  • Pretty awful. The helmet is definitely an epic fail. Same goes for the numbers.

    The white and teal versions are also meh.

  • I thought the helmet looked awesome in the Nike photos, and then when I saw it when the players were showing it off, I thought it looked kind of lame. The gradient transition is way too sharp. In the Nike photos it looked more gradual. The numbers will looked dated in a couple years for sure.

  • The Nike guy was over-selling the look. No athlete is going to say the new uniform makes him feel like a Jaguar or it makes him feel some type of aura change due to the uniform. The uniform in natural lighting may give it a different look but yeah, the helmet transition from black to gold wasn't gradual and from the front just looked like the old black helmets.

    Hope it helps their sales dept which is really what matters to the club.

  • Brutal.

    Helmet is truly terrible. Maybe it will look better in the sunlight but I doubt it. The shoulders are really bad too. As with the Hawks, the swoosh is prominently featured on a plain bright background. Clearly Nike is more concerned about branding then creating a cohesive look.

    Nike's college efforts are a lot better. I wonder if they have a different design team working on the pros. Man the Dolphins and Vikings fans have to be sweating waiting for Nike's latest atrocity.

  • The black jerseys are okay but the other two are wretched. And yes, the helmet just doesn't work. Their last helmet was black in normal light but glowed real in direct sunlight; they should have gone that route again with a gold shine this time.

    Dolphins and Vikings new unis are just meh; Vikings jerseys are slightly better than the old ones, but really, they had nowhere else to go but up.

    Strange. I thought the helmet was sick when I saw photos on NFL.com and the jags home site... But in this photo, the gold seems to be almost a yellow, and it's pretty harsh. Looks awkward for sure. If they could tone down that color to a mellow, darkish gold color, I'd be sold.

  • I'm in the "I liked them until I saw the helmets not in concept images" boat. I also think they should just drop the teal outright from their black jerseys, maybe as a highlight on the numbers, but otherwise, they should go black out. If the gold on the helmet was something that really just kind of showed up a bit when hit with light, it'd be cooler. It just looks spraypainted as is.

    I agree. I think the M's are one of, if not the only professional sports team who pulls it off well. I like the Jaguars color scheme, but I think the teal should be played down for the black unis at least.

  • The helmets looked good until I saw them on the mannequins. Now I think they look horrid.

    The numbers are good but I hope they don't try to put that typeface on every team in the league. Old school teams like the Packers will that guy to F off if he tried that crap in Green Bay.

    I think the San Jose sharks did a great job on their sweaters, and look better in teal than in their blacks. Black, to me, is such a copout as a uniform unless you genuinely build your color scheme around it. The Raiders belong in black. The Huskies (for instance) don't. Here's hoping the jaguars don't give up on their color scheme for a blackout.

    Sharks do it well, too, you're right.

    Black has always been one of the main parts of the Jaguars color scheme, so going black out to signify a new direction, perhaps getting meaner and tougher under Bradley works for me. I like their teal jerseys, too, I just don't like too much teal on the black jerseys. I share your feelings towards black out jerseys, generally, though. I think the Huskies doing it is just stupid, it's just a "let's sell fashionable jerseys" thing that seems oddly against tradition. I think when the Detroit Lions did it that it was stupid as well.

  • Ugly suck ducks. ROFLMAO. And its major funny that they'll be stuck with Goldenheads like Notre Dame for at least 5 years (Bradley's full term lease), but, y'know... I think they'll look alright under the Jacksonville sunshine &/or under the lights at night.
    What I don't understand though, is why cant the Jaguars, and especially the Bengals, get cool looking big cat prints on their uni-s like a full coat of tiger stripes and some cool 'Aztec Jaguar Warrior' spots. I think that'd be pretty darn cool. Like if the Bengals all came out looking like tigers, with numbers... instead of just those stupid stripy helmets, with black shirts and white pants... same here with the Jags and their "new upgrades".
    [& don't tell me its not possible 'cuz I seen the Steelers dressed up like prison escapee bumblebees from a low circle of hell (which they totally deserve since 2005 of course), but that's a different posting...]

    Of course I guess the Cinci helmet now is an upgrade to when it was just brown and said BENGALS on the side :P

  • Like the Seahawks uniforms, this is what happens when you design things based on a part-based process instead of design in a more abstract (artistic) sense. Basically, he's taking a bunch of crazy ideas that he thinks are cool and throwing them all together for a uniform, even if they look like shit as a whole.

    That said, I actually really like the uniform, though the helmet doesn't work. I think it was accidental genius, though.

  • Seems like the only uniform that everyone agrees on are the throw backs for the Steelers (that they are FUGLY).

    When I first saw the Hawks uniform I thought they were pretty cool, then on the field I thought they were awesome.

    These aren't nearly as radical of a change as ours were, but I think they look nice (yes, even the helmet). I'm sure they'll look great on the field.

    As for "new uniforms, same Jaguars"...they were saying that about the Hawks last year too.

    But the more pics I'm seeing of the new Jags unis the more I....well I don't hate them. The helmullet is still something I'm not sure about but perhaps the gradient isn't as severe as some of the pics seem to suggest. I'm sure they'll look better on the field.
