Ranking the NFL's new uniforms:
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
2. Cleveland Browns
3. Los Angeles Chargers
4. New England Patriots
5. Indianapolis Colts
6. Los Angeles Rams
7. Atlanta Falcons
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- A welcome return to the Super Bowl-winning set complete with a smaller helmet logo. Combine that with the excitement of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski and you have all the eyes on Tampa Bay this upcoming season.
2. Cleveland Browns -- Another return to greatness. This set really shows that less is more. A toss-up here between the Browns and Chargers, the Browns get the nod based on the level of improvement over their previous set.
3. Los Angeles Chargers -- Beginning to see a trend here? Another retro-inspired set. The lines of the new logo are far better and the new typeface/number set is a very nice fit. And who doesn't like powder-blue?
4. New England Patriots -- Finally. They dropped the silly side panels and inconsistent striping. The transition into the classically-striped color rush uniforms, with an evenly-weighted number font, is a welcomed one.
5. Indianapolis Colts -- As lateral of a move as you can make. I even debated including them or not due to the only uniform change was a slab-serif addition to the number font. The wordmark and alternate logo changes are fine. Nothing to complain about.
6. Los Angeles Rams -- Unveiled today, and not as bad as I feared. The logos did not give me much hope. Negatives: gradient stripes/numbers, no TV numbers, no white set -- a bone grey away uniform instead, a silly team name patch. Positives: the colors, no helmet horn gradient.
7. Atlanta Falcons -- Bland. Generic. Boring. Hard to do when you have a red, black, and silver color palette. They took Tampa's oversized helmet logo and silver facemask out of the garbage and proudly pair it with a red-to-black gradient uniform with a side-panel stripe. Woof.
