  1. Found this documentary of the 1984 Seahawks. At 5:31, you can see Luke Prestridge punting from - and Paul Johns returning to - a blank end zone.
  2. Was bored; did some research: In the 10 seasons that the NFL playoffs included 10 teams and went a full 16 games (1978-1981, 1983-1986, 1988-1989), 39 teams finished within a half game of 9-7 (either 9-7, 9-6-1, or 8-7-1), and 18 of them made the playoffs. Fun anomaly: no team finished with any of those three records in 1985. I did not include the 1982 season, in which the season ended after 9 games due to a player strike and featured a 16-team playoff tournament. I also left out the 1987 season, which also featured a player strike, resulting in one week of games being cancelled and three weeks being played by replacement players, which seemed to dramatically increase parity, as 15 of the league's 28 teams finished between 6-9 and 9-6. It is important to note that the AFA has slightly different seeding rules than the NFL. However, only 3 9-7 teams would have bumped a better team out of the playoffs under AFA rules: the 9-7 New York Giants earned the 5 seed in the NFC in 1981; under AFA rules, the 10-6 Denver Broncos would have made the playoffs instead. In 1989 this happened twice, as the Houston Oilers and Pittsburgh Steelers claimed the AFC's two wildcard spots at 9-7 while the Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers finished 10-6. Ultimately, this means that if the NFL played under AFA rules, 15/39 of these teams would have made the playoffs, compared to 1/12 in 3 seasons in the AFA. Sorry for nerding out, but I like weird statistics like this.
  3. but the Angels play in Anaheim
  4. I really like the double purple; I don't like the double gold. I think that, along with all the small, intricate details on the base of the crown, makes the logo look really busy. I think if you simplified that a bit, you'd have a really good set. The uniform design is really solid.
  5. These are all really well done. I like the new updates, but I think the Knights alt looks better with the star on the front. I don't think the helmet translates well to neon.

    I don't think the bat wings on the dark green background work very well. It's sort of getting lost in the end zones and on the alt helmet to the point where it's hard to tell what it is. Other than that though, this series is pretty close to perfect. Keep it up.
  7. Congrats on three years. That's a lot of time to put in to something that doesn't exist, but trust me when I say I've enjoyed reading it all. I was really pulling for Zeke and the Ghosts there, but props to Minnesota for outplaying them. Looking forward to next year - hopefully the Caps can be a tiebreaker or two more relevant....
  8. You can tell Cincinnati hasn't been in the playoffs recently; you must be out of practice typing them into the playoff picture. Good to see them get the win, even if their name was misspelled. Also, LaDell Throckmorton might be my new favorite player just because of that name. Kinda sucks that he's a Miner though....
  9. Man, that white helmet looks good. Maybe it belongs further down the line, but don't give up on that idea. Beautiful.

    I think you could make the T work if it was more of a shape and less of a block letter, if that makes sense. Kinda like that patch of white on Bevo's forehead. I don't like the star at all, but I do think it looks good blank and it might sit better with people if it was simpler and didn't have as much going on.

    I would agree that the T seems too obvious and overstated. Maybe if you made it a little smaller, thinner, etc. it would work better. Otherwise, this looks really good. I think the cream works well for Texas.
  12. I found that on the teams' Wikipedia pages, which in turn linked me to this Encyclopedia Britannica Article about the NFL team and the MLB team's official history page.
  13. These all look really nice. I especially like what you did with the Cowboys, and the Ravens, Bills, and Packers logos look really cool. I had to look it up, but it turns out both teams were named after their shade of cardinal red.
  14. Great round of playoffs and great work as always. Nice to see teams like Nova Scotia, Long Island, and Milwaukee making deep runs. However, you forgot to mention one of the greatest comebacks ever: Seattle lost 4 games in the first round but still managed to win their series against Chicago. All kidding aside, I love what you're doing here. Keep it up.
