At least they wore the red socks. I fear that will end up not being the case most of the time. Matching socks and pants is never a good look.

I'm curious to see if they have a full or half collar.

Its full. They are wearing white with all black collar

Wow. Jaguars are still the worst looking team on the field.

And I hate to say it too, but the Bucs don't look as horrible as anticipated. The spray paint helmet stripes are still dumb, and the helmet logo is still just one size too big. However, the numbers don't look as terrible from a distance, when you can't see the notches in them, and the red/pewter balance is actually pretty solid. They look fine on the field.

Of course, the devil is still in the details and they are infuriating in close. And I'm sure as the game goes on and the reflective numbers come into play, it'll highlight that part of the awfulness. The chrome facemask is still dumb, too.

But, from a game-viewing standpoint, they're ok.

How are my fellow west coaster's watching the game? What channel is it on?

EDIT: phutmasterflex beat me to it, but here are a few more pics.

The Eagles unis look a lot....cleaner. The numbers are closer together, and the jersey material seems more snug. Looks like they adopted the NIke flywire/template/jersey material this season. I'm liking it.

(sorry, only cell phone pics from my TV for now :grin:)

The lack of jersey stretching is really evident here:

Back of the jersey (Brent Celek's jersey is usually stretched to all hell around his pads):

I wonder why the Eagles made the change. Were they not happy with what they had previously?

No idea. I'm thinking maybe Nike just stopped producing the legacy cut/template the Eagles used.

I wonder if the Raiders, Panthers and Packers switched to the new template also.

Watching Panthers game now. No change. Raiders have no change too if I am seeing it right. And Pack won't touch iconic uniform look.

One more Eagles pic

After seeing these uniforms on in play, I'm gonna change my stance on them being the 2nd worst in the league. They are definitely the worst uniform set in the league. Heck, at least Jacksonville looks decent from the neck down. But the Bucs looks like garbage from head to toe.

Can't believe I'm going to say this but the Bucs' new look is looking damn good live. Really good!

On the flip side, the Jaguars' helmet is a disgrace. I hate it more tonight than I ever have in the past.

That would be a decent looking game if the Bucs had a normal number font and the Jags had an all-black helmet. Unfortunately the numbers are the biggest design feature on the jersey and the helmet is, well, the helmet.

Every time we see a uniform that was comprehensively designed by Nike, it ends up being pretty bland. This photo caught my eye. Check out how the pants design for Jacksonville and Tampa is extremely similar. Simple triangular shapes and fills in the template. I thought about it and realized this has been a recurring theme. It's not design...it's pure lazy. Tacky helmet idea -- check. Blocky, angular numbers. Check. Triangular inserts passed off as style. Check.

How frustrating is it to watch designers on these boards put together genius ideas, while those actually working behind the scenes are seemingly half-assing it

The more and more I see these new Bucs sets, the more and more I'm convinced the San Francisco Demons have returned to play.
