Thoughts @jagsgeek and @TSHARE18 ? 

The design isn't bad, but it's desperately in need of some gold trim.

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

The issue is primarily due to nature of football.. Baseball doesn't have this issue because of the slow pace, lots of standing around, and immense spacing of players.. Basketball is also mostly immune to this issue due to the smaller numbers of players and comparatively large amount of spacing during most of the game..

With football, you have, generally speaking, 14-16 players in a pretty confined area (the "box"), where the majority of the action takes place.. There's so much traffic with players moving quickly, colliding, falling, etc, that accurately following and identifying anything more than the ball-carrier becomes difficult without the stark contrast of white numbers on colored jerseys and colored numbers on white jerseys.. In still photos and HD close-ups, sure we can usually make out the number of the primary focus player, but in real-time live-action games (And even when reviewing film from an HD camera), our minds don't register outlines as number forms.. It requires our brains to perform an extra level of translation to fully identify the number, which can often take a split second too long, or at the very least, make things much more inconvenient..

It bothers me that the jaguar head is facing away from the player. Seems way more natural for it to be facing in toward the chest rather than away.

Ditch the front patch, and outline the numbers and stripes with gold or even white and I think it would look pretty good.  I don't mind this version, but it's a bit underwhelming.

That was my biggest concern with the design too. But people complained about them flipping the Jaguar on the last jersey.

 

With that in mind, I don’t get why they didn’t just put it in the middle. The shield was over the heart because it was Shad Khan showing that he was committing to the city by honoring the military history of Jacksonville with a military style patch over the heart of the jerseys. It doesn’t need to be that way for the Jaguar.

The NFL shield goes in the middle

And they went with no wordmark on these it sounds like. With no logo on the sleeves id say this is the best choice. It looks good on the Steelers and Jets.

 

The jaguar will face the same direction (right) it does on all of their other gear. Why would they do it different for just the uniform?

They also do it differently on one side of the helmet. They should do it differently because it looks dumb if they don’t.

On first blush, I really like them. Personally I'm hoping they will do what the Seahawks do and mix and match the jerseys and pants for variety. Alot of folks on this board enjoy the navy over wolf grey.

 

Looking at this I see some opportunity, especially teal jersey over white pants.

Those super thin stripes evoke memories of the awful piping on the Blaine Gabbert-era uniforms.

Dat font doe. 

 

At a glance it looks like a Steelers jersey. How the :censored: does this team screw it up every godsdam time. 

 

Other than the helmets its a downgrade. I really don’t think the black set will make it the whole season without spotters and announcers complaining until it gets altered. 

 

All we keep hearing about is how they acknowledged the fans love of teal, and then they unveil this set? Doesn’t make any sense. 

 

Dumb, stupid team.

That white set is awful... no color anywhere except the logos. I can live with the rest, but it's still a downgrade from the neck down.

Never thought I’d like all teal, but it doesn’t look bad in those photos.  Black/teal/white is still the best option they have.  

 

And clearly that’s the helmet they should have had the last five years.

Not logos.. At least not if you want to look decent

Those are so close to being good uniforms, but the things that are wrong are very wrong and completely ruin it. I like the stripes. A nice modern take on a classic idea. I don't mind the number font, but block would look better with their wordmark, unless that's changing. And the helmet is obviously an upgrade.

 

Simple changes that would make this 100 times better:

- Make teal the primary

- Teal socks with the black and white pants

- Outline the numbers in gold

- Make the away numers teal

 

Why is that so damn hard for them to understand?
