  1. Well, IMO, it isn't the combinations that make it a terrible uniform, the pointless parade of mix and match confusion just highlight how bad it is. The details make it awful in any possible combination. Taking a barely passable logo that was obviously meant to go on a white background, adding cluttered outlines, and putting it on a navy helmet was a bad decision. Going all in on the sword motif was a bad decision. Adding in a second shade of gray was a bad decision. Having those sword elements be double gray in some places, but gray and white on the helmet? The double bands on the pants? The glowing red Nike logos? The God awlful number font that needed adjustment after just one season? The light blue armpits? I dunno... It all seems pretty unsalvageable to me.
  2. I really don't see the Titans that often, so seeing all these pictures of the various options is pretty eye opening... They're all terrible. Trying to figure out the best combo is kind of a waste of time. That's an awful uniform in any combination.
  3. Minus going monochrome? When is that going to happen? If the Falcons uniforms are bearable minus going monochrome, then I guess they aren't bearable, huh?
  4. What is it about teams from Arizona and Maryland that makes people want to force all the state flag imagery onto the uniform? The sleeves on that particular Cardinals jersey we're unbelievably junky, and that was back when football sleeves had more space than they do now. I don't get why so many posters on here seem to be so in love with that look, but IMO it was too cluttered back then, and trying to bring it back today would be a disaster.
  5. Watching that Arkansas State / App State game... what are those two bars on Ark State's sleeves suppose to signify? Because, whatever they are, they aren't stripes.
  6. That's a legitimate question, as the uses in both cases are almost identical. I think the difference in my mind, is that if the Vikings added black to any other part of their uniform it would most definitely destroy it, while the Falcons adding gray pants (and making those pants the primary home and road look) would be a huge improvement. So maybe I'm less advocating they remove those extraneous colors, and instead add them elsewhere.
  7. NY Giants vs. Philadelphia Detroit vs. Atlanta Dallas vs. Washington Buffalo vs. NY Jets Carolina vs. New Orleans Green Bay vs. Houston Pittsburgh vs. Tennessee Cleveland vs. Cincinnati Seattle vs. Arizona San Francisco vs. New England Kansas City vs. Denver Jacksonville vs. LA Chargers Tampa Bay vs. Las Vegas Chicago vs. LA Rams
  8. I'm not saying a team should be able to lose the championship game and not have it matter. If someone gets taken down in that game by a three loss team, then obviously that means they weren't what we thought they were. But I just don't want to see that 3 loss team automatically get in just because of that game. Pick the next best team How about this? In an eight team playoff, you can have your five conference champs, unless a team with three or more losses wins it's championship. In those cases, that slot becomes an at large.
  9. In my opinion, the current playoffs set up is pretty close to perfect, and the best thing about it is there's no automatic bids based on conference championship. I want the best four teams, regardless of anything else. Maybe in the old days, when conferences were ten teams each, everyone played everyone, and there wasn't a championship game, you could say that the champ was always the best team. But now, with uneven divisions, and the opportunity for a 2 or 3 loss team to pull off an upset and steal a spot in the playoffs? No thanks. I'm sure an eight team playoff is coming. There's too much money involved, they're going to do it. And when they do, I'm also sure they will make the 5 conference champs automatically in. But it's sure going to suck the first time a 3 loss team from a crappy division gets to the championship game, plays the game of their lives, and takes up a slot a legitimate team should have.
  10. I hated the last Falcon uniform, and would never have believed I'd be saying this, but this new one is worse, at least in the ways they've insisted on wearing it. The old one was over designed and cluttered, but had a better helmet, better font, and a much better use of red. Clean up the sleeves, get some actual pants stripes, and the old look would've been salvageable. But the new uniforms get worse to me every time I see them. The helmet is gimmicky, and prominently features colors that don't show up anywhere else. The numbers are atrocious. Now that Tampa is out of the running, the Falcons new font is neck and neck with the Titans for the worst in the NFL. But the worst thing by far is their combination decisions. As I'm sure I've made annoyingly clear, I always hate monochrome dark uniforms, but the solid color matching socks bring it all to a new dismal level, and the all white is just as terrible to me as the all black. Wearing white pants and black socks with the black jersey, and black socks with the all white would get them out of the bottom five, but only barely. Right now it's the Rams, Titans, Cardinals, Bengals, and them.
  11. Actually, I don't think anyone really hates the Chiefs. At least not yet.
  12. There's not much dumber than a team that already wears navy blue deciding that they need a black alternate. See West Virginia to see how stupid this looks. This is exactly why the players do not need to be consulted about uniforms. What as endless supply of brain dead ideas. You know, if I need to get my bathroom redone, I'll hire a plumber to put in the toilet and sink, but I'm not gonna ask the guy for his opinion on what color I should paint the walls.
