Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

Another issue with expanding to international countries with NFL teams...specifically the Jaguars...last week when they played in London, they kept the "Jags" patch on their jerseys. Certain terms we use mean other things in other countries.

In England, "jags" is an offensive term to insult someone, also used as "jag-off". It's similar to their word "wanker" in meaning and it usually used in place of the American word "idiot".

Nice move, NFL.

Well then is there a team more befitting of the term "Jags" then?

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

Great surprise yesterday.


They managed to pull it off despite the stupid helmet rule. Removing the stripes looked great!


I actually wouldn't mind them switching to this full-time with a few minor tweaks like the facemask color and logo consistency. With those flaws, it still looks great....awesome color scheme is probably to thank for that.

Glad they did this. I was certain with the new stupid helmet rule, those uniforms were dead. Nice compromise, Skins, it worked out well.



And better yet, we FINALLY WON in a throwback uniform! Maybe we'll wear them again...I'd love to see them vs. Dallas.

I say add the new logo to the sleeves and change the facemask to a matching "old" gold and make it the new uniform!

I'd love it.

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

Here's my proposal for a new uniform. Made the mask and gold in helmet logo match the numbers and used the new logo on the sleeves.

Yeah it would look better with that facemask, they would need to match up the burgundy a little better too. Up close the helmet and jersey clearly didn't match. From a distance it's not too noticeable though.

The one helmet rule is killing the throwback stuff.

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

Why on earth did they take he field with the regular helmets?
Still, found out we were wearing throwbacks before kickoff and was pleseantly surprised.

Robert doesn't wear the knee brace during warmups.
Pierre, royster and Alfred carpooled whih I thought was cool. Alfred doesn't sign pictures or portraits. Garcon doesn't seem to sign ever

A lot of it was the metallic. It really pops in the sun. Looked almost the same in the shade.

We could have switched out for the black facemasks from the leather helmets too. Chicago swapped on gray masks earlier this season for their throwback uniform.

Certainly looked a LOT better than in 1994.

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

Monkey brought this up earlier, but I was thinking the same thing after the game was over... WE FINNALY WON A GAME IN A THROWBACK! I think this is the first time ever.

You guys are right with the colors being mis-matched. It almost like the helments are burgundy and the throwbacks are maroon or something.

I loved the '94 throwbacks but yeah, the ones we wore yesterday are better.

That's exactly what it is.








I was worried when I saw the throwbacks too...they WERE cursed until yesterday.

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

I don't know who comes up with the decision on when they wear their throwbacks, but they look sharp. Glad we could win with them. Not having the leather looking helmets kinda sucks though. They did the best they could with our modern helmets, but they are not the same. The old gold is more of a bronze than the yellow and I really like it in the numerals.
