Man the Jets and Steelers have ugly throwbacks. I have to say, my favorite throwback aside from ours, is either the Pats or the Lions.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Yeah, I LOVE the Pat Patriot uniforms. Flying Elvis was a terrible idea.

The Falcons, Rams, Bucs and Bills all look great too, along with us of course.

The Jets missed a big opportunity to bring back some great-looking Kelly Green uniforms...instead, the used the Titans identity that no one knew existed and no one likes seeing now.

I think I like the Colts but that "kicked in the back of the head" look is tough to get used to.

I bet the Packers are jealous of our leather helmets. They'd look great with their throwbacks too.

The Steelers' use of their current helmets...seriously...who approved that blunder?

Bucs and Pats throwbacks are great

I decided to redesign PSU's football uniforms for them.

Not a fan of the number font, but aside from that, those Unis are killer. Well done!

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Thanks. I love the way the helmets turned out.

I was not crazy about it either. I was going for a certain look but I don't think I nailed it. MS Paint will do that to you.

I was aiming for the numbers that Ohio State had on their Pro Combats a couple years back. The 49ers also used these numbers a long time ago.




By the way, Petershwin is a common Amish name. Fitting for Penn State.

you bet your boots, they are. those helmets are so lame, wasn't the intention to replicate the old leather helmet look? our 80th helmets are amazing

i love the bucs throwbacks, get me a spurrier jersey

the browns should have thrown the orange pants back in the mix. when is the last time they wore orange pants?

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

So what do we think they're wearing tonight? I'm going with White on White.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

I'm guessing all white too.

Buffalo wore blue last time we played them on the road. We wore the white-on-gold that game actually, but I'm expecting all white for preseason, nothing exciting until the regular season.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

So, we wore White on Gold for the Buffalo game. I know several of you guys here really liked it!

Its going to take me awhile to get used to that look though. I think I would like the look a bit more with the gold color was more "gold" than yellow. But, that's just me. Maybe the throw back gold pants with the white jerseys for away games. But, I also look at it like this: it's change, and change in Washington is always good (no pun intended...lol!) RGIII ushers in, what we hope, to be a new winning era in D.C. But, I have to say, the "butter fly" collar on the jerseys HAVE to go! To me, it looks like they didn't finish coloring the collars. Maybe if the bottom part was gold, it might look better? I dunno. I can get used to the white on gold/yellow, but those jerseys kind of annoy me.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

I think since everyone hates these collars so much, we'll see them gone next season. There's a ton of public hatred being voiced for these things and it's well-deserved.

OK, Nike, we know your technologically-superior collars are there now. We can't miss them. Now, make them blend in with the uniforms so your products don't look like ass.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

I don't mind the butterfly collars as you guys call them. At least on the Burgundy jerseys, they are all solid so you don't notice them. I just don't like the black shoes on the away uniforms with the gold/yellow pants. They should go more team colors... burgundy shoes or more yellow.
