    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    It's definitely starting to seem like someone on this thread is getting paid in relation to this league.
  2. 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,

    Oldschoolvikings' NFL concepts - Texans concept added 2/14/19

    I think my thought process might be hard to explain but I'll try... The stripes on the gray pants, as well as both jerseys, is thick blue and red, separated by thin white... Like the color pattern from the logo. On the red pants, that didn't translate directly, so I went with thick white and thick blue, and separated the blue of the stripe and the red of the pants with the same thin white.

    Hmm... ya, on my phone it's got a vaguely putty look to it. Not what I had in mind... I'll rework it.

    Thanks! Weird about the bronze look, though. It's supposed to be just plain old silver-gray, which is how it looks on my screen. Maybe I should adjust? What's everybody else seeing?

    Uniform / Logo Predictions For NFL's 100th Season in 2019

    Sad to it was not only their "first", but you could just say "only", as the next time the Vikings won the conference, it was no longer the NFL, but just the NFC. The '69 NFL championship was the last one before the final merger. However, you are correct about that uniform... it is glorious.

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    This is so obviously the answer. Everyone calm down... That logo is not going on the helmet.

    That's not going on a helmet. Plus, it's supposed to have black.

    2019 NFL Off-Season Thread

    Since 4 out of 5 people will be saying it'll be the Saints vs the Chiefs, I'm going to go ahead and say it won't be either of them. Because that's not the way it ever works.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    Any chance someone from Boston will be eating horse poop at this year's victory parade? Philadelphia set the bar pretty high.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    I don’t hate the Patriots. I’m not sure why I don’t, most of my life I’ve been a confirmed “dynasty hater”. My first sports hate as a wee little tyke was the 70’s Steelers (tho, mostly because they beat the Vikings in a SB). In the 90’s I hated the Redwings and the Cowboys (honestly, I can’t really remember not hating the Cowboys). I hated the Magic Johnson Lakers AND the Kobe Bryant Lakers, and am preparing to hate the LeBron Lakers. I hate all Yankees, forever. I didn’t hate the 49ers for some reason… probably because of “the catch” game, which hilariously broke Cowboys hearts. And now, I don’t hate the Patriots, which seems weird to me. In fact, although I usually think I’d rather not see them get in, once they’re in I find myself hoping they’ll win, which I ended up doing again last night. I guess as long as they’re going to be great, I’d rather see them be really great than just pretty great… I was surprised to find myself really disappointed when the mediocre Giants led by huge doofus Eli Manning wrecked their perfect season. It was like seeing Einstein get corrected on the math problem by a freshman student… who wants to see that? It probably also helps that I don’t know any annoying Patriot fans. With all those other teams I mentioned, I had to deal with bunches of bandwagon jackasses, none worse than the “America’s Team” a-holes. The only Patriot fan I personally know was born and raised in Boston, is a fine upstanding police officer, and one of the nicest guys I know. So anyway, I get why everyone hates them… they’ll never be my favorite team, but I’m willing to ride this out and see the history first hand. For what it’s worth, I don’t hate Golden State, either.

    College Football Uniforms - 2019

    Horned Frogs, both as a name and as a mascot/visual, is easily one of the best in college sports. I love it. And I love it significantly more than their over-designed attempts to appeal to 16 year old athletes.

    Los Angeles Rams Confirm Throwback Uniforms For Super Bowl

    In a vacuum, the Saints uniform isn't as terrible as, say, the Browns or Buccaneers, but it's especially infuriating if you consider how easy (and ridiculously obvious) it would be to give them a top 5 look. Match the golds. Put the helmet stripe on the pants. And burn those horrific black pants.
