  1. That's very interesting input, thanks! I would guess this means the Jets will be wearing the green pants a lot, then.
  2. Taking a look at the Pats schedule to predict what each team could wear: Week 1: New England Patriots vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, 8:20 p.m. (NBC) We should see the same thing we did in 2015. Standard uniforms for both teams, with the Patriots wearing a special jersey patch. Week 2: New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins, 1 p.m. (CBS) White throwbacks for the Dolphins, so I'd assume the Pats will be in their home uniforms. Week 3: New England Patriots vs. New York Jets, 1 p.m. (CBS) This is tough to call, with the Jets wearing new uniforms and having a new coach. New England will wear their blue over grey at home, and I'd guess the Jets wear white over green. Week 4: New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m. (CBS) Standard home vs standard road. Week 5: New England Patriots at Washington Redskins, 1 p.m. (CBS) Last year, the Redskins wore maroon over white for most of their home games. I'd guess that continues, with the Patriots countering in their usual road uniforms. Week 6: New England Patriots vs. New York Giants, 8:20 p.m. (FOX/NFL Network/Amazon**) Color rush for both teams. The Pats have consistently worn them on Thursday night, as have the Giants. In addition, New England may try to avoid the typical home vs road matchup, in which they have lost the last 3 games. Week 7: New England Patriots at New York Jets, 8:15 p.m. (ESPN) In their second, and last, prime-time home game of the year, I would expect New York to showcase their all black uniforms. The Patriots would wear white over blue. Week 8: New England Patriots vs. Cleveland Browns, 4:25 p.m. (CBS) In the last two seasons, the Patriots have worn their color rush uniforms in one non-Thursday game. Don't be surprised if they decide to break out the all-blue for the second time in 2019 against Cleveland. Guessing what the Browns will wear is more difficult, but based on last season, I'd guess they white over orange with brown socks. Week 9: New England Patriots at Baltimore Ravens*, 8:20 p.m. (NBC) Predicting what the Ravens would wear used to be easy. After they wore 10 different uniform combinations last year, however, that can no longer be said. In their first home prime-time game, I'd guess they wear black uniforms with either black or purple pants. I'll pick black. The Pats would be in their standard road uniforms, setting up a uniform rematch of their 2007 Monday night tilt. Week 10: BYE WEEK Week 11: New England Patriots at Philadelphia Eagles, 4:25 p.m. (CBS) This should be a uniform rematch of Super Bowl LII, minus the jersey patches. White over blue against green over white. Week 12: New England Patriots vs. Dallas Cowboys, 4:25 p.m. (FOX) If the Pats don't wear their color rush against the Browns, this could be an option. However, the Pats have gone light at home the last two times they've played Dallas at Gillette. I'm guessing they go white over navy at home, forcing the visiting Cowboys into their navy jerseys. They would likely pair them with their grey pants. Week 13: New England Patriots at Houston Texans*, 8:20 p.m. (NBC) Although the Texans wore their red over white in their 2015 home Sunday night contest against New England, I do not expect a repeat this year. Houston has made a habit of wearing blue over white in prime-time in recent seasons, and I don't expect that to change. This should be a navy-heavy contest, with the visitors sporting white over navy. Week 14: New England Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 4:25 p.m. (CBS) This should be blue over grey vs white over red. These teams have settled into those pairings over the last few match-ups, and I don't see that changing this time around. There is an outside chance New England wears all-blue, but I find that unlikely this late into the season. Kansas City could also decide to wear white pants, which they haven't worn in New England since their 2015 playoff loss. Week 15: New England Patriots at Cincinnati Bengals, 1 p.m. (CBS) The Bengals have worn black over black in their second to last home game for the past two seasons. I predict they do it again in 2019, making this season a black-heavy one for the Patriots, who would wear their standard road uniform. Week 16: New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills, TBD (TBD) For the third straight season, these two teams will face off in New England during week 16. The Bills have gone white over white and white over blue for each of the last two meetings. I'll stick with the recent trend and say the Bills go white over white against the Pats in blue over grey. Week 17: New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins, 1 p.m. (CBS) The Dolphins have worn white over aqua in their last three meetings in New England,, and after wearing all-white in their first match-up this season, I anticipate Miami will continue the trend and bring some color to this game. The Patriots will end the regular season in their standard home uniform. I'll have to come back to this in January to see how accurate I was.
