NFL 2020 Changes

I could see them trying to mix it.  I guess Kyler Murray mentioned the state flags...I think those were always well liked.  I would not be surprised.


I'd guess a nod to the old white uniforms with the red one adapting to that (i.e., black trim on the red one).  A little more basic, but not like the old red one. Maybe just red/white jersey with black outline on the numbers and the AZ flag on the sleeve with the number on the shoulders? 

 

Unpopular opinion (?): I never liked the flag.  But I liked pretty much everything else about the early AZ Cards uniforms.

Off-the-wall prediction:

 

The Cardinals helmet will have a hand-painted Arizona Flag, much like University of Maryland does with the state flag

I'm still a little disappointed that the striped white socks that were promised when they first unveiled the uniforms never materialized.

I hated rebook so much back when they did the NFL and NHL.  All they came up with was goofy uniforms for everyone they touched.  Angled stripes on the Bills was unnecessary, the 2009 49er rebrand was goofy, the collars where goofy just like the early toilet seat NIKE collars were also goofy.  Rebook had no business designing uniforms. All we need now is a fix for the Arizona Cardinals.

As well as Cincinnati.  I think those are the only two holdovers the Reebok deal.

Fwiw something may be afoot with the Cardinals as Kyler Murray has commented that he dislikes their outdated uniforms.

Well Kyler, can I interest you in a slightly used simplistic yet modern design that i'm sure we will be dumping from  jacksonville after 2022?😂

Y’know... How has Arizona gone this long without doing a throwback? It’s been so easy for them to do it considering they’ve always had a white helmet, much like Miami, but yet they haven’t touched their pre-2005 uniforms

I wouldn't be opposed to something completely new. None of Arizona's previous looks look that great to me. I really like this idea that @mcrosby shared a few days ago. Not a fan of the copper gradient, but the maroon, sand, and copper is very fitting for an Arizona team.

I never noticed it in the initial post, but I’ve always been a fan of numbers on the pants. Especially in baseball, and clearly it can be tastefully done on football pants as well.

The odd thing is that it WAS in the style guide until 2013 I believe.  IF it wasn't the uniforms themselves, then it was definitely the helmets.  

@TruColor, any idea if this was true or not?

I'm gonna say it.

 

I much prefer the busy uniforms of the 2000s, with piping, side panels, yokes, and all, over a lot of the "too simple" uniforms. I'd rather there be too much than not enough, like the current Jaguars.

I was just on my way over to this thread to sing the praises of @mcrosby's Arizona Cardinals concept.

As I said over in the Concepts section, I think this retooling of the Cardinals' brand is absolutely phenomenal.

The makeover checks all the boxes. It retains the team nickname that has adorned the franchise for 99 of its 100 seasons in the NFL, while adopting a species of its namesake mascot that fits the market which the team has called home for the last 32 years. It dares to be bold, yet manages to feel timeless. Perhaps most impressive to me - someone who normally looks askance at the necessity of alternate uniforms - it includes a third set that is so striking and perfect for the market, I would buy the jersey in an instant.      

To my mind, this is - hands down - the best Arizona Cardinals concept I've ever seen.

Nah, if you want to change the color scheme, just add the gray of Cardinalis sinuatus, the desert cardinal.

Nike would love that.  :lol:

 

Besides, their logo already has the yellow beak.  He's halfway there already.

I loved this set. The red shirt would need a little something, but the helmet, pant stripe, and color balance are all A+ to me:

Personally I think it looks awful, the craftsmanship is great but the gradients, use of grey and copper, the super busy alternate, none of it works for the Cardinals. Recolor the logo to what it is now and I think it's a phenomenal update but the uniforms are a hard pass for me. 

 

The Cardinals need to bring back the St. Louis set, the 70s Cardinals in particular. That's a gorgeous uniform that's could be updated beautifully.

The Cardinals being the oldest football franchise should wear a classic uniform that reflects it. The pre-Reebok set fit that perfectly. It’s time to bring it back.

What the Cardinals need to do is use this throwback design posted by jimmynutini.com (not sure of his CCSLC username):

Use the updated Cardinal bird of course. Keep the gray facemask. Have white socks with matching the stripes. For the red jersey, use a similar stripe scheme, no flag, and have a black outline for the white numbers. 

 

No need to change the Cardinal logo, especially not to the gray "Desert Cardinal".

I'm interpreting it as a way to represent metallic copper, not a gradient.  I dig it and Pyrrhuloxia.

I see it in a 2009 one I have for them, but it wasnt in the 2012, so maybe went away with the Nike switchover?

I like the middle one best, but as appealing as a gray cardinal sounds...it doesn’t beat the contrast of a red cardinal on a white helmet. 

 

Keep the gray mask.
