    Better than what they had been wearing but they should have gone all the way back to old logo with the standing buffalo.

    Not a bad looking uni. Are there league rules about when or how often teams can change uniforms? I'm sure they must be approved. Can they do it whenever they get the whim?

    I'm not sure what the league rules are for uniform changes but I like their "old school" logo from the 60's and early 70's.

    The new unis look like something from Yo Gabba Gabba. Those arm stripes on the home jerseys have a very circus vibe.

    Well, Fred Jackson makes it look cool. Lets see the uni on Fitzpatrick, Moorman or a big ugly.

    Whoever created that graphic, IMO, has jacked with the hue and saturation levels in Photoshop. The colors on the stripes, particularly, are almost "neon" in tone. The pants on the away version have shadow distortion due to jacking with the hue and saturation settings. Amateur hour.

    As you'll see, the color levels had been jacked with to extreme limits.

    Here's a better snap of them, from the www.buffalobills.com splash page:

    I actually like THIS helmet design. LOL.

    I think Jack Del Rio gave his famous "Chopping Wood" speech to that gang.

    Good call, GP. The colors are definitely more subdued in the real pictures.

    The unis in the first post and the picture you posted are different. Look at the arm strips. The first pic has two sets of stripes, so there are four white stripes. On the real pic you posted, there is one set of stripes, with just two white stripes.

    The socks on the away unis are different in each picture, too.

    And not to make fun of the dude, but what is up with the one with a missing limb? Is he an actual player?

    I think the pics I posted were from a "leaked" view before the official announcement. I could not find a good picture of the new logo on the helmet for the real uniforms.

    IIRC, that's the helmet they went to the season after OJ Simpson ran for 2000.

    Yeah, the guy did this:

    1. Used photo from last year, put it into photoshop.

    2. In photoshop, he selected the areas of the jersey that were red...

    3. Then he went to the Edit --> Image Levels menu

    4. He then jacked with the CMYK levels so that the red in the jersey became a blue. But then that messes with the shadowing (areas around the thigh pads).

    He tried to adjust an old photo to make it look like the specs for the new jerseys.

    Their jerseys look like a Pro Bowl uni, but that's just me.

    BTW, there is an espn.com section that pops up sometimes and deals with nothing but uniforms. It's awesome. It will show close-ups of various versions of the team's uniforms and give crazy stats and information about the history of jerseys. Really really cool.

    Ahh I see. That's pretty neat. I had no idea that there was someone in the NFL was playing with prosthetic.
