2013 NFL

75 posts in this topic

As per some sources, this will be a big redesign year for Nike, where they make the changes they wanted to (Giants, Jaguars, Dolphins already have preliminary plans). What do you think will be the next step for some teams? Naturally, I believe unification of Coyboys blues, edit of Colts and Jets Bok stripes, and Eagles' midnight green changed.

(you can see red uni and thickly striped pants in works, and the guy references 2013 a LOT)

Also, I've heard the alternate unis for this year are believed to be a bit radical, and fans should stay tuned.

too bad they didn't fully reject the 1990's nike alterations and go back to the lombardi era striping.

I would rather they drop the 1980s Forrest Gregg collar stripes, myself.

As long as Dallas unifies the blue color scheme and the Jaguars change the mess they have then I will be good.

I think a big, more thought out change, is in store for the eagles. It makes no sense otherwise why they'd pass on switching to the new template....the Eagles would be almost unchanged by it.

So what are they planning on doing to the dolphins that's new. I knew the Jags were going "Oregon with steroids" for 2013 which after seeing Seattle that worries me ?... And I've heard bout NYG and Possible NYJ and The Eagles but I haven't heard the Dolphins.

I wonder if the alts are going to essentially be NFL pro combats ?

Sadly I see neither of those things happen. The Cowboy's tradition seems to be more important to them than consistency, and the Jaguars are moving away from a unique color scheme to a bland one.

Only if a/ the respective teams sign off on the idea and b the NFL allows them to, which I just can't see happening. (Nor would I want it to.)

Except that mess of colors is not their tradition. It is a fairly recent development in their history. The pants appeared more silver than silver green today and Lukas mentioned a change in several teams' metallics and specifically mentioned the Cowboys, so I hope they at least took a step in the right direction with silver... and follow suit next year with blue.

Interesting to see what will be in store for my Giants. I don't see them changing their entire uni set, maybe little things, but why not this year if they were going to make changes?

Also, it doesn't matter what happens, people are going to complain about Nike and anything they do. So there's no point in talking about it.

Most teams did the changes they wanted in the NHL when the new company came in, interesting that only the Seahawks made significant changes.

We already kind of knew this, but cool about the shoe colors being jersey specific. Might as well be...uniform.

My favorite all time look of ours. Too bad it was when we were bad on the field. If I ever tinkered w/ the Packers jerseys other than the embedded G in the stripes would be to put a gold border around the numbers.

They almost did that, in 1994.

Not until next year.

Great, a year long thread of baseless rumours and pointless comments about what Nike should do, but we all know they won't!

Except for the helmet logo riding on the earhole. Always thought that was comically bad.

There has been talk of the Dolphins making a switch for a few years now.

Agreed, worst Packer look bar none.

There's no reason to read anything at all into their refusal to switch to the new template. Maybe they simply liked the old materials better. Switching or not would have no bearing on whether they changed in the future.

There is absolutely no reason, other than your baseless speculation, to think that they're planning a more thought out change. They've been untouched since the 2003 re-design, and have one of the most consistent brand images in the entire league. You may not like their look, but there is no indication or nothing to go on that could possibly be used as a basis for thinking that they're planning a change.

Of course, this entire thread is just going to be baseless speculation, misinformation, lies, and post padding, so whatever.

:clapping:

Who ISN'T looking forward to a full year of "They should change X" when you know that the said team has zero intention of changing X (like the Cowboys' silver variations).

I tried to get Rashean Mathis to reveal some details about the new Jaguars uniforms at the Nike event yesterday, but he's a veteran and he's too smart to give anything away. Seems like a certainty that the team is changing, though.

They didn't and they won't.
