass, while Bob Waters was used mostly to run. Now, back to our discussion of Saints uniforms.
  8. They look solid in a vacuum. However, the 49ers' three stripe look was damn near iconic. They just don't look right without it.
  9. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    I think this thing's rigged. I've run it 20 times and keep getting the same combination.

  11. infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL Week 5

    Agreed on both points. The white-on-white looks worlds better than the white-on-green. Actually, I would be perfectly fine if the Jets ditched the green pants completely.
  12. Unpopular Opinions

    How have I never noticed this before? Now I'm going to spend every Redskins game when they wear those socks looking at the stripes.
  13. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    Thirded. They're the same helmets. just with the throwback decals and facemasks.
  14. infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL Week 5

    I was hoping this would be the week the Ravens had a shot at No. 1. I forgot how many other good matchups there were.
  15. Names below the number

    Maybe it's because we're conditioned to expect the name on top, but I think it looks bad. I can't think of an example that I liked. I could have sworn that the late 70s - early 80s Knicks did this with the uniform with New York/Knicks below the number on the front. However, Google tells me that the NOB was normal.
