New York Jets unveil new uniforms

I'm a fan of that font.  It's custom, but still feels classic.  To anybody who doesn't care about these things it would just seem like a standard number, no different from a dozen other teams, but if you do care, it's one of a kind.  IMO, that's the best way to go... try a little subtlety.

Full sewn-on twill numbers on the practice jersey?  How common is that? (I don't know, that's why I'm asking.)

The more I look at these unis the more I believe what I always believed... they should have just went to Kelly Green for the uniforms they already had. These are OK but Kelly Greeen 1968 would have been better.

Only if they swapped over to green helmets. It think that light color helmets across the entire division was just not a good look.

Well, the 1994 throwbacks would've been fine. For Jet's fan sake, let's hope Sam Darnold doesn't have "Joe Ferguson Syndrome" ( For you youngsters, it's the reason the Bills went to red helmets because Joe Ferguson, the Bill's QB at the time threw so many interceptions and the AFC east had the Bills,Colts,Dolphins and Patriots in white helmets).

I can’t get over how awful those helmets are. Why do they look more black than green, it’s really bugging me

It’s essentially the Jaguars’ number set with a few modifications made to simplify it.

 

The 4 looks way too heavy and compact compared to the other numbers, though. That’s a shame.

The green helmets are fantastic.

 

They look black because 1) metallic paint and 2) photography and lighting issues.  In real life, they are very green.

I remember when the Jets changed to white helmets in 98, Weeb Ewbank was quoted as the switch could reduce he number of interceptions because the white helmet will contrast against the green turf, allowing for better play from the QBs.

 

It was also when Testaverde was the QB, who was colorblind and I vaguely remember that was partially a reason. 

 

There must be quotes from Weeb out there to find, although the second part about Testaverde was probably hearsay, as uniforms need to be designed way ahead. His colorblindness was also blamed for the slow start and high interception rate throughout his career, including the Bucs changing to white uniforms at home.

At a glance, they do look sort of reminiscent of the 80's uniform...

Literally any pair of football pants will look like that playing in 90 degree weather. Nike is selling pants, not miracles

They don't look bad. Just kind of boring. Really has Jacksonville (rebrand before last) vibes. Very plain

When these uniforms were unveiled I was underwhelmed, but I have to say these look surprisingly sharp on the field.
