for me:

1) 49ers

2) lions

3) jaguars (the entire set is a complete mess; they were fine with their old set. horrible job)

and while we're at it, i must make the point that about 90% of any uniform/logo update in ANY of the 4 major sports is a downgrade from a previous set

I posted a poll regarding this exact subject in the Polls Only forum.

I've noticed that as a community we are pretty hard on the pro uni designers. Sometimes with good reason, BUT I have a theory. Part of a uniforms greatness is its durability. The best uniforms last. Will the Lions, Jags or 49ers be wearing these in 5 or 10 years time. So immediate reaction tends to be 'oh my thats awful' because it doesn't yet intrinsically look like a Lions or Jaguars or 49ers uniform. It would be interesting to revisit peoples views on these uniforms come the end of the season.

At the moment though, I would grade tham all as a B-. None of them are outstanding, but I think anyone saying any of them are awful is overreacting.

49ers and Jaguars failed because they were replacing classics with inferior designs, and for silly reasons.

Detroit wins by default... but could have done so much more with this opportunity than what they did.

1. 49ers

2. Lions

3. Jags

49ers - Did what I wanted them to do for a long time. My only beef is that they didn't add any gold trim.

Lions - Improved upon their look, but would have looked better without the black. Anyways...

Jags - Downgrade. That's all that needs to be said.

in my eyes:

1-Lions...the old uniforms featured, among other things, the sloppiest striping i've ever seen. They finally fixed that, and i'm cool with the lion having actual detail.

2-neither San Fran or Jax deserve it, so nobody

3-Niners...I liked the 96-08 jerseys, alas in spite of the fact that the Niners fielded some pretty good teams in these unis, they'll likely be seen as representing their darkest days, much like Motre Bame, Gorton's Fisherman and OU football's short lived OKLAHOMA roads. As Rick Pitino would say, Joe Montana is not walking through that door...Jerry Rice is not coming out of that tunnel...hell, Merton Hanks aint doin his funky chicken no more

4-Jags...when your stated goal is looking more identifiable, I would say looking like cheap knockoffs of another team in your league would fit the bill of complete failure to achieve said goal. Fly Eaguars Fly...

None of them were very good. San Francisco was absolutely lazy and just brought an old set out of retirement. The Jags oversimplified and ended up looking like the Eagles. At least the Lions tried. While they failed on a couple of levels (the font, above all), they win.

I'm going to be the only person to say this, but I am satisfied with all of them. I have some qualms(49ers: gray facemask, Jaguars: no gold), but there's been far worse. I'd have to say I like the Lions the most. I've thought that black worked with Honolulu Blue nicely, so I'm glad that black's still around.

Ditto that sentiment. Exactly.

I still say that the Lions' look would be greatly improved by substituting Navy for Black as an accent color. That said, the Lions' new uniforms win this contest by default.

The 49ers new uniforms don't return to a classic look or establish a new look, so much as they clumsily meld elements of both. As for the Jaguars, their new uniforms are a throughly botched job.

Can we hold judgment on the Niners until we see the whole official set?

The thing is, we know what the Niners are going to wear because we've seen it. Remember Super Bowl XXIV? Maybe Super Bowl XXIII will refresh your memory as well. :P

I can tell you fans throughout the state of Colorado don't remember much after the first quarter. :lol:

1) Lions

2) 49ers (lame number font beats out grey facemask)

3) Jaguars

Though, IMO, none of these were horrible. Even the Jags get points for not being an over designed mess like the Bills, Bengals, and Vikings.

My opinion...

1. Lions - cleaned up the stripes on the sleeves and pants - nothing earth-shattering....but nothing too drastic - keeps the look intact.

2. 49ers - (I'm a 49ers fan) - however this uniform is NOT a throwback and combines the elements of the throwbacks with last year's design... They are pairing the classic cherry red jerseys with last year's metallic gold pants (looks kind of odd - combo last seen in 1958). This is a compromised set - retro and modern at the same time - so if that was the case - why not stick with last year's uni. Go all the way with the classics (1964- 1995) or stick with the modern (1996-2008) - the color sets in both work well... This looks OK - but nothing ground-breaking.

3. Jaguars - The college look doesn't belong in the NFL.
