Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

Im sure the forum will be skeptical of a first-time poster, but from a guy who provided me some correct information a couple months ago about the Jags unis, I was told a few things over the weekend:

 

- The primary home jerseys are still black, not teal as has been speculated.

 

- The numbering and wordmark is white on black jerseys, black on white away, and black on teal alternates. (Yes, there is a teal alternate)

 

- The jersey numbering is "modern block" font. 

 

- The ONLY gold at all, is the Jaguar head logo patch replacing the prior shield.

 

- Teal is used on the black jersey around the collar and sleeves, in a very "traditional style", and some piping on the pants. 

 

- Helmet is flatish black, but not full matte if that makes sense, with a slightly larger Jaguar head logo that we are used to.

 

Team is doing a "sneak peak" tonight for contest winners, but dont expect too much leaked as they have all signed NDAs prior to accepting invite.

 

Have you seen them yourself, or just go the description?

I guess I need to apologize in case I came across as hostile.  I made the Dan comment and it was a knee-jerk reaction to what I read as restating the "leaks."

 

Sorry, Col Jag.

 

I think that Coughlin's quote about, when some of the early Jags wind up in the Hall of Fame (Boselli soon, Taylor hopefully eventually) that they would be recognized now as then in a Jags jersey leads us to automatically think that teal is the main color in this set.  We will see.  Tradition for me is teal away numbers, but I also like the teal-flaked helmets in an otherwise funky set.  Too, the current teal alternate is pretty sharp looking.  So it's all, I guess, up for interpretation until we hit Thursday morning.  

 

No apology is necessary. I posted with the understanding that anything submitted would likely have much doubt casted upon it. I would too, and I have previously with other posts, as I have been a long-time reader of this forum.

 

I am a Jags fan as well. To me, the best uniforms they ever had were the late 90s-early 00s, and it would be my preference as well but anyone expecting a return to those will be disappointed.

Yeah I’m a little confused about these rumors we’ve seen. To me, returning to tradition looks something like this:

 

2012537-bobby-shaw-and-kevin-lockett-loo

 

 

I could see, and would hope, a return to an updated version of this uniform. I can imagine them going with this except with the current number font, similar stripes on the sleeves and maybe a black collar.

Full disclosure, I have not personally viewed them, but have had them described to me. 

 

I can tell you I discussed these details with some other folks I know who have different affiliations to the team, and to a person, this information was corroborated.

 

The only information I could not verify full were the pants & there was some disagreement on the font color for the teal jersey.

So basically a more traditional version of this:

Accurate, but much "cleaner" looking.

Ha, that is not at all where my interpretation comes from. It is not an educated connection. It's looking at the phrase "return to tradition" in and of itself. The supposed leak, if it is indeed close to the new design, does not fit under that definition in my book because 1) it isn't a traditional NFL uniform look (simple/plain does not equal traditional) and 2) it isn't a traditional look for the Jaguars. Keeping a black jersey isn't a "return to tradition", it's "keeping the look we currently have". As is black numbers on a teal jersey. 

 

 

I'm not driving him away. If someone is going to make claims, I'm going to ask about those claims and express doubts if I don't find them believable. I haven't made a single personal attack or anything. I've been pretty civil and kept it related purely to the Jaguars new uniforms. I understand this take may not have been directed at me, but please don't quote me when providing a lecture for the whole forum. But all in all, aside from 1 DanParker comment, things have been pretty civil. It's not like we've been arguing over the shape of a number and where it is used in a uniform. So we have that going for us here.

 

The point still stands; the phrase “Return to Tradition” is vague and open to multiple interpretations, and your specific interpretation (which is a perfectly valid one, by the way, just not the *only* valid one) of what it means is going back to something like what they used to wear (the Jaguars’ tradition, in other words).

 

To me, removing the wild yoke/collar/sleeve design in favor of a stripe (depending on where you draw like line on what’s a stripe or not), following suit on the pant, and paring the typography down from double outlines to none is also a way to “return to tradition.”

 

I didn’t mean to single you out about ColJag. You’re right there’s only been one questionable comment. It’s more a general attitude and tone toward anyone who supplies information. Like, everything at this point is going to be somewhat speculative and unsubstantiated “game of telephone” type of info, to the point where even trustworthy posters have put forth info and leaks that have proven to be outdated and we still treat them with respect.

I'm not trying to poo on Col Jag, btw, just rereading the report from the Owners' Meetings:

http://www.espn.com/blog/jacksonville-jaguars/post/_/id/25228/jaguars-new-uniforms-likely-to-include-more-teal

"Teal obviously resonates with people because of the success we had historically [and those uniforms] had teal," Khan said Tuesday at the NFL’s annual meeting. "Last year we were allowed a couple [alternate uniforms], I think two or three games we could have teal, and [Coughlin] chose for the big games.

"And it worked."

 

"It was just a feeling of who we are, what we represent," Coughlin said. "That's a very good look. It's a solid look. As I said at one point in time, we have some guys that will be in the Hall of Fame and the connection will be very similar as we go forward. We just wanted a little bolder statement and I think we got it."

 

So... yeah.  It doesn't say "teal background," it doesn't say "limited teal," it says "more teal" than we had in the current set, which was bascially the sleeve caps.  It says "the connection is similar," not "it's the same thing we used to have."  We may all be wrong!  We'll have to see what happens. :)

Except it is the headline that says more teal, not anything that either Coughlin or Khan said (just picking nits and biding my time).

After watching this video, Coughlin makes it sound like “traditional” means traditional looking NFL uniforms, not the traditional Jaguars uniforms.

The current iterations had a very prevalent gold and black tone, as we are all aware.

 

As one of my sources put it, the "return to more teal" is basically the spin for, "We have done away with gold, and realize black & teal are what our fans identify the Jags with.".

 

They also only used the teal alternate once in '13, before last season using it vs. Los Angeles and Seattle. So a, "return to tradition/teal", is also implying they intend to use the teal alt more than 3 times in a 5 season period.

I’m just saying that between:

 

• Khan saying that teal “resonates,”

• Coughlin’s comments on Hall of Fame continuity,

• All of this talk of “returning to tradition,”

• And even their April Fools pro bowl leak using a teal jersey,

 

They have been doing some mighty teal-baiting and basically have everyone set up to be majorly teal-balled in the event that the teal jersey is anything but the primary home look.

That would be quite disappointing.. All this talk of teal just to go with a black primary. Pointless.

Yeah, it honestly makes ZERO sense to run this type of marketing just to end up with a black primary uniform. Really strange. But then again this is the team that wore a half matte black, half gloss gold helmet for the last 5 years.

Keep in mind, a lot of the team's bannering in recent weeks, including during the free agent signings on the team site, have been predominantly black and white with some teal shadowing.

Take a look at their IG feed. Everything is draped in teal. Preseason schedule, Poz retirement board, even the FA signing you mention had the board 80% teal.

I think they can solve a lot of the lack of teal problems by wearing teal pants. 

Black jersey/teal pants

white jersey/teal pants
