Screw the Dolphins for not vetoing that.

The Dolphins Color Rush was executed poorly, but don't count out orange jerseys for them. Remember this?

Yeah Dolphins color rush orange was more of a Tennessee Volunteer orange

It literally was the same color at the time as Tennessee (Pantone 151), but now that they have reverted back to their old orange, I'm hoping it would look more like the Ronnie Brown pic

These were nice.  Too bad they didn't last longer than a couple of seasons, even if it was in the style guide when the Nike takeover happened in 2012

I don't hate the idea of a silver jersey, but the Patriots' experiment indicates it probably wouldn't look very good in practice.  Especially with Nike's must-be-matte fabric limitations.

And it would likely be paired with black pants, which would be awful.

 

 

ugh yea this doesn't look good at all. It just looks dirty, Grimy.

With Higgins in 85 and Lamb in 88, maybe a there will be a rebirth of WRs wearing 80-89. I always preferred 80-89 as the general rule and 10-19 as the exception (like, maybe 10-25%). 

 

The guy who brought the WR's in 10-19 trend back was Keyshawn Johnson who for some reason wore 19 when he joined the Jets in 1996. I never warmed up to receivers wearing numbers in the teens. It just looks wrong to me. 

 

Frankly I'd rather let them wear 0-9 and 20-29. Leave 10-19 for QB's and kickers/punters.

No, teams barley have enough numbers in the 20s, and 30s to give to RBs and DBs.

Ranking the NFL's new uniforms:

 

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

2. Cleveland Browns

3. Los Angeles Chargers

4. New England Patriots

5. Indianapolis Colts

6. Los Angeles Rams

7. Atlanta Falcons

 

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- A welcome return to the Super Bowl-winning set complete with a smaller helmet logo. Combine that with the excitement of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski and you have all the eyes on Tampa Bay this upcoming season.

 

2. Cleveland Browns -- Another return to greatness. This set really shows that less is more. A toss-up here between the Browns and Chargers, the Browns get the nod based on the level of improvement over their previous set.

 

3. Los Angeles Chargers -- Beginning to see a trend here? Another retro-inspired set. The lines of the new logo are far better and the new typeface/number set is a very nice fit. And who doesn't like powder-blue?

 

4. New England Patriots -- Finally. They dropped the silly side panels and inconsistent striping. The transition into the classically-striped color rush uniforms, with an evenly-weighted number font, is a welcomed one.

 

5. Indianapolis Colts -- As lateral of a move as you can make. I even debated including them or not due to the only uniform change was a slab-serif addition to the number font. The wordmark and alternate logo changes are fine. Nothing to complain about.

 

6. Los Angeles Rams -- Unveiled today, and not as bad as I feared. The logos did not give me much hope. Negatives: gradient stripes/numbers, no TV numbers, no white set -- a bone grey away uniform instead, a silly team name patch. Positives: the colors, no helmet horn gradient.

 

7. Atlanta Falcons -- Bland. Generic. Boring. Hard to do when you have a red, black, and silver color palette. They took Tampa's oversized helmet logo and silver facemask out of the garbage and proudly pair it with a red-to-black gradient uniform with a side-panel stripe. Woof.

I'm afraid that patch is more insidious than silly.  That's a Trojan Horse for advertising on the jerseys.

Yeah -- when I first saw it, I thought it was a sponsor. It looked like one of these ...

Yep, and if they can get away with putting the team patch there this year without any significant pushback I fully expect that to get quietly replaced with a sponsor's patch in a year or two.

Not sure if pushback even matters. Practice jerseys have had them for a while now and the NBA has set a US precedent for ads on game jerseys... may just happen regardless.

You're probably right, especially now that the NBA has broken the ice.

Hell of an off season we’ve had. I’m SO happy my team went first and actually upgraded.

Umm..you do know the gradient is the alternate, like the bucs ugly pewter. If we're judging solely on NEW home/away defaults I'd say...

 

Actual new uniforms: Chargers, Falcons, Rams

Slightly updated: Browns, Bucs, Colts, Patriots.

I’d argue that the Buccaneers new pewter alternate is probably the most well thought out new alternate uniform. Unlike Atlanta’s gradient.

Hey, I have no dog in that fight lol. I could live without either of them ever seeing the field.
