  1. The Browns had lost 14 straight in their brown jerseys from 2014 until 2016. They're currently lost 14 straight in their white jerseys, after their loss to the Saints...although they might break that next week against the Chokeland Faders.
  2. FINALLY! I've been waiting for them to do this since 1995!
  3. Are you allowed to share...or will black helicopters start hovering above your house?

    You're darn tootin'.
  5. I'll drink to that. Of course, I don't need a reason to drink but that's another story. I've been waiting for the Ravens to do this since they dropped the old black pants after the 1997 season. On top of that, it's also further proof that the NFL doesn't consider pants to be part of the 'official' uniform that can't be tampered with for 5 years. Heck, I doubt they're even in the style guide for this season.
  6. I can't stand the suspense...please tell. It wouldn't frustrate me, that's for sure.

    The problem with the Buccs' pewter is that it really looks brown, especially since they ditched the shiny material for the pants. I always thought the Buccs' would have looked better if they had adopted a color called 'champagne' which was used by the USFL's Michigan Panthers:

    Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    I still don't get how those uniforms were green-lit by the NFL in the first place. I liked the new shade of orange, the brown facemask, and the return of the orange pants...but the numbers on the brown jersey are impossible to see and the word down the leg stripe is just preposterous. Hate to say it, but I have a feeling they will just go back to their boring throwback look. There's just not much they can do with such a bland uniform history without making a wholesale radical change like the Buccaneers did in 1997, or the Titans in 1999.

    I'm not so sure about that, although everyone is entitled to their opinion. At that point, the Bucs only had those unis for 16 years...which is nothing compared to the Steelers, Raiders, Cowboys, Packers, or Bears, just to name a few. I think the new, larger helmet logo was a good idea, but the rest of the 2014 uniform should be scrapped.

    Teams have changed pants with no notice before, even during the regular season. Easy to do since the NFL only regulates jerseys and helmets. The Ravens broke out gold pants late in the season in 2015, which no one had seen before. The Jets in 1978 wore their 1977 uniforms with the new helmet during preseason, then wore the regular uniforms in Week 1. I also recall the Bengals in 2003 showing up in black pants in Week 1, which were not seen or mentioned before...same with the Colts in 1995 with the blue pants.

    I may be getting old and my peepers are starting to fail me...but do the Jags' jersey numbers have a border or not? Sometimes it looks like there's a thin black border, other teams I can't tell and start questioning my sanity. The helmet definitely looks better, but I also think they need some kind of pants stripe to avoid the practice uniform look.
  12. No kidding, if professional athletes need to be motivated by three strips of tape down the center of their helmet to play harder, then it really says a lot about why this team has gone January 31st over the last 2 seasons. On the other hand...if I wanted to get off the Browns squad I wouldn't bother to try earning those stupid stripes in the first place.

    LA Rams 2018 Uniform Discussion

    Sounds like the Rams took my suggested Tucker McElroy Approach, and it worked. Goodell blinked!

    Grey Facemasks For Everyone*

    Count me in on Team Hate 'Em. It's jarring to see a grey piece of equipment on teams that don't have grey/silver in their color schemes (Cardinals, Bills, Colts, 49ers). If they can color the shoes, belts, gloves, tape, etc. then facemasks are fair game. Cardinals - should have a black facemask Bills - blue Cowboys - blue, if they can ever decide which shade to use Colts - blue Raiders - black 49ers - red Buccaneers - just blow it up already Giants and Lions are OK, although I'm not completely sold on the Lions 'chrome' look.

    Yep, the red facemask indeed.
