Falcons New Unis 2020

Recommended Posts

Going to wait until the 14th to make up my mind on the new threads.

 

I'm honestly ticked that the Falcons and AMB did such a good job of keeping these under lock and key to see some little twirps from midtown go and blow the surprise.

Browns:  Let’s put a giant CLEVELAND across the front of our jerseys!

 

Falcons:  DUDE, WE GOTTA DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT!


When your only company is the Browns and Jets, rethink everything.

It’s so Atlanta that this happened.

Didn’t that guy who saw the jerseys claim the Rams were the worst? How can something top this in horror?

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.

The Falcons have the potential to have one of the nicest uniforms in the NFL.  Instead of going for a great look, they once again crapped the sheets

 

Good:  Cleaned up the sleeves, removed the silly pants accents, red-letter nameplate.

 

Bad:  Chrome facemasks, gradients, horrible numbers and keeping the drop-shadow.

 

First the Rams and now the Falcons.  Gradients are evil and date the uniforms just like piping did.  

This was a waste of effort, IMHO.

I mean, Arthur Blank said the players had the most input

Because Arthur Blank would be dumb enough to take players’ input on design most seriously. I would never

listen to players about coaches (that’s how an interim head coach usually becomes head coach and most of the time fails miserably), and I would never take them seriously about uniform design. 
 

Typical Falcons.

I assume this is a minority opinion, but I don't hate the '03-'19 Falcons set.  Sure the piping wasn't great, but I don't find it awful.  I also feel like having it more than 15 years starts to put it in "identity" territory.

 

But what I find interesting about this leak is, what does this new set accomplish that the old doesn't?  Very similar logo.  Very similar helmet (matte now?).  Very similar font.  Very similar color balance.  (Not sure why they stopped wearing the black pants) Switched your piping for a Denver-esque piping.  Added a gradient for an alt (but now it looks like you won't go red over white).  Usually teams go "modern" to "classic" or vice versa, this seems like a "modern" to "modern" change ala Tenn.

 

Other than selling jerseys, it seems like a strange thing to do to a brand.  All that said... I don't really hate it haha.  I can even dig the gradient (sans yoga pants)

I think most of us are numb to that set now. And the red Jersey was certainly less in your face than the black one.

 

I think it was shocking at the time. Hard to say which was the worst of that era; Bills, Falcons or Bengals.

Bills, by a wide margin. Don’t forget the Vikings either.

Another leak, this time with the front which shows “ATL” in large letters across the upper chest. Definitely larger than your typical wordmark.

Even if the 3 letter ATL is oversized, it shouldn't look nearly as bad as the Cleveland wordmark.

The gradients and ATL definitely aren’t good, but the absolute WORST part is that new helmet. Oversized logo (that looks crooked now), matte black helmet, and a chrome/silver face mask? Woof. That’s easily the worst looking lid they’ve ever had. And now it shoehorns them into using a matte black helmet with the throwbacks, which is going to look just strange enough to be really annoying.

This NBA trend is way worse than a full name being featured. The Cleveland wordmark is definitely bad but this goddamn three letter gimmick is not even XFL level...

I think we found our new #32 Uniform. Since the Bucs changed at noon, the Titans had it 7 hours. Now it's in Atlanta.

 

If anybody needed a source of the Image, here's the tweet it came from.

 

 

Also, remember this. I wonder how bad the Rams uniform will be now... 😬

I still think the Titans are 31st leaving the 32nd spot wide open for the Rams... The Falcons are really bad but the Titans are a hell of a mess and I'm pretty confident the Rams will be absolutely horrible.

Whoa. Looks like I'm late to the party, didn't expect there to be any more news today after the Buccaneers reveal.

Speaking of the Buccaneers, this appears to be almost the exact opposite approach that they took. A non-hearkening back to the past, a slew of overdesigned yet underdesigned elements that reek of Nike meddling such as the weird sharp Jets-esque side piping, the matte helmet and chrome facemask, an ugly number font, random gradients, and other "innovative/cutting edge" nonsense.

Cincinnati still exists
