  1. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    That is just atrocious.
  2. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Well, not exactly the same. The older NY uniform has the TV numbers on the sleeve. With the absence of sleeve stripes or team logos, it's very easy to fit TV numbers on the sleeve, even on current cuts (see the Oakland Raiders). Still even with an empty sleeve, the numbers were stuck up on the shoulders, which is also true of the Nike designed Broncos' uniform. Yet in CFB, where the Nike logo gets a front display, Nike will often design jerseys with traditional on-sleeve TV numbers (Michigan State pops to mind, I'm sure there are others). You could certainly make the argument that the reason Nike doesn't want to put TV numbers on the sleeve in the NFL is because the League makes them put the swoosh there, and they don't want number interfering.
  3. 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,

  5. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    Wait... so the jersey detail is double gray and the pants detail is double gray, but the helmet stripe is gray and white? Why the F would they do that? Am I seeing that wrong?

    So, what's going on with that sleeve cuff? Is it an extra piece sewn in?
  7. I've never posted a hockey concept before. I just recently got a template together, so I thought I'd try it out. I had a lot of fun making it. Thoughts?
  8. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    Well, I guess if someone considers the Seahawks' over designed uniform to be "remotely decent", it shouldn't be surprising they don't like the Lions' and the Vikings' redesigns.
  9. So, I seem to be running into some ridiculous prejudice against the color scheme Brown and Black... apparently ignoring nature's greatest design, the Beagle; I give you this expansion team, the Beagles... (I await my check from the NHL);

  13. Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    Did I think about college football? Oh, Lord, I completely forgot to think about college football!! Holy crap! Thank God you're here, Mr. Brown1. I'm going to go think about college football for a while. I'll probably be gone for a bit, but I really need to spend some time thinking about college football.

    I've been reading a lot on this thread about this "trend"... can we discuss this? So, by my count, there are now 10 teams with single color numbers. They are; Packers, Giants, Steelers, Colts, Jets, Cowboys, Raiders, 49ers, Vikings, and now, Jaguars. 5 of those 10 have been wearing single color numbers forever... the Pack (1925), the Steelers (1933), the Cowboys (1962), the Raiders (1962), and the Colts (1953). It's safe to say that none of these teams are a part of any new "single color number trend." Another 3 of those 10 have been wearing their current uniforms with single numbers for less time, but are wearing uniforms that recreate older uniforms that had single color numbers... the 49ers (1957 originally), the Giants (1937 originally), and the Jets (1962 originally). Since these teams are each following an older tradition, I would say they, also, are not part of any "single color number trend." That just leaves 2... the Vikings (2013) and the Jaguars (2018) as a part of this "trend." 2 teams is not much of a trend IMO... I think were safe.

    Yes. They literally would have been killed if they'd outlined the numbers.
  16. Classic Coral: Dolphins Tweak Colours for New Uniform

    It's really weird... on the other Dolphin thread, we were all talking about what a mess that font is... it's still not a good font by any stretch, but with that single, stronger orange outline it just looks so much cleaner. Great work.
  17. Classic Coral: Dolphins Tweak Colours for New Uniform

    Right... we keep hearing that in the Jags and Titans threads... this change will get nearly universal approval, I bet.
  18. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    This repeating complaint about "too old school" and "too traditional" is pretty much nonsense. Any team looking to replicate a Golden Age of Football aesthetic wouldn't go this plain. If there was an NFL version of Hockey's "original 6 dress up" it would have a lot more details; In fact, a few years back I did a concept series based on just that idea... http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/98696-original-six-dress-up-for-the-nfl-final-update-detroit-lions/ My "Original Six Dress-Up" version of the Jaguars looked like this;
  19. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I agree with pretty much all this, and came on to post basically the same thing. It's all about the combos. A simple, possible single color pants stripe would be an upgrade, but overall, better than any Nike update except Minnesota and Detroit. I would rank the combinations and pretty much the same order Goth did, with the possible exception of liking the black over teal a little better. Also, as long as black socks are the only option, they can pretty much burn the black pants, as far as I'm concerned.
  20. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    There are things I'm inclined to like about this. That number font is unique and still feels classic, and the single layer numbers actually appeal to me quite a bit. BUT... Once again, the amateur, small time high school look of the monochrome combos is what gets displayed, leading anyone to believe that those will be featured as the primary looks. Which will suck. Because monochrome in the NFL sucks. "Here we go", indeed.

    True enough.
