That's a REALLY cool picture... ruined by the uniforms
They just look like dirty whites under the spotlights, maybe grey on blue would work

My only issue is that the sweat patch in the middle of the jersey was really distracting from the overall look- monochromatic isn't bad until it isn't monochromatic. I would also rather see them with the blue pants, but we did just hang a Kennedy on those Bills...(maybe better a Grant since they're Bills?)

I actually texted my friends about how awesome the all wolf grey uniforms looked. Sorry, Aros, gotta disagree with you on this one.

If they were dark, they'd look straight wierd.

They need to be altered so that the big sweat-block on the front shows a Seahawks logo when it gets wet.

I love the gray pants - kind of a nod to our silver days. The gray top would work much better with the blue pants, imo.

I'm not as passionate one way or the other about them as I thought I'd be when I first saw them, though. I like them, but I still like our standard unis better. The all-white look is sharp as hell - really crisp and clean.

Don't care for the all greys. Just looks like a bad laundry day.

I DO like in order:

Home:
--Blue top, grey pants
--All blues

Away:
--White top, blue pants
--All white
--White top, grey pants

Aros, what alternative uni idea do you have? For me, utilizing the action green as a primary is not an option LOL

Love my wolf grey Thomas jersey. Wear it every game day while the rest of the fam rocks the blue home jerseys.

The grey is just OK for me. I'd like em better without the neon green outlining of the numbers. Just doesn't work all that well.

I think the all grey uniforms did not work against the very dull green color of the turf in Toronto. They blended into the background a bit too much. Maybe on a different field that was more green than grey.

Frankly the best road combination I've seen is the white jersey with the blue pants. They used that combo in the Denver preseason game.

Agreed...and edited my post to reflect that. Thanks for reminding me of that combo.

I've been pretty consistent in saying this, I don't dislike any of the colors, it's the combinations that I don't like. By that, I mean the single color pant/jersey combos. I Like any of the mixed combos together, just not the monotones. They just don't work for me.

As for the green shoes, I don't think they make the grey or any other uniform look bad, but the green shoes themselves do look bad no matter what they are worn with.

Finally, I really don't care. As long as the players like what they are wearing, and have no issues with them, then I say let 'em wear whatever combo they can.

We are undefeated in the Wolf Gray, that's all I care about

Yep, this pretty much settles it. I've always loved the Wolf Grey as compared to the whites, and now there's no argument. :3:

I told my wife, for an indoor game in the month of December, they didn't work for me. Maybe in another environment (rain? snow? night game?) they would look sweet, but I was unimpressed. I love the blue top, white bottom combo.

The fact that they were indoors sort of made the grey look weird. I see that in a lot of domes.

I remember how much different the Old Royal Blue looked at the Kingdome in person compared to on TV.

You and I are on the same page. The monochrome thing is what I don't care for. I also agree with others who say that playing in a dome with a dull background didn't help. The Toronto Stadium had a feel like a Tacoma Stars indoor soccer game from the 80's. The arena just didn't have a feel of a real NFL stadium.

Not a huge fan of the all grey's. I agree with some here that the grey jersey itself looks pretty awesome, however too much of that grey makes me feel like I'm watching Bastion Booger. Old wrestling fans will know who I'm talking about. And just because I hate you guys...

Image

I would prefer something like this, a darker gray like Aros says. Although I am biased...

Image

Regardless, I haven't once looked at a Hawks game this year and gone "damn, those jerseys are hideous!" So I'm good!

I've always thought that they could have gone slightly darker with the grey all around. In the logo it's so light that in the wrong lighting it just looks white. I don't think I'd go all the way to #55, but a shade or two darker would have been ideal IMO.

Putting the grey jersey over grey pants didn't help, either. I've seen some photos of the grey jersey next to the white and blue jerseys, and using either of those colors next to it make it pop out a lot more as being "true" grey. That being said, I still really like them. I'm sure now that grey over blue will be my favorite color scheme. Hopefully they pull it out next year.

Oh, here, I found one of the pictures:

The lighting's not great but I think you can see what I mean. Some contrast really brings it alive.

Grey on Blue would be perfect.

Not a big fan of Blue on White, Grey on White, or White on White.

Love our Blue on Blue home

and White on Blue away

Grey is awesome too and I love my grey #12 but I fell prouder rocking the home blue down here in Texas, it just pops with the contrast of green and blue

On TV they just look like white jerseys that are dirty. Especially non-HD TV. I was in a bar in Cleveland, Ohio watching the game (My daughter had her university graduation from Cleveland State U earlier that day) and they just looked dirty, especially in the lighting conditions in the Toronto stadium.

The grey look is a pants-left-in-wash kind of colour.

But I've decided I don't care anymore, as long as they're winning.

I liked the All Grey. I agree though that the belly sweat patch looks like crap. I've thought that of some of the college teams I've seen in that color.
Would love the see the grey pants become the standard put those with the blue shirt at home and the white shirt away. Throw in the blue pants with away jersey every once in a while.
The grey pant just reminds me of the original uni design and I like it!

Also, on that picture... Dang, I didn't realize how big Unger was! He looks bigger than Big Red!

The grey jersey on the blue pants is my favorite combo to wear in Madden, but the blue on blue is my fav in real life. White on white didn't look too bad, but the grey on grey looked a little washed out (or perhaps that's just the effect being in Toronto has on everything). I liked grey/grey, but I didn't love it. Next time we go Alternate, I hope it's grey on blue for SNF.

The one thing I really liked about the grey jersey is the way it made the grey really pop on the helmet. Very classy look.

Sweat patches are a little excessive though.

I like all the different combinations they can do with the new uniforms and glad they take advantage of them. Yes I liked the all grey.I would like to see the blue jersey with the grey pants at some point though. I bet that they probably go with the all blue Sunday though.

I have a sweet picture of Beef Moe as my screen saver in the all grey .

I was worried about them before the game because I thought they were gonna look terrible but then immediately upon seeing them I loved them. I think they are my favorite uniform and looked fantastic.

I don't hate them now that I've had time digesting them (with billions of replays showing how we systematically destroyed the CFL Bills in them) but I will always stand by the idea that Nike should have gone a couple shades darker than they did. Like I've said all along, it's too close to the whites in shade. I want our alts to be gloriously different than our home and aways.
