All that said, what do we think?

Every uniform in the league looks better than that design, but it’s kind of annoying that it talks all that high-tech talk and uniforms have just gotten tighter and, in many cases, more gimmicky.

Those oversized Bucs-logo horns are terrible, though. 

 

They only look like that because I couldn't find a clean flat picture of the actual horns and had to make do.

Good use of the Rams head in media amongst other team logos-

Yeah, definitely doesn't look out of place among the rest of the logos. The L@A logo on the other hand...

Some great nuggets here. 

 

"The only thing postponing skin-tight bodysuits is public acceptance." Vacuum-sealed uniforms?

A heads-up-display for the plays on visors would be kind of cool. It could be a simple or complex as you want it to be. Step-by-step instructions for receivers running their routes for the play called. Telemetry to help ballcarriers take the best angles based on the defenders' positioning. QBs could have the play showing which receivers are breaking open. Defenders could have similar telemetry on board to level the playing field, with similar feedback for the angles they are taking, and alerts for things like the ball is in the air, sacks, fumbles, interceptions, etc. This technology wouldn't have a place in the NFL or CFB, but would be interesting for a league like the XFL to try someday as a way of differentiating themselves.   

 

"In 3 strides, make a hard left cut at a 60 degree angle..."

If you’re a professional football player, and you practice four days a week, I’d hope you wouldn't need step by step instructions on how to run plays.

Oh I'd hope so, but maybe that's why they are in the XFL. 😂 Kidding. I've seen Philip Rivers screaming at his receivers enough to know it still happens. Maybe the vets wouldn't need it, but rookies could step in more quickly and contribute. Or it could simply be used as a training device in those practices to sharpen their routes for gamedays. It could also open up the potential for more complex route trees in general. Aside from that, they could also run an instant no-huddle offense. Just line up and immediately run the next play. 

 

I don't know, probably all dumb. But I just find it interesting to think of the possibilities. Augmented reality visors could be awesome. 🙂

You could actually see a detriment to using route goggles. We hear a lot about broken plays, and I'm assuming sticking to the directions in front of your face might inhibit your ability to improvise or respond to blown coverage.

What if you could hack them, and get some idiot receiver to run straight out of bounds or even backwards?  Or trick the QB into throwing right to a defender?

Now watch the tight end here, he's following the GPS, following the GPS, boom, he drives into a :censored:ing lake

If you miss your route would the audible be, "recalculating"?

There'd be a time lag too. By the time your brain hears and processes "In five yards cut right", your body has already run past the five yards.

The Patriots would be incredible at route goggle hacking. Fake routes. Blacked out goggles. Random porn videos playing. The whole thing.

Oh boy. Alright, I'll take the L on this one. 😅

 

Well I think there could be advantages of something like that pre-play, just not during the play. Shut it off like five seconds after QBs earpiece goes dead.

I’m personally excited for innovation in coaches berating their players. Now they won’t have to wait until they get to the sideline to be chewed out mercilessly for dropping a pass! The visor chyron can inform the player in the huddle that he’s a worthless piece of :censored: who is asking to be cut if he doesn’t get his act together.

 

I’m sure it could work the other way too, but that’s less interesting.

Oooh, and when a team makes a big play, it shows short animations like they do at the bowling alley:

I kind of like the bone over blue.  I hope they abandon the the bone over bone.

And all they had to do was match the helmet to the 73' to 99' jersey with the brighter colors....

Simple tweaks to the shoulder caps on the road make this a lot better.

 

As for the numbers it just seemed to me like the built in lines were looking for a color contrast to be consistent with the 'split horn' look.  I'm not sure how I feel about it, but I just wanted to see what it would look like.
