  1. I believe Gupti first brought this news in the 2017 NFL thread. Credit to him for putting it here first. I have just typed it up and included a few links to Twitter threads. According to Twitter account @madebytim, the Jacksonville Jaguars will be changing uniforms next offseason. The current talk is that this information is being disseminated during stadium tours, although there is no current official word. This is the 5th year of the current set so a change is possible. A quick rundown of the rumors indicate that Tom Coughlin has some significant input into the process, with the knowledge that he wants something "more traditional," does not like the emphasis on the gold and wants more teal in the design, and that this will be a complete change of the look. There are quite possibly some elements that could stay (the current away uniform is a pretty incredible update of the classic away uniform), including the "JAGS shield." One thing that is pretty much a sure change is the helmet. Both Tim of the @madebytim Twitter and Alfie Crow of Big Cat Country, the Jags' SB Nation site, have said they were sitting on the news. Link: https://twitter.com/MadeByTim/status/913435220334010369 Initial thread here: https://twitter.com/MadeByTim/status/913431383426699264 A bit more from London trip here: https://twitter.com/MadeByTim/status/913433955612991488 Most of the info can be found by clicking around that Twitter account. Again, nothing official but exciting to get rid of that helmet.
  2. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    See here's why I am hesitant on the throwback: the throwback should be the old away uniform, it's where they had all the playoff success in 96 and 97. But the new set has a great take on that, which finally, FINALLY brought back the teal numbers on the white jersey. I hope that stays. If there is a throwback to the old home uniform, then that means something will be different on the new home - different font, different number coloring, something. IDK man I love speculation but I just hope we get MORE TEAL and change the dang helmet.

I’m burying the lede a little bit but, I can confirm the rumors that have been bouncing around Twitter that the Jaguars will indeed have brand new uniforms for the 2018 season."
  4. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Someone in the Concepts section did a really good looking concept with the old-school sleeve stripes acting as the new sleeve caps. I'm not totally down with the sleeve caps but it sure was a better look than all-black. Man, the teal jerseys look really cool - when they are paired with the black numbers, the black pants look like they belong. When they did teal tops and black pants on the classic set, it never looked quite right as it did with the white pants - maybe changing the number color is the solution if that moves to a more permanent look. I would love if they kept on with the teal this season (it now represents a win) but I know that cannot happen. I do really hope they keep the number font, and I don't mind the shield. Honestly short of the helmet, and them not being able to decide what shade of gold they want (the gold on the helmet vs. the plastic-esque gold around the collar vs. the nasty mustard gold on the Color Rash and some of the merch), the set is pretty good if they switch the primary colored set around. For the helmet, I would like to see a return to gloss but considering they did the two-tone this last time, would it surprise you if they hydro-dipped the new one or something?
  5. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Have they worn the black jersey more than twice this year? Could they pull what they did in '12 getting everyone ready for the majority-black jerseys (phasing out the teal of the horrible accent-stripe uniforms) by wearing the teal ones for the remainder of the season? If they get a win at home in the teal, it's likely they could stick with it.
  6. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    The teal pants would be interesting, to say the least - the team has never (to my knowledge) had or worn teal pants. The only non-black or -white pants the team has ever worn is the awful dijon mustard gold Color Rash ones.
  7. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    It would be a horrible move if they got rid of the teal numbers on the away jerseys homage. That is one of the best things about the new set; from when the black pants/black alts were introduced and they moved to black numbers on that it killed the nostalgia - the Jags had some of their best wins in those classic away uniforms. So hopefully that stays. I don't think they go teal helmet, but who knows? That would be a bold change. The black-numbers-on-teal-jerseys is not the best look but I would expect more teal, maybe more like a 70/30 look that can somehow incorporate teal but get rid of the sleeves, because that's kind of awful. I like the IDEA of the stripes on the shoulders but the execution was not great. I'm sure they can come up with something, I just don't want a teal Starfleet uniform like the Titans have right now.

