Like the uniforms, but not so much the helmet.

After seeing the close up I definitely like it. Really original look. Gotta hand it to Nike on this one. Nice job.

Good looking uniform, classy. The metallic numbers and leather textured helmets are great touches.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

for those bitching about the color scheme and its similarity to BC and FSU...what do you want? Those are the colors. No matter what scheme they chose, odds are some other team somewhere has already used it... unless they went with something like this:

That helmet looks great. Kudos to Nike, I can't wait to see them playing in these and I'm thinking about getting one of those jerseys for my next jersey purchase.

exactly what I thought, a bit darker red, but totally BC.

Those might not look so bad if they added a big feather on the helmet, with a helmet or a spear with feathers on the shoulder pads instead of the indian head logo. I dunno, it looks sort of outdated, but I guess that is all in the spirit of a throwback.

Having said that, I would like the skins to take just a slight tip toe into the 21st century and give us an updated logo or design. I feel that since we aren't a winning franchise, and havent won anything in over twenty years, maybe its time for a new logo and a sleeker updated design. Now would be as good of a time as any. New coach (kinda), younger defense, and a brand new stud QB. Put that together with the skyrocketing optimism surrounding our team right now, i feel that if it were a well thought out, bad ass design that everyone would get behind it. Plus, I read somewhere that every time a new jersey or team logo is introduced or "revamped", that profits of jersey and team memorabilia go up an average of 24% versus the average of the previous 2 years. Might be something to think about moving forward with our blossoming franchise.

*** One thing though, just dont let Jay Z or any local area "rapper" come up with the design.

I like them the for "throw back uniform" If they made them into our regular uniform I'd want them do something different for the helmet....
