Yeah, the home jerseys are OK, but I would have rather had the collars all white than the butterfly collar.

Our collar isn't as bad as some. The color looks much better than the Saints with the black collars. Looks like ^THAT GUY^.

no, no they don't

i thought all they did was request that the design on the collar remain the same in look and proportion (unlike the texans-same look/different proportion). i was wrong.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

have you noticed with the the striped socks we wear how every player wears them differently for example rg3 hardly had any burgundy at all on his and fletcher had a whole leg of it and they wear the stripes at various heights too whether it be by the calf or low by the ankle. I dont mind it, it shows individuality, just no sean taylor stripes haha loved those

colts had white collar/white jersey w reebok, now w nike. some teams have had white collars/white jerseys before (colts, cowboys, jets, 49ers). some teams have had color collar/white jersey (eagles=black collar, redskins=burgundy collar, dolphins=green collar)

basically, if your collar was not the same color as your jersey, it has been ruined by nike.

most look stupid because of the horseshoe shape, but teams like the texans look stupid because the collar is so damn wide/thick/bold

Dallas and Oakland too. Los panda hit it..any team that had same-colored collars before is safe from the disco curse.

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

Dallas, aside from the traditional mismatched blues and silver-green pants, has some big issues with their jerseys. Look at the sleeve stripes, especially on the QBs with longer sleeves. That TE in the background has sleeve stripes that look like "=" equals signs.



Romo looks like a nerd:




The Colts still have stripe issues but they don't seem to be as bad the Reebok jerseys:










KC looks sharp:

Here's Romo's 2011 look for comparison:

Re: 2012 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike takes over

The hell? I hope you're JUST talking about the collar.


Not even speaking from my bias, the Cowboys have one of the worst uniforms in the league. They use about 3 or 4 non-matching shades of blue, a silver helmet with that green-silver shade for pants that was designed in the 1970s because of bad colorizing on TV sets of the time and random black outlining the stripes on the jerseys, which are now all F'ed up by Nike. They're a mess.

Yeah. Sorry, thought that was implied. I hate that 70's, half collar that we and the majority of the league sport.

I can't agree with you more. They are terrible. Not only are their green-silver pants strange colors, but it gets stranger with increasing layers of butt sweat. Don't tell me you guys haven't noticed that too.

In West Philadelphia born and raised. On the playground is where I spent most of my days...

Sure you're not really an Eagles fan?
