NFL 2017 changes?

Recommended Posts

Wait... why do the Lions have a new logo and wordmark? Are they updating in 2017? Just removing the black?

That's a terrible wordmark. Hopefully that's just the work of an intern.

 

They should have just removed the silver outline all together. You don't need it.

Agreed. Stick to one or the other. Glad they did get rid of the black(presumably).

Since they have silver helmets (and presumably will be sticking with them - I can't imagine them in anything else), presumably the logo on the helmet will look outline-free.

 

This would be a similar change to what the Panthers did a few years ago, which was a huge improvement.

This is on the Lions website now. The rest of their social media pages have followed suit.

I guess the black is finally gone.

That's a downgrade from the current wordmark, which matches the current logo much better.

Assume new uniforms will be coming soon if they are ditching black

I think the Bengals helmets just need a bit of extra flavor.  Have some white in there, a bit of texture maybe.  Define the helmet as a tiger's fur.  Hell, take the Jags idea, just execute it better.

 

Matte black rear 1/3 of the helmet fades into matte orange with matte black stripes with white accents.  Could look cool.

 

Simplify the uniforms by going to a borderless, marginally stylized block numeral.  Retain wordmark.  

 

Something like this could work, too.  I think somebody around here made it.

I'm a Bengals' fan and I've always liked their current helmets.  I wish they'd simplify their uniforms and de-emphasize the stripes on the jerseys and pants (maybe go with something like Memphis has).  But I actually really like this design.  You'd have to go with really conservative uniforms though or else it would be overkill.  But this would allow something like the color rush uniform to make more sense.

Something tells me Memphis might wear this next year now.

I like the Lions ditching the black and I don't mind the new wordmark, it's not great but I hated their old one and the number font that mimicked it. That font ruined their jerseys for me.

 

 

Might just be the nostalgia talking but I wouldn't mind if they brought back this wordmark:

Unpopular opinion:

 

I'm going to miss the black. It was a nice update, and their most recent set was really good.

In general, I normally agree. But I think in this case the design actually works.

On another note, I know the Panthers just changed their helmet logo but I think the funky stripes on their helmets are dated. The rest of the uniform set are fine although I do wish they'd make up their mind about whether they want to incorporate silver or not.  I've always liked the look of silver helmets/pants or gold helmets/pants and the NFC South already has a black helmet team with the Falcons, but I've seen this car sticker around Charlotte a lot and I thought it would look good on a helmet

Hope they bring back the blue pants they wore in the Sanders era. Loved that white jersey, blue numbers and blue pants set

What percentage of people even notice the F in the Falcons' logo?

Maybe 10% I would think.

 

Outside of our community, probably no one.

Glad they ditched the black outline!  Hopefully this means no black on the helmet or jersey now.   Just Honolulu blue and silver please.

I think the Lions logo will still have a white outline.

I love this. It's by far my favorite wordmark of theirs.

 

EDIT: yo I figured it out, it's because it gently rips off the Chiefs

I always felt that this didn't fit with their identity. It gives off sort of a Texas/western vibe. I like(d?) their current word mark. This new one is horrible.

 

Removal of the black is great. It muddles things up. Return to Honolulu blue and silver across the board.
