Jacksonville Jaguars Uniform Documentary

Recommended Posts

Around 6:30 the guy is saying the two tone helmet let players see when Jaguars heads were turning on field. Followed by this idea that all black is the most competitive “camo” for a helmet one could have. Unreal!

"Teal is the heart of the brand"   So let's only wear it 3 times.  Fans have been screaming for a teal primary and you stick with black because you want to own black?  YOU LITERALLY OWN TEAL!!! Why try to "own" something that so many other teams have?

It’s the 5:30 mark. That was the owner who is worth a few billion dollars. He’s also correct in saying the two toned helmet was a competitive disadvantage.

Yea that part made zero sense. If teal is the heart of the brand, why the hell isn’t it even used on the away uniforms?

Shad may be a billionaire, but it's fairly apparent from this video that he doesn't know a ton about football.  I played and I now coach, and yes, there are slight cues...but whoever told him about the color of the helmet and turning of the head thing?  Bro.....:unsure:

Smart people though put smarter people around them.  He hired Coughlin back, and that's paying off.

Funny they seemed to have left out the "what's the cheapest? black? ok make it the primary then" conversation from the video. Strange.

Completely baseless comment.

He’s harped on that point over and over again, almost as if it was the sole factor instigating the whole redesign, and I really just feel like it’s his way of admitting “we effed that up” without straight up having to say “because it was gaudy and made us a laughingstock.”

Is this the one they showed at the draft night thing?

"We have three players that should be in the Hall of Fame; Tony Boselli, Fred Taylor, and Jimmy Smith."

 

He is not wrong.

 

I never watched the Titans video or the Fins' one, but the lack of marketing speak in the first five minutes is nice.

I think the comment about the players loving to wear all black is telling. I'm sure the equipment guy hears from players all the time. 

 

It makes less sense that if you're pushing teal as a signature color, why leave it out of the away uniform?

Well I remember there being alot of conversation back even before the dark ages ( 08 - 13 ) that the players really liked the black jerseys went they were introduced but they were speical and orginally for prime time games but they made their way into Sunday Afternoons with along with the black pants options. Along with that the players weren't feeling intimidating enough in teal and that it wasn't a masculine enough of a color but also remember this was the mid going into the late 00's when everything dark was hip and black on top of black with a little extra black was the desired looked by athletes and some folks.

Those "slight clues" are a world of difference to a professional athlete. Don't scoff at it because the 12 year olds you coach don't know what to do with it.

This may be a topic for another thread but I think its worth looking at the degree to which current players enjoy going monochrome in general. We may look at the bodysuit look and think its for bobsledding but for them giving the appearance of speed would be a good thing. Color Rush aside, 20 of 32 teams went mono chromatic at some point last season.

Does that include white over white?

My count does not include white over white or Color Rush. White over white predates the modern monochrome look by several decades. Color Rush is a deliberate marketing ploy so it wouldn't reflect any trend in ordinary uniform use. 

 

The earliest I can trace the modern trend is 1997 when the Broncos and Eagles both went mono. It then disappears until 2001 when the Saints went mono-black all season. In 2002 it exploded to 9 teams.

Yeah, you clarified that it didn't include color rush, but I wasn't sure if you counted white over white

Yeah, I was wondering about that myself makes much more sense after the clarification.

can confirm a lot of players have said they like "when the jersey matches the pants". and so many of these guys have probably played in that kind of combination since high-school; its normal for them

yea thats sounds like complete non-sense. as if a big ass Braisher stripe (Packers, browns, Saints, 49ers) down the center of the helmet would be any different
