NFL 2020 Changes

I don't think there's a great Falcons set anywhere along the line. The current set is...ugh, there was a name for bad mid-2000s NFL design that someone here coined and I never remember it, but it's that. They tried to look like the Raiders and it didn't work. The grey numbers on red weren't very good. The original set was about as good as it got and even that was so baldly an export of UGA's uniform that they had those desultory little gold stripes on the helmets to pat Georgia Tech fans on the head and tell them it was okay.

 

I could go for black pants with red or white socks but black over black is of course The Dreaded Tights Look that doesn't work for anyone but the Ravens.

Really? I think that every falcons set up until the current one is the best uniform in football. They really had the perfect look for decades.

No, you're right, I think the opposite of what I wrote.

Admiral, the term you’re looking for is PYP - piping, yikes, and panels.

PYP, that's it! I'm guessing you meant "yokes," but the 2005 Cardinals uniform was a big yikes, so it ends up working better.

With all the discussion going on, I made a quick concept for the Falcons. I'd love to hear you guys' thoughts on it.

 

Not 100% if i'm supposed to drop concepts in the middle of a thread, I'm not trying to threadjack, just had an idea I wanted to share. I can take it down if needed.

Yeah, I think something like that would be nice, though I think you have one set of pants too many.

 

A simple look with the current logo that maintains the option for a white shirt over black pants (and a red shirt in any combo) is fine by me.

You aren’t suppose to but it looks fine, I prefer the current logo though.

Never got why concepts as natural outgrowths of discussion would be discouraged. If everyone's brainstorming, what's wrong with drawing something up and throwing it in there?

My gripe against it is that this thread is purportedly about 2020 changes. A concept isn't a 2020 change, unless the poster is the designer of the new uni.

 

I've given up on this battle, though.

I'm with you.  But personally I don't mind if somebody posts a concept on the concept board and then links to it.  

 

But dropping full concepts into an unrelated thread?  Quickly becomes a realignment-level threadjack.

Back on topic, the Falcons' PYP desperately needs some TLC. Who will be the ones to take it there?

Maybe it's time to dump that "Ashes of Andre Rison's Mansion" Black helmet for a "Get There Before the AFL" Red one.

Have there been any other rumors or confirmation that the Falcons are actually changing? I’m an Atlanta fan who has been desperate for a change for the last 16 years. So far, this snippet from Teal is all I’ve seen.

 

I would be surprised to see an overhaul of the logo. I’d have expected that to accompany the opening of the new stadium, but we’re a few years past that now. Much of the stadium uses digital displays so it wouldn’t be too much of a cost to change things.

 

This is a concept I did a few years ago (hence the inaugural season logo for the stadium on the home set). This is the kind of color balance I’d hope for, as well as the blend of classic with modern touches (like the Vikings). I’m tired of the arena football look. You could interchange some of the pieces but still look traditional.

Nope.  Just hoping.

Correct if I am wrong on this but wasn't the stadium seats designed in a way to look like the logo

 

Either way, it’s an easy, if entirely unnecessary fix.

The 2003-present Falcons set just makes me think of dogfighting and 28-3. No thanks.

 

You must have a soft conscience

Or perhaps just a conscience at all. ;)

 

Or perhaps we should leave the personal comments out of it, and focus on the quality of the argument?
