Any combo involving the blue jerseys is gonna look bad. They should have left the helmets alone until the big rebrand in 2019. In the meantime, white jerseys over blue pants might look better than expected.

This will be stupidly embarrassing if the Rams win a Super Bowl in these uniforms. Forever engraved in their history.

That's something that is definitely not going to happen.

I love variety - I wish I could see the Seahawks much more in blue over grey, and even the never worn blue over white, for example.  But I hope to never see the STL style Rams blue and gold jersey again, now worn with the blue and white helmet and pants.  I hope they use one of their two throwback chits for the Dallas game. 

They'd better not.  Those jerseys need to be at the Coliseum.  I'll live with the navy being worn once.  Hell, maybe they'll switch the horn decals BACK to the gold if/when they wear those jerseys.

There's a better chance that you'll be abducted by space aliens.

They have talent on D (Aaron Donald especially) and an excellent young running back in Gurley, but unless the O-line and receiving corps suddenly turn into elite or near-elite units this will be a mediocre-to-bad team. I don't see 4-12 again, but 6-10 or so looks likely.

But that isn't their color rush.

 

This is:

So they still won't wear a jersey this season that matches their navy and white look.

 

 

P.S. Sorry for the tiny image.

 

 

Oh, I thought they had changed to a white color rush jersey. So the white jersey without gold is just a fashion jersey?

That's different in a substantial way (design wise). The Giants use red and blue on their helmet and pants so it ties together the look. The Rams are using gold on their jersey only so it sticks out. Even if the Rams were to add gold to their socks, it would go a long way in making the overall look more cohesive.

 

Again, I get that 90% of the public won't notice, but that doesn't mean we should just accept it as "good enough". To me it's something that would be the difference between a B and a C for a project in one of my classes. That little attention to detail that is the difference between good and average.

Could this be saved by adding a logo with gold to the pants and a little gold to the helmet?

Did they actually change their primary logo, or do they just not use their official primary logo anymore? My guess (unless I'm proven wrong, because it's possible I missed an official change) is that the blue and gold is still their official primary, they just don't use it anymore unless they have to, such as with official draft caps.

They did appear to change their primary logo (rather lazily, I might add. You can see the obvious "kink" where the horn's shadow used to be):

As noted before, the NFL seems to have some very odd rules about identity updates. The jerseys can't be changed for five years, but just about everything else can be (logos, wordmarks, helmets, etc.)

If the Rams changed their primary log and colors why were the draft hats navy and gold?

 

The draft hats were likely made well before the 2017 season, or it could be a merchandising/jersey issue and weren't allowed to. I'm not sure.

So the Rams are having a fan vote on there website on which game to use the throwback uniforms and if you notice i used the singular form of game, so the rams may save us from a hideous mach up vs Dallas if that is the decision my gut is telling me they are going. I also like that the Rams are getting fans involved with the uniform choices even if they are minor, it show they care about what the fans think with the uniforms at least to some extent, which in my experience is rare to see in a major sport.

They're having two separate votes to determine the two games that they'll be worn.

Yeah i didn't see that thanks for pointing it out, and at least my point about the rams giving fans some choice is still valid. I'm hoping all this means they are listening to the fansand they are going blue and yellow when they do rebrand in 2019.

Except rarely, if ever, do those "fan votes" ever mean anything. The team has likely already decided and this "vote" is just for good PR. More often than not, teams usually make excuses about why they can't do what the fans voted on. I'm not saying that's the case here, but I don't usually trust any sort of fan votes when it comes to team decisions.

I vote for the road game vs Dallas.  Whoops, that is not an option.  I guess we get mismatched blue and gold at least once. Hope they can tape the helmets.   Maybe Cowboys will show mercy and wear blue.

The Rams' throwback is so much nicer with the full yellow collar on the Vapor Untouchable template. It now looks like it's supposed to again.

Except they still have navy shorts with the gold trim on them:

And a lot of the players use the royal blue and white practice gear:

I have to say that while I would love to see the Rams return to some variation of royal blue and gold, I do like their navy blue and white. Though we are caught in a state of flux with this weird STL/LA color scheme. In 2019, I have a feeling that we'll see aspects of all of their uniforms in one. In my ideal world, I'd love for them to take elements of their color rush uniforms implemented into their new design. 

 

Something like this...