  3. The Dolphins have made a tradition of wearing alternate uniforms against New England. They wore the aqua throwbacks for the last two meetings in Miami, and the aqua over aqua in the two games in Miami before that. In 12 meetings between the two franchises since the 2013 update, Miami has worn their regular aqua jerseys only twice, and they've never worn them over white pants. That seems unlikely to change in 2019. Miami could seemingly go an entire iteration of uniforms without wearing their standard dark uniform against a division rival. That is mind boggling to me.
  4. I agree with you there. Anniversary patches or having the 50 on the field colored gold are cool things that help with this. This year will certainly be easily identifiable in pictures.
  5. Putting the NFL 100 logo on the collar is going to irritate me all year long. The NFL shield fits that space so well, and having the smaller shield with text above it just doesn't work in that small of a space. It seems so unnecessary. I'm not a fan of the NFL 100 logo either, but that's a different story.
  6. Those are gorgeous. Miami needs to adopt that color palette and striping full time.
  7. As someone that knows absolutely nothing about cricket, I am thoroughly confused looking at that. I'm not even sure where the score is.
  8. I'm a big fan of compromising and using a sublimated flag. You still get the state representation with a cool design, and it isn't as busy or loud as just using the flag itself.
  9. The brim on that monochrome Bills hat makes it look like a Tampa Bay Lightning hat instead.
  10. This skips over one of my favorite bits on uniform history trivia. When Toronto originally complied with the new rule requiring NOB, they put blue letters on the backs of their blue jerseys as a protest. Their owner, Harold Ballard, believed people wouldn't buy programs if the team had their names on their jerseys. After a game or two of the same-colored NOB, Toronto relented to pressure from the NHL and complied with the rule. Still, that act from Ballard is one of my favorite moments of malicious compliance in sports history.
  11. That is simply gorgeous. Throw in a set of white pants to be worn occasionally, and you've nailed it. Bravo!
  12. I really don't mind this uniform. I actually think the Chargers look better in monochrome with their current uniforms.
  13. I really hope they don't put that logo at midfield for the Super Bowl...
  14. If there's one good thing that can be said about the standardized logos, it's how good they look on the jerseys. The patches they've used are very high quality, and they are always shiny. I think this magnifies the "big game" feel, and it makes them stand out. As a patch, which looks better? This: Or this: I think LII is clearly superior.
  15. If CBS does unveil a new graphics package for the Super Bowl, I expect to see something "shinier". For some years now, we've seen sports graphics become simpler and flatter. Compare FOX graphics from 15 years ago to this season and you'll see a monumental difference. However, NBC bucked the trend last year with their new package featuring gradients and shadowing galore. I believe that this will be the first in a trend back in the direction of fancier scorebugs. If CBS does make this change, then I think we will be seeing changes in that direction all throughout the world of sports.
  16. Thank you! Just a hobby, although I'd like to turn it into a job someday if it works out.
  17. I hate the alignment of the logos and wordmarks in the endzone. It leaves so much empty space on the sides. There's clearly room for a conference logo for both teams, so why isn't there one?
  18. Reviving this to promote the Super Bowl LIII Trailer I made with my friend at school.
  19. Has anybody seen pictures of the field? I'm curious to see if the design will be any different this year.
  20. Yes, it bothers me. There should be two stripes on the helmet.
  21. Seahawks breaking out the gray pants in Dallas. When was the last time they wore navy over gray?
  22. The Kings are unique in that they have two, possibly even three, distinct color schemes that have a long history and would make for fantastic branding. Whether you want them to wear purple and gold, black and silver, or purple and black is simply a matter of personal opinion because all three have very valid arguments for being the "true" color scheme of the Kings.
