  1. Nope. I think the Lions all grey looks great. I'd put a blue stripe down the pants but it still looks good and fresh. The redesign as a whole is outstanding. They join Miami, Minnesota, and Seattle as very well done redesigns imo.
  2. There wasn't a problem reading the numbers Thursday. The orange popped just fine. It's why some read the jerseys as black.
  3. The new Brown isn't really that dark. Its lighter than the previous Brown. How it looked the other night was mostly the lighting.
  4. Actually, I was surprised how good the new orange looked last night. On print it looked safety cone-ish, but in HD, at night, with the matte-ish finish, it looked good. I was waiting to see the unis on the field before I made up my mind, and I think these look right. Besides the pant word stripe, these uniforms, at least the white on white, have a very simple, straightforward look to them. Comparing to other recent redesigns, these are much more Dolphins or Vikings, then Jaguars or Buccaneers. The shoulder stripes on these look especially better than the old ones, imo. It gives them a harder, fiercer look. The drop shadow numbers are barely noticeable on TV. I could take or leave the Browns on the pants. At least from the standard wide TV view, it appears like a broken brown stripe down the leg, like I figured it would.

    I like the mane too on this one, but not on top of the head. This look here.. ..with more of the below mane top.. ..I think would look the best. A nice, regal look up top to go along with the more natural mane you made on the bottom.
  7. I think the shoulder design arrangement on the Seahawks also mimics the leg pattern. At least that's how I read it. Initially I didn't know what was going on with the Seahawks uniforms, but once seeing them on the field, I thought they looked great. I recall feeling the same about the Broncos in 97'. My top 5. 1. Seahawks 2. Cowboys thanksgiving alternates 3. Dolphins white on white 4. Broncos blue monochrome 5. Chargers powder blues * 6. Early era throwbacks, including the Steelers' bumble bee, the Broncos' mud circus, Eagles' ice cream and Packers' soda pop. My bottom 5. 1. Chiefs 2. Panthers 3. Bucs 4. Bengals 5. Falcons
  8. It's baffling to me that so many like the Raiders uniforms. There's nothing there. It's just black and grey and numbers. Nothing there to dislike but what's there to like either? I guess there's just a lot of fans of the color black.
  9. I would go as far as saying the Vikings are the only acceptable redesign. Does no one here like the Seahawks uniforms? Just for my own curiosity, what are your/anyone on here's, top 5 NFL uniforms then?
  10. Just for fun. My two brown/brown concepts vs the actual. I'm still a little shocked that I don't hate the new uniforms. *insert joke.* They ended up better than I'd anticipated, even from the leaks. I'm actually fairly impressed. I was absolutely expecting another Bucs look. I'll still reserve final judgement until I actually see them on the field. The only primary things I don't like are the traffic cone orange primary color and the drop shadow. Initially I thought the jersey wordmark was too big but I don't think it looks right in the fixed smaller versions posted by Bucksfan. As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I don't mind and actually like the wordmark on the pants. I was going for something similarly modern with the front stripe on the pants. They're initially a little garish, a bit of attention whoring, but the name is the logo. And I imagine from a distance it reads more like a broken stripe of brown or orange. Especially so when it's on the move instead of static as it's presented here.
  11. Nope. It's been pointed out that we have many artists and graphic designers here who see the value in tradition. Being a "visual artist" isn't the reason you like these.And no, not everyone here is "graphic oriented." I haven't taken an art class since high school and every single concept I've made has been done in MS Paint. The whole mentality just comes off as smug. If you like the new look, cool. All the power to you. It's not because you're an artist though. Not only has the premise been proven false but the premise itself reeks of an undeserved sense of superiority. "No wonder the rabble doesn't like it. They aren't artistic like I am." Fair enough. I'm not really familiar with these boards enough to know who's all here and it's presumptuous of me speculate. So I can't speak for anyone else, but for me, I'm much more about capturing a good feel in a look than having things appropriately spaced, colored and aligned. I absolutely think that's why I dig the pants where the majority here despises them. Sure, there's more to it, such as cultural background, age, so forth, but in my short time lurking and posting here, I've seen plenty a design ripped apart for not being arranged accordingly by the numbers. Where it seems like most think the pants are the anchor, I think they're just different and bold enough to elevate the whole thing into something really unique for a pro uniform and appropriate for the only NFL squad without a true logo.
  12. The pants are my favorite part. Browns don't have a logo so instead used their wordmark. I'm fine with that. It's interesting; I assume most in here are graphic oriented. I'm a visual artist, mostly paint, but often other mediums. I don't know if that's the difference or not, but I like seeing them do something different.
