  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    (I'd love it if the Saints put the state logo back on the sleeve. Yeah, it's asymmetrical, but I liked it)

    I always thought of it as a NOB font used exclusively by Champion...never realized the Saints still use a version of it today (slight differences but the curvy sans-serif letters are similar).

     

    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.

    season.

    Why is there a black nike swoosh with a red outline in this pic?

     

    Edit: never mind just bad lighting.

     

    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


  5. 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


  6. 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.

    Great job, Detroit. You guys manage to screw up even the simplest of things. I'm so ready for this black and gray jersey trend to be over.

     

    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.  


  8. 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.   


  9. ^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


  10. 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.

    *Raises hand* 

    I care but I'm not a huge fan of this color change. I was born in '94 and all I ever associated with those colors are bad teams with a boring drab color scheme. 

     

    Think Oilers but replace much of the white with yellow. 

    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.


  12. 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.
