  1. I'm sick of all this anti-subtraction prejudice!
  2. The Jets' uniform design is good, as long as the greens are standardized. The only thing that would make it better is to have full shoulder loops, or close to it. The Eagles' uniform, on the other hand, is an abomination. The "midnight green" is bad enough on its own, but putting such a dark color side-by-side with black looks awful. And the black jerseys are even worse. They should either return to kelly green, in which case a little black would be fine as trim, or if they insist on sticking with midnight green, they should eliminate the black and use gray as an accent (which they already do in the eagle's beak and helmet wings). And as long as they're fixing things, they may as well use a less embarrassing number font and drop the drop shadow.
  3. Which jersey is the "right" one for Brook Lopez then? I know he's been with the Nyets his whole career, but they haven't exactly had a consistent identity.
  4. I agree. The Foles-era jersey was a great modernization of the classic '90s look, especially once they ditched the piping.
  5. As perfect as the 2007 Patriots.
  6. Regarding the Lions wordmark on the sleeves: It's a given that any newly-designed jersey has to have the team name on it somewhere for marketing purposes. Most teams have chosen to go with a small chest wordmark, like the Lions' current uniforms, the Broncos, the Patriots, the Texans, the 49ers, and many others. But the chest of a uniform gets crowded, with the NFL collar logo, the numbers, and various patches. So although my first reaction is "WTF," I don't mind the sleeve logo as much as I thought I would. Other teams that have done that (Bucs, Seahawks) have been able to avoid cluttering the front of the uniform. Otherwise, I like it, although I'm worried that they'll produce a uniform that's too bright/saturated, like the current Dolphins' uniform. We already know they're using a brighter blue, and there's a chance that bright blue combined with silver will produce a uniform that's too low-contrast. But I guess we'll see.
  7. I hope they don't change to a white helmet. Plain white helmets are owned by Penn State, and nobody wants to voluntarily associate themselves with Penn State, least of all a team in Ohio. The current set is fugly, but could be cleaned up with a few tweaks. Make the shoulder striping a normal length. Remove the wordmark from the pants and extend the pants striping fully. Remove the contrast stitching. All of a sudden, you'd have a solid uniform. Lots of people seem to be saying the drop shadow should be either removed or converted to an outline. I disagree. Outlines don't look good with this color combination (see the 1984 uniform), and the drop shadow is unique. It's also not a big enough drop shadow to be obnoxious, like the ones that were in vogue in the late 90s and early 00s. Plus, the Browns have a history with drop shadow.
  8. Deservedly so. I started watching the NFL around 1990, and the Oilers were one of my favorite teams almost solely because they had sweet uniforms and ran the run 'n' shoot.
  9. Dollars to donuts that the Rams and Chargers are coordinating (perhaps at the NFL's behest) to avoid having anywhere close to the same "look" now that they're both in LA. This would explain the Rams dropping yellow/gold. And I'm guessing the Chargers will change their blue from navy to either powder blue or their brighter "color rush" blue. The last thing the NFL wants is for a football fan in LA (assuming they exist) to be able to buy one set of gear to support the colors of both teams.
  10. They went with blue road pants for a year in 1998, and I never really liked them. The silver/white/silver look was much cleaner and more symmetrical. But since this is Nike, I'm sure we'll have every possible combination of blue and silver in the uniform components.
  11. Since they have silver helmets (and presumably will be sticking with them - I can't imagine them in anything else), presumably the logo on the helmet will look outline-free. This would be a similar change to what the Panthers did a few years ago, which was a huge improvement.
  12. Mouse? Well put. "Mouse" is the wrong word, because the brain injury concerns are very serious. But to fix the analogy, prohibiting alternate helmets as a safety measure is like noticing a poisonous snake in your house, and reacting by going outside and shooting your neighbor's dog. There's no evidence whatsoever that one has anything to do with the other.

  14. It's also on the 50 yard line of their field.
