Exactly


The Jags....


The Dolphins look alright, and the Vikings going retro is cool.

Remember those tacky pickups from the 90's with the 2 tone paint jobs that looked crap? Same concept. Makes sense I guess I bet the mullet and z cavarrichis are still popular in Jacksonville too.

Soon all unis are going to be like this. Definitely will look out of place.

This is awful. Worst uniforms in the NFL without any doubt in my opinion.

Arena ball uniform.

You don't see those paint fades on trucks these days, but least when you do they are even and gradual, which would not describe those helmets!

I think that the half-gold and half-flat black helmet was just to show the two paint schemes but on the same helmet.

There's another photo where the entire helmet is gold.

There's no way they would do something so dumb looking. Then again, they put black tarps on empty spectator sections in their stadium...and have two guys in their war room.

Why wouldn't they just show 2 different helmets? If what you're saying is true that is pretty cheap and pathetic.

On the NFL network, they're saying it's a two-tone helmet.

OK, so after reading you guys' posts...and going back and looking at the photo again...I can now see that in this photo it DOES fade to black just in front of the jaguar's mouth.

My bad. I had thought that the darkness in that area was just lack of lighting.

That's pretty much a fugly design. I'm in the wrong business...I should be re-designing football helmet paint/design schemes. I don't know how this stuff gets past all levels of decision making in an NFL organization. At some point, shouldn't someone, somewhere, stand up and say "We can't fade a gold color to a black on the helmet. One or the other, but not both."???

Sheesh.

Default Re: Glitter Kittys get new uni's.......

And as for classic vs. new unis... well, the Seahawks have nice new unis, but they have nice colors to go with too (not the ugly neon green, but Nike used that properly as an accent rather than a primary color) and Nike didn't go overboard with those.

I just don't like the palette the Jags have to work with. I hate gold, teal is situational, and black is okay. But the helmet looks like crap, though the black jersey is actually pretty decent (teal being an accent instead of a primary color)

Definately a 2 tone helmet as seen in the NFL uniforms leak photo. I don't like the Dolphins either. They should have stuck with the aqua blue facemask and from this photo is looks like they took the orange away from the helmet stripe. The logo is pretty lame also. I see a lot of Dolphins stuff on cars around here, I wonder how many are going to be updating to the new logo.

I may be having a brain fart but are there any teams that have two different color helmets, by that I mean two separate helmets, which they swap out with their uniforms?

Only with their throwbacks, I think.

Hey, I was the same way at first. I saw that picture and thought the helmet was completely gold. But someone told me to take a closer look and... yeah. That's fail.

Horrible .. if you are going to do a 2 tone have the gold in front and the black in back. That way you can say the Jag is coming out of the shadows. The way it is now you can just say the Jag is fading into the darkness (which is appropriate).

They could have went with the gold with black jaguar spots (ala Bengals) and keep the logo where it is.

The new unis themselves are not bad, but the helmet is hideous. It looks bush league, and like Hookem mentioned, I'm surprised it was approved by the NFL.
