Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

Then again, so are white numbers on a uniform with no white.

 

It still wouldn’t be optimum, but heavy gold number trim, gold instead of teal on the sleeve and pant stripes, and teal socks with a gold stripe would do wonders for this.

This update will surely fix the #1 problem with the Jaguars current set (the helmet), but it sounds like they’ve severely over corrected everything else. The current set has flaws- absolutely no doubt about it- but what they got right with the current set is the color balance...even though some colors are in the wrong spots, they still used the right amounts and it feels like the Jaguars.

 

If they took the current set and made some adjustments, it could be a fantastic foundation to build off of. The number font is good. The teal away numbers with the gold and black outline are great. Make the numbers white on the teal jerseys (black on the teal is ugly and non-traditional). Get rid of the shiny shoulder stuff and the contrasting sleeve caps. Use a similar color balance as the current pants, but arrange it in a more traditional stripe pattern.

 

This proposed uniform just sounds bland and generic. It will lose all of the warmth and familiarity without the gold.

 

Just pretend the helmet below is solid black. This is really only a couple tweaks away from being quite solid:

This isn't hard, Jacksonville.

 

Teal should be the primary color. For the love of God, enough with the monochrome black obsession. It wasn't a good look when you trotted it out in 2003, it didn't look good when you updated it in 2011, it didn't look good when you made it the primary uniform in 2013 and it certainly won't look good now. If they're going to stick with black, then I'd rather see them do what the Rams did and keep their current uniforms with just the updated helmet. At least their current black jersey has white numbers. Making the numbers teal over black and eliminating gold altogether just seems so stupid. 

 

How is it possible for a team to screw this up so many times? Even the Bills in 2011 were like "Alright, everybody hates our navy blue look but they love our royal blue '65 throwbacks. Let's make our helmets white again and bring back royal blue as our primary color and call it a night." The Jags are about to fail at their third attempt since 2009 to fix a problem that they themselves created and still can't figure out how to solve. Maybe they'll finally get it right in 2023...

Say this a little louder for the folks still trying to say “But it’s an upgrade!!”

I disagree almost wholeheartedly.. White numbers on a colored jersey are always ok.. ALWAYS..

Plus, there IS white on the uniform, thanks to that stupid chest logo (and helmet logos as well)

Yeah, that mockup doesn't convince me that this will be an upgrade at all. It's safe which is fine, but it's safe to the point of being dull especially for a team like the Jaguars.  I feel like people are so blinded by their hatred of the last set's two-tone helmets that they overlook the rest of the uniform design which is actually really solid.

 

On that note, it's frustrating to me that the Jaguars seem to be so consistently insecure in their brand to the point that any identity that they may have had is lost. If you look at their history, you can practically imagine the focus group comments and any fad of the moment directing each change to the point where they overdo it each time. From the start, teal was meant to be the primary color with gold and black accents. It's baffling to me why they can't just stick to that. Since that first set, they've tried both bringing black to the forefront and removing gold altogether, and both times it resulted in a dull look that couldn't measure up to that inaugural look. They finally got a good color balance with their 2013 Nike set, and now they're going to throw it out again to return to a look that is really reminiscent of the 2009 set because the criticisms of those gimmicky helmets scared them. 

 

Of course I'll still hold out on a final opinion until the official unveiling, but I am really disappointed if these are the changes that they decided to make. It's the same thing all over again. I can practically picture yet another Jaguars thread just like this in 5 years. Oh well, maybe they'll get it right then.

Soooo...they're turning into the Carolina Panthers South? And a solid black home uniform is so stupid. They'll literally wear it 2x a year. For some Sunday/Monday night game and for a home game sometime in December when it's not 90* out.

Eh, I don’t really see what exactly is “Panthers” about it, other than the claw-like stripes that people keep trying to give to the Panthers in concepts here.

 

Heck, I’d love for them to be the Panthers of the South, actually. They’re the 90’s cat team that’s actually held onto their classic 90’s uniform for all of these years with just a couple of tweaks and very few complaints to be had (barring a few gripes over templates).

Nothing is always okay. There’s ALWAYS an exception. Making this uniform predominantly black and white rather than black and teal would make it even more drab than it already is.

This is the biggest issue with using black as the primary color, it doesnt work in FL. Teal over white can be worn all year, but it seems like Shad really wants to use black.

 

I know it was probably unintentional but the team really pushed the "FOREVER TEAL" message most of the year. I thought that message along with how well the alternates were received this year (they wore them twice) pretty much confirmed teal was going to be back. 

 

That being said the end result when confirmed doesn't surprise me at all. They are still going to look great with a super bowl logo on them..

Per a store owner in Jacksonville, the fans ate up everything that was teal - shirts, hats, jerseys, whatever. Teal was a big hit and was expected to be expanded in the future, in the retail department at least. Just take a look at the Fanatics stores for the Jags. It's all black, with more gold being available than teal. Especially the official Nike stuff.

White numbers on colored jerseys are ALWAYS ok.. Teal numbers on a black jersey (in American football) are NEVER ok.. This is an epic fail

I’m thinking the all black with teal numbers is a color rush uniform. Like the next Niners.

Jags wear white at home a lot. If this report is true they will be in just black/white at home most of the time with no sign of teal. Epic fail

Considering how much JAX fans have been clamoring for teal, I don't see how this will satisfy them. The all-black will make some 13-year-old boys happy, but it's not a good look and so far from the timeless look that is so easily within reach for the Jags. Frustrating. 

 

This looks like yet another miss that will be erased in 5 years.

Nope. It’s the primary home uniform.

With the numbers/lettering/stripes being teal, this will be the most teal they have had on their primary jerseys since they used to wear teal at home back in 2011. Before I seen the set, the word on the street was still black primary with more teal, I figured the numbers would end up being teal with a white outline based on the owners black,teal, and white comments. Really wanted to see a gold outline, but I’m ok with the set. I actually like the black better than the teal set this time around.

I normally doubt these kinds of rumors but that Jags set looks exactly like what NIKE designs for college teams. So I think it’s legit.

And the exception to that one is if there is sufficiently weighted bright trim on them.

 

As it stands, though, this is probably the worst set of jerseys this team has ever worn.

Heavy bright trim doesn't fix the issue at all.. I speak from experience as a former radio broadcaster and current coach.. It is infinitely more difficult to quickly identify players when the numbers are colored (even with a bold/bright outline) than when the numbers are white

I’m not saying it’s optimum, just that it’s passable if designed properly and if the color scheme works.
