McCarthy's NFL

Recommended Posts

In a vacuum, those Cardinals jerseys look like Ohio State jerseys.

For the Saints and other teams, I'd like to see collar wordmarks. That's a personal preference though.

May I ask why people keep on using Gold for the FALCONS??????????? Besides that, I love this for the Falcons. Simple yet so effective.

when the Falcons were born, they used the UGa Bulldogs black and Red and Ga Tech gold in their unis/ helmets.

Which template and software did you use?

I can't remember where I found the template, but I'm pretty sure it was from the concept boards.

I used Adobe illustrator.

Hey McCarthy, I tried PMing you but I think our inbox is full. I love your Pat Patriot update but I think it could go further, mind if I take that on?

Nice work on these. Jags look nice.

I think it would be a cool touch if you added some sideburns on the Pat Patriot logo, just as a reference to the current one with is nicknamed the Flying Elvis due to the sideburns.

I've already started (won't post without McCarthy's approval, but mine has chops.

Ah. Thanks for letting me know.

Don't put the Steelers logo on both sides of the helmet. That's a big part of their identity. Also, could you switch the Jags' away numbers from Teal to Black? They did that in the early 2000s and it looked excellent!

Fantastic series! Funnily enough, many of the changes you made are pretty much exactly what I would do. The only team that I would have done completely differently would be the Panthers. The rest are great.

Too be honest, and not to be a Debbie Downer, not really feeling this series much. It's apparent that you have a preference to old-school looks but too many of these teams look the same. Granted, some teams in reality have some over-the-top unis and need to tone it down but a little bit more variety rather than kinda going back to old designs would've been great.

Agree to disagree. Their numbers will remain teal.

Who looks the same?

One thing I was gonna say about the Chiefs and their helmet logo is that you could outline it in yellow and replace the black drop shadow with yellow. I used it on a concept once and it looked nice.

Great work. You have basically cleaned everything up and made each team like a professional football team. I can't say there is one that I don't like. Again, great work!!

I find it a bit odd that you took the logo off the Steelers' chest because it was too clunky, yet placed the SF logo on the 49ers' chest, even though it is basically the same as their helmet logo sans the circle.

I didn't take the logo off the Steelers' jersey because it's clunky, I didn't use a block font because the uniform is clunky enough without it making it look even more clunky.

The reason I didn't do that is because I think not having a yellow outline and the hard stop of the white against the red background of the helmet is much stronger. Why I made yellow the interior of the KC is that it looks better when yellow is framed by red, shows up on the helmet from a distance where a yellow dropshadow would get lost and from afar it would look like a red and white helmet, which is sort of the problem they have now. Plus I don't like using lighter colors as the base for a drop shadow because that's not how shadows work.

Everything I've done is a conscious choice.

NFC West

Arizona Cardinals

You're one of the NFL's oldest franchises. Stop dressing like an Arena League team in 2002.

I really like this entire series, it is well thought out and really improves a lot of looks. I love the Falcons set especially the helmet.

I think the Bengals are an improvement over their current set but I would rather have a simpler pattern on the pant stripe, that is just me though, I understand your reasoning behind the current pattern.

I think the best sets are the Browns, Seahawks, Panthers, Bills, Chiefs & Jets. I love the Brown's helmet logo you created (they should adopt that full time), I do feel like it is kind of awkward on the front of the jersey, I liked the suggestion someone had of moving it to the back over the nameplate but again that is a minor nitpick.

All in all this is one of the best looking NFL series on the boards.
