DC in Da House w/o a Doubt

Best Possible Super Bowl 50 Uni Matchup

Recommended Posts

It just occurred to me on Sunday, but I think we're going to get a very good Super Bowl visually. This will be the first time we're getting an outdoor west coast Super Bowl in 13 years, when the Bucs beat the Raiders in San Diego. I always love seeing the highlights of the early Super Bowl games played in the bright sunlight, and it'll be a treat to get a half or so of the game played in the sun.

 

Also, we are going to get some good color in the endzones. Cardinal red/black or black/electric blue in the NFC, and hopefully orange/navy in the AFC (instead of the same old navy/red of the Patriots). It would be great if, for the 50th game, they'd bring back the classic helmet endzones, but I'd settle for them veering from the recent crappy dark minimalism and putting outlines on the wordmarks. I don't want to see plain black letters on a red background for the Cardinals or blue letters on black for the Panthers, and I don't want to see the endzone they gave the Broncos two years ago. They should use orange for the Broncos. Also, if the Pats make it, they should incorporate red into the letters, unlike the blandness of last season.

I hope the Broncos don't wear orange for SB50.

To be honest - and I think this'll be an unpopular opinion - I'd rather see this of all the Denver/Carolina possibilities:

For two reasons:

 

1) The Panthers' black uniforms are one of my favorite individual uniforms in the league, and would love to see it on the big stage.

2) The 90's kid in me would rather see it because, seeing as Denver didn't have an orange jersey in this set when I was a kid, this matchup would look nearly identical (save for Carolina's logo update) to a matchup these two would've had back then. What can I say, nostalgia's a strong force! ?

 

All that said, I'm expecting Denver in orange and Carolina in white, which will still look good I think.

With as much noise as there was 2 years ago after Denver lost in the orange jersey's (and being winless in orange in Super Bowl history) and the absolute slaughter that game was from start-to-finish, I think Denver may go with white.  Which would be great because I really don't want to see Denver's orange uniforms against Carolina's whites anymore this year.  Tired of both of them and at least the opposite would be nicer (since Carolina looks infintly better in black to begin with and being in the Bay Area, black and silver would be kinda ironic, huh?)

The uniform designs aren't the best, but I love the likely color matchup...White with some Carolina Blue and Black vs Orange with some Navy Blue and White.

I gotta go with finsup, I hope we see it, as Denver has been in orange for a few games, as with Carolina in white.

I don't think that Broncos choose white uniforms, but if they do this I hope Panthers will wear all black (except carolina blue socks) uniforms.

 

BTW I hope there will be orange endzone for Broncos not navy like two years ago.

I'm sort of hoping the NFL allows a color-on-color Superbowl aka orange vs blue

Think you mean orange vs black. No alternate jerseys allowed in postseason games.

No I really do mean blue. I know the no alternate rule serves a purpose, but it's stupid. I had thought the Broncos orange was their alternate unless I missed them swapping the blue and orange.

They swapped orange and blue a few seasons back.

 

So, I guess it's going to be Panthers vs. Broncos. While I kind of wanted the Cardinals to win, I think the Panthers will create a more aesthetically pleasing Super Bowl.

I think we're getting the most visually pleasing Super Bowl in a while, even if Broncs go white instead of orange.

I assume we'll get a black endzone with blue letters for the Panthers and a navy endzone with orange letters for the Broncos, but I hope for the inverse color scheme for each. It would make for a much brighter and more vibrant field.

It would be great to have the Broncos in orange and Panthers in all white.

They would  both play in the Superbowl wearing the combos that they won the conference titles in!

Belief in silly superstition never fails to amaze me. Yes, I'm sure the Broncos lost their last Super Bowl because they were wearing orange, and not because they were just completely outmatched...

Do you think we could see these from Carolina? Sure, their whites are lucky, but isn't the monochrome blacks a favorite of the players? 

 

 Plus, it's not a "BAD" look with the Broncos in their all-whites ...

I don't know if the players consider that set lucky, as they haven't worn it in two years. And yes, that's a terrible look, especially when paired with the Broncos road look, which itself is bad. It's good that the Panthers have the chance to wear not only their best uniform set, but probably the best rare set in football. I sure hope they don't mess it up by going with that crap.
