  1. I feel I could peel off those numbers and layer the bottom of my shoe for sole support.
  2. They've been out a week, and I'm yearning for the previous set. The Mike Vick era black pants version particularly. The Falcons fans online seem to love the new ones in large part. That's what counts most I'd say for the organization POV. I
  3. More on the team wordmark on the chest - the Browns are now the 10th team to not have a name written on the front of the jersey. Oakland, Indianapolis, Detroit, Green Bay, Chicago, New Orleans, Carolina, Pittsburgh, and Jacksonville are the others. Note - The Steelers (since 1997) and Jags do have their team logo on the right front shoulder.
  4. Kudos for not adding the small team wordmark beneath the shield. That white space looks so clean.
  5. Hey to us Gen Xers decades ago is still the 60s and 70s
  6. Just an aside but even though all three of these photos are between 1991 and 1993, they look like they're from decades ago compared to today's finely tailored and slim fitting uniforms/padding. I started watching that era in real time in my teens. Just don't remember ever thinking how for-lack-of-better-term clumsy teams looked then.
  7. This white version is exquisite. I'd say the majority of the plethora of Thomas Brady jerseys that will soon flood the country will be bought in this color. My only irritation is the team wordmark. Curse the mid-90s Dallas Cowboys for making this a thing
  8. The theme of reverting back to older styles continues. - Buffalo, Miami, Minnesota, San Francisco and now Tampa all ditched wavy, new-age designs for their earlier sets. Bucs are off the worst dressed list currently occupied by Tennessee, Jacksonville, Jets, Arizona and Cleveland
  9. It'll make the Miami-FSU games look just like the good old 80s/90s era
  10. Old school is new school. These look like what Duke last wore in 2004 before they added black outlines.
  11. Packers all white last night were a solid set.
  12. Remember years back we feared how used to ads we'd become. Count me as having succumbed to that and even for a set like San Antonio hate to admit prefer the logo + ad patch look vs the blank shoulders in 2017. The elements add more variety, though could be a symptom of how basic the Spurs sets have always been.
  13. They literally just brought back the pre 1995 jerseys? Like 50 million Americans not old enough to remember that year. Should've brought those back a decade ago imo
  14. Meh. Since Nike took over the excitement of new uniforms isn't the same. Seems like every team regularly wears 4 versions throughout the season, with some completely abandoning the default team colors.
  15. Makes it more puzzling is there is not even any novelty to it since you've had a team wear that black/grey/silver combo for 40 years in San Antonio.
  16. I was really about to go off on incorporating black out of nowhere but realized they did have black trim in the Ken O'Brien/Blair Thomas 90s set so I have no grounds there. But going the Browns route with lettering stitched on the front is a mistake as this element is too far afield for this league, especially with so many sets unchanged going on decades. Someone brought it up earlier in the thread - a NCAA group of five worthy look. Marshall Thundering Herd and North Texas Eagles should be flattered by the imitation. Positive wise the helmet is outstanding in every way.
  17. ^Compounded even moreso by the colors Carolina blue and Navy being so attractive together. Titans have had a gold-level color scheme since 1998, but choose to throw that commodity away with that above design.
  18. It’s a bigger problem in that each team has so many more variations of jerseys it’s going to blur the line on what their ‘standard’ set is. And the Nike labeling is upsurd as who can keep track of the names for each set. Earned vs city vs icon. It’s just a mess.
  19. Ha had to comment it makes me smile knowing people born in 90s still know about my Houston Oilers! What a great franchise they were.
  20. Olden Polynice era Sacatomato Kings puncturing your vision with the gradient introduction, and then the Bison Dele era Pistons succumbing to the teal craze of the decade, very badly as you can see. Circa 1995-1998 I wanna say.
  21. Lakers home games have always been color on color except Sundays (since 2003).
  22. Is there not some steady creep in the size of the ad space. I remember it was supposed to be either 2x2 or 2x3... and with this one the squarespace font looks to take up a lot more room.
  23. Basically how not to do a red and black game. Compare to what an Ohio State vs Georgia game if they've ever faced off as the opposite standard.
  24. Adidas thinking this is their showcase is sorely mistaken. What a disaster visually. NCSU needs to go back to swoosh.
