What I don't like (still) is the NFL Equipment shield. The white background sticks out like a sore thumb and on this jersey, it looks bigger than the NY under the collar. If they insist on that, why can't the triangle around the NFL shield at least be jersey color?

I have a feeling that if the Falcons ever use this new cut of jersey they will look really weird. The sleeve doesn't seem big enough to fit three colors and a falcon all while making it look normal.

Just watch the highlights on nfl.com, and what really jumped out at me was how the Giants' names seemed to be right on top of their numbers. Is that what the previous poster meant by them being 'thinner'? I thought they meant the letters themselves were thinner. And it does look like they're applied right to the jersey and not on a nameplate, at least in the tiny little video window. I don't like the look at all of the names being right on the numbers. Looks goofy.

Reminds me of how strange some of OU's jerseys look. The 'Sooners' on the front is way below the collar (possibly because of the stupid swoosh), so the bottom of the number is damn near at the belt. Note how the A&M wordmark is right below the collar. I don't understand why someone at a major school like OU doesn't say to Nike, "That looks ridiculous. Fix it." :cursing:

They did seem taller to me, but also I felt like they were much closer together. Bradshaw's "44" was the most prominent example to me. They looked like they were almost touching. It almost reminded me of Notre Dame's numbers which seem really tall and thin.

i dont like the nfl shield as it is now. i always liked it as on the bottom of the collar. now it is just on the jersey...just doesnt look right.

That's my main problem with it. The shield being on the jersey instead of on the bottom of the collar, added with the NY script and then the number makes it all look like it's just bunched together.

And yeah, it's definitely gonna look worse once the teams with stripes on the sleeves jump on the bandwagon. I'm all for anything that helps performance, but it hurts my heart to see style sacrificed for performance. :P

Presuming, of course, that these jerseys actually improve performance.

Good luck drawing a holding call with THAT on. They literally won't have anything to tug, a holding penalty would be obvious.

I mentioned this earlier

-Less holding

-More tackles using the body, not the arms.

I'm still curious is to whether this is a permanent change or not.

I think it looks awful with the shield placement and no red. But that's just me.

I hope the road ones aren't ruined too.

What teams are doing this? This does look like the NHL EDGE jerseys.

The one on the right looks like a piece of clothing. The one on the left looks some sort of molded apparatus. Which, when you think about it, is probably the next natural progression: protective pads molded together into a full chest covering, with team and player-specific designs.

I understand the utility behind this. But that doesn't mean I have to like the look.

Get ready for it however - Reebok is going to pitch it to "all" teams and the losers in this, are the teams with the wide sleeve stripes (Browns, Steelers).

The 49ers butchered their jerseys with the truncated sleeve stripes... This new style will circulate among all 32 teams, where the uniform is now mapped to the body for an even tighter fit. Teams with very little or nothing on the sleeves such as the Raiders can easily make the transition. Whereas teams like the Bears are caught in an impasse with this new fit. It also means the numbers are stretched as the uniform is being mapped to the body. Sleeves are almost becoming extinct.

Personally I think that teams like the Bears have nobody but themselves to blame for looking stupid in smaller cut jerseys. Any team that tries to cram sleeve stripes and numbers on the sleeves when they have nothing on the shoulders is really dumb. And a minor change like that shouldn't cause an uproar amongst fans.

What, no one can grab a hold on those (now) exposed shoulder pads?

Bingo. There are new surfaces under which an opponent can hook his fingers.

I think the "performance" effect is more likely psychological, or the "6% faster!" RBK EDGE hockey sweaters.

As to whether they are the real deal, they are. Certain teams are testing them now, but the plan is to roll them out league-wide.

If you look at all the Nike schools they all had the low hanging V cut last year too. Drove me crazy.
