  • Silver helmets don't really flow well with the new uniforms. I know. I tried on madden 13.

  • The only way the silver helmet comes back is in an all throwback uniform. Silver just doesn't work with the new uni. Not against the throwback uni at al but keep the silver helmet to that.

  • Sorry but I don't get the whole "not with our current uniforms" argument.

    Look at this photo of Russ. Tell me a silver helmet would look bad with that uniform. Come on man, it would be sweet! We already have silver/grey highlights in the jerseys...Not sure what the hesitancy is all about...

  • It's still a CRIME that the Seahawks logo isn't displayed loud and proud on the sleeves like the retros. The fact that it's just the Nike logo is a travesty and quite frankly, I am surprised that the 12's haven't made a bigger stink about it.

    We did make a stink about it. For months! I got over it, it looks slick. Admittedly I wouldn't mind seeing a mockup a Hawks logo replacing the swoosh.

    Otherwise, are we ever going to see a freaking throwback uniform for this team?!

    WTF? Name a team that has an alternate helmet.
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.

  • Well I guarantee that after the jealousy diaplayes by the rest pf the league there will be quite a few teams knockin down Nike's door
    And when Nike has shown how much they can do for this league ($$$) they may get a little freedom in opening up more alternate jersey options (all black looks sick!) and possibly more helmet options (a la college ball)

    P.s. The all black would loom good w the green lining on the numbers too!

    white on white - blue helmet
    white on blue - blue helmet

  • The silver with the white/gray uniforms looks pretty badass to me. I'd love that as an alternate, and there's no way in hell the league should say no to that. Other teams have 50 million different uniforms they wear all the damned time.

    And place me riding shotgun on the bus driving to see us wearing throwback uniforms at least a couple of times next year.

  • I think the League needs to loosen up a little. I see no problem with teams having alternate helmets. It would be cool to see what kind of a Silver/Gray helmet they could come up with. I wouldn't mind seeing something with some kind of texture to it (like the carbon fiber helmet Oregon has).

    I love uniform threads.

    Also, I love our new threads. I come from a different generation I guess. When I was a kid I had generic shoes for a while. I was proud to finally have a big 'ol swoosh on my shoes.

  • Not sure if anyone has realize this yet. Take away the neon green from our jerseys and they look very similar to Dallas Cowboys colors. I've even seen some Nike Hawks jackets that I'm fairly certain were the same they used for Dallas, just with the Hawks logo on them. You really want to add a silver helmet to that?

    I get the nostalgia factor. It's the same with when old people tell you how much better their music way back in the day. But just say no to looking like Dallas Cowboy clones.
