  1. Almost all of these teams would improve by getting rid of the navy, the most overused color in all sports. The Bears started out with navy, and still look great, despite the Broncos poaching their colors. The Seahawks and Patriots changed to navy due to the fact that all blue colors in the NFL turned to navy around 2000 - throw them back. The Texans look 100% generic with their boring navy uniforms. The Titans should have kept the Oilers colors. The Cowboys are a disaster and should use the royal blue, not the navy.
  2. I just don't know how you could compare the dumpster fire of the Bledsoe Bills to today's Rams. Is the bone a disappointment? Sure. But replace that with white, get rid of the gradient, and the unis are fine - as opposed to pretty much every element of that Bills uniform sucking. And also, no team should ever use navy again. Not as an accent color, and certainly not as a primary.
  3. It just makes me wonder what could have been. The same uniform, using white and not dirty gray, would be pretty terrific (ignoring the pointless gradients). What a missed opportunity.
  4. I will never, ever understand the love for the yellow Steeler helmets everyone else seems to love. The Steelers were absolutely terrible during their yellow helmet era. Why commemorate that? Beyond that, the yellow helmet just doesn't look like the Steelers to me. Maybe Green Bay or early-1970s Football Team, but not Steelers.
  5. Yes, a couple years ago they changed the shade of orange to match the Bengals' orange color. A huge mistake if you ask me.
  6. I admit that I simply do not understand the love for gray facemasks. They were gray in the first place because the finishing technology wasn't there - if they could have been painted on during the "gray era," they would have been. To my eyes, gray facemasks are dull and ugly. Facemasks should always, always be a team color. Possibly the Giants could wear a gray facemask with their gray pants and look okay. Otherwise, nope. Unpopular opinion, but there it is.
  7. Likewise, there's nothing in the rules that says a dog can't play wide receiver!
  8. Thanks. I agree; the Bills should have a red helmet with a white facemask - their best look.
  9. Guess this one's about to be shut down, too, then. Surely the mods wouldn't be so inconsistent.
  10. That would mean they'd have to change the helmet and lose the EE, which nobody wants.
  11. That's just silly, because modern college uniforms now follow the Oregon template: throw everything into a blender and add as much crap as possible. By contrast, NFL uniforms generally look professional, which is what you want from a professional league.
  12. I do not like them, and I would love to see a return to the old classic uniforms they ditched for this set, but I would in fact put the current Broncos uniforms down with Arizona and Cincinnati. They were never good and have just gotten more and more stale over time. First, of course, they ripped off the Bears' colors when their royal blue worked just fine. In fact, they may be the originators of the navy trend that made the NFL so hard to look at for 20 years, and if so they have a lot to answer for. No, it is not. That ugly round font with the weird serifs? Yeah, not good anywhere, and particularly not on a football uniform. The helmet is trash. The navy problem I already discussed, that weird and ugly stripe, and the way they threw out the wonderful "D" logo for an oblong monstrosity (seriously, oblong logos like the Patriots or the Broncos are ugly and bad design unless they fit the shape of the helmet like the Green Bay G or the Chargers' bolt) all put the helmet down as one of the worst in the league. Just because a uniform doesn't have piping or tiger stripes or yokes doesn't automatically make it good. The Broncos look like the Nike logo with those side panels and always have. Which of course is how they were designed to look by Nike. They're a giant ad! Burn it and throw it back to the previous set, or even the set before that which I think I actually like even better if we could only bring the sleeves back.
  13. Truth. It's so sad that such an awesome helmet is paired with the complete garbage pile that is the Bengals' uniforms. And they've had them for many, many years now, so they're never likely to change them. Also, the Broncos. They only looked cool for a couple years in the 90s. And like the Bengals, they got rid of an iconic uniform to switch to that mess.
