Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

Recommended Posts

^ Regarding to stadium signage. It is very possible they keep their current wordmark but still go with a block font (which is apparently what might be the case) and still be able to prevent any major stadium changes.

I just want nice looking uniforms to start, don't really care what order yet.  We can always revolt after the fact if the teal is still the alternate....Let's say the Teal is the alternate.  Is there rules for switching an alternate to the primary in future seasons?

Agreed. I was just surprised at just how much around town features the font. If the Titans, per say, did the same thing and plan to match all to the new font, it's a logistical nightmare I imagine.

Nope, just have to file and be approved by the league by a certain date (mid-summer, I think)

Will NIKE be smart enough not go too literal in some spots? I think we're safe from jaguar print, but what about claw marks?

can they resist the urge to place these somewhere?

 

I don't get the claw marks on uniforms.

 

If you're supposed to be ferocious Jaguars or Panthers or whatever shouldn't the claw marks be on the other team. 

 

You want to be dishing out the claw marks not receiving them.

yeah I've made the same point.  Why would you want to look like your mascot got loose and shredded your players (or at least their clothes)?  

 

LIke with hockey logos that show the mascot chomping a stick - why would you let your mascot break literally the only thing you can use to score goals?

 

Because idiots, that's why.

Man, miss a few hours at work and the thread gets 4 pages longer.

 

I think there's been a lot of good (and civil) discussion over the last few pages. A lot of good points have been brought up. 

 

The whole black vs teal primary thing is, I think, actually an easy change to make. They aren't changing any designs, just designations. We've seen that time and time again in the NFL (Denver, Tennessee, Carolina). The only thing that could stump this is the NFL's deadline to make such designation, but I don't think we're close to that.

 

I had yet another person privately message me and say that the uniforms were very simple, black and teal only, with no gold. He called them "very Giants-like," but also said he only saw digital renderings. So I think it's quite possible it was just the leaks (at work at the time, didn't want to push). 

 

I drive by EverBank Field (the stadium hasn't changed any signage yet) every day to work, and have kept my eye out on any changes. Haven't seen any yet. But I did realize recently just how much signage consists of the current font. It's literally everywhere, in, on, and around the stadium. If the Jaguars were to change the font, it would mean a lot more changes were in store than just the jerseys and some aesthetics of the stadium. 

 

In regards to marketing, and social media specifically, I don't think too much can be drawn overall. We saw Tennessee use a completely different font and Greek pattern for a while, to no avail on the uniforms. From what I know at Auburn, the marketing designs will change every year or so. Whether it follows anything uniform-related in design is up to a case-by-case basis. So, while the teal and white look is interesting, there's a fair chance it has no bearing on the uniforms. The "Return to Tradition" motto is much more deliberate. But, as discussed previously, it is entirely up to perception. Is tradition the winning ways when Coughlin was here originally? Or the design? The style of player? I don't know. 

 

Regardless, Thursday morning can't come soon enough. I'm not entirely sure when they'll actually reveal the uniforms. Don't think they've said. The State of the Franchise address usually lasts about an hour, with some post show interviews, so it might be 1:00 EST or so before we actually see them.

 

I think you hit it on the head with regards to the designations.

 

If you take into account how the uniforms even play out over a season, with a team having 8 home game in regular season, and in Jax's case the early season games they use white tops due to heat, the use of the black tops could end up being at an even ratio at home to the teal tops, (say 3:3 w/ 2 home games in white early on).

 

So while the technical "Home tops" are black, they'd be using the teal nearly an equal amount of time, at least at The Bank, which is where their focus is with this marketing talk anyway.

That's a very good point, I didn't even think of that.

I have to say, I haven't the slightest clue what the uniform will look like, no inside information, and haven't been scouring the interwebs for all the info.  But ColeJag seems pretty reasonable to me, the stuff that he or she is saying makes sense. At least it seems more believable than just basing a guess on Tom Coughlin's reputation as a no nonsense guy.

It's evolutionary, not revolutionary.

It honors the past, while ushering in the future.

It upholds our traditions, while starting new ones.

It pays homage to the greatest fans in the NFL and the greatest city in the world.

It's modern yet timeless.  Classic yet contemporary.

Getting rid of, or minimizing gold is a mistake, in my opinion. Gold accents looked great. The all gold color rush uniform wasn’t good together, but theoretically that jersey with black pants or the black jersey with the gold pants and an all black helmet would probably actually look pretty good. I’m not saying that gold pants should be a regular thing, however. Like I said earlier, I think the previous set, was a couple changes from being really good.

The only sucky thing with this is that teams can only wear alternates 2x a year, and with Thursday Color Rush being dead there's no chance of it being slipped in for a 3rd time.
