New York Jets modernization-concept

Recommended Posts

Well, I think it's a pretty common thought on these boards that the Jets' jersey is a very bad fit for the latest templates, and has been for a while. I was just trying to think a little bit out of the box here... how to keep the basic feel of the classic, with the contrasting sleeves and all. I also wanted to dump that drab green. The logo incorporates the original cartoony jet logo, and the jersey wordmark is from the 70s/80s helmet. Anyway, let me know what you think.

I like the concept. This would give them a distinctive jersey and the striping matches the helmet.

One thing I noticed is that your TV numbers are backwards in three of the four looks. By backwards I mean that the green jersey's number is 54 but on the shoulders it would have to read 45. Same with 20 and 87.

I think you can overlook that. Anyways, great concept but I love the gang green as a color for the Jets.

Oh, damn... you're right. Makes me wonder how often I do that!

Edit - OK... fixed it.

I love how stripes like that look on football jerseys. I love it on the Seahawks, and think it would look great for the Browns. Love the concept, and the logo is pretty awesome!

This is top-notch. The only thing I'm not sold on is the helmet. I feel like the logo and stripes don't quite flow.

Excellent! If I could, I'd have those on the field next year!

The helmet logo looks like a Dolphin-Plane, and I don't know if that's necessarily a bad thing.

The bottom stripes on the sleeves throws the whole thing off. I think if you simply kept the sleeves the same color as the jersey, and left only the stripes, it would be perfect.

Well, I was trying to keep the idea from the current jersey that the sleeves contrast the jersey... to me, that's kind of the signature of the Jets uniform.

They should have a green helmet. Two other teams (Bills, Fins) in the AFC East have white.

Any Jets logo that's an actual plane should be futuristic-looking. Ironically, the example that came to my mind was the XB-70 Valkyrie...

...a design that flew in the early '60s.

Maybe some detail to the jet? It looks like a hybrid of two different aircraft. Or maybe sweep back the wings a bit?

I agree that's a pretty derpy looking jet, but it isn't mine. I was just trying to incorporate this logo...

I figured....there's something about the leading edge of the cockpit that screams stealth fighter/bomber....I dunno....
