  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.

    Don't have time to search Tweets first thing in the morning at work! Hahahaha I found it tho!
  4. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    Uni Watch posted this "tease." I tried to blow it up and couldn't make out anything. The helmet may not be white. Then again it may be the Power of Photoshop (TM).
  5. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Man someone on Twitter posted a teal helmet with an all-white logo. That would look pretty. Won't happen, but it looks pretty. lol

    Yeah but when the stupid stripe ones came out Weaver said that they were going to be "classic and simple" so I hope that the design is better than those. Team Twitter confirmation:

    According to the article also, club and suite season ticket renewals get a new jersey. Must be nice lol
  9. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Probably at the State of the Franchise in March, or pre-draft. "The final design will be unveiled later this spring."

    Regarding the font I am of the same mind you are. They not only use the font on the Twitter but also throughout their website, on most all the media releases, and throughout stadium signage and it's part of the graphics package for the scoreboard and stuff. I really, really hope it stays.
  12. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I think I would be ok with a version of the original uniforms, with the updated number font. I will miss the shield a little if it really is gone - and I'm thinking too that gold will be much, much less emphasized (maybe a sleeve stripe). The Jags put out another tweet referring to "black, white and teal" - no gold. https://twitter.com/Jaguars/status/963023907551784965

    So basically "we're getting rid of the crap on the shoulders" = conservative
  14. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Speculation! Do the practice jerseys give us any insight into the new design? Solid panels going from the armpit down to the bottom of the jersey here. https://www.fanatics.com/nfl-jacksonville-jaguars-collectibles-and-memorabilia-malik-jackson-jacksonville-jaguars-fanatics-authentic-practice-used-number-90-teal-and-black-jersey-from-the-2016-nfl-season/o-2405+t-70596991+d-86880060+f-4607656+z-9-1476122935?_s=GPA_CA&_p=8429&sku=8864068
  15. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Disagree on the black pants all the time. If there's one consistent thing they need to keep, it is the teal away numbers. That carries over that classic team mojo.

    Regarding the black piping jersey (I don't have another good name for it), that was probably part of a transition to the current set. When the piping set was introduced, it was the former owner's intention to get the team back to a uniform look, no alts, and everything a certain way. There was the teal jersey with white pants and the white jersey with black pants, and that was it. It was also a time when the team wasn't doing great, they had just fired Jack Del Rio (Mularkey's one season wasn't any better) so how do you drum up a little revenue and excitement? New jerseys, that's how, and so the new owner (Khan) got whatever kind of clearance he needed from the NFL to turn the formerly primary teal into an alternate jersey that year, and wore the black-on-black as the "primary" colored jersey. Considering the fan reaction to the teal jerseys and the team is 2-0 in them this year, I would expect the new set to feature a lot more teal. Not for nothing, but has a team ever worn an alternate jersey in the playoffs?
  19. 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.

    https://www.bigcatcountry.com/2017/10/18/16495204/new-jaguars-uniform-teal-alternate-bengals-2017 "Fans have been asking for years when the teal would return, and it will finally return in what will be the Jaguars final season in the current uniform. 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."
  21. 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?
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
