That really does look for all the world like a wide Byron collar under a dark suit.

This is a legit problem that the NFL teams and Nike needs to fix, right? That damn collar is just so distracting, even for a team with a solid collar like the Texans. Can you imagine how bad it will look with a full team running around?

Terrible Fail Nike. And poor decision making by the NFL teams that gave this look the green light.

Seriously, how stretched out are those collars going to be on interior lineman who strive for a tight fit??!?!

The answer is so simple; if you want a Nikelace collar, make it the same color as the rest of the jersey.

Losing the contrasting collars is better than these half-way measures.

Seeing these flywire collars in action makes me really glad that my Pats don't have to deal with this flywire bull :censored:! :boogie:

Agreed. Those are goddamn terrible.

I don't hate the cut-off collars for teams that pretty much already had them (Chargers, Bills, Vikings), and they work for the Titans as well, but on everyone else, it's butt ugly.

Or just do whatever the Patriots did. Their collars went completely unchanged, and AFAIK they didn't do what the packers did in refusing to change templates either. These teams need to be assertive and stand up for themselves/stick to their guns.

We finally have our golds matched only to sport this eyesore of a collar. So close to a solid look. So, so close.

yea some of the collars just look forced on some team like the saints, texans etc. I feel like if they want to do the cutoff collars, they should at least make them thinner. That picture of the saints rookie was awful, the jersey had too much clutter.

I mean, they have to know that this looks bad, right? Seriously, those collars are the absolute worst.

I really think if we press hard to coin the phrase "Nike Toilet Seat Technology" we will accelerate the rate of speed that these particular teams and Nike fix this garbage.

Doubtful since this Flywire collar stuff has been around for 3 years now (at least) if we include college football.

They would look so much better if they squared off the end of the collars instead of ending them in a point.

One can try...

Here are more. Still haven't seen a San Diego uniform yet, that should stand out even more than Buffalo's collar since it its solid white over a navy uniform.

I believe you're right; the Patriots adopted the standard Nike template, but declined the Nikelace collar. And the Texans took it, but must have insisted that it remain red on the homes.

I think this might be a little like the RBK EDGE takeover of the NHL, where a team like Colorado lost its distinctive mountain-range striping pattern. They could have kept it if they wanted, but didn't say anything when Reebok presented them with their concepts.

There was some room for teams to control their own uniform look, either by rejecting the Nike template altogether or by having it modified.

As a Seahawks fan, these collar issues make me happy we went the route we did! What is confusing to me is that the Washington Huskies have used this toilet seat cover collar for the last few years and imo it looks smaller than the NFL versions and also looks decent on the jersey. Anyone agree with me? Granted I wasn't happy when the Dawgs switched to this style but it has grown on me. Is it smaller? Does the piping make it work? I don't know but to me it looks way better than the saints or ravens.

I agree...this flywire template reminds me a lot of the template designs of the RBK Edge uniforms...

RBK tried to push half-stripes and vertical piping. And a few teams started to look like they chose the same cookie-cutter.
