And all they needed to do was use a proper kelly green.

Agreed. I'd have loved a simpler helmet logo (NY?) but just a change of color to the existing would've been great.

Seems to me as though the only real problems with the prior set were the shade of green and the construction not doing their shoulder loops any favors.  But they decided they needed an overhaul for some reason.

Yeah I agree, big downgrade imo.

The more I see the great response that the Miami throwbacks are getting, I can't help but think the Jets will, once again, throwback to the Namath era look in 5 years. These new duds already look dated to me.

They had their turn two times over.

If they feel a need to go with a faux back design they should go with the NY Sack Exchange uniforms. And if they feel a need to include a black alternate, it should not include black pants.

Third times the charm.

I think the only shame with going back to the green helmets this time around is the one helmet rule. No chance of dusting off a proper Namath-era throwback once or twice a year. Granted, this does mean they can now do a proper sack exchange throwback now.

That's why the Jets have completely new uniforms.

The NFL was quick to get the pocket pro helmets out this offseason, and figured to post the Jets new lids as it shows off the drastic difference lighting can make on it. Obviously won't be an exact match to the real thing but worth a look.

 

 

I feel like those Pocket Pros aren't properly glossed. That one almost looks like it has a satin finish a la the Vikings'. Not that it looks bad at all.

Agreed.. the newer Jets helmets appear to be more similar to the previous Vikings helmets, and somewhat similar to the Redskins helmet.. it's a metallic flake paint, with very fine grained flakes, that may have a few different shades of flake colors, then likely multiple layers of high gloss clear coat to add that depth of color, ranging from bright kelly to nearly black

Not a fan of this new set, but I am curious what a black jersey/green pants/black socks combo might look like.

My iPad isn’t letting me link a pic, but the eagles wore that vs the 49ers a few years ago (before the 49er redesign). Found it on 247sports where they ranked that combo 6 on the greatest eagles uniforms

Obviously better than black over black (will I ever pass up an opportunity to rip on monochrome football uniforms?  Nope) but still not a good look.  The Jets would probably look at least a little better since they actually wear green instead of this vomit-inducing hue the Eagles continue to mistakenly believe is a viable choice.

I don’t know about this combo because the pants have no black. I think it might look weird having a black heavy top with green striping over green pants with white striping and no black. I don’t think it will look like a unified set.

 

I know some people have said the Jets look “high school” with the big New York on the front, but I think going black over green will look pretty “high school” because it will look like a green and white high school team who wanted a “black out” night, but could only afford the jerseys.

Just wear black socks too and I think it would make up for the lack of black in the pants. Though, a black outline on the uniforms' various stripes would help.

Somewhat like my youth football club. Needless to say I'm fond of that potential combo, but others might not be. Hope to see the Jets do it nonetheless.

Some would argue a simple black jersey only would be the proper way to do a blackout.. the monochrome all-black look is so tired and unnecessary at this point..
