Why not go all the way with it and have Left Tennessee and Right Tennessee as well?

Well, because then we'd end up with a "________ Missouri State" situation on our hands... ^_^

 

Back to the garments...I finally got an up-close look at the new stuff over to the team shop at the stadium the other day. Just for comparo's sake (& because they still had some old stock in there), I hung a (now old) jersey next to the newer ones and....

You can see how much...brighter...the old jersey is compared to the newer ones. (And the NOBs on the new ones are actually outlined...guess just another way to get some columbia blue in there.) That two-tone gray yoke really drabs down the look, to me.

 

Also, I also got a good look at the new helmets...setting aside the fact that the helmets seem to be the only place where the primary logo has a silver/gray outline, I find it puzzling the rest of the uniform uses two-tone gray on the yokes and pants...stripes...yet on the helmet the two-tone stripe is white and gray?? Its little things like that--and the fact that the number font matches nothing else in the brand identity--that just bug me.

 

Speaking of that number font...I've seen many remark of how the now-former number font was "bad" or how they didn't like it; yet in all that time I've yet to come across a single half-intelligible reason as to why they're supposedly "bad". I happened to like them personally, as they somewhat matched with the TITANS wordmark pretty well. A simple cleanup is all I believe they really needed and they'd have been good another 20 years. 

 

 I don't know that I've ever shown this, but I concocted this about a year ago...it shows my stab at tastefully updating the branding package and numbers some (along with infusing a bit more red since at the time that was a prevalent rumor).

I suppose Southwest Tennessee Community College might not be thrilled with being called Bottom Left Tennessee Community College.

Has nike honestly made a single decent new NFL uniform? The Seahawks one is the only one i can think of that's remotely decent, and even that is a bit sketchy?

in my personal opinion, minnesota and detroit are fantastic, seattle is a solid modern set, though they’d benefit from using grey pants more, miami was decent before the orange additions, but is now excellent, and while a little plain, jacksonville’s new look is quite solid. just my personal opinion though :P

Why do you think the Vikings uniforms are not “remotely decent?”

The Vikings uniform is fantastic. But they have the benefit of a unique color palette and a proud period of success to draw from.

Well, I guess if someone considers the Seahawks' over designed uniform to be "remotely decent", it shouldn't be surprising they don't like the Lions' and the Vikings' redesigns.

The red accents? You mean the Nike swoosh being the only red thing on the entire uniforms neck down? There aren't any red accents, just Nike trying to make their branding more noticable

Oof, that new jersey does not look good in comparison to the old one. Considerably darker, and the new number font looks hideous in comparison to the old one.

And the award for investigative photojournalism in the world of sports uniforms goes to...Buc!

 

I haven't been too hard on this change.  I kinda considered the jersey an upgrade.  Both number fonts are tolerable if not great and I liked the idea of the sword yoke.  

 

But they say that a picture is worth a thousand words and this is a terrific example of that.  Side-by-side with the old uniform, the new one just looks drab.  The extra light blue, as opposed to gray is a huge difference maker.  The old uniform shows their two colors nicely.  The new one adds a third color and drabness. 

 

In hindsight, they should have ditched the under-arm blue and just made the sword yokes blue.  I know they'd look less like swords, but I think the jersey would be far more vivid. 

 

I never did like the old yoke, but color-balance-wise, they've taken a huge step backwards.

This picture is something that keeps pulling me back. How is it that the new jersey appears to be out of focus and the old jersey looks crisp and sharp.

 

I know - it's their use of color. But, wow, this blows my mind how much better the old number 8 looks compared to the new number 8.

Lions

 

Thank god they let us know what team they were. I wouldn't have been able to figure that out (Seahawks, Browns, Tampa Bay).

Are the Vikings' number points stupid: yes.

 

Do they ruin the overall uniform: absolutely not. They're far less annoying that the odd top left corners on the Dolphins in my mind. 

 

Nike also gets a lot of credit in my book for finally figuring that the Vikings look best with single color numbers.
