    NFL Increases Use of Alternate Uniforms in 2018

    I don't know how I missed this, but I lean toward the positives on this. Teams like the Browns now don't have to be forced to wear the worst of their options, and we finally get to see more of the good alts (and yes I know it's a two way street, but unlike the NBA I feel the NFL alts are generally aesthetically pleasing).

    NFL 2018 changes

    I really should've done my research prior to my Cardinals comment (but I do think they'd be 10x better in a red facemask). The Vikings 00's era uniforms exemplified the absolute worst in the uniform design of that era: too many garish elements, culminating with jersey piping. We see this with other uniforms such as the Rams, Bengals, and of course Pats, but this might take the cake as the most unnecessary of the bunch. It doesn't help that the sets before and after this are very strong uniforms. Speaking of the Rams, they should just go to blue and gold and call it a day.

    My bad, I meant the italics still look good even though I prefer the blocks. As for grey facemasks, I'm generally against it unless grey is one of the teams colors (whether it be primary, secondary, even tertiary). I understand that they're vestiges of a different era of football, but in my opinion it generally adds nothing to a teams overall composition. Example: the Cards and Colts looked much better when they wore red and blue as their facemask colors respectively. They were both dulled when they switched back to grey.

    Yes. I've given plenty of thought into this, but I think the italics should stay. First of all, they don't look bad at all; in fact they look decent. Secondly, it's been over twenty years since they've kissed the blocks goodbye, and the italics have their "own" legacy. That being said, these throwbacks don't offer much, although it will appease me to see the B's in vintage gear. I too was hoping for yellow gold uniforms. I guess this goes along with what the late Dan Rooney said when choosing for CR: The Steelers are a 'black' team. I will say that there is definitely some variation between the blocks and italics though. I always forget that Rod Woodson and Bell wear/wore the same number, but with the blocks that will be engraved in my memory.

    I don't know if this has been discussed already (my apologies if so), but I find it interesting that on the Madden 19 cover TO is wearing the Cowboys standard 1983 whites but with silver pants instead of seafoam green. I hope that translates to the on the field product, but that's mostly wishful thinking.

    Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    I somehow missed the unveiling (I read a Yahoo post about it, what a bummer). I think this is a strong case of "Never know what you got 'till it's gone". I was never privy toward the Titans' uniforms (especially after they eliminated the Reebok sheen in 2012), but I never had any real issues either. It looked like it was a jumbled mess...but somehow it worked (I do think they benefited from reaching the Super Bowl the year they unveiled that set). Today, they still look like a jumbled mess, but unlike the '99 set, the elements of the new uniform just don't mesh. The entire mono craze hitting the league right now is beyond dumb, and this might be the most egregious example. They've pretty much done away with Columbia (except the third uni), and the number font...oh that font... They had so much potential, and blew it. It might not be Buccaneers bad, but it's bad none the less.

    Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    Yes to the block numbers, no to the grey facemasks. The ones they've been wearing since '78 work just fine. As for the Titans, I'm thrilled about them ditching a white helmet (seriously, how many white helmets does the league need?), but it does bum me out they're going the navy route. Not surprising, but didsapointing for sure.

    Pittsburgh Steeler Jersey Numbers

    This is a hard topic indeed. While I love the classic block abd the era it represented, I'm gonna have to go with the italisized Futura; partly because I grew up during this era, but it also updated their classic look without sacrificing anything. I'm kind of shocked though to read about the disdain for their gold road pants though. I think it works well, especially when compared to the white pants they wore in the 60s and early 70s.

    2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    Congrats Philly. Guess we can't brag about being the only Super Bowl winning team in the state anymore. Y'all deserve this moment. NE faught hard, nothing to be a ashamed of. I have no ill will toward any Patriot at the moment...except Kraft, who I always have contempt for. Him and his elitist attitude can take a hike.

    I come home from work to find that (on my TV) this :censored:ing game is on. I care not to watch New England advance to another Super Bowl, but since the game is on in my room AND the living room I have no choice.

    2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    I don't think this is a fair or true assessment. You're asking a team who just lost on one of the more heartbreaking plays in recent memory to come back on to the field to run a meaningless play based on a completely arbitrary rule. I don't blame them one bit for taking their time to get back out there.

    The Saints out Vike'd the Vikings.

    Because every coach (except Belichick it seems) makes mistakes. They are human after all. Hell, we saw the typical mistakes show up again this year: Andy Reid and Mike Tomlin: Questionable game management (has always been and will always be their biggest flaws) Sean Payton: Reactionary, emotional calls (has always been and will always be his biggest flaw)

    Why would I wanna visit your dump in the first place? Minny doing what a #2 seed should - drive a stake through their opponent defensively. Tomlin should watch this game, since apparently he can't stop Blake Freakin' Bortles.
