How set in stone are the all black/all white as our home and away uniforms?

Black-on-black and white-on-white eh? Where have I heard that before...

;)

I said already that black on black are “taint wannabes”. That’s y’all thing. Works for y’all.  I hate these.  I’m a black on white home and white on white road uni guy myself.  Stick w basics and just leave that silly ltl gradient thing in a souvenir shop.  This is big boy pro football.  Good ole fashion hate requires we never copy our enemies color scheme. This is prbly enjoyable for y’all though no doubt!

Hahah, I don’t know if it’s “enjoyable”, but it’s always nice to have another jab readily tucked away in the arsenal for a rainy day of trash talk. :lol:

And I feel you, I’m VERY conservative when it comes to uniforms, especially ours. I hate any type of change (no matter how small) with very rare exceptions. Our all-white Color Rush uniforms being one, but I think what helped our Color Rush really stick was it is essentially a throwback.

And man, I can’t believe that gradient jersey thing was not only suggested for a pro football team’s uniform, but it was actually approved and manufactured, even as a prototype. This is flashbacks to that butt ugly Jaguars helmet from a few years back.

:barf:

I can’t man.......you can trash talk till your hearts content but if you bring up that gradient man......that’s too low and even beneath our rivalry!!  You as a self respecting pro football fan can’t go there.....it’s off limits......watch em try to pull that **** out for our home game. But to your point, there’s just something about NFL football...the uniforms are so important.  I think it goes back to when I was a child (late 70s to 80’s) and you could get your favorite teams uniform from sears, JC penney etc catalogs etc. maybe it’s just a generational gap bc some of younger folks seem to not care so much. I’m 48 btw......either way....enjoy this **** show dude!  I’m sure I would if it were y’all’s!!

These uniforms have contrast.  They’re not all black or all white.  The new uniforms have sets that stay true to being modern and new with a slight homage to nostalgia (and honestly some kickbutt design).  These should be our standard home/away/alternate uniforms

Problem solved.  It’s not about being an exact replica of the old that many of us desire.  It’s just the feel and essence that we want.  This gets it done.  Not the pajama style all black or white onesie.  That look is good for a change of pace every now and then, but I believe the black/white, white/black, white/red covers all bases of what fans really want while keeping things classy and original.

These would’ve been AMAZING

Hahah, nah I wouldn’t be able to pull out the insult about the gradient. I honestly feel bad that not only will y’all possibly wear that thing, but y’all front office thinks that it “looks good”.

And agreed! It’s definitely a “thing” for all of us fans to hold our teams’ uniforms in high regard and for them to be as awesome as possible. But I definitely remember the replica uniform sets you mention from the JcPenny catalogs and also Sears. I’m not that young. :lol:

Yes, we all know how much you visit porn hub. Can we stick to football though? 

Come on now, man. You ain’t got to loud cap me in front the whole dang forum like that! Eesh! :(

But at least something is going to get to “rise up” in 2020 when the Falcons aren’t. :lol:

I’ve studied this black on black extensively.  Lord let them give us gray or silver if they won’t use white pants at home for primary.  This all black is not what fans as a whole asked for.  It’s not even as good as mean machines last uni on the longest yard remake. McKay have your marketing team watch the movie and you’ll eventually get it.  Now I’m afraid they’ll go “mean machine” w Cheetleaders too!!

We have gray pants? I hope so

Good lord those Grey pants make those jerseys look amazing. I thought it was just the pants at first but they made the ATL smaller too. I'm not a petition guy but we need a petition for Grey pants. That's an easy enough fix.

From what I read on STFB yesterday, Quinn said the jersey combos are going to be picked by the players. So im sure the first home and away game will be black/black and white/white but we can see any combo there after. I believe the Gradiant jersey is going to be the color rush and the old school look is the Alts.

Black on black is actually my least favorite option (including the gradient :ninja:).

Think they look a bit arena league.

Those are the two that even come close to being 2020ish, and the ones I like the best. Call them Arena Football if you will, but Nike has redesigned the look of football uniforms going forward for the better. Look at Oregon.

Also like the larger logo on the helmets. Gives the team an identity, sort of like the Rams or Viking helmets.

Still wish Nike had done the designs.
