Is it just me or does Trent Dilfer look way out of proportion here? Something about his head size just seems off.

Sarcasm? It's not Trent Dilfer. It's Joe Ferguson.

He just has a big head with big shoulder pads

Hehehe, wasn't supposed to be sarcasm, I had forgotten Ferguson had a quick cup of coffee with the Bucs for a few years. Either way, he still looks out of proportion...kinda bizarre.

That's Joe Ferguson? How was the poor guy expected to tell those white helmets apart from all the other white helmets?

He played for the Bucs in the late 80s...just being able to throw a ball was the only requirement for a Bucs QB at that time.

Wasn’t “catch and eat an Ybor City rooster” also a requirement?

Well Vinny was playing most of the time.

 

The Joe Ferguson color blind story is weird because he supposedly had trouble with all the white helmets, and the red helmets made it easier to see...but that difference in color would help pretty much everyone.

Q&A: Bucs' New Helmet and Marks

 

What if any changes have been made to the helmet?

The pewter shell of the helmet is unchanged but the facemask is now a more menacing black, as it was from 1997-2013. The flag logo with the skull and crossed swords is the sharper, more detailed one used with the most recent uniforms, but it features the deeper, richer red of the Super Bowl era. However, the size of the logo has been reduced by approximately 10% from the previous helmet so the sword is visible at all times

 

Is the flag logo positioned the same on all varieties of helmets?

Yes, the logo will be the same size and be on the same place on all varieties of helmets that the players choose.

 

Do the images in the photo gallery of the new uniforms depict the helmet logos as they will be?

The photos of the Lavonte David, Chris Godwin and Devin White modeling the new uniforms was taken before a helmet with the reduced-size logo was created, so they do not depict how the logo will look on the helmet in 2020. However, this photo gallery also includes a picture of the helmet with the logo at its correct new size. (Photo below.)

Speaking of the darker, richer red, how do the colors of the new uniforms differ from those of the last two?

The Super Bowl-era red has been paired with the pewter from the most recent uniforms. The team did explore bringing back the historic pewter hue, too, but found it impossible to recreate the color correctly on the completely different textiles used by Nike in today's uniforms. The orange used as an accent in several places on the uniform is the same as was used between 1997-2013. Black has also been restored as an accent color throughout the uniform, as was the case with the classic design.

 

How does the design and usage of the secondary ship logo differ from the previous uniforms?

The Buccaneers are going back to featuring the black ship logo on both sleeves of their white and red jerseys, as was the style of the uniforms from 1997-2013. The most recent uniforms featured a ship on one sleeve and a "BUCS" wordmark on the other. The Color Rush pewter jerseys will feature red ship logos on both shoulders. When new uniforms were introduced in 2014 the team also revealed a refreshed ship logo with sharper lines and more details in the sails. That design has been retained, although there was one minor change as the mast of the back set of sails is now behind the sails rather than in front of them.

 

What are the specifics about the "BUCCANEERS" wordmark on the front of the jersey?

The BUCCANEERS wordmark will continue to use the new font that was created in 2014. However, the colors of all versions of the mark have been changed to match the new red and pewter combination. For printed material, the "Tampa Bay" above "Buccaneers" will now be pewter on red and black backgrounds and black on white and silver backgrounds. The logomark with just the word "Buccaneers" will once again be featured on the front of the jerseys, above the numbers, as it was during the Super Bowl era, though it will be a larger size than it was from 1997-2013. The wordmark will be black on the white and red jerseys and red on the pewter jerseys. The pewter jerseys feature all red accents, without any black other than the ship logos on the sleeves.

 

Why didn't the Buccaneers return to their "creamsicle" orange and white uniforms?

The majority of fan feedback indicated a preference for the Super Bowl-era uniforms, but there was some support for the original colors as well. The Buccaneers do want to include that uniform among their options to use in "throwback games," as they did from 2009-11. However, it is currently out of the teams' control due to a league rule regarding the use of just one set of helmets per season. The Buccaneers and several other teams are working with the league to change this rule and to get a fourth "throwback" option approved as soon as possible.

This is so much better than their current cluttered mess.  Even the neon green can't save the modern uniforms from being terribly drab.

Do teams still have a one-year waiting period before they can wear a new design? Doesn't seem like it.

For pants it seems like they can be tweaked midseason. For jerseys it's been 5 year rule for a little bit. Not sure how helmets work but given they're up there with jerseys in brand importance, changing the shell color (more than just the finish or facemask) is probably 5 years as well

Wow, wasn't ready for such a patchwork of wait times. 5 years on jerseys? Damn.

 

How about that fairly recent concussion-related rule - that players must wear the same helmet all year. Patriots now have two facemask colors, color rushes maybe too, so obviously the face masks can be changed out.

The facemask can be changed because it doesnt require any breaking in. The rule behind not changing shells is that modern football helmets need to be broken in. As someone only a year removed from playing in riddels newest helmet model, I can attest that they can be uncomfortable if not broken in.

You keep talking like you have seen the new Patriots uniforms but unless I missed something they still have not been released.

The Flutie pic? 

 

Everybody seems to like the return to the darker red. Not me, the brighter red looks so much better. Those side by side logos, same thing. 

 

49ers made a similar change-back, in reverse. They dumped the scarlet red for a darker red and added black in the 90s, but then went back to that gorgeous scarlet in about 2003.
