I don't hate it. The number font is very Coyotes-esque (it's not quite the current one without the shadow). I kinda wish they went with a standard block font with a heavy-ish outline. I"m very happy they didn't try anything regarding the color rush, because those were straight trash.

 

So we've seen the apparent black and orange jerseys, but I'm nervous about the white jerseys. Are the stripes just going to be black? Because that would look kinda dumb. If there's going to be two black stripes and one orange stripes, then they should brought that same design to the black/orange jerseys.

This is my biggest worry, but for the opposite reason. This makes me feel that they’re going to keep the stupid looking contrasting black shoulder yoke on the white jersey. That’s the worst part of their current set IMO, and needs to be ditched immediately.

This is horrible. Looks like a cheap Wish knockoff.. If these are indeed the new unis it further proves that Mike Brown is the cheapskate he truly is and cant do anything right. The only thing that I like from these is the Paul Brown signature in the collar. Football knowledge clearly skipped a generation from Paul to Mike.

I’ll believe they are going to have two-color numbers when I see it.

 

That said, I will take it if offered.  It’s sort of a clean-up of the current uniform, with several bad things going away.

 

The orange stripes on the black jersey are a bit odd; it’s why I prefer the original orange “band” with black tiger stripes.

I would not be surprised if there’s no orange on it at all.

If anything I think the two leaked jerseys make it more likely that the stripes on the white jersey will be just black over white (or orange over white, but probably black.)

I like these so far. I want to see the pants and socks options to solidify my opinion. The Bengals didn’t need anything really complicated. Just a simplified uniform that compliments their helmets. I think this does that so far.
 

P.S. I’m so glad the hideous white stripe is gone.

I don’t think that freeing the design features from the panels works as well here as it did for the Chargers: Tigers are overwhelmingly black stripes on orange, not the other way round. This way it just looks like a cheap imitation and I’d rather they ditch the tiger stripes wholesale instead of orange stripes on black. An orange shoulder panel containing the black stripes like in the original tiger stripes uniforms would have been better

Another mockup by Goodberry...the old wordmark is still better than the current one:

 

 

Hopefully the pants have a lot of stripes like that...I'm guessing Nike went with three stripes on each shoulder (six total) to tie in with the six stripes on the helmet...hopefully there is more than three stripes on each leg.

Not going to get too excited until I see the whole look on a player, but I like the direction. It's a super hybrid of the 80's unis and the good parts of the 04 uniform. As a fan I'm a fan.
