Was hideous when Texas Tech did it. Will likely still be hideous now.

Literally my least favorite college football uniform in history and we copied it fml

Regarding the helmets, I came across this posted on a fan forum. We know to take message boards (ours included) with a few grains of salt, but thought it was worth sharing since we are still in the conjecture stage. This may put a damper on those hoping for red helmets. 

If it's truly a matte black helmet, it would be a huge step in the wrong direction. Following trends that are in the "Laggard" phase of the adoption cycle is not a good look for an established NFL franchise. Surely the matte finish is being confused with satin here. Also, oversized silver logos? Chrome facemasks? If there is any truth to this, it sounds like it would be a rather polarizing set for us to discuss later this spring. :)

Wow. So I guess this info was actually real. Who would've thought?

It's like the Falcons decided to take the worst of 90s design and combine it with the worst of modern font design and minimalism to make these.

 

That's dead on. 

 

It's like someone tried to recreate the same process that gave us the Broncos and yet somehow the experiment went horribly awry. Like how Abomination was created from an attempt to replicate the Hulk.

So Tampa dropped their oversized logo and chrome facemask combo into the Nike trash can and Atlanta picked them right out. Great. 

That logo isn't much bigger than the old helmet... Atlanta-Falcons-2016-Schedule-696x418.jp

This set is gonna be worse than the browns set, than the jags set, than the set they're replacing and all the 2000's pipping looks. It doesn't matter if it's just the red uniform, one bad apple ruins the bunch.

The gradient doesn’t encompass the whole set though. It’s just an unfortunate misstep in the design process of an otherwise decent minimization of its predecessor.

Why do I feel like this is an upgrade?? I actually really like the White and Black version. The red gradient one though is horrendous 

I’ll wait for the full reveal but I kinda agree with you.  I’m intrigued by the red gradient jersey but skeptical about it too.

Lol.. Copied? That's over the top. Please see the entire set first, with their designated combinations. I personally think the black over white is the default Home, and it definitely is an upgrade. We're in the 2020s now, everyone can't just revert back to their 60s uniforms.

The rest of the set still includes, under arm stripes, a downgrade of a font, dropshadows, and an oversized helmet decal with apparently a chrome facemask.

These were seen on the Dirty Bird Nation Facebook group.

 

Helmet has a HUGE falcon with chrome face mask. Red jersey has a gradient to black on the bottom. Looks like there are only black and white pants options, maybe there’s a red? Helmet is still black, but looks matte instead of glossy.

So we finally get rid of the Bucs digital clock numerals and the Falcons give us these? I guess it's a net positive but clean, regular block numerals without drop/side shadows would have been SO much better.

All the Falcons had to do was modernize the throwback and have the color rush as the alt. Black red white and maybe grey pants as options. How did they go wrong?

We still can't see the front of the uniforms? What are the odds of a giant 'ATL' above the numbers?

I would be far less offended by these new uniforms if they had contrasting socks. I mean, Id still be offended but just to a lesser degree. Geezus I hate that effing trend...

Also, I’m so tired of trendy helmet finishes. I thought the Falcons had a great helmet with the classic glossy finish and now it looks like they’ve jumped on the satin train. At least this experiment has a shelf life and we’ll see something different in 5 years.

If they were under arm stripes, they’d be protruding from the arm pit. Not from the waist.

 

I’ll agree with the downgraded font. Should’ve kept the previous.

 

Helmet decal size isn’t all that ridiculous 

 

I’d be willing to say the face mask is silver, not chrome.

It's the only place besides the logos that you'll find silver.

I personally think it's chrome. Zooming in on the helmet on the table shows that the decal is, at the very least, a very reflective silver around the outline. Willing to bet that the face mask is reflective like that.

Yeah, I'm not sure why everyone thinks that decal is so big. The facemask isn't chrome,as you pointed out, it's closer to a glossy silver, not the shiny chrome people want it to be. The numbers aren't that bad to me. They do look like the belong on a Titans jersey, but nonetheless, this isn't a bad set by any means. As long as they don't wear the gradient red jersey often, everything else is clean.
