NFL 2023 Changes


Recommended Posts

The photos of the hats should be taken with a grain of salt.

 

However, we the CCSLCers like to over analyze things.

 

The navy blue hat with white “H”-

I actually like this. It’s nice, simple, and to the point. However, they’re already a blue and white team with a simple uniform in the AFC South.

 

The “luv ya” blue, red, and white “H” hat-

It’s the color scheme Houston fans have been clamoring for for the better part of two decades (Holy moly, the Texans are 20). Problem? The Titans have a strangle hold on the color scheme and Oilers moniker. There could have been a deal made behind the scenes. Titans go navy heavy, Houston gets the “luv ya” blue as a permanent primary fixture.

 

There is also a rumor that Tennessee is debuting their Oilers throwbacks against Houston. So maybe the navy-for-luv ya deal ain’t happening and the Titans told Houston and their fans to shove it where the sun don’t shine.

 

Verdict- Houston is messing with us and those are just fashion hats with zero real meaning outside of fan and media appreciation.

I am kinda confused at the timing of all thing, to be honest. If they decided to lean into the Oilers colors around the time they had those really good teams with Schaub, Foster and Andre Johnson, that'd make sense, or even after they drafted Clowney. The franchise was young, and well the branding was solid, it was young enough to where it wouldn't really matter. But 20 years into the league where they've fully been established ? I don't know, that feels off to me. 

 

These are the kinds of things irrelevant franchises do to try to drum up interest.

 

(And to try mask their own ineptitudes...but we'll talk about that in a different thread on a different day.)

It's got to be almost a sure thing they go red helmet right? The overall reaction to those would make the franchises decision pretty easy. As far as uniforms, I wouldn't put it past them to go the simplistic route, like Washington State, with some subtle accents thrown in.

Put the Titans in navy and yellow (Predators colors, fits the market, unique to NFL, solid football color scheme) and let the Texans go with light blue, red, and navy.

I just can't see this happening. The Adams family is fiercely protective of the luv ya blue. Doubt they ever willingly give it up to the hated Texans. 

 

But if navy and yellow did happen, it would not only tie the Titans to other pro teams in their own market, but also sort of tie them to the historic New York Titans. Maybe they could even wrangle a way to wear those throwbacks if we're already going down the path of franchises trading history.

Nobody outside of these boards would make that connection, would they?

This is still my favorite non-RWB Texans concept I’ve seen on these boards (can’t remember who did it, but please if you do, let me know)

That'd be Mark Crosby, aka @mcrosby. Wouldn't be too apposed to this colorway, though I'd prefer if the uniforms leaned a bit more towards either what they have now or a simple Texas flag theme.

Looks nice, but I'd rather have the team named the Browns be the only team using brown.

There may be another approach to this scenario if red absolutely has to be a part of this colorway, especially if gold and white must also remain: darken the purple and eliminate the black. Something like this:

(Their current purple is closer to that middle square.)

 

It's either that or keep the black but 86 the gold (which is also not a bad idea). 

 

I'll have to play around with this some more in my free time—y'all done gave me some new fodder to work with in revisiting the case study I did on this whole Ravens brand identity...

I actually talked about that before. I think Indigo fits the Raven's best.
