  1. Not to derail this discussion further into Bengals talk (well actually kinda to do exactly that, I guess), but I think what appeals about their Color Rush set is that they are such an effective conduit to see how good the Bengals could look if they just simplified their way-too-busy homes and roads. Obviously there are issues with them - lack of color being the major and obvious one - but they present an appealing template. Just add orange to the striping parts and they aren't far from great. Actually I guess that's kinda what the Patriots tried to do today.
  2. I didn't think I would, but I truly do miss their kinda crappy custom number font on these.
  3. Some of those combos look way too much like the Bills
  4. They got the socks right! This is about the best we could have hoped for.
  5. Everyone's fave guy Lukas (/s) just dropped what he says are mockups based on the Browns' design as of October 2018. Rounded numbers and brown pants with brown socks (with stripes), plus a complete trash Color Rush look
  6. It's navy blue, not black. Was navy blue with the Dolphins, too.
  7. Same color pants and socks is a scourge on this earth.
  8. The Nike era has been an unmitigated disaster.
  9. Am I crazy or does the orange trim look completely red in this video?
  10. Can't believe I would ever make this argument, but those pewter jerseys could have used the addition of black.
  11. I am smiling so much merely because the orange trim is still there.
  12. This would be a good time for a former lurker who has claimed to have seen the new uniforms to drop a tidbit that can be verified in the future that isn't about purple. Because I don't see any credibility remaining otherwise.
  13. I hate the idea of alternate helmets that aren't throwbacks and this will almost certainly lead to that, so I hate this.
  14. Allbright doesn't get real scoops. He's a phony insider. He just reads what's out there (probably on this forum) and regurgitates it as if it's his original reporting.
  15. It's an easy catch-all to describe this era of NFL uniforms and the similar traits they all share. Would you prefer I directly blame Shandon Melvin for his hand in overseeing the design of them?
  16. These seem slightly worse than just going back to exactly the Super Bowl-era uniforms, which shouldn't be surprising. Nike always finds a way to disappoint, even when the task is so simple. Should probably expect the Browns to slightly mess things up, too.
  17. People say this after every bad logo leaks (more on Twitter/Reddit than here, but apparently here too). Has there ever been a time a team or rogue fan deliberately planted a fake that wasn't an obvious and playful joke? It's ridiculous to suggest someone is out there manufacturing a fake hat with a fake logo embroidered on it for the purpose of... tricking some people for a few weeks until the real logo is unveiled?
  18. I like this merging eras idea way more than I thought I would.
  19. Gradients? Maybe the one way this logo could get even worse.
  20. I'm struggling to wrap my head around how this logo could be colored differently than what's been mocked up. Is it because there are 2 different shades of blue (presumably royal and navy)? Is it that the different segments of the horn are now different colors (perhaps as a way to combine the white and yellow horn eras)?
  21. He posted the article and, in typical Lukas fashion, there's nothing in there that we don't all already know.
  22. They need to just unveil the official logo with all these attempts at coloring it spreading around as if they are the real thing.
  23. Interesting thought. They might see this as a way to merge eras. I still prefer the one-color look by a lot, though. Honestly, the current throwback helmets didn't need a single change.
