Yeah, the other stuff is problematic, but those two are awesome.

 

The bone jerseys are horrific in any combo, and even the blue-over-gold (their only semi-tolerable look) is still ruined by the poor design decisions. Literally the only thing worth keeping from this era is the helmet color. Everything else is inferior to the throwbacks.

After the Bengals, it's Rams, Falcons, Titans, Seahawks, and Cardinals, easily. But since the Rams, Titans, and Falcons are stuck for a while, it's Seahawks, Cardinals, Broncos, Ravens, and Saints.

 

Throw in the Jets too.

I think these are just concepts. I don’t think official concepts by the team would have the NFL shield off-center on the collar.

Pretty sure UniMockups on Instagram made those, but they’re not all ugly

Yeah, someone over there just commented that most came from unimockups.com and a fantasy football blogger named Pete Rogers (?). I also re-read the post and there's really nothing there that would hint at credibility. Kinda regretting that I shared it, TBH.

A poster at forum.go-bengals.com is claiming to have a scoop, and several concepts (all of which are ugly) are included. Take it for what its worth:

The stripes make me think of this:

My unpopular opinion is that the seahawks and titans have nice, modern uniforms which are some of the only ones in the league that look good in monotone (navy/navy for both)

The only thing thats objectively nice about these is that they're objectively the nicest uniforms in this god awful set, which doesn't say much

The Titans having nice uniforms is a very unpopular opinion. The Seahawks may not be to everyone's personal taste, but they are competently designed. The Titans are a mess. They went way too hard on the sword motif, to the point of being gimmicky, and added all that unnecessary double gray to an already crowded color pallet. Then they realized they forgot the light blue and just slapped it under the armpits. If they had made the sword-shaped yokes entirely light blue, and dropped the pit-stains, they would be 100 times better.

I'd say both Seattle's and Tennessee's sets were overcooked; Tennessee's just more so. But you're correct in that they went waaaayyyyy too overboard on the sword motif, double-up on the gray-and then kinda snuck the light blue in as an afterthought.

 

I know we're not supposed to post concepts in this section, but this idea exists for a reversioned Titans set that probably does a better job of blending all that stuff together.

The Titans won’t let the Texans become the Oilers, but have diminished both of the Oilers colors and become a navy-silver team, which already exists (Dallas if they handle their business). If you’re gonna squat on the Oilers brand (which is fine, considering they are technically still that franchise), you should at least prominently use those colors.

Here's a rare photo of the Esiason set with normal block font as opposed to Champion:

I was never a big fan of these uniforms. And if these came back I think I would like them even less. 

Back then LARGE shoulder-pads were worn. This helped with the shoulder stripes. 

With shoulder-pads being smaller these days, the stripes would either need to be moved closer to the collar, allowed to droop down the arm, and or thinned to negate the lose of due to the shoulder-pad loss. 

If you thin the shoulder, you then need to thin the pants stripe. How does the strip look thinned out? I think it would look worse.

You're right. The two tweaks I can think of are these:

 

  1. Revert to the previous uniforms
  2. Change the green to a lighter shade, e.g. Kelly green.

Do those two tweaks and it's perfection! The Jets have the third worst uniforms in the league Only the Broncos and Falcons are worse.

 

 

 

I don't have faith in the Bengals improving their uniforms sine Nike is involved. I hope I'm wrong. What I would prefer to see is that they go back to the design from the late '80s. MCM0313's post on page 7 is the look to which I'm referring. Ditch the black jerseys and pants in favor of orange and the Bengals will then have great uniforms. The current striping, piping and emphasis on black really make the uniforms a bad set.

I feel like there are some people on this site who are putting a bit too much stock in the random comment somebody apparently made about the changes being minor. What a frequent poster on this board would call minor vs the general population is pretty different. I'm reminded that back in 2006, when the Vikings were about to change from the Culpeper/Moss uniforms to their Rebok mess the owner's son refered to the upcoming changes as minor.

 

I know I've related this story on the board before, but I once got in a conversation with a Saints fan who was proud of the "fact" that the Saints had never changed their uniforms. I tried pointing out changes in logos, striping, number colors, etc, and he looked at me like I was crazy. Because they'd always worn black jerseys, gold helmets, and had the same logo, in his mind that literally equalled no changes.

 

Minor could mean anything.

It’s crazy how sometimes the general population can’t even see something like a different striping pattern on a jersey. Like “Oh the old jersey had stripes, this one doesn’t” seems so simple, but yet people are so confused by that... It’s very strange to me.

 

I understand people not seeing the little changes like the difference from the 49ers previous set to their current one, where they only changed the sleeve striping pattern, and it honestly looked the same before, since the pattern was cut off by the sleeves. 
 

So minor changes here probably means a change in the striping pattern and number font, but the same helmet, black jersey with white numbers, and white pants. And then the road to match. While that’s a big change here, that’s definitely a minor change to the rest of the sports world.

Best case scenario IMO, is they go more Chargers and Bucs level of change.  

Worse case, Rams and Falcons

 

Top 3 teams needing an update:

1- Cardinals: complete overhaul

2- Saints:  choose a gold, not a beige, only need one outline on the logo, no more black on black this isn't Any Given Sunday

3- Texans:  Do something, anything.

Fixed it.
