  1. You're not wrong, though I do kinda like little details like this that tell you exactly which season a photo is from when you look at them in retrospect.
  2. Then the Bears are already well on their way to making this a reality.
  3. This very image is burned into the surface of my brain all thanks to Goth.
  4. I didn’t stop caring. I still despise those numbers and the implications they have on future design, even if I haven’t been continually posting about them.
  5. Dammit, are the navy pants reallly still in the rotation? I was almost more excited about those potentially being gone than anything. They’ve got a good argument for my least favorite pair of pants in the league, honestly. Who cares?
  6. The only way that they’d be having the same problems that the Rams has is if they planned on unveiling brand new uniforms within the next couple of years (thus not wanting to trigger the five year rule too soon). Which is an exciting thought, frankly.
  7. Ball is in your court now, Jacksonville!
  8. Agreed, I’m forced to watch the Texans play at least twice a season and not once have I looked at their helmet and thought “Damn, sucks that all that I can see on the helmet is a pointy red blob with a Star next to it.” The key line does its job and the helmet as a whole triumphs in its simplicity. Not to mention I personally just think this sucks.
  9. Then its a good thing that they're not doing that. For real, I think that what we're looking forward to here (if anything, since we don't even have a proper confirmation) is something like the Chargers did a few years back that most fans wouldn't really notice.
  10. That’s what makes this frustrating as heck: his info is *practically correct* in the sense that you could have “leaked” that the Jags were going back to an all black helmet a year ago and end up being proven “correct.” It isn’t substantial enough to pin him as some kind of NFL insider leak god or even to demonstrate that the information was actually worth knowing at the time, though it’s just enough for him to be able to run the damn bases when he gets back. *sigh* It’s just a much safer iteration of Dan Parker’s JUST LIKE OREGON!! tactics. I suppose I’m just in denial that someone with such sophomoric posting habits as his could be anywhere near the position to be able to know and leak precious, top secret information about NFL uniforms. I’d sooner expect him to be in the position to leak such info like that Tommy and Susie got to second base in an empty classroom while everyone else was at lunch. I can’t be alone here.
  11. Big unveilings bring out the strangest folks to this weird niche forum.
  12. The guy modeling it is Kent Fuchs, the president of UF, and the Jersey is made to resemble the regalia that he wears to give commencement speeches. It’s well damn done, IMO, even if it’s something that only students will get.
  13. Huh, I’m skeptical but this is pretty similar to to how the Dolphins rumors started that turned out to be true, so this is pretty big if true. The only change I’d make, of course, is for them to wear red socks on the road, though I could foresee them doing something to make it more like the color rush by making the pants stripe red (but hopefully not making the numbers red, though). Heck, they could even make battle red the primary to be slightly more unique while owning their current identity. This’ll be an interesting few weeks until the draft.
  14. You forgot “half-baked comparisons substituting criticism.”
  15. That's gonna get as annoyingly dull as the practice uniform crap from a year ago.
  16. I would prefer green over anything. Same-color facemasks are overlooked and underrated in my book.
  17. The only reason I’d think these are faked is that the design honestly looks a hell of a lot like something that someone here would make in their “NFL Redesign” concept series. It has that simplicity and boldness to it, and a repeating main design element. Anyways, the thing that I’d be most excited to see from this “leak” is that helmet. I was a little skeptical about a green helmet at first, but seeing them potentially go with that gorgeous candy apple finish like the Giants use is so refreshing and relieving considering they had matte and chrome options on the table (as all teams do nowadays).
  18. So, uhh, has anyone else noted that the green looks roughly the same? Perhaps my eyes aren’t as keen as some of the designfolk here, but that does not look Kelly to me. Without saying too much about the logo, I’m just going to express solidarity to you as another “guy who will relentlessly defend his own team’s decidedly ‘underwhelming’ update in the face of many who believe he should raging at how ‘meh’ it is.”
  19. Yeah, you’re right that this isn’t something that we’re not used to. I suppose “a couple of random German hypebeasts who have somehow gotten permission to be the first ones to debut all 32 of the NFL’s 100th season draft caps on their midnight youtube program” never would have crossed my mind as the culprit. Just like “airport window cling graphics being placed too early by maintenance shmucks” wouldn’t have either. It’s always the last place that you’d think of for a leak to happen since that also happens to be the last base that the team thinks to cover to stop a leak. It’s just not possible in 2019.
  20. What a beyond strange way for the logo and color scheme to “leak” (though I guess this confirms that that logo on the branding guide that we saw in that video a month ago was, indeed, a leak). How underwhelming. N-E-W-Y-O-R-K-J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!
  21. I don’t think there’s any demand. Just a couple of uni geeks on a niche forum trying to perform necromancy on an old sports brand.
  22. Sounds Dan Parker-y to me. And I dont think that Nike has ever been so cornily on the nose with their color names as “Jet black” and “limelight.”
  23. The Texans franchise does not and should not even want to take back the Oilers brand. They have a really simple yet strong identity going for them that belongs in this league. I just wish they’d wear red socks more. The look gets slightly drab when they mix navy socks with navy pants so frequently.
  24. Ah nice, and this means that we'll be receiving news any day now that the Jags will be changing their road jersey numbers from black to teal, right? Right??!
