NFL long-sleeved jersey concepts, Cardinals and Broncos added

Recommended Posts

For those of you that missed this brilliant piece of news Rutgers is going to be wearing long-sleeved throwback jerseys this year.

Needless to say, it's a bit surprising. When the news broke in the 2019 CFB thread, I immediately started thinking how great (although completely unlikely) it would be if this idea was to catch on.  In a case of like minds thinking alike @BrandMooreArt mentioned that it would be nice to see the NFL go long-sleeved for cold weather games. Easily a better idea than color rush.

 

So, I got right on it.  Here are some long-sleeved NFL concepts. I decided it would be a little to obvious just to go straight old school, so I'm trying to mix in a few modern looks too. Thoughts, complaints, ideas, and brownie recipes appreciated.

That Seahawks template really doesn’t work that well... yikes.

 

The others look pretty fantastic though! Especially Minnesota!

10/10 for the Vikes. I totally would buy one of those...

I wanted to see if you could do an obvious modern look on the long sleeves.  I knew I was pushing it.

I wonder how a throwback or fauxback would work in its place?

Will long sleeves catch on? Sure they look great, especially the concepts you made, but really it depends on how it feels to the players. Will they be comfortable? Will that extra fabric get in the way of their footballing? That could be the difference between it being a success and it going the way of pullovers and Cooperalls.

I actually don’t hate the Seahawks sleeves. I think it works fine, especially considering how bad their jersey template is.

I'm with @Chromatic, I actually like the sleeves on the Seahawks. Reminds me of the Washington Capitals current set. As for the rest, I like what I see. Could be interesting to experiment a little more with the rest of the teams.

perfect. you get to move those decorations (stripes) back to the place they were originally designed for, and even on a modern design like Seattle, it still works and even recalls some pre-war design like Philly and NY Giants i think? works wonderfully

I think with the Seahawks, you almost have to concede doing anything with the longer sleeves and just go solid color the rest of the way down. But wow, I'd love to see the Bears and Packers in long sleeves in winter again, that'd look great. Vikings, too, if they ever had a reason again. They should have stayed at the U forever.

I think the Seahawks stripes could meet in the middle as a single sleeve stripe below the little triangle portion

Can’t wait to see what you do with the Bengals.

Remove the black undersleeve on the cards, otherwise they might be your best look! Denver also looks good although it reminds me off the Jets
