    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    2018 Jaguars...
  2. The Rams should take a page from Tucker McElroy's playbook: "Well, suppose we leave our blue and gold St Louis jerseys in the locker room and go out there wearin' our 1973-99 uniforms anyway? Whatcha gonna do about that? You gonna stop us? Goodell? You're gonna look pretty funny tryin' to eat corn on the cob with no (censored) teeth."
  3. The Rams should just do what the 49ers did in 1994...wear the throwbacks anyway. At worst they would be fined by Goodell every week. Besides, people aren't exactly lining up to buy the blue and gold jerseys from St Louis anyway.

    Lost Sports Logos?

    One could argue that the Browns have been dormant since their return in 1999. Ba-da-boom.

    Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Clearly these unis were designed in a bubble. People didn't like the 2009 rebrand, and the 2013 one was even worse. Instead of learning from the fan backlash in both cases, they went out and made a uniform so bland it defies common sense. No pants stripes, no borders to the better than practice uniforms. I don't see these selling very well, there's absolutely nothing unique about them. The 95-08 throwbacks will outsell these. Maybe Coughlin & his cronies will learn from that in 2023 when they do the next rebrand.

    Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    That would be just like the Jags...after all when they designed the 2013 helmet they sent the equipment manager to Home Depot to get a few cans of matte black spray paint...and made sure he brought back the receipt.

    Color Rush Thursday is dead

    Glad it's not mandatory any more, but there are some elements of the Color Rush I'd like to see stick around as alts, but they shouldn't have to wear them together. Here are the ones that need to go entirely: Patriots white pants Bengals white jersey and white pants Raiders white pants Eagles black pants (bring back the silver!) Cowboys white pants Packers white pants Saints white pants Cardinals black jersey 49ers black jersey and black pants
  8. Those jerseys always made me think of an out-of-control ice skater plowing through a hot dog stand.

    Other Birds as the Orioles Logo

    That is awesome! Could you do an Eclectus Parrot (here), penguin, or vulture?

    Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    You're darn tootin'. Teams chasing the latest trend got us the 2002 Bills kitchen sink uniforms, and the 2003 Falcons/2006 Vikings/2005 Cardinals crazy stripes disasters. At least the Vikings had the sense to ditch them and go with what they have now, which I think is their best uni of all. Trend-chasing also was responsible for the teal-infused '90s. Now we're in the "let's cram some black into our uniforms to sell merchandise" phase. Players should NEVER have any input on uniforms for the reasons you just stated. Notice all the teams that consistently are in the Top 10 every year for uniforms don't chase trends or listen to players' advice (Packers, Steelers, Bears, Yankees, Bulls, Spurs, Canadiens, Cowboys, etc.). A team with a deep tradition should say to players it's a privilege to put our uniform on, we don't need your design advice.

    And they wonder how Fake News spreads around the world so quickly!

    Why does no team use earth tone colors? 

    Always thought the Cardinals would look good if they replaced the white with a sand/khaki color.

    "It looks like somebody's nightmare."
  14. Just realized that this Sunday's game will be their first time in their history that the Vikings have worn purple pants for a postseason game.
  15. According to my old Excel files that I use to track this stuff, the midnight green pants were a rarity until 2003. Here's my (hopefully correct) breakdown: 1996: at Green Bay, at Atlanta, at Indianapolis, DALLAS (4) 1997: SAN FRANCISCO (w/ green jerseys, first instance of A1C uniform in NFL) (1) 1998: at NY Giants, at Green Bay (2) 1999: at NY Giants, at Chicago, at Arizona, ARIZONA, TAMPA BAY, DALLAS (6) 2000: at New Orleans, at NY Giants (2) 2001: at NY Giants, at Washington, at Tampa Bay, DALLAS (4) 2002: WASHINGTON (w/ green jerseys, A1C again) (1) They wore them regularly until 2013, when they only wore them 3 times. In 2014, they didn't wear them until late in the year due to Nike's problems getting the green pants made.
