  1. I think Arizona will come to their senses and wear red jerseys/white pants in Carolina.  I would like to see the Panthers wear white jerseys/black pants at home for once they do it on the road several times, why not at home change things up.

     

    Browns should wear O/B/O in Dallas their best combo bar none.  And its still too early for the Eagles to wear green pants this year.

    I am just curious and not criticizing anyone as everyone is entitled to their own opinions but why do so many have an issue with mono football looks but no one seems to complain out them in basketball, hockey or baseball, as every NBA combo is mono and the majority of primary loocs in the MLB and NHL are mono too? 

    I guess I am a traditionalist.  Yes I know NBA and NHL has mono, but they have done so for plenty of years and does look fine on television and in person.  I'm just used to not seeing mono in the NFL until several years ago.  I was more of a fan of the unis 20 years ago because it looked good and more I can say professional when it was just one color jersey and a different style of pants, and I don't mind mono white because it was traditional (Dolphins, Vikings, Browns, etc.), but doesn't mean I am a huge fan of it.  That is the reason why I adore the uniforms of the Packers, Chiefs, Raiders, Bears, Colts, Steelers, etc. because they kept it traditional with the exception of a color rush game every now and then.

    There was a load of that last year in 2019. In fact, most times that teams have done that to them. But this year? Just once. The Rams did it just for Dallas. In 2008 and 2014 the Rams were doing it just for Dallas. The ploy and gimmick to force the Cowboys in navy became popular in the 1980s. Many other teams in history have done it just for Dallas.

     

    Baltimore and Cincinnati were the other two teams that had a chance to put them in the navy. But neither of them will be. The Bengals have a white color rush, they could have been one of those teams, but instead they chose to do that for games against teams like the Titans and Bengals.

     

    I was bummed that neither one of the Bengals or Ravens won't be doing it. But not all is lost. There's a chance for the NFL to have a 17 season game. The Cowboys might not have to wait another 8 years again to visit Baltimore or Cincinnati, if the purported 17 game season comes true.

     

    To be honest with you, I thought this will finally be the time the Seahawks will wear white at home against Dallas this year.  I would love to see Seattle finally pull the stunt and be the team to cross the never wear white at home off their list.  I don't understand why they don't.

    Uniform-wise, I would LOVE to see these matchups:

     

    Week 1: Buccaneers (new white jerseys-pewter pants-adjustable black socks) at Saints (black jerseys-gold pants-adjustable black socks)

    Week 4: Packers (standard road jerseys-pants-adjustable socks) at Saints (black jerseys-gold pants-adjustable black socks)

    Week 10: 49ers (standard road jerseys-pants-adjustable socks) at Saints (black jerseys-gold pants-adjustable black socks)

     

    Unfortunately, it will end up looking like this:

     

    Week 1: Buccaneers (new white jerseys-white pants-adjustable black socks) at Saints (black jerseys-black pants-solid black socks)

    Week 4: Packers (standard road jerseys-pants-adjustable socks) at Saints (black jerseys-black pants-solid black socks)

    Week 10: 49ers (standard home jerseys-pants-adjustable socks) at Saints (all-white Color Rush uniforms, since we lost to the 49ers at home in the all-black last season and Payton is superstitious)

    I think the Saints will wear the white color rush against the Packers or the regular all white combo.  They wore the WCR against Dallas in week 4 last year and they will likely do it again.


  5. A few points about Virginia's new logo/unis/etc.

     

    1) I like the updated "V"/sabre shaped logo.  I don't understand the controversy of the logo, but not much different than the old one just modernized look.

     

    2) The cavalier secondary logo is good not great or spectacular.  I think they worked way too hard to make it look fantastic but in hindsight it may have overdid too much to have that "Wow" factor.

     

    3) The uniforms, OTOH, don't amaze me.  The numeric fonts I dislike and the "Virginia" and "Cavaliers" wording looks eerily similar to their state rival Virginia Tech.  Why UVA let Nike go that route is beyond me.  The basketball uniforms (with fonts, numerical and lettering) they had, was one of the best, if not the best in college hoops, why suddenly ruin it.  The football uniforms were good too but now it looks like that made it "too busy" with that update.

     

    Overall I give it a C.  The logos are good, but they took a step backward with the new unis they have.  We'll find out come fall if it changes, but for now I think its a fair grade.

    This Seahawks look truly is incredible

    If they replace the blue helmet with a silver one, it would be a knockout!!  Well what are they waiting for?!!


  7. I love the new Browns jerseys, they have to be in the Top 5 if not Top 3 uniforms in the NFL.  I wouldn't mind buying one of these in the near future (even though I am not a Browns fan).  I would love to see them do good on the football field for once.  Maybe the classic unis could put a spark to that team, it can't hurt.

    Seemed like there was a small rash of shortlived debacles/detours in the early 80s.   1984 Browns (real precursor to the current lame duck set!)   1979-83 Knicks.  1982-84 Nets. All preceded and followed by a long term/classic look.  Silver Pistons, 81-84 Pacers, 80-83 Cavs, Orange Cavs, and inaugural Blue Mavs were also very shortlived.

    And don't forget the mid 70s Spurs silver jerseys.  Even though we are talking about a different subject not relating to this.

    Wrong quote, man. I fricking hate the Falcons unis.

    Nah the Falcons unis aren’t ugly, their just boring.  If I want to cure my insomnia, I’ll just watch an old Falcons football game with their current set, works all the time.

    UPDATE: For the NFC WC game on  Sunday - My Vikes are bringing the Purple tops,  And I assume white pants.

     

    So for NO - I expect their all whites they seemed to love this season where the pants were plain with just hip logo - terrible practice combo look.😫

     

    Game will look a touch better than original slated matchup of white/purple Vikes vs. All Black Saints, but not much!

    Hopefully if the Saints wear their white tops, at least they would be smart to wear gold pants or black pants.  Maybe they will surprise us by wearing the all white color rush jerseys this weekend.  Anything but white/stripeless white.

    Panthers, with their current look, should only ever wear Black over Silver and White over White.  If they insist on wearing the Blue jerseys, they look best with the White pants.  They should burn the Black pants.

     

    If the Panthers insist on white pants, then switch to a white helmet and scrap silver altogether.  They have too many colors (black, blue, silver, and white) for their uni combos.

    Really thought Carolina would change over next year 

     

    I was thinking 2021.  However they should leave the current set alone, but scrap the white pants altogether and just have silver and black pants.  I also believe they should use the blue jersey as the primary home uni and have the black jersey as an alternate.  Otherwise, leave it untouched.

     

    I would love the Panthers use the silver pants with the white jersey to match the silver helmet. Surprised they have only done it just ONCE in their franchise history. Looks a whole lot better than the white/white combo with the silver helmet.  I'm all for it!!
