The helmet now has "teal flakes" in it, seen here:

The unis look a bit like the University of Arizona's look. The teal flakes thing looks nice.

Overall, I like the old look better, but the new look is good nonetheless.

Kind of generic but kind of old school. I'm ambivalent.

They look like a CFL or AFL team's uniforms.

it looks just like the old ones. Like the Lions', the new unis are just an update rather than 'a new look'.

To an extent, yeah. I meant look as a generic term for unis + helmet.

From what I can see I like them. Sort of sucks for me though because I bought one of the now old jerseys only a like 6 months ago.

But it's a throwback now, so congrats.

I'll probably get a MJD one of the new ones eventually.

I actually think there a big resemblance to the University of Miami (FL) jerseys. I kind of like it.

Slightly modified and updated. Nice, but I'll reserve final judgement for better qaulity pics. Camera phone?

The jerseys/pants look too dull to tell for sure how nice a look it is - especially compared to the better quality photos of Brunnell. The teal peel in the helmets is pretty cool though. Can't wait to see that in HD.

I think they're okay. I still think that the white pants and white jersey looks better for away though. I also thought that green numbers looked better than black.

Doesn't get more awesome than that. I'll bet that bowling ball was dressed like a ****, too.

Here is a better look at them.

Nice - much better sheen to them in the shop pics. I liked the Jaguar on the sleeve from the old white ones, but other than that they look good.

That looks WAY better than they did on the players. On the players, I felt like I was looking at faded Eagles jerseys.

I think they'd look better with black pants. And they should still wear the all black at least 1-2 times a year. The all black uni's are awesome. I've always like theirs and the ravens all black ones.

Overall, not bad.

Mr.Regular
04-22-2009, 03:05 PM
Look pretty cool IMO....only problem is that their is barely any teal on the away jerseys, which is their primary colour.

First the college nike and under armour teams make their uniforms look like arena league garbage and now it's seeping into the NFL, yikes. Actually, Jax's uniforms are a little nicer and more well designed than those cookie cutter college unis. The helmets are unique at least too.

Agreed. That first picture made it look like they were made for a created team on Madden 2004. The Mo Drew jersey looks alright, but kind of blan, yet metallic. Can't say I'm a fan. I never figured out why the Jaguars are ugly teal anyways.

The lack of gold is a disappointment. It was a unique color. They look alright, but a bit bland. I think that dull gold could have been used to really make them stand out, really make them unique. As for the helmet, it's.....pretty...I guess.

Pretty much a sideways move IMO - not worse, not any better. Just different. I guess sometimes just different is better. Not really sure I see how this is identity defining, though.

The team's justification for it is that they've had about 4359349 different uniform combinations in the past few years and wanted to standardize it. However, I really don't think it's anything more than a ploy to generate some additional revenue for a team that is really struggling for it.

As for my opinion on the uniforms...eh. They're whatever. Simple is good, and they went simple. I hate looking at uniforms and seeing a kaleidescope of random colors flying across the screen. Makes me feel like I'm having a seizure.

They are getting rid of the black alternates, unfortunately.

And YFS is right. This was a standardization move plus a revenue move. While the uniforms aren't really better overall, it's a good move for the franchise.

Oh, and about the Iggles thing...I think it's because of the greener looking teal, no? Well, the teal's the same; it was just the resolution of the video feed that made it look greener.

This. They could have just, I dunno, not worn the all black look anymore if looking like the Ravens was an issue?

And they still have the white jersey and black pants for away, no? That still resembles the Ravens. Why not go white/teal.

White/teal is ugly, imo. They also may be confused with the Dolphins too much if both the home and away unis are a few shades away from the Dolphins' - differentiating the away helps keep distance.

I thought all white for away was best. Too much black on those away uniforms, should have gone with green numbers.

The old all whites with teal numbers that they'd wear at hot ass home games early in the season were so sexy...

I think the new uniforms look ugly. Why would you take out the gold? Its part of your team colors. Keep the gold in there and then you have a good uniform. The helmet looks great though.
