New Bengals uniforms coming spring 2021

Recommended Posts

Finally.  Now here's hoping they do them right.  Those uniforms were dated as could be.  As much as it's overdue, at the very least, hopefully they get this right and Joe Burrow and the new Bengals have a look they can be proud of again.

I guess it's about time. But as someone who lives in the market, I can't think of how the new ones won't look bad, given some of the stuff we've seen recently. Cleveland/Tampa Bay's recent look gives me hope, but The Falcons/Rams do not.

The Bengal head is featured prominently, which seems like a good sign. Hopefully, Nike and the Bengals both take a look at how well received Cleveland's and LAC's uniforms were and how hated the Rams' are so far and know to be simple and traditional with these.

Thank God. Their soon-to-be-former uniforms were an eyesore since the day they were revealed. 

 

Luckily for the Bengals, the bar has been set so low that it's going to be extremely difficult for them to screw this up.

It seemed odd to me that they showed the road whites first in the original unis and the first stripe unis, and then closed with the all-white color rush. I'll start reading too much into this by asking if they go white at home. Or not black, maybe.

Hope they don’t go crazy with it, they just need to simplify what they have and it’ll look great.

I will be shocked if the Nike heads don’t screw this up. There is too much room with this design for them to go full Nike

Just give us the Color Rush uniforms but with orange instead of white stripes and be done with it, please.

If they go back to these, with this number font or something like it, they'll be set for years:

Look at how beautiful that game could be again.

I've seen lots of concepts on Instagram that suggest the Bengals adopt their Color Rush as their home and aways. Hopefully Nike and the NFL just keep it as an alterante because to me the orange and black is an iconic look no matter the era. Also, the white and black color scheme would look similar to the Jag's new unis, another cat team, so that might be another reason for them to not go that route.

Best news I could hope for. 
 

Worst fears I’m preparing myself for. 
 

oh, Nike, please have mercy on us Bengals/ Uniform fans.

Predictions:

  • solid execution is tainted by stupid addition to the helmet, like a chrome facemask or something; a classic Nike-couldn't-help-themselves gaffe
  • custom block with same-color stroke, ala the Jags
  • stripes will be horizontal and along the lower thigh/knee region of the pants and shoulder sleeves

What's promising is the inclusion of the superior tiger head at the end. Hopefully this is the direction the new branding takes and not a 'C' or 'B' with gradients and stripes meant to represent the industry of Cincinnati or something like that...

I hope the helmet stays the same, and they keep an emphasis on orange. I know, its crazy to think that they wouldn't but the color rush is plain black and white. (The teaser video was solely black and orange, but it did highlight white jerseys) Plus, there are plenty of "Tigers" that aren't orange and black (Memphis, Clemson, LSU). I can't complain until I have a reason to.

 

Their set was definitely outdated, but I think there are redeeming qualities to it. Lets hope some of those stay (Helmet, the actual tiger stripes, unique number font (im a sucker for those) color balance (minus the side panels)).

Nike had been pushing lots of design elements in the numbers earlier on. The latest have been fairly safe. Why do I sense we will see stripes in the numbers?
