Cincinnati Playoff Uniform

Recommended Posts

Being a Bengals fan since birth I have suffered through some very bad seasons, but now the team has a solid foundation and I can see the playoff's becoming a more familiar sight in Cincinnati. After last years a$$ kicking by the Houston Texans I thought that maybe Marvin Lewis could do something to bring more attitude to the team this time around. I remember Mark Richt going to all black uniforms with Georgia in '07 (or sometime around there) which is where I got the idea. I know the helmet colors are inverted and I added a stripe down the center which the tiger stripes leak out of I am not to sold on the helmet yet but I believe it has some potential to be something. Let me know what you guys think.

I like the idea of a special playoff uniform for Cincinnati. Your execution is great, IMO - I really like this design.

One "big picture" question though - what happens when Cincy plays a road game in the playoffs? Do they go all-white? Or stick with a mostly black look?

lol good question I just want to see the team play with more attitude and when I think attitude I think black. Most likely playing the Pats so i think this uni would work cause don't they wear red or grey?

You got me thinking so I came up with a white set.... I think it came out very well... Kind of a Siberian Tiger look. Also made a change to the helmet and I think that is going to be the final helmet design.

I love the Siberian Tiger look, it's a look I've been wanting to do for the Bengals for a while.

Agreed. Looks very nice.

White kit needs a little orange. Maybe outline the pant stripe and an orange Nike patch.

I really like the pants designs, they have a very sleek look to them. I can't say the same for the jerseys though. I also like the two helmet designs at the bottom (white helmet, black helmet w/o center stripe)...

As a fellow lifelong Bengals fan, that white concept took me by surprise in a very good way. I've seen the orange-on-black helmet a thousand times, but the white and black look is fresh and intimidating. Kind of reminds me of the Brooklyn Nets look.

Great job Greg. I like how you took tweaked the current logo without going overboard. The white makes sense with the Siberian Tiger. The Bengals have a good look and you've improved it. Nice job my friend. As long as the Bengals lettering on the helmet stays away, I think we're all in better shape. Although I wouldn't mind a young Collinsworth, Ken Anderson, James Brooks and Dan Ross. They had some great players back then.

Kudos and Congrats!

Really like the black tops. Nice to see something without those damn white stripes going down them. I think the white would look good if it were made to look like the 80's white. More than likely wherever Cincy goes in the first round they will be wearing their dreaded white mess.

I know this is old, but it showed up under another thread due to the tags. The all white looks AWESOME. Great nod to a story I saw elsewhere in this forum on how the Bengals were named partly due to the white bengal in the Cincinnati zoo. Very cool
