  1. I've thought of that too... It does make the blue jersey seem even more plain than it is. But the idea that the home jersey would have sleeve numbers and the road jersey would have shoulder numbers just pokes at my OCD. I'm not sure why that specifically bugs me when other similar issues aren't a problem for me, but there you go.
  2. And finally the Eagles. I'm in the kelly green camp... that ugly midnight blue-ish green thing they seem to be so in love with isn't going anywhere, but it should. New font also. Simplified wing for the helmet... complete removal of all black. The throwback to the Vermeil/Jaworsky 70's uniform.
  3. Dallas is getting more work. I'm standardizing the colors. Dark royal blue and metallic blue-silver throughout. (Navy and silver is boring, and used in other places better IMO.) The Dark uniform gets a complete overhaul to match the home whites, and the throwback is similar to one worn in the past.
  4. I've brought up my issues with Washington's look before... I hate the yellow facemask, and I'm bugged by the mismatching stripes, so I'm attempting to clean that up. The throwback is to the Sonny Jurgensen 60's look;
  5. The Giants have one of my favorite uniforms, at least before they introduced those pointless white pants. I'm getting rid of those, adding some very small color elements onto the jerseys and pulling an interesting throwback from their distant past;
  6. So initially, this was just an NFC North thread... the idea being that those teams were in need of very little changes, so I would just do some minor clean up and add some new alts. In my perfect NFL, every team would go back to just a single alternative look, whether that alt was a throwback or not, and the "color rush" concept would just mercifully go away. I liked what I came up with and decided to expand it into the NFC East, a division that is also fairly nice. I found that, like the NFC North teams, New York and Washington would just need a bit of tweaking, while Dallas would need a little more, and Phillly more still. I may expand this to the rest of the NFL, although if I do, as I go along some teams are going to need more than just a slight tweak obviously. Concepts to follow...
  7. Yeah, the NFL really let the uniform nonsense out of the bag last year. Multiple alts, relaxed rules on when, where, and how often an alt can be worn, mixing color rush elements into non-color rush sets... we saw it all. And it sucked. Teams like the Panthers practically wore a different combination weekly, and none of them were the one uniform they should be wearing. It's only the horrific nightmare riot of the NBA that's keeping the NFL looking somewhat restrained by comparison. And some of you want to introduce multiple helmets into this unappealing soup? Insanity. The NFL gets boneheaded flak for being too controlling ("No Fun League!! ... I just thought that up!! Durr!") when in fact, when it comes to uniform policies, they need to go back to being much more controlling. They should go back to one alt, period, whether it's a throwback, color alt, or whatever, just one. And it should only be worn twice, never in the playoffs. I'd go further, and make each team designate a primary uniform combination... jersey, pants, and socks, that have to be worn together for at least 5 home games.
  8. Whoa, I forgot about this one. I picked this exact team for this exact reason.
  9. A couple of looks at the old Lions... like the new uniform, basically white-free.
  10. While I see the logic, the learning curve would be brutal.
  11. I've got a full circle story for this one. In the mid-70's, I was a little kid visiting the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the first time and saw a picture of the helmets for two new teams about to enter the NFL, the Seahawks and the Buccaneers. That Seattle helmet was just about the coolest thing I'd ever seen ... Great logo and amazing color scheme. Green and blue together? Seemed almost illegal. They instantly became my second team, made easier since they were initially an AFC team. Much later, when they switched to that sad blue get up, they lost something to me and became just another team. When they went full time monochrome, they started to become an annoyance to me, and when they switched to the current look (compounded by the fact that they seemed to be overstocked with chest pounding jackasses) I went to full-on hating them. It would be interesting to me to see if my feelings about that team would change if they went back to some version of their first look. Of course, they'll need to fire that gum chewing smarm bucket, too.
  12. After all the bitching and whining about how Durant going to the Warriors "broke the NBA" if Golden State won the championship with KD out it would be the funniest friggin thing ever.
  13. Who is the guy who spends all his time in the NFL Playoffs thread bitching about the Patriots? You have become the NBA version.
  14. Here's an idea... Ohio State does this on the back collar; So the Bears could embroider some simple lettering...
  15. Reading that article, it's pretty obvious he wants to do something stupid and ugly.
  16. Thanks for the feedback! The Bears' GSH being under the collar is something I'm not totally sold on either... I just know I've gotten tired of it in the middle of the sleeve stripe. I've gone back in forth on the Vikings' use of black. I think it works on the horn, maybe not as much on the facemask. I guess I'm not sure about matching a purple mask to that particular helmet finish. And, like I said, I thought about just dropping the dark gray from the Lions, but something about it made me want to try to save it. I dunno, maybe I thought just getting rid of it was taking the easy way out... does that make any sense?
  17. Light blue pants with navy blue numbers has been done...
  18. I never realized that thing actually says "winning tradition" on it. That feels... I dunno... kinda needy, or something.
