  1. Just looking at the helmet from a design standpoint, I love it. But it’s just not Florida. I’m sure the uniforms as a whole will look good, but just because they look good, doesn’t mean it’s right. It’s the same reason teams like Nebraska, Stanford, Alabama, Texas, etc. don’t need an inverted version of their respective helmets. Just because it might look good, doesn’t mean it needs to be done. There isn’t anything wrong with the design, but the real issue is the history involved with it
  2. As a Broncos fan who’s grown up with the current uniforms, I’m undoubtedly biased, but I really don’t understand the hate. I get it if you don’t like them, and hoping for a return to a modern version of the classic set is something I can get behind as well, but to put the current uniforms on the level of Cincinnati, Arizona, and others of that era? Nah. Maybe side panels aren’t your thing, I get that, but at worst the uniforms are mid-tier. The number font is pretty good, the helmet is amazing, and they don’t force random piping (Arizona), weird mascot-inspired features (Cincinnati), or yokes (both of the previously mentioned) into places they shouldn’t be. The panels may not be your favorite design choice, but Denver hasn’t tried mixing non-matching panels (like white over blue) and the panels are actually fairly simple in terms of design. In all honesty, I’m fine keeping them as-is for the foreseeable future. But then again, this is all just my opinion and doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.
  3. Oh wow, is that really the only time they’ve done that? I knew it was a rare occurrence, but with the introduction of mixing and matching in recent years, I could’ve sworn they did it at least once either this season or last season. Honestly, if it was up to me, I’d drop the white pants and just roll with silver full time. Throw in one blackout game, and a couple white over black appearances (with blue socks of course) and that would be that. Silver works with all three jerseys and black is a good change of pace, white pants just aren’t needed.
  4. For the sake of debate, what about a hypothetical new Panthers set with a black helmet, electric blue jersey, and silver pants? Assuming it’s a well-designed uniform, I think I’d like to see that combo, but maybe it’s because silver is close enough to white. I’m having a tough time thinking of a situation it might look good with a non-silver element in place of white.
