Agreed, but those are both uniforms (along with the 49ers '90's over-designed mistake) that some folks around here seem to love.

 

EDIT: let's just say that there's a legitimate reason that "some folks" like the 49ers best uniforms and to a lesser extent the Patriots' Apex set.  I've stated mine (at least on the 49ers topic) numerous times.

Like I said, that Pats uniform would have been basis for a good design with tweaks. Doing up the jersey like this, while keeping those amazing pants stripes, would have been much better:

I could go either way on the gray or red facemask. It's simple, but it "knows what it's about," and would look fine on modern templates. 

 

That was even better than the Apex set that followed.  Red facemask all day long. I guess I'm in the minority that thought their asymmetrical pants stripe was better than the one that preceded it.

The Patriots' big shoulder logo set was Starter from '95-98, then adidas in '99.

The Patriots have never looked good, maybe ok, but never good.

Oops.  I had just assumed that all the wacky shoulder uniforms (U of Min, Iowa, Cowboys, Patriots) were Apex.

Are the ravens wearing the first Nike NFL template?

They have been the last couple of seasons.  There are still a few holdovers on the old template.  

Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Baltimore and I believe Indianapolis

Albeit the dreaded monochrome look, I really like how Baltimore's purple pops. Would love to see them utilize the purple pants much more, regardless of this style or the gold-infused Color Rush pants.

It's like two famous Chris Farley sketches got spliced together.

Any chance all of this happened in a van down by the river?

The all grey look for the Seahawks surprised me in how good they looked. I think there’s a couple times I’ve criticized it, but it’s better than I remember. But I do agree with what I’ve said about the all navy uniform. That should be all navy, ideally, the should have a; White over Blue set, Blue over Blue set, and a Grey over Grey set.

I think the Hawks have three great looks: all blue, white over blue, and white over grey. Grey/grey is okay, but not the best.

 

These are the Hawks' worst looks:

Blue over white:

Blue over grey:

And, most unacceptable, grey over white 🤮

Here are all of the permutations!

Respectfully disagree.  I think they should throw away the Navy & White pants and wear Navy/Grey, White/Grey, and Grey/Grey as an alternate.  Like the Steelers, they just need one pant to have the best look, and it's Grey.

They'd be well-served to throw away their Black pants and stick to Black over Purple, Purple over Purple, and White over White.  White over Purple is only acceptable to wear if they pair with Black socks due to the Black helmet.

They are due for an update, albeit minor.  A new helmet stripe to match those pants and a slightly updated wordmark and number font (retaining Gold/Black/White)  would give them a top-tier look.

Blue over grey feels like it should be good for the Seahawks, but in practice, that's a crowded lane with the Cowboys, Lions, and Patriots all doing the same thing (and the Titans will probably dip their toes in by next year). It is the combination truest to the original Seahawks uniforms, but they looked too much like the Lions then too. It's pretty much gotta be monochrome blue for them, as awful as monochrome non-white usually is. Oh well, every team can't dress harmoniously, some teams have to do weird stuff, better that it's the post-merger teams than the Browns or Bills.

If tthey get silver pants, wouldn't they ditch one of their existing pant colors? I wonder which one would be dropped (white, Columbia, navy)?

Knowing how this uniform change was botched from day 1, I would say they would get rid of the Columbia blue.
