Not a fan of the Jets one - should have gone with a green helmet instead of some arbitrary shade of gray that isn't part of their identity and another 3 shades of green

However, I wish the Buccs would switch to this one today

The teams choose each season to wear either black or white as a group.  Players can either wear that team choice, or opt for team colors.

The Patriots just bought their own planes for travel, with appropriate livery:

Seems strange to have Elvis facing backwards on the port engine, but that's probably because they don't have a wordmark version where he faces left.   So you'd have incongruity:

Seems like it would make better sense for them to put the letter-only wordmark on the fuselage, and then forward-facing logos on the engines.

Do they think they're a soccer team with the stars over the wordmark?

Do they have a version without the logo?    There doesn't appear to be one in the style guide, and the jersey version includes Elvis.

Now, no reason they can't create a version without Elvis, and they certainly should, but it doesn't look like they've got one now.

I think you're right they don't have one...though it seems like I've see it somewhere (or maybe I just don't see the Elvis those times)

And yet at the same time, I find it hard to believe they couldn't merely just flip the logo on the wordmark and have a left-facing version. Really, how hard could that be?

The lombardi trophies on the fin thingy is great.  The back part of the body should be silver/gray though.  The old wordmark would have worked better.  This one has to have the logo under it to fill in the arch.  Should have just gone with stars on the engines..

Yeah Tyrod has worn white cleats on multiple occasions. However, I'm unaware of any instance where he was fined for it. It seems like the rules allow for players to wear white or black.

If they were a black shoe team and he wore white, you can bet he got fined. 

 

Won't matter now because the Bills will be wearing white as a team this year.  With random blues and reds thrown in to make it as non-uniform as possible.

Looks like the Lions, Browns and Bills are switching to white shoes this year.

If you mean small steps to get rid of these horrible uniforms, then totally agree.

I did a quick mock up and I'm surprised how much I like it.

Unfortunately I doubt they are adding stripes and it was probably just the designer trying to keep the graphics consistent.
