  1. All the drop shadows were navy as well as the outer most sleeve stripes on the home and alt
  2. A friend of mine who works in media shot it my way
  3. Not that the logo sheet is the end all be all (Bears orange pants comes to mind), but it does imply that there might be a full royal and full navy color rush. Also note the lack of white on the navy one (probably come out with some "midnight storm" theme that's just navy and yellow)
  4. Team Exec 1: "The fans are clamoring for kelly green" Team Exec 2: "No that's too easy, lets give them opposite ends of the green spectrum, then we'll say were moving forward while respecting the past"
  5. True, I actually just took a look at the rule book and if you go from one eligible position to another you don't have to change. So disregard my first post, I stand corrected. ARTICLE 2. PLAYERS NUMBERED BY POSITION. All players must wear numerals on their jerseys in accordance with Rule 5, Section 4, Article 3, Item 3. Such numerals must be by playing position, as follows: (a) quarterbacks, punters, and placekickers: 1–19; (b) running backs and defensive backs: 20–49; (c) centers: 50–79; (d) offensive guards and tackles: 60–79; (e) wide receivers: 10–19 and 80–89; (f) tight ends and H-backs: 40–49 and 80–89; (g) defensive linemen: 50–79 and 90–99; (h) linebackers: 40–59 and 90–99. If a player changes his position during his playing career in the NFL, and such change moves him from a position as an ineligible pass receiver to that of an eligible pass receiver, or from a position as an eligible pass receiver to that of an ineligible pass receiver, he must be issued an appropriate new jersey numeral. A change in jersey numeral is not required if the change is from an ineligible position to another ineligible position, or from an eligible position to another eligible position, provided that the player has participated at least one season at his position prior to the change. Any request to wear a numeral for a special position not specified above (e.g., H-back) must be made to the Commissioner. During the preseason period when playing rosters are larger, the League will allow duplication and other temporary deviations from the numbering scheme specified above, but the rule must be adhered to for all players during the regular season and postseason. Clubs must make numerals available to adhere to the rule, even if it requires returning to circulation a numeral that has been retired or withheld for other reasons.
  6. If they do go back to the Kachinas, I'd like to see them change that green to more of a turquoise. I know the green has historical precedence, but I feel the turquoise would fit in to the southwest/native theme and provide a little more contrast/pop with the red. The green and red are both on the darker/dull side, kinda all blends together IMO.
  7. You probably already know this but just as a sidenote, he was essentially "grandfathered" in when in Chicago since he started as a CB then transferred to WR, but once you go to a new team those positional number rules kick in. He no doubt would've like to have kept 23 at all those other stops. I would say in that situation, given his status/accomplishments, let him keep 23 as an exclusion to the rules, but obviously that's subjective and would open Pandora's box.
  8. I feel like they saw all the praise the throwback inspired Color Rush got, and misinterpreted that as "the fans like white on white" when in reality it was "the fans like stripes and an actual nice shade of gold"
  9. The gold bird with the art deco feel made the old Palermo logo jump into my head...
  10. Some of the Eagles players a couple years back (McCoy and Vick off the top of my head) had the shoulder stitching as well
  11. To the people comparing the pewter on the pants, you have to remember they changed the pewter itself, and the difference in material is just adding to it. On that note I much prefer the old color set overall, especially the old pewter. The current one looks like they wanted to combine the old pewter and black so they'd have one less color.
  12. PDW always seems to have really thin line weights, it makes it look like clip art or an illustration as someone mentioned. I mean the old one wasn't amazing, but this new one makes it look better.
  13. I think he was being sarcastic, referring to the simplicity of their game unis.
