I didn't recognize him.

Wrong jersey, wrong number, wrong helmet (visor)

As fugly as Tebow is to watch play (that throwing motion, ugh), the all white unis look good in the bright sunlight. The green really pops.

Just found out that Jari Kurri played for 3 different teams in his last 3 years. I've only ever thought of him as an Oiler and King.

This should also be mentioned...

Even as a coach, that just seems off.

I didn't even know Eli suited up for the Chargers. I always thought he even refused to do that. That is pretty interesting!

Figured Eli's size 9 head was a dead giveaway. :rolleyes:

This hasn't fully sunk in for me yet.

Still got to wait til week 1 for some action pics of the other new NFLers, aside from jerseys only or photoshops, so far.

Seriously, I had to do a double take on that. Great job. Did you totally photoshop Elway in a Bronco jersey into that? Or did you just stick his head on an old picture of Bert Jones?

I think the latter since there's another Colt in the picture and it would be far less work than 'shopping a whole uniform.

That explains the too-big shoulder stripes. Still though, I've gotta tell you that you fooled me for a minute there.

It was just a color change for when Elway was at Stanford. Still, a nice job.

I recognized it right away, but a hobby of mine is photoshopping players into different uniforms and concept uniforms so I know what to look for. When you're searching for good photos to shop you learn to look for little shortcuts and similarities between uniforms to make the work easier, which in turn makes it look more realistic.

The shoulder loops gave it away, but making stripes look realistic where there are none in the origin photo is one of the most challenging things to nail, I've found.

Ah, good catch. I didn't think about his college days. I also didn't notice the shoulder stripes. Now that I look at them they are a dead giveaway. But still like you said, a good job.

John Elway - Baltimore Colts

That's a good photoshop. It looks real.

And here I figured the the lack of gray would be the dead giveaway.

ICYDK, the Colts incorporated gray in what would've been Elway's only season ('83) with the Baltimore Colts.

These are purely based on my personal opinions. Interestingly, both of the following went to the same high school as myself:

Bryce Drew - Houston Rockets (I'm a fan of both the Bulls and the Hornets. This does NOT mean I hate the Rockets)

And as a lifelong Cubs fan, it must be said:

Interestingly enough, former A's owner Charlie Finley was from one county over from where we went to school.
