New York Jets unveil new uniforms

The helmet just feels incomplete or unfinished. The 90's logo would have been perfect. Adding the jet to the new wordmark or helmet logo would have helped.

Man that football on the logo looks dumb. It would've been better off with just the word Jets.

It just hit me this would have been the peferct look for the jaguars

 

The more I think about this just an underwhelming dated lookfor the jets, this was an opportunity to do something bold & timeless instead they pooped their pants.

I'm in the same boat. The football just looks ... odd? JETS would be fine, but I'd prefer the NY logo over anything else.

One of the things I remember noticing during the unveiling was when the Jets president mentioned new colours in the endzones. I'll be interested to see what, if anything, he meant by that.

 

Since the endzones are just pieces of turf that get taken out to switch between the Jets and Giants anyways, could there be a set of black endzones for when they wear the black jerseys?

The only thing I like is the addition of black (not the black jersey) and maybe the green lid. Besides that though I actually think these are a downgrade. And the logo on the helmet sucks bad.

I think the uniforms have grown on me.  My only real issue is the logo on the helmet.  I think a few simple options to rectify this are:

1. Get rid of the football.

2. Option 1: As the poster above shared, add the jet to the top of the logo (combining 80s/current)

2.A Option 2: Use an NY with a silver jet (similar to 80s logo) streaking across the NY (my preference)

 

The color of the helmet is beautiful.  Make this change and the NY on the chest instead of NY and you have a winner.

 

BTW . . . I think the all white uni and all black are pretty sweet.

Probably an unpopular opinion, but I’m hoping to see them wear black pants and green socks with the green jersey at least once this year.  Maybe same with the white jersey too.

 

I would like to see that as well. I think it would be better than black/black.

There's also nothing in there that wasn't pretty easy to guess. Fans clearly wanted lighter green and a return to the 80s look, so it was easy to connect the dots to black being involved.

 

Not saying this discredits anyone, just that I'm not sure it verifies anyone's creds either. 

That’s what makes this frustrating as heck: his info is *practically correct* in the sense that you could have “leaked” that the Jags were going back to an all black helmet a year ago and end up being proven “correct.” It isn’t substantial enough to pin him as some kind of NFL insider leak god or even to demonstrate that the information was actually worth knowing at the time, though it’s just enough for him to be able to run the damn bases when he gets back. *sigh* It’s just a much safer iteration of Dan Parker’s JUST LIKE OREGON!! tactics. 

 

I suppose I’m just in denial that someone with such sophomoric posting habits as his could be anywhere near the position to be able to know and leak precious, top secret information about NFL uniforms. I’d sooner expect him to be in the position to leak such info like that Tommy and Susie got to second base in an empty classroom while everyone else was at lunch. I can’t be alone here.

Apparently, it's Tommy and Susie that can't be left alone.

The more I see these the more they remind of of the jags rebrand before last. Very basic uniforms with a flashy helmet. I feel similarly about these as I did about those; The helmet is the best part. The entire design is really plain though

Is that the same Tommy that used to work on the docks?

 

But no, you're not alone. Especially after the 2018 NFL uniform releases and the constant "any new info?" and "not long now" posts.

Are we all forgetting that Teal was right on everything in the NBA? He leaked jackets that were true (albeit with a misspelling, lol). He leaked that the Bucks city jersey will be yellow before anyone else did, which was true. IIRC, he also told us about Earned uniforms (basically, that a fifth line exists and will only be given to teams who made the playoffs) first - which was true. He said the Barcelona away uniforms for 2020 will be yellow - unless FH and a bunch of other people are wrong too (he put the news out before any “trusted” soccer leaks site did) - true. Also, someone posted a picture a while back on the retail description of the green jersey. While the name given by the Jets is “Gotham Green”, the name given by the listing? Sport Green - the exact name Teal called.

 

If I had to guess, either he or his “source” (probably a friend) got a job in Nike sports retail/distribution (he’s only ever leaked Nike designs). It would explain how he’s not having direct details on design, but has colors relatively correct. There’s probably a “coming soon” where the picture of the product should be (ironically, to prevent employees from leaking things), but it still lists the colors to the side.

If any of this is true, his friend better keep his resume ready.

Teal says Panthers are changing colors, logos and uniforms in 2020. He’s been right with everything else so far.

Where did he say this? New colors could be major (though my guess is merely a slight hue change of the blue). 

 

I agree with a few others that the "Sport Green" thing is strong evidence that Teal at least has access to something. Likely placeholder text in some kind of Nike document, but that would be enough to confirm something like an upcoming color change.

1 - I had him on ignore long before this happened

 

2 - I don't go into the NBA thread since it doesn't mean anything to me

 

3 - So to answer your question, I can't forget what I don't know

 

The reason I put together the quotes that I did was to show what he said, and have people objectively look at it. I don't think he said anything that was out and out wrong, but also don't think he said anything that was 'proof' of insider information. I'll continue to ignore him as his 'won't be long now' far outweighs any good he would bring me by reading his posts.

I'm actually surprised they didn't put the full logo on the helmet, oversized similar to the Bucs. Seems like the Nike thing to do. Maybe that was the original plan and they realized it looked ridiculous and scrapped the football outline? Leaving just the wordmark and football left.

I personally know several people who moved to Union City simply because they found good rent there.

 

I am now going to use this post as an excuse to share a criminally underrated Blondie song (including a video in which Debbie Harry manages to make an orange jumpsuit look good) . . .

I'm not on here near as much as used to be, but damn Teal must've ruffled feathers in the past few years.
