You can sort of see it in this photo, but the Browns going with cursive "Browns" in each end zone. Not a wordmark I've ever seen before.

If they are going retro, just go all the way and put the elf at midfield.

Ugh... It used to bring me joy that they didn't have those stupid patches.

You're going to have to Zoom in for this one, but the Browns have a new script in the endzone. It's a cursive font that looks like the old one from Municipal stadium.

The cursive wordmark in the end zone is nice, but I always thought it was an odd choice since it wasn't used anywhere else . . . to my recollection.

Is it just me or do the black pants stripes on the Saints gold pants taper out at the bottom?

 

I haven't noticed that.

Awesome. Most end zones are boring nowadays and I'd love to see more throwback designs.

Nothing says "retro" quite like brown facemasks, contrast stitching, angular numbers with reverse drop shadows, and wordmarks on the pants.

You forgot sleeve stripes that migrate half way to the neckline.

Back to the topic of the one-helmet rule.

 

If Tom Brady wants to wear an outdated helmet design, it's his choice. The league can't reasonably ban certain helmet designs for being "unsafe", because it would imply that the remaining designs are "safe", which they almost certainly aren't.

 

What I don't get is why this affects helmet switching at all.

Because if Brady wants to wear an older helmet, and everyone else switches to a different helmet for a game, how will they match?   They going to get out a can of spray paint?

 

Agreed about the safety thing; no helmets are actually safe, so it's not a good idea for the league to get too particular about what they mandate.

Probably just a Quetzalcoatlus swooping in to pick up an Anky to do some mining.

I had to look that up. Man, that's a hideous-looking creature!

That's one step in the right direction. Now they've just got to go full throwback on everything else.

:censored:ing garbage.  What a stupid patch.  Unnecessary clutter and a silly design.

A couple notes about the new Browns field design:

 

1. A member of their creative team said on Twitter that they are using the script as a throwback to the 80s (i.e. when the Browns were a perennial playoff team). The problem there is that they never used a script in the 80s. That end zone design didn't come around until the Belichick era in the 90s.

 

2. When was the last time an NFL team had a fully painted field with no logo on the 50? I don't mind it, but it's pretty rare.

Good call on 1 and 2: 1996 Mile High Stadium or 1996 Tampa Stadium (maybe?)

The browns usually don't have theirs till later in the season. Last year they didn't have endzone painted for a while.

Umm, that's not even remotely close to true. The Browns haven't had a regular season home game without the end zones painted since they last shared the old Municipal Stadium with the Indians in 1993.

 

Now, they've changed made in-season tweaks to the end zones designs here and there (ex: last year was brown end zone/orange letters for the first few games, then orange with white for the last few), but there has always been some sort of design as long as there was no need for a baseball infield.
