    Can't believe nobody lists the Eagles on any of these lists.  After the inevitable Cardinals rebrand, the Eagles move to the top of the list IMO.

     

    Yeah, the Eagles are right up there, too, for me.  Although, like the Cowboys, it's mostly just a color issue.

    Saints just need to either switch back to the former old gold full-time and in all applications, or keep the shade the same and simply bring back the gold pants full-time. Or, y’know, put a stripe on the black pants. Or use sock stripes. 
     

    There are several ways the Aints could improve their look, but they don’t need an overhaul. 

     

    I don't know... What you just described sounds like an overhaul to me. Changing one of the main colors, adding pants they don't have? 

     

    What the Saints mostly need is a uniform attitude adjustment. Someone needs to be repeatedly beaten over the head until they understand what looks good and what doesn't. I'd volunteer to do the beating, but only if they pay me a bounty for any injuries I cause.


  3. The Texans are a weird case for me. There's nothing objectively wrong with their basic uniform (other than the moronic use of navy socks with the navy pants, and a truly ugly color rush set) and I was actually a somewhat big fan of their look when they first started, but somewhere along the line they lost me. They really are just a visual empty void. Just the very definition of a paint by numbers NFL uniform.

     

    I've been thinking they may be a team that could try out a silver/red/silver scheme. It's odd that that particular color combination is so iconic for the Ohio State University, but it really is almost ignored on every other football level.


  4. "Minor changes" could mean almost anything. But if true, it could be promising.

     

    If were talking minor changes, here are the four that are would work for me;

     

    1. Switch to the Color Rush numbers... single layer, white, traditional-ist block.

    2. Remove the side panels... an absolute non-negotiable must.

    3. Rework the top of the pants stripe to remove the white... without the jersey side panels, the top of the pants stripe doesn't make sense.

    4. Switch the "B" logo to the tiger head.

     

    This would still leave them with a bit of a cluttered uniform IMO, but would definitely clean up the most egregious parts, and take them from bottom five to middle of the pack.

    Well it's a little more nuanced than that. Here is a prioritized source of funds list for where the wealthy prefer to route their expenditures:

    • Taxpayer subsidies and other government incentives
    • Activities funded through a money losing side business/tax shelter to offset income
    • Expenses incurred while running a non-profit org
    • Subsidised government loans
    • Private low interest loans/lines of credit
    • Personal expenses that can be categorized as a business expense provided by the company that you own/run
    • Family trust
    • Personal Accounts/out of pocket

    The stripes on the jersey went from contained and streamlined to free-flowing while the pants saw the overall stripe essentially becomes a tiger stripe itself. Including being the first(?) to not reach the bottom of the pant leg. As well as being one of the teams in the Reebok era to include the paneling.

     

     

    Broncos.

    The browns orange is far too red. I didn’t think this until I saw them next to the chiefs red and saw how close they were to each other. They really need to go back to the old orange.

     

    The new orange was a major downgrade. The one big stumble of this redesign was keeping the sunburned orange. That, and not going back to the clearly superior gray facemask.


  8. The touchback rule on a fumble through the end zone is crazy. I get it, I guess... I mean I don't know what else it should be, but it's such a killer. Seems like the "penalty" is so extreme for such a simple mistake.
