  1. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    “Honestly, if we’re out there balling, then it don’t really matter” -Jalen Ramsey, nicely saying he doesn’t like these uniforms right in their promo video lmao
  2. Ranking the NFL/Nike Uniform changes

    Lions - A I loved this set from the day I saw it. A great job of referencing the past while still keeping it current and interesting. Vikings - A Another great redesign from Nike. A true modern classic in my opinion. Seahawks - A I love the Seahawks' look. They're flashy and modern without being overly garish. They're one of the few exceptions of teams that look good in monochrome. Dolphins 2.0 - A A simple, yet much needed update. I never knew just how muddled the previous color scheme was until I saw these. Dolphins 1.0- B- This set was solid and provided a needed refresh of the previous set. The use of navy was ok (but obviously unecessary) and personally I think the new logo is solid. The font is ok, but could definitely be improved. Titans - C+ There's a lot I genuinely like about this set. The helmet is fantastic and the sword yoke is cool. The set's biggest downfalls for me are the side panels and pants. The font has characters that need to be reworked as well. Jaguars 1.0 - C+ This set has always received way too much hate IMO. People couldn't look past the admittedly garish helmets to see that the rest of the set was really nice. I'll miss the gold. Jaguars 2.0 - D+ The Jags listened to criticism, but overcorrected greatly. To me, dullness is equal to tackiness, and this set is astronomically dull. Helmets are the only thing I like. Browns - D+ In typical Browns fashion, this entire unveiling was the joke of the league. I like the brighter colors and stripes, but that's about it. The contrast stitching looks terrible and the team name down the leg doesn't work here at all. They still desperately need to get a real logo. Buccaneers - D- This set is obviously very flawed. I do love the helmets with the larger logo, but that's it. The digital clock font is a misstep too great to overlook, and as a result, they are my least favorite Nike NFL redesign.
  3. I like it! I'd like to see a version where the corners are more rounded off so it's reminiscent of the current font while still featuring your improved forms.
  4. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    To me, by far the strongest element to the new Titans' look is the helmets. I really genuinely think they're beautiful. If we're pointing out anything that is unpolished in the set, I'd start below the neck.
  5. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Reflecting on the two reveals today, I realize how strange it is that I really dislike one (the Jags) and love the other (the Phins) since both are pretty similar in how simplistic they are. Yet, since the Dolphins embraced their bright, beautiful colors, their set is timely and stunning while still remaining simplistic and traditional. If the Jags had simply added more teal to the aways and outlined the numbers in a gold outline, I bet I'd really like these. A pants stripe of any kind would be nice too.
  6. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    The font is nice, although I'll miss the old one. Helmets look good too. Everything else sucks, I hate how plain these are. Black and white being the emphasis is such a failure. I'll be rooting for yet another change in 2023.
  7. YIKES. I really hope this is satire. Blame the teams themselves, not Nike. Brands evolve, change happens, there's no need to be so personally offended by it. Frankly, I don't love every new design either, but I'd hate to live in a world where no teams ever change their look. Nike simply follows the team's instructions. They aren't holding a gun to anybody's head to adopt anything. As far as having to be a football player to understand uniform design, I think you know how ridiculous of an idea that is.
  8. The Houston Texans, Carolina Panthers, and the Denver Broncos come to mind. More recently, the Lions and Vikings have adopted great modern sets. I also love the Seahawks' look, although that'd be much more controversial here. I'm also not sure that this statement makes any sense. What if I don't like this uniform mock up because I feel that it poorly accentuates their identity? To me, primarily black and white uniforms with plain block numbers look bad especially in the context of the vibrant identity of the Jaguars. In fact, I think that most would agree that the emphasis of black over teal is a total disconnect to the team's identity.
  9. The only way that those would be an upgrade is with the helmets. Everything else looks like a big step back.
  10. I know that silver doesn't really make sense for the Jags, but I can't help but just love this color scheme. It just demonstrates how much better they would look if they focused on the vibrant teal and gold over black.
  11. I think that the lesson in all of this is that marketing shouldn't be taken as gospel. Like a lot of things in sports, these releases share a lot of the same vocabulary regardless of what they're actually describing. Buzzwords like "traditional" sound nice, and that's really all that they are meant to do. As other posters have been pointing out, a term like "tradition" is more open to a wider interpretation for a younger team like the Jaguars. I really believe that in this case it's simply referring to a cleaner, simpler design with the removal of the hated two-tone helmets. I guess we'll see who to believe soon.
  12. This sounds extremely similar to the leaks we've seen.
  13. The NFL (6/32; Bears added)

    I love all of these. I visited Atlanta this weekend and after seeing Atlanta United stuff everywhere, I am all in for the addition of gold to the Falcons scheme. As a fan, your Titans concept is great too.
  14. College Football uniforms- 2018

    Nevermind.
  15. Philadelphia 76ers reveal new logo for upcoming playoff run

    I like the idea, it just needs way better execution.
