  1. Vikings. Like the Bears, almost no change to the basic home and road... all I added was a pair of white socks with stripes to kill the hated road leotard look. Also, a second pair of white pants with a stripe to match the white jersey, so that if the team wants to wear all-white on a few occasions, the stripes won't have to be mis-matched (it's not a deal breaker, but just something small I'd fix). The alt is a throwback to the home uniform from 1969, the Vikings 1st Super Bowl.
  2. Next the Bears. In the past, I've made some concepts that "fixed" the stripe inconsistencies, but I've come to realize those so-called inconsistencies are actually awesome, so I've made almost no changes on the home and road, just moving the GSH off the sleeve to the jersey front. I've decided against a throwback because the Bears basically wear their best throwback as their normal uniform every week, and I've never really liked any of the throwbacks they've tried. The orange alt is based on the road uni instead of the home uni, and has the added benefit of supplying them with an extra pair of white pants and a solid navy sock so that if they want to go all-white on the road once or twice a year, they will look a bit more cohesive. (Gray facemask added to annoy... you're welcome.)
  3. Let's start with Green Bay. A classic look, obviously, but still in need of a little polishing. The current collars are pretty dated IMO... a bit too busy. And I've never liked the road stripes with the extra white space. The sleeve stripes here are the same width home and road, both with 5 stripes total. Sock stripes make a comeback. The alt is a throwback to an early 50's uniform that was bright kelly green monochrome, so how can you pass it up?
  4. I decided to fiddle around with the 4 teams from the NFC North, IMO the best dressed division in the NFL. All are at the very least pretty good. I feel the Lions current uniforms are the weakest of the group, and even they are easily in the top half of the league. So, as far as their everyday looks go there isn't much to do. Just a few minor tweaks to take them from very very good to near-perfect. I do feel that the alts and/or color rush uniforms leave a bit to be desired, though, so I came up with all-new looks there. (In my perfect NFL, teams would be back to just one alt, whether it's a throwback, color rush, or just a simple jersey re-color.) Anyway, as always, comments, thoughts, complaints, complements, and brownie recipes are appreciated. Here we go...
  5. Sure BBTV has a point. It would just be much easier to agree with that point if he wasn't simultaneously wishing career ending agony on a complete stranger.
  6. Oh, I get that. If one of my teams ever became so dominate as to become universally hated, I'd love every second of it.
  7. From Jordan's retirement until 4 or 5 years ago, I hated the NBA.
  8. This isn't what's usually being discussed when someone puts the words "breaking" and "Theismann" in the same sentence.
  9. Yup. Only four sites confirmed by actual finds;
  10. Didn't someone recently say there were some good people on that side? Debunked, unfortunately... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kensington_Runestone
  11. Really? Huh. You and I have a very different definition of bummer.
  12. I love that this thread is staying in this forum. And that it has legs.
  13. How about these guys?
  14. Dignity is something we Viking fans know very little about.
  15. When you're dressing up your freakishly massive humans in Easter-aqua and marshmallow white and directing them to smash headlong into other freakishly massive humans, is "dignified" even still on the table?
  16. Yes, but then you could sign up actual dolphins as players.
  17. There's nothing beautiful about a world in which NFL teams look as disjointed and ridiculous as some second tier college program so desperate for attention you never know what they'll be wearing from one week to the next. No thanks.
  18. I think we're all trying.
  19. Man, you guys are being a tough crowd here. Ok, the guy tried a little too hard to be clever in his title... Yes, "hipster" is a dopey and meaningless term. Get past it already. The question was, I think, do you (in a general sense) prefer more modern or more traditional logo? Yes, obviously good logos of either type are better than bad logos of either type. No spit, Sherlock. Any other thoughts?
  20. I'm not sure Haskins was the one who brought it up first. At least that isn't how I remember hearing it.
