Jaguars To Get New Uniforms

90 posts in this topic

Since the other one got rundown by hooligans, we'll start another one and keep it on topic.

This black Matte Helmet was tweeted by @TDJaxTim It's a cool rendering and a great photoshop job by him. Don't know if I would want it permanately, but it looks better than I thought it would.

The more I see that logo on that helmet, makes me realize how great a logo it actually is. The uniforms have just diluted their identity for the last 16 years.

Fun fact: I joined this forum nearly 3 years ago because I was looking for any information I could find on Jacksonville's new unis. Up until that point, I'd been lurking on a Jaguars fan forum.

So thank you Jacksonville for leading me to find this wonderful place to geek out on all things sports uniforms. :D

I wish they'd get away from decals and instead actually embed it onto the helmet's surface (if the helmet is black) to use that awesome negative space.

But idk about black as a primary, we are known as teal town for a reason.

There are two very interesting words in the headline on nfl.com:

====

Khan: Jags to wear Nike-designed all-black uniforms in 2013

===

Looking forward (partially in trepidation) to seeing what they come up with.

As for that helmet, a matte finish with a shiny vinyl decal looks goofy.

Anyone else wish Carolina would go with a matte black helmet?? With a thick blue stripe with thin white or silver stripes on the side??

Jaguars owner Shahid Khan told 1010 AM in Jacksonville Friday that the team will switch to primarily all-black uniforms in 2013, when the team changes uniform-makers from Adidas to Nike.

Say what? I am disinclined to give much credence to reports that include crazy details such as this. I know Reebok is part of adidas, but evcen still, given that all the reports I've seen of this come back to one not very impressive looking source, I remain cynical as to its veracity.

Well, if you'd like to get really technical, they're changing uniform makers from Ripon to Nike.

Actually, the logo looks good in the matte black helmet. If the Jags were to use a black helmet,they should use the matte or regular helmets and not that reflective crap.

Numerous errors in that article make me question it. Switching from Adidas to Nike in 2013? They're switching from Reebok, not Adidas, and the switch is in 2012, not 2013. The Jaguars' alternate uniforms will be black and white, with teal as a second alternate? Someone doesn't know the meaning of the word Alternate, apparently. Posted on NFL.com but reads like something on Bleacher Report, if Bleacher Report had anything other than inane Top 10/20/50 lists.

That article is definitely horribly written, but the facts are readily available in many other places. The owner said this stuff live on the radio. There's no reason to question the validity of the larger story.

At this point, since the Jaguars Blaguars done just about completely diluted what little bit of an identity they have left, they may as well just blow it all up and start all the way over. They've offically become the NFL's version of the San Diego Padres, identity-wise?they don't know what they wanna look like.

And as far as the all-black thing...J. Wayne started this back in either '04 or '05 when he brought the solid black pants into the fold, this just two or three years (IIRC) after the road jersey numbers went from teal to black. I remember rumors then that he was considering dropping the teal altogether and just going with black and gold. This 2013 thing may just be the closing of that loop...unless they end pulling an Arizona Rattlers-esque usage of color hierarchy.

Either way...its really been unfortunate to watch the destruction and degradation of the Jagua?excuse me, Blaguars'?identity over the years.

Actually, it will be a switch from Ripon to Powers (if Nike continues to partner with Powers).

Waterloo company makes uniforms for the Army/Navy game

Klieman says that some of that new technology will also be utilized when Nike takes over the design of the N.F.L.?s uniforms next year. He notes that Powers is currently in talks to partner with Nike to manufacture some of those N.F.L. uniforms.
