Awful. Not Falcons-level bad but these are not good.

For me, I think I dislike the Rams more simply due to the frequency we'll see the worst part of the set. The single worst part of the Falcons set (the Alt) will only be used twice per year.  It's bad.  And in a vacuum it's worse than any set the Rams have.  But I think quantity over quality here with the Rams going to wear the Bone set 8 times (though full-bone will happen 5-6 times, is my guess) on the road makes it worse for me.  I don't in any way like the Falcons set...but I think the amount of times we're going to see this dirty gray mess on the field is going to trump the twice we'll see the gradient mess.  The Falcons can also drop the alt when they want.  The Rams get full-bone for five years.  I have a feeling Atlanta will stick with their home/road set for more than 5 years (maybe not many more than 5, but I think we'll see these longer) where as I'm fairly certain these will be a 5 years and dropped situation.

Well, the Falcons and Rams could have just made little minor updates to their old looks but the franchises' management let Nike try to reinvent the wheel for them.

 

What a shame.

Alrighty, so while not nearly as bad as what Nike has shown they are capable of rolling out these past 8 years (wow) these uniforms suck but they are not in the same class of suck as the Jags (1.0), Bucs, Browns, and Titans. I'd put these more in line with the Seahawks, specifically the homes. Decent idea, not overly offensive, but over-designed and I'm bored after looking at them for more than five minutes. The aways are more of the same suck as the Falcons, taking a good look and making changes for the sake of changes that end up making it look worse.  And that stupid chest patch looks like an NBA advertisement patch.

 

Solid "C" from me

WHY ARE THERE ONLY TV NUMBERS ON THIS JERSEY??

Conspiracy theory time: The Rams are infatuated with the gradient, we all realize that. By creating a set where gradient numbers are the best new thing about it, in 5 years they’ll be able to come back and make changes to everything else while keeping the gradient elements. Everyone will say “thank god the bone color, stupid striping, and weird tag are gone!” and say nothing about a gradient which in most cases would be chastised.

I love the home with yellow pants. Excellent look. I love the helmet, it's still a yellow ram horn on a blue helmet, it looks like the Rams. Love the number font, the gradient and the subtle detailing really works. Love the shoulder striping. I think the design really works as a whole. 

 

The away jersey is a bit of a missed opportunity. What's going on with the sleeve stripe? Why have white on bone? Why does is the TV number font differ so much from the body numbers? Doesn't work at all for me. Awful.

I'm glad the NBA style championship tag on the back of the neckline is there to remind me of how nice the Rams looked when they won their Super Bowl.

hey if you’re a fan and you like them, then that’s great. You’re the target audience, so your opinion matters a lot to them. 
 

from a distance, the blue jersey really isn’t that bad. It’s close to being good. I’d have to see the rest of the numbers, specify what a lineman jersey would look like (57 for example)

Funny you should mention that... The Athletic has a piece on the design and they specifically cited Andrew Whitworth playing a role in making sure that the uniforms worked for the big guys.

Theres nothing wrong going out of the box.

 

Despite being a traditionalist, I love the helmet, its the perfect mix between their history and an fresh start.

 

The home unis are fine. Numbers fonts? Why not, like em.

 

The white unis are a step in a risk zone. I'd wait to watch em on the field before judging, lets say they are strange at first sight.

 

Cheers!

Not gonna lie I really like the home set especially with the gold pants and love the helmet. The bone Jersey definitely needs work though, those aren't good. Still I feel like I can live with these they aren't anywhere as close to as bad as I imagined.

the biggest problem is the weird patches/stitching and that abomination of a design on the grey sleeves (numbers and "horn")....the rest can be forgiven until we get throwbacks again

I feel I could peel off those numbers and layer the bottom of my shoe for sole support.

In a vacuum, maybe not bad.. But the Rams could, would and should have just used these (obviously with the helmets royal instead of navy)

And called it a day because these are the best the rams have looked!

The home set is fine. The colors rock, and are the best part of this set BY FAR. The horn segment on the helmet is stupid, and the numbers are dumb, though. Tweak those a bit and you’ve got a winner. 
 

 

That road set, though? Wow. It’s the worst uniform set in the league by a MILE. What the hell were they thinking on that one? It almost reminds me of one of those Praise the Soldier Guys jerseys they always release in drab olive with the military style looking patches. Ill conceived and ugly as all hell. No way that thing lasts.
 

 

It’s really crazy to me how they got this so so SO wrong considering the timeline they had. If things were rushed and it turned out like this, that would at least make some sense because the whole thing looks rushed. But they had, like, FIVE FULL YEARS! That’s astonishing.

That font gives the Buc’s alarm clock numbers a run for their money in being completely terrible. 

 

Wow. Just wow. Not even surprised.

I could live with these if all the pants/socks combos contrasted.  I actually like the helmet.
