Come on, folks. This is beautiful. Fix a few things and you've got a really great look. The helmet shell stays though.

Those jerseys were anything but beautiful with the random piping that wasn’t consistent from player to player.

At least three teams (off the top of my head) have completely unnecessary jersey patches

Here’s to hoping at least one of them drop it relatively soon.

The Chiefs one will never be dropped because it is a memorial to Lamar Hunt.

I think all 3 of those patches are necessary.

 

- The Chiefs is for Lamar Hunt. I like the homage and that it's a unique quirk. 

- The Steelers need something there so when you're looking at the player from the left there's at least one logo present. Why not just put a logo on the blank side of the helmet? Sure, if I could time travel to Pittsburgh in the 1960's and slap stickers on the left side of their helmets to calm my OCD I would, but at this point you can't mess with the helmet. 

- The Jaguars uniforms are so basic that need something so as not to be completely mistaken for practice unis. Why not put the full body jaguar on the sleeves? IDK.

Weird.

Can't prefer that original logo while it's got packing peanuts on its head.

Used to be in this camp but with time I’ve learned to appreciate how much simpler the old one is compared to the newer one. 
The shading and tiny details in the spots don’t work from far away imo.

 

It still isn’t a bad logo though.

I definitely appreciate the simplicity of it. @mcrosby made a brilliant update that I really like:

Combines the simplicity and general shape of the old logo with the spots and modern feel of the new one.

That looks like a D3 college was trying to rip off the Jaguars logo, but had a first year design student do it.

Didn't @andrewharrington suggest that the OG logo looked like it had a broken jaw?

I will never be able to unsee how disjointed the old logo is now. Still not a bad logo, but that’s a detail that will bug me for sure.

I was just going to say that a combination of the two logos would be ideal, and this does that pretty great. I would maybe add some white in the eyes and make the jaw look a little bit more like the current version, but other than that this would be a perfect middle ground.

Really am hoping for a Jaguars throwback for several reasons, but one reason would be seeing how the full body cat would fit on a modern cut of uniform. I am skeptical.

Most people don't buy on-field authentics though. It doesn't matter what the players wear when 99% of the fans buy the screen printed replicas anyway.

 

Do they? 

 

Honest question, I have no idea.  Would love to know what the breakdown is between the various levels.

I'm willing to be wrong on this, but I really doubt the reason the Steelers added the logo to the jersey was to fill a logo gap left by having one blank side of the helmet.  And I also doubt the logic behind the Jaguars patch has anything to do with the jerseys being too plain.

 

It's more likely about making the jerseys retail friendly. It's the same reason we see teams repeat helmet logos on jersey sleeves. On the whole, it looks redundant, but for streetwear, the logo becomes an identifier and an opportunity for brand exposure.

 

But even then, despite it having a function, I'd still argue that it's unnecessary and the Steelers and Jaguars could — and should — lose the patches.

I agree with this. When you're watching the game or you're looking at photos...you know it's the Steelers (like DNASports' photo...we know that's the Steelers in the photo and not Iowa or somebody). Additional logos like a patch on the shoulder are marginal for identification of the brand, especially with the NFL logo on uniform elements.

Well I know the onfield authentics are really hard to come across now. I’ve only been able to find a few online across the league that aren’t fully sold out or having to create custom ones.
