NIKE NFL Uniforms

Recommended Posts

Panthers page looks like they don't have the "helmet" t-shirt up. Not sure if that means anything, just something I noticed.

Somewhere, there are hats with the helmet on them. Aside from the logo, they look the same.

Good. They shouldn't change the uniforms. IMO, the current set is lightyears ahead of any of the red-white-blue uniforms they ever wore.

I knew they wouldn't (they're going to hold onto the Super Bowl Era uniforms for as long as possible), but I was holding out some hope.

Now that it appears the only thing that is changing is the logo, and that the uniforms and helmets are staying the same, I'm pissed. Why throw away an identity that you entered the league with just to change the logo? .

Because aside from silly helmet stripes, the logo was the only thing wrong with their identity.

Please. The Carolina uniforms are so dated and are baby-butt soft looking. Those light blue socks worn with all white jersey's are horrible.

Here they have potentially the most marketable player in the next decade on their team and they are going to stay with those sorry-ass looking uniforms? Really smart thinking on that one. I guess the Steve Beurlein era was just too tough to get rid of.

Carolina has a great POTENTIAL for their color scheme. They just have played-out uniforms.

It would've been tricky for the Panthers to change number fonts without looking too much like the Steelers. Trade Gothic (the font used for their new wordmark) & Futura numbers look very similar.

Sure...because the Lions' and Bengals' numbers don't share any similarities...to teach other, or to the Bears' numbers...right? :P

IMO the Panthers actually have really good uniforms. Just enough touches of modern to not look like they're claiming fake heritage (a la the new Tampa Bay Lightning identity) whilst subdued & classy enough to have a vaguely timeless quality about them.

There's a reason they are THE last original look standing amongst the 90s expansion teams across all 4 of the major leagues.

:blink:

What does that mean? "Insufficiently 'XFL'"?

I'm going to bet that the red piping on the home jerseys is taken off. There's really no need for it, especially since the pants/whole uniform look better without the piping.

Hoping the side panels are taken off the road jerseys, but I doubt it.

I was hoping they would freshen up their look a bit. They've made a ton of money off the current jerseys so I figured they'd come out with something new and make some more money.

Yeah. The full removal of side panels from both jerseys might be enough for me to start liking these things again. Maybe.

Yeah, but I bet the Krafts don't want to mess with the jerseys that they've had the most (read:only) success in.

I think the white pants, if they're still being used, are completely superfluous and add absolutely nothing to the look. And while, save that, the helmet stripes might be the only thing "wrong", they're really, really wrong.

The team easily could have tweaked the look and had something going forward that was exceptional.

In all honesty, the team was pretty good in 1996 and 1997 (Bruce Armstrong! Ben Coates! Terry Glenn! Drew Bledsoe!), but that truly pales in comparison to the Brady era.

And I loved those mid-90s uniforms. They were perfect for that era.

Speaking of Bledsoe, it's unreal to think that the ten-year contract he signed before the 2001 season would've ended last season.

Nah, their whole identity has become stale, just like the Broncos. Both could use a major update. I would have liked to see the Panthers switch to something like these:

...except with the Panthers' colors and some cat-scratch striping on the sleeves.
