NFL Changes 2015

Recommended Posts

Have we seen the Dolphins new alts yet? I was at Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise tonight and an employee at Sportville put up a single aqua Tannehill youth jersey with the new nike template but old school Dolphins striping and numbers in the same rack as the regular ones. I knew she must had made a mistake so I asked her if it was the new alt but she seemed unaware and told me it was a vintage jersey and she put it back up after I showed her. I must say it looked pretty awesome.

As far as I know they haven't been unveiled yet. That's really interesting that some stores have them already. You should try to get a picture if you can.

Oh man.

I've always been very happy with the Dolphins current unis and I still am, but that is so beautiful.

I can't wait to see what they look like in game with the NFL style sleeves.

I'm probably going to have to fork out for one of those

Right, these "throwbacks" may look nice, but when players actually wear them, you might get 3 full stripes. . . maybe.

I disagree...

These are obviously more crowded than they used to be back in the 80's and before, but they are still all undeniably recognizable as stripe patterns on football jerseys. For any team interested in holding on to their traditional look, it's still preferable to dumping the idea completely.

Of all the teams still wearing semi-traditional sleeve stripes, the only two teams that do a poor job IMO are the Steelers (who refuse to shrink theirs at all, and end up cutting off the bottoms on some jerseys) and the 49ers (with that silly slant).

But see how on the Steelers jersey, some players don't have the full set of stripes? That's how it could look on the Dolphins, especially since they are similar striping patterns.

No, they'll end up looking like the Browns from the last couple years, shown on Johnny Football above, but with the small aqua stroke between the stripes. As someone mentioned above, the Steelers have refused to shrink their stripes to fit on the Nike sleeve caps for some reason.

Sigh. This is exactly why the Dolphins should've just went the throwback route to begin with. Their current look is so good incredibly lifeless compared to anything they had before that they're ALREADY busting out a throwback.

Just fix the mistake already, Dolphins. Go back to the classic look.

.....

Lifeless? I like these throwbacks, but if anything, the throwbacks are more "lifeless" than their current identity.

Lifeless is a pretty good description of the current Dolphins uniform. From the lack of orange, to the bland corporate-style logo, to the brighter aqua (which in theory should have been nice, but in practice just looks faded and washed out) it does look like someone systematically took the old uniform and drained the life out of them.

Funny, that's actually what I like about them (except for the lack of orange). The aqua actually looks aqua now instead of teal and the blandness of the logo has never bothered me to begin with.

For the most part all of those look horrible with today's jersey style (except for the QB cut with the longer sleeves). Sadly, this is how the Dolphins alternate will look.

So this makes me wonder if next seasons Packer throwback is already floating around in stores somewhere even though there has been no unveil yet.

I disagree. These all look fine, and I can't wait to see the Dolphins looking like the Dolphins again.

To each his own I guess. To me, they all look like football jerseys... a little more crowded than ideal, maybe, but it's a look that some teams will never abandon and others will keep returning to.

Certainly better than this...

Which look like teams trying way too hard to reinvent something that wasn't broken. And, unlike sleeve stripes, these are looks that will most likely seem as dated as parachute pants and a few years.

I know I am in the minority, but I'd rather see them roll out an orange jersey once a year.

Dated? If that theory was actually true, then the Denver Broncos would have abandoned their uniforms a decade ago. That could be said for the Titans, too.

As for the Seahawks, their current uniforms are the best they have ever had.

I didn't think there was much to criticize here

The Limited and Game jerseys are probably beautiful. The only thing being criticized is that the pro-cut version that will be on the field will look crowded like every other striped team in today's jersey styles. Some like this look while others don't.

This with the new shade of aqua (and not changing the logo) would have been perfect new uniforms for them.

The Broncos are terribly dated. It's way past time for those uniforms to go. Same argument could be made for the Titans, especially the stripe thingys on the helmet.

The tapered stripe look is so incredibly dated. That should have been left in the 90s.

The Broncos' look is dated. Their inability to recognize that fact doesn't change it.

Let's not leave the Ravens out of this then

The Ravens could take the tapered stripes/spikes off of their helmets tomorrow and it would be almost impossible to notice. The purple is so close to black that they're practically invisible most of the time.
