Bring on the double green!  Bucks can be an inspiration.

That might be the most overrated color scheme on this board. It's possible (though not easy) to make a two-tone green look good, if one is strictly a tertiary trim color. But the Irish rainbow? It's rightfully consigned to the same 1980s dustbin as gigantic hair, Reaganism, and KISS.

As much as I don't want it to happen, and as much as I hope the Jets keep to Kelly green and white (that Saskatchewan Roughriders photo someone posted is the perfect colorway), I can completely see the heads in Beaverton pressing into either a dark green or Kelly green paired with volt color scheme, because Nike.  IF the volt is more a greener tint than yellow, and IF they can keep it to an absolute minimum, it probably could work. Still, though, not something I wanna feel on too much.

 

That said, it may be wise to pay some mind to what's going on at Oregon right now, because I can also see that Apple green they use being presented, and pressed, to the Jets brass as well...

That apple green helmet Oregon used is amazing.

I fully expect Nike to use a number / letter font inspired by the one the USAF uses on their planes:

That would actually be pretty cool...

The Jets have never had a "wild" uniform, have always been a pretty traditional team, have had really only two main looks (albeit with variations), and have had consistent ownership for the last 20 years (not considering Chris Johnson a "new" owner since he's just keeping the bed warm... I think.)

 

The main criteria for teams that go off the deep end are either a recent change in ownership and new owners that want to leave their mark, and lack of tradition altogether. The Jets don't meet either of those.  There's no reason to believe they'll change to something wild.

I hope you’re right.

There is a reason. That reason is called Nike.

The other possibility I thought of this morning that would be totally Nike is the Air Force font numbers and letters and then some type of metallic / gunmetal gray material - kind of like what Rutgers had a few years ago:

The corny Nike descriptions write themselves - "Air Force inspired number font to #SupportTheTroops and aircraft metal gray to #PlayLikeAJet"

Yeah, that’s more of a 1970s pop culture piece. By the 1980’s, this is what the band was doing:

 

 

Embarassing hair metal, which followed a run of some decent (for some) disco-rock, a concept album, and a duo of hard rock albums (Creatures of the Night and Lick it Up). A lot of this phase rightfully belongs in the 1980s dustbin. Heck, “Heaven’s on Fire” has the power to turn people cellibate.

 

Back to the Jets, I’d rather just have Kelly back with maybe an additional accent color (light grey preferably - but in smaller doses than the Eagles used). Multi-green really doesn’t suit the team’s traditional aesthetic all that well.

FWIW, I've kinda seen that modernized Jet logo a few different places and a bit more than usual lately. Saw it on some lawn flag at Home Depot in addition to this. Wonder if they might be heading that direction with the redesign by combining the pre-Namath and Sack Exchange era helmets or something like that. [all just observations, don't take this as a sure fire thing]

 

I've been seeing it a lot too over the past few years but... I don't really like it. The word mark is awkwardly shoved into the awkwardly shaped plane silhouette. 

 

They are really pushing the 80s Jets word mark tho.

I would hope the Jets don't do either of them. Those are great college ideas. 

 

Green and white with no inspirational gimmicks would be the best option.

The silver numbers weren't even a great college idea. That's why Rutgers ditched them after a couple seasons.

I can see it now. Nike will have a custom number font for the Jets. There will be jet shaped serifs (like the jet on the 80s Jets helmet) on the numbers.

You had to pick the video in which Paul Stanley is wearing feathered pants and a captain hat?  You could have at least used a better song, like "Tears Are Falling." 

To be fair, this is what bands were wearing in 1985--although KISS probably wore it worse than most.

Watching that video makes me extraordinarily happy that I wasn't alive in 1985. Can't say I realized that Kiss had already ditched the makeup by that point though.

Speaking as a huge Kiss fan and a huger Paul Stanley fan, I have to agree. The only albums which I consider bad are Animalize (1984) (from which comes the execrable "Uh! All Night") and Asylum (1985).

 

And their look was embarrassing in that period. Not until the early 1990s (my favourite period of the band) would they return to a cool look.

It's true that the Jets have no history with multiple shades of green. But for me the use of a darker green as an accent colour would be preferable to the use of black or grey (even if a simple two-colour kelly green and white scheme would be best of all).

The 80s were fine on their own. The problem is eternal; aging rock bands trying to stay current and in so doing betraying their original appeal.

Have we gotten any information as to what direction the jets are heading towards? I remember early on in the Jags process, it was known they will be going more "traditional".

 

Do we have any clues as to this new set?
