The Rams will win the Super Bowl in this combo. I’m calling it now. 😁

 

I made a similar prediction over on Twitter a while back. I’ll be ready for the ratio as well. 😝

And? The initial hate this look got when they rolled it out, and the hate they still get means there's no way this identity lives past 5 years, not even if a Super Bowl wins come out of it.

And how contrasting will the SB patch be and where will it go?

The NFC is the designated home team in the SB this year, though the Rams could choose their away unis to continue their new philosophy of intentionally being obtuse and doubling down on their terrible uniforms

I was watching RedZone a couple weeks ago when the rams went mono-bone. My wife, who would rather watch paint dry than watch football, looks at the TV and says "that has to be the most unflattering uniform I've ever seen." I chuckled.

I had a very similar experience in my household while watching that game. Funny.

 

I actually really like it when a sports brand can surprise me with a design choice. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the NHL Knights' use of a gold brocade pattern in their logo a few years back. The entire Seattle Kraken experiment was an unmitigated success, from logos to colors to uniform design, defying all expectations. It was genuinely surprising.

 

But I can't think of attempt at launching a uniform design trend to come out of Nike that I thought really worked. I'm speaking specifically to design rather than function. The Bucs' alarm clock numbers come to mind as another novelty that just didn't land. 

 

I'm all for being bold and attempting new things, and I'm certainly not the demographic to which they're attempting to appeal, but this embrace of bone/off-white/dirty should have been dismissed in the first brainstorming session. It's indiscriminately bad.

No one is saying they are getting to the super bowl this year. They probably will never get to the super bowl again with Goff as QB

There isn't a dominant team in the NFC. I would not be shocked if they made it to the SB this year with their defensive players.

Hate me all you want, but I’m starting to like this combo. Get rid of the gradient numbers and I think I’m there. Blue over blue and anything with bone is still hot garbage tho

Agreed. Only need the gold pants. On the road jersey, make it white first, then use the same shoulder horn but in blue with a gold sleeve cap. Similar to the old look

New Orleans would like to talk to you...

 

(Green Bay...maybe?)

I would definitely consider GB pretty dominant right now. 

Also, I know they have been sputtering, but I still think Seattle is a hell of a team and will ramp it back up. They definitely aren't dominant right now. But they played quite a few games in this stretch with 3rd and 4th string RBs. They got Carson back. That offense could be really explosive again.

Apparently the Rams are going bone jersey over yellow pants against the Jets in this TRAP GAME.

 

I don’t know...

This might end up being their worst combo of the season. I have a feeling those two colors are going to clash terribly.

 

Meanwhile, a regular white over athletic gold would be among the best road combos in the league, and would be classic, iconic Rams.

And conversely, athletic gold jerseys over white pants would be their best possible combination.

I would love to see that as well, but I think royal blue over athletic gold should remain the primary (it’s just quintessential Rams), with an athletic gold jersey being an alternate. 

 

I do wonder how an athletic gold jersey would be used, whether it would force the opposing team to wear their colored jersey, much like the Lakers (used to, at least) reserve their gold jerseys for home games. Essentially, I wonder whether a gold jersey against a white jersey would provide enough contrast.

I didn't mind it. Was like a chinese knock-off of their old away unis, which is the best set in NFL history
