Nike NFL "Color Rush" uniforms?

Recommended Posts

My two opinions on yesterday Jets-Bills game last night.

Jets look terrific in the kelly green unis. I think they should go back to those colors, as long as they don't make it a habit of going monochrome most of the time.

As far as the Bills is concerned, Arrrrgggghhh!! Red looks atrocious and should be ashamed for themselves for even considering wearing them. Burn them, rip them apart, give it away to a third world country, anything. I just don't like the red color on Buffalo period. That isn't like them, why they even agreed to do it is beyond my belief.

WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its one game people. Tighten up your panties and suck it up.

I think the Jags shade of gold is pretty cool and UNIQUE. Which is what this Thursday Night Color Rush is supposed to be about. Something you don't see for the other 19 games of the season.

Some of you really do need to settle down because your nerd-dom is really showing.

I seriously doubt the fact that we're uniform nerds is a galloping shock to...well...anyone.

Hey Sodboy (nice name btw), maybe it doesn't "suck" like you and some of the others here think they do.

And nice personal attack too. Troll this.

"Dilutes the brand"??? How? By having another color (that's probably a part of the color scheme to begin with) using the exact same uniform template and basically the same helmet? Most of these "new" jerseys and looks will be exactly like this.

Some of you will never like it because A. its different. B. its monochrome. C. the socks are the same color as the uniform and D. all of the above.

If you're questioning the value of branding and being able to instantly identify the teams:

Quote from Uni-Watch today:

"If you had a hard time adjusting to the Bills wearing red, you weren’t the only one. Buffalo coach Rex Ryan offered this quote after the game: “Hell, I look out there and my team’s in red. Blue, I might have had a chance. But I’m like, ‘Who are they? Oh shoot, that’s us.'” Nice job, NFL."

edit: looks like nike let the cat out of the bag http://www.nike.com/us/en_us/c/nfl/color-rush?ref=https%3A%2F%2Ft.co%2FEgOo9qPFFe#UwzKUJEeSu

The first thing that comes to mind is that the Jaguars are going to die of "epidermal suffocation."
I think of Titans vs. Rams every time I see this image. Just doesn't look like an alt for the Jaguars. Looks more like the Rams' old gold that had been muted into khaki before shelved.

And the Rams' victory in Super Bowl XXXIV is STILL one of the best championships in recent history. This image is pretty well cemented in just about every NFL fan's mind, even though the Rams hadn't yet migrated to the Navy-Gold scheme.

The Raiders play the Chargers Christmas eve. Could there be a surprise Color Rush game of the others are successful? All black vs all Light Blue? Yellow?

Nike can't put out green Eagles jerseys in time for a new season so what makes you think they will put out new pants in less than 3-4 weeks?

Who says they dont have them made already?

I was bummed to not see the SD/Oak on the Nike schedule. An all powder blue vs all black would look amazing.

Yes it would. Whoever chose Tennessee- Jacksonville is playing some sort of joke or just has the worst taste in the world.

So here is what we get next Thursday.

Based on the sneak peak trailer they showed as well the 4 combos we have seen here is my guess for the last two match-ups.

Outline on your numbers is reversed. Teal is the inner outline, black is the outer

based on everyone else, wouldnt it make sense for the Cowboys to wear white socks?

That Bucs uni is better than their regular. The top i mean, not the whole monotone set, even though it is decent as well.

Another reason why color on color matchups are bad.

The clash jersey system evolved out of black and white TVs and has never failed us. Color on color sometimes fails us (last night for example).

I don't expect light blue versus gold to be contrasting enough to look good.

The stars on the jerseys won't be that low on the shoulders

More like this:

And yes, I would expect white socks as well.

Well. With the Jets I think that they looked better in Kelly gree. Not sure how I feel about the metallic or whatever decals. With the Bills I like all of the elements just not all together in monochrome.

If that is the case the jersey would have to have a different seam pattern as the star is sitting on the seam between the white and blue.

I would think the same thing. It's going to look really strange to have the only silver on the uniform be the helmet color. Wish they had opted for monochrome silver-green just to ruffle everyone's feathers. I take that back, I wish Color Rush wasn't even a thing, but here we are.

Sounds like the early returns via social media are pretty much thumbs down on the whole thing. Although you could argue that all the e-chatter, negative or not, are just what the NikeFL were looking for.

Or that the NFL knows that short of putting the players out there in pink bunny and gimp costumes, people will watch regardless.

Then again, I'd probably pay good money to see that scenario

I actually preferred those Jets' unis to their normal.

Ditto. The whole thing, top to bottom. I loved the return to the Namath uniforms in 1998, but now they just look old. The kelly green made such a difference, that I'd prefer the Color Rush at their new set even if it required a Seahawks-esque monochrome home uniform.

The teaser image seems to confirm that.
