Nike Pro Combat - NFL

These were posted on another board, and linked on twitter form Bleacher Report.

Anyone know their source? They are pretty gawd awful, and the person who photoshopped them isn't a pro, the helmet logos aren't skewed correctly at all.

i can only hope they arent out of Nike's offices.

The thought that some people believe these actually came from Nike officials is laughable at best. Nike may be the "evil empire" of sports uniforms, but they at least have some sense of design and history. 90% of these concepts look like stuff created by a bored 12 year old in the EA Team Builder.

those are probably the worst pro combat mock ups I have ever seen. They are terrible!

they even forgot the Browns, I guess whoever did it can't even remember all the teams

Edit: they do have the Browns but for some reason they are called Cribbs? The Cleveland Cribbs?

Andrew did the Cribbs one and the first Colts one is mine. the number font is AKAchen, which is used in my signature on "indianapolis colts"

you know, actually some of these concepts are pretty damn creative. maybe the presentation is off in a few of them...but still.

i wouldnt want half of these to see the light of day, and i also find it laughable when people find this stuff and dont realize they are concepts, but these arent too bad. you can tell someone put some work into them...they just may not have done it as well as others

I would hope that the NFL wouldnt allow this, until I saw the Super Bowl logo for the next 4 or 5 years. It could happen I suppose. But I highly doubt anyone from Nike or the league had anything to do with it.

I give a lot of credit to visualizing the concept of required dry-fit with arm striping. I've thought that was the solution to the shame of disappearing striping, so its nice to see.

Goodness gracious, these are awful. They're all over the blogosphere today, including the Official Ravens site, and a reporter bringing them up to Bill Belichick!

Anyway, we were chatting about it, and Belichick asked what was up? We told him about the maybe new unis.

“Great,” Belichick said, seeming to be, um, not thrilled. “I’m excited to see those. I can’t wait to see those.”

No problem. I flipped my computer around showed him the sketches. He started to laugh, as a reporter told him it resembled Captain America.

“Is it a Halloween costume?” Belichick asked. “I thought Halloween was last month. I’m just focused on Indy. If it’s not Indy, there’s a lot of stuff you can get by me today.”

I think, if nothing else, the fact that people are wiling to take these so seriously, means that EVERYONE has faith that Nike is going to ruin the NFL.

Because Nike is pure evil.

Fairly certain a bulk of these have been showcased here on the boards by members.

So, Brandon... what is the origin of this? was it a concepts section thing? Was it a contest? How did this originate?

Not gonna lie, I think the Eagle's one is pretty neat. It bugs me how many people think these are actual Nike designs though. If Nike does make drastic changes to the NFL, they are going to do it in a more suitable manner than sub par photoshops of the college procombat pictures.

I wonder if Nike is offended that people actually believe this is their s h i t t y work?

i know both of these templates were made available in the concept section of this forum. i believe Davidson made the one i used.

AndrewH started a thread there something along the lines of "when Nike takes over the NFL" (theres a few different threads by a similar name) where he posted his Browns concept. it was just an idea to get the stripes off the jersey and onto the undershirt. i also posted my COlts concept there and a Steelers one (not the one you see above) im pretty sure everyone of these came from those various threads from the concept section. i recognize most, but dont remember who exactly made them all. so im guessing someone browsed those threads and took up a collection.

Yeah, especially the Redskins. They look like the current practice uniforms.
