I actually REALLY like black over white for the Ravens. That’s a perfect alternate combo for them. They probably could've busted them out against a different opponent (PIT/BAL just looks better as an overall matchup when the Ravens are in purple), but they still looked good on their own.

Please retire this look. Why did they do this? We almost never get navy over white anymore.

Exactly what I was about to post. The white and yellow really pops throughout on these.

The current Chargers look is awful, and navy on navy might be the worst combo they have.

But why does ownership seem to hate their best look? Plus with the titans downgrading their powder blue, the chargers should be all over it

That’s better, but it’s still worse than the straight throwbacks.

I can actually get on board with some of the modern flair of their current set (two blues, number font) if I have to, but the sleeve lightning stripe will NEVER measure up to the shoulder version used on the throwbacks..

Also, the lightning bolt should always be on a white background.. White pants and jersey should have no panels containing the bolts, just the bolts like the helmet

I agree with this, but it's shouldn't be worn more than twice per year. It gets old fast. Don't become the Seahawks or Titans.

Times Sports editorial: Save us from the Buccaneers’ hideous uniforms

 

By Times Staff Writer
Published: November 21, 2018

Updated: November 21, 2018 at 10:31 AM

 

The Buccaneers might be content with the way they look on the football field, but we are not. It’s time for a historic change. The alarm-clock digits on the Bucs' uniforms tell us so. Though the team doesn’t have plans for a redesign, it should reconsider immediately. The uniforms are not only an unflattering look on the players but also a stain on the Tampa Bay community.

 

When the team introduced new uniforms in 2014, it claimed they had been “energized” with richer and more vibrant colors. It called the look — which featured an angrier skull logo, a darker tone of pewter and reflective chrome embellishments — “revolutionary” and “technologically advanced.” The XFL knockoffs, however, have not invigorated the team and have come to symbolize the depths to which this moribund franchise has sunk. This toxic blend of bad football and an ugly visual identity has contributed to dismal merchandise sales nationwide. Fortunately for the Bucs, the NFL allows teams to make changes to their uniforms every five years. That means the Bucs soon can leave their costumes where they belong: in the smoldering ash of the 2018 season.

 

The first thing that needs to change is the names on the back of the jerseys. Get better ones.

 

The second thing: the numbers. No one looks at that typeface and thinks, “They remind me of historical Buccaneer blade carvings.” Instead, people make snooze button and “80085” calculator jokes.

 

As for the colors — red, orange, black, gray, pewter, white — there’s no need for that many. The color palette looks as if someone felt inspired after vacuuming Nana’s Persian rug. We recognize that Bucs are trying to balance the tastes of their older fans who were raised on orange and their newer fans who were raised on pewter. We recommend, however, that the team scales back its palette. Choose no more than four colors. Pay homage with red, orange and white, or push forward with red, pewter and white. Embrace one combination; don’t try to do both.

 

The beauty of the Packers', Bears' and Giants' uniforms is that they’re simple. They don’t need reflective chrome or blinking lights. They say Green Bay, Chicago and New York. The Bucs’ uniforms say identity crisis. That’s what happens when you “collaborate” and take a design-by-committee approach.

We don’t come to this conclusion lightly and recognize that others have learned to tolerate the terrible terribleness. We appreciate the Bucs’ effort to experiment and refresh a late-1990s design, but for the good of Tampa Bay, it is time to acknowledge defeat. To be sure, the team spent a lot of time, effort and money on its current look, but that’s no excuse for waiting to right a wrong. Consider the sensible changes teams in Florida have made recently. The Jaguars ditched their two-toned helmets. The Marlins ditched their apartment complex logo. Drive over the Howard Frankland bridge into St. Petersburg and watch the Rays. They’re proof that you don’t need to wear all the colors in the rainbow. (Just don’t trust their taste in typefaces. They stole theirs from a bag of Rold Gold pretzels.)

 

Fans have suffered enough. They deserve a better-looking product that is worthy of their hard-earned dollars. The Bucs should start by fixing their uniforms. In a lost season, that would be their biggest win.

I've been thinking the Bucs should consider reverting to orange as their primary color.  Orange/pewter, I think, has the potential for one hell of a look if done right.  And this is coming from a guy who usually hates pairing orange with metallic colors.

It's absurdly embarrassing for both Nike and the NFL that fans and media are clamoring for teams like the Browns, Jaguars, now Buccaneers, and soon Titans to change their awful uniforms the minute league rules allow it. What a disaster on all fronts.

What if they started off with their previous set, but swapping the red and orange?  So it'd be orange and pewter.  I'm more a fan of their previous red, but I get that there's almost no way they can redesign the uniform with red as the color and have it top what they won the Super Bowl in (despite being far inferior to the team they beat in the NFCCG thanks to a garbage-ass fat:censored: coach and a bitch-ass puking quarterback that is a walking, talking, steaming pile of crap.)

The Tennessee Titans need to bring back the white helmets.

 

The Buffalo Bills need to bring back the red helmets.
