  1. I loved the Jags first uniform at the time and it's still probably the best they've ever looked, but I don't know if I'd still be thinking that if they had been wearing it all these years. I think it's a bit too 90's to work just as it was today. I could see a slightly simplified version working.

     

    For me, the new logo is an upgrade (don't know if that's an unpopular opinion) and the current number font is awesome... my favorite of the new "block with a twist" fonts we're getting. Plus, my current design crush is single layer numbers, but I don't know if that'll last for me.

     

    I'd keep the current uniform as a jump off point, get rid of the black jerseys and pants, change the white jersey's spikey elements to teal, add some teal stripe/spike to the pants, and be done. 

     

    After some of the garbage we've gotten on the past decade "too simple" is not a criticism I'm ready to make.


  2. Although it's obviously true to say the Panthers have stuck with the same look since day one, it's hard for me to see them as a team that hasn't messed with their uniforms. The constant mixing and matching of all those stupid combinations ruins the overall aesthetic IMO. 

     

    Burn all the pants but gray and they good to go.

    Is #77 wearing his socks upside down? 

     

    That's not uncommon... What he's doing is cutting off the foot portion of the sock, and either wearing a specialty "no show" sock, or even going barefoot inside a skin tight shoe. He still has to wear the calf portion of the sock per NFL rules.

    Honestly, I view the 49ers as never actually having a CR Uniform. 

     

    They debuted after the CR doors shuttered and were unveiled as “throwbacks”

    But the fact that the 49ers consistently wear them with those stupid white socks means that they think of them as Color Rush uniforms.

     

    It's just the same with the Giants and Saints CRs.  The white socks screw up what would otherwise be nice throwbacks.

    Cowboys and Niners have two of the worst color rush uniforms, they'd be big downgrades from their current sets. 

     

    Agreed. The 49ers have one of the better primary uniforms in the league right now, and that Cowboy color rush wrongly uses navy instead of royal and had those dopey big stars on the sleeves.

    I think the gradient numbers could very well be retained long-term.

     

    Look at the Lakers dropshadow uniform numbers.

     

    If they had never had those but all of a sudden thrown them on, people would be shouting to the high heavens that they were gimmicky.

     

    The gradient numbers match the image you want to project as a Los Angeles market team, glitz.

     

    Actually, I think the gradient numbers will probably be the first thing to go. They might even be able to delete those ugly bastards before the five years are up, as there's some presidence for numbers changing outside the 5 year rule (ironically, the Rams did it themselves with their first navy/vegas gold jersey). 

     

    And the Lakers' drop shadows are a bad comparison... drop shadow numbers were on baseball uniforms in the 30's.

    The only concerning thing about it would be that both opposing teams had to wear their color jersey, implying that yellow wouldn’t provide enough contrast against white. I’m more than happy with color v color matchups, but I just wonder if it would work for the Rams as an alternative to WAH or if they would mostly wear it on the road.

     

     

     

    No, they didn't have to wear their color jersey. That was just how they did it for the 75th season. Usually, in the NFL the gold home jersey is worn against a road white and it looks fine. It would never work for a football team to try the Lakers' sub gold for white trick.  Road uniform are white.
