2008 NFL Season Weekly Uniform Rants & Raves

Recommended Posts

I know I'm six weeks late with this here, but here goes. (I think I was late with this last year, too.)

From what I've seen thus far...

...looks like the Ravens are going to stick with the black pants on the road this year. They're in them again. (Can't emphasize enough how good some type of striping or design details would look on those pant sother than a hip logo...)

...and the Hams are in white pants on the road @ the Redskins (which means they're in blue tops, as well.) (FWIW, right now they're also up on said Redskins @ the half??? :blink: )

That's all I've seen thus far. Anyone got anything else for this week?

It looks like the Bears are going to wear white pants on the road the whole season. The only time they wore the blue pants with the white jerseys was the first home game I think.

Now I understand that Tampa, Florida is located in the south east, and I as well understand that it gets hotter than a microwave there at times, but seriously, can the Bucs just wear red at home, once in the early season? Now dont get me wrong, I like the white, but this:

looks SO much better than this:

I SO agree with that.

And...well I guess I'll toss this observation on up in here, as well:

The Texans were wearing the blue socks with the blue pants today against the Dolphins. It just looks horrible especially because they have such a nice look with the white jerseys with the red numbers the blue pants with the red and white stripe and then the red socks to accent the whole package. The inmates are running the asylum and it SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!

I wish the Falcons would bring out the black pants with something other than the black jersey. Red over black would look good.

I think they don't, because the jerseys have Black side stripes, and the Black pants have a Red stripe.

They don't match.

The Texans were wearing their blue socks with the blue pants. They are usually wearing the red socks with the blue pants unless they go mono. Eh.... it does make a difference. I am waiting for them to go with the red pants with the white tops. Then again the Texans have so much different combos if they wanted to do.

Saints in white at home, with black pants, again!!

and for the Falcons comment, they tried the black/red/black "Texas Tech" look a few times in 2005, and it eventually got rejected!

I personally want to see the alternate black jersey worn with white pants, like the uniform set was intended. I loved that look.

I was hoping one time they would wear the black striping/socks with red tops. I think they had that combo in Madden one year.

I still want the Falcons to go to black/black/white and black/white/black as a primary home/away combination. That's when they look best, IMO.

The Chargers are wearing the powder blue. It's not the best uniform in the NFL, but it's close. :P

They have tried it, though. I don't think it looks bad at all.

In my opinion, they are the best in the league, with the Broncos orange a close second.

And the usual home uniform is my favorite for the Falcons... black/red/white. Love that look!

I gotta agree with Drew here. The mismatching stripe irks me so.

The way it looks from the front is nice though.

They just need some red pants.

And now I'm blind.

Good thing I've memorized where each key is. Damn you, Drew.

Red socks would make these the best in the league.

as for the Ravens black pants, one solution that might work is to add two purple stripes that start wide at the hip and then taper off towards the middle like the mimicking the helmet stripes. It wouldn't show up well, but it would add some depth to the pants design.

Mission accomplished.

They should have them paired with the white jersey. Like Kansas City with black helmets.
