NEW JERSEYS IN APRIL!!!

Recommended Posts

Q: Speaking of the fans and speaking of excitement, I've gotten a ton of emails from fans who are just beyond excited about the first major uniform redesign in 17 years. Without giving anything away, what was your first reaction when you first saw the new duds and how excited are you to unveil a new look?

AB: Well it's the first time in 17 years that we're changing them which is remarkable to me because I didn't realize it was quite that long. But I did remember when we first bought the team a couple years later that we did change it - and that was a great change at that time. I think that this look that fans will feel, experience and see and hopefully wear is one that's more in keeping with a contemporary look and feel that our fans are looking for - a little more flair. I think the level combinations is one of the things that struck me about the tops and bottoms, the way they could be combined and put together provides a lot of options. The players had a lot of input in the uniforms; you know, they have to wear them. Beyond that, they're young and they're hip and they get it. They want to wear something that looks good on them. I think the uniforms will good on them and even better on our fans.

Q: I'll take that as you like the uniforms a lot then?

 

The players having an input on the design is interesting.

Ok, I gotta admit, I love the Jets new design.  The green chrome with the New York on the front of the jersey.  The black incorporated with the green.  If we did something like that with the red and black, I’d be happy.

Same here, I like the Jets new uniforms!

Based upon these comments, I fear us guys in the throwback camp may be in for a bit of a let down.  I do t mind an updated style w classic look but I fear Denver, Seattle, etc... ever hopeful but the “young hip” part worried me.  I dont hate Jets uni but Denver and Seattle don’t look nfl to me.

I don't think you can mention the Broncos since they came out with their uniforms in 1997. Trends and designs have changed dramatically since then.

The 49ers look is a pretty good. I'm not a massive fan of the Jets uni with New York across the front of the Jersey. I'm more of a 'less is more' type guy and only want to see the numbers on the front of the Jersey.

I think we're going to end up with something like this, which isn't the end of the world, but not the throwback look of the 60's/90's many are hoping for.

Flair? No one is looking for flair AB.

Literally 0% of the fan base is asking for flair 

man these unis gonna be some new age bullhockey that’s supposed to be hip and cool, but ultimately looks gimmicky and overdesigned.

I’m starting to get this feeling too... I was hoping for some sort of throw back made modern but now I think it’s going to be similar to the Jets, Titian’s, Seattle, but with our colors of course

MAYBE....Blank thought contemporary meant simple? So he was actually saying they're simple with a little modernized touch? I can dream right? 

If they're something super modern, it would explain Tabeek's 'not what I expected' comment along with him saying he eventually loved them (acquired taste).

He said he loved them more in person. Yall are taking things and making them more than what they are. 

Let's wait until we see them before freaking out. Sheesh.

I dunno man.  The fact that he said they were not what he was expecting kinda puts the nail in the coffin.

I feel like our current uniform was an acquired taste and it’s one that I still haven’t fully acquired the taste for.  I put it in the “eh, it’ll do” category.

For all you know the dude expected

These.

Since when did this one guy become the uniform guru? One dude says they weren't what he expected and that suddenly means they're bad?

Yep, I agree.  I’m sure many will love it but for me it’s no btr than what we have except they now can sell 3 jerseys plus a throwback.   I’m a basic kind of guy too.  Less is def more but AB is abt the $....the “experience” etc.  I don’t give a **** abt that.  I wanna look like a longtime NFL franchise that doesn’t need the gimmicks.  Just win baby!!!  If they win maybe I’ll warm up to this new age uniform stuff as well.

They were (imho) a ltl on cutting edge back then.  I have never thought they improved upon their older uniforms (orange crush w snorting bronco on helmets).  I know it’s just one persons opinion but my point was “I felt classic look was much classier” but.....I realize others like the more modern new age looks.  I’m personally old school.  Love bears, Cleveland, packers, Dallas, San Fran for most part, giants, chiefs, Vikings, cardinals etc.....may have tweaked a ltl bit same classic sheme as I grew up with.  I even prefer the old patriot unis.  Love those orig nfl unis.  That’s what makes it NFL to me.  Kinda like “trust” and all the other fly by night corporate slogans, colors, emblems.

He also said he "liked them". He didn't say he LOVED them on twitter. Which scares me LOL

I agree with you. I'm all about the classic look. I miss the old orange crush Broncos uniforms. Even mentioned during the season how much better the Steelers jerseys look with the old block style number when I saw them play a game wearing those jerseys.

I don't see nothing wrong with the Jets, Titans, or Seahawks uni's.

 

I think they all look pretty cool.

 

Only the Bucs, Browns, and Jags(not bad, but they are very bland) uni's are actual Nike failures in my opinion.

Yeah, I still can't figure out what made the Steelers change to those italic slanted style numbers.

 

Those block numbers were perfect. I still remember Rod Woodson's #26 Steelers jersey.
