  1. This is awesome. Great name, great colors, great logo, great jersey. I'm excited.
  2. Going to go through my thoughts on all of them: Buccaneers - Would add red socks to the road uniform and some white or silver trim to the alternate so it's more legible. Falcons - Still don't love the side panels but a massive improvement on the newest set. Great job on keeping the theme of the redesign while making it better. Colts - I'm a big proponent of adding a second stripe to the helmet, but otherwise perfect. Browns - Just about perfect here as well. I'm in the brown facemask camp personally, but there really isn't a bad option. Patriots - You should switch out the navy socks for white ones on the road uniform, otherwise it'll be too bottom heavy. Chargers - Perfection. Rams - This is a massive, massive improvement. You did a fantastic job of incorporating the new elements without going overboard. Like with the Patriots, I would switch out the socks on the road so they don't match the pants, or just drop the blue pants entirely. These are all fantastic, I'm impressed. Lots of great font choices, too. Where did you find them?
  3. Decided to update this since the actual uniforms were released. This aims to correct the new uniforms while staying true to their concept. Changes made to the original: Shoulder, pant, and sock stripes changes to reflect patterns found on new uniforms. Collar stripe on white jersey changes from navy to grey to better incorporate the color into the road uniform. Navy over navy and white over grey combos added. Changes made to actual: Font returned to that from previous set. Collar stripe added. Grey pant option added. White sock option added. Numbers added to sleeve caps, logo removed. Navy over grey and white over navy would be the primary uniforms. Navy over grey would be worn for 5 or 6 of the home games and for any road games when necessary, plus all home playoff games, with white over navy being worn for nearly every road game. Navy over navy would be worn for 2 or 3 home games every season. White over grey would be the least used option, being worn once per season if used at all.
  4. I haven't weighed in on the new uniforms yet, been waiting to really think my opinions through. This is basically the first time in my lifetime that any of my favorite teams have made a significant change to their branding. My opinions on the previous uniforms: They'll always be associated with arguable the strongest 20-year run in NFL history, and as a fan, that obviously clouds my judgement. However, I'm generally a pretty big fan of the previous set. The home uniform was a classic. With the exception of the side piping, there really wasn't a flaw in my opinion. The colors were balanced very well throughout, and I loved the combination of navy and silver with red as an accent. It also combined white and silver in the same palette in a way that looks good, which is something that can be difficult to do when balancing them with two other strong colors. The number font was traditional but distinctive. The road uniform is a little worse. I love white striped socks, but the ones found on this uniform made little sense and were a holdover from when Adidas was the manufacturer. The side panels don't look good, but they look better here than on many other uniforms of the same vintage. The stripes on the pants are boring, and silver is only found on the helmet. The color balance is not optimal, but the overall look is still a good one. The new uniforms: Helmet: The helmet is unchanged, and I'm very happy about this. The silver shell used by the team is fantastic, and the red facemask is distinctive. While a polarizing feature, it's always been one of my favorite parts of the uniform. Jerseys: I like the move to the UCLA-style stripes. They have a long history in New England's uniforms, and this striping with the modern colors is a nice medium between the older brands and the modern one. The lack of numbers on the sleeve caps in favor of the Flying Elvis irritates me, but that's a minor flaw. Red as the prominent color in the stripes works well with the the facemask, and the bright red contrasts nicely with the navy jersey. Red/navy/red also looks good on the white jersey. As someone with experience in broadcasting, I dislike an aspect of the uniform meant to make the lives of fans and broadcasters easier being stripped from the uniform, but aesthetically there is little difference. The logo does look good there, although it's repetitive with the logo on the helmet. I'm glad they kept the double outline with the numbers. I've always like the look of white outlined by grey and red. Replacing the white outline with a grey one on the white jersey was a good move for color balance and consistency, and it's one that should've been made for the white jerseys of the original set. I don't agree with the change in font, and I think the previous one was very strong. However, the new one is inoffensive and I have no real issue with it. The jerseys are very strong in my opinion. Pants: This is where things begin to fall apart. The positive: it appears the pants used at the unveiling were wrong and the actual pants fixed the stripe to match the one on the shoulders. I'm not usually a fan of monochrome, but the navy over navy does look good to me. The matching stripes make it work, and the helmet actually works pretty well with them. However, this set desperately needs a silver set to match. These silver pants should be worn for most of the home games, with the all-navy look being reserved for a few games per season. White over navy should be the primary look on the road, and the silver pants can be used occasionally here as well. Socks: I really like the new navy socks. The red stripe at the bottom is a really nice touch. But there should be a white pair to be worn on the road with the navy pants. Just take the red/navy/red stripe from the jersey, throw it on a white sock, and call it a day. Overall ratings: Previous home uniform - 8/10. A modern classic with a few flaws. Previous road uniform - 7/10. A slightly worse version of the home uniform. Home uniform - 7/10. A fine uniform that needs additional pant options. Road uniform - 4/10. Far too bottom heavy, with silver and white on top and all navy below the belt. Needs additional sock option. My fixes here:
  5. Made this concept a few weeks ago, I feel like we'll see something similar to this:
  6. Very curious about the TV numbers. They don't have them on the Color Rush, and I don't see where there's room on this one either.
  7. Looks like the same helmet to me. Teaser seems to hint at a merging of new and old, which would fit the idea of updated Color Rush uniforms.
  8. These look like I'm looking at numbers without wearing my 3D glasses.
  9. Interesting. New England's Color Rush uniforms don't have TV numbers, instead having a stripe over the shoulder and the Flying Elvis on the shoulder cap.
  10. Ditch the alternate and add a pair of orange pants and this is perfection.
  11. Get ready for an all Anvil Black Color Rush with blue numbers outlined in white, with the double white stripes filled in with a single blue one.
  12. After the Falcons unveilved their uniforms yesterday, I was inspired to update my concept from a few years ago. I know it's similar to what the Jets have currently, but my original version of this dates back to 2016. Here's what I did: - The red is brighter. Maybe it's just me, but I've always found their red to be just a shade too dark. At least the version from Team Color Codes is very drab on my screen. - Helmet stays the same as the previous iteration. It looks good. No need to change it. - The home jersey stays red, but the piping and sleeve cap design go. They're replaced by a chest stripe inspired by the primary logo. The font stays the same, but the drop shadow is gone. - The white jersey is an inverted version of the home one, with red and white being swapped. The only change is the chest text gets changed from Falcons to Atlanta, and the color is changed from black to red. - The pants are white, with a simple black-red-black stripe. - The socks are taken from the 2009-2012 throwbacks, with black base, red bottom third, and thin white stripe above that. I've always loved that look.
  13. Look at the Saints, though. They seek input from the fans on twitter, which is where all the monochrome fans live. The fans they'll be consulting will like monochrome.

  15. I can't wait to see how the pewter jerseys look over white pants and and the white ones look over pewter. Really, I think any combination of jerseys and pants will look good for them with this set.
