Oh I didn't say I didn't like them necessarily. I just said they are boring. Very plain. And that's ok. My point is that franchises can do whatever they want with uniforms. Fans will still rock the jerseys and hats and cheer their heads off. Jacksonville is the only team I've seen actually drop the ball with uniforms and they ended up correcting it lol.

No way. Classic look. Silver is dated. And the cowboys...gross.

Not sure why uniforms are such a big deal to everyone. Is this football or fashion? :D

There are just so many iconic uniforms in football that have basically stayed the same and are classic:

Raiders, Cowboys, Niners, Colts, Bears, Packers, Giants, Redskins, etc.

I don’t love all of the above but I appreciate that they are classic unis with little change to the basic design.

Our uniforms look like crap because we play like crap.  The clown outfits are fitting.  

When we get the LOS straight, we can worry about the color schemes.

They are some of the best uniforms in the game too, especially CHI, OAK, IND

I would be fine with the red and white or the black and silver.  Either one would be classic, and should not be changed ever. Uniforms make a statement, your identity.  Cowboys, Packers etc, are recognized internationally .

Gimme those red ones with the black numbers and black helmets they look good.

Red jerseys with black numbers? Please no!! God no!! Look at the Browns if you want to see just how bad that would look. Browns uniforms actually look really good except for the stupid orange numbers on the brown jerseys, which then forces them to use a white outline to differentiate the difference.That just makes it look awful. There's only two teams that can pull off having colored numbers on top of colored jerseys and that is the Raiders (because silver is close enough to white that it stands out and they don't have to use an outline) and the Rams because yellow dramatically stands out against the blue background, which also means they don't have to use an outline. Black is too dark of a color and would then force you to use white as an outline against the red jerseys to make it stand out and that will just make it look ugly.

KISS and go back to either of these looks!! Don't care which one, but either one would look bad ***!!

OPTION 1 - HOME & AWAY

I agree though, the uniforms are dated. 

Maybe we will win more games if we change uniforms.

Oh yeah I see now!! That is a significant change!!! They are unveiling a new uniform this weekend but just an alternate I’m sure. They won 14 straight divisions in the current unis...why would they change?

Don't know if you're joking on why they made that subtle change or not, but the reason they did it was so that the onscreen graphics used on printouts and on TV would be the exact same color used on the uniforms. Prior to the change there was subtle differences in the colors in the way they appeared on printed materials and on TV graphics compared of the on field uniforms.

These throwbacks right here, with the new logo on them, or with the silver pants and maybe all black socks... and I would be right as rain.

I think blank is too stubborn for a change with him changing them after he came in, we've had a better win percentage for a while than previous years, so I think he feels he doesn't see a need...

Make the throwbacks from 2009-12 the permanent uniforms.   Black jersey, white pants, red helmet with the old logo.   It’s traditional and unique.  

The problem with ‘hip’ designs like the current unis is that they start looking dated fast.   The Falcons current look is very mid-2000s. 

Reminds me of the 90s when many college and NFL teams thought it was dope to shadow outlines on their jersey numbers. That was a terrible fad. As terrible as the 90s fad in MLB for half the teams to start wearing black jerseys with cutoff sleeves even though the majority of the teams that did it (i.e. Mets, Royals, Reds) didn't even have black as one of their colors. That was so awful. Glad when that died out as well.

Looks weak? OMG!! What a dumb argument for not wanting white. That's as dumb as "black is intimidating!"

They used to look even better when they had blue face masks and white shoes back in the 90s.

Actually the Redskins have changed uniforms many times in their history and the 49ers used a dark shade of red for several years in the late 90s and early 2000s before going back to the bright red that Joe Montana made famous in the 80s. The Redskins just always kept the same colors but their helmet and logo have changed many times.

But I do agree with what you're saying. Give me the classic old school look over the crap teams like the Dolphins, Jaguars, Bucs, and Seahawks wear now days.

It is way too early in our offseason to whine about uniforms.  Should wait till the post draft doldrums when we have nothing else to talk about.

Think about our draft pics holding up the new uniform ! Be an awesome way to unveil it.

If this team is going to play with a new attitude like Quinn stated, they should get new uniforms to help set the tone. Blank would be an idiot not too. More money from everyone buying the new merchandise and would give us something to get excited about after a down season.