    In a piece about the teal uniforms for Big Cat Country, the Jaguars' SB Nation site, Alfie Crow writes: https://www.bigcatcountry.com/2017/10/18/16495204/new-jaguars-uniform-teal-alternate-bengals-2017 "I’m burying the lede a little bit but, I can confirm the rumors that have been bouncing around Twitter that the Jaguars will indeed have brand new uniforms for the 2018 season. I don’t know for sure, but I would assume the helmet will also change, for those who are asking. I do not know any specifics or details of what the new uniforms are, other than teal will be more prominent than the team’s current iteration."

    Those uniforms are AMAZING. They may be the best. I wish they were used as throwbacks. Just... man, that stirs somethin' up in ya.

  13. New Jaguars Uniforms

    It ain't just you....something about new logo/uniform announcements and unveilings just seems to bring all the closet fans/n00bs/#teamtrolls up out the woodwork. In this case, prior to this change first being announced, for the longest time Island_Style, Claystation360, ANGELCAT-IDA (I think), and Brian in Boston were the only real established, bonafide Jaguars fans most of us vets knew about. I don't doubt (in fact I know) several other genuine Jaguars fans eventually found their way to these boards and/or had been lurking in the shadows (!) and finally decided to emerge. The problem, though, is that at the same time lately this place has been overran with what seems to be the bottomfeeders/n00bs/#teamtrolls from the espn.com comments section, which in my mind has directly led to about some of the absolute dumbest and mind-numbingly immature/idiotic commentary this place has seen in my six or seven years here. (Oh and...if anyone wants any further evidence of the n00b/#teamtroll thing, just look at some of the usernames that have popped up around here lately.) I started lurking here after I found this place on a lark when the Seahawks uniforms were unveiled. A friend told me about it. Decided to register and slowly take a bigger part around here, since I mostly come to check up on the news. Most of the folks here are pretty cool.

    I knew there couldn't be a Jaguars thread without relocation talk. lol I really like the new uniforms. The helmets were a shock but they have grown on me. I think the all-white set is the best, they hearken back to the old-school days of the Jags in the playoffs. But other than the black numbers on the teal jersey, I like them. And the patch is great.
  15. Uniform guesses for the NFL 2013 season

    What if the the Seahawks break out the gray jersey on the road like they did last year versus the Bills?
  16. Uniform guesses for the NFL 2013 season

    My guess is that, in each game, one team will wear a colored jersey and one team will wear a white jersey.

    Hmm... different pants. I have to admit, it would be cool to see black, gold, and white for the pamts colors. Realistically though, pretty sure there will be black, white, and teal pants.

    It looks like the logo may be a bit more forward than before. Perhaps it comes together at the front or something? Looking good. Trust the Stache.

    Helmet.

    That's some good stuff.
  23. New Jaguars Uniforms

    Loving the teal numbers on the away. What a great surprise and a great way to hearken back to the AFC Championship days. Those white uniforms with the teal numbers were what the Jaguars were wearing when they got their exposure to America and beat the Bills and Broncos to make it to the championship game in their second year. Whoever came up with that should be applauded. I have been keeping an eye on the Jags' practice footage but they are still using the old helmets and practice jerseys. Nothing different there. The helmet will be okay, trust the Stache.

    So you guys just forget that the Patriots are red, white, and blue and based on Revolutionary War soldiers, right? This is a pretty huge military area. NAS Mayport is the second most valuable above-water ship asset on the eastern seaboard. There is a submarine base less than an hour up the interstate. There is an army base about an hour west of town. There are many former and retired military folks that live in the area. The military makes up a large part of the economy. So do public servants like police and firefighters, as there is a pretty huge fire training and police training school in the area too. So it does make sense to kind of honor that with the uniform design. Khan is about making the Jaguars more relevant to Jacksonville. The last good uniform design was the first one. The piping that has been present over the past years is just stupid. Even though jerseys were probably being sold, it wasn't a good jersey, I think we can all acknowledge that. There have been fan polls conducted and heavy research put into this. Khan has come to know the area and the people and wants to put out something unique and special. More power to him. I'm excited about Tuesday.
