That's about as perfect as a modern uniform can get in my eyes. It adheres to existing football uniform design expectations but brings something new to the table and looks great whether the jersey is white or red. I hate that they ever got away from this, and I'm not even a Bucs fan. I shouldn't care. That set was just too good to let die out. Look at that balance, look at those colors. I pray they basically go back to this exact look, maybe with a custom number font. Brady deserves to play in something beautiful at least once.

They could’ve kept the previous design if they had just trimmed it down. By trimmed it down I mean using the current helmet instead of the two-tone.

True... I also loved the number font. All they needed was to simplify the leg stripe, helmet, and shoulder caps.

At least the Bucs can go ahead and make changes as soon as it's time, unlike my Falcons after all this time.

Oh yeah today is the day.... hopefully they'll be able to keep some orange with the pewter and red and ditch the grey.

Hoping they surprise us and add teal accents to the uniform.

What is everyone’s obsession with pewter? Imo it’s just a different shade of brown and it looks terrible 

 

I don't know that it's terrible, but I think a regular dark gray would be better than the warm/brownish shade that pewter is.

I think it's less about pewter as a color and more about how well it worked with the red/orange/black that they used in the Bucs hay day.  Also, while the creamsicles are awesome in hindsight, they weren't really viewed with much fanfare by NFL fans nationally.  I remember my family constantly making fun of them when they were on TV back in the day, so when they made the jump to that color scheme and they started looking bad-ass, plus playing good football finally, it felt like they had a new identity that you had to respect.  All in all, I think that's why pewter gets the love it does.  But what do I know I'm an Eagles fan who suffered through the NFC championship game at the Vet so screw the Bucs, lol.

I think back in the day the creamsicles were disrespected because the Bucs had been historically awful throughout most of the time they wore them. And I agree that the 1997 set was, for a long time, identified with a change in fortunes for the franchise;  they were pretty consistent playoff contenders for the first decade in that set. My point is that I think part of our immediate opinion of a uniform (especially by more general fans) can be colored by the on-the-field performance of the team in that uniform.

 

In hindsight, both the original Bucs set and the 1997 re-design were good, well-designed uniforms.

I was there for that. Shut the Vet down. I agree about the pewter. However, it is now a losing color. No playoff wins since that 2002 season + no playoff appearances since 2007. If they did a matte white helmet, it would be an elite uniform. The pewter helmet drags it down big time.

I was 16.  My first "big" game.  To this day, it's still the loudest I ever remember a stadium, and on the same day the quietest.  I was there for the TB loss and the CAR loss, then had tix to the ATL NFC championship game and couldn't go due to a major illness. Pissed me off for years that I missed it, but then 2017 happened and I scored tickets the day of.  Needless to say the demons were exercised -- GO BIRDS!
