the crybabies will get over it, upset about the length of the stripes? really? smh. if you cant already see the quality of craftmanship in the nike uniforms maybe you need a closer look. nike>>>>>reebok and its not even a discussion.. however i do think the reebok brand in general might be more popular among the older crowd, which would actually explain alot..

Reebok>>>>>Nike

Chevy>>>>>Ford

Everybody has their own opinion.

I like the deep steel blue and the really red of the old unis. Do not like the med blue and Denver orange nor the wide neck stripe of the new. But that does not mean I will stop being a fan.

We have to have something to complain about.

This offseason is a little quiet here. We made the playoffs and won our first playoff game. Other than calling for Jacoby's head, there are not the usual "Fire" this person or this person thread.

Can I start one about Rick Smith? Oops!! Not in this thread! I doubt RS had much to do with the uni change. He's to busy f-n up the team!!

BTW! To stay on track! I LOVE the shoes!!

Yeah, we're all so spoiled and ridiculous for complaining that the physical look and identity of our team is changed for the much worse. Stupid.



....at least we're not the Seahawks, I guess.

what's all this crap about new-fangled uniforms made from space-age, lightweight fabrics with built-in padding for player protection, fat stripes on the jerseys, and special, fancy, special V-neck collars..??

In MY day we had skinny stripes on the jerseys and battle red unis that made the players look like walking ketchup bottles and NO padding whatever except shoulder pads...

and that's the way it was and WE LIKED IT!!!

why is it stupid to not like something? If something changes we are supposed to all agree? I'd consider that kinda stupid. Why are people complaining that fans comment on what they are thinking about? Are we all supposed to have some sort of mass-mind thing going on?

I just think its dumb that people who don't like the jerseys are labeled "crybabies" and are just "bitching because its the offseason" and that we're just "fashion police" or something.

Like people who care about how the team looks and don't like ugly ass changes to our uniform (see: brand identity) are somehow beneath everyone else.

I don't care too much about the uniform change. Our uniforms are mediocre at best; not iconic like the Packers, Giants or Steelers, and not lame like the Seahawks, Browns or Jaguars.

A minor change is meaningless.

Personally, I don't like the new jersey design. It appeared to me the narrow band around the neck of the Reebok jerseys with the shield at the base of the neck looked more like a medal than the very wid3e band with the NFL shield lost and embedded in the front of the band.
In the photograph of Meyers, I am also struck by how tight the arm bands appear to be.
I'm just not digging the new look. I also hope that the "battle Red" just looks orang because of lighting. I have never been a big fan of what feels to be a copy-cat of the Denver style, and that Orange hugh just makes it worse.
I guess those of us who would have liked more of the old styling will just have to get used to it.

Another thing I noticed, that I just dont like is the height of the numbers on the front of the jersey. Because of the huge collar they had to lower them, and IMO it looks weird.

Look at this pic of Myers, check out how low the front numbers are:





Anyways, lol....

Offsesaon... Damn, come on DRAFT!

[quote=Vinny;1932048]I don't like how they changed the shoulder stripe either. It's been lowered and broadened and it really looks crappy from the side view.



NO way this is an improvement in look. Just look at how classy our look in in the first image...and look at it now. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FUGLY!!!!!!!!

Old vs New......

Looking at both.....I will stick with the old.....
The New Nike version.....looks out of wack......numbers and collar size......
I would have liked to seen a Mean Toro on the sleeves myself.....

Mean Toro.....as in angry eyes and maybe some blood on the horns......
