Oldschoolvikings' NFL concepts - Falcons added

Second, Vikings. Again, no change to the basic home and road, except for new road socks for the purple pants, to assassinate the leotard.  The all-white gets a new pair of pants to match the jersey. The brand new throwback is from 1969, the Vikings only NFL championship (as usual, they lost the superbowl, but it was the last one before the formation of the nfc/afc so therefore is technically an NFL chip) and includes the amazing 50th anniversary patch.

Next up, Green Bay.  A number of small changes (road sleeve stripes, home collar, sock stripes, 60's number font), probably unnoticeable to the average fan, but to me they would make a huge overall impact.  I'm not sure they'd ever really need to wear the all-white option, but there it is anyway.

Finally, the Lions. They get fiddled with the most.  Since I'm deep-sixing the gray alt, there's no reason to keep those gray outlines on the numbers. Also, the text on the sleeves is gone. Road socks are a must to make the blue pants wearable.  Like the Packers, I'm not sure that they would wear or need an all-white option, but they get it anyway.

I wanted to put the NFC North together on my new template, so as an excuse I gave them all some minor tweaks, one throwback (which most already had) and in place of the stupid color rushes, I gave everyone an all-white uniform. The NFC North is IMO as close to not needing any changes as you'll find in the NFL. So I'm posting them in order from least amount of changes to (relatively) most.

 

First, Bears... really no change to the basic home, road, and throwback, except for moving the GSH tribute to the back collar, adding a second pair of pants and socks for the all-white option, and a gray facemask because I think their helmet looks awesome with the gray mask and (added bonus) will annoy some people.

Bears fan here. I like this one a lot! :)

Well, that was a good time, so I thought I'd move on to another division, giving myself the same basic "rules"... each team will get some minor tweaks, one throwback,  and in place of the stupid color rushes,  everyone gets an all-white uniform.  Unfortunately, the NFC East is not as close to not needing any changes as the NFC North, so in some cases I had to move past "minor" changes.   I'm again  posting them in order from least amount of changes to (relatively) most.

 

First, the Giants. Almost no changes to the basic home and road, but going back to the massively superior gray pants at home. The throwback is from 1933, and it's a beaut.

Next up, the Cowboys. Very little change to the basic white uniform, but everything else gets a makeover. Every time I post a uniform like this someone chimes in with "I like Dallas better in navy and silver", and while everyone is entitled to their  opinion (theoretically) that opinion is nonsense. There are dozens of teams across sports wearing navy and silver, but only one team in royal blue and metallic blue-silver, and that team needs to own it.  Obviously, Dallas needs to unify it's color scheme, but these colors are clearly superior IMO. Thanks to the fabulous one-helmet-rule still being in place (at least currently, fingers crossed) the throwback is technically a faux-back, but since the one-helmet-rule is more important than accurate throwbacks, I'm OK with that.

WFT, adding gold numbers to the jersey to match the ones on the helmet, and bringing back gold pants at home for the color balance. I tried to add a few touches to the number font to tie it in to the new W. The throwback helmet becomes a faux-back helmet, for the obvious reasons.

And the Eagles. They get the biggest change, as they get a color scheme makeover.  I'm trading kelly green for the dark teal, and silver for the charcoal.  Other than that, I tried to keep as much of their current uniform as I could stand.   The number font, which I think currently is atrocious, I tried to modify without just completely dumping it. I thickened the horizontals, leveled off the curves, and  widened each number overall.

NFC West... same rules. (The Seahawks are getting left out.  The one helmet rule really makes them throwback-proof, and I doubt anything I'd design for them could be honestly considered a "tweak".)

 

The Cardinals throwback sleeves are really a far cry from the uniform it's referencing, but what can you do?

Is the number on the throwback the wrong color, or intentional?

Gridiron Database has them wearing a cream/off white color on the numbers and stripes. On my computer it's so light it's easy to miss.  On my phone I can tell the back numbers didn't get the fill. Thanks for the catch.  I'll fix it.

Not bad.  But keep in mind that the Packers used several fonts in the 60s as that sort of thing wasn't nearly as regulated in those days.  I've seen team photos of Henry Jordan (74) and Forrest Gregg (75) wearing completely different 7s. 

Also, I would prefer the pants matched the jersey on the throwback, as was the case in 1944... the last time they won a championship in the "classic Lambeau" look.

Yeah, I shouldn't have said "60's numbers" like that was an actual thing.  It's just a quirk I'd seen in some old pictures that some jerseys had a slightly different font, specifically the 1,2,4, and 7. I just thought it gave a nice subtle vintage feel that really didn't overly alter the basic aesthetic.

 

So are you saying the pants for that uniform were yellow/gold and not that standard brown/tan canvas color?

Hmmm... I've seen that picture before, but I've always suspected it was artificially colored, and therefore might be incorrect.  Gridiron database has them in canvas colored pants that season, although I'm sure that site has it's mistakes...

Hey, @Gothamite, you want to weigh in?  Did the '44 Packers wear gold pants, or tan/canvas pants?
