NFL 2017 changes?

1,093 posts in this topic

Massive upgrade for the Saints. I also am of the thought that their Color Rush set with the traditional stripes would be preferable (colors and design are much better), but this at least makes their current set very good again. Only other tweak I'd make would be to have the stripe on the gold pants match the helmet (black/white/black) rather than a solid black stripe.

 

Side note- unless my eyes are deceiving me, I think the NFL shield is the same chrome application as their Color Rush line. Interesting. I assumed it would revert back to the normal shield for the main uniforms.

yep looks like the VU template will be an option for all teams now. im sure there will be some that refuse to upgrade still. massive improvement though, can't wait to see most of the league convert.

Great for the Saints, looks like the Rams went to the new template, sans neck roll collar, as well. Bengals, you're up.

We should be seeing draft hats released pretty soon, right?  Maybe one or two weeks?

It's plastic, that's why it has that shine to it.

I'd bet money that the Bengals insist on being the Avalanche of the NFL and hold onto their terrible template just because.

Right, I was just noting that their normal set now has the shiny shield (like Color Rush) rather than the shield with the white background.

This is must be the new league direction because the Rams uniform mockup showed a shiny shield.

It looks like he's wearing the gold socks as well so I'd guess he was in the full Color Rush set and just changed to the black jersey for the purposes of the photo shoot. I doubt we'll actually see that look in action.

That will rival the Ravens gold pants on the ugly scale.

They should be black in the front and gold in the back go mimic the helmet.

 

It would also have the side effect of either blinding their opponents or making them vomit.

They look like the Steelers in that picture. Which is probably what they were going for, considering all the Steelers fans that live in the area.

It's a shame that they've stopped embracing teal. They used to look so good.
