Guys, guys, guys. The Cardinals are DEFINITELY switching to periwinkle next season. Trust me./s

Oh you didn’t know? Bidwell is selling the team to Mark Zuckerberg, who famously made it know that his favorite color is periwinkle. The purchase will become public next month.

No, they don’t even allow first initial anymore


Still allowed, just not required.  They changed the rule when the Patriots drafted a second Brady.

 

Teams can have multiple players with the same NOB.  They don’t have to differentiate but can if they like.

Is that so?  I don't recall hearing that before.

Lukas says the explanation was never made official - I remember it being much more definite.  Or maybe it was just so obvious at the time?

There was a big kerfuffle at the very thought that Tom Terrific might have to add an initial to the back of his jersey. And as if by magic, the rules changed so he didn’t have to.

The Steelers have only worn their Color Rush uniforms in Pittsburgh, and this year’s home slate includes games against the Raiders (Sept. 19),  Bengals(Sept. 26), Broncos (Oct. 10), Seahawks(Oct. 17), Bears (Nov. 8), Lions (Nov. 14), Ravens (Dec. 5), Titans (Dec. 19) and Browns (Jan. 3).


…Pittsburgh will likely wear the uniforms against Seattle on Sunday Night Football or Chicago or Cleveland on Monday Night Football.

Seattle will probably wear all-neon green, which will be the worst case scenario (see ARI/SEA 2020). So maybe against the Browns who wear all-white or white/orange?

These uniforms are about as close to perfect as you can get now, instantly a contender for top uniform set in the NFL.

I still say they should drop the navy and clean up some of the striping inconsistencies but it’s a good look overall.

just counting down the days the Jets can return to their classic look and ditch these Division III looking threads

They better brighten the green then. Say what you want about the current look but at the very least the green isn't that awful drab shade they were wearing before.

I am all for returning to that look but I agree. I'd rather have this mess of a look with the beautiful shade of green.

The unnecessary navy trim removes it from the "perfect" discussion.  Too many outlines on the stripes and numbers - they forced the color in where it clearly didn't belong.

The new Jets set is better in every way and I’m prepared to die on that hill

 

We are definitely in the minority, and while I think the previous uniforms were great, I agree think the Jets set is one of Nike's more successful uniforms.

If they would've just done a single green pants stripe that extended the entire length of the pants this set would be so much better, too. I'm fine with the pointy arrow/stripe thing on the jersey. The pants it's just weird.

I prefer the Jets new set as well. They're certainly not the best, but the previous felt incredibly boring to me, especially with the bland green color and the blocky shoulder striping. It just feels a bit too old to work for me. The new set, however, especially with the brighter green, feels much more modern and actually does something to evoke the jet mascot. I'm not a huge fan of the triangle stripes, but they're fine as is. I think double stripes that cut off at angles would look much better, saving some semblance of tradition while retaining the motion that the current triangles offer. That, and the black number strokes need to go.
