So is he a troll or is he legit?

He is a legitimate source most times but also says stuff to troll folks but mostly opponents but normally it's simple enough to read between the lines with him when he does.

Like, we might respect the franchise again?

 

I never really respected them in the first place... I always felt that their early success was handed to them via cartoonish expansion advantages, presumably to ensure success in a new market... after that first wave of talent faded, they became pretty irrelevant until recently.

I'd say most of their success was due to Tom Coughlin rather than cartoonish expansion advantages. Mark Brunell, Jimmy Smith, Keenan McCardell, and Fred Taylor became Jaguars due to good front office moves, not "Your new market needs to be good" expansion advantages.

Not to mention they kind of screwed themselves with the salary cap and then their GM sucked at drafting (punter in the 3rd round? really???).

You could argue that the luxury of having Rob Johnson to trade for the pick that became Fred Taylor was a residual effect of the 14 extra draft picks the league handed them over their first few seasons.

 

The advent of free agency was relatively new when both teams were founded, which gave both teams the unique advantage of building a team around developed veterans in a way no other team had before... if I'm not mistaken, both teams received some favorable salary cap help, too, which made signing free agents easier.

 

The Browns and Texans certainly didn't get that kind of help in their well-established markets. JAX & CAR made great decisions with those advantages, but it seemed like the Jags really collapsed when the impact of those advantages faded away.

It's been called flat/matte by many reporters, which is ultimately the same finish.

 

To be fair, it could be that those reporters wouldn’t know the difference between matte and satin. Many refer to the Vikings’ helmet as matte, but as we know it’s not a matte finish.

It sounds like the Jaguars are going to do everything right that the Titans did wrong.

Have we decided whether the leaks from a few pages/weeks ago are legit?

Any chance the Jags come out with a completely new uniform that has nothing to do with the classic look but also have a classic set? The all black helmet will allow them to have a classic alternate. 

 

I’d be all for it but I am not expecting it. It would give them two different teal jerseys and two sets of white pants. Not that there’s anything wrong with that — it just makes me think it’s unlikely.

 

However, it would make some sense considering the juxtaposition of returning to a traditional look, while also potentially removing gold from the uniforms, (as we’ve seen in the supposed leaks). One way to satisfy both would be removing gold from the primary set and then having a throwback alternate.

It looks like they are using the same template that Nike used for the Titans. They've just flipped the front-facing template horizontally. I don't know that anyone else would have access to this template.

You can see that the only teal used on this away jersey and pants would be on the Nike swooshes, which is something Nike did with the Titans and their red swoosh. 

 

It says something like "Ocean Edge Font" down towards the bottom left, so I'm assuming there are variations with different number fonts.

 

I think these are legitimate -- we just don't know how close they are to the selected/finalized design.

I'm hoping against hope these are not the finished product.

You know what's odd? The sleeve stripes in these two concepts are completely different.

 

Not that it proves much of anything, but does seem like something doesn't add up.

Looks like the same stripes to me. You just can't see the cuff in the back view.

The backview stripes are flat-down (as you go to the front); the front view are up and arched, then down.  The top stripe is noticeably different - in the front view, the top stripe completely curls over the bottom stripe, whereas that doesn't happen in the backview. They shouldn't have such different angles in essentially the same pose. Look at the amount of space between the swoosh and the top stripe...

 

Again, these are computer images, but they oughta be consistent.

There's also teal on the socks.

 

I think that's present on both of them.  You can see it on the right leg of the front facing model.

 

The teal stripe appears to be angled, so it's harder to see from the front.

The only thing I would change/add to that is the bigger logo, different font, was going to say gold but I don’t think it’s bade the way it is especially with the stripes so small

They are part of a package along with two other design options that were pretty similar besides stripe placement. So these may have been what they went with. Not sure how far along in the process this stuff was though.

Remember back in December when I spoke with a local Jacksonville retailer? I went and spoke to a different location of the same company, and I've got a lot more details to share.

 

  • Teal and black will undoubtedly be emphasized over anything else. Gold is not gone entirely, but in little use
  • I showed a photo of the leaks and they immediately said that's not what they saw. They saw a design about a month ago, but has seen many different editions since. But they were adamant the leak was not correct.
  • I got the impression the logo is not changing, so no snow leopard uniforms.
  • The gold jerseys are just about gone. Don't think Jacksonville nor the retailers were fond of them. They sold terribly.
  • This is the craziest of them:
    • Not this upcoming season, but eventually apparently, the Jaguars will have throwback uniforms. They specifically mentioned the full body sleeve logo, so the original uniforms could very well be back for a game or two in the coming seasons. Never thought we'd see that.
  • They truly believe Coughlin will keep simple, a la the Giants. Nothing too crazy.

I ended up spending an hour talking with the person, with the uniform stuff the minority of what was discussed.
