  1. Didn't the Lions already force us to look at that ugly gray mess once this year? Thanks for nothing.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Agreed. I'm a big fan of the all-white, too, but I don't want the road maize pants to disappear completely. And white over maize vs. Scarlet and Gray is tough to beat.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    I don't get the love this board has for the color on color concept. USC v UCLA works because of the shared home field, and because those uniforms just happen to look nice together. And I guess if teams (say Georgia/Florida, for instance) play on a neutral field and have contrasting dark jerseys, then OK, why not? But Michigan, wearing their home colors in the shoe? Oh, hell, no.
  5. I guess. OR... those teams could just fix their uniforms for real, and not have the crutch of all those extra looks.
  6. Yeah, I realize that's not what anyone is asking for, but unfortunately, that isn't how these things work. You can't just say, here, we'll give you the ability to have an alternate helmet, but you have to promise to be discrete and tasteful with it. Given the option, the teams that are already cautious and careful with their visual brand will most likely remain so, and the teams that aren't will do something stupid. Plus, Nike's gonna Nike. Safest play is just to take it out of everyone's hands. One helmet, no worries. Now if we could just go back to only one alt jersey, restricted to twice a year, I'd be even happier.
  7. I have evidence that blessed 1 helmet rule is helping to keep the NFL safe from an ugly riot of mismatched uniform combinations. This evidence is on display on TV every Saturday in the fall.
  8. Why does team that wears the same damn ugly monochrome combo at every home game bother to announce it? I'm going to announce that I'll be using the bathroom tommorow.

    Great news... I'd just make it permanent. F*** no... Better not be.

    Mike Brown is way too cheap to fire a coach under contract.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 9

    To me, Miami has improved enough to not be outright objectionable anymore. And Jacksonville goes from pretty good to pretty bad based on the combo.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 9

    It's all relative, right? We are talking about a league with Cleveland, Cincinnati, Seattle, Tampa, Atlanta, Tennessee and Arizona. Hell, in that company, Dallas looks like the prettiest girl at the dance.

    When you say Detroit, do you mean the Detroit Lions? I'm not sure you've seen them play recently.
  15. I saw watching that Bears/Lions game... The first half when the sun was shining, that Chicago uniform was especially gorgeous. That's such a solid uniform that's remained unchanged so long it's easy to take it for granted. I don't know what I'd change... It's pretty much perfect.

    I dunno... I'm one of the original grumpy old guys on this site, and I think I kinda like these ND uniforms. I like that green anyway. I'm a sucker for bright green, tho.

    Wait... You dislike monochrome uniforms, but still claim to like grilled chicken? You've lost all credibility, my friend.

    Oldschoolvikings' NFL concepts - Falcons update 11/7/18

    Slight update to the Falcons' concept I posted up the page...
  21. I've been posting my NFL concepts for a few months, but I've been doing them just one at a time. I've gotten some nice feedback (thanks) but a single concepts they do seem to disappear rather quickly. I've decided to gather them altogether, along with a few new ones (like the following Cowboy concept), which seems to be the preferred way most of us do this. As always, let me know what you think. Starting with the NFC East,
